It is hard to believe we are well into the Summer. It is so nice to be reaching for sandals instead of snow boots!
The Spring market was very strong and despite what the media would have you have think we have experienced the typical summer slowdown in the market. People’s minds seem to shift to being outdoors, spending time with children and grandchildren and taking some much needed down time. Homes are still selling for a good price but the feverish pitch seems to have changed. This often creates a good opportunity for buyers to acquire a house without having to enter into a bidding war.
We are really excited to be working on the Eighth Annual Fight for Independence taking place September 28th at Steam Whistle Brewery. Many of you know this is a boxing fundraiser for Nazareth House and SickKids. Last year tickets sold out and we raised over $350,000. This year’s event promises to be another fun night of excellent food and drinks, boxing, auctions, a great band and much more! We hope you can make it. Check the website at . Cailey was just awarded the Toronto Real Estate Board’s Civic Service Award for her work with Fight for Independence and the Shelter Foundation. This award recognizes members who make a difference in their communities by holding local fundraisers, volunteering in the communities and contributing in countless other ways to charitable causes.
We would like to thank all of our clients who donated items to our Annual Garage Sale. The event is a national Royal LePage initiative to raise funds for The Shelter Foundation. The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention and education programs. This year we raised $410,000 for these important causes.
Thank you again for your continued support. We greatly appreciate your business and referrals. It is our goal that every client who works with our team becomes a lifelong client and that they are comfortable recommending our service to anyone they know.
Enjoy the summer!
Cailey, James, Heather, Pamela, Sylvia & Angela
