realtor: Sometimes you need a little Photoshop... - 10/29/09 11:24 AM
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 wondering if the Real Estate Manual is against such practise:
"A licensee must not publish real estate advertising that the licensee knows contains a false statement or misrepresentation concerning real estate, a trade in real estate or the provision of real estate services" 
However the manual continues: "While … (4 comments)

realtor: Capital Gains Deferral in Canada - 10/25/09 06:05 AM
  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 study but they focused more on the high cost of commercial properties and hopefully a deferral would bring those prices down to a more affordable level. 
  I'm looking for a case study that shows the decaying downtown city cores that are happening because owners don't want to … (0 comments)

realtor: Compulsive, over-worker much? - 10/23/09 10:05 AM
  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 on the fact that God rested.  Now being God, He doesn't get tired, He doesn't need to kick up his feet and watch the Oilers dominate the Canucks on a Saturday night.  So why did He rest?  Maybe it was to provide us with … (2 comments)

realtor: Chilliwack Realtor - 09/25/09 08:35 AM
  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 who was "trapped" in his own home.  Aparently over some time this man's home had been overrun with drug dealers and squatters and because of his age and small stature was unable to fend them off. 
  Denny took a look at … (0 comments)

  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, they were an excellent team and played really well.  Our RE/MAX team did fine, we won 2 out of 3 games.  With that success comes a little pain, and that pain is in my legs, butt, arms and shoulders.
  So if you come into my office … (2 comments)

realtor: Chilliwack Real Estate and the HST - 09/05/09 12:24 PM
  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 burden the HST will be for those who dare to purchase a New Construction property after July 1st. 
  One question that comes to mind.  If new construction decrease their prices to help off set the extra cost for consumers wouldn't previously owned … (0 comments)
