Young Eyes

As a child I used to get soooo excited and Christmas couldn't come fast enough. Now, as an adult, they come too fast, with extra work, shopping, money to spend. Didn't we just have Christmas? This is where I am thankful for grandchildren. They help me view things through their young ...

Islands instead of Tables

Today’s house interior designs look vastly different than in past decades.  This past year  I listed a house built in 1905.  The seller was a widow and she had been in the house for 60 years.  Her and her husband had raised their family there.  The kitchen was a large ...

Haunted Houses

The ghosts and goblins have been out in full force this past weekend with many a Halloween party. It’s dark and spooky out, and easy to be startled by some unknown sound. And then there are those old neighbourhood houses. There are rumours, "Is it really haunted?"  Maybe ...

Thanksgiving 2013

Growing up on the prairies, the four seasons were very distinct and fall became my favourite.  There was the harvest, thanksgiving with pumpkin pie, crisp air, and lots of leaves to jump in.   October is also the month of my mom's birthday and my parents' anniversary. October ...

32 Years Went Where?

I do know that time seems to be flying by faster each year, but the thing that drives that fact home the hardest is when my kids have a birthday!  When I look back at my life it just doesn’t seem possible that it is 32 years ago today that I had my first child.  I remember it so ...

The Waiting Game

Waiting for a baby to come tries one’s patience. I consider myself a patient person usually, but waiting for my third grandson to make his appearance in this world has thrown me off my game and turned me into an anxious, impatient creature I am not familiar with. I would think that this ...

Back on track

They say time flies. One of my New Year’s resolutions was to get back and write blogs regularly. Here it is April and I haven’t written one in 2012. What happened to the 1st quarter of the year? Well, Rick and I were in Kuaui, Hawaii for New Year’s and returned home on the ...

"I just love it when a plan comes together."

I think that phrase comes from a movie but I’m not sure. Regardless, it is true  for me. I recently had a friend become a client to buy a property that we both knew was a great deal—a work project mind you, but still a great deal. He had another investor friend who was ...

A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed

Selling your home can be stressful at the best of times but with single parents, I often see a bit more stress. Big decisions have to be made all on your own. A seller of mine was recently very excited to have an offer for her house come in and after negotiations, reached the stage of acceptance ...

Buying a property that is rented out, part 2

Last time I wrote about buying a house with a renter—on a lease—so now here's the story if the tenant rents month to month when you buy. The tenant can be given 60 days notice and receive a month’s rent to leave. This request must be 60 days of actual rent time, so ...
