Realtors in St. Albert are invited to get the latest scoop on what’s happening in the city.
The city’s economic development team is organizing a bus tour for about 30 realtors from the city and north Edmonton on April 30.
The tour will take them to some of St. Albert’s new development areas, but also inform them about other key facts in the city, said economic development officer Dawn Fedorvich.
“We will talk about the St. Anne Street realignment and then some other key facts about St. Albert’s education system and the recreation facilities and the family amenities,” she said.
“All these extra selling points for the realtors so they can pass that information on to the many people that want to move to St. Albert.”
The tour is part of the team’s residential attraction plan. Realtors are trusted to provide new residents with the best and latest information and to answer lots of questions, said Fedorvich.
That’s why it’s important to keep them up-to-date with developments in the community and other relevant information. The more people want to move to the city the better it is for local business and development, she added.
“With economic development rooftops matter,” she said. “Developers want to see a steady growth rate in the population so we want to make sure that we are doing what we can to encourage that growth.”
As part of their plan, economic development has also started a new advertising campaign this week.
The city is now advertising online on Global Television, and created radio and print ads for Now! Radio and Avenue Edmonton Magazine, she said. Fedorvich said they have also updated their Move to St. Albert (movetostalbert.ca) website.
Realtors wanting to participate in the bus tour can register at RealtorsTourOfStAlbert.eventbrite.ca.
The tour will start at 9:30 a.m. at 29 Sir Winston Churchill Ave. and run for about two hours.
