We acknowledge that we live and operate on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional meeting grounds, gathering place, and travelling route to the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis, Dene and Nakota Sioux. We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.

In an effort to educate ourselves further on treaty agreements, we wanted to gain a better understanding of how our work, our industry and our community has been impacted by the current state of partnerships with local First Nations and what we can do as realtors, neighbours and allies to move the industry in a more open and progressive direction. We would like to thank all of the individuals who took time to share their stories and their…

From high street boutique shopping and world-class restaurants to mature neighbourhoods with 100-year old trees within 5 minutes of the downtown core, the luxury market in Edmonton is unique. Rooted along Canada’s largest urban park; the North Saskatchewan river valley - Edmonton is a city full of hidden gems, exciting new developments and an ever evolving professional sector attracting investors and buyers with diverse backgrounds.

Parkview is a community where everyone knows your name! 

Named for its close proximity to multiple parks, ravines and its breathtaking views of Edmonton’s vast river valley, the mature west-end residential neighbourhood is located about 10 minutes from downtown Edmonton. It is bound on the north by the MacKenzie Ravine, on the east by the North Saskatchewan River valley, on the west by 149th Street, and on the south by 87 Avenue and Buena Vista Road.

 

Developed in the mid-to-late 1950s, the majority of the original homes were single-detached bungalows. However, a few long-lost hundred year old farmhouses can still be found dotted in the neighbourhood. 

It’s that diversity in Parkview that resident Deanna Jackson loves most about her…
