Alex attended the 28th Canadian Conference hosted by RE/MAX of Western Canada on October 23-25, 2013.

 

The conference was held at the Victoria Conference Centre in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia.

 

The day before the start of the conference Alex participated in the Cross Canada Referrals Mastermind Summit. This is a day where top realtors from across Canada share various marketing and business ideas. It also connects Alex with these Realtors - therefore if you are looking for a Top Realtor in Canada to help you just drop Alex an email - contact@alexjwilson.com and he will be able to refer you to one.

 

At 6:30 AM on the first day of the conference Craig Pilgram of RE/MAX Real Estate of St. Albert, Alberta organized the RE/MAX Run 4 Kids for the Children's Miracle Network. A total of $9021 was raised - after a late night out socializing and networking at the CCR welcoming reception - this was not an easy task for Alex.

 

Having the opportunity to meet various speakers such as Tom Ferry, Michael Thorne and much more, Alex was so inspired by all the creative ideas generated.

 

Useful information to increase business such as brand design, platform tools, social media and international referrals are really an eye-opener for Alex and our fellow realtors.

 

What also enhanced Alex's experience are the networking sessions and the ice-cream social, it is all about meeting people and broadening horizon, and of course, having some delicious ice-cream!

 Westbank buys Honest Ed's
 
Westbank Projects Corp., the Vancouver developer who built Toronto's 65-storey Shangri La hotel, has signed a deal to purchase Honest Ed's, according to media reports on Sunday, 27 October, 2013. 
 
  
Famous for it's big sign, bargains, arts and craftsmanship, some Toronto residents will surely miss the iconic spot in Downtown. But don't worry, according to David Mirvish, owner of Honest Ed's, the deal with Westbank will close later this year, the approvals process for the development would take approximately two to three years, during with time Honest Ed's will continue to operate.
 
What do you think? Do you think it is a loss for Toronto? Or is it time for condos and big stores to stir in the area?
