My Story

‘Living and Selling Edmonton’ is truly my passion.  As an Edmontonian born and raised, this city has given me—and my kids, a lot to be grateful for… and we love it dearly (Alberta weather and all!).  I couldn’t be more proud to assist other Edmontonians and relocating families discover the best that our city, and each distinctive neighbourhood, has to offer.


Street Cred

wendy hamel image circleAfter graduating high school in ’92 (let’s not do the math there) I responded to an ad for a receptionist at a small family brokerage. And I am so thankful that I did. From 1992 to 2008, I was immersed in fully learning the ‘real estate ropes’—everything from the day-to-day transactional needs, client accountability and services, to broker-level concepts ~ and believe you me, nobody knows the inner workings of a brokerage like the admins do!  

In 2008 I decided to make the move from admin to Licensed Real Estate Agent—a move supported by the amazing team at Pat Mooney Real Estate Ltd.. I remained there under the expert mentorship of Pat Mooney until 2016, when new opportunities took me in another direction…to RE/MAX ELITE.


Life … and other Stuff

Of course, no professional career is complete without a personal journey. I’ve been truly blessed with a fantastic (and thankfully supportive of my crazy ‘Realtor-hours’ career) husband—and 2 great kids, a 19-year-old daughter and 12-year-old son.

When we’re not checking out Edmonton arts, culture and other family events, we like to take adventurous trips to California, exploring the coast, beaches and visiting with extended family.  But sometimes, even a Real Estate Professional needs to disconnect from technology and the hustle and bustle of City life, and reconnect with nature.  Hauling the trailer up to the mountains for some remote random camping helps us to recharge!

The ‘Talk of the Block’

The fam and I love our South Edmonton ‘Summerside‘ neighbourhood, and we can often be found enjoying the lake activities and community events at Summerside’s Exclusive Beach Club.  Where residents can lay on the beach, swim in the lake, go fishing, play volleyball or tennis, or even take a boat out on the water.  If this neighbourhood concept is of interest to you, give me a shout – I would love to show you ‘What’s To Love About Summerside’, and make YOUR family our newest neighbour!

Our family has been incredibly blessed, and we try everyday to not take that for granted. It’s this gratitude that encouraged me to be a proud supporter of theChildren’s Miracle Network—to which I donate a percentage of every one of my commissions.

Takin’ Care of Business

With almost 25 years working in real estate, I’ve gained valuable experience that only decades can bring. The savvy real estate tricks I’ve learned have helped my own family & business succeed—and I would love the opportunity to put this experience to work for you!

My business is built on the relationships that only earned loyalty and trust can create.  I’m not your real estate pro today, I’m your real estate pro for life…  So don’t hesitate to contact me for a chat about a neighbourhood, future family/home goals, or anything else that might be of interest to you.
