We've got some gorgeous houses on the market, ranging from $414,900 to $819,900. If you or anyone you know is looking for a home, call Rob today! 416-450-7614.
We would like to thank you for completing the successful sale of our house. The numbers were truly impressive as we had approximately 100 showings, 11 offers and we selected the best offer. The best offer was 109% of the list price. The whole process lasted 8 days from beginning to end.
There was a beautiful display of brochures and other marketing material available in our front hallway. It was a pleasure to work with such a professional Realtor. Our questions were answered promptly and you were available throughout the process. Rob is accessible because he answers his own phone. In every respect I would encourage people to choose Rob to list your home if you want the best professional service.
There is no doubt in our minds Rob's effort resulted in a selling price that was several thousands of dollars higher than any other agent. Rob is a real professional and it is no fluke that he is in the top 1% of all Royal LePage agents.

I just wanted to take this time to thank you during the somewhat stressful process of selling our property.You were great, knowledgeable and very professional. After having such a bad experience with another Realtor trying to sell the house for over 5 months, you made it so smooth, fast and painless. I appreciate all your help and I definitely will be recommending you as a professional real estate agent." - M&B
Thank you to our past clients for their kind words! We truly appreciate it, and it's been a pleasure to work with you in selling of your home.

Let's face it, we hate winter. Sure it has its perks if you're an avid skiier, snowboarder, hockey player or fan of any number of the winter sports that we Canadians hold near and dear to our hearts. But if you're not a winter sports person, or prefer just watching it on TV from the couch at home, winter stinks. It's unnecessarily cold with extreme winds, frozen cheeks, dry skin, salt on EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME... but as Canadians, we should know how to walk across ice, seeing as at least half of our year consists of some of it! There's a right way and a wrong way, so to avoid a big bruise, follow the right way!

Don't forget to move your clocks forward one hour before you go to sleep on Saturday night. On Sunday March 8th at 2:00 am, clocks move forward an hour, making it actually 3:00 am. While it'll likely interrupt your sleeping habits, it'll be nice to have some extra hours of sunshine!

Sheep or Goat? This seems to be the great debate. Either way, Gong Hei Fat Choi - or, in English, Happy New Year! For some of the world, the new year begins on January 1st. But for millions around the world, mid-February marks the Chinese New Year. This Chinese festival egins on the second new moon after the winter solstice and ending on the full moon 15 days later. It is marked by family and friends, special meals, fireworks and gift giving.
Food is such an important part of many cultures. It brings people together, it inspires conversation, photography, it stimulates the senses. Holidays inspire some of the best cuisine. If you're celebrating Chinese New Year or any holiday really, you cannot go wrong with a dumpling - or pot sticker, as they're often referred to as. For a great recipe to make some dumplings for your next get together, you need to check THIS out!
FIVE quick facts about Chinese New Year:
1) It's China's most important holiday
2) Roughly a sixth of the world will celebrate it
3) 2015 is the year of the goat/sheep*
4) Children will sleep with money under their pillow
5) Red clothing and elements are essential
*2015 is the year of the goat, but you may see it referred to as the “Year of the Sheep” too.
The confusion stems from the Chinese character “yang”, which can translate in colloquial Chinese as either sheep or goat.
Those born in 1919, 1931, 1943, 1967, 1979, 1991 or 2003 are goats, who can count their lucky colours as brown, red and purple.
Their characters are supposedly kind and peaceable, while their best months are supposedly August and November and their lucky flowers are primroses and carnations.
And there is your "Chinese New Year Lesson"!
Whatever you're doing, celebrating or not, do it with the people who make you the happiest!
'Til next time,
