As my winter giveaway series draws to a close, I can’t help but reflect on what I’ve learned and the memories that I’ve shared with so many amazing small, local businesses these past few months. In such trying times, it’s been an honour to get to connect with and work with these small business owners, and bring joy to them as well as other community members as well.

The past few weeks have been cold!
Winter may have come in like a lamb in Southern Ontario, but it has certainly made its presence known these past few weeks. I think many of us are all ready for longer, warmer, sunnier days when spring arrives.
We’re all cooped up in our homes still (for the most part), even those who are thinking about selling our homes in 2021. You might be wondering how you can increase the value of your home before you put it on the market. You don’t want to spend unnecessary money on frivolous upgrades—so where do you start? How do you get the most value out of home renovations when it’s time to sell? You’ve come to the right place!
When it comes to selling your home (and even just living comfortably in your home), we can all agree that clutter is never appealing. It can make your house feel messy even when it is clean, crowded and yes, even smaller in size, which can be unwelcoming to potential buyers that want to be able to envision themselves living in a home before they buy it.
You did it! You’ve finally picked up the keys, the boxes have arrived, and you are home at last, whether you are renting a home or have just purchased and closed on your dream home. You are all moved in.
Are you hoping to finally get that dream home in 2021? Sometimes saving for a down payment can be an overwhelming task. Luckily, there are many seemingly small ways to save that can add up quickly to get you closer to that down payment. If you’re looking to get started on some larger money saving tips, certainly check out Part One down below for some great ideas!
Feeling ready to take the leap into buying a home in 2021?
With so many of my clients looking for a much-needed fresh start with the fast-approaching New Year, a common New Year’s resolution may be to find a new home in 2021. Nothing creates a better fresh start than a new environment, and a new home! But should you rent a home, or should you buy a home in 2021?
With the new year coming quickly, many of us are looking ahead to brighter days and a fresh start, and starting to evaluate our living situations and wondering what to do next. Should you take the plunge and buy a home in 2021, or find a home to rent that is aligned with your current needs? If you need a little help deciding, read on for part one in a two-part series to help you get started.
With the holiday season in full swing, and the holidays themselves quite literally around the corner, many of us are hoping to get creative and find fun activities to do with the family. The 2020 holiday season may appear different than previous years, but there are still so many ways to enjoy the magic of the season, safely, from our own homes.
