Real Estate News, Home Improvements, and Community Awareness

This is what Real Estate is all about. Home-owners want to know how the market is doing (and whether that means they can level-up and make the jump from condo to townhome, from townhome to detached home, or from one detached home to two!). We'll do our best to keep you up-to-date on what we're reading about and which direction the trends seem to be moving. Of course, you can reach out to us anytime, to get a specific idea of what your home value looks to be sitting at.

We also love home improvements, interior design, staging and repurposing furniture to create new and functional items to freshen up your space - we recently converted a movable kitchen island into a change table! So, you'll find some tips and tricks here about how to view pieces with an open mind, what kinds of trends are happening in home design and décor, and the best ways to increase the value of your home. We'd love to hear about your ideas and we'd also love see photos of changes you've made to your own space.

And because we're such advocates for loving the neighbouhoods where we live, we also enjoy figuring out what's going on around town. Where do we find the best pizza? What activities are happening for kids to take part in? Are there any special events for adults only that sound interesting? 

Thanks for visiting! Check in regularly for updates.

Kids Sports Ideas

kids sports

 

 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. So we’re a little bit impartial here, cause we love MMA in our house. But genuinely, put your kids into a jiu-jitsu program and watch the little buggers blossom. There’s no punching or kicking in this sport since it’s all self-defence, and it’s legendary for fostering mental and physical strength, determination, self-discipline, and a healthy sense of self-respect. There are mixed martial arts gyms everywhere in Canada, and some take little ones as young as 3 (see our own little Forbes here).

Archery. Only the bravest parents give their kids a bow and arrow, but the popularity of this sport has taken off quickly in the past decade due to Katniss and Legolas.  Kids will need to develop iron-level patience, concentration, stillness, and focus to be successful in this area. Visit www.archery.ca to find out more. 

Water Polo. Finally a break from Marco. What kid doesn’t love the water? But make very sure that yours is already a good swimmer before considering this route. Water polo will certainly increase their swimming skills considerably, along with their aptitude for teamwork and communication. See www.waterpolo.ca.

Futsal. Say what, now? This is a version of indoor soccer, great for the winter months (even though they seem far away right now), held in gymnasiums, using low-bounce balls, and smaller playing areas. This is the only indoor soccer recognized by FIFA and while we’re on that note, Ronaldo, Neymar, and Messi all claim that it impacted their future success. See www.futsalcanada.ca for more information. 

Ninja. This one should be more common, but the Ninja gyms haven’t made their way to Canada at the dizzying speed they’ve been popping up in the US. If you happen to live in or near Woodbridge, Ontario you’re in luck. NINJAZ is an indoor gym with Ninja courses for kids and adults, along with warp walls so you can ‘Beat that wall!”. www.ninjazcanada.com.
