Mississauga residents, this affects you! And everyone else in the region of Peel. The ways of waste disposal are changing to bi-weekly pickups and they're also providing homes with waste bins. You have the opportunity to choose the sizes yourself, or if you do not make the choice, you're given what the city has chosen for you, based on your household size. The deadline to select cart sizes is March 31st, 2015. For more information or to select bin sizes, visit: http://prd.app1.peelregion.ca/cart-confirmation/
We've got a beauty of a home listed for sale in Georgetown South, just a quick 15 minute drive from North Mississauga. This beautiful town boasts an abundance of newer build homes in an up and coming community and older character homes. It has the benefits of a shopping centre, GO transit system, old town "main street", parks and the Credit River running through.
Many people are coming to Georgetown as an alternative from living in the ever-growing Mississauga and Milton. It's close enough for commuters but far enough to still feel like it's a small town. This listing is at 82 Chaplin Crescent, in South Georgetown. Nestled in a newer subdivision, it's steps to great schools and parks, shopping, LCBO, banks and dining options.
This 3065 square foot 4 bedroom, 5 bathroom home boasts 3 full washrooms on the second floor, hardwod flooring throughout, beautifully updated kictchen with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, 2 gas fireplaces, main floor family room, office with french doors, main floor laundry, fantastic family-friendly entertainer's basement with dry bar, inground pool and spill-over spa in private backyard.
There's so much that's good about this house that you need to see it for yourselves. The photos don't do it justice. The size, quality and growth potential is absolutely amazing. Check out the virtual tour on our website, and call today for a personal showing and to learn more about why Georgetown just might be the town for you. Contact us at 416.450.7614 any time!

I'd like to think that likeminded individuals gravitate toward each other for a reason. The clients we have, in my opinion at least, are the best clients. Easy-going, friendly, honest and kind... and sometimes they send us sweet notes, like this one:
To the Rob Kelly Team:
All I can say is...WOW!
We called Rob a few months ago when we first started thinking about selling our home, and we were impressed from the very beginning in regards to his responsiveness and professionalism. He along with the rest of his team, Jason and Andria, have consistently treated us with the utmost respect, and we felt very taken care of. We asked for a cute little character home with a big yard for our dog, and Jason found it...fast. This led to needing to sell our house quickly, which Rob did. In 12 days. With multiple offers. Above asking. Our heads were just spinning but Andria kept us completely updated all along the way and was so incredibly cheerful and easy to deal with. The process of buying and selling and negotiating was a real whirlwind, and we learned firsthand what it meant to be working with true experts. Having a professional stager come in just before showing was a fantastic touch and it made a HUGE difference in the outcome.
We've dealt with other real estate agents in the past in other transactions, and those experiences don't even come close. In those situations we really were just another commission, as opposed to a valued client.
We felt like we mattered. We were beyond impressed and are very grateful.
It was a true pleasure to work with Rob and his team, and we cannot thank you enough.
Neil & Monique
We as a team, strive to be the best we can be. We put our clients first, and look out for their best interests. We love what we do... and we love to help people. It's simply our way.
We'd love to work with you on selling or buying a home? First time? No problem. We can connect you with a great mortgage representative to get you started on the pre-qualification process. We have a network of professionals who helps us help you. Just give us a call; it would be our pleasure to work with you.

Economists largely predicted that Toronto’s housing market would be the main winner from the downturn in oil prices and rock-bottom interest rates and so far the region’s housing market is proving them right.
Home sales in the Greater Toronto Area rose 6.1 percent in January compared to a year earlier, according to new figures from the Toronto Real Estate Board. Average prices jumped 4.9 percent even as the region saw a spike in new listings, which rose 9.5 percent compared to a year earlier.
The growth was driven mainly by sales in the outside of the city. Sales of detached and semi-detached houses in Toronto dropped more than 2 percent, while sales of townhouses fell nearly 10 percent. Only condo sales saw a yearly gain of 6 percent.
January buyers instead flocked to the suburbs, sending sales of condos soaring 23 percent, while detached home sales jumped 10 percent. The shift is almost certainly driven by affordability as the average detached home in Toronto sold for nearly $950,000 in January compared to $650,000 outside the city.
It’s the second month of strong growth for the region’s housing market even as winter is considered the slowest time of year for home sales. December sales rose by nearly 10 percent compared to a year earlier while average prices were up 7 percent.
Despite a strong start to the housing market, Toronto is feeling the effects of the broader economic uncertainty from falling oil prices and the plummeting loonie. The amount of industrial space leased in the region dropped 25 percent in January compared to the same time last year, while leased office space fell 3.3 percent. The sales price of most commercial buildings also dropped across the region, with industrial prices falling 40 percent to $80 per sq. ft.
“On the one hand, we have the potential for the drop in oil prices to impact the Canadian economy as a whole,” Toronto Real Estate Board president Paul Etherington said in a statement. “On the other hand, we have the potential positive impacts of the lower Canadian dollar on exports from southern Ontario. As we move toward the spring, we should have a better indication of the net effects on commercial real estate markets in the GTA.”

Well that was an exciting night last night; a fabulous end to a busy listing period! In 8 days and with more than 40 showings, we received 6 offers on this great Meadowvale townhouse and it SOLD FIRM for more than $25,000 above the asking price. That's 107%!! It was a record-breaking sale for the neighbourhood - $22,000 more than the highest price ever recorded in either 6810 or 6830 Meadowvale Town Centre Circle. Needless to say, our Seller is thrilled. No more running in and out of the house, tidying in between showings. In the end, it's all about matching the right people with the right property. Working with exceptional real estate professionals who understand their client's needs and expert negotiations.
Our first listing in 2015 SOLD with a record sale price.
SOLD for 107% of ASK!
