Prime Edmonton Real Estate - YES! This week we talk about our Edmonton's favorite sports teams - the Edmonton Oilers and the Edmonton Eskimos. Both teams have seen a fairly dramatic downturn in ticket sales, and both have tried to address it - in very different ways. This summer has seen it quite evident at Eskimo home games - with the great Bryan Hall even saying that he is quite concerned with the downturn in attendance in our great city. Jerad chats about the different ways the Oil and the Esks have tried to lure the fans back to the games - and which one he thinks will work better! Which one do you prefer?

Prime Edmonton Real Estate - YES! The festival season rolls on, and there have been some absolute smashing successes! This year the Taste of Edmonton turned 35 - and for the 2nd year in a row was located at Capital Centre near the Legislative Grounds. We talk about why this location works, why they need to make it the permanent location of TOE, and I list off some of my personal favorite foods there.   The layout for the 2nd year of the event in this location was much different than in 2018 - and I think they nailed it! We went during a busy time (most times are busy times when you average about 35000 people a day through the area) and were super impressed with how easy it was to get around, the variety of foods and drinks, how lineups and ticketing…

Prime Edmonton Real Estate - YES! This episode talks about a recent proposal from your favorite sports owner and mine, Darryl Katz, to construct Phase II of Ice District to the North of Rogers Place. As you are well aware of, Mr. Katz is the current owner of the Edmonton Oilers, as well as Katz Group Real Estate, who has spearheaded both Stantec Tower and Legends Residence/JW Marriott buildings, as well as some of the surrounding areas. His plans are, as always, ambitious - 12 Towers, ranging in size between 10 to 40 storeys would bring in an estimated 4000 new units into the area.

I speak about some of the issues involved with this proposal, as well as share some early feedback that I received on social media. To say the least, the response thus far

Prime Edmonton Real Estate - This episode talks about serial entrepreneur, scientific genius(madman?), and technological wizard Elon Musk - and the thing that is happening in Beaumont may make him love the little city on the rise.

Beaumont, for those of you who don't know, is a small city of 19000 just outside Edmonton city limits South on 50 Street. It has recently trialed a project that has seen its main drag (50 Street) partially converted into an ELA lane. Now ELA stands for 'Electric Automous' vehicle, which can hold up to 12 people and is driverless. Passengers can be picked up and dropped off anywhere on the route, and you can also book it to pick you up at a  certain time.

Of course, Elon Musk is the founder of Tesla, amongst other things,

Edmonton Hidden Gem RestaurantsPrime Edmonton Real Estate - YES! I am very excited to share my latest podcast with you. I know that Edmonton has been spoken of very highly over the last 10 years ago or so for an excellent place for Foodies. There are such a HUGE variety of restaurants to try - in fact, I remember hearing a statistic a few years saying that Edmonton has the highest restaurants to population ratio in North America! Now, I don't know if that still holds true, but I can tell you that I have gone out to many places to eat over the years.

Now I love upscale dining as much as the next person, but I wanted to take a step back from those on my latest Prime Edmonton Podcast and instead focus on the hidden gems - the places that you would drive by and never notice on first
