Welcome to our February 2015 e-Newsletter!        

Valentine's Day is this weekend! It's the rare person who will turn down chocolate, so whether you've been together 20 years or 20 days, it's always appropriate. Below is a link to the places you can find the city's best. You may just find me at the sampler bar at any one of them...

If you're looking for something avant-garde to do, the Rhubarb Festival is returning for its 36th year! While the performances aren't to everybody's taste, it's a nice alternative to the big touring shows, and it's all homegrown. And just for fun, check out below, a link to 14 of the world's most beautiful tree-lined streets.

Along with the market news, I have an article about the booming condo rental market. You'll also find three listings, which include a spectacular two bedroom corner unit at Radio City, a condo for lease in City Place and a one bedroom condo for rent at The Matrix.

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