I have listed a new property at 36 KLAMATH PL SW in Calgary.
This absolutely stunning Bungalow in Kingsland was completely renovated in 2016.

HOMEWARD Bound


Impactful Real Estate News



Go Give Big!

 

One of the Core Philosophies at our company is this: The size of the hole you give through is directly proportionate to the size of the hole you receive through. You could even say that ‘giving starts the receiving process’.  The point though is NOT to give to receive, just go give! After all this is the giving season! 


The current year coming to a close, celebration of Christmas and other Faith Driven Holiday Celebrations, all mean different things to different people, but most always represent joy, peace, gratitude and hopefulness. If you look around, you will notice a giving spirit exists unlike at other times of the year. Why can’t it be that way everyday of every year? It can.  It just takes effort. Here is what we are doing and how you can help.


Some home owners wanting to enjoy this Holiday season are less than enthusiastic because they feel trapped. They are desperate to exit their current home and give themselves a big Christmas Gift - a NEW place to call home.


As a result of working with hundreds of families over the last decade,  and through 2 documented recessions, we have developed a special market proof program to quickly get an acceptable "cash" offer on any home for market value. So, we are giving Home Owners wanting to make a move a very special gift this holiday season.


Your Home Sold Guaranteed, or We'll Buy It*.


There is some risk on my part to make such an incredible guarantee like that, but we are selling just about every home we list for the fair market value price, so there is no reason for area home owners, your friends and family, to fret about selling right now.

 


This is where you come in…

 

If you or anyone you know is considering making a move, we would like to offer them a FREE No Obligation to Sell Consultation to discuss just how they can make their move, get what they want and do it with the least hassle. 

 

Just like we are thankful for you and your business, I am confident your referrals will be thanking you for steering them in the right direction on getting their home sold!!!

 

And remember… Your Referrals Help Continue the Life Changing Work by JDRF!


We are on a quest to raise $6000.00 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation! 


For over 40 years, JDRF has been a global leader in the search for an end to type 1 diabetes (T1D), through both research funding and advocacy. During that time, they have always talked about a cure as a singular destination: a return to normal physiology.


But today, they realize that they are engaged in a process of curing T1D – that a cure is not just a destination but also a journey along a path. And they recognize that a part of their mission must be to help those living with T1D today to live healthier, easier, and safer lives until they arrive at the end of that path.

JDRF's Research Goals 

JDRF’s research is committed to improving the lives of every person with T1D and to curing this disease. JDRF's research goals are realized by the projects being supported in three basic areas: Cure, Treat, Prevent

  • Cure therapies (Restoring a person’s insulin-producing capability and halting or reversing the body’s misguided immune attack on the pancreas);
  • Treatment therapies (Developing new devices and therapies that transform the way people with T1D treat the disease today in order to help them live healthier lives now and in the future); and,
  • Preventive therapy research (Keeping future generations from getting T1D or stopping the disease process before it damages the pancreas).

These therapeutic areas are a bold step in their promise to move the diabetes research landscape towards a cure as soon as possible. It is based on the progress and success of research over the past four decades in uncovering the most promising pathways to a cure.

 

SO, YOUR REFERRALS REALLY DO HELP YOUR NEIGHBOURS WHO NEED HELP THE MOST!


Who do you know considering buying or selling a home you could refer to our real estate sales team?  Not only will they benefit from our award-winning real estate service, a very worthy cause will benefit as well.

Thank You!


November is one of my most favourite months of the year. The leaves being to fall, the weather cools, football is on, and the season of giving, thanks, and family that began with Thanksgiving in October is in full swing.


I call it the Thank You Month. An extra opportunity to say Thank You for being a valuable part of our historic business. As most begin to prepare for the Holiday season, plan get-togethers and the like, it’s easy to become wrapped up in all that we have to do to ensure a fun, joyful time for all we are responsible for and overlook all that we have to be thankful for. Gratitude though is an attitude that is contagious.


I’m encouraging my team to say thank you MORE than yesterday and count those blessings daily!

I have TWO things for you in this month's homeward bound:

Firstly... Many homeowners are anxious to exit their current home. Actually, loathing selling this time of year
as it adds to the frustration of not being settled for the Holiday’s. You may know someone or a family that fits this description.


Two Wonderful November Takeaways

1. Do You Know Someone That is Thinking About Selling, Yet is Concerned Because of the Time of the Year?

Firstly... Many homeowners are anxious to leave their current home. Actually, loathing selling this time of year as it adds to the frustration of not being settled for the Holidays. You may know someone or a family that fits this description.

Here’s where you and I can HELP:

As a result of working with THOUSANDS of families over the past 10 years, we have developed a special program to help Home Owners wanting to make a move and Sell Fast, For Top Dollar and with the Least Hassle!


For the month of November, we will guarantee, in writing, a cash offer at a price acceptable to the seller – all within 24 hours!*


You may have seen our ads around town about this:


Your Home Sold Guaranteed, or We'll Buy It!* Call Ken Rigel and Start Packing! (403)207-1748


Your Home Sold Guaranteed In 90 Days or We'll Buy It:


I know there is some risk on my part to make such an incredible guarantee, but we are
selling just about every client’s home at the market value price, sometimes even more,

so there is no reason for area homeowners, your friends or family, to fret about selling
right now.


Just pass on my number or give me a call.

2. AND Secondly... YOUR referrals help the Kids.

We are still boldly on a mission to raise $6,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation for 2018 and we are getting CLOSE!


How the Donation Works:


We donate a portion of our income from homes we sell to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. As you know, JDRF does AMAZING work in helping kids survive and thrive living with type 1 diabetes. They also lead the way in research and development of diabetes prevention and treatment as well as the work to find a cure. JDRF provides strategies for management and care, and is on the forefront of technological advances to improve quality of life.


We are proud to be an official sponsor of JDRF! So, YOUR REFERRALS REALLY DO HELP THE KIDS...


Who do you know considering buying or selling a home you could refer to my real estate sales team?


Not only will they benefit from our award-winning service, but you can rest assured a very worthy cause will benefit as well!


To refer your friends, neighbors, associates or family members considering making a move, just give me a call or pass on my number to them!


Over the last two decades of helping thousands of families sell their home and/or buy another, we have met some wonderful, loving, caring people. People like you! So for those you know that are considering a move, you have my word that we will do our very best in helping them buy or sell the place they call home.


I hope this special month of Showing Thanks brings you much joy and happiness.


With all my appreciation,


Ken Rigel


Your Home Sold Guaranteed!
