Back in October, Cory Clendenning jetted off to Africa to hike up Mount Kilimanjaro with the hopes of raising $10,000 for The Mustard Seed. After sixteen days abroad, and five grueling days on the mountain, Cory is back at home after successfully reaching the summit and raising $8,000 towards his goal.

Cory had spent months preparing for the physical challenges of the climb, but it was the mental component that proved to be the much larger challenge. The weather on Mount Kilimanjaro is varied and unpredictable, and the drastic changes in climate combined with physical exhaustion took its toll on him after a few days.

“Being cold, wet, and tired plays a big factor on the mental side of things.”

Climbing a mountain is demanding in and of

For most people, spending five days in one of the harshest environments on earth would seem implausible. But Dale Temple is not like most people. 

On November 14, Dale will be travelling to Morocco alongside a team of adventurous Royal LePage realtors as they embark on a 100-kilometre trek across the Sahara desert. The trek is part of an initiative called the Sahara Desert Challenge for Shelter, which aims to raise $1 million for The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. Each trekker has to raise a minimum of $5,000 in order to participate, all of which goes directly to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention programs across Canada.

Cory Clendenning, one of our realtors at Royal LePage Noralta West, will soon be trekking up Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for The Mustard Seed, a non-profit that strives to alleviate poverty and homelessness by providing food, shelter, and care to vulnerable communities. His goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of his trip, and he has already raised nearly $4,000.

Cory will be funding the entirety of his trip out of his own pocket, so all of the money raised will be going towards helping The Mustard Seed in their day-to-day-operations: providing food to the homeless, distributing warm winter clothing to those in need, and transitioning vulnerable people into affordable housing.

Since the 1980s, the organization has been

Edmonton has been working hard to get out of the Real Estate Doldrums. The market struggled to pick up momentum through the tail end of 2018 and started slow in 2019. In May we saw glimpses of a closer to normal Real Estate Market and we are encouraged by the last three months. Our Agents have commented on how difficult it is to complete every sale. With strict lending policies, buyers looking for a great deal, and prices not meeting sellers expectations, you need a pro working for you.

Consider giving one of our well supported, experienced, and trusted Real Estate Agents a shot in selling your home or helping you find the perfect place a shot.

Here is a summary of July's Activity:

We’re going to talk about the neighbourhood of Blue Quill in south west Edmonton.

  • Prior to 1971 the area was active farmland, with 18 farmsteads being worked. Urban development began almost immediately after the annexation in ’71 and some of the farms were in use up until 1973.  Most of the housing was in place by 1980 although some building continued into the early 2000’s.

 

  • Today Blue Quill is a mix of single and semi-detached homes, condos and apartments.  An average list price of $269,000 is ideal for first home buyers.  Don’t let the lower list price fool you. The neighbourhood is very walkable and has good transit services.  A great Lifestyle score with solid Family, Safety and Recreation amenities make for an ideal family
