Looking for a Home in Calgary Walking Distance to Schools?

I just posted a note to my social media networks that went like this:

Looking for a home in Calgary in time to register the kids for school?

I can help you find Your Home in Calgary http://www.yourhomeincalgary.com/

 

To which one of my clients replied:  And areas that kids don't need to be bussed!

 

So, So, True!!   Calgary has been growing so much over the past 15 years, that the schools are having a hard time keeping up with the demand from all the new communities.  I find that when working with my buyer clients, they are often challenged with the decision of whether to move into a new home in a new community with all of the key features they want, or to move to an established neighbourhood with schools that will allow them to live the life they want.

dad and son walkingDo you want your kids to ride for a half hour on the bus (an hour in winter driving conditions) each day, or wouldn't it be nice if they could ride their bike, or even walk to school? 

The every day advantages to this can not be understated.  It translates into an actual change in lifestyle. When your children attend a school in another neighbourhood, all of their friends live in other neighbourhoods as well.  Which meands getting together with friends involves highly planned, tightly scheduled play dates that require Mom, Dad, Grandparents or caregivers to drive to another community just so the kids can play.

When kids walk to school, for the most part, so do their friends.  So after school, when they want to get together... it's as simple as asking for permission to go, and riding over to Joey's house.

Some of the communities in South West and South East Calgary that already have established schools include:

Chaparral

Cranston

McKenzie Lake

Midnapore

Somerset

Sundance

Homes!

Many parents request for homes where their kids can walk to school.  I also wanted to introduce myself, I live and work in Ontario.  If you know of anybody moving to the GTA please provide my reference, as I will do the same.  Thank you.
