‘When we started our property search in Fernie, we were referred to Deb from friends. We are from Calgary which made our viewing availability very limited, but she was always willing to help coordinate a time that worked for us even if it meant taking up part of her weekend. She was also very patient while we narrowed in on exactly what we were looking for. We truly believe she was the key to our offer being accepted and grateful to her for helping us find our home away from home in Fernie!’
‘We are very pleased to have had Deb as our realtor. We have both bought and sold with Deb. With the changing economic climate our sale was more complicated, but Deb was able to walk us through it and reassure us along the way and manage the overlapping timelines for both.
Deb is extremely organized which with our busy schedules we needed, detail oriented and went the extra mile. We felt very confident in her knowledge, representation, and skill translation. Deb is personable and always follows through on what she says. I would not hesitate to recommend Deb to family and friends.’
Laura and Tim
“Thank you Deb for selling my house so quickly. You really made the process of selling seem easy and low stress. Your knowledge of the market is excellent and the professional photos and staging that you had done for my house really made a all the difference. “
LAURA WECKMAN, FERNIE
It has been a real pleasure dealing with you. Thanks for your timeliness, professionalism and always keeping us in the loop’
PAUL AND ARLENE DEVER, ALBERTA
‘Our family have been regular visitors to Fernie for almost 15 years. We met Deb Trand many years ago and were always impressed with her knowledge of Fernie, including the Fernie real estate market, her enthusiasm and excellent overall customer service. With Deb joining Century 21, we were able to engage Deb recently to help us sell our condo on the ski hill at Fernie (we recently upgraded to a bigger unit). Although Deb presented us with a comprehensive marketing plan to sell our unit, we had confidence in her based more on her reputation and integrity, and the fact that we had known her for so many years. In a relatively short time frame, we received offers for our unit with a resulting sale. We would not hesitate to recommend Deb to anyone looking for real estate in and around the Fernie area.”
BLAINE MYTRUK, C.A., ALBERTA
“We would absolutely recommend Deb to any friends or family. She was always available to answer questions, going above and beyond to make our land purchase possible. Her calm demeanor smoothed out any road bumps along the way. Deb is a true professional in her trade!”
BOB AND LUCY, FERNIE
‘We enlisted Deb Trand to market our condo in Fernie. Deb provided upfront information and met with us to discuss our situation and listing requirements. She promptly listed the property with professional photos and a 360 virtual property tour. Deb’s knowledge of the Fernie real estate market enabled her to recommend a competitive listing price and aggressive marketing strategy which generated an offer within 2 days. Deb provided strong guidance throughout the negotiation and ultimate closing process. We would highly recommend Deb Trand, she is a skilled and effective realtor, and intend to enlist her services again in the future.’
JEFF & CHRISTINE WILTON
‘If you are looking to buy vacation property in Fernie, Deb Trand is the realtor you NEED to work with, she knows every detail about buying this type of property. We looked into a quarter share purchase about 9 years ago and the timing wasn’t right. We were very excited to find Deb again after all this time and she made the complicated transaction easy to handle, she patiently walked us through every step.’
MIKE AND TARA PHILLIPS
‘Our experience with Deb was excellent and we can’t recommend her services enough. She is patient, professional, thorough and not pushy. We really felt like she had our best interests in mind and worked hard to find us a property that ticked all our boxes. In a fast moving market she gave us the time we needed to think things through (did I mention she’s patient?). We also really appreciated how careful and thoughtful Deb was with regards to COVID protocols for both our families sake, and also the Sellers homes that we were going into. Deb was extremely diligent with her support through removing conditions and provided excellent resources for inspections and reporting all the way down to checklists. We’re hoping to not move for a very very long time, but if we ever do need real estate needs in the Elk Valley, Deb will be our representative.’
We have known Deb for several years and found her to be honest, helpful, and very professional to work with while she was in the property management business….a tough, competitive, business! When we decided to sell our condo in Fernie, we told her we would try to sell it ourselves but would list it with her if that did not work. She was very helpful and forthcoming with advice during our attempt to self-sell. When that became too complicated, we listed it with her. She provided the help and guidance we needed and worked with us to set a price with which we were comfortable. The timing was awkward for us (and for her); since we had to return to the states as soon as we listed it. She sold it in a matter of a few days; and kept us apprised after each showing; and candidly provided feedback to help us understand the evolving market. The sales process was even more complex across an international border and we insisted on understanding all aspects of the process. She was always available to answer our questions and very patient in helping us to understand. Thoroughly professional….and extremely knowledgeable of the market in that area!

‘Deb was fantastic to work with buying our property. She was responsive, very knowledgeable and professional. We were buying from out of province and not able to meet in person, but she was able to set up a virtual walk through for us.’
We have been visiting Fernie since 2004 and fell in love with the town. Back in 2007 we purchased a quarter share condo on the ski hill from Deb. She was easy to work with, friendly, knowledgeable and down to earth. Now over a decade later with two young boys we wanted to purchase something that we could call our own. Deb had the patience to let us figure out what we wanted exactly by showing us multiple properties over the course of a year. Once we had it ironed out, Deb would keep us constantly updated on the possibilities on the ski hill and how the market was looking. Without hesitation we would use Deb for any real estate transaction in the Fernie area.
Lande & Laurelle Edmiston
“After a couple of years of searching we narrowed in on Fernie – a haven for both skiing and mountain-biking, and perfect for us and our 3 children. Deb really helped us out, and we bought a place downtown Fernie that we are really happy with. What stands out about Deb is that she is so easy to deal with. She is energetic, committed, knowledgeable and perhaps most importantly transparent and straight forward. Wishing you success in your search.’
ANDREW AND NICOLA DAHLIN, ALBERTA
‘When we came to sell our unit at Snow Creek Lodge, Fernie Hill, we chose Deb Trand as our Realtor as she had been involved in the original purchase.
Deb was an amazing help to us. We are not familiar with the Canadian system and Deb supplied us with and guided us through the completion of all the necessary forms. She advised us on whom to choose as a lawyer and followed the process through to Transaction Date.
On a personal level, Deb always replied promptly and professionally to our emails which, as we live in a different time-zone to Canada, was very important to us. We have met her on various occasions and she is a charming and friendly person, thoughtful and considerate, with a good eye for detail.
The sale of our property was seamless and this can be attributed to Deb’s professionalism and courtesy. We cannot recommend her more highly.’
ANNA AND GRAHAM ROSS, JAPAN
‘We bought a couple of properties in Fernie through Deb and she was excellent to work with. Very knowledgeable and responsive!’
Deb made the process of selling our Fernie property a breeze. The superb listing presentation of our condo, along with the internet and social media marketing, brought us plenty of traffic in a difficult market. Deb has an extensive network in the Fernie area and she produced two buyers which enabled us to reduce the commission and negotiate an excellent price. We couldn’t have asked for more!

‘Deb Trand did such a excellent job selling our house in Fernie. We sold our house in just over a month!!! Deb is great to work with and always a pleasure to talk to. Thanks Deb for all your hard work!!!!’
GLORIA AND SHANE RAY, ALBERTA
‘We used Deb Trand’s services to both buy, and 13 years later, to sell our condo in Juniper Lodge (Fernie Alpine Resort). She was knowledgeable, responsive and provided good advice on both occasions. Our purchase and sale transactions both went smoothly. We would not hesitate to use Deb as our realtor again if we are looking to buy in Fernie again.’
Wade and Laureen Vienneau
‘For anyone wishing to market their property in the Fernie area, we highly recommend Ms.Deb Trand. She is very experienced and knowledgeable about marketing such properties, a hard worker, great communicator, and a straight, no nonsense, shooter. She also worked and coordinated seamlessly with our “Seller’s Attorney” , our property tax accountant, and others who played a role in the transfer process. For anyone coming to Fernie to enjoy its wonderful outdoor setting, its passions for skiing, fishing, biking etc., Deb knows it, and has done it herself, so that she can well relate to those wishing to become part of the Fernie Community.
Thank you Deb .’
LOIS & ELDON G.
‘We owned a quarter share in Fernie at Juniper Lodge for approximately 3 years before deciding that we had to sell. We had bought our place from Deb Trand so naturally thought we should go back to her to assist us in selling our property. Deb was incredibly professional and communicated with us every step of the way knowing the market was slowing down and we were not sure how long it would take to sell. Deb featured our property on websites, conducted open houses and even went international when advertising our property! Having done all of that landed us a sale for our target asking price within only 9 months! We would not hesitate to refer Deb and her services as she is so familiar with Fernie and the real estate market, and willing to think outside the box. Thank you Deb for your great service!’
ANITA AND LINDSAY SUTHERLAND, ALBERTA
‘Deb was great to deal with on the purchase of our new condo in Fernie! We contacted her with a last minute request to meet in Fernie, and she was able to line up showings and accommodate our timing. We had a difficult time deciding on our purchase and Deb was very patient with us while we weighed our options. Even with us living in Calgary, Deb was able to facilitate all aspects of the purchase smoothly over email. We are very happy with our new condo!’
