Donna Houston   


Donna has been a licensed REALTOR® for eight years, offering a vast amount of experience to her clients after dealing with hundreds of real estate transactions. From corporate relocations and executive listings, to first time buyers and new Canadians; commercial transactions, condos with assessments, hotel condos and foreclosures - there is rarely a transaction she hasn't dealt with. Analyzing the pulse of the market to be ahead of trends is just one of the ways she sets herself apart, bringing her extensive business experience to the table for both her buyers and sellers.

Born and raised in Calgary, Donna's experience working in large corporate settings, including work with a Fortune 500 company and national law firm, brings a certain professionalism that gives her an edge in Real Estate. Her tenacity for accuracy and top-notch service has awarded her accolades with clients and peers alike. Her commitment to stellar service translates in her transactions, always going the extra mile, asking the hard questions and willing to face any challenge presented to her. Her willingness to push for only the highest standards leaves her clients feeling well represented and cared for.

Bringing a background in Marketing and Business Development, Donna's creative work is showcased throughout the liveworkplaycanmore branding, website design and content. Each word personally drafted and tailored to the clientele the team wishes to attract. She is dedicated to bringing this same personal experience to each and every client, since no two clients are ever alike -  very much like art.

When not selling Real Estate or busy with Ryan and their two boys, Donna enjoys spending time outdoors, enjoying anything creative, and also dedicates a lot of time to the community through various associations and organizations in the Bow Valley, currently sitting as the Chair of Public Relations with the Rotary Club of Canmore and as a Director with the Bow Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Ryan Houston


Retired from the corporate world, Ryan brings a uniquely diverse range of experience, incredibly complimentary to the Real Estate industry. Through his management career, Ryan has developed very strong people skills, and has worked hard to improve his understanding of human behavior. Having serviced some of Canada’s largest companies, Ryan’s understanding of customer service is unparalleled. He brings to the table strengths in process and procedure and envisions a business where corporate structure, professionalism and high level service is provided to all.

Born and raised in Calgary, Ryan grew up playing high level hockey and coaches both his kids to this day. When he's not supporting his clients or the minor hockey association, you can find Ryan enjoying the Bow Valley, hiking, biking, golfing, skiing, or trying his luck at anything new. Committed to being immersed in the community, Ryan has also been highly involved with the 
Rotary Club of Canmore and is the new Chair of Fundraising for the 2019/2020 season, looking forward to servicing his community for years to come.
