While it can be easy to get overwhelmed with the pre-winter blahs when the days get shorter and the weather becomes less pleasant, it is good to keep in mind that the better you prepare your garden now, the easier it will be to enjoy that space in the spring. Particularly when you live in an area, like Alberta, that has a long winter, the springtime awakening of plants in your yard can help work as a great pick-me-up.

We recently had the opportunity to relocate to Edmonton from Halifax. We only had a limited amount of time to find a place to live and not knowing the city or the real estate market, we asked for a referral from a colleague who also recently relocated here. They recommend Patti Proctor from Maxwell Devonshire Realty.

Patti quickly arranged a meeting at our convenience to discuss our home preferences, life style expectations, whether to rent or buy, and home wish list. That evening we received an email with a detailed list of homes for us to review. She cleared her schedule and dedicated the next few days to chauffeuring us around the city, while educating us on the nuances of each prospective neighborhood we explored. We viewed quite a few homes in the short period of time and Patti made us feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire experience. We purchased a home and it closed on the night before we had to return home. Patti and her team guided us, via long distance, through the purchase process for Alberta quickly and efficiently, helped to arrange a home inspection, and made themselves available to questions and requests from our legal and financial agents.

Patti possesses a vast wealth of knowledge relating to local residential architectural history, home construction, city bylaws and community culture; to name a few. She and her team were always welcoming and helpful. We would be pleased to recommend her and her team to anyone considering buying or selling a home in the area.
