If you were born sometime between the late eighties to the year 2000, you are a millennial. While many people bemoan millennial's as out of touch and entitled, statistics prove otherwise.

According to these statistics, millennials are the generation most passionate about justice. They are at the forefront of charity and non-profit work. Millennials also are not as lazy as people make them out to be: the average millennial works 3 jobs at a time to support themselves. And while millennials do spend a significant amount of time staring at their smart phones, they are also developing incredible technological advances that will benefit society as a whole.

One thing many millennials are struggling with right now is the housing market. There is so

Calgary was established in 1875, garnering its name from the Isle of Gull in Scotland. Fun fact: loosely translated from the original Norse language, Calgary means 'cold garden.' For years people have flocked to our great city; this beautiful, cold garden; in search of something more. Calgary has always been viewed as a welcoming place for those seeking more opportunities for themselves and their families. Here at Team Ken Richter, we are proud to be Calgarians.

One of the biggest draws to this city has been the energy sector. Many jobs in the oil and gas industry are based in Calgary. If you ask any Calgarian, chances are someone in their immediate family works in the energy sector. Because of this great opportunity to find work in a booming

It's still a little chilly outside, which means that most of us would rather be curled up inside with a warm drink instead of out in the cold. While temperatures are expected to rise soon, you can never be too weary when it comes to weather in Calgary, Alberta. Our friendly groundhog Phil may have promised winter was at it's end, but that does not mean our toes will be thawing anytime soon. For now, we're going to keep our sweaters on.

During cold winters a fun pastime is scrolling through Pinterest, dreaming of all the fun projects you can do once it is warm enough outside. This is especially true when it comes to home renovations, which most people tend to complete during the summer months before a big freeze. After all, most home renovations

There is no doubt about it: Calgary is currently in a buyer's market.

What is a buyer's market? A Buyer's Market is when there are more units on the market than what are being sold; inventory is high, sales are low. This drives down prices on homes as seller's scramble to do whatever it takes for their home to stand out and sell, since during buyers markets homes end up sitting on the market for much longer than usual. Buyers simply have more options, which is great if you are planning to buy.

It may seem obvious, then, that as a buyer this is a fantastic time to enter the market. The reason why this has not been as simple as it seems is because of the new stress test put in place by the Bank of Canada to ensure all prospective buyers desiring a

Scientists around the world may not agree on everything, but the one thing they are sure of is that we need to make significant changes if we want this planet to sustain human life in the future. For years now we have been warned of climate change, a nasty side effect of human's ecological footprint on this earth. While some people say we are already doomed, the reality is that we have the power to help this planet thrive so long as we are willing to act now.

Owning a home has a big ecological footprint. The space your home sits on is no longer a natural habitat, the structure itself is built of cut down trees and products that will not biodegrade, oil and gas are needed to keep the space warm during the cold winter months, water is used to wash
