WILL HICKEY - BROKER/REALTOR/ TEAM LEADER
After attending Taylor University Collage, I decided to pursue my passion for business and become a licensed Realtor. I soon became a top producing Realtor in Edmonton, and learned the business side of owning and operating a Real Estate office. In 2017 I made a change with companies and achieved my Real Estate Broker licence to join the industry changing YEGPro Realty company. YEGPro Realty is a locally owned, independent brokerage that serves the Edmonton Market. We focus on agent development, community service, giving back to the Edmonton communities, and being leaders, shaping the way Real Estate is done.
In the fast pace and changing Real Estate Industry, YEGPro Realty allows me to provide innovative and creative solutions that keeps us ahead of our competitors. All the while I have continued to own and operate a high performance sales team, to serve the needs of our Real Estate clients. Will Hickey and Associates Sales Team is a group of six licensed Sales Associates, one full time Client Care Manager, and one full time Marketing/Social Media Specialist. We are a results driven organization, selling more than 100 homes per year. We work hard to lead the industry in our digital marketing campaign’s, and social media presence. We continually expand our business by retaining repeat clients and serving previous clients referrals from our friends and families.
My passion is helping others find what their true drive is. Whether a client has outgrown their family home, thinking of downsizing, or relocating to their dream destination. My goal is to be honest throughout the process and try to navigate this ever changing industry. Selling or buying a home is an emotional process, it’s my job to be the sounding board and the voice of reason when important decisions need to be made.

CANDACE ROBINSON - REALTOR
Edmonton has been my home all my life, I am a true "Edmontonian”. I grew up in the southeast area of the city, raised two beautiful girls and still remain there to this day. I love this city and am proud to watch it grow.
My real estate career began in 1993. I started with The Real Estate Training Institute in administration and became the registrar until the institute closed in 2013. I made so many wonderful relationships with the people that came through the Institute for their Real Estate courses and training. When the time came to make a decision on what direction to take my career, Real Estate was already my passion.
My family and my home are so very important to me so I understand the emotions that come with looking for a new or first home. My goal is to make every step of the experience relaxed and positive. I don’t believe in high-pressure selling, no question goes unanswered, and I'm never too busy to help. Real Estate is a fast-paced industry and my commitment to all my clients is keeping on top of what is happening in the market and the changes in the industry.
My goal for all of my clients is to feel confident and relaxed with the entire experience and have a giggle or two. One of the best feelings is handing a client the keys to their new home and knowing I had a part of bringing a smile to their face.

JANET OLSON - REALTOR
Janet Olson is a Licensed Real Estate Agent who “loves what she does” and considers it a huge honor to be able to guide her clients through one of the biggest and most important investments they will ever make – their home. This passion can be seen in every aspect of Janet’s business – from meeting initially to determine exactly what her clients want and do not want and continuing throughout every step of the home buying/selling process. She prides herself on her accessibility, approachability and uncompromising standards. She will work feverishly to ensure a positive, rewarding experience for her clients, and exemplifies “Real Estate Done Differently”.
Janet gravitated towards sales after completing Business/Marketing education and has never looked back. She realized how much she loves building relationships and helping people solve their problems. Her sales experience over the past 20 years has included advertising and staffing. However, regardless of the product or service, Janet quickly learned to identify her client’s pain point and invested whatever time and energy necessary to make sure that was solved.
After much time spent in both large and small corporations, another Realtor and friend encouraged Janet and gave her the opportunity to enter the “real estate realm”. To say it is fulfilling is an understatement. Her passion for building relationships, problem-solving, and working hard to help her clients realize their dreams can be seen daily in her work.
When not working, Janet enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and being involved in various activities with her church.

KELLY GRANT - REALTOR
I began my career with Re/Max in 2005 and continue to find it a rewarding and challenging profession. I learned the hard way that Real Estate can be either a step to success and financial freedom, or it can be a costly mistake! I purchased my first house in my early 20s from a private sale without the help of a realtor. It turned out to be a very poor decision that cost me tens of thousands of dollars and years to dissolve. I decided then that one day I would become a realtor to help others from making the same mistake. I embarked on a path to educate myself in all matters related to real estate. I worked in finance to understand mortgages, construction to understand how to build, renovate and repair houses, and took several courses in sales and negotiation. As fate would have it, a customer who ran a Re/Max office gave me the final push to pursue my dream and get my license.
Today I take much pride in assisting people to make wise decisions and find happiness in helping them find their dream home. Real estate can be a complex and emotional process and I am here to guide the transaction smoothly, alleviate some of the stress and meet the needs of my clients. I continue my pursuit of knowledge in this ever-changing industry and value the many wonderful people I’ve met along the way.
In my spare time, you’ll find me relaxing with my son and my partner John at our cabin, enjoying the simpler things in life, and keeping busy with a few renovation projects of our own!
