Welcome to the July issue of my eNewsletter!

I hope you had a wonderful long weekend! Canada Day always signals the real start of summer to me.

There is a lot happening this month including  the fantastic Chihuly exhibit at the ROM and the Fringe Festival. You'll find full details below.

If you're following the Toronto real estate market (and it's hard not to!), you'll have noticed that the average price of a property sold in Toronto last month was $775,400. Despite the weather, the market never stops! Don't miss the two listings I am featuring this month! The first is a two storey townhouse in a new condo in Forest Hill, the other an extra large one bedroom suite at Yonge and Summerhill.

Referrals are the best compliment you can give. If you or someone you know, are thinking about selling or buying, please call today!

Adrian, Susie and Meggie's story

Considering that she may be studying for eight or more years, our daughter wanted to buy a condo within a reasonable distance (20 min via public transport) from the University of Toronto, preferably with an emphasis on newer properties around Spadina and Front streets. Meggie needed a one bedroom apartment in the 650 - 800 square feet range in a relatively secure building and a price range from $290K - $320K all in.
