You may not realize it, but choosing the wrong agent can make your whole real estate experience a nightmare.

I think most of you know by now that I haven't been a Realtor forever. Actually, I just celebrated my 3-year anniversary of being licensed last month. Celebrated...

It's wishful thinking to think you'll get through 2018 without competing in a bidding war.

Well, the Spring market for 2018 is right around the corner - although some may argue it's already begun - and if the activity in the condo market so far is any indication of thin...

Very limited supply, super strong demand, with bad government policy thrown in equals madness.

Over the last couple years I've done a ton of rentals, all over the city but mainly in the downtown core. It's always been competitive for as long as I can remember and rental...

You mean I might have to actually try to price my property before I list it? 

Things are a little wonky out there right now. Wonky is the word I use whenever I can't really find the word to describe something, like "man, this fish tastes wonky" or "it's really wonky tha...

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... 

So I have to admit, I've never read A Tale of Two Cities, but I've probably quoted that opening line several times in my lifetime. I think it may have been on my required reading list back in high school or somethi...
