Unveiling Success: The Dynamic Trio Behind Banff Legacy Inn's Innovative Real Estate Approach

Vivian Lee has been a leading real estate agent for 26 years, consistently ranking in the top three at Alberta's largest real estate firm. Since 2017, she has served as the sales representative for The Mercer at Canmore, a major Airbnb project by Canmore Developers, overcoming significant challenges to sell 20 units over two to three years. Her innovative approach has significantly influenced the Canmore Airbnb market, broke previous management monopolies and returning profits to investors by promoting self-management through smart technologies.

During the pandemic, when the Airbnb and hotel markets stalled, Vivian successfully attracted numerous clients, acquiring over 100 Airbnb units, and dominating the Canmore market. She has since represented many developers exclusively, and in 2019, she established her own Airbnb property management company, managing nearly 40 units to date. Additionally, throughout the pandemic, Vivian and Charles engaged in several small-scale joint ventures, gaining hands-on experience in buying, renovating, and selling properties, further broadening their development expertise.

Charles Yuan, known for his meticulous attention to detail and financial acumen, has worked closely with Vivian for the past 9 years. Together, they bring a user-centric perspective to their projects, emphasizing practicality and user experience, which is deeply informed by their extensive sales and management experience.

They have hired John McIsaac as the project manager for Banff Legacy Inn. John moved to Canmore in 1991 and founded Bow View Homes Ltd., developing his business into a well-respected builder of quality custom homes. Known for his community involvement and adventurous spirit, John has earned accolades such as the Best Multi-Family Site Award and the Rotarian of the Year Award.

Together, Vivian, Charles, and John form a robust team poised to successfully execute the Banff Legacy Inn project, reflecting a deep understanding of the market and client needs, with a clear focus on enhancing the consumer experience.
