John's Biography

John is the third generation of the Osborne family to work in the real estate industry in Edmonton and represents the first generation to specialize in investment real estate. After working with the family business, John struck out on his own with a brokerage business in the late 1970s. In 1980 he accepted a position with Oxford Developments in the development division. Later John accepted a position with Fidinam Canada and though this position had regional responsibilities, his office remained in Edmonton. When Fidinam sold its portfolio, John worked as a broker for a short period of time until a position at Morguard Investments was offered to him. He ran the Morguard Edmonton office for 12 years. John then went to work for Westcorp Inc followed by a five year position with Edmonton Airports.

During this time John maintained his brokerage license and continued his education through enrollment in real estate courses. In 2001 Falcon Realty Ltd. was created and in 2005 the company name was changed to JW Osborne and Associates Ltd. Hi-lights of John’s career include:
