My passion for real estate began in 1984 when I bought my first house in Moose Jaw at just 21 years of age. I renovated it, sold it for a profit, bought another, and never looked back. I moved to Calgary in 1990 and started my career in the fall of 1997 with Century 21 Bamber Realty Ltd.
In a short period of time, I was able to achieve number one status for his office in 2001 and 2002, as well as receiving a number 59 Century 21 Realtor in Canada rating. Over the next 15 years,I have helped over 1,000 people realize their home ownership dreams, as well as having developed and built over a dozen properties in the Calgary area.

My 20 years of experience has helped me to understand my clients’ needs and wants, develop exceptional customer service, and build strong relationships with people throughout the industry. As a private pilot and avid athlete, I exercise focus and determination when dealing with his clients; making their needs his top priority, while maintaining strong attention to detail.

From the first time I played Monopoly as a 5-year-old, I knew there was something about Real Estate I was addicted to! I was fully immersed in the excitement, trades, negotiations and the idea of acquiring property!  In the 20+ years to follow, that passion, interest and excitement continued to grow, flourish and eventually transpired into my forever career that I am so passionate about.

After I purchased my first home (only to realize on the day I moved in there were no closets, which for a 20 year old female, was going to be a big problem!), I knew there had to be a better way to help people fall in love with Real Estate while properly guiding them.

An experience with positive outcomes and no unanticipated surprises.

I love helping people design and create the lifestyle they want, by finding them the place they come home to at night, their personal haven, a place to lay roots, start their families, let their relationships and careers flourish and somewhere that they can be proud of.

My career is much more than selling houses, it is the achievement of getting to help people design and create the life that they want. It is the most rewarding and exciting part of my career.

My personal philosophy in my career is offering luxury service for every home and every client at every price point, which is why I developed Exclusive Calgary Real Estate. A brand that reflects reputation with a focus on exceptional service, always putting the client first.

I live and breathe real estate! It’s my passion and my career.

When it comes time to buy your dream home or sell a house you have loved, call me! I want to hear your story and be part of your results.

I’ve been a Realtor serving Calgary for the past eleven years. Like many in our area, I’m actually a transplanted Calgarian. Originally from Ontario, I’ve lived in the Stampede City for close to 20 years now—and this is where I’ve put down my roots. My family, my friends and my career are all firmly planted in the West. 

I am passionate about real estate, always striving to find just the right home for my clients. Why was a career in real estate the right path for me? Simply put, I’ve always enjoyed helping people meet or exceed their needs, wants and goals. My philosophy toward real estate is influenced by lessons I learned during a previous career as a white water rafting, hiking and canoeing guide in the Yukon and Alaska. In that line of work, no two trips were ever the same. But my clients trusted me and benefited from my knowledge, leadership and guidance as I navigated them through unfamiliar territory where conditions could change at any moment. The same is true, in many ways, of real estate transactions. 

Let me be your guide in the dynamic and ever-changing world of real estate. I understand market conditions, price trends, community demographics, infrastructure and financing—and I’m able to coalesce all of this knowledge to fulfill my clients’ needs. My many repeat customers and their personal referrals are the foundation of my exceptionally loyal client base. 

Now my partner Mike Dreger, Kaitlyn Gottlieb and I have come together, along with a team of carefully selected Realtors, to form Exclusive Calgary Real Estate. The purpose of this group is to offer seamless professional expertise and assistance for every aspect of your home purchase or sale. The Associates at Exclusive Calgary Real Estate represent the very finest agents in the business and have formed a close-knit team with your best interests at heart.

Please call me anytime without obligation. My team and I are ready to work for you today! 

JOHNNA ATHRENS

My earliest years were spent helping my parents renovate and build custom homes to sell. It was truly a family endeavor, each of us pitching in however we could with anticipation cumulating for the final reveal.  It truly is no surprise I chose to become a Realtor; after all I was raised by one. This exposure provided me with a valuable inside look within the Real Estate industry, I fell in love with it. This deep-rooted passion for real estate is present when guiding each of my clients through the process of buying and selling real estate.

I decided to pursue my degree in commerce based on my interest in business and entrepreneurial adventures of owning small businesses. While completing my degree specialized in entrepreneurial management and finance I was establishing, transforming and growing small businesses for profit. I learned through formal education and first-hand exposure how to implement strategy and successfully negotiate. This education and experience provides my clients’ value and assurance when it comes to the largest investment of their lives.

Outside of real estate my passions are found in art and music. I have been creating through painting, making music and exploring numerous other creative disciplines my entire life. “We believe in the power of art to transform the places and the lives we live.” This line is what made me choose to volunteer with Contemporary Calgary.  An organization dedicated to making Calgary a global city of choice through building a destination dedicated to contemporary and modern art.

I joined Exclusive Calgary specifically for the opportunity to combine my passions for business development with my creative strengths in marketing and arts while continuing to develop my negotiation skills. My unique educational and entrepreneurial background gives me the ability to see far beyond the basic needs of clients when buying and selling real estate. I offer more than just buying and selling homes, alongside my clients; I assist in developing a strategically sound plan to ensure they realize their best financial future.
