Joel Gwillim

Joel is continually a top Agent at CIR Realty and is known as 'the' Condo Specialist here in Calgary. His sense of unique style, modern flair and upbeat personality is renowned throughout the office. He has been called the jack of all trades, as notorious for such online advertisements and publications like Avenue Magazine quoting, “Buying, Selling, Staging + Design…Yup, he does it all!” His eye for fashionable design and love of creatively marketing properties has proved beneficial to sellers as he can help showcase your property to its full potential with staging assistance, colour palette choices and reworking spaces. 

His favourite thing about the job is meeting new people. “Turning an initial great conversation into a client or even a friend is amazing; it really fuels my work ethic.” He respects and is appreciative for the trust people place in him to take care of such a big life decision. But he’s worked hard to get there, always making it a purpose to stay educated and knowledgeable about every facet of Real Estate. There is nothing more rewarding to him then helping someone find a great place to call home and/or showcasing + marketing a client's property for sale. He undoubtedly takes great pride in how he represents those that hire him.

His specialty is inner city living in Calgary as he loves the energy of the core and its neighbourhoods. He likes to keep his marketing innovative + cutting edge. Joel thinks that is really imperative in the current marketplace as a lot of potential buyers are very savvy when it comes to searching for their first or next property. Smart websites, creative showcasing, targeting the community, hosting events + online promotion are his keys to generating a buzz around any new listing.

He also admires the flexibility of being in Real Estate, which allows him to focus on other enjoyable aspects of life. He’s held a charity golf tournament for 12+ years that benefits the Parkinson’s Society of Canada. He’s also had volunteer opportunities with the Calgary Drop-In Centre, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Calgary Senior Resource Centre and the Special Olympics. Being a big animal advocate, his favourite local charities/non-profits to give back are AARCS, Robin’s Refuge and the Alice Sanctuary. If he's not working away at the office, you can usually find him out with his friends somewhere in the Beltline, supporting the Calgary Flames, traveling to his vacation home in Phoenix or golfing up the summer months in and around the city. If you see him around, don’t be afraid to stir up a conversation about Real Estate, you may learn a thing or two!

Joel welcomes all new customers and is forever grateful for referrals. Check out some past client testimonials and feel free to contact him directly. 

Buyers' Representation

As your Buyer's Representative, we can make the process of house hunting much easier and more efficient than if you did it all yourself. We can help you get financing, guide you to local neighbourhoods, help you determine your budget, and prioritize a list of essential features that you need in your next home. We'll save you valuable time by finding the properties that best suit your requirements, and will show you only the most promising ones.

Once you've found a place that catches your eye, we'll look at comparable properties in the area to help determine a purchase offer. Then we'll negotiate on your behalf with the seller to make sure you get the most favourable terms.

It's our job to look after your best interests, and we will do so at no cost to you as a buyer.

Sellers' Representation

Selling a house on your own can be an overwhelming task. There's advertising to plan and budget for, open houses and private showings to arrange, purchase offers to negotiate, contract contingencies to worry about, and complicated paperwork to fill out. Make it easy on yourself by putting your home in the hands of seasoned professionals. We have extensive experience marketing properties and showing them to their best advantage.

First, we'll perform a comparable market analysis to determine the most appropriate price for your home. Then we'll provide home staging advice and suggest landscaping changes that will help draw buyers in. We'll advertise your home through a variety of methods, including local publications and online MLS® listings. We may even showcase your home as part of our site's Featured Listings.

When it comes to negotiating a purchase offer, we'll make sure that you get the best price the market will allow. We'll help you understand contract contingencies and details of the closing process, in addition to handling all the paperwork for you. Essentially, we're here to represent you throughout the entire selling process, and to make sure that your real estate transaction is a positive and profitable experience.
