Walden Wows Buyers

With so many new communities in South Calgary, it can be hard to decide which one to choose for your family. Developing communities offer newer houses but often lack amenities. And of course, new usually means you have to deal with the dirt of dust of construction. Until now.

Welcome to Walden.

The Genstar community of Walden is located in the city’s southeast and is the perfect blend of modern meets nature. The family-centric neighborhood has been building since 2007 and is nearing completion — meaning your family can enjoy the perks of a newer community without any of the inconveniences. While you can still select a builder and buy a lot, pick a floorplan, and wait nine months to build a house, there is also a select inventory of fabulous existing properties.

Buying an existing home can be a great choice for the young family. These homes are often only a few years old but come with fully landscaped yards — perfect for enjoying backyard barbecues and relaxing after a long day at work.

Walden also features five finished playgrounds and a stretch of walking and biking pathways leading right into Fish Creek Park. This community was designed with its natural legacy in mind, and it shows. Picturesque preserved trees line the walkways and ponds. Unique, modern architecture balances beautifully with natural surroundings.

This community boasts a small-town feel — something to be valued in our ever-growing city. It’s peaceful and friendly but also offers the convenience of walk-able amenities. The neighborhood features a Save-On Foods, Starbucks, Tim Hortons, Shoppers Drug Mart, dentist, doctor, spa, children’s play place, and even a local pub with a fantastic rooftop patio.

These amenities are only the beginning. Walden is one of few communities with easy access to Stoney Trail, Deerfoot and Macleod Trail. Its central location makes Walden an easy choice for commuters.

Relax in your stunning, modern home while your children play safely in your own backyard. Watch the neighborhood kids bike to the local store, stroll the pathways to Fish Creek, teach your child to climb the monkey bars while the wind plays through the trees. It’s all waiting for you in Walden.

FOR BUYERS : Vacation Home

Everyone loves a good vacation. Do you find yourself visiting the same destination often? That might be an indicator that you are ready for a vacation or second home. It’s not for everyone, but I can help you make that decision. As an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®), I will walk you through the pros and cons of making this decision.

FOR BUYERS : Homebuying for the Win!

Here is what Sports Illustrated had to say!

It’s a New Dawn, It’s a New Day, It’s a New Home??

If you are one of the excited few thinking about taking the leap into the house of your dreams this year, congratulations! Choosing and customizing your home should be among the most thrilling, fulfilling experiences out there. And, just in case you were wondering when this was going to start being about me, well here it is: when buying a new home, it’s a pretty excellent idea to have professional REALTOR® representation. Oh wait, I’m a REALTOR®! What a coincidence!

Let’s talk about show suites for a minute. If you’ve got your eyes on a new build, and feel like browsing around a show suite… HOLD IT! Did you know, that if you don’t have REALTOR® representation the first time you set foot on that site, you may not be allowed to include me as part of the process after that? Basically, if I don’t “introduce” you to the builder, you may lose the right to future REALTOR® representation completely. Yikes is right.

Now, if you’re working with a builder sales rep on a new construction, don’t get me wrong; they will give you quality information regarding development specifications, financing options, upgrades and sales. However, while REALTORS® are contractually obligated to represent the buyer (you), on site sales reps are hired by, and contractually obligated to represent the seller (not you). Think of it as showing up to court without a lawyer, and then asking your opponent’s lawyer for legal advice.…Ok, maybe it’s not that serious. But you know what I mean!

So, as shiny, manicured and tempting as they are, remember to give me a shout before succumbing to the enticing lure of the show home! Plus, then we can grab milkshakes afterwards and chat about it.
