Real Estate 101 Downsizing, renovating, selling or buying, which one is right for me?


We invite you to join us for our upcoming complimentary workshop we call the “Lunch & Learn” series. Each month we will be introducing new and interesting topics.

This event took place at the Thornhill Golf & Country Club on Monday, July 21st between 12:00 and 1:00pm.

Have you ever wondered if you are making the right choice? Your children will be leaving the nest soon and you have too much space. Do you want to downsize? Maybe you are thinking of buying a smaller home or perhaps a condo. Should you stay and renovate? Are you thinking of selling your cottage? What is the trend in real estate? When is the right time to sell? These are real concerns; how do you get started on making the best decision for you and your family?
