Christine Richard - CRRS, CCS, ABR, ASP, SRS, B.A., GLOBAL LUXURY Specialist, Accredited Staging Professional
I arrived in Calgary in 1979 and fell in love wiith this city. As a travelling photographer, I had worked in many cities and towns across Canada. I was impressed with the incredible mountain views and the friendly atmosphere. Calgary has been an awesome place to call home.
I got into real estate because of the questionable practices I experienced while looking for our own home. I encountered very poor service from one realtor and being deliberately misled by another realtor on a prospective purchase. I decided to take the Real Estate Course so I could receive proper training and represent myself. Once I obtained my licence, I found our home. We are still in this home by the way. Shortly after, I began to receive referrals from friends and colleagues. The referrals kept snowballing. So I gave up my job in customer service to become a full time realtor. It was a wise decison and I have never looked back. I truly love my work.

A little about me. Once a year, we take a meaningful cruise. My husband and I love to see new countries and learn about different cultures. We have visited some amazing places. I treasure these memories. While on these trips, I do stop in and meet the local realtors to learn about their marketplaces. I also make great contacts in different countries, should a client be relocating.
I also love to meet fellow travellers who share this passion.
