Why We Love YYC

Happy Valentine’s Week, Calgary!

All of us here at Team Ken Richter would like to offer you our sincere thanks and love. You are the reason we have loved serving the City of Calgary all of these years. Calgary has so many wonderful things to offer its residents and visitors that they could never all fit into one list; but we're going to try. 

Here are 10 reasons we love YYC: 

1). The Location: In real estate we always emphasize location, location, location! So location must be the top reason we love Calgary. Calgary is perfectly nestled between the prairies and the mountains. On a clear day, the views are bare-none.

2). The Amenities! Hiking, skiing, walking, climbing, shopping, eating, drinking; Calgary has it all!

3). The Entrepreneurial Spirit: In Calgary we love to support local businesses, because we recognize they are part of what makes our city great. Calgary has some incredible local shops; check them out if you are looking for Valentine's Day gifts!

4). Our Teams: In a wonderful turn of events, the Calgary Flames are at the top of the league this year and are looking good as playoff season approaches. We love supporting our local sport teams and are excited to cheer on these ambassadors for our great city. Go Flames Go!

5). The Parks: Nose Hill, Bowness, Edworthy, Prince's Island; Calgary has done such a great job maintaining and protecting green spaces and parks. While it has been a little chilly these last few weeks, we are looking forward to warmer days ahead!

6). The Community Spirit: We say this a lot, but it's only because of how much we appreciate the community spirit Calgarian's have. During the 2013 flood, we were blown away by the support Calgarian's showed. It made us so proud!

7). The Food: Calgary is a foodie's paradise. Between unique brew houses like Leopold's Tavern and upscale fine dining such as Noteable, incredible chefs continue to call Calgary home. We love trying the new restaurants popping up all around the city!

8). The Art: Calgary has taken so much time to thoughtfully bring our streets to life via beautiful art installations  and decorative architectural designs. Have you visited the new Library yet? You can take a tour to learn more about art in Calgary and how the buildings are contributing to it.

9). The Weather: Yes, it is crazy cold right now. There is nothing fun about a polar vortex. However, being in the climate we are, Calgary also gets crisp fall days, hot summer nights and rainy springs. We love experiencing every season and all of the weather it includes! 

10). Last but most definently not least... YOU! Like we said before, we are so thankful for you, our valued clients. If you're ready to fall in love with Calgary for the first time or fall in love with a new home, contact us today at 403.630.6363.
