Marrying Eastern & Western Medicine

August 30th, 2007

I had surgery on my ankle last spring and am finding one does not bounce back as quickly as a 20 year old (last time I broke a bone).

Being an impatient patient, I sourced out help. My NEW road to full recovery embraces Western and Eastern medicine. I go to physio twice a week AND to a homeopathic acupuncturist once or twice a week.

The Eastern approach to healing is new for m ...

WHISTLER MARKET

August 29th, 2007

It is interesting how close in proximity Vancouver and Whistler are, YET how perplexing and different their real estate markets!!

Last week, I was showing a Vancouver client some properties under $400,000. Unlike Vancouver, we had many to choose from ... over 12 in Tamarisk alone!!

One would think that with this year's bumper snowfall AND with the Olympics on the horizon, that t ...

MULTIPLE OFFERS AND STRATEGIES

August 23rd, 2007

I had a client who decided to write on a Coquitlam property last Saturday. Offers were presented on Monday AND by the time the offers went in there were 3 offers ready to present. UGH!!! This buyer's stress was NOW cranked up 10 notches. The scenerio played out with one offer being accepted AND that offer had a subject!!! This would never happen in Vancouver. It's amazing to me how differen ...

Strata Documents

August 3rd, 2007

STRATA DOCUMENTS AND MAKING OFFERS

I have been working with a few groups of clients interested in buying strata properties. It is interesting how some agents are so organized with all the meeting minutes, Form 'B' and bylaws readily available upon request. Since these documents are important to the buyer in determining whether or not they purchase, why doesn't every agent have their s ...

Saw the seals sunning themselves with their baby pups and a large bald eagle en route. Not every inspector is game to go for a boat ride lugging his ladder and other equipment but we found the perfect inspector Cliff ...
