Bedrock Owner Shares First-Home Story With CREB Now

On April 6, Bedrock Realty owner John Savard was interviewed by online magazine CREB Now about his firs- time home purchase.

In early April 2018, Bedrock Realty owner John Savard was included in an interview by CREB Now, a Calgary real estate magazine. Savard, along with other notable Calgary business people, shared the story of his buying his first home.

Below is an excerpt from the story. Read the full article.

Savard’s first home purchase was in Inglewood in 2001. He was 32 years old at the time. As a first-time buyer, he says he was lucky to have a REALTOR® that had closing skills when it came to the purchase, which was a “fantastic thing.”

“It was an up-down duplex, because the mortgage was a little expensive. I bought it with a basement suite and I rented out the garage. I had a roommate upstairs so I could afford my mortgage.”

Bedrock Realty Owner Featured in Business Magazine

Calgary commercial realtor and owner of Bedrock Realty, John Savard, was recently included in an article in Calgary Business magazine regarding the current state of the city’s downtown office vacancies.

Below is an excerpt from the article. Read the entire article here.

John Savard, principal, office leasing specialist with Bedrock Realty Advisors Inc., says tenants who had a line of sight on their long-term income streams in 2017 took advantage of low office rents and took out leases for as long as they could, signing seven-to-15-year-old deals.

“I don’t see anyone willing to pay economic rents,” he says. “We saw a lot of activity but that activity was based upon flight to quality. New sublease space coming to the marketplace. Unfortunately, I don’t see that the market has turned a corner yet.”

Thank you to Calgary Downtown Office Space for Business and business reporter Mario Toneguzzi for including us as a trusted resource in your publication!

A recession like the one Alberta has experienced over the past few years can devastate industries, communities, and corporations. It’s important to have advisors who understand the cycle and can help clients weather the storm. John Savard of Bedrock Realty Advisors is one of those resources.

In the 14 years that he has been working as a commercial and Office Space for rent in Calgary, Savard has seen it all.

“I’ve seen a few different markets going from a balanced market to an extreme landlord’s market to a tenant’s market and back again. Now we’re fully in a tenant’s market,” he says.

That’s great news for Savard’s clients. He specializes exclusively in tenant transactions, eliminating the conflict of interest some competitors encounter when representing both sides of the coin.

“We believe we can only serve one master. We feel we can offer the best services to our local tenant clients because we don’t have anyone else’s interests at heart,” he says.

With the downtown vacancy rate sitting at around 25 percent, there is an immense amount of office space available and tenants have their pick. Savard uses his expertise and experience to ensure clients are getting the best deal possible regardless of what they need.

His clients fall into one of three categories: those seeking lease renewals, those looking for a new space or those subleasing. And in a recession market, early renewals are a great way to help clients improve their own bottom line.

“You don’t want to waste the opportunity that exists in a recession,” he says. “Now is a time to create significant value for your company by getting a much lower lease rate.”

Savard and his team at Bedrock have been successful in helping clients negotiate early lease renewals with landlords. By blending their current, likely higher, lease rates with ones more indicative of today’s market, clients enjoy an immediate reducction on in their real estate costs while landlords keep tenants in their buildings for an extended term. While rates will likely rise in the near future, the low rates are a great opportunity for Bedrock Realty’s clients today.

Over the past 14 years, John Savard has helped hundreds of tenants negotiate their perfect commercial space, establishing him as one of the top performing commercial brokers in the field. And as Calgary climbs out of this recession and grows stronger, thanks to his guidance and expertise, Savard’s clients will be stronger too.

Bedrock’s John Savard recently had the opportunity to chat with on of Calgary’s most prolific business writers, Mario Toneguzzi, about a story he was working on regarding Calgary office space condo scene. Below is an excerpt from the story, Read the Full Article.

“I start the conversation with my client’s growth plans,” he said. “If they tell me they will most likely be the same square footage in seven years, then I highly recommend purchasing an office condo. It is at the seven-year point that the mortgage paydown is substantial enough – assuming only a minimal asset appreciation – that your return on investment is greater than paying rent.

“If my client’s seven-year plan has it growing its square footage, then a purchase may not be a wise choice. If my client outgrows its condo before the seven-year point, then it has to find new space and put the condo on the leasing or for sale market.”
