This is perfect timing for me to respond to "The Active Rain and WebsiteBox Challenge" as I am a real estate broker in Montreal, Canada working with wordpress right now. Although I am a big wordpress fan, here are three things or more that "my dream website" would have. 1) Having a background in design, I always appreciate a beautiful and well executed website, it's a potential client's first impression! Having a flexible, gorgeous, gallery slider to play with on my home page that displays photos and videos in large formats is essential. The gallery/slider should upload and automatically adjust the pixel ratio of your images without you having to manipulate them first. 2) Fully customizable widgets that give your pages/post/homepage full flexibility. These widgets could be set to displa...

Would You Filter Buyer Comments For Your Seller? Some Background: Your sellers love their home. They built it 10 years ago! And now, reluctantly, want to sell it.Along comes a buyer family who just don't feel the same way about the home that love built.And, they tell me! The Visit: One of the buyers walking through the home trash-talked it through almost every space.Another family member critically assessed every minor flaw,and another criticized the ugly home next door. When the buyers went home, someone called their agent, who's existence I was unaware of, who told the buyers it was 15% overpriced. I asked for feedback and received an email listing all the above, except in vivid detail. Information Sharing: When I took the listing, I 1. wrote out a repair, maintenance list addressing ...

Performance Anxiety OR Eco-responsibility? I am warming up to the fact that I shall choose one over the other soon.   2011 Green Ecoped Scooter Available in Montreal A new version of the Ecoped electric scooter is selling in Montreal at Walmart. I've often thought of putting my car up on blocks and running around town on my scooter. Since becoming a real estate broker my road mileage has decreased from 40,000-60,000 kilometers to 12,000-15,000 per year! In my last career posting as Director, Strategic Services Eastern Canada, I drove frequently all over Montreal and East to Rimouski, West to Ottawa. I have now scaled that down to 3 or 4 close neighbourhoods here on Montreal island. My only hesitation is showing up at a client's home on my scooter while I feel most brokers STILL believe ...

It's Pothole Season in Montreal! Yesterday, on my way back home, the light turned green, I accelerated past the intersection and then as my car reached the speed limit, BANG!!!!! I hit a pothole deep enough to crush my tire and slap the wheel rim! Potholes are returning to us from their long winter hibernation. Oh, no problem, I did not suffer whiplash, I did call my dentist as I'm sure my fillings were loosened. And get mad? Nah, those cute little black holes in the road are back with us once again. Oh, how I missed them. Life in the snow and ice was getting all too familiar and serene.   The heralded and long-awaited pothole season is upon us here in Montreal. Just how is a pothole brought out of hibernation?   In Montreal, this season runs from the first thaw when roads are cleared o...

You Don't Like The Kitchen! Are You Serious?   Helping buyers in Montreal I'm often stymied when buyers express distaste at interior features while ignoring more big picture items. Big picture items such as: location, house, bedrooms, number of bathrooms, operating systems and layout. AND THEN, out comes the fussiness regarding the kitchen cabinets, floor tiles, countertops appliances. OR Maybe it's a bathroom to renovate OR painting and flooring. Result? Some Montreal buyers actually drop the house and move on to another one! If only proper perspective was provided to them by their agent on how hard it is to find a house that, with some reasonable modifications and trade-offs, would make it a wonderful home.   This BBC trailer clip exhibits how incredibly fussy and silly we get living ...
Visual Analogy To Buying And Selling Real Estate in Montreal, Almost? It's been some time since I've gone in the woods and hills to cross country ski. This weekend we found the moment to get back to fun in the woods. After looking at a video I recorded to show friends what they're missing I thought how clients might feel when buying or selling their first home. Going through the necessary twists and turns, while trying to stay upright managing finances and regular life might make it seem to look like this at times. Keeping your head up, paying attention to detail and your goals will keep you on the path and out of the trees! Enjoy!

What McDonald's Chicken McNuggets Really Contain OR What Will Get You More Money Selling Your Home An excerpt of the article published in The Montreal Gazette - Fri, 14 Jan 2011 It seems Melodi Dushane of Toledo, Ohio, wasn't concerned about dimethyl polysiloxane or tertiary butylhydroquinone in her Chicken McNuggets, or about the allegation that they were made of 56 per cent corn. Even though it was 6:30 a.m., she had to have them. When told the nuggets were not available at that time of the morning, Dushane went into a frenzy and began to pummel the drive-thru employee before smashing a window with a beer bottle and driving off. Andrew knew he had a drainage issue in his roof pipe drain when there were flood rains. When the drains backed up there would be small water leaks in to the b...
