About Ryan & Erin Sawatzky
Erin and I are adventurers and entrepreneurs to the core. We came to Yellowknife in June 2008 and we have let this city steel our hearts. I am from Victoria BC and Erin from Fredricton NB and we traveled here for an adventure on a one year commitment and we just never left. We operate Green Haven Guest House in YK, a Real Estate Marketing Company and I do Energy Management for fun. Our lives are pretty busy but that's the way we like it.
Ryan & Erin Sawatzky purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Ryan & Erin Sawatzky chose Yellowknife
We bought this property a number of years ago, however it finished in winter 2015 and we started renting it out in 2016. We did some of the marketing for this project and got to see first hand in design stages. We liked the micro condo concept and wanted to be one of the first to own one in Yellowknife. We own similar property in Victoria and has proven to be a real gem!
What makes this Condo unique
The lake is only steps away. It is located in one of the best neighbourhoods in Yellowknife. The ski trails are only a quick shuffle away. Close to town without any of the challenges of being in the core.
