Glen was a proven sales professional before entering the real estate industry, with more than 20 years of sales, marketing, negotiating and management experience. He has previously owned and operated two successful sales companies that marketed Software, Technology and High Tech Navigation Equipment internationally. His decision to enter the real estate industry was not taken lightly. Glen is a people person the biggest enjoyment he gets is seeing the smile on his clients face when he hands them the keys to their first home. This is much more satisfying than just selling technology. He loves the product; there is such diversity in housing.
EXPERIENCE: A licensed REALTOR within the province of Alberta since 1999, he is still licensed with Re/Max Realty Professionals, were he started his career. The CIR Real Estate brand is the biggest and best in the world and the cross marketing advantages it brings to his clients are enormous.

Glen’s expertise goes far beyond fancy sales and marketing he is a very mechanically inclined individual that has personally renovated and repaired every item or system that can be found in a home in Calgary. He truly understands housing to the bones. This mechanical knowledge is extremely valuable to his clients as he educates them while searching for the perfect home.
SPECIALIZATION: Instead of just specializing in one neighbourhood or Geographic area, as most Realtors do, Glen specialises in specific types of real estate. Glen concentrates on Inner-city homes (such as infill’s, older bungalows and the land they reside on), Investment properties (Positive cash flowing Duplexes, and Rental properties) and homes ideal for First Time Home Buyers. Glen enjoys creating a custom marketing plan for every home that he sells. This plan insures that the marketing is targeted to the most likely buyer demographic thus maximizing his sellers return on investment
REAL ESTATE AS INVESTMENT: Buying a home is the biggest investment most people ever make in their lives. It doesn’t matter whether you plan to live in the home or use strictly as an investment, purchasing in the wrong location can cost you well over $100,000 in lost appreciation. When you are educated, Real Estate is the best financial investment that a person can make PERIOD. Glen purchased his first piece of Real Estate in the 1980’s & continues to grow his personal portfolio, he understand the investment aspects of the Calgary marketplace. Glen will educate you on the financial and investment characteristics of real estate and will guide you to the properties with the highest rates of return on the best streets, in the best neighbourhoods, all within your personal criteria and budget.
