Cara was born and raised in Calgary and Airdrie until at the age of 20 when she traveled north to BC to work in the oil and gas industry. She realized quickly that if she worked hard and provided superior customer service that she would do well. After only 4 years in the industry she decided to start her own company and by the sixth year it had grown to a fleet with over 20 employees. With her established company doing well she decided to start her family.  Cara has been married for 10 years and has 3 beautiful young children. She decided at this point it was time to move home to Calgary so that her children would know their grandparents. She wanted to focus on being a mother and knew she couldn’t give her company the attention it needed anymore so she sold it and a few years later found her passion.. real estate! Cara loves a tidy home and has a natural eye for interior design and can see the potential a property has. This is valuable to her clients as homes that show well sell well!  She loves to be challenged and is very driven.
