When Alice and Justin bought their first home together they were disappointed with the experience: their agent did not show a lot of care and they felt like just another transaction.
Alice and Justin Hagen founded Calibre Real Estate in 2009 because they were determined to make a difference.
Alice studied forensic science but always had an interest in property – it was something her grandmother encouraged. She followed her passion and now proudly leads a team of people at Calibre who, like her, care about the clients they work with and the communities they work in.
As far as Alice is concerned, people come first. Whether you’re a buyer, seller, renter or landlord, Alice strives to take the confusion out of your property experience. For Alice, good customer service is everything.
Alice is also big on community support. Calibre Real Estate is a great advocate for being involved in the community and giving back.
