Has this ever happened to you? You’re looking for a contractor or other professional for a home project or repair. You search on Google and find hundreds of names. You spend hours considering them. Yet, you never feel confident that the people you find will be qualified, experienced and reputable. That’s not an unusual scenario. In the end, most people email a friend or neighbour, and ask, “Do you know a good contractor?” Often that approach works best! In fact, a growing number of my clients come my way by referral too. I deeply appreciate all those people who recommend...Read More
What I enjoy most about working with my clients is being by their side – as their real estate professional – while their families grow and change over the years. That’s why I don’t say “thank you and goodbye” when a transaction is complete. I stay in touch with my clients in the months and years in between transactions. I want to be available to them if they need me… for advice… a question… a contractor recommendation… or anything else real estate related. Of course, I also want to be able to provide the best service when they’re ready to...Read More
With all the news about interest rates, housing sales, and forecasts, you might think that the real estate market is a bewildering place. In some ways, you’d be right! The market is certainly active. There’s a lot going on. But, it would be a mistake to let all that noise discourage you from making a move. If the timing is right, and you’re ready to upsize or downsize – or simply move to a neighbourhood that better suits the lifestyle you want – you should at least get the information you need to make the best decision. I can help....Read More

Imagine you’re at a dinner party and someone brings up the topic of plumbing. They’ve had some difficulties with hot water pipes during a renovation and they’re telling the story of what happened. Then, another person in the room says, “I have a friend who’s a plumber. I always call him with my plumbing questions.” Wouldn’t that make you think it would be nice to have a friend who’s a plumber that you could call? (In fact, you might just have that kind of a friend!) Well, for valued clients like you, I try to be the kind of friend...Read More

You’ve probably heard the expression “April showers bring May flowers”. That expression says a lot about how some things in life work. Sometimes we have to endure some rain before we can enjoy the sunshine and flowers. Take my world for example. Every week I see people out on their own trying to find a new home. Some of them experience a lot of frustration and disappointment as they try to make sense of the market, search for the right properties to see, and then try to negotiate the best deal. As a professional real estate sales associate, I understand...Read More
