The Canadian ReDesigners Association (CRDA) developed a NEW LOGO over the past few months, as well as launching a new website.  I much prefer these colours to the old one (washed out mauve).  We chose red to represent a Canadian entity and also to reflect that much needed pop of colour for real e...
Our friends south of the border may find this hard to believe and hard to swallow if their real estate situation has not yet seen an upswing in sales.  But apparently the Toronto market is HOT, as some of my Realtor colleagues will agree.  This story appeared on the front page of The Toronto Star...

Going GREEN is very popular these days, with everyone having a different spin on it.  Interestingly enough, when I started my business in 2004 I was very GREEN (and I don't just mean "new at it").  My website, business cards, brochures and promo cards were a lovely shade of sage GREEN.  When I lo...
