Edmonton Real Estate

Hiring the right lawyer for your real estate transaction is of paramount importance. Whether you’re investing in a large business asset or purchasing your first home, Ogilvie knows the Edmonton and broader Alberta market intimately. Advocating strongly for its clients, Ogilvie ensures the details of conveyancing are finalized with precision.

“When we refer a client to Ogilvie, we have full confidence the client will be treated with the utmost professionalism in a down-to-earth manner.

There has been much focus on the negativity of COVID’s impact, but there is resilience in embracing uncertainty. Now is the time to negotiate and be creative; to take a step forward by investing in the future. This could mean signing a long term commercial lease, or purchasing a bricks and mortar business. Ogilvie is tuned in to economic ups and downs and prides itself on a relationship focused practice. Together, we work with you to meet your goals.

2020 has been a year like no other. An appetite for e-commerce was clearly developing before COVID, but now it’s an essential component of a healthy society. Retailers are purchasing warehouses close to major centres like Edmonton, mitigating the disruption in supply chain flow.[1] The shift in retail patterns has resulted in widespread vacancies in traditionally prime locations. Downtown towers are looking for tenants to consume the oversupply of inventory.[2] Opportunities abound.

Residentially, the consumer is empowered like never before. You can view complete listings virtually. Interest rates are low. Now more than ever, homes must serve multiple purposes and often. There has also been a surge in home renovation projects. Homes now need to be an ideal space to serve all of our work, personal and family needs.

Investing in a house or business property is one of life’s biggest decisions. Having the right lawyer or legal team is essential. With 100 years experience in real estate law, Ogilvie knows the industry and how to get the best result for its clients. #togetherinpurpose
