I have lived in Calgary for almost 20 years now and have been investing in real estate locally since 2004. I have purchased and sold in the downturn as well as the peak of the market. I have also sat on the condo board (as President) on most of my condo purchases, which makes me very well versed on condos and what to look for as a primary residence and/or investment.
In 2009, after seven years in sales and management at TELUS, I left the comfort of the corporate world and decided to start my own business in the real estate industry. My initial step was to become a mortgage broker. After having purchased two homes in Calgary, I decided to complete my real estate licenses while doing mortgages full time. Upon completing the licensing process, I transitioned into a fulltime career in real estate where I’ve consistently been ranked as the “Top Producer” in our Calgary brokerage (Century 21 Bamber Realty) and the top 5% nationally as Centurion (the Century 21 top producer award) year after year.
I understand the critical components of working on each side, representing both buyers and sellers. Knowing the market, being accountable to my clients, quick to answer the phone and being a tough negotiator on both sides of the deal are what you get with me as a realtor. I’m a firm believer in pricing properties properly and am fierce when it comes to negotiations for my clients. I make sure no money is left on the table.
Over the years, I have sourced an excellent team of professionals, which ensures every one of my clients has the best possible experience from beginning to end. For me, working with my clients is some of the most enjoyable times I have had, and I can honestly say that every client I work with becomes a lifelong friend along the process.
It is crucial to understand who you are working with and that you feel confident in communication lines that are honest and always in your best interest. My job as your realtor is to get you top dollar for your home and navigate through the process of terms and conditions to secure the absolute best output with the least amount of stress and maximum value. I embrace collaboration with my clients and am always available to discuss concerns or a shift in direction.
I look forward to working with you.
Eight Fun Facts About Erin
1. I was born in Yellowknife, but I’ve lived in Victoria, Regina, Cayman Islands and Calgary in my lifetime (Calgary being the longest).
2. I am a HUGE animal advocate. As a child, we had all sorts of pets from frogs, dogs, birds, cats and hamsters. As an adult, dogs are my life. We have two amazing Irish Water Spaniels Marlee & Sullivan, who keep us laughing.
3. I love connecting with people both in my personal life and in business.
4. I LOVE throwing parties. If there’s an opportunity where I can put clients, friends and colleagues in a room together, I’m game. Over the last few years, I have thrown many memorable parties both for charity and just for fun.
5. I do a vision board workshop every January with anyone who wants to join. I have done vision boards for almost ten years now, and it is impressive to see what you can accomplish when you put your goals on paper.
6. I’ve been known to be a source of the most random information, which comes in handy when showing homes. My background in computer science has allowed me to master the art of googling and fact-finding. I could have been a detective in another lifetime.
7. I LOVE Amazon Prime...I should probably own shares because I have sold more memberships to that company than I can count on both hands.
8. I have a ridiculous memory for song lyrics and movie quotes. The weirder the song or quote, the better it sticks!
