september_2020_calgary_real_esate_market_updateThe Calgary Real Estate Market has seen many ups and downs this year, and even this last month. There are pockets of the city that have seen drops in their inventory while seeing an increase in their number of sales.

All the while, across the city we haven't seen prices increasing, we have seen markets change to be more of a balanced or even sellers market in some areas.

Sellers, if you are planning on listing in the coming weeks, make sure you come to market with a strong strategy and plan. Know your competition as well as what values of what is selling. Getting a stager in to help prep your home and getting high quality photos and video is key to maximizing your opportunities.

erin_dupont_calgary_realtorErin Dupont may be relatively new in the real estate industry, and to the Chamberlain Group, but she is already wowing her clients and colleagues with her thoughtful approach and superstar service.

Growing up with her mom as a full-time realtor, Erin credits some of her industry knowledge to years of learning by osmosis and says 14 years living overseas plus raising two active boys is the secret to her ability to stay calm under pressure.

It is easy to see why she is rising so quickly since joining our team, and we are so proud of her accomplishments!

On the way to her latest possession, Erin took a few minutes to talk with us about her experience transitioning to a team environment after starting out as a solo agent.

does_moving_up_mean_bigger_is_better_chamberlain_real_estate_groupMoving Up to a new home sounds like fun. But does it always mean a bigger home and more space? Not always. Sometimes making a move up means moving into an area that you've wanted to be in a long time and you are getting more life and location than you are home. Meet Melissa, who is a client of Chamberlain Real Estate Group and did just that. Her and her family moved in a couple weeks back and are loving the new life they are creating for themselves.

If you have questions about moving up, let us know what they are and how we can help you too!

Jared:
Are you considering moving up and making a change during this pandemic? We're going to talk to one of our past clients and current clients who actually did do that exact thing, and dig into it. So

back_to_school_calgary_chamberlain_real_estate_groupDecisions, decisions… Back to school in Calgary looks quite a bit different this year. No matter what you decide for your kiddos, our team has put together their favourite tips to make the most of the new school year!

You get an office, and you get an office!

If you’ve moved to a work from home setup, you understand the importance of a dedicated workspace. It’s possibly even more important for your school-aged kids to have a study area where they know they can go to focus. Think home office, but way cuter.

Here are some items you may want to include:

  • A desk with storage and organizers
  • A comfortable chair (sure, they’re kids, but you do not want to pay for chiro later)
  • Good lighting
  • Studious décor (a map or fun academic posters)
