Surrounded by beauty and glowing in character, the elegant community of Glenora is one of Edmonton’s most desirable areas to live in. The historic west side neighbourhood flourishes with appeal! Known for its lush trees and gardens, mix of architectural styles and abundant modern amenities, here you will find exceptional homes, a fabulous urban lifestyle and solid real estate investments.
“The Glenora community offers a wide variety of housing, whether it’s modern, traditional or historical,” explains Jason Holland of Holland and Associates with RE/MAX River City. “People like the proximity of the location, being close to downtown, the River Valley and the west end; there are good schools, shops and parks in the neighbourhood and all that is very attractive to prospective buyers.”
In today’s real estate market, young families and established professionals looking for their dream home continue to be drawn to Glenora where the demand for unique quality homes remains high.
“We’ve seen the most stable pricing going on in the mature neighbourhoods like Glenora where it’s consistently been going up. Slow market, bad market, buyers market, it doesn’t matter; there’s just too much demand in these particular areas which in turn makes for a good investment. You’re not going to buy something here and find out it’s worth $80,000 less nine months down the road.”
This beautiful home on 10335 139 Street listed through Jason and Kerri-Lyn Holland of Holland & Associates is a great example of newer construction on a full sized lot. The house is just under 3,000 sq. ft., with a gorgeous kitchen, master bedroom and a walk-in ensuite, plus a triple sized garage and landscaped yard.

“My kids love it because all we have to do is go for a three minute walk and we’re at a park, or hop on our bikes and we’re on a bike path. I love going for walks with my dog in the summer or winter and you never know what neighbor you’ll meet up with.”
“I’m happy that I’ve found my ‘Happy Place’,” he adds. “You’re centrally located in Glenora; it’s a mature neighbourhood - one of the first ever established in Edmonton. People are nice and they look out for each other. I just feel very lucky, very blessed to be able to live in this neighbourhood.”
