March 2013 News

Easter Egg Hunts and the Easter Bunny are almost upon us!


The Spring Real Estate Market is here! There are many new "Sale" & "Sold" signs sprouting up around your neighbourhoods. Homes continue to sell despite the underwhelming media reports. There are always buyers entering into the market, sellers moving up or downsizing! When we bought our 1st home the mortgage rate was 14% - we were ready and we bought! Mortgage rates are at a historical low!


We have to thank you all again for your great support! Your referrals and repeat business have put us in the top 5 in the Team Category in our office again this month!
