Celebrating Christmas With Justin Havre & Associates
It's been an amazing year working along with so many of the residents of Calgary. There have definitely been ups and downs during the year, but through strong support the communities banded together to help one another through thick and thin. We were proud and honoured to help people with their relocation plans and look forward to the new year ahead.
From all of us in the Calgary office, we would like to take a moment to wish you and your family the very best of the season.
It’s that time of year when we reflect on the past year, with all its ups and downs, the highlights and the low-lights. We take this opportunity to express our gratitude to our clients who put their faith in us this past year; as well as to all who have navigated these unexpected economic conditions with us and made the best of what was given.
Our goal as a team is to always connect families, couples and individuals with their personal real estate goals. Whether this means finding a dream home, a step-up townhouse or an affordable condo for a first time buyer, we always commit 100% to helping dreams come true. We couldn't do all of this without the help and support of our clients and associates. To you, we raise our glasses of eggnog and say thank you.
