Have you got clutter?  A linen closet that takes a full-on tackle to close?  A cabinet under the kitchen sink that looks like a product testing lab for household cleaning products?  Bin upon bin in the basement that may or may not contain your grade 7 report card? Well then, it might be time to m...

Did you consider location before your flip flopped?  I didn't think so. When you first saw the house on MLS, it was probably too good to be true.  Or rather, it was so bad it was good.  But here's the thing: Even when you flip houses, the 3 most important things in real estate are still location,...

A couple of nights ago, I was out for dinner with my girlfriends, and though the evening felt like a group hug for my soul, I also learned some important lessons about my business. 1. "I was afraid to ask you to help me find a home because I know you're so busy and I didn't want to burden you." W...

I have a love/hate relationship with January.  I love the feeling of renewal and fresh beginnings that comes with the first month of the year.  But by the last week of this torturous, outrageously long, cold, dark, icy month, I'VE HAD IT! And so it was that last night I dragged my sorry, grumpy s...
