Located in the heart of Central Alberta, the city of Red Deer features mix of rolling hills and fertile farmland backed by a picturesque view of the Rocky Mountains on the south west horizon. As the midway point between the major urban centres of Edmonton and Calgary, the Red Deer region is one of the fastest growing areas in the nation. With a population of over 90,000, the Red Deer Real Estate market contains over 30,000 homes.
Red Deer is a thriving community, ideal for young and growing families looking for a friendly, safe place to live, work and play. Offering affordable housing, short commutes, plenty of wide open space and excellent education and healthcare systems, Red Deer offers a wide variety of amenities at a scale you would expect from a larger city.
Immediate access to Highway 2 (the primary north-south arterial highway in Alberta) makes Red Deer a key point along the Edmonton-Calgary Corridor. Red Deer finds itself primely located in the centre of a market of over 2 million people within a 150km radius which includes both Edmonton and Calgary and two International Airports.
As a result, the Red Deer Region has a diverse economy: major industries include oil and gas, farming, transportation, a growing manufacturing industry, retail and wholesale, and a vibrant tourism industry. Business big and small make their home here, and the entrepreneurial spirit is alive throughout Central Alberta.
