Canoe at Auburn Bay: Buyer Profile

Meet Jessica!  We asked her to answer some questions for us so we could get to know her better.  Here is what she had to say about herself, Canoe and why she chose Avi Urban!

Proud new owner of the:

1 Bedroom, first floor.


I have lived in Calgary for about ten years now, and this is my first home purchase.  I love camping, and being outdoors, enjoying time with family and friends.  Plus I have been bitten by the travel bug, so we will see where my plans will take me. I work full time, and take night courses, so I have a pretty busy lifestyle these days.

Favorite thing about Auburn Bay or the SE?

Wow, that’s hard to narrow down.  I am very excited about being in a busy and vibrant neighborhood.  Grocery, restaurants, shopping and more will be a short walk from my door.  Plus there is the lake and future LRT stop, and the hospital right around the corner.  So I guess my favorite thing really is Auburn Bay as a whole package.

Why you chose to call Canoe your home?

I chose Canoe for a few reasons.  First, I was impressed with the presentation center and how helpful and friendly everyone was.  Second, I wanted a condo so I could count on a maintenance free situation which would allow me to stay focused on a full time job, school and of course fun!  And Third, I wanted a place where I thought I would see a good return on my investment, and Auburn Bay seemed to be the answer to that.  When I heard about the Urban Village being built right outside the door, Auburn Bay is a lake community, plus with a future LRT station just a stone’s throw away, I felt confident it was a good investment.

How did you hear about us?

I was interested in the area and actually discovered the condo by driving by.  But was then recommended by my Aunt who bought an Avi Urban townhouse that it would be a good idea to stop by the presentation center.  Am I ever glad I did.

Your favorite thing about your new home?

I think my favorite thing about my new home is just that…my new home.  I love the color options that were available, and am very happy with the upgrade options that were available to me.  It was nice to make it my own.

Favorite sinful food?

Hmmm, well I suppose some good schnitzel or home made perogies would be at the top of my list.  But I am also a sucker for some good Pho!

What is the coolest thing about you?

Haha, how nerdy I am… “Space, the final frontier, these are the voyages of the starship Enterprise…”

Nicknames as a kid?


Weirdest thing you have ever eaten?

Umm, well lets go with Dulse or Blood Pudding

Most embarrassing moment?

I think I blocked it out.

Most triumphant moment?

Buying my first home 🙂

If you could have a super power what would it be?

It would be cool to be able to fly.

What do you think about the name Canoe?  Love it or hate it?  And Why?

Well it is a little strange for a condo project, but I like the name Canoe, it reminds me of being in nature.

Thank you Jess for taking the time to answer a few, fun questions for us.  Welcome to the Canoe family!
