👋Meet the Neighbors👋
Alex Lavender @halifaxmortgage
1) What do you do?
I am a mortgage broker and I work to find borrowers the best lending options through a wide array of lenders completely free of cost.
2) What do you love the most about living in HRM?
I love the sense of community here. I spent 5 years living in downtown Toronto when I went to school and I feel when you live in a big city like that you really lose that community feeling.
3) What's your favourite neighbourhood and why?
I don’t know if you would call it a neighbourhood per se but my favourite area in HRM is around Lake Charles in Dartmouth. I love the fact that you can live on a beautiful lake and still only be a few minutes away from downtown. This is what makes HRM so special, there are so many lakes that someone can live on and still be so close to the city, I can’t think of very many cities in Canada that would have this opportunity.
4) Can you share an insider tip about your neighbourhood?
At Sullivan’s pond, there are white geese that have become iconic in the area. These geese use the crosswalk on the road to walk over to the other park. It's quite the sight if you have never seen it!
5) What local business should people check out if they are in the area?
You have to check out the Montreal Style Bagel place on Wyse road, these are hands down some of the best bagels I have ever had in my life.
