Those monthly fees are a real factor when it comes to condo living, and condo values.
How is everyone holding up? I'm used to working from home. It's all I do. I think I go into my brokerage office like twice a year just to check my mail. I'm sure most folks at one poin...

It feels a lot like early 2017 all over again...But what's different this time?
Do you ever get deja vu? I've often been in a conversation with someone I've never met and all the while I'll be having an internal monologue with myself that usually goes like "I know I've...

Many people think paying condo fees is a "waste of money". They couldn't be more wrong.

You may not like spending more than you planned, but in the long run it might be the right move.
Hindsight is always 20/20 but if you've ever worked with me, you probably realize I like to throw in a lot of my own personal experiences while we house hunt. I think by sha...

Sometimes it takes more than just a single sale to set "market value" for a building.
Most of my blog posts come from actual experiences while helping clients. It's usually about a question I get over and over, or something I notice clients or agents saying or doing tha...
