2nd Annual Food Drive Results

Our 2nd Annual Food Drive put on in partnership with Green Bucks Country Christmas Store was another great success thanks to all of you that participated with either non-perishable food, toys and monetary donations. We always love giving people a reason to participate so once again we raffled off a $200 gift card to Green Bucks Country Christmas Store to one lucky participant. We will be doing this again next year over the month of November so keep an eye out on our social accounts (instagram & facebook) for updates.

Children's Miracle Network Donation

You may not know but the RE/MAX network in North America is tightly connected with the local Children's Hospitals. Every year many RE/MAX agents contribute a portion of their earnings to their local Children's Hospital. We are lucky enough to have our local Children's Hospital so close in London! This is a tradition that Doug Pedlar started in 1989 and that Mark and Garrett are excited to continue! To date RE/MAX agents across USA & Canada have donated nearly $200 million towards Children's Miracle Hospitals in North America.

Grand Bend & Lambton Shores Living Magazine Fire Safety Article


If you have received your December version of the Grand Bend & Lambton Shores Living you would have seen this article from the Lambton Shores Fire & Emergency Services but we figured it was great information that everyone should be aware of for this time of year. It is a fact around Christmas that there are more fire hazards that exist around the home so make sure to read this article and play it safe. 

Globe & Mail
Most Liveable Cities To Live In Canada

It doesn't come to a big suprise that Lambton Shores ranked so well in the Most Liveable Cities In Canada! What does come as a surprise is that they consider us a city?!?! I have always referred to this area as towns. Guess we learn something new everyday! 

That being said it is nice to see a smaller CITY get noticed amongst all the cities in Canada!

Lambton Shores was ranked #93 as the most liveable city in all of Canada!
Lambton Shores was ranked #2 as the most liveable city in all of Canada to retire in!
Lambton Shores was ranked #7 as the most liveable city in Canada with a vibrant community!

RE/MAX 2024 Canadian
Housing Market Outlook


Canadians’ outlook on home ownership remains positive, according to a new report from RE/MAX Canada, despite challenging market conditions in 2023, including a persistent housing shortage, and a tricky interest rate environment. According to the RE/MAX 2024 Housing Market Outlook Report, the majority of Canadians (73 per cent) are confident that home ownership is the best investment, a sentiment that remains unchanged year-over-year. Looking ahead, the RE/MAX network of brokers and agents expects the market to be slightly more active in 2024, with national average residential sale prices likely to increase by 0.5 per cent and 61 per cent of regions surveying anticipating unit sales to increase in 2024.
