Giving Back in 2018

 

It's widely known that Century 21 is a very proud supporter of Easter Seals Kids To Camp program.  

 

This terrific organization works with physically challenged children to enable them to experience the thrill of a week at summer camp. All funds raised in Manitoba remain in our province for the benefit of kids in our communities. 

 

For the past 8+ years, I too have been a regular supporter to Kids To Camp and in 2018 I plan to kick things up a notch by goaling myself to be one of Century 21’s top 21 donors to Kids to Camp in Canada. 

 

I plan to achieve this goal by making a generous donation to Kids To Camp with each and every sale throughout this year. So a “Thank You” goes out in advance to all my supportive clients who choose to buy and/or sell with me in 2018.

"Camp is more than a game changer... Camp is a life changer."

Real Estate Investing in & around Winnipeg

One of the best investments available to everyone is Real Estate! There is no more land being made and there are no two properties alike. Determining what your Real Estate investment goals are is your first step. Are you looking at real estate as a rental property, maybe a single detached home or a multi unit property? Can you professionally refurbish an unliveable property to a liveable property? Your next step to ask yourself is, who’s on your team to help you achieve these goals? The professionals that I would recommend when forming your team are as follows: Realtor, Mortgage Specialist, Handyman, Accountant/Tax Specialist and Lawyer.  I recommend thinking through your goals and following these steps: be specific with your goals, goals must be measurable, put you goals in writing, your goals must be realistic and with a time frame.

Here are a few website links if you are a rental property owner or thinking about becoming one...
