    About Juli Wenger


    Edmonton has been my home  for my entire adult life. As a wife and mother, I love this city. There is always something to do, whether exploring our beautiful parks, ravines, and river valley; taking part in community events; attending one of our many festivals; or enjoying a night out at one of our exceptional restaurants – this city has a lot to offer year-round!

    Ensuring you are in the right house to call home (or home base) is where my passion lies. I am a firm believer that this fit has a profound impact on your day-to-day quality of life – I am, after all, a Professional Human Ecologist (PHEc), and finding ways to improve quality of life is what we do!

    With a background in interior design, graphic design, and marketing (not to mention being a bit of a perfectionist and potentially one of the most organized people you will ever meet) I am thrilled to offer service to every single client that goes above and beyond what is “typical” in the real estate industry. I don’t waste time on activities that provide no value to you – I focus on activies that have shown results in my years of real estate experience. It really is about quality not quantity!

    If you are looking for a partner to help meet your real estate goals that holds herself to a higher standard and actually cares about the results that are right for you, I would love to hear from you!

    more about me…

    passions: music, design, food, wine, beer, travel, yoga, boating, friends and family

    causes close to my heart: The Edmonton Food Bank, The Mustard Seed, The Realtors’ Community Foundation, The Childrens’ Miracle Network and Stollery Childrens’ Hospital, Youth Emergency Shelter Society

    community involvement: TRCC Food Bank Drive Coordinator and Worship Team Band Member, Alberta Human Ecology Association Edmonton Branch Member & Volunteer

  • OverHaul Fitness


    Who is OverHaul Fitness?

    OverHaul Fitness is a Mobile and Online Personal Training company that specializes in weight loss.

    What does mobile mean? It means we come to you: we meet you at the closest Public Facility In Edmonton or Sherwood Park (eg. Terwillegar, Kinsmen, Millennium Place, etc.) or we can even meet you are your house or do the odd outside workout when the weather is nice; we have a TRX and a few other pieces of equipment.

    What is Online Personal Training?  We upload the workouts we’ve created for you, as well as your nutrition program (like a meal plan), to a smartphone app (where you can follow along as you workout and input your reps and weights) and website (where you can print out your workout, meal plan, etc.).  We then coach you through your program “from a distance,” and connect via in-app messaging, emails, skype, or phone calls; we even do face-to-face meetings for local clients (Edmonton and surrounding area).

    Our Philosophy:

    We are big believers in practicality, we believe in coaching our clients to make small practical changes that have large, long lasting and impactful results.  We also value educating our clients so that we can empower them and provide them with the necessary information to become independent.

    We also work closely with Andrea Hardy, RD, from Ignite Nutrition, which allows us to provide the greatest level of expertise for weight loss.  Further, it allows us to broaden the clientele that we can work with while remaining in the scope of our practice; with Andrea’s help we are able to effectively help Diabetics, Crohns, Gluten & Lactose intolerances, etc.  Something to note: all services done with our Dietitian can be claimed with your health benefits.

    “We help you trim your waistline, In-person or Online.”

    What is Online Training?

    Online Personal Training is a great tool for people looking for guidance, accountability, and motivation, but want the aspects of convenience, flexibility, and affordability. Wow, that’s a lot of adjectives. In a nutshell, Online Personal Training gives you all the resources that you need, but we just aren’t physically there in-person training you.

    What is Mobile Training?

    Mobile personal training means that we come to you, we primarily meet our clients at public facilities (eg. Terwillegar, Kinsmen, Millennium Place, etc.) but we also meet at: select private gyms, our clients’ homes, or even outside (see picture above).

  • Sentinel Storage


    A private corporation based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Sentinel Self-Storage is proud to be the largest 100% Canadian-owned mini storage facility in the country.

    The first Sentinel Self-Storage location opened in Edmonton in 1975. The idea was conceived after the owners saw similar structures in the United States and realized there was a need for public storage facilities in Canada.

    The evolution of self-storage in Alberta is quite interesting. City planners insisted that the first Edmonton facility was to be erected in an industrial area on the outskirts of the city because of its “high risk” potential.

    After many years and focused lobbying efforts, planners came to realize that these first generation mini storage facilities (long rows of garages) posed no threat to the community and, in fact, fulfilled a valuable need. They were then allowed in close proximity to residential areas.

    Over 40 Years Of Satisfied Self-Storage Customers In Canada

    Security, convenience, and access – these are the words that define Sentinel Self-Storage and that drive our growth and success. Thanks to our commitment and dedication to customer satisfaction, Sentinel has become a leader in self-storage. Our customers-first attitude has allowed us to expand to 23 locations across Canada, including Edmonton, Calgary, Montreal, Vancouver and Fort McMurray.

    With new advances in technology, our company continues to grow and adapt to provide you with the best service – and consequently, the best experience – possible. Stop by one of our many locations to see first hand what Sentinel Storage can offer.

    Sentinel is always looking for new acquisitions. Are you a fellow self-storage owner interested in selling your facility or property? Contact Karen Bodoano, Sentinel Operations Manager at kbodoano@sentinel.ca

  • Rock-N-Wash™

    http://www.rock-n-wash.com/ 780-951-7625 (ROCK) 4803-55 Avenue, Edmonton, T6B 3S3

    Can a trip to the car wash be a stroll down memory lane, a peek into the future, and a lot of fun all at the same time? At Rock-N-Wash™ it can. That’s because we’ve built one of North America’s most innovative car & truck wash facilities, complete with 12 hand-wash bays, a 3-minute automatic wash tunnel, two huge truck and RV bays that can accommodate any street legal vehicle you can manage to drive to our lot, and a sani-dump station with fresh water. Best of all, you will find clean facilities, convenient radio frequency payment, modern cleaning technology, and eco-friendly washing systems… not to mention lots of convenient extras and a fun 50’s & 60’s theme!

    What Makes Rock-N-Wash™ So Different?

    We aren’t just another car wash company – we have brought an entirely new way of thinking and doing business to the industry. Here are just some of the things you’ll find at Rock-N-Wash™ that are not common at any other car wash in Canada:

    -Our patent-pending three-door design that means you never have to back out of a self-wash bay again

    -A fast and convenient 3-minute touchless tunnel with monthly unlimited wash packages that cleans your car from top to bottom and gets you back on the road faster. With our radio frequency payment method, you’re sure to enjoy the convenience

    -Dry carpet shampoo, fresh scent dispenser, and air tire fills in every one of our 12 self-washing bays

    -Touchscreen point-of-sale technology that accepts barcodes, coins, gift cards, and credit cards – never change your money for tokens again, only pay for what you need and use, and get an instant electronic receipt right away

    -Fog-free wash bays so you can actually see when washing your vehicle

    -Green technology, including LED lighting and an earth friendly no-phosphate chemical

    -A retail shop stocked with everything from cleaning products to snacks, and a customer loyalty program that allows you to save 10% and earn free car washes and other fun “extras”

    As you can see, we’ve built a car & truck wash facility that’s truly out of the ordinary. We’ve done everything we possibly can to make the process as easy and convenient as possible for you, and taken steps to reduce our impact on the environment at the same time.

    We have created a fun 50’s and 60’s theme environment to enhance your experience with us. So, why not stop by Rock-N-Wash™ today and see for yourself how the past and the future have come together to create something that’s truly fab?



  • Edmonton Public Schools Foundation

    foundation.epsb.ca/ 780-970-5238 10610 129 Avenue, Edmonton

    At the Foundation, we follow one main philosophy — to help children get ready for life through public education. But what does that really mean?

    Before they even start Kindergarten, children begin learning. Research tells us that 75 per cent of brain growth occurs before age six. When children live in vulnerable circumstances without opportunities for healthy growth, their future success becomes threatened. So what can be done?

    That’s where we come in.

    At Edmonton Public Schools, the unwavering belief that all children should leave the public education system with the competencies needed to prepare them for a lifetime of success guides our work.

    The Foundation was launched February 10, 2010, for two main purposes: to spread the word about the great things happening in the public education system and to support Edmonton Public Schools across Edmonton. We do this by offering opportunities for improved learning through financial, in-kind and human resource contributions.

    So what we really do here is raise friends and funds to support early learning intervention and student success. Research shows children develop the foundation for strong communication skills, literacy, social competence, numeracy, adaptability and physical health as early as age three.

    We know investing in children today means investing in their future, our communities and our society.

    As a two-person operation, we currently support two main programs: Early Learning and Full-Day Kindergarten. We provide support to schools with students considered Edmonton’s most socially vulnerable citizens. Foundation staff: Director Tracy Poulin and Fund Development Associate Alva Shewchuk.

    We’re ready for you! We want to help you get involved in whatever way works best for you. Giving comes in all forms: financial contributions, in-kind donations and time. Whatever you choose to give, we are more than happy to receive.

    With your support, socially vulnerable children will have access to a full-day of learning in a Kindergarten classroom. Here’s how you can help!

    -Make a financial contribution

    100 per cent of all contributions go directly into a full-day Kindergarten program.

    Donations of $25 or more are eligible for an official donation receipt.

    Contact us to make a contribution via cheque or cash.

    -Make an in-kind donation

    Our schools are in need of resources and items that can enrich the learning environment. Contact us if you have books, mittens and toques, educational supplies, furniture, etc. to donate.

    -Give us with your time

    We are always looking for new Foundation friends. Contact us if you’d like to:

  • Cookies By George

    cookiesbygeorge.com 780-477-6853 10536-108 street, Edmonton

    Cookies By George, headquartered right here in Edmonton, Alberta, has been wowing people with its gourmet cookies and gifts since 1983. The cookies are so scrumptious because they are made from scratch in small batches using only natural ingredients: real eggs, the best grades of brown sugar, butter, and Belgian chocolate. There is no scrimping on quality, no preservatives are added and we still use the original recipes George developed in 1983.

    We are often asked, is there really a George? Well, yes, of course there is. We don’t see much of George ourselves. What can we say… he’s a mysterious kind of guy. He’s the type of guy who drives a ‘55 Chevy with a bumper sticker that reads, “I stop for garage sales”. But the most important thing about George is that he knows a good cookie when he sees one, and he knows a great cookie when he tastes one. Great cookies, by George! – that’s his line. There are those who think our name is just a saying, like “By George, I think I got it!”, and that there really isn’t a George, but George wouldn’t like that, now would he?

    Visit one of our 11 retail locations across Western Canada. We have five stores located in here Edmonton. Our newest, most vibrant store is located at the Edmonton International Airport, just past gate 52. In addition, we have three stores located in Calgary, and one store located in each of the following cities: Vancouver, Regina, and Winnipeg. You can also order online for delivery at cookiesbygeorge.com. Warning: tempting aromas waft through the store as each outlet bakes cookies fresh every day.
