With American Thanksgiving over, the Christmas holidays are officially in full swing!

This year Christmas is going to be different as families are modifying their plans in the wake of new COVID-19 restrictions. Even though some of our traditions may no longer be feasible, like large family dinners or sitting on Santa's lap, one tradition that stands the test of 2020 is decorating for the holidays. As we settle in for a new round of quarantine here in Alberta following a state of public health emergency being declared, it's becoming more appealing than ever to decorate our homes. If there is one thing we all need right now, it is holiday cheer and coziness.

There are consistent holiday decorating staples, such as a Christmas tree and stockings over…

Calgary has a thriving small business sector that we always like to encourage people to check out. It is important to support small local businesses and the Calgarian's that pour their hearts into them, especially this year as many Calgary businesses have faced loses due to COVID-19. As they say, when you shop from a big box store, a CEO doesn't blink twice. When you shop from a small business, the owner does a little happy dance. Support a fellow Calgarian this Christmas by buying your holiday gifts from one of these local shops:

Tomorrow, November 11, is Remembrance Day. 

The Canadian Encyclopedia writes, "Remembrance Day is a yearly memorial day that is observed in many Commonwealth countries, including Canada, to remember those who died in military service, and honor those who served in wartime. It is observed across Canada each year on 11 November — the anniversary of the Armistice agreement of 1918 that ended the First World War. On Remembrance Day, public ceremonies and church services often include the playing of “Last Post,” a reading of the fourth stanza of the poem “For the Fallen,” and two minutes of silence at 11 a.m. Wreaths are laid at local war memorials and assemblies are held in schools.

There are a handful of events happening this month that we are excited to share with you!

First, it's important to take note of November 11th happening next Wednesday. This Remembrance Day is a stat holiday for most Calgarians as per usual, but is going to look different this year. Due to COVID cases rising across the city and new restrictions set in place by Alberta Health Services, ceremonies in memorial to our veterans are going to look different. Military sites such as museums and the Memorial Drive feild of crosses will be open to visitors, but large scale ceremonies are being held as virtual events. If you do plan to visit a site in Calgary, we recommend booking a timed ticket in advance wherever possible. You can see a full list of events…

The year of 2020 has been unprecedented, to say the least. This has had incredible impact on the Calgary, Alberta real estate market. Back in April we saw a near standstill in the market as the entire world shut down. Many feared this would have long-lasting impacts on our already struggling economy and real estate market. Despite the naysayers, the Calgary real estate market has outperformed expectations and risen from the ashes. There is still a long way to go, but trends are looking positive and worth holding hope in.

Each month the Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB®) releases a summary at the top of the month of what happened in the market the previous month. Here are some of the highlights from their latest report on October 2020, which you can…
