Local knowledge, national reach: this powerful combo brings real estate success

With over $23 million in Central Alberta properties sold in 2023 alone, Alison Low and Darlene Mounkes are a powerhouse real estate duo with Alberta’s largest independent brokerage, CIR Realty.

“One of the most frequent real estate misconceptions for those looking to buy or sell property in the Rimbey area is that they need to hire a non-local real estate agent to reach a wider market,” Darlene says.

“The reality is, Alison and I work with buyers and sellers from all over Canada, and have a vast network of contacts and resources readily available to our clients.”

In fact, working with two talented real estate agents that live, work and play in your local community can offer some major perks.

“I grew up right here in the Rimbey area and Darlene has lived in our wonderful community for the past 22 years,” Alison says.

“Being local allows us to better understand fluctuations in our micro-market, like what type of properties are available, average days on the market and what local properties are selling for,” she notes.

”We’re also familiar with the various neighbourhoods, schools and communities. We can provide accurate recommendations for local professionals and services that can benefit both buyers and sellers, but most importantly we provide a stress-free experience. Keeping a closer eye on your home, offering more flexibility in showings and a personalized experience that can be hard to find with non-local agents.”

A diverse range of expertise

From single-family homes, to farms, land developments, condominiums and more, there aren’t many situations that this dynamic duo hasn’t handled at one point or another in their collective 12 years of experience.

“Personally, I’ve worked directly with major builders in the past, which has taught me the ins and outs of the industry in a unique way. My husband still works in development and construction, which offers me further insight on what buyers and sellers need to know,” Darlene says.

“Alison not only works in real estate but also runs several small businesses around Central Alberta with her husband. They’ve given her the unique opportunity to explore a lot of Alberta’s countryside, which has helped her tremendously when working with people moving to our beautiful, diverse province to find just the right home in the perfect community for them.”
