Who Do You Know?

October 16th, 2015

It seems these days we all know of someone who is making the “transitional move” from their long time family home to a lifestyle that is a little more carefree.

Perhaps you know of someone – maybe even a family member – who has been considering making that move?  No longer do they have an interest in gardening or snow removal or replacing windows and kitchens and bathrooms and such.

The difficulty is finding a suitable home that will give them some of what they are used to (like space).  Most condominiums are just too much of an adjustment to make from the size of their family home.

I believe that this beautiful condo would be a wonderful solution for anyone considering making that move!  It is spacious, bright and airy and has a terrific sized condo that is large enough for SOME gardening and certainly a wonderful space for entertaining outside!  It is the best of both worlds!

1320 Islington Ave #2007 Barclay Terrace (7)

Fabulous spacious suite at Barclay Terrace

Barclay Terrace is a very elegant building that is superbly maintained and has so many amenities!  The ideal community for those who like to be involved in social activities.  There is a recreation director to organize pub nights, poker games, bridge, group exercise, swimming, movie nights, Ladies Club, organized trips to theatre etc…so you can be as active socially as you want to be!

If you know of anyone who might be interested in this breathtaking suite – please pass along the video and details to someone you know who might love this Barclay Terrace suite…..GO TO…..www.barclayterracecondoforsale.com

Please feel free to call or email me with ANY questions about the current real estate market or questions about the “Senior Transitional Move”.  Always happy to help!  At the HeartNHomeTeam…YOUR HOME IS WHERE OUR HEART IS

It Feels SO nice to be appreciated!

April 27th, 2015

I was very pleased to receive this lovely gift from the Mississauga Real Estate Board! I have enjoyed serving as a Director at the Mississauga Real Estate Board for many years.
I began on the “Communication” Committee and then was named as Chair of Communication for the Mississauga Real Estate Board. As Education for All Realtors is a passion of mine, I was Chair of Education for many years which I enjoyed immensely.
The Mississauga Real Estate Board serves both the Realtors of Mississauga and the Communities that the Realtors represent by participating in fund raising efforts, educating our Mississauga Realtors so that they can better serve our Mississauga clients, by lobbying on behalf of our Mississauga citizens for issues such as “second suites” and lobbying against issues such as a second land transfer tax. The latter was a huge success and did indeed influence City Council to NOT implement this extra tax.
Support your Members of the Mississauga Real Estate Board (MREB)…they work hard for you to ensure a smooth, professional and successful real estate experience for you!
Thank you to the Board for this gift it really does feel SO nice to be appreciated!

Why Do We Stage Homes?

March 27th, 2015

As a Realtor…sometimes it is a difficult task to discuss with a homeowner that the placement of their furniture is not the best, that the colour of their walls or wallpaper just will not suit many buyers or that the custom made balloon drapes tend to date their house.
These are all items that the homeowner has lovingly picked colours and fabrics that they love, shopped for hours and days to find JUST the perfect picture for the living room and now me, their Realtor comes along and says “that must go”.
It is not a task that I like to do…SO I leave it up to the Professional Stager!
Scaredy Cat and a chicken – OK yes you can call me that but I hate to hurt people’s feelings and is in every other aspect of my business, I believe that there are specialists in every field who perfect their own particular skills to best serve my clients.
The goal of staging is to “de-personalize” a house so that the prospective buyer can see her or himself and their family actually living in the house. When family photos or a lot of furniture are everywhere that is difficult to do.
We want to appeal to as many people as possible so neutral colours will appeal to the majority of people.
De-clutter, de-clutter is the cry of the staging artist. The reason of course is that less is more. Less stuff equals more space!
At The HeartNHome Team, we offer a complimentary staging consultation to our clients as we feel that it will absolutely bring more buyers, and also more money in the shortest time possible so as not to inconvenience our clients.
After all isn’t that what MOST sellers are wanting?
Here is a staging scene that we most recently arranged and we are, as always delighted with the finished product!
