Buying, selling, and leasing property takes time, knowledge, extensive contracts, legal documents, and a considerable amount of money.
This is why licensed professionals can help. Real estate agents, mortgage brokers, property managers, and real estate appraisers have the knowledge, experience, and accountability to help and protect consumers through their transaction.
The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) licenses and regulates these professionals in Alberta. Anyone offering the services of these professions must hold a licence with RECA.
