Edmonton Real Estate Blog

Belgravia has always been one of the most exclusive communities in Edmonton to live. 

You won’t find cookie cutter homes in Belgravia, but rather a neighbourhood full of diverse and uniquely designed luxury homes sitting on top of some of the largest lots in Edmonton.

New developments have continued to breathe new life into the neighbourhood and even today there is redevelopment happening in both commercial and condominium spaces and as well in the renewal of residential properties and infills. 

“We’re seeing a lot of development in Belgravia,” says Jason Holland, with Holland and Associates. “There is some subdivision of lots happening with some really beautiful infill properties being built. A lot of the older bungalows are being renovated

Hi There! 

Kerri-lyn here - I wanted to take a moment to connect with all of our clients, friends and members of our community because I know that we are in new territory these days and sometimes where there’s change there can be a lot of uncertainty and it can be tough to forge ahead. 

In times when I’ve needed guidance and inspiration I’ve often reached out to my friend, life coach, mom and Olympic Champion Jamie Sale. Jamie has achieved so much, working her way from Red Deer all the way up to her gold medal win in figure skating and I felt like I could learn a lot from her. I think it’s so important for us to check in with ourselves and continue to learn new strategies to not only cope but thrive in our work, our home lives and even in

Tucked behind the Edmonton Country club along the edge of the North Saskatchewan river in Edmonton’s west end is the neighbourhood of Oleskiw. With a population of more than 2,800 residents the community is bordered by 170th street, just blocks away from access to whitemud drive. Driving into the community you’ll find beautiful homes surrounded by the picturesque river valley parks system with trails meandering down the banks of the Wolf Willow Ravine. Walking through the area you’re likely to catch the distant sound of a woodpecker tapping away at a poplar, a rustling of the leaves and the echo of a basketball hitting the pavement of a driveway during a quick father son pickup game.
