So. . . what does Calgary’s real estate market and the National Hockey League have in common? Well, me actually. Although you probably never knew it, for 14 years I was Harvey the Hound, mascot for the Calgary Flames. That was my tongue Oilers coach Craig MacTavish pulled out in a fit of rage! As Harvey, I was part of the team that made sure the Flames were a highly-visible and integral part of Southern Alberta. I helped spread the love throughout Calgary and its surrounding communities. I have attended, as the Hound, almost every school, every local rink, and surprised many fans in their homes in every corner of this city. I learned quickly how to adjust to evolving situations, get to where the action was, anticipate developments and, most importantly, how to make connections between people.
Growing up in Calgary, going to school, becoming a mascot, building, developing, renovating and selling homes, I’ve seen this city change and evolve over the years. No matter where I was at or what I was doing, I have always had a deep appreciation for home. I know what it means to be able to come back to a place that’s comfortable, secure and really reflects my family’s priorities. Homes mean so much – whether it’s a refuge and retreat, or even a Saddledome. The fit is the thing.
