Donna Houston                                                                                   


Donna has been a licensed REALTOR® for nearly seven years, working closely under the mentorship of a top producing and award-winning REALTOR® within Royal LePage. Ranked as a Top Ten Alberta Team in 2013 with Julio Florez, Donna's time on a top producing team has brought well over four hundred transactions across her desk. From corporate relocations to foreclosures, first time home buyers, executive listings, new Canadians, and condos with assessments, there is rarely a type of transaction that she hasn't seen.

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, hiking, biking & skiing, practicing yoga and enjoying anything creative, from scrapbooking to art classes. Donna also dedicates a lot of time to the community through various associations and organizations in the Bow Valley and is the incoming Chair of PR with the Rotary Club of Canmore for the 2019/2020 season.
