President: Dan Leonn
Dan has been in the construction industry for 15 years. Through high school and college he worked industrial construction in Leamington Ontario. Mainly masonry work was performed while maintaining and expanding the Heinz factory. After a 5 year stint in Banff skiing, Dan moved to Calgary to flip properties through the boom from 2005-2007. After the market correction in 2007, he went to work in site supervision for a custom home builder to learn the craft of building estate homes. In 2009, he founded True North and has built a strong reputation with customers through the years.
From an education standpoint Dan has achieved a diploma in accounting from St. Clair College. He has passed both the Mortgage Agent and Real Estate Agent courses at Mt Royal University and worked in the mortgage business for 2 years. He then achieved his bachelor of management degree with an Accounting Major from the University of Lethbridge Calgary evening program over 3 years. The skillset acquired through education combined with on site experience has lead Dan to become a construction and real estate professional. This helps the client to build based on value. He owns 4 properties in Calgary.
Dan is an avid skier and enjoys his free time in Revelstoke and Canmore.
