About us

     Our journey as a team began in 1986, a story woven with love, family, and shared adventures. In 1990, we took the plunge into marriage, and from there, our family grew with the addition of two wonderful boys, Bas and Jules. In 2007, we embraced a new chapter, relocating from The Netherlands to the enchanting town of Okotoks in Canada, creating a home that is not just a place but a canvas for our dreams.

Living in Okotoks, surrounded by the beauty of Calgary and the Rockies, has become a source of joy for Richard and me. Professionally, I have been honored as an award-winning REALTOR® in Okotoks and the surrounding areas, realizing my clients' dreams since 2009. Richard has been a constant support, lending his expertise in construction, project management, and IT, making our partnership in real estate a formidable one.

In 2023, we officially solidified our collaboration as a real estate team. With specialized focuses within the business, we can channel our energy into our respective specialties, providing our clients with a tailored and dedicated approach.

Whether you're considering buying or selling or simply have questions about the Alberta Real Estate market, we would be delighted to work with you. Our commitment is rooted in honesty, dedication, hard work, and staying abreast of the latest market trends. Rest assured, we value your time and won't pressure you; real estate decisions require careful consideration, and we'll be patient until you're ready to take the next step.

Our extensive network of professionals, including home inspectors, lawyers, photographers, virtual tour designers, measurement technicians, mortgage brokers, home stagers, and cleaners, ensures a smooth and well-supported process.

Fluent in both English and Dutch, we embrace our multicultural client base, providing the advantage of two passionate business minds working seamlessly together. Your real estate journey is our priority, and we look forward to the opportunity to assist you in achieving your goals.

Warm regards,

Jacky and Richard
