Brett Malenica , REALTOR®
A GPG Top Producer - GPG Legacy Award
After completing a golf program in college and spending time in the golf industry, my interest in the professional side of real estate grew very quickly through my own experience purchasing residential and commercial properties, and watching my wife, Diandra Malenica, in action! I have been a licensed REALTOR® since 2016, and have continued to expand my personal portfolio.
I have a natural drive to excel and exceed expectations, and I thrive in the "get out what you put in" envitonment of real estate. I bring dedication and energy to the selling and buying experience, and I always go the 'extra mile' for my clients!
PERSONAL: I have an athletic background in hockey and golf, but I enjoy many other sports - It's all part of my competitive nature! My wife and I have 2 awesome sons that are our world, and we also enjoy working together in real etate and other investment projects!
Navpreet Sandhu, REALTOR®
This is my 2nd year in real estate, and I am excited for the start of a great career pursuing my passion! I received my business degree in accounting from SAIT, however after some time in accounting I discovered that was not the right direction for me. From 2016 to 2019, I worked with my family to establish and manage a restaurant, managing the construction side of the project personally. Through that process, I learned about digital marketing and co-founded a marketing agency with other partners. I fell in love with digital marketing and saw that it went together perfectly with my interest in real estate, and I decided to get my real estate license to finally pursue my passion. I am now a dedicated, full time REALTOR! I love real estate because it requires you to keep pushing yourself and learn new skills, I love the interaction with clients and colleagues, and I love the challenge. It’s a privilege to help people buy and sell real estate - which is one of the biggest decisions and investments in most lives!

A GPG Top Producer
GPG 2019 Rookie of the Year - GPG Achievers Club
I entered into real estate at the beginning of 2018 and have been a licensed REALTOR® since 2019. After working over 12 years at Shaw Communications, eight of which were within the corporate leadership team, I made the incredibly tough decision to leave for family-focused reasons. My wife and I have three children with our oldest falling on the severe side of the autistic spectrum. We focused a great deal of time and energy on doing whatever necessary to give him a better life and future. This led us to Ottawa, to be closer to family support. In Ottawa, an opportunity arose which brought me into leading a real estate brokerage of over 50 agents. The role parallelled a great deal with what I had previously done for years at Shaw leading sales and support teams. After learning the business side of real estate and focusing primarily on digging into the benefits of building the right kind of brokerage for both the agents and clients, I knew there was another great opportunity to learn even more by becoming an agent myself. As a family, we were naive to what Ontario had compared to Alberta for overall autism support when it came to programs and services for our son, so we made the decision to return home to Calgary in June 2019. That is when I became licensed to trade in Residential Real Estate. In October 2019, I sat down with Brett Malenica, who was also a friend and Realtor in Calgary. We discussed our individual visions for the future and they very much aligned. Since then we started the First Line team and I am incredibly excited about what we are able to do for our clients and other agents moving forward. His wife Diandra Malenica, who had more real estate experience than the two of us combined, joined our team at the end of the 2019 year. She is another great addition to our team moving forward.
In July 2020, I was named the Rookie Of The Year nationally for the Greater Property Group and was in the TOP 1% of all new agents that had been licensed since June 2019 in Calgary in Overall Transactions and Total Transaction Value.
I have also been licensed to trade in Commercial Real Estate. I look forward to helping so many more incredible people find their dream home or get the best return on their investment when selling, alongside creating the space for developers and builders to reshape the visual landscape of our amazing city.
Above all, Calgary is home. Alberta is home. I literally get shivers driving around Calgary to meet up with clients. I love and appreciate the mindset and heart that exists within this city. It is like no other. From the minute I first moved to Calgary originally in 2011, I knew that the mentality of the majority here is to build a better life for their family and all those they surround themselves with. I love this city!

I have been a REALTOR® since 2011. Coming from a family 3 generations into residential real estate, development, and construction entrepreneurs, my involvement in the Real Estate industry really began in 2004 with assisting and marketing for my mother (a long-time, prominent Calgary REALTOR®). My career led to partnership with her from 2014 to 2020, and now I am happy to be partnered with Brett Malenica - my husband, Rocky Mix, and our team-members!
I enjoy EVERY facette of being a REALTOR®, but especially working on the presentation media of homes for Sellers, and learning Buyers' needs, style, and lifestyle so I can help them envision the right property to be their HOME! The personal connections this job allows me to make with so many individuals and families along the way is a great bonus! I am knowledgeable and straight-forward, and bring energy, positivity, and unwaivering support so that my clients' experience buying and/or selling (which can sometimes be hard work and stressful) may be ENJOYABLE and REWARDING!
PERSONAL: Our careers in Real Estate are blended seamlessly into our lifeyle - this is not just work for us! Brett and I also enjoy working together on other investment-growth projects, but our PRIDE AND JOY is our 2 amazing sons!! Aside from my genuine love of homes, my personal interests include music, photography, adventure and sight-seeing (local and global!), and especially I enjoy time spent in the mountains and on water.
