It's easy to be a friend

Calgary REALTORS® demonstrate the capacity to give

Whether Christian Twomey is hopping on a motorcycle for a four-day ride or building a home in El Salvador, chances are he's doing it for charity.

In his 17 years in real estate, the RE/MAX Landan agent has become known for his charitable endeavors. Now he's being recognized with his firm's Hall of Fame Award, after having received a Lifetime Achievement award two years ago and more recently, RE/MAX of Western Canada's Community Care Award.

Mission possible

Affordable housing advocates bullish on possible changes

By the end of this year, at least 200 middle-income Calgarians will have bought what may have seemed financially impossible in the city's now waning hot economy: their own home.

Another two dozen families will, in 2015, aided by many hours of sweat equity instead of a down payment, have entered home ownership.

Yet these Calgarians, who became homebuyers this year through Attainable Homes Calgary Corporation (AHCC) and Habitat for Humanity, might not be the only ones stepping into a more affordable housing market in the near future.

By December, significant changes are expected to the City of Calgary's administrative policies to make growth in the overall housing market both more efficient and less costly.
