Kari Calder

The decision to purchase your home is one of the most important decisions you will ever make and will also be one of your most significant investments. Done right, it can also be one of the most exciting and fulfilling times in your life! Kari Calder is there to help you through the process and provide you and your family with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you have a REALTOR ® working with your best interests in mind. 

Kari has been involved in the real estate world with her parents, who started investing in Saskatchewan real estate when she was 12. She also began managing rental properties when she was 17 years old, giving her the appreciation and ability to understand the Saskatoon revenue home market. She had the fortunate upbringing of helping out with these revenue homes, from helping insulate attics to shingling roofs which makes her more knowledgeable than your average Saskatoon real estate agent.

Kari is open-minded and confident, which comes from travelling around the world on her own when she was in her mid 20's. On her travels, she met and befriended people from every walk of life, and as a result,  she could connect with almost everyone she met, no matter their situation. Kari believes this is a vital asset in being a successful Saskatoon real estate agent.

Kari has lived across Canada, but her love for Saskatoon was deciding where to settle down and put down some roots. In her opinion, after many years and countries travelled, Saskatchewan-born and raised people are amongst the friendliest and most accommodating people in the world.

Kari moved fast for us in the fast paced market, she was professional, straight forward, and gave us very valuable opinions and had us think about things in houses that we never would've on our own. Even during the pandemic, working with Kari and her team was a breeze and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a home!" Eric S

Trusted Saskatoon Realtor Marla Janzen Shares Her Home Maintenance Tips For February

Marla Janzen is an award-winning SASKATOON & WARMAN REALTOR  she takes action to sell her client's homes and find them the perfect new place to live while negotiating the best terms and price possible. She loves what she does and takes great pride in providing excellence in customer service to all of her clients. 

Marla Janzen is a  TRUSTED SASKATOON REAL ESTATE AGENT and she is eager to provide Trusted Saskatoon real estate Tips that help the public! In her latest tip, she shares some helpful information and advice about maintaining your home in February in Saskatchewan! 

 Trusted Saskatoon Realtor Marla Janzen Shares Expert Advice About Home Maintenance You Should Do In February.  

Winter in Saskatchewan can be extremely damaging to your home’s health. Temperature drops and high winds can put a strain on both the interior and exterior. During these bitterly cold days, it’s easy to fantasize about warmer climates.  

While you wait for warmer weather, use the next few weeks to complete some household maintenance tasks.

1. Change batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors – Change the batteries in all smoke alarms twice a year or follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for changing the battery. Every two years, take the cover off, clean it with a damp cloth, and carefully vacuum the inside of the alarm. All smoke alarms have an expiration date.

2. Check gutters and roof for ice dams and icicles – Ice dams and icicles form when melting snow re-freezes at the roofline of your home. If left unchecked, ice dams can become large enough to prevent water from draining off the roof, resulting in roof leaks. Keep your gutters clean, your downspouts functional, and your attic well insulated to avoid this potentially costly repair.

3. Have heavy snow cleared off of your roof and ensure snow is removed from around exterior walls – A significant accumulation of snow on your roof can cause a slew of issues and endanger the structural integrity of your home. While our roofs are built to withstand the elements, they require regular maintenance to remain durable winter after winter.

4. Check for drafts around doors and windows – Keeping your home free of drafts will help keep interior temperatures where you want them without taxing your heating system.

5. On warm days keep eaves trough spouts down for proper drainage – Gutters and downspouts are essential parts of a home’s exterior, but if they aren’t installed or maintained properly, they can cause problems. Keep your gutters clean. The most common drainage problem is overflowing gutters. Everything from balls, and dead squirrels to bird nests to sticks, leaves, and debris piling up will then develop a cover over the leader drain, causing the gutter to overflow.

Marla Janzen has a keen eye for house layout and home staging, which really benefits her clients, most of whom are past client referrals! She guarantees to provide you with a stress-free, hassle-free, wonderful experience and we are sure once you have met her that you will not contact anyone else!


Trusted Saskatoon Jewellers at Batemans Share Secrets of Custom Designed Jewellery

Bateman Jewellers are Trusted Saskatoon jewellery experts! Did you know that they are the oldest independent jewellery store in Saskatoon?  Bateman Jewellers maintain that the relationship with their clients is very important to them. In their latest Saskatoon jewellery tip, they share secrets of custom designed jewellery.


1. You don’t need to be a jewellery designer to get a custom jewellery piece designed. Clients looking for custom jewellery don’t actually need to know a thing about jewellery design. All that’s needed is a sketch (and the sketch doesn’t have to be perfect) or a photo of the piece desired. This is particularly true with CAD jewellery. For example, if you share your sketch or photo with Batemans, we can turn your vision into a CAD model that can then be printed, cast and finished. You choose the stones, metals and size for your final piece.

 2. The customer can be involved every step of the way. With custom design, there is collaboration and communication between the client and the designer throughout the creation process.

3. It’s easier to stay within your budget. Working with a designer gives you the option to choose design elements that are more suitable to your finances; an option not available with mass-produced jewellery.

4. You can have heirloom pieces recreated. One of the best things about customized jewellery and CAD technology is that it makes it possible to recreate a sentimental piece of jewellery – pieces that were lost or damaged over time. CAD makes it possible to bring a cherished piece back to life.

5. Redesign your jewellery. When you order custom, you can also mix new ideas with elements of another piece of jewellery. For example, you might want to use the gemstones from another piece in your customized piece, or you might ask the designer to incorporate some of the design elements of the old piece in the new piece. You can also take existing CAD models and request modifications.

6. Custom 3D-printed jewellery is becoming increasingly popular amongst celebrities and the wealthy. Not long ago, if you’d asked someone about CAD jewellery they would have had no clue as to what you were talking about, but that’s no longer true today; CAD jewellery has gone mainstream. This is largely because 3D-printed jewellery has become so popular among the wealthy, celebrities and Hollywood fashionistas, not to mention famous jewellery designers, all of whom are always looking for an edge and the newest, chicest fashions.

7. Social media is influencing the growing popularity of custom jewellery. The rise of visual social media sites such as Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram has led to a greater awareness of fashion, styles and trends among the general public. New looks and styles are shared with just a click of a button and the images travel across the globe in an instant. Global trends influence each other, fueling a greater desire for uniqueness and originality, which exactly suits custom work. From custom engagement rings to custom body jewellery, people are looking for more diversity and more options. This has naturally led to an increase in the demand for the services provided by CAD professionals.

8 . CAD/CAM has made custom jewellery design not only more accessible, but it has opened up design options not possible before. CAD technology has made it possible to create pieces with greater complexity, originality, and sheer beauty than ever before. And it has simultaneously made the customization process more accessible to everyone.

Bateman Jewellers continues to have a strong reputation in Saskatoon, and this is due to their loyal customers who appreciate the friendly, family-orientated store that they have come to expect! As a team, Cam and Jan are committed to ensuring that Bateman Jewellers remains the same for many generations to come.

Trusted Saskatoon Contractors K & S Contracting Discuss Different Types of Basement Foundations

K & S Contracting specializes in foundation repair for homeowners across Saskatchewan. In addition, they also offer general contracting services to Saskatoon and the surrounding area. In their latest Trusted Saskatoon tip, K & S Contracting, Trusted Saskatoon General Contractors, and foundation specialists, share the types of basement foundations.


There are 3 main basement foundations found in Saskatoon and the area, they are: 

  1. Full Basement Foundations 
  2. Daylight Basement Foundations 
  3. Crawl Space Foundations


This type of basement is generally found on a 2 story or a bungalow home.  A bungalow is a home in which you walk up to the front door, and generally, there are only 1 or 2 steps to the door. Once you walk into the home you have a full staircase to go into the basement.  A full staircase is 13 to 16 steps. For both a 2-storey or a bungalow the windows in these types of homes are smaller, generally the opening about 24 inches at ground level. 

Full basements can either be finished or unfinished; finished basements are insulated and installed with drywall and flooring, providing living and storage space. Unfinished basements are not insulated and their walls and floors are left bare. 

This type of basement is one of the most expensive foundations to build and can be susceptible to mould and moisture. 


This type of home is generally found in a home with a walk-out basement. As their name suggests, daylight basements let in some natural light and aren’t as susceptible to mould or moisture. This type of basement is perfect for a homeowner who wants a patio or access from their basement to outdoors.  


Crawl space foundations are elevated several feet off footings, leaving a small protected space (usually three or four feet) between the ground and the base of the building. The foundation walls are built partially underground and shorter than basement foundation walls, making crawl spaces a happy medium between standard foundations and basement foundations. They are deeper than standard foundations and more shallow than basements.

Though they eliminate the possibility of having a finished basement, crawl spaces provide easier access to piping or plumbing than standard foundations. They also encourage more airflow underneath the building, which helps keep things cool in warmer climates. Crawl spaces are the least expensive type of basement foundation since they don’t require as much excavation. 

Do you know what type of basement foundation your home has and if it’s susceptible to moisture?  If you aren’t sure,  we recommend you call Steve immediately and ask him to provide you with the information you need. Not sure if you should purchase the home if it has foundation issues, check on Steve’s blog here.
