March Newsletter ~ The PEDLAR Team Update

We Made It To March

We have almost made it through this winter as the first day of Spring comes closer and closer on March 20th!! We had some wild weather in February so we are happy to be over with that. With the temperature all over the place made for some icy conditions on our roads and walkways.

February was a very exciting month for our family as Robyn and Mark welcomed two new beautiful baby girls into the world on February 26th. Both the girls, Charlotte and Chesney, and mom are happy and healthy so that is the main thing!! Not to mention how cute they are!!

Hope you all have a great month of March and keep smiling. The baby photos below are guaranteed to make you smile.

Top 6 Renovations In 2019!!

Looking to update your home this year? Thinking about resale value and return on investment? Here are some great ideas.

First Impressions: fresh landscaping, cleaning and/or painting the siding or replacing exterior doors.
Utility Upgrade: consider replacing your furnace, hot water tank or air conditioner unit.
Basement Suites: not sure this applies to our area as much as the GTA
Kitchen & Bathrooms: the two most important areas of a house.
Flooring: Everybody looks down when they enter the house so make sure your floors are in good shape.
Painting: this is about the easiest and cheapest way to give your house that fresh feel throughout the home/room.

Before Charlotte And Chesney Came Along We Were Able To Get Some Skiing In

Re/Max holds many events for across the globe for networking events and meet agents in other areas. So that when a client wants to move out of town that you can refer them to an agent we personally know. Re/Max held a skiing day at Osler Bluff Ski Club in Collingwood. It was a day out of the office for The PEDLAR Team but we still had our cell phones on the hill!! We managed to keep up with Doug.
