This is an immediate development opportunity!

These two lots are land value only, already approved for a high-end and luxurious 19 suite apartment building.

Why rent or pay condo fees when you could own?

This property has only ever had one owner for the past 30 years, a great testament to the stability of this unique setting in Bowness. This property is very well cared for and maintained. It is a 1255 square foot, two bedroom, two story home on a manicured fenced and treed lot! Please note: the home originally had three bedrooms and could be easily converted back to three bedrooms.

Can you believe that summer is almost over? In two weeks classes will be starting and schedules will go back to normal. While here at Team Ken Richter we are determined to soak in every stray ray of summer available, we’re gearing up to help prepare you for the fall. After all, it will be here before you know it.

One thing that happens at the end of summer is students move back into the city. As students begin pouring back into Calgary to begin a new semester, the rental market spikes. Not only must renters find a new property, but in many cases people need to find new roommates. While there are some single occupancy properties in Calgary, the majority of suites for rent are designed for two or more individuals. Picking a roommate is a crucial…

Summertime is one of the most anticipated seasons in Calgary for two reasons: 1). It is a welcome respite from the snow and often unpredictable weather, and 2). It is the shortest season we experience. Lasting only two months between rainy springs and crispy falls, summers in Calgary are short but sweet. This is why Calgarian's are always determined to make the most out of their summers. 

We always recommend starting summer with a list of all the fun things you want to do. Popular items on this list are:

  • Check out the Bowden Sunflower Maze 
  • Try every new scoop at Made by Marcus, Village Ice Cream and Fiasco Gelato
  • Spend a day at the Calgary Zoo and see the Pandas
  • Eat Cotton Candy and enjoy the rides at Calaway Park
  • Learn about…
