Welcome to our February 2014 e-Newsletter!      

City council has passed the budget for 2014 and sadly, it doesn't include any reduction in the Land Transfer Tax. If you're having trouble wrapping your head around a ten figure budget, check out the article below from Torontoist.

I've also included a link to a cool site that is making the rounds these days that can tell you about the history of your home (or a home you're looking to purchase)...it will let you know if the house has a criminal record. I looked up my home and thankfully there's no history but it did share with me the criminal activity in the immediate area.

On a happier note, Valentine's Day is this Friday so below you'll find a link to Toronto's best florists. Please don't wait until Friday! If you're looking for a distraction, take a look at the Rhubarb Festival happening soon at Buddies in Bad Times!

As always, I thank you for your past and future business and any referrals you may have are greatly appreciated.

Need to check a home's criminal record? This website can help  


Every Toronto home has a history, but there are a few out there that have a past.

The city averages about 56 homicides a year, and they all have to happen someplace. There are fires, clandestine marijuana grow operations, and other, weirder crimes that defy concise description.
