Hi, My name is Mike Chadha. I am a residence of Edmonton for  over 25 years and have been involved in all aspects of Real estate for the past 15 years. I arrived in Edmonton in 1988 when the Edmonton was a much smaller but still very vibrant community. Over the years I have seen many changes in our community that have made a positive impact in all of our lives.

1998 I graduated with a diploma in Computer Systems Technology from Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, Edmonton.

 

After graduation, I joined the Federal Government of Canada as a software developer and served for 8 years. I received many awards including the 2003 Federal Council Award and Albert Blair Award for conception and development of Labour Market Information application.

 

I have also served as an Instructor in the Computer Systems Technology division at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, Edmonton for over 2 years.

 

Since 2003 I have been serving our community as a full time real estate agent. Since then I have also been involved in construction of new homes, remodeling older homes, investment properties, commercial investments and leasing.

During my last 15 years I was awarded several accolades including the "Top Realtor" in the office of 78 other real estate agents and 2016 Re/Max Hall of Fame Award.

 

My vast experience in technology, government programs, new home construction, remodeling older homes and investment properties allows me to help my clients purchase or sell properties for the best price possible. I also use the computer extensively to find the best deals for my client and aggressively market the property utilizing many online/offline marketing tools.

Whether you are purchasing, selling or wish to investigate the possibilities, I care about your needs and will take the time to provide personal attention and 100% client satisfaction.

I promise to provide the most professional, ethical and informed real estate services in the Industry. My most important assets are honesty and integrity, whereby my clients become my friends.

Call me at 780-907-2737 and I will be happy to answer any question you may have!
