Martha Paridaen was born in Alberta to a family of Dutch immigrants to Canada. Strong work ethics, determination and integrity were hallmarks of family life. A life-long interest in architecture steered Martha through a Diploma in Interior Design from Mount Royal College followed by a Bachelor of Education in Vocations of Drafting and Design from the University of Alberta. Various jobs to fund her insatiable interest in learning took her to remote parts of Canada and countries around the world. In time the settled life and family were a happy, welcome change. Following the demands of raising a young family Martha returned to the workforce in various endeavors including teaching, residential drafting and design, project estimating and materials supply and property management. Martha raised her family of three in the rolling hills of classic ranch country in south western Alberta. A desire for the authentic, hard working lifestyle of her youth were instrumental in raising her own family with those similar timeless, high quality standards. As the family grew up and pursued their own interests and adventure, Martha embarked on her Real Estate career. Working as an agent for the Real Estate Centre is a culmination of a life’s work and interest. Martha enjoys the challenge and satisfaction of working with buyers and sellers. Every relationship and transaction are unique and require focused attention and care. With Real Estate Centre’s participation with Sports Afield Trophy Properties, Martha has embraced this opportunity to showcase this area and stellar properties and business ventures in Alberta and British Columbia.
