The Rocky View Publishing team is proud to announce that we will be releasing the Airdrie House & Home magazine on April 27.
The magazine will highlight our city’s communities by featuring a new neighbourhood in each edition.
Special guest columnists will be regular features and in the Spring 2012 edition, residents will read articles written by Airdrie Mayor Peter Brown, design expert Grace McKee and longtime Realtor Gary Lock.
“This new publication is something that we thought Airdrie needed. It is a great magazine for an ever-growing city and highlights our communities and why people choose them,” said Rocky View Publishing Publisher Cameron Christianson.
“This magazine will help you know more about the area you live in or teach you about a new area that you may want to move to.”
The April 27 edition of the magazine will feature articles on Cooper’s Crossing - Airdrie’s premier community, making your backyard your oasis, how to develop your basement and which fence is right for your family.
For the Spring edition of the magazine, our reporters sat down with Allan Tennant, CEO of the Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB), to talk about Airdrie’s growth from a bedroom community to a blossoming city with its own identity.
“It was a very small town, so it’s been incredible to see Airdrie grow,” he said.
“There was a time when an estate home in Airdrie looked like a starter home, compared to some of the other communities. Now, Airdrie is a marketplace that really does have something for everybody in terms of residential real estate. It’s unusual to see a marketplace that has extremely high-end, custom-built mansions in Cooper’s Crossing, to lots of starter homes, a good inventory of condos and duplexes and trade-up homes. Airdrie has done a good job to create a broad product mix.”
Tennant will also add his expertise to an article about the dos and don’ts of buying your first home.
Airdrie House & Home will connect you with experts in a number of fields from mortgage brokers, to builders, to designers, to families who love their communities - just like you.
This colourful publication will educate and entertain everyone from those who are buying their first home to seniors looking to downsize.
“Airdrie House & Home will have informative articles on how to complete your house and make it your home,” said Christianson.
