Busy Month of March for me!

With spring just around the corner, it is getting busier and the Real Estate Board is keeping me busy as well. OREA meetings are in Toronto this week, where we get to vote for our southwestern Ontario Representative, on the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) Board of Directors. Joe Hough, from my real estate board, the London and St.Thomas Association of Realtors (LSTAR), is running so I wish him luck with the election. I get to vote at this meeting as I am the Vice President of LSTAR, so that should be interesting meeting all the candidates from across Ontario that will be at the meeting.

London St. Thomas Board of Directors for 2010

This is a photo of the 2010 Board of Directors for LSTAR. Great group of professionals that I got to work with this past year at the real estate board in London. I will miss some of them, but then again there is a new Board of Directors for 2011 and I get to meet more wonderful real estate agents that care about real estate and their profession

Made it up skiing...

If only Grand Bend had a ski hill, we would be in heaven here! But at this point in time there are not any volcanoes or major fault shifts that would create a mountain, so we have to go to Collingwood. Here I am with Mark and Garrett trying to keep warm on a cold day....note the smiles on our faces though.

Home Sales still steady in January

The London St. Thomas Association of Realtors reported that in the first month of 2011, 428 homes exchanged hands, down 9.3% from the previous year.
“The ten year average for January sales stands at 458,” explains LSTAR President Jack Lane.
“So, while this month’s figures are nothing to get excited about, they are also nothing to be
concerned about. Slow and steady wins the race.”  This month, as in previous months and years, homes in LSTAR’s jurisdiction maintain their affordability compared to other major Ontario and Canadian centers.

Winter is quiet time along the Ausable River

With all the activity going on around town this past weekend it was quiet down by the river with the snow piling up and not a lot of boat traffic!

The weather was perfect for the Winter Carnival here in Grand Bend. These pictures show some of the snow carvings along the Main Street. Everyone had alot of fun in the snow.
