Wednesday, January 27, 2010 -

We are well into January and the Market is still very strong! Its an excellent opportunity for first time buyers to take advantage of the low rates, and I have a few listings that would appeal to them. 

And if you own a house - especially what I term "older homes on larger lots in established neighbourhoods" - and want to sell for a lot of money, now is a great time to do so as well!  These type of homes in Richmond are now well over $700,000!

I was pleased once again to qualify for the "Medallion Club" last year, as this is an honour bestowed on the top 10% of Realtors.  I've now been in this business over 27 years, and I still very much enjoy it. Although it can be very trying at times and the hours are a little odd, I like the fact that every day is different, and you get to deal and interact with such a wide variety of people.  I imagine I will be in Real Estate until the day I "Pack it in", as I doubt I will ever Retire!

Also, I am very excited about the upcoming Olympics.  In my opinion, its going to be the greatest thing that ever happened to our area, and as it rapidly approaches, even those hardened types that have been dead set against the cost and inconvenience of the games are starting to look forward to it.  I just hope the weather co operates and it doesn't pour rain for the whole time!  I would think it would not be too impressive if TV watchers from around the world see nothing but umbrellas for the whole "fortnight".

I have volunteered for the games and will be a "driver", which basically means I will be an unpaid Taxi Driver for Olympic Employees and athletes around the Vanouver Area.  I have about half a dozen shifts and it should actually be quite an experience.

In closing, I would like to say feel free to contact me if I can ever be of assistance, and make sure you get out and enjoy the Olympic experience!
