I believe that the POWER OF VIDEO is giving people the ability to build a realationship with you before they even meet you.
You do it by communicating clearly with them the type of person you are, how you approach your business, your family, your life. People will get to know you, and decide weather you’re a person they can trust.
Keeping is easy and still mainaining a decent quality has been the goal since my first video in 2008.
Here is the setup I’m using in January 2013.
Let me know what you think, if you have any way to improve this.
I was in Toronto today. So much of my real estate business is tied to exposing the Northumberland area to Toronto and GTA real estate agents. In real estate terms “GTA” covers … Read the rest of this entry »
At the start of each year, partly because the real estate market is slow right now and there really isn’t much to talk about, but also because it’s good to look back ….. but for whatever reason – in January I like to summarize the year we just completed. Then look at that year measured against the previous years. It gives us an idea about how things look a bigger picture. Too often, because of the busy lives we lead, we only see what’s in front of us, and that can be a bit misleading.
So here is some general real estate information that you may find useful.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on where things are going.
The fall has been interesting – both the weather and the real estate market have been warmer than normal FEATURE BUSINESS For the first time in years we are seeing SALES in the real estate market hold steady and even increase at a time when we would normally see a falling off. And at the same time the INVENTORY is coming down as would be normal. The result of this situation is the a stronger real estate market than would be expected.
Often, this time of year property owners who may have tried to sell their homes unsuccessfully will withdraw from the real estate market to "Wait till things pick up in the spring". This year that could be a tactical mistake. This year the demand for real estate seems to be holding it's own while the supply is decreasing, this could create a more favourable opportunity for sellers than we'd normally see for this season.
Home owners who wish to sell may be able to take advantage of this more balanced market either by enjoying an increase in price or simply a quicker selling process.
Now too ... buyers need to understand the cycle in order to be sure they are making the best decisions they can.
It's times like this that having a relationship with a Real Estate agent who is keenly aware of the subtle market movements is really to your advantage.
Let me know how I can help.

So many people buying real estate in the Lakeshore area have either arrived or are approaching the years in their lives when they will have the luxury of travel. The dream of spending winters in warmer places has kept many at the grindstone, dedicated to working into a position that allows it.
But leaving your home vacant and unattended for an extended period for any reason can be a real concern. Property and home insurance companies insist on real estate owners being in or at least on their property on a regular basis. And often this can be a challenge for folks. But not any more ….

Knowing that your home is being watched over while you’re away from it for any reason will take away alot of worry and help you relax.
In this part of Northumberland, be it Cobourg Port Hope or in the countryside, property owners are blessed with a lifestyle most families only dream about And so much of that is based on …
the Trains. As our great country was being settled, new settlers were always looking for homes and real estate along trade and transportation routes. Cobourg and Port Hope were doubly blessed because of the great waterfront these communities have Cobourg’s harbour had made the town hub long before the trains came through.
Today both these wonderful assests have evovled into fantastic reasons to own real estate in Cobourg. The harbour has become the center of waterfront recreation and the trains have become the artery that takes people into Toronto.
Getting on the train on a Cobourg morning will get you to Union Station an hour later .. you can make the same trip homeward at the end of the day. Follow your professional calling during the day and live the good life when you get home. Give your family the life you work so hard for.
