Specialized commercial and residential real estate knowledge, paired with 28 years of combined local market experience, is now available to Wainwright, Alta. residents at Century 21 Connect Realty. Owner Art Melin, recently with Re/Max, was previously an award-winning Century 21 agent and went back to that banner to establish his own business.

“Wainwright is a great place to live, work and do business,” says Melin. “I love my job. We get to see the impact of our hard work all the time when we run into past clients and hear how they love their homes. It’s an amazing feeling of accomplishment.”

Melin has been in real estate for 14 years, achieving the Century 21 Centurion top sales award for four consecutive years.

“It’s a huge advantage to offer both residential and commercial market expertise, especially in markets like Wainwright where in-depth knowledge is needed but not widely available,” says Brian Rushton, executive vice president, Century 21 Canada.

Melin has been president of the Wainwright Stampede for 18 years and involved with the event for 25 years. He also donates his time and volunteers at the legion and other local organizations.
