Since becoming an Agent she has risen to the top 5% of Realtors® making her one of the best Realtors® in Grande Prairie (based on 2022 sales stats in Grande Prairie and the County of Grande Prairie).

Malcolm Gladwell penned the idea that a person needs 10,000 hours to become an expert in a field. Working full-time in real estate for over 12 years, Helen has done over double that, making her a true Real Estate expert.

She has negotiated commercial deals, represented homebuilders, represented clients in the homebuilding process, found rural properties for her clients, and helped hundreds of people buy and sell homes.

Helen has lived in Grande Prairie for over 30 years. She spent 15+ years in the homebuilding industry and the last 12+ in real estate. She is familiar with all areas of Grande Prairie, including the established neighbourhoods like Patterson, County Club Estates, and Highland Park along with newer areas like Whispering Ridge, Kensington, Carriage Lane, Taylor Estates and so on.
What makes you different from other agents?
What makes Helen different from a lot of Grande Prairie Realtors® is her sheer time in the industry. She has been in it for over a decade and plans to continue for as long as possible! She didn't join the industry for the money rather because she felt she had a level of experience from her time in the homebuilding industry that would allow her to really help people. With a personal 'family comes first' motto when Helen says she treats her clients like family it is a statement of the value and respect she has for them and their finances. When you choose to work with Helen you not only have a Realtor working harder for you, but you join the Harder family.
