You may currently have or will have in the near future, a student going to University of Calgary. If so, there are a lot of options for them. There are a number of residences and, of course, some other rental opportunities. If residence isn't your preference and a rental isn't realistic, then there are some affordable options for purchasing a condo apartment.

West of CF Market Mall is an area that has some older buildings that are nice. Some may not allow occupants below 21 years-old; others do. The newer towers at University City near the Brentwood LRT station are an option, but most find those just a little too far, the units quite utilitarian and have much smaller rooms.

There are two buildings which are directly across 32nd Avenue NW from the University of Calgary. These two buildings, "3111 Varsity" and "Little Varsity" are separate condominium corporations although they may not look like it.

I have sold a number of units in each building in representing buyers and sellers from...

Yesterday, I was reviewing a new Calgary MLS System listing of a condo apartment property and it reminded me of something that should be of importance to buyers and sellers.

As it is, a basic real estate license is all that is needed to market, sell, and assist buyers with condominium purchases. However, it really is a specialty with some significant nuances.

It is expected that someone licensed in residential sales who is looking at completing in sales of condomiums (or acreages) will get additional training – but it isn't specifically mandated.

Last night, we completed another sale (acting for the buyers in this case). So now that makes 7 sales in this little complex known as "3111 Varsity" in the last few years. And, we've done two others in the "sister building" next door: "Little Varsity."


This is all thanks to my clients for their support and referrals to other great clients.


I'm always working towards being someone you would recommend to your family, friends, neighbours and business associates. It is this type of response that provides me with true joy in beling able to help people with their real estate needs.


If I can be of assistance to you, or someone you know, please get in contact with me.
