I Hate To See You Go… December 31, 2012

But I Love To Watch You Leave. It’s been grand 2012 and yet it’s time for me to move on.

It’s not you, it’s me.

  • I’m ready for bigger, better things and you’re holding me to the past. I want more.

I’m really focused on my work right now.

  • See, it’s become increasingly important for me to get better than I’ve ever been and that means moving forward.

I still want to stay friends.

  • I mean, we had a good year. I’ve taught more than ever, helped agents get better at their craft and successfully given back to the three boards I sit on.

We’re at very different places.

  • See you’re almost over and I’m just beginning. I need more and 2013 seems to have what I’m looking for.

I love you… like a friend.

  • I love you, I’m just not in love with you. And, I really wanted to be. You’ve been a good-on-paper year. I just feel like a stronger pull to 2013.

I think this is best for both of us. I’ll always look back on our time together fondly. You’ve been so good to me. I’m just really ready for what 2013 holds.

Arrivederci, mon ami!


Tis the Season for… December 19, 2012

Personally, this is a great time of year to prep for next year. While I love to evaluate what I’ve done, I’m also ambitiously looking at 2013! I started planning for next year months ago and am putting the finishing touches on it these last few days of the year. I feel like waiting till January is missing the boat a bit. Am I the only one?

This is also a good time of year for gratitude. I live in gratitude. It’s funny how often I simply say ‘thank you’ and it seems to make someone do a double-take. When you express thankfulness and appreciation, you’ll see it continue to find you.

The extra step. I always love asking someone with a great idea what it looks like 3 steps in. I’m not suggesting that as much as I’m saying that most people don’t think 1 step in. What if you took 1 extra step? Tipped $1 more? Hugged 1 more person?

Deck the Halls. Celebrate your successes! 2012’s been an amazing year! We’ve seen family and friends get married, have babies, survive health scares and we’re still here to welcome 2013! Relish the high points of your amazing year and welcome 2013 with open arms!

Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! However your family celebrates, may this find you healthy and happy!


How’s the Market (From an Agent’s POV)? October 19, 2012


  • Debt soars into danger zone. Canadians have entered the debt danger zone that helped trigger real estate crashes in the U.S. and Britain.
  • May Dodge Housing Hard Landing. Pressures in the Toronto and Vancouver housing markets are moderating with neither a bubble nor a hard landing in sight for the country’s property market.
