March Madness in Toronto!

Hello Friend

I'm glad you could join us! How is it already March, and yet we're all so over 2020 already? It's been a crazy year so far, and the Real Estate Market is no exception - we've seen Buyers swarming open houses and properties with 15 offers with a foot of snow on the ground, a total slow down with a new pandemic sweeping the media, and an additional rate cut (as of March 13) of 0.5% to the Bank of Canada's overnight rate. Unfortunately for my clients, friends and family (though good to be on the safe side) - the National Home Show that we were all so excited for has been cancelled by it's organizers.

So much information, so little time! I put together a video with a summary of everything for you below. Want more info? Send me an email!

3 Tips for Quicker Spring Cleaning


With the first day of Spring just over the horizon, it’s time for—you guessed it—spring cleaning! Whether you love or hate this annual chore, here are the top tips for getting it done in record time.

Make a Plan
A surefire way to speed things up is to start with a proper plan. Create a checklist so that you a) know when each thing is done, b) can plan the work around your schedule, and c) get the satisfaction of checking things off.

Declutter First
Some people like to declutter as they go, but it’s best to get this done first. If there’s less in your home, there’s less to clean.

Set Yourself Up for Success
Use spring cleaning as a time to set cleaning habits for the year ahead. Use your spring cleaning plan or checklist to define quick tasks you can complete regularly throughout the year and lessen the workload for next year’s spring clean.
