Welcome to our March 2016 e-Newsletter!

Design fans will want to check out an exhibit on Toronto's Art Deco history featuring the drawings of Benjamin Brown, who designed dozens of buildings in Toronto. You'll find more information on that below, along with a guide to Toronto's best crepes, Liberty Village Then and Now photos, a link to Toronto Fashion Week and an article about the Canadian Housing Market. 

With the mild weather upon us, the spring market is here! A record number of properties changed hands in February, yet there is still a shortage of homes on the market. Please get in touch if you are planning on making a move this year. 

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

Canadian home price gains to slow, says top realtor

Realtor Royal LePage says it expects Canada's real estate market to slow this year due to eroding affordability in Toronto and Vancouver and the fallout from declining oil prices in Western Canada.

In its latest report, the realtor says the average price of a Canadian home increased 6.5 per cent to $500,688 in the fourth quarter of last year, compared to the same period on 2014.

Liberty Village Then and Now

If you see a pedestrian strolling down Liberty Street today, they could be on their way to a condo or office stacked in one of the repurposed brick warehouses still lining the road.

Just over 100 years ago they might have been taking their first steps towards freedom following a prison sentence; the narrow street that Liberty Village shares its name with was once home to a pair of correctional facilities.
