When it comes to updating their living space, some homeowners enjoy doing the research and then planning, designing, and decorating on their own. Many believe they will save a substantial amount of money.


While that may be true, they may also be doing themselves a disservice by overlooking the benefits of hiring an interior designer (who can create and maximize functional living space) and/or an interior decorator (who can furnish and adorn a home or room for aesthetic appeal). While homeowners may seek inspiration from magazines and websites, designers and decorators know how to adapt those concepts to the available space. They can also ensure that their suggestions and recommendations are practical and attainable and take advantage of the latest products and systems available. In addition, they can offer the added benefit of applying rebates and discounts from manufacturers, importers, and trade showrooms – which the average consumer simply can’t get. Those discounts may even help offset the cost of the professional fees. But perhaps the greatest benefit of hiring professionals is the peace of mind that comes from knowing they can save you a great deal of time, especially if you have too many ideas or none at all.

Let's be honest most people hate the thought of dealing with a Realtor.

Over the 20 years, Jerry Charlton has been helping people buy and sell homes in Calgary. I've had the privilege of dealing with some outstanding realtors. And sometimes the opportunity of dealing with some terrible ones as well.

My Clients Best Interests Always Come FirstIt's way too easy to get a real estate license. Most Realtors learn on the job and sometimes at the expense of their clients. Most Realtors have very little or no experience in customer service or business before getting a Calgary Real Estate License.

My clients have benefited more than once when the other side was poorly represented. I've had realtors tell me way more than they should or that their clients would approve of. Do I take advantage of that for my clients? Absolutely. I work for my client's best interest always.


If we know a seller has already bought another house and has to move by a certain date we adjust our strategy accordingly. If we know a buyer has limited choices we work with that as well.

We make it our job to get as much information as possible when the negotiations start.

We get our clients the lowest price possible when buying and the highest prices possible when selling.

Because it is all about our client's best interests always!!
