Our goal with EdmontonCommercial.com is simple: be the #1 source of information for commercial real estate in Edmonton. We were the first (and still the only) blog to publish a weekly market report in addition to providing numerous articles about the process of leasing or purchasing a property. We also provide tenants and buyers with free searches of our entire database of listings. Why do we provide this all for free? Well, we just hope that when the time comes for you to lease or buy, you give us an opportunity to be your agents. And if you go in another direction that’s fine too. We still welcome you to peek around and hope you might consider sharing one of our articles or telling a friend about us. Either way, we hope you get some value from our site and we thank you for visiting!
