"The fewer of us out right now, the better, especially for older people and those with compromised immune systems at greater risk from the virus. If you’re young, healthy, and able, running an errand for a neighbour or someone in your community while you’re out is a super-specific, helpful way to give back. Since you don’t want to knock on their door, start by leaving a note with your cell number. Instead of saying “if there’s anything I can do to help, please let me know” try being more direct so they’re more likely to take you up on your offer: 'I’m going to

Spring is slowly arriving, pushing through any fresh snow that dares to fall. Blossoms are appearing through the lingering frost and pavement is emerging under ice. Spring seems to happen slowly in Calgary, and then all at once. 

The start of a new season always ushers in a boost in the real estate market as people make not only seasonal, but physical transitions. Spring is no exception. In fact, it is one of the most popular times for both buyers and sellers to enter the market. Sellers finish their spring cleaning and put out 'for sale' signs, which prompts buyers to begin seriously searching for a new property, which prompts more 'for sale' signs.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! We could all use a bit o' Irish luck these days. Here are some fun facts about everyone's favourite green holiday:

  1. St. Patrick's Day is an official holiday in Ireland! Banks, schools and businesses all shut down so they can celebrate this fun holiday.
  2. "Though we've come to associate kelly green with the Irish and the holiday, the 5th-century saint's official color was "Saint Patrick's blue," a light shade of sky blue.

The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines downsizing as "undergoing a reduction in size." Downsizing is sometimes used as a negative--a company may let go employees when forced to downsize due to a bad bottom line--but sometimes used as a positive--like when we clear out the clutter in our life.
