Sotheby's International Realty Canada Expands to Meet Growing Demand in Calgary 
Real Estate Market 
Internationally established realty brand increases presence in
Calgary due to rapidly growing real estate market 
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 --  Sotheby's
International Realty Canada announced today the expansion of its
Calgary operations and services, forecasting continued strength in
the city's conventional and luxury real estate market segments. Plans
include the doubling of the company's office space at a new location
at 815 - 17th Avenue SW in the summer of 2014, as well as the
addition of exclusive new service arrangements with private aviation
services company Albatros Aircraft Corporation operating out of
Million Air. 
Spearheaded by Mark Evernden, Senior Vice President of Sales with
Sotheby's International Realty Canada in Calgary, the ability to
offer private jet and helicopter services to targeted clientele comes
at a pivotal time as Calgary's economy draws an increasing number of
local, national and global elite travelling in and out of the city
for business and leisure. 
"Calgary has undergone a massive transformation in recent years.
Top-tier real estate in the city and surrounding areas is in high
demand not just from local homebuyers, but from those travelling and
moving here from other parts of the country and around the world,"
says Ross McCredie, President and CEO of Sotheby's International
Realty Canada. "Our growth here reflects confidence in Calgary's
appeal locally and internationally." 
In the past year, Calgary has experienced continued year-over-year
sales growth, particularly in the high-end. The recent $37.88 million
listing of Kettle Lakes Ranch by Evernden, among the most expensive
residential listing ever in the Calgary area, is one example of the
market hitting unprecedented milestones. 
"With the changes that are taking place in the market, home sellers
now need marketing solutions that showcase their properties within
Calgary, across Canada and around the world," explains Mary-Ann
Mears, Managing Broker for Sotheby's International Realty Canada in
Calgary. "Expanding our operations helps us offer our local and
global marketing platform to meet that demand - not only from luxury
clientele, but clients with homes at every price point."
