Interfering with the rights of a neighbour... "My neighbour BBQ's right beside my bedroom window which causes my entire suite to fill up with smoke when it is used.   I've tried speaking to them and I've asked if they would consider moving it.

What is keeping some Buyers out of the market, or at least very upset, is the over-priced listings of owners with unrealistic expectations, and unwilling to listen to reason. These Sellers, and their agents, look so absolutely foolish to those viewing the properties, or at least to the majority w...
I recently re-read this blog post: http://www.matthewferrara.com/next-generation/measureperformance, by Matthew Ferrara entitled, "How to Measure REALTOR Performance".

The Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic dates are February 12 to 28, followed on March 12 to 21 by the Paralympics Winter Games. Visitors to the Olympics are already starting to organize their trips to British Columbia and many will need to consider accommodation options in Vancouver's surrounding area...
Generating traffic to an open house means that I must be aware of what audience it will attract, and in my opinion a correlation generally exists between the type of property and the homebuyer. The public remarks used in a listing must therefore be designed for the target buyer, and the National ...
"The only sign that counts" is a tagline I've used in the past when doing a postcard mailing.
