Demand for Blood!

We feel so blessed for all of the support and referrals from our clients and our community. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to do what we love to do every day, which is why we are always actively looking for ways to give back.

Recently, one of our clients had a family member go to the hospital. She was telling Haley that they needed blood, but because of COVID-19, there has been a significant drop in blood donors, so every patient was only being given the bare minimum they required. 

The Canadian Blood Services has had a large spike in appointment cancellations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There is always a demand for blood. The agency says blood donation remains safe and are needed!

Just 1 donation can save up to 3 lives!

Haley and Dwight Donating Blood

After finding this out, Haley and I decided that we needed to go and donate blood. As you may know, our mission as a team is to GO Serve Big, so this was a no brainer. I have donated in the past, but this was Haley's first time. It took less than an hour of our day and Haley also was pleased to find out that you get cookies after! I will continue to donate as I have and Haley had decided to become a regular donor. If you are eligible, we encourage you to take a moment and book an appointment.

To make an appointment to donate, call 1-888-236-6283 or book at blood.ca. Walk-in appointments are also available at all locations.

Declan's Trailer Wish, Make-a-wish granted Declan with his wish in summer 2020
Declan is outgoing and chatty; he loves playing Minecraft, camping and hanging out with his family. He’d like to learn to sit-ski and train his dog Tundra to become a service dog for him. Living with a spinal tumour has paraplegic effects on Declan; his condition impacts all his movements and activities and he lives with chronic pain. Despite this, he is a huge fan of cooking shows and dreams of owning his own restaurant when he gets older. With a vision of doing more camping in his favourite spots, Declan wished for a tent trailer.

When a wish is granted, it does much more than bring joy to a child’s heart. For wish kids like Declan, who are faced with critical illnesses, a wish-come-true provides them with strength to battle through darkness and hope for healthier, happier days ahead.

Helping transform lives, one wish at a time.

5 STAR REVIEWS

My husband and I can honestly say that we were completely satisfied with the service we received through Dwight and his team. From the initial meeting we were impressed with his personal approach, professionalism and honesty. He was very informative and explained his process in a way that definitely showed his expertise in real estate. He was always very responsive in an immediate and friendly manner. We would and will highly recommend Dwight to anyone requiring real estate services. It was a pleasure working with Dwight and Hayley. Thank you for your outstanding 5-star service. ~ Goretti Raposo via RankMyAgent

Dwight's and Haley are an amazing team they've met and exceeded our expectation during this whole process of buying and selling. We are so grateful for all your help. They were quick to answer our calls and book viewings and they made the experience fun.  - Gabriele Bleick via RankMyAgent

Wow! Talk about results! We just listed with Dwight and his team. After the initial consultation he suggested a very specific “plan of attack”. We followed the suggestions of his team and got our house ready. After going up on MLS we rapidly booked three showings for later that afternoon, and the next day... 2 offers! I can not believe the results, and after seeing many properties in our area linger unsold for months I cannot help but appreciate the value of a true real estate agent. Thank you Dwight, Karma, Shelly and everyone who worked with us to sell our home! Offer accepted (more than our asking price) and we cannot be more thrilled. Wow. Just. Wow.  ~ Curtis DeCoste via Google

If you or a friend are thinking about selling, make sure to choose a real estate TEAM you can trust!
 


Did you know that the Government of Canada offers a First-Time Home Buyer Incentive?  The Fist-Time Home Buyer Incentive, also referred to as a Shared Equity Mortgage (SEM)  helps people across Canada purchase their first home. The program offers 5% or 10% of the home’s purchase price to put toward a down payment. This addition to your down payment lowers your mortgage carrying costs, making homeownership more affordable.  You do need to qualify for this incentive and there are repayment terms.  If you would like to learn more about this program to see if it is a fit for you Visit: www.placetocallhome.ca

It's easy to refer those you know considering a selling and/or buying a home.

Not only will they benefit from our award winning service, but we donate a portion of our income on every home sale to the Make-A-Wish Foundation
