New Year’s Eve 1990. I’m newly single. My best friend and I plan to travel from Ottawa (where we live) to Montreal for some guy’s annual New Year’s Eve bash. But there’s a snowstorm outside. And she has a terrible cold. But we go anyway. And I meet my future husband there — he’s the “some […]
I’ve put on 12 pounds in the 3 years I’ve been involved in the world of real estate, first as a Montreal home stager and now as a Montreal real estate agent too. Worse than the weight, I totally dropped my running and pilates. I used to be in great shape. Now I’m in terrible shape. […]
My listing for a St. Laurent 3-bedroom condo just sold for 98% of the asking price and in 30 days. The market average for this type of property was 93 days. No price reduction.

What potentially serious effects are possible with Kamarga? People in Britain buy more medicaments per person than any other place. The availability of medicaments provided by companies is definitely a contributing factor to prescription medication abuse epidemic. In fact, almost 40 percent of immigrants buy medicaments online. Unfortunately, many such pharmacies operate from third countries, […]
When and how did it become all about the glamour shot in real estate? I don’t think it was always like this. But now, everywhere you look, you’ve got real estate agents’ faces plastered on For Sale signs, in newspaper ads for open houses, on business cards, on billboard signs for lots and developments. What gives? Are […]
Casting call for Montreal filming of new show for W Network featuring couples renovating a room in their house.
I LOVE my work. Is it really work? Because it sure feels like play to me. I am doing what I was meant to do: Montreal real estate and Montreal home staging.
