Although many are leery of Friday the 13th, it was my Grampy Wiggins’ lucky day! Every thing good happened to him on this day and he always looked forward to it in his business dealings.  It’s a lucky day for Mama and Charlie too with conditions being met on one of their recent sales today!

I haven’t seen as much of Mama lately as she’s been out and about at showings and listings but she loves what she does and doesn’t seem to mind the long hours that come with the job in springtime.  As she always says, “It beats the alternative!”

Talking about springtime, where is it really?  With below freezing temperatures at night and sometimes in the mornings too, no one in my family seems happy about it except me.  But then again if they had my big double coat they wouldn’t be doing so much bellyaching about it!  The crocuses are up in my garden!!!  My first real sign of spring.  They are on the south side of the property in a protected nook so flowers in this area always pops up first.  So much yard work to do in the spring.  Nicholas and I will continue to supervise Mama and (mostly) Papa as they get our yard shipshape for summer.  He already has the gravel swept off our grass near the street and has started working on the south side.  We bark encouragement every once in awhile to keep him going.

It’s been a rough week for us all especially out Auntie Blue, Uncle Clinton and cousin Myra as we lost our little cousin Lucas on Wednesday.  The little toy Pomeranian was 12 years old and had been struggling with health issues for the past 4 years.  Only the tender loving care of Auntie Blue and the excellent naturopathic care of Bogdan Ciolanescu working together gave Lucas the quality of life he enjoyed for the past four years.  We will all miss our dear little cousin who was always so upbeat and happy, such a feisty little trooper.

 

Two sweet little twins.                   This is Myra on the left & Lucas on the right.

Charlie has two open houses this weekend on Sunday back to back.  From 12:30 to 2:00 he is at 39 Peters Hill Road, Kingston at a lovely side split on 3.14 acres only 10 minutes from Kredl’s Market priced at $214,900.  Then from 2:15 until 4:00 he’s at 41 Kelti Avenue in Hampton at a lovely 5-bedroom, 3 1/2 bath family home with finished basement and inviting covered porch and pool (fun, fun, fun) priced at $324,000.  Stop by for a look and say hello to Charlie for me while you’re there!

Hope you have a great weekend, don’t work too hard in your yard.  Maybe it’s time to fire up the barbeque for the first time this spring although you’ll probably want to eat indoors.  I’m going to suggest it to Papa, paws crossed and hoping!

Your pal,

Another productive week as we sail into April and our busiest season of the year, Spring!  Mama and Charlie are eating their Wheaties and hitting the ground running as they enjoy working with local and out of province buyers as they pick them up at the airport and have what Mama likes to call the whirlwind tour of the city and the valley finding the home of their dreams and making their offer. Last weekends tour was with a new client coming in from Newfoundland and ended up with an accepted offer on a Rothesay home priced in the midrange and this morning their latest buyer flies in from BC for viewings and purchase of a high-end home.  Nicholas, Bella and I are the cheering squad, “Go Mama and Charlie, go!”

We’re all extremely excited about our latest Global Luxury listing which we consider to be our areas most luxurious condominium at 19 Upper Deck Lane, Drury Cove.  We say this not only for the high-end cherry floors, cabinetry and built ins, two fireplaces, two master suites both with walk-in closets and ensuite baths but a most important factor is the 4-car heated garage!!!  This is unheard of for a condo in our area and adds so much to the lifestyle here are not only can you accommodate 2 or more vehicles but also your motorcycles, kayak, bikes, dingy, snowmobile or simply additional storage space.  Showings start Sunday so call and book your private appointment to view quickly and avoid disappointment.

Three open houses this weekend for Mama and Charlie all between 2 and 4pm starting Saturday at 79 Cedar Grove Crescent priced at  $225,000.  A full brick ranch with very private city setting near Rockwood Park and Mount Pleasant Avenue.  Then Sunday, same time at 433 Pelton Road in Millidgeville, priced at $488,500.  This custom home features not only a panoramic view of the river but comes with beach rights on sandy point beach a wonderful fine sand beach!!!  Also on Sunday, we invite you to view 60 Meadow Drive on Darlings Island priced at $560,000.  This is a one of a kind custom cedar home on 2.3 beautifully manicured acres with 2 fireplaces, soaring ceilings and features galore!
