“The trees are about to show us how lovely it is to let the dead things go.”

September rewind: The market is heating back up again and I am very excited (and fortunate) to continue working with such amazing clients, many of which I am also happy to call friends. Thank you to everyone who have trusted me when buying, selling or referring a friend this year. Your trust and referrals are truly the core of my business.

Back to school, back to work, welcome back September! With the hustle and bustle of this upcoming fall season, I hope everyone enjoyed the summer we had. To kick-start the busy fall season, RE/MAX got a face-lift! Our brand is constantly looking for new ways to improve and re-innovate. With that being said, we’re looking forward to rolling out fresh new marketing and content to better serve our rockstar clients!

For those of you who aren’t aware, the fall season is the 2nd hottest real estate market right after spring. If you or anyone you know is looking to buy or sell a home, now is the time. Winter is coming…

Our office is excited and prepared to jump start this hot market and take on new clientele, so excitedthat we’re launching new promotions, partnerships and marketing plans that are unparalleled to any other office in this city. What does this mean for you? You and your referrals will be taken care of.

Anna‘s Favourite Cozy Fall Detox Drink!
Those of you who know me, know that I love my ice coffees & lattes, but when I visited Old Port Montreal last Fall, I found a new love at a cute breakfast joint called Chez Suzanne (I would highly recommend going there if you’re in Montreal!).

The drink is a lemon apple cider, it was so tasty & delicious that I had to recreate it myself when I got back home. Turns out it also has many great antioxidants and health benefits & the best part is that you can make it with ingredients you already have!

Ingredients for 1 serving:  

  • 1 glass of hot water
  • 2 tbsp. organic apple cinnamon vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 2 cinnamon sticks & lemon slices
  • Mix everything together and top with lemon slices & cinnamon sticks. Enjoy!
GreenON Installations Program  – NO-COST Thermostat!
My brother recently introduced me to a new program allowing homeowners to save money on energy costs and reduce the carbon footprint of your home with a FREE smart thermostat installation. A GreenON Installations program representative will set up your thermostat and show you how to use it. I thought this was a great incentive so I thought I’d include it in this month’s newsletter.
