Seventh & Acre was dreamed up in 2012 over cappuccini at deVille Coffee in the now-demolished Art Central building on Seventh Avenue in downtown Calgary. Since then, caffeine-fueled chats have turned into a portfolio of amazing rental properties for Albertans in Calgary, Red Deer, and Hinton. To peruse these suites, click here.

Caitlynn Bailey-Cummings

Caitlynn manages Seventh & Acre’s marketing by day and writes novels by night. She is a passionate community-builder with experience in the real estate, arts, and post-secondary sectors. She has a BA from the University of Alberta, a master’s degree from the University of Edinburgh, and an ardent love for Calgary few former Edmontonians would admit to. It is her mission to share this enthusiasm for everything YYC with Seventh & Acre’s tenants. Get in touch with Caitlynn at [email protected].

Derek Latham

Derek is one half of the property management team of Seventh & Acre’s Red Deer portfolio. He met his wife Shari in Brooks, AB. Their first tenant experience involved an escaped mental patient and they’ve been in love with property management ever since. Derek’s main interests are family and friends, but his passion is helping those less fortunate and offering his time to The Mustard Seed, a local Christian-based homeless shelter. He is also taking an engineering course through NAIT in hopes of becoming a Building Operator. Get in touch with Derek at [email protected].


Shari Sarmiento

Shari is the other half of the property management team of Seventh & Acre’s Red Deer portfolio. Shari completed her B.A. in the Philippines and decided to spend two years abroad in Dubai before she came to Canada in 2016. Here she met her husband Derek, discovered her love of property management, and together are raising their two-year-old son. “It’s true about the mental patient,” she says, “but don’t worry, we have come a long way since then and pride ourselves in finding quality tenants.” Get in touch with Shari at [email protected].
