Why Partner with Us?
When you choose to work with us, you get a specialized team working with you – for the price of one standard realtor. Our commission is the same as most other leading realty companies. This alone makes for great value, but there’s more.
Being able to identify the potential of investment properties is an art and a science. We’re well versed in both aspects.
The science is in the numbers – knowing how to project property values, factor in impactful upgrades, calculate rental income, etc.
The art is in envisioning the possibilities of the property – both in terms of the location factor and the space itself.
As residents of Calgary, investors, and realtors browsing the MLS all day, we have our finger on the pulse of market trends as well as community-specific data.
Not all communities are the same, and even within a given community, property value can fluctuate greatly.
We know which subtle elements to look for to help you pinpoint the best types of properties and areas – specific to your investment plan and goals – or just a good deal!
We’ve been investing in Calgary real estate since 2012 and manage our own portfolios.
Whether you are looking for short-term or long-term rental properties, BRRR (Buy, Rehab, Refinance, Repeat), flipping houses, or multi-family developments – we’ve done it all and can help you navigate.
In some cases, we’ve learned the hard way and you can benefit from our experience here, too. Get insight and avoid potential pitfalls when we review properties together.
Investment real estate all comes down the numbers. A deal that may appear solid at first glance may not actually perform well.
Other realtors may not be as familiar reviewing or creating proformas (a financial statement projecting expenses and income using historical data and market information) and may not be able to spot key points.
We’ll run the numbers with you to determine if a deal makes financial sense at the end of the day.
There are a lot of admin tasks involved in real estate – permit applications, legal documents, tax deductions, bookkeeping, accounting, etc.
Whether it’s professional advice from our partners or little tips from our years of experience – get advice on how to run the administrative side of real estate investing so you can avoid costly mistakes.
