A Few Testimonials

-"Sheila has made the purchase process of our house in Saskatoon easy and uncomplicated. Sheila knows the Saskatoon market and area and knows a lot about houses, so when we were looking at places she was able to spot and discuss many aspects of the homes that we may have missed.

This is the 5th house that we have purchased in 30 years and it has been by far the easiest and least stressful purchase. Sheila listened to what we were looking for and when a house came on the market that fit our needs she contacted us. She recommended a mortgage broker and a building inspector and in two trips to Saskatoon everything was completed and clear.

It was a very pleasant and fun experience. I would use and recommend Sheila to anyone."

Cathy Stephens, Medicine Hat (Buyer)

-"Sheila is a knowledgeable and professional realtor! She went the extra mile at every turn to make sure my needs were met and the property I bought was top notch ! I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home. In addition to her ability as a realtor she is a thoughtful and caring person and that shows in how she takes care of her clients !"

Moving Checklist

 

Moving Checklist

Planning Your Move

One Month before Making the Move:

Start a moving expenses book. Some of your expenses may be tax deductible, so be sure to save the receipts.

 Make an appointment with the moving company rep to come to your home to discuss the move  Ask for an experienced driver who will be responsible for packing and moving your things  Ask about cost, timing requirements, the company’s liability in case of damage or loss  Make special arrangements for moving a piano, antiques, appliances etc.  Obtain a written commitment from the moving company you choose.  Ask for recent referrals and phone them  Make any necessary arrangements to move family, ie: hotel reservations, plane tickets etc.  Gather together all important documents and store them in a safe place – such as safety deposit box.  Take a good look at what is worth taking and what is not. Be ruthless. Have a garage sale or rent a garage bin and get rid of all the stuff you really do not need.  Make plans for the children and pets for moving day  Arrange for school and records for transfers to new schools and Doctor’s records to new office.  Get boxes, packing paper, heavy twine and/or masking tape if you are packing yourself  Stop or transfer newspaper and other home deliveries.  Make a floor plan of your new home and plan where everything will go. Take necessary measurements, do not try to guess.

Two Weeks before the Move:

 Return all items you have borrowed including library books.  Dispose of flammable items.  Book freight elevator if you are moving in or out of an apartment.  When packing, number all the boxes. Keep an inventory list. Label each box with the room where it belongs in your new home. Seal boxes.

One Week before the Move

 Prepare a list of all items you plan to take with you personally. Include all jewellery and any valuables which you do not wish to entrust to movers.  Dismantle and/or unfasten anything that requires it.  Prepare a list of everything that is left to do.  Confirm the booking for the moving company  Defrost and air the deep freezer.

2 Days before the Move

 Do your last laundry. Disconnect and drain the washing machine.  Finish packing

The Day before the Move

 Lead packers around the house and make sure they understand all your written instructions.  Gather together all keys for the new owners, including garage and shed.  Pack items that you will carry with you: Mark them; DO NOT LOAD! THIS IS FOR THE CAR!

Moving Out

 Conduct a final check for possible forgotten items.  Check inventory for number of boxes – break down by room.  Check Mover’s Bill of Lading against your inventory.  Turn the heat down.

Moving In

 Arrive at your new house before the movers. Take milk, bread, coffee, tea with you. It will be a long day.  Verify that the utilities have been turned on.  Give copies of your floor plan to the movers. As your goods arrive, examine each item carefully as it is put in place and check off y our inventory.  Note any damage. You won’t be able to check goods which have not been unpacked, so above your signature on the Bill of Lading write “Subject to loss or hidden damage.  The first priorities for unpacking will be the children’s rooms, TV and radio, and basic kitchen supplies.  Take a deep breath and accept the fact that it will take a while to settle in
