I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and, despite the recent restrictions, are looking forward to 2022.

It looks as though we'll be looking for more ways to entertain ourselves at home so this month's events blog has some suggestions...and you'll also find some restaurants that will deliver dim sum to your home! Yum!

The Toronto Real Estate Board has released the numbers for December as well as an overall look at 2021. Sales in Toronto were up by 36.8% compared to 2020. So while it makes for a better story when people sell it all in the city and buy a farm in the county, the reality is that more people are moving to, or within, the 416.

The 2022 market has already started! Don't miss my latest listing; a grand and spacious suite steps to the St Lawrence Market at Front and Sherbourne. Two bedrooms, three baths, almost 2,180 square feet and walkable to everything!

As always, I thank you for your past and future business...and any referrals of friends or family you may have are greatly appreciated!
