A Time To Remember.
Whether we know someone personally or we have only heard great stories from others around us, or whether we have seen their faces and heard their names at a Remembrance Day Ceremony, one thing is certain, we owe immense respect and gratitude to all the men and women responsible for peace and freedom.

This year I would also like to pay a special homage to Tam's Dad, Ken Abbotts, a WW2 Navy Veteran. He passed away in 2011 at the age of 88. A gentle soul with quick wit and an appreciation for the truth, Ken was unaware of the meaning of selfish and was always willing to help others. 

And I know that saying 'Thank You' may not be enough as it seems to barely scratch the surface of what I am trying to convey, but it is definitely a start.

So, let's observe a moment of silence at 11 a.m. on November 11... and to all the serving and previous members of our armed forces, Thank you.

The Royal Canadian Legion undertook a project to capture the solemnity and highlight the significance of this period of reflection through the production of a special video appropriately entitled: “Two Minutes of Silence.”
There are two organizations near and dear to our hearts, Special Olympics and the Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS).
We proudly donate a portion of our income from real estate sales to both organizations.

As you probably know, Special Olympics has impacted the lives of its athletes in profound ways, most notably in building self confidence, friendships and self-esteem.

The GTHS is a non-profit charity that operates an animal center serving the south Georgian Bay region by providing shelter for homeless animals and adopting them to caring families.
And remember… Your Referrals Help Continue the Life Changing Work by Special Olympics and The GTHS! We are on a quest to raise $25,000 for these organizations!

This is where you come in… If you or anyone you know is considering making a move, we would like to offer a FREE No Obligation to Sell Consultation.

Simply call me direct at 705-441-5800 or forward my number on.  
Our colleagues from across the Americas came together for both virtual and in-person bike rides to raise funds and awareness for our philanthropic partner and we are proud to share that Saturday's Engel & Völkers Rides for Special Olympics event raised a total of $40,502 for our partners at Special Olympics as they work to create a more inclusive world.

The votes for the 2020 U.S. election have been cast and we all await for the last few votes to be counted in the last few battleground states.

While we may be closer to finding out who the next president of the United States will be, one thing is for certain, this was a very tight race and whoever gets elected will have an impact on the rest of the world, and we will be talking about this election and the next few days for decades to come.
October still showed a sellers market with low inventory but higher number of sales and average sales price than at this time a year ago. I will send a full report separately.

There is no cost or obligation on your part to have an initial meeting and go over what is important to you, what are your needs and wants. As everyone's situation is different, it would be my pleasure to offer you my expertise and advice.

In Flanders Fields The Poppies Blow
Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae, a Canadian Medical Officer during the First World War, was struck by the sight of the red flowers growing on a ravaged battlefield and wrote the Poem “In Flanders Fields”.

Not only would the poem be used at countless memorial ceremonies, and become one of the most famous works of art to emerge from the Great War, but it also inspired the use of the poppy as a Remembrance symbol.

Meet Clava, a small but mighty kitten that caught the attention of the GTHS staff and volunteers right away. Found in a local barn with his mother and two siblings, the medical team noticed something different about this little grey kitten, his back legs were splayed out like the hind legs of a frog.
Click the link below to read Clava's full story and watch him play in action in one of the cutest videos we have seen.
We know that compassion comes in all shapes and sizes – we are cheering for you Clava!

You could call him the good conscience of nature. Sir David Attenborough, now 94, has been advocating for a deeper understanding of the beauty of our planet for 70 consecutive years. Now the extraordinary natural historian has turned into an environmental activist.
