FIRST TIME HOME BUYER'S PACKAGE

FIRST TIME HOME BUYER'S PACKAGE!

I love to work with first time home buyers!  I have put together a comprehensive  25 page complimentary First Time Home Buyers Package that I will send to you on request.  It explains the process from deciding what you want in a home, securing a mortgage, signing agreements to moving in day.  Email me at: arlene.turkington@century21.ca and ask for a copy today or phone me on my cell at:  519 572-4944.

I was born in Toronto and spent my summers as a child on our family farm in rural New Brunswick.  My husband, son and I moved to Kitchener Waterloo in 1987 in search of a friendly community and a larger home to raise our son in.  We have never regretted the move! 

I have five very special people in my life, my grand children.  I still find it hard to believe I have been so blessed.  I love them dearly.

One of my biggest passions is to travel the world.  On my list is Italy, England and India. 

Please join me on Facebook!  I enjoy interacting on Facebook and feel the more people I am friends with the better.  I have photos of my art and family on this site.  www.facebook.com  Please put me down as your friend.

 

I love art!  For 15 years I was a full time artist.  Early in my career I made the decision to make art that was inspired by the natural world.  One of my projects was a display of jars each one containing an object/objects that I found while out walking.  I filled one jar per week.  At the end of the year I displayed all 52 jars according to the season on one table.  I showed this art installation at Homer Watson House and Gallery.  I am still an active artist.  I continue to draw and explore the world of print making. At least twice a year I take the time to create some small object for my real estate clients.  Last summer I sent them hand made book marks. I have found my artist inclinations to be of a real benefit to sellers in that I have been able to give them suggestions on staging their homes that have helped them to get the best price for their homes.

Education

 

I am a recent graduate of the Floyd Wickman Sales Training Program offered through Century 21 Home Realty.

I have a Bachelor of Applied Arts Degree from Ryerson University.  In my youth I attended the Sheridan School of Design and York University. (Those were good days!) 

Professional Background

Many of you in the Kitchener Waterloo community will recognize me as a fine artist.  My art has been exhibited at the Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery, Cambridge Libraries and Galleries, Homer Watson House and Gallery and other local galleries.  I am have been a member of the Ontario Society of Artists for 12 years and have exhibited through them in Toronto.  My career as an artist has given me the advantage of developing a very creative mind that allows me to think outside of the box and put together an effective marketing plan to sell your home.

Certified Pre-Owned Homes Program- A Home Warranty!

I am a new member of  a program designed to get you the Highest Price for your Home. This program is called the Certified Pre-Owned Home Program and it is a wonderful addition to the other unique advantages I can give my Buyers.  Modeled after the Certified Pre-Owned Automobile programs that have become very popular with auto buyers, the program is designed in this way:  Your home is pre-inspected by a Certified Pre-Owned Inspector, any deficiencies found are corrected and then your homes is granted  a Home Warranty.  This Home Warranty covers the structure, roof, heating and air conditioning systems, electrical, plumbing, ductwork as well as such components as central vacuum systems, door bells, garage door openers as well as appliances that remain with the house including the refrigerator, stove, built-in ovens, microwaves and dishwashers.  The best part is that the warranty is good for one year from closing for the benefit of the Buyer.

What this means is that when you list your home with me and receive your Home Warranty I will advertise your warranty on MLS, my website and on your for sale sign.  Think of the confidence and value buyers will recognize in your home when they are writing up their Offer to Purchase.  Confidence and Peace of Mind can lead to a higher price and quicker sale.

Smarter Bolder Faster.

 

 

Community Involvement

As many of you know I live and sell homes in Uptown Waterloo.  For over 25 years I have lived in Uptown first on Menno St. and presently on Mary St.  What this means is that for over 25 years I have lived and worked in Uptown and I know this market well!  I attend as many Waterloo Council meetings as I can manage.  I have attended meetings on the proposed  Rapid Transit plans, the building of The Bauer Lofts, 144 Park St., 155 Park St., the Red Condominiums and the St. Louis School proposal. I am personally and professionally committed to this unique part of Kitchener Waterloo and am interested in all activities and events that happen here.
