Jensens expand realty presence

A father-and-son real estate team have expanded their presence in Central Alberta. Norm and Chad Jensen, who own Royal LePage Network Realty in Red Deer and Stettler, recently purchased the Royal LePage brokerage in Innisfail. And they’ve followed up by acquiring Century 21 Global Real Estate in Sylvan Lake, with that deal to close today.

A father-and-son real estate team have expanded their presence in Central Alberta.

Norm and Chad Jensen, who own Royal LePage Network Realty in Red Deer and Stettler, recently purchased the Royal LePage brokerage in Innisfail. And they’ve followed up by acquiring Century 21 Global Real Estate in Sylvan Lake, with that deal to close today.

The Jensens opened an office in Sylvan Lake about six years ago, and last year moved that operation to bigger premises. Adding the seven Realtors from Century 21 Global to the 13 they already have in Sylvan Lake allows them to make better use of the office there and increase their presence in town, said Norm.

He added that their firm has done very well in Sylvan Lake since it opened there. The Century 21 brokerage was owned by Theresa Strasser.

The Royal LePage brokerage in Innisfail had been operated by Glenn and Allan Nimmo. Obtaining it about a month ago gave the Jensens eight Realtors in that town, and two more joined from another firm soon after.

Expanding its presence in Central Alberta will enable Royal LePage Network Realty to better serve clients who are moving from one community in the region to another, said Norm.

Royal LePage Network Realty now has 93 Realtors at its four locations.

Norm said the local market remains strong, despite concerns about the impact of low oil prices on the economy.

“We’ve had a really good March.”
