Great Sales Make for Happy Fresh Starts.
At Rost Real Estate, we make your big moves easy.
Does this sound familiar?
You know it’s time. Your family has outgrown your current space, or the perfect opportunity to invest in next-level dreams has come along, or maybe you’ve reached that moment when it’s finally possible to move into something smaller and enjoy the rest of your life on your terms, living off the profit of your current home. But here’s the thing: selling seems exhausting, right?
Your home is well-loved, but with love comes the need for repairs before it’s market ready. How do you upgrade without sinking a fortune into renovations, and where do you even begin?
Life doesn’t slow down just because you’re moving. Between packing, scoping out new school districts, and filling out change of address forms, when do you have time to research market value?
You know your property’s amazing, but you’ve seen homes linger on haphazardly designed listings. How can you be sure your sale is attractively featured in a competitive market?
Rost Real Estate has your back.
While we’ve coordinated the sale of over 400 properties in the greater Edmonton area, we weren’t always REALTORS®. Thanks to a combined wealth of history in industries adjacent to realty, our award-winning team has advanced professional experience, education, and community connections in other home selling concerns, including home renovations & repair, interior decorating and home staging, residential zoning, home evaluation and inspection, marketing, and market analysis.
We work together to contribute our insights and skills to every home sale, which means your property will receive expert attention from three agents, not just one. We’ll help bring your home to listing-ready standards with cost effective tips (and materials on discount from community partners), assist you with all paperwork so you move with confidence through the process, and beautifully market your home on numerous online high-traffic platforms to make sure as many buyers as possible see your property in it’s very best light.
Rost Real Estate
Meet Your Team.
Rost Real Estate is a family-owned business. We’re proud to serve the communities where we grew up and continue to live.
We’re here to help you find the perfect place, or sell your space as you journey onward, but, most importantly, we’re here to support our neighbors.

We’re Rost Real Estate: Kristyn, Brendan, and Melissa. We turn clients into friends, houses into homes,
…and we’re the REALTORS® next door.
How Do We Begin?
Our process begins as all things should: with a friendly chat over coffee. We’ll visit your home with a couple of lattes and review the details of your property, document your home’s renovations, addition, and upgrade history, and help uncover your home’s most attractive features.
After our chat,
We’ll assess the current market value and create a personalized sales and marketing strategy to best feature your house to potential buyers, and position it in the current market. We’ll evaluate active inventory, recent sales, and explore why any similar expired homes did not achieve a successful sale, analyzing comparative market statistics within the community.
The summary we provide during our next meeting will present our suggested list price as well as the strategy behind it, and we’ll consider – of course – your timeline and personal goals.
Together, we’ll figure out the perfect price to set to achieve your desired outcomes.
After that, we’ll help you organize. We’ll provide step-by-step instructions on what agreed-upon tasks need to be completed in order to reach your goals, and we’ll coordinate best marketing practices like professional photography and effective listing copy, along with an estimated timeline. The whole through, you can be certain of our dedication to helping you achieve your goals. As you’ll soon see, you have a friend in Rost Real Estate. You can trust we’ll represent and advise you with expert insight, unwavering support, and personal attention.

We’ll organize the many tasks involved with selling your home so you don’t have to keep them top of mind.
Because a Promise is a Promise…
