We just wrapped up a deal with a first time investor and landed him the perfect property to set him up for success. He’s not only getting paid E-V-E-R-Y single month but will also be able to enjoy an incredible return when he decides to sell and cash in down the road.

We know the Niagara market inside out and which properties will yield the greatest returns. There’s nothing more rewarding then helping our clients make money.

'Tis the season for gift giving and I kept that in mind when choosing which books to review in the holiday edition of Niagara Life. You've got mystery, contemporary (with a dash of historical), non-fiction and sports, and historical YA.
Check out my full reviews by finding the magazine around Niagara, looking at the print section on the Niagara this Week website, or by asking me!

On my way to the brokerage earlier this morning and this is what rush hour traffic looks like in Niagara! Love it! Don’t miss the DVP or Gardiner one bit. #niagaraonthelake#niagara#exploreniagara#niagaralife

With the holiday season approaching, and your family get-togethers on your mind, you may be noticing your house almost seems to be shrinking. Would you like a bigger kitchen, dining room, or entertaining space for future holiday guests? or could you use an extra spare bedroom for when your sister adds a little too much rum to her egg nog? Give me a call, and let's make it happen!

‘Twas the weeks before Christmas when all through the house, all the creatures were bugging out, maybe even a mouse. For all of you who are tired of seeing the most picturesque family Christmas photo shoots on your news feed or for anyone who loves a perfectly curated post....here’s to you?! 🤔🤣 Here’s some real life for you. If only I could fit in everything that’s happened in the last 3 weeks this is just a little snapshot. It’s been a mash up of living with the luck of Mr. Griswold and multiple Seinfeld episodes. We’ve all been sick in our house continually passing it back and forth. We’ve had both vehicles have issues a day apart, one in which I was driving on the highway with the kiddos. We’ve had a sudden death in the family. We’ve had a broken furnace. We’ve had unforeseen financial things come up. We’ve cancelled almost all plans. Most of this happening over my bday weekend. I’ve peed my pants numerous times. @always_brand has been my best friend through all the coughing. I’ve been surprisingly treated to a free lunch only to come out to my car a few minutes late to see a parking ticket on my dash. We’ve had puking and laundry galore. My house is a disaster. I’ve had to call in sick for work which I absolutely HATE. Being self employed there’s no such things as paid sick days either. The only thing any of us have yet to experience in all this is Diarrhea. Thankfully! I’m not looking for anyone to take pity on me, I’m just reminding ya’ll that past all the scrolling and envying we do on here that this is what life sometimes really looks like. I’ve had to try and laugh for the last few weeks so I’m not continually crying. I’m waiting for the moment where I can say YES! This IS the most wonderful time of the year. It’s coming.... I think....I hope. P.S- Thanks @netflixca and @trevornoah for providing some comic relief tonight!!!!! #thisisreallife #thisisus #niagaralife #compassionatestc #aseriesofunfortunateevents #ivegotchillstheyremultiplying #myacheybreakyheart #whatsagirltodo #partyof5 #arewethereyet #theseareafewofmyfavoritethings #deckthehalls #itsthemostwonderfultimeoftheyear #11weeksin #29togo
