Inner-City Living Experience - Calgary Winter Fun

Inner-City Living Experience - Calgary Winter Fun

‘Tis the season to be jolly and although many Calgarians would argue that the best place to spend these wintery months is on the slopes, we disagree! Despite the cold weather and gloomy skies, Calgary’s inner city seems to come alive with a certain seasonal magic you just can’t find outside of downtown. From Christmas shopping along Stephen Avenue and skating at Olympic Plaza to evening eggnogs at the Ship And Anchor, there is no place like the inner city for the holidays.

If you are looking to buy or sell in the dynamic, diverse inner city of Calgary, The Eklund Group is an expert inner-city real estate team. Contact our Realtors® for skilled and knowledgeable insight into Calgary’s unique living opportunities in the heart of the city. (403) 863-7434.

Buying And Selling In Calgary’s Inner City

Don’t miss a moment of winter fun when you choose to call Calgary’s vibrant and dynamic inner city home. The team of Realtors® at the Tanya Eklund Group are Calgary’s Inner-City Real Estate experts. We specialize in the inner city because we have helped many buyers and sellers close successfully in and around downtown Calgary. But we also specialize in the inner city because we, too, live here, work here, and play here. An inner-city specialist is your best resource if you are seeking a home or looking to sell your property in Calgary’s core. 

If you are interested in exploring opportunities for an exciting and dynamic lifestyle in the heart of Calgary, or if you are looking to sell your inner city home quickly and for the most optimal price, our team has the resources you need. Reach out to us at 403-863-7434 or online and let’s talk about what home means to you.


Absolutely! Selling and buying at the same time can be tricky to navigate. Some buyers need to complete the sale of their current property before they can even begin to look at new homes. But there are also strategies to bridge the time between selling and buying so you are not left scrambling to find a new place or without a roof over your head after you sell. We can help you figure out the best way to time your sale and purchase so it is as easy and seamless as possible.

We know the inner city well. In fact, we ourselves work, live, and raise our families here. We can help you understand the amenities, features, and benefits of the inner-city communities from Altadore to Winston Heights and show you properties in the perfect neighbourhood for you!

A Realtor® who specializes in the inner city will have the experience and knowledge to navigate some of the unique challenges that can arise when buying or selling in the city’s core neighbourhoods. Zoning, valuations, housing type, offer conditions, marketing, and more can be different for inner-city properties than for those in more suburban neighbourhoods.
