I moved across town to Central Coquitlam from Port Moody about 6 months ago. I never thought I'd end up over on this side of Coquitlam because before I lived here, it seemed like a bit of an unappealing part of town, aesthetically speaking. In Port Moody, I got used to being a 2 minute walk to th...

"We're going to try to sell again in the Spring", or "We're waiting for the Spring, when the market picks up". etc. When I dig and ask questions about why so many people saying the same thin...

It's hard to spot, but there's a little restaraunt in Central Coquitlam on the corner of Austin & Marmont that, once you eat there, you'll keep going back for more. It's called Soup Plus, a little sandwich shop tucked away in a corner. Once you enter the place, you'll hear classical music playing...

  As I study the statistics for Central Coquitlam & Coquitlam West, I realize that, although the area isn't as visually appealing as somewhere like Port Moody, or the other side of Coquitlam, more home buyers are buying on this side of Coquitlam than anywhere else in Coquitlam.
