How Does Our Service Work?

After a quick registration where you tell us a little about yourself and your real estate interests, you are provided access to the full site where you can access resources about Canadians buying real estate in foreign markets like Florida, Arizona and soon more. In addition you will be able to view new master planned communities that we have handpicked for Canadians based on their amenities, location and value. New communities, markets and information will be added on an ongoing basis.

Upon registration, a Snowbird Concierge Agent will reach out to introduce themselves personally, confirm your needs and timetable and discuss how we can be of assistance. There is no pressure – if you are just kicking tires and thinking about a distant future you are just as welcome as the person who wants to purchase a home this month.

If  a resale home or condo is a consideration, we will pull in one of our exceptional partner Realtors® on the ground in your preferred markets to provide local context and current MLS listed options via email that meet your criteria. It is important to understand that Snowbird Realty Inc., is not a lead generation company – we will remain engaged throughout the process.

Once you decide to make a visit south to evaluate short listed real estate opportunities we can help insure that you are taken care of and qualified people are expecting you.

Why Do I Have To Register?

Our goal is to work closely with our customers – we are not trying to be everything to everyone. We ask users to register so that we can understand what your needs are, and therefore assist accordingly. There is no obligation and you can unsubscribe at anytime by emailing There is no charge for our service.
