Random Thoughts for the Day: 1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer's history if you die. 2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you  realize you're wrong. 3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was  ...
We've all had those listings.  Cluttered, abandoned car in the driveway etc.  In times like these I use Photoshop to help clean up the pic before I publish it on my website.  My clients have always appreciated how great their homes look after a few minutes under the knife.  Now if you are wonderi...
  Does anyone have any case studies done about the benefit of a capital gains deferral in their town?    My government relations committee is looking for some examples to take to government and I'm just wondering if some other boards have done any work on this.  I know Victoria had done a case st...
  I was challenged the other day in my local church when the Pastor preached that after God created the heavens and the earth, on the seventh day He rested.  Now I'm not trying to start a theological discussion on if it actually was the seventh day, or six of our days or anything but rather focus...
  Here is a positive story for you all.  One of my RE/MAX colleagues, Denny Friesen received a floor call a few months ago from an elderly gentleman who wanted to sell his home.  After chatting with him on the phone for some time he drove over to the property to do a CMA.  What he found was a man...
  We had a solid day of meetings with all the BC Real Estate Boards Presidents.  There were many topics of interest, most of which involve the individual Boards and their members.  We did however, discuss the HST and it seems there isn't much we can do.  It's coming to BC regardless and  the gove...
  Monday and Tuesday are the president's meeting in Vancouver.  We will be discussing such issues as the HST, education and some other hot topics.  I have to be honest the last president's meeting wasn't very useful, so I am hoping this one will be a little better.  I'm not a big fan of having me...
  Ouch...I am still sore!  We had our 1st annual softball tourney with all the other real estate offices, the RCMP, and the Chilliwack Firefighters.  It was a great event to raise some money for charity, and spend some time with those who are involved in the city.  The RCMP team won the trophy, t...
  Is anyone else tired of all the Federal elections we are having in Canada?  The Liberals, even though the current polls are not in their favour, are wanting to push another election.  Jack Layton has so much crap coming out of his mouth I feel the need to grab him a handful of toilet paper ever...
  On July 1, 2010 British Columbia will be having to deal with the HST.  When reading this you may feel I'm totally against the HST, but I'm not.  However there needs to be some more concessions when it comes to Real Estate or there may be some poor consequences.  Below I will show how much of a ...
