streetsville neighbourhood values: YOUR IMPORTANT ROLE - 02/12/18 08:30 AM
I think sellers are of the opinion that once a realtor has listed thier home for sale, they can sit back and expect their home to sell without giving much thought to the fact that they have to be an active participant in the successful sale of their home.
Make Your Home Accessible
Having your home accessible to prospective Buyers as much as possible, is critical in the sale of your home.  Agents try to give as much notice as possible for requests to show your home, but there are times when last minute requests do occur.  Granting requests as much as … (24 comments)

streetsville neighbourhood values: Where Do Your Commission Dollars Go? - 01/23/18 07:21 AM
Commission StructureMost Sellers I encounter have no idea how the Selling Commission is structured or how it is allocated. Many consumers believe their agent's expenses are covered by their Brokerage, but in fact agents are responsible for ALL their expenses.
Here is an excerpt below from my booklet... A Real Estate Guide for Sellers .... where I explain to clients how the commission structure works.
Here is a short video explaining how commission is structured, what it covers, and how it is allocated.

streetsville neighbourhood values: CHOOSING THE RIGHT REALTOR.... PRICELESS - 12/28/16 06:58 AM
Selling a home is one of the most important financial decisions you will make, and working with the right realtor to market your home, is another important decision you will make to achieve the best possible benefit.
Ask a family member, friend or neighbour if they have used the services of a real estate agent recently and ask about the quality of service the agent provided.  Referrals are a good way to find a great agent.
If you don’t have that option available, here are some things to consider when selecting an agent to represent you.

streetsville neighbourhood values: Your MOST Powerful Tool - 12/19/16 08:47 AM
A few years ago I attended out annual ” sales kickoff" meeting, and having attended numerous meetings such as these in the past, thought it was going to be the typical “Rah-Rah” atmosphere, but I was pleasantly surprised. 
At the meeting was a keynote speaker from Nova Scotia named Eddie Lemoine. Eddie has the ability to resonate with his audience with a sincere and forthright manner in which he engages with people.  He is insightful, collaborative and a great motivator. Eddie is the author of a book entitled “Bring About What You Think About” a practical guide to attracting the life you desire.
I left the meeting with … (3 comments)

streetsville neighbourhood values: What Is Your Most Vivid Childhood Christmas Memory? - 12/14/16 03:36 PM
Back in the mid 1950's there was a TV show called "Beat The Clock" with Bud Collyer as the host and his Assistant Roxanne.  
All the rage that year for young girls like me was a popular doll from that show, called the "Roxanne" walker doll.. which is of course what I asked for from Santa..
Being the precocious child I was, I was in my parent's bedroom one day, I think playing hide and seek as I recall with my older brother.
I happened to look up on the shelf, and lo and behold... what was up there dressed in her pretty … (30 comments)

I came cross this on Facebook... it was something I saw, and posted last Christmas and since there are so many things which are annoying me, thought it would be appropriate because it really says it all.  
Hope this does not offent anyone, but I thought it was rather cute... and if it does, I apologize in advance..

streetsville neighbourhood values: I've Always Loved You Best Because ... - 11/15/16 08:56 PM
Erma Bombeck could always put a smile on my face with her comical quips about every day life as a parent.... This one is more serious and comes from the heart..(although there is a bit of humour at the beginning)  I had never seen this one before... so thought I would share it.
I’ve Always Loved You Best Because …
It is normal for children to want assurance that they are loved. Having all the warmth of the Berlin Wall, I have always admired women who can reach out to pat their children and not have them flinch.

streetsville neighbourhood values: If You Had Your Life To Live Over Again ... - 11/02/16 09:54 PM
Some of my favourite quotes from humourist, Erma Bombeck:
“Cleanliness is not next to Godliness. It isn't even in the same neighborhood. No one has ever gotten a religious experience out of removing burned-on cheese from the grill of the toaster oven.” 
“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.” 
“Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the 'Titanic' who waved off the dessert cart.” 
There is a thin line that separates laughter and pain, comedy and tragedy, … (4 comments)

streetsville neighbourhood values: All In A Day's Work... It Doesn't Get Any Better... - 10/08/16 10:54 PM
The flurry of activity in the real estate market is undeniably in full force.  In Southern Ontario it started in Toronto and the surrounding area of Missisauga a couple of years ago where we continue to have a shortage of invenotry. Along with the low interest rates that have prevailed for a number of years, it is keeping the market fuelled where Sellers are getting multiple offers in most situations.
I was rather surprising when, I listed a small two bedroom home in the Niagara Region in St. Catharines where typically the market was much slower. The property was built in 1940 … (6 comments)

streetsville neighbourhood values: Buying A Home With A Pool, Well, & Septic.. The Necessary Clauses - 10/03/16 10:38 PM
Are you considering purchasing a home that has a well?  How about one with a Septic?   Or even one with an in-ground pool? 
If the home you're thinking of purchasing has a well, it would be imperative to have a clause in your offer that either you, the Buyer, or the Seller will have the Well water tested to ensure it is potable.  In most cases, if you have a well, you will also have a Septic System. Another important clause to insert in your Offer would be one to show the Septic Systems has been inspected, and a certificate … (0 comments)

streetsville neighbourhood values: Keep Detailed Notes/Texts, They Could Exonerate You In A Legal Dispute - 10/01/16 01:03 AM
I'm not sure if its my administrative background, or merely that I am a very detailed oriented person, so I always try to dot my "i's" and cross my "t's" in the event I may need to refer back to the file sometime down the road in the event of a dispute, or worse, a legal action.
These notes ( and my memory of exact details) never came in more useful than when, a few years ago I was contacted by a buyer from out of town looking to purchase something in a very specific area of town. I met with her … (0 comments)
