Military Relocation

We have been in your shoes

Derek & Jenn of  the Maling Realty Team have been assisting members of the CAF, relocate to Fredericton and the Oromocto areas for 10 years. We have been a trusted name for CAF members who are moving to and from CFB Gagetown, our testimonials and reviews speak for themselves. In fact, over 75% of our total number of sales per year are with relocating members and their families. Since 2021, we have grown our team with Katherine Smith and Kasia Smith, offering the same professional experience while having spouses and family members that were/are CAF members.

We are both former Military having served 29 years between us. 14 of those years were between 2 postings within the Oromocto area. We know firsthand the feelings and emotions of going through this process. As parents of 3 boys, we had many questions during our relocation process such as...what are the schools like, what types of activities are offered in this area, what is the community like, etc...The answers to these questions were important in the area we chose to live.

It is important to find a REALTOR® that knows the area inside and out. We’re here to help you relocate and to help guide you through the ever-changing BGRS (Brookfield Relocation Services) policies. More information about the Relocation Program through the Government of Canada can be found here.

We may not wear the uniform anymore, but the values instilled from us from our time in the Canadian Armed Forces will always be engrained in us. It is the backbone of how we operate our business – empathy-based, while putting military families first. The Oromocto & Fredericton area will always be our home and we will continue to help those who serve – that is a promise from us to you.
