Big Picture Market Data, Statistics & Trends

We have access to and examine market data and statistics through two powerful databases of market activity. We analyze information and trends become evident when we step back and look at world events and relate these to our local, unique real property market.

Analysis Of Buyer And Seller Goals

We listen well, learn your objectives quickly and set the right priorities.

For Buyers, our real time Private Client Services search engine identifies your property preferences and provides us with a unique ability to meet your needs.  

For Sellers, positive and on-going dialogue about your objectives helps us develop a plan to meet your goals within your timeline.

Aware Of Timing Considerations

Timing is everything and for us it is an important piece of the transaction adventure. Whether you are challenged or comfortable with Buying and/or Selling, we pay attention to the pace you set for the length of the journey and guide you along the whole way.

Care And Attention To Detail

Sellers deserve the best quality representation of their property and we deliver. As an example, High Dynamic Range Photography is our standard. We tap into leading edge ways of doing certain things, but maintain a down home approach by listening to you and responding to your unique needs.

Thinking And Acting Ahead

We take a what-if approach to managing problems, just like a climber studying a wall considers the “problems’ to be solved. We always look ahead and want your experience to be a rewarding one, like summiting on a clear, safe peak.

Secure Digital Lockboxes

We utilize modern technologies to improve the efficiencies, providing secure access to properties. We follow up on viewing outcomes, provide short notice access to Buyers, and increase viewing frequencies when when convenient to Sellers.


We make your life simpler by moving through necessary paperwork quickly and efficiently via electronic signatures. More than convenient, it is also fast and allows you to compete when timelines are tight during negotiations and people are afar.

Transaction Flow Professionally Managed Start To Finish

Let our experienced Team members streamline the work flow and process with you. We coordinate with all parties involved to keep everyone on-task.

Timely Communication

Whether you phone, text or email us, you will reach a single contact point for our team and we're back at ya' in no time. All thanks to a state of the art integrated communication platform.

Jim Ridley

Jim Ridley, Realtor®

Along with business experience founding Positive People Placement, my assets include 28 years living and playing in the Bow Valley. This knowledge as well as an in-depth understanding of Land Use Zoning in Canmore through my seven years on Town Council provides Buyers with an expertise seldom found in Realtors. I can help figure out "what your property can do for you".

What Our Clients Say

Thank you so much for all your advice along the way. We can 't believe that things turned around so fast. I thought I was fine with plan B. But, now that I know that we have a home in Canmore, I can feel the joy of knowing I will get to explore it as if it were my place to live for a long time. The children are sending me messages about what not to bring, which I am mostly ignoring. I need the aids to memory provided by my knickknacks and pictures. I look forward to the first day I walk down to the town for a coffee in a cafe, sign out a library book, pick up a brochure on a concert, get a smile from some local walking along the street and then head home to sit in front of the fire with the book and feeling the peace of looking out at "my mountains". Hope to see you sometime at the end of August or start of September.


Thank you so much for all your help and assistance with purchasing a home we had once only dreamed of having. Your professionalism was greatly appreciated.

Patty and Dion ~ Edmonton

We found Jim to be highly interested and motivated in the marketing and sale of our home. He has exceptional communication skills that work in the best interest of both the seller and buyer. Real estate marketing is Jim's real calling.

Chris & Barb Bryant ~ Canmore

Working with Jordy and Jim is a real pleasure, as they genuinely care about finding the right homes for their clients. Their professional demeanor, communication, and thoughtfulness are much appreciated. Many members of our family have worked with Jim and Jordy multiple times, and being returning clients is a testament to the quality of their work

Stefan & Sabrina ~ Canmore

Jordy and Jim, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and Jordy very much for all your hard work and great advise during this very quick and painless process.  I really appreciate how quickly the place sold and that we were able to have minimal invasiveness for the tenants.  Thanks again to you both for selling my house and in such a timely and effective manner.

Andrew S.

Thanks for all your hard work in getting a sale. Hope the new (soon to be!) owners enjoy it as much as we did.

Louise K. ~ England

We started off with a simple desire to spend more of our life in the Rockies. We had never before purchased a vacation property and it took us several months and many weekend viewings arranged short notice by Jim and Jordy in order to make a final choice. It became readily apparent to us that this team had a diverse business background and a strong sense of community engagement. As a result, they were able to effectively help us decide what type of home and location in Canmore would suit our interests as well as the needs of our family. They were very approachable by phone, email and in person. Our long-distance search was easier because of their willingness to help with all aspects of the purchasing process. Their team was an integral part of finding our perfect mountain home.

Mark and Joan ~ Lloydminster

I found both Jordy and Jim very easy to work with. They showed great support and were very professional throughout.

Helen S ~ Canmore
