We are so grateful to have been nominated for the Canadian Real Estate Association’s Canadian Realtors Care Award.

A great big thank you to all our amazing clients who help support local worthy causes like Make-A-Wish by supporting our team with your business, referrals and encouragement. You allow us to do what we love to do every day and we are  extremely grateful.

Welcome to the month of April. By the time you are reading this, you will be deep into it. That means I can’t play any April Fool jokes on you. Never been a fan of those anyway. When I was a kid, my favourite radio station announced they were going to be changing formats and playing elevator music and for half the day they did that, only to announce it was a big April Fool’s Joke. 

Another BIG deal in April is TAX day! Yep! Deadlines for filing those personal income tax returns. I don’t think most people mind paying taxes as long as they are being put to good use. I think it’s the waste that bothers most us citizens. 

Both days I mention above are for sure conversation starters, one full of funny stories, the other maybe not so much, but there are few days more memorable than the day you buy your dream home. That day is supposed to be fun, exciting and great feeling of accomplishment. 

That is why we offer guarantees and assurances to our clients. We call this Our Risk Removal System. Like our Guaranteed Sale Program: Your Home Sold Guaranteed or We’ll Buy It*. And our VIP Buyer Satisfaction Guarantee: If You Are Not Happy With Your Home, We Will Buy It Back!*  In fact, our Exclusive Seller Agreements offer 6 Unprecedented Satisfaction Guarantees. In my experience, these guarantees elevate our service and our clients experience. 

And by now, four paragraphs into this month’s Homeward Bound, you are wondering how the headline ties into any of this. If you are receiving Homeward Bound for the first time, you will notice we give back to Make-A-Wish of Northern Alberta.

Your Referrals Help Make-A-Wish Continue to Grant Sick Children’s Wishes

The reason for the headline is because 30 seconds is about all it takes to think about who you know that may be considering buying or selling the place they call home and to give us a call. If it is you, then awesome! If it’s a friend or family member, that’s great too! 

Make-A-Wish is a non-profit organization that depends on the volunteers, sponsorships, and donations to create life changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.  That is why we donate a portion of our income on every home sale.

Like our Buyer Satisfaction Guarantee:  Love it or Leave it Guaranteed, or our Seller Guarantee: Your Home Sold GUARANTEED  or We'll Buy It*.  And we Guarantee that a portion of our income WILL go to a veryworthy cause like MAKE-A-WISH!

Eleven-year-old Lucien was just like any other child, enjoying sports and even earned the nickname “Speedy.” He was looking forward to learning how to “skate ski,” particularly because his older brother was the teacher of the class. During his first lesson Lucien kept falling and his brother knew something was not right. 

Lucien was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition, that starts with vision loss and involves loss of balance and coordination. It has been a gradual process realizing what this means for Lucien’s future and has brought his family closer. Lucien’s incredible resilience and strength gives everyone an appreciation of living each day with more purpose. 

When Lucien found out he was going to be granted a wish, he was so excited and zeroed in on a puppy, knowing that this would bring him so much happiness! He named his puppy Noona, and they have been best friends since the day they met! Noona is more than just a best friend for Lucien, but a symbol of independence, helping him to walk on his own and providing him with sense of security.

“Noona has brought joy to Lucien at a time when he had so many challenges in his life. It’s peace of mind knowing that Lucien will also be accompanied by his dog wherever he goes.” – Lucien’s Mom


Dwight sold our house in 11 days. Amazing! We had a fantastic experience with Dwight and his team. Dwight and his whole team are super professional, highly knowledgeable and always there for any question one may have. Dwight was always on top of everything and kept us in the loop all the time. We are very happy we chose Dwight! If you need to sell your home, Choose Dwight! ~ Ned Bogdanovic

10/10 Thank you, Dwight, Haley & Team, for your professionalism and patience to find my perfect home! This is not my first experience with Dwight and his amazing team. Whether buying or selling, the knowledge and experience you bring to the table at every stage of the process is priceless to me. Also knowing that you are committed to helping our local community through the Make-A-Wish Northern Alberta with the sale of every home is the icing on the cake!! Thank you. ~Cory Wilson

Dwight sold our home in Feb 2021. He was a pleasure to deal with and would 100% go with him again next time we move or list. He managed expectations well (mid-pandemic and everything shut down the week we listed) and provided solid advice on pricing. He brought in professional photographers so photos turned out great, but my favourite thing was his set up for showings. We received an email every time the property was scheduled to be shown and also feedback from people/realtors that went through. This really helped us with monitoring interest, pricing, and anything that we needed to consider. We’ve used many realtors over the years and Dwight delivers better value than any other we’ve worked with.  ~Kim Snidar




It's easy to refer those you know considering a selling and/or buying a home!

Have you noticed how often people ask for recommendations? In fact, it happens all the time in the local “home” industry. You might have a neighbour, for example, who is thinking of moving this year and asks if you know a good real estate agent. When a situation like that comes up, I hope you’ll feel confident recommending me. You can rest assured that not only will they get the award-winning service we are known for and the guarantee to back it up, but also that a solid portion of the income we receive will go toward a very worthy cause!

Refer your friends, neighbours, associates or family members considering making a move! You can go to HelpUsHelpKids.ca and enter their contact info online or send them the link to this page.  Not only will they benefit from our award winning service, but we donate a portion of our income on every home sale to the Make-A-Wish Foundation!

Of course, you can always email: dwight@dwightstreu.com or call me direct at 780-462-5002.
