Hey Alexia, You have to have fun with being a boomer.

Sunday Nov 17th, 2019

Share

Working an open house today, we constantly had to shout out over a very noisy intruder. For whatever reason, Alexia decided to play much louder music than what we needed and while we knew the key words to lower the volume, for some reason Alexia always wanted to get back to the louder setting.Despite my imagination running wild with thoughts of "OK Boomer"this Boomers solution was to unplug. Not sure how much you've heard about "OK Boomer" but in my case, I'm ok if... [read more]

Sixty is the new Sixty

Tuesday Sep 03rd, 2019

Good read shared to me thru my Accredited Senior Agent™ designation. Sixty Is The New Sixty by David Solie https://www.davidsolie.com/ One of the new mantras of aging in the twenty-first century is the refrain "sixty is the new forty." Maybe. Good health and an impressive array of lifestyle options certainly make many of today's sixty year olds look different compared to their parent's generation. But appearances can be misleading. In their rush to celebrate... [read more]

Been a crazy summer so far and a real grateful experience for me in transitioning so many people from so many places to so many other places. I had in the past thought that I may have been in the real estate business but that's not where I get my smiles. I get my smiles from changing lives. I've helped a couple with their retirement dream and supported them with informative resources and connections that allowed them to understand the how to of realizing their dream of living on the...

Wow, can't believe 2018 is now history...but what great history for me it's been!

Yes, I know that in my headline "Buy" should be "by" but here is my point. Recently had someone come up to me and say -"hey, I knew I would see ya here and thought it would be a good time to ask you a couple of real estate questions" They went on to share what they had just done- sold a place and bought a place and not being familiar with the real estate world, wanted my thoughts on what they had done.

Neighbourhoods, being a kid and building memories

Wednesday Nov 02nd, 2016

Share

I know I have fond memories of where I grew up. I treasure the school yard where we played the game called "British Bulldog". Still don't understand why the name is what it is but that's not important, its just the memory of the game and fun times of being young that is etched in my mind. I could never understand the empty nest neighbours who got a little upset when the football hit the hydro lines that ran up and down the streets. I dunno, maybe the football hitting the...

Who was that Cleaning Guy? (Published and transferred over from my previous website)

Saturday Oct 29th, 2016

I do stick to a pretty rigid process in marketing a property and part of that rigidity is related to my pre-sell program. It works so I stick with it. Most often it takes a little more time and more often than not, the neighbours seem to see a lot of me over a short period of time.   I've recently spent a couple of weeks prepping a house for market. Nothing too too major but just little stuff that as homeowners we don't have time for in our day to day life. It's just... [read more]

Omg, had people move into a house and 4 days later the waste lines in the house backed up.
