Moving In The Right Direction

June 22, 2018

As a real estate business, helping people move is a big part of what we do. Before I joined the industry, I thought that real estate agents and property managers simply sold or leased houses.

A Total Waste

June 8, 2018

Yesterday, someone gave me a gift of chocolates. Lovely. I took it out of the gift bag. I removed the tissue paper. I opened the cardboard box. I unwrapped the cardboard and all the explainer cards.

A Cup of Sugar

June 1, 2018

We love neighbours. We aren’t talking about Ramsey Street. We are talking about Fletcher Street, Johnson Street, Lawson Street and Marvell Street. We are talking about all the people in those houses and the local shopkeepers, who make our community. Our neighbours in our towns are the most important social assets we have.

We need to cherish and celebrate those relationships because they are our vaccine against … Read more »
