Great Deals For A Great Cause

     There are a number of reasons that I’m proud to have Royal LePage as my brokerage.  Sitting near the top of this list is the fact that I get to contribute to and be a part of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.  It has the distinction of being Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention and education programs. 

On Saturday, May 15th, Royal LePage offices all over the country will be participating in the foundation’s 2nd annual National Garage Sale for Shelter, with 100% of the proceeds going to help women and children living with abuse.  My office, located at 905 King Street West (at Strachan Ave) will be joining in.  The hours are from 8:00am – 2:00pm and we’ll be serving coffee, breakfast sandwiches, and cupcakes, as well as live music and raffles.

When Does The Spring Real Estate Market Begin? Photo

     The answer to the above question depends largely on who you’re asking.  Speaking as a Realtor I’d say that the spring market actually starts as early as January.  Granted, the number of listings and sales this early in the year aren’t going to match the level of activity we see in March, April, May,…  None-the-less there’s activity in January and it’s certainly the start of a market that will grow over the coming months.
