Broker returns to the Valley

Tracy Carson signs on at Royal LePage Rockies West

Columbia Valley real estate has a new broker in town. Royal LePage Rockies West Realty is pleased to welcome Tracy Carson back to its stunning location in Fairmont Hot Springs. Ms. Carson brings with her a wealth of experience to buying or selling a home.

“You need an experienced professional to guide you through the process. When you work with me, you can count on personal, attentive, patient service, excellent knowledge of the area, great negotiation skills and expert selling strategies,” she said.

Ms. Carson started her career in 2006 as an unlicensed assistant to Kim Collens while she prepared to get her real estate license, which she obtained in 2007. She stayed on with Ms. Collens before heading to Calgary in 2012.

The real estate climate in Calgary was cutthroat, according to Ms. Carson, and the Valley beckoned once again with the encouragement of Wayne and Kim Collens.

“You really get lost in a sea of realtors. So coming back to the Valley, I still get to do what I want to do but it’s a smaller footprint and you get that opportunity to get to know people,” she said.

Going above and beyond for her clients is the mandate Ms. Carson lives by and she will adapt to their needs to guarantee the highest level of service.

“If there’s a client that isn’t here for the weekend and I really need information on certain areas or products I will gather that information for them and do all that background work, so that when they come here they just have to concentrate on being here and what I’ve set up for them.”

Ms. Carson enjoys taking a personal approach to her work and helping her clients achieve their goals. Royal LePage has been a great fit for the broker while providing her with ample opportunity and she loves the patriotic flavour of the Canadian company.

“There is so much training and they don’t charge you for it; there are webinars, there are all sorts of things online and lots of marketing tools that are free for us.”

Commitment and motivation are keys to success in the industry according to Ms. Carson who works on a commission base. But, the market is strong and she’s willing to go that extra mile for her clients. For more information or to book an appointment with her, visit
