Here is Neil and Laurie Perry’s Story:
“We know Fred, and we’ve worked with him for years. The fact that he has real estate and farming experience was important.”
When the Perry’s decided to sell some land, they turned to their accountant, more recently also a Realtor with MaxWell Canyon Creek, Fred Mertz. Being so close to fast-growing Calgary, the Perry’s land naturally drew the attention of developers. They were glad to have Mertz’s expertise in regards to Alberta land for sale.
Fred Mertz also helped to prepare for the next generation of the Perry family to start farming in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta and Melville, Saskatchewan. If they’d been on their own, the Perry’s might have accepted an early offer, but Fred Mertz counselled patience. Finally, an offer arrived that suited their long-term tax planning strategy and their patience was rewarded.
