Welcome to our December 2014 e-Newsletter!        

Think finding a house in Toronto is a challenge as a buyer? You may be surprised to learn it's also become a challenge for developers as even the most dilapidated homes are causing bidding wars. Below is a link to an interesting article from the Globe. Big renovations are not for amateurs!

If you're looking for gift ideas for the loveable nerd in your life, HGTV has a photo spread of 23 decor ideas. The keyboard waffle iron and and the toast printer are the highlights.

I also have four listings which include a spectacularly upgraded two bedroom corner unit at Radio City, a renovator's dream condo at Harbourfront and a unique two-level loft-style condo in The Annex/ Yorkville.

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