Dreams are Goals without Plans. Stop Dreaming.
Apply now to find out if I can help you save on what you already own to put towards those goals, to pull equity to fund those goals, or to find out what you need to do to acheive the goal of home ownership.
Any goals I can't help plan for, I'm more than happy to refer to someone who can. And if I can't help directly with your goals, ask about my referral program so that in your referring me to someone I'm more immediately able to help, I'm able to do more to help you.

My Marketing... It's You.
Marketing is one of the biggest questions in commission referral businesses. What do you do? Advertise on the radio? TV? Mailers? Magazines?Maybe you do sponsored content on facebook or are real cutting edge and have an advertisement running on YouTube.
Ive considered the radio but Im the only person I know who listens to it and it is a bit out of my early career price range. TV has similar problems only I dont even watch that.
Ive done a few mailers. Theyre comparably affordable and great for getting to a lot of houses but I expect all those houses are like myself, and any non mail goes straight to the recycling. I dont want to contribute to that much garbage.
Ive done some facebook because of affordability and immediacy as I can track whos actually clicked, and I know people are on facebook.
What inspired this post though, was hearing about magazine adverts. To be in a certain real estate magazine, a realtor I know spends $15,000 for a one page advertisement once a year.... $15k... For paper...
As a realtor, he only needs a referral or two from the advertisement to have it pay for itself, and he believes it has been worthwhile. As a broker my numbers arent quite that good, and even if I had it $15k seems absurd to me to spend on a single local advertisement. I can think of WAY better ways of spending $15k.
So I did.
Summer 2018 will have the first annual Carson Park Football Scholarship. Depending on how business goes this, my 2nd year in the industry, will dictate how much Im able to give to how many graduates looking to play university level football.
So knowthat your referrals to me not only result in a kick back to your pocket, but directly provide an opportunity to someone who otherwise may not have had it.
I thank you for your referrals, and so do future recipients.

Actual (not seasonally adjusted) sales activity posted a 15.2% y-o-y gain in June.
REALTORS across Canada are increasingly seeing business pick back up, stated Costa Poulopoulos, Chair of CREA. With sellers and buyers returning to the market, we continue to make sure clients stay safe by complying with government and health officials directives and advice, increasingly using technology to list and show properties virtually while providing secure methods to complete required forms and contracts. As always, but maybe now more than ever, REALTORS remain the best source for information and guidance when negotiating the sale or purchase of a home, continued Poulopoulos.
Bank of Canada will maintain current level of policy rate until inflation objective is achieved, continues program of quantitative easing
The Bank of Canada today maintained its target for the overnight rate at the effective lower bound of percent. The Bank Rate is correspondingly percent and the deposit rate is percent. The Bank is also continuing its quantitative easing (QE) program, with large-scale asset purchases of at least $5 billion per week of Government of Canada bonds. The Banks short-term liquidity programs announced since March to improve market functioning are having their intended effect and, with reduced market strains, their use has declined. The provincial and corporate bond purchase programs will continue as announced. The Bank stands ready to adjust its programs if market conditions warrant.
