As far back as I can remember I have been in love with real estate. This love stems from my early years, when I spent my summers at my grandparent’s farm. As a kid, milking cows and riding tractors was the coolest, but my time on “the farm” instilled something deeper also. The pride and hard work my grandfather put into his land was inspiring; I witnessed how his Property provided life to generations of our family. From then on, a house became more than just dirt, lumber, doors and shingles. A home was my safe place, a jumping off point for my dreams to take flight. Whether I was dreaming of scoring goals like the Great One or running a business like my father, those dreams were rooted in my grandfather's backyard; talking, learning and reflecting on life with my family.
I grew up in inner-city Calgary. Hockey was my first true love and will always hold a special place in my heart. That love and passion fuelled many great years at the rink. My time as an athlete shaped much of who I am today. Hard work and passion became pillars of my success. I have found a way to bring passion in all that I do.
I left university to start a career at my father’s construction supply company. I worked my way up from shipping/receiving to managing the northern operations. I spent many years consulting and supplying residential contractors and home builders with concrete building products. My passion has always driven me to achieve the highest level of customer service. The more difficult a project, the more opportunity for me to problem solve and troubleshoot. My love for a good challenge has had my steel-toed boots in mud on residential construction sites all over Western Canada.
I have been asked many times why I moved to Edmonton; I moved to spend less time driving between Calgary and Edmonton. I moved for opportunity; I stayed for the people. The community I have found here has been incredible. I would say here in Edmonton I found “my people”. To be entirely honest with you, I met an incredible woman; Deidre. Deidre had a lot to do with me setting roots down in Alberta’s Capital. At the time Deidre was working in a show home in a new subdivision on the southside of Edmonton; she is now a Rockstar real estate agent at Liv.
The conversation at our dinner table is real estate and renovations. When we go out with our friends, we talk real estate. When we wake up, we talk about our real estate dreams; it's freaking awesome!! When we are not talking “shop”, we are planning our next holiday or playing with our pooches. You might catch me in the gym or hanging with friends, at the hockey rink or recharging in the mountains but most of the time I am working in the residential home market! Why you ask, because, I love residential real estate!
Great group of people who are truly professional, very knowledgeable about real estate with very high service and ethical standards. Our clients are always well taken care of when we refer them to Liv.‐ Gord McCallum Read More
