The True North Strong and Free!

The True North Strong and Free!

What a country we live in EH!

But, let me tell you a story of my desires and aspirations in 2015, perhaps it will give you hope for 2016!

Was I Ever Scrooged!

Was I Ever Scrooged!

So as I mentioned in my last blog, December is typically a slow month. I don’t know what it is but this December has been very interesting! I get a call to show one of my listings and then another call for another listing I have and finally a third call for one more that I have…  that was Saturday and all set to go for Sunday. I began to think Merry Christmas, holy frosty and happy holidays, yes this could be good for all. Jingle bells all the way. Then, Sunday morning came around…
