It gets frustrating when so much time, money and effort is just wasted when a side doesn't know when they are conquered. A line from Gladiator, yes. Still reigns true. People will always go down battling, kicking and screaming for what they believe in (even though they know deep down that the odds are against them). Is it faith? Is it the fear of being a coward? Is it facing the same re Read more →

Sometimes the little things in life are the toughest to let go. We struggle with releasing ourselves from the little tidbits of life that in the end will not mean very much in the whole scope of things, but for us as individuals, is constantly top of mind for that period of time. Whether it's the weather, people or an event or project that we are dealing with - Why do the little things Read more →

Driving pet peeve... Just because you are in the Fast Lane (The Left lane known as the passing lane) and going 110 km per hour does not mean that you are going fast or the speed of traffic. I'll get into my theory of how each lane of a 3 lane highway is similar to the Upper class, Middle class and Lower class of our economy, but that is for another day and time. I know people that admi Read more →

Being in control. What exactly is that? Does it make things run smoother? Does one understand things better? Who or what would you prefer to be in charge? Someone or an organization who is detailed to the bone or one that is loose, free wheeling and a bit unorganized. For the most part, we have all been in both situations and had to figure out how we as individuals or part of a group Read more →

Nothing new here. Just like an Economics Graph showing Supply and Demand or production and labour costs. Make a graph for the young people who are getting older, taller coupled with an elevation in attitude. Again, nothing you here, but you deal with it! Testing patience is far from old to the learning curve, it's just that there is no text book for it and if there were there would be a Read more →

It's where we all go when times are tough or we are desperate for help. No matter what faith we are, the call for help to a figure above seems to be the norm. I ask, why only in times of need? Why not during times of success than failure? Being thankful for what we have or what we have accomplished should also come with a nod to the sky. Those who run to their "d" only in times of need Read more →

When things aren’t going your way things seem to feel different. You manage to get by somehow. That’s the key. You manage to get by. Appreciation feels different. It takes on the feeling that you are happier and grateful when you have less or when things aren’t in your favour. Not what I expected. This crazy fast paced world. Seems quite awesome when you are grounded Read more →

An old Basketball term used to describe a play to free up a player for an open/clearer shot at the basket. In business we need to learn to handle objection, lies, disappointment etc. and have them just roll off us and face the next challenge. Easier said than done. Somethings last longer than others. But should they? I say Yes. It should affect you differently when you have put more ti Read more →

I was talking to my Broker last evening (she’s my boss) and she said to me “well, you know, you’re really good at divorce sales. You administer so many of them year after year in the office; more that most. I’m sure you’ll make it work.” What? I’m the divorce girl of the office now? How did that happen? I guess I have “done Read more →

Found myself in an awkward state this week. We all have to do things that we don't like or want to  (I know,  Life Sucks, First World Problems), but going to see a tenant of a client didn't sit well. You always like things to go smooth, but to get things done and to move on there are some hurdles. Nothing is easy or everyone would do it. The encounter went basically how most of Read more →

Nothing better than a long ride home in bad weather and you're listening to talk radio and all you hear are the host of the show and his guests talking over each other. Like Really? Too bad they can't hear themselves. When they actually don't care and hear what the other person is saying because all they care about is giving their 2 cents on some lame ass topic and can't wait for the ot Read more →

Inventory. It’s a word that a lot of Realtors are using these days. When I read blogs and posts about Real Estate they are normally littered with the two most popular words lately….low inventory. What does low inventory actually mean to you as a consumer? What is a Seller’s market? Here are a couple of points to consider as a Buyer. Inventory is probably Read more →

I remember when I was a kid, a little young for heading out on my own or with friends, but right at the cusp. I always wished I could go to the neighbourhood Ice Cream Social. Just the name of the Event intrigued me and I wanted to go. Go and be social. Chill with the older crowd. Be, you know, cool. I haven't heard that phrase in a while, but it came to my mind when pondering soci Read more →

When I mention bridge financing to people they almost always have the same reaction, “Why would I bridge when I can line up my closing dates and save myself all that time and expense?” So often once I explain the reasons why Client’s should bridge they realize that it is, in fact, the best way to do business. Bridge financing basically allows you to (in reality) own Read more →

A little frustration from my world of Real Estate. Does someone use a Realtor to buy a home in City where that Realtor is not from?  I'm not talking about any technicalities like the old Ancaster and Dundas or Burlington and Oakville for example, but If you are buying a home in Scarborough and the your Realtor works in Hamilton - are you as a Buyer, being taken care of and well repr Read more →
