Our History

The Aishford Real Estate Team has a long history in the real estate business. Going back to the mid-1970s in West Edmonton, Bob and Jeanette Aishford ran a Century 21 brokerage helping their clients to buy, sell and invest in the real estate market in Alberta’s capital.

Fast forward to the mid-1980s and a move to the Bow Valley. Bob and Jeanette Aishford are no longer in the real estate business, but proud parents making the decision to raise their son Robb in the Bow Valley, making what was then the quiet, small town of Canmore their new home. Bob first worked as a cabinet maker (Nordic Woodcrafters) later running a well-known local custom home building company (Rundle View Homes) while Jeanette worked as a Chartered Accountant, together, they established Canmore as their home.

In 1996, Bob returned to the world of real estate and got back into the “family business”. He utilized his experience from the cabinet-making business, his time as a general contractor with Rundle View Homes, and his own life experiences. (Being the eldest of 6 children, Bob’s late father, taught him more than few tricks that have proven useful over the years and decades since).

Taken together, Bob was able to put together all these skills, experiences, and his knowledge of the community to deliver exceptional results for his clients over the past years.

From that point onwards until his “retirement” in 2020, Bob earned a reputation for honesty, professionalism and always putting his clients first. 

That same professionalism and knowledge of the real estate market across the Bow Valley (Banff, Harvie Heights, Canmore, Exshaw, Lac Des Arcs right through to Cochrane) play a key role in the business.

In 2020, son Robb officially took over the family business. We do say officially, because, while let’s be honest. When you’ve grown up and around the industry for your entire life, you know the community; you know the neighbourhoods, you know the business owners and you know how to deliver for your clients.

For Robb, running the family business is quite the honour of raising the next generation (hello Bryson) even more so. Who knows? Maybe the next generation of real estate agents from the Aishford family could be just around the corner.

Now operating as the Aishford Real Estate Team , Robb runs the day-to-day elements of the business, while Bob remains active in a senior leadership role through guidance, strategic planning and real estate advisory.

We’re proud of our history and most importantly we’re here to help you with your real estate needs.
