Ladner, BC Real Estate News

 While Celebrate Staging tends to attract homes of a grand nature resulting in dramatic transformations, sometimes it is nice to do a little job now and then that is pure joy and stress free. This was the case with a darling little Rancher in Ladner. Russ Nugent , fellow AR member, and overall great guy, contacted us with a listing that had been on the market for 4 weeks with no interest. After two very successful outcomes of his previous listings he had us stage, one of which was featured in "Turning a Builder into a Staging Beleiver" , he knew that we would be the designers to call in and turn this little place around. While this 1300sqft rancher recently had a nice little makeover, boring was a slight understatement. Our immediate focus was the ugly brick fireplace. We chose a fabulo...

So, we finally did it. Had the ozone shock treatment ona home that needed something to get rid of odours. My first impression was- ugh, this ozone smell is worse. Then, a couple of days later, when it was dissipating, it started to smell sort of like fresh air- not too bad at all. I'm told it will take 3 days - so I'll wait and see. It seems to be in the clothes in the house and I'm wondering if now they will all need to be washed. " Ozone Harvey"  told me if they are hung out in the sun or put in the dryer they ozone smell will disappear. The jury is still out.  I would be interested to hear from anyone who has had this done. Any tips??

Ladner is an amazing place. Although it's cold today the first signs of Spring are showing. At about 5:30 pm every day, the  bald eagles gather at the foot of Ferry Road and Admiral Way, about 8-12 of them sitting on high branches of the trees in the nature reserve. They are loud and chatty as if they are having a conversation about their day! There are wild hares everywhere. Unfortunately they are often the food for the eagles. I am always so happy that I live in a place that has fresh air, clean water, lots of wildlife, nice people, a quaint historical village with a barber shop wit a red and white pole outside and next door, Sara's Ice Cream. There is some gorgeous real estate available and I think it is one of BC's best kept secrets! Happy Spring!

Holidays and Attractions Each spring Ladner hosts the Ladner Pioneer May Days (commonly referred to by residents simply as May Days), the longest-running festival in Delta, which is held on the weekend following the holiday commemorating Queen Victoria's birthday. It includes a parade, a carnival, and other local events. Every other Sunday during the summer months the major streets in the village are reserved for a farmer's market featuring live music, food, entertainment, fresh local produce and homemade arts and crafts. Vendors from as far away as Kelowna and Vancouver Island, along with many local farmers and artisans, set up stalls selling hand-crafted and locally grown products. This market has become a major draw to the community, attracting a few thousand out-of-town visitors eac...

History Like many areas around the Fraser River on what is now Greater Vancouver the area on the south side of the south arm of the Fraser was named for the original Europeans to settle there. First called Ladner's Landing, the area was settled by Thomas Ellis Ladner(1837-1922) and William Henry Ladner(1826-1907). They had travelled from their home in Cornwall, UK to pursue the gold rush in California and later on the Fraser River. Settling on the area of the Fraser River Delta either side of the Chilukthan Slough in 1868, both turned to farming and fishing. From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ladner%2C_British_Columbia

Location and FeaturesLadner is bound to the west by the Strait of Georgia, the south by Tsawwasen, to the east by North Delta, and north by the Fraser River. Ladner is bisected by Highway 17, which runs north-south from Highway 99 to the BC Ferries terminal. The term East Ladner is often applied to the portion of the community east of the highway. The major east-west artery is called Ladner Trunk Road - which, if traveled far enough east, turns into Highway 10. West of Arthur Drive, a north-south road that connects it with Tsawwassen, it is simply called 47A Avenue.River Road runs east from the north end of Highway 17 along the Fraser River into North Delta and Surrey. The area between Highway 17 and North Delta is referred to as Tilbury and is one of the major industrial centres of the...
