Meet Maria Angela: Kicking off the New Year by taking possession of her new Mark 101 Condo
Maria Angela Ambrosino is kicking off 2018 on a high note as she takes possession of her new suite in building one of our Mark 101 condominiums. She purchased the unit in October, and we did everything we could to make it the home of her dreams! Shane Multi-Family offers quite a few suite styles at The Mark 101 but Maria’s brand new two-bedroom, two-bathroom, A-1 model is the perfect fit for the young professional.

Moving into The Mark 101
While shopping for her dream home for more than six months, Maria Angela noticed a difference between Shane Multi-Family and other condominiums in the market. After such a long shopping process, Maria spent a lot of time analyzing the builders offering condominiums in all corners of Calgary. She recognized that the quality of each unit is above and beyond the city’s average. At the same time, Maria saw the value included in the base price of Shane Multi-Family units.

As a first-time home buyer moving away from her family, Maria Angela had a few boxes to check before signing on the dotted line.

She first chose the Sage Hill location to be close to her mother in the family home. By living in a neighbouring community, Maria won’t miss too many of her mother’s home-cooked Italian dinners! Location: check!

Most residents in The Mark 101 rave about the location: a quick drive out of the city to the mountains, while still living in the city limits for all that urban living has to offer. The Mark 101 location is also ideal because of the convenience of the Sage Hill Crossing Shopping Centre across the road. Residents love that all their necessities are so close by. “This is a wonderful community. There are so many amenities around,” Maria said. Household names like Loblaws City Market, Bulk Barn, Walmart, London Drugs, and Wine and Beyond are within walking distance. Plus, there is a Calgary Public Library for the bookworms among us. Convenience: check!

A factor that could have changed Maria’s mind about living in The Mark 101 is her daily commute to work. Maria teaches in South Calgary. However, she said her arrival at home each night will definitely be worth the daily commute. She chose a home she loves, despite a little extra time tacked on in the mornings. That’s what happens when your heart identifies its home on the first visit!

All other factors aside, her new home speaks for itself at first glance. “What I liked best about this unit is the design and the layout of it,” Maria said. “I found it really appealing.” It’s a space she will love living in for years to come. “I’m really excited to be moving into my first home!” Design: check!

We are thrilled that Maria chose Shane. Dianne Bidinost, the Area Manager at The Mark 101 loved working with Maria Angela. “She was an absolute pleasure to work with,” Dianne said. “Her infectious sweet personality combined with being a very savvy young professional adds so much to our Shane family.”
