keller williams: Water in your basement is not a good idea - 11/30/16 07:11 AM
Water infiltration in your basement is not something you can ignore. When you first notice an issue, make sure you remedy the issue as soon as possible. This might sound costly, but if you wait it will cost you more in the long run. Fixing it at the first sign is the best way to handle it. 
 Turning a blind eye on the situation will NOT make it go away. Sometimes the problem can be a quick fix, so why not take care of it before it's too late. Buyers do expect a clean, dry basement. Potential buyers might be turned off if they … (0 comments)

keller williams: Why I went back to Keller Williams - 11/09/16 01:12 AM
A few months ago, our company/franchise (Keller Williams Ottawa Realty) was acquired by a National brand. It was a shock and a surprise for all of us at KWO. We were close to 300 agents and from one day to the next were switched brands. 
The new brand was fine, no issues, great brand, great tools, same management team, and even a few new faces that were very professional and good at what they do. What happens when you have been working at a Brokerage for almost 8 years and then things change? 
What I did was sit back, continue running my Real … (2 comments)

keller williams: Clean your driveway in winter - 02/23/16 12:09 AM
How difficult can it be to clean your driveway when you are selling your home. I was showing a house to a client the other day and the homeowner had not cleared his driveway from the snowstorm. We had 51.2cm (or 20 inches) of snow come down on our city. A new record for snowfall was broken for the most amount of snow. Let's just say that we did not start off on the right foot for our showing. Our boots were full of snow because we had to jump the snowbank, walking through the snow and finally getting to the … (0 comments)
