Big-Name Realtors Discuss Optimized Consumer Websites

I could not have made myself clearer. My stand is, and always has been, that CENTURY 21 Canada is not trying to be an alternative to the existing real estate structure and organization in Canada. Not now, and not in the future. We support organized real estate – as I have always stated, and told The Globe and Mail this week. You would not be alone if you were confused by that article’s ...

Trip to Easter Seals Camp

Last week we were invited to attend the Easter Seals Camp in beautiful Squamish BC. Wow! All l I can say is how grateful we are to have the honour of being involved in such a wonderful program.

Any Technology at Any Age

You've probably heard the demographic rumours that communications technologies are not understood or embraced by “older” Canadians. I am 64 years old. When I graduated high school in 1965, people were using shorthand to take notes at work, and the phones were rotary-dial.
