Moose Monday - The Hungry Moose in Saint-Sauveur, Quebec  After heading to Saint-Sauveur to grab a bite to eat prior to returning to Montreal from our getwaway in Val David (Feels Like Montana in Val David, Quebec), I ran across some interesting moose... At a corner of a street on Main Street (rue Principale) in Saint-Sauveur was a restaurant very decorated for the holidays and a subject just calling attention to be photographed for an apparence in today's Moose Monday.    Now, how often do you see a hungry moose carrying a fork with them? :)  This was my first moose with fork sighting!  :) As I mentioned this restaurant was well decorated for the holidays.  In the balcony, they were deer, an angel, a snowman and guess what? The name of the restaurant in Saint-Sauveur is very easy to re...

Feels Like Montana in Val David, Quebec I was lucky to get to spend 4 days of the first week of 2011 with my brother and nieces in the beautiful Laurentians (North of Montreal).   We rented a chalet by the lake at Val David, a beautiful quaint town that reminded me of the peaceful winter setting also found in Montana. Here are some of the photos I took to share with you. The sunset view of the frozen lake from the chalet.   The chalet with lots of amenities including sauna and hot tub (also included was a snowman!).   A beautiful day was spent downhill skiiing at nearby Mont Blanc. Another day was spent snow showing. Here are some icicles along the way. This was the view (credit goes to my niece Aline who took the photo) of the village from the highest point we reached that day.  I was ...

Moose Monday - Moose Vision from Saint-Adele, Quebec The following photo was taken on the grounds of the Hotel Le Chantecler.     Le Chantecler is a very good ski resort in the winter time.   The Hotel Le Chantecler is great for the apres-ski and it is also a very good spot to have brunch on weekends with family and friends.  Here is a view of the Hotel Chanteclerc on a beautiful fall day (a reminder that today is the last day of fall). For more on this popular hotel and resort.  You can check out www.lechantecler.com for more info (in French or in English). Happy Moose Monday on this last day of fall!

Did you here about the Prospectsweb software that is now a web based , well I'm using it since a few years, always being up-date getting better and better. The company connect directly to my real estate board so I don't have enter all the info and up-date it. Interesting enougth it always keeps all documents, faxes and e-mails attached to the client file and the listing. I can print lable directly from the software, but what is most interesting is being able to do a market analysis with comparables. It a great help for follow-ups, area where we aren't always great when busy. "Match" is used to send properties to prospect buyers, only properties that correspond to the criterias you predetermined that you joined to a buyer's profile. All properties sent to your clients are in the contacts...

I'm curious, I would like to know what kind of course an person must take to be an agent in the US. Don't worry I'm not coming over to take all your listing, I'm from Quebec, Canada. Do you need a college degree or High School is the minimum requirement. Is it different from one State to the other or an agent can move to a different State and continue doing real estate? Here we cannot, you need to pass new exams from one province (state) to an other. For now we are required to have a High School degree but it's going to be a college degree very soon! For our contrats we need to use the Government document to sale any residential property, being a condo, a cabin or a bungalow. Land and commercial properties don't apply. Do you have any form that you need to use?
