Big News!  RBC has cut it’s posted five-year fixed rate by 15 basis points!  This is really good news for all buyers and sellers as we continue on with a much hotter market than we have seen in many years!  RBC has lowered it’s rates from 3.89% to 3.74%.  Mortgage rate comparison website founder Robert McLister says RBC is the first of the Big Six banks to cut its advertised five-year fixed rate after a fall in five-year bond yields.  McLister adds that he expects other big banks to follow suit in the coming day!  Paws crossed and hoping!!!

We’re really excited about our new waterfront listing at 1588 Scenic Narrows Blvd in Cambridge Narrows with 2.4 acres on Washademoak Lake.  MLS # NB018216, asking price $498,000.  This year round cottage is in mint condition inside and out with main floor master with ensuite, stylish crisp white kitchen with quartz counter tops and heated floors, open concept, sunny eating area with water view, large deck, heat pump with A/C plus cozy wood stove!  There is also an over-sized heated garage with finished loft with two large bedrooms, full bath and convenient intercom connected to the main house.  “Dinner is ready!”  Great area for boating, fishing and swimming with deep water anchorage and the boat dock is included!  If we still have this one in the spring when the lake opens, I’ll be visiting to demonstrate my excellent swimming skills while Nicholas shows off his diving!  This scenic rolling property is perfect for families, children, grandchildren and let’s not forget our four-legged furry friends!  I highly recommend it for loads of year-round fun!

  

If you’re at the Canadian Tire National Figure Skating Championships this weekend say hello to Mama and Papa who follow this sport faithfully.  I usually watch it with them on TV but I’m not allowed in Harbour Station and Mama says there’s no chance I could sneak in!

 Gabrielle Daleman in the lead after the short program!

Have a great weekend, button down the hatches as we prepare for a big storm and drive carefully!

We’re excited to announce our new listing at 14 Garrison Drive!  This well-kept four plus one bedroom family home is located in one of the most desirable areas in southern New Brunswick, Hastings Cove!  In a community of well-kept properties, with a fine sandy beach including summertime lifeguard, beautifully renovated elementary school with heated floors, walking/biking trails and close to city and town amenities this location is ideal for families and furry friends alike with lots of children and pets in the neighbourhood!  The stone facade home has an inviting airtight wood-burning fireplace in the main floor family room, stunning custom kitchen with sunny solarium eating area, private treed back yard and large south facing deck.  The garage is over-sized so lots of space to store bicycles & scooters.  Lucky the family moving into this lovely home.

Nicholas has been enjoying his new Canadiana  True North red plaid lumberjack coat with fleecy lining.  He looks pretty sharp and it’s lovely and warm for the little fella who doesn’t have my natural big Newfie coat.  I’ve been wearing my red and white Algonquin scarf which Mama says shows off my shiny black coat.

Happy New Year!  Wishing you good health, happiness and prosperity throughout 2019!  Nicholas and I shared a quiet New Year with Judi, who is like our English Nanny. She is from England with a sweet voice and English accent.  She’s very kind, pleasant and loving and we absolutely love her to pieces!!!  She comes and stays with us when Mama and Papa go out of town.  They were not too far away, just down to the Algonquin and Mama says they could be home in an hour if need be.  They were happy to see some of our friends and clients down there too.  Papa says we’re spoiled  rotten but Mama and Judi say we are always sweet boys and could never be rotten!  We are very good boys for Judi and always “try” to do what she says.  We are careful to walk behind her on the staircase and never rush past.  She is a fantastic cook and makes us some nice homemade goodies.  She plays in the yard with us, takes us for walks and throws the ball for Nicholas, his very favourite thing in the world.  Mama says, no wonder we love her.  When she arrived I gave her a sweet little butterfly kiss on the cheek, which I am very stingy with.  I’m not like Nicholas, giving these kisses out to just anyone but Judi always gets one or more from me each time she stays.  We miss her when she leaves and look forward to her next visit!

 Mama and Papa at the Algonquin New Year’s Eve.

Mama and Charlie look forward to starting up their open houses again now that the holidays are over.  The first will take place in Rothesay, Quispamsis and Millidgeville area.  Watch here and our web site for the upcoming schedule.

We are excited about a new listing coming up in Hastings Cove area of Kennebecasis Park.  It has four bedrooms up, one down, two and a half baths, finished basement, large great room and stunning sunny custom kitchen!  This is such a fantastic location close to the city and all Rothesay/Quispamsis amenities as well.  It’s no wonder it’s so desirable!

I’m glad to be back in the swing of things and look forward to seeing you out and about the town.  Be sure to come over to my bright red truck and say hello to Nicholas and I if you see us in a parking lot, waiting for Mama.  We love  to see you!

Your pal,
