I’ve been searching for the sun and it’s finally come out!  Good thing because our flowers and hanging baskets were starting to mildew.  Nicholas and I spent a lot of time with Mama in late spring as she planted all these gorgeous planters and we were starting to get worried that they would wilt away in the fog.

Once the sun comes out you know where we like to head, especially on the weekends!  The BEACH!  New Brunswick has the best beaches and we really don’t care which one we go to as long as I can swim.  Nicholas loves to swim in the fresh water as it’s so much warmer, especially this year!

Mama and Charlie have been busy showing properties this week (Mama with residential and Charlie with both residential and commercial).  They are both in the middle of negotiating offers this weekend.  The market is super hot but they can handle it!

We have a fabulous new Global Luxury listing coming up in the next two weeks with a gorgeous one-piece, salt-water pool.  How much would I love to show off my swimming skills there.  This property is a spacious ranch-style with finished walkout basement within walking distance to both French and English middle schools and a bike ride to elementary.  Features include impressive main level master with 5-piece spa-like ensuite, open concept great room, dining & quartz kitchen, absolutely awesome pantry, oversized bedrooms with Jack & Jill bath, home theatre, wine cellar, gym, family room/rec room with wet bar, heat pump, oversized 3-car garage, etc. etc. etc.  I’ll keep you posted as we get ready to go live on the market!

Hope you have a great week.  Keep an eye out for me in my red truck as business’ & shops open Nicholas and I are out and about more!

Well we are excited about a few things!  First the sale of 96 Prince of Wales Street, St Andrews MLS#NB035098 offered at $1,680,000.  This handsome property, a Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Listing with Mama, breaks a new record for New Brunswick as the highest sale in history of a non-waterfront property.  Congratulations to the buyers and sellers!  So much to enjoy right across the street from the gorgeous Algonquin Resort. on 6.89 acres Nicholas and I could have had all kinds of fun on this large property.

Second Nicholas and I had a great visit to Mama’s new listing at 2 Pleasant Avenue, Quispamsis.  MLS #NB045216 offered at $845,000.  On 1.09 acres this property is totally fenced with rolling lawn, mature perennial garden and a wooded area complete with trails.  We had a ball exploring the woods.  We both had a good roll on the lawn, checked out the walkways and had a sniff at the beautifully fragrant flowers.  The wrought iron fencing means your children or four-legged furry friends won’t be able to leave the property so no worry about accidents here.  And we can tell them, “If you’re going to be locked in a yard, this is THE one you want to be locked up in!!!  It’s fantastic, just this side of Heaven and paw approved!”

Let me tell you the house isn’t too shabby either and built to extremely high standards !!!  You should have heard Mama oohing and awing over the green house and what she calls the home-chef’s dream kitchen complete with heated floor, high-end appliances and a wood-burning fireplace!  Then Papa chipped in about the library, main floor bedroom, 3-car garage and the work shop.  Great location just 5 minutes to the shops and markets of Main Street in Quispamsis or the Rothesay Common.  From all I’m seeing and hearing this is one you should probably take a closer look at.


Charlie listed a beautiful house this week in mint condition in Millidgeville at 42 Secoudon Drive near the ferry.  MLS# NB045473 offered at $399,000.  It has four bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths, huge sunny windows, fireplace, huge deck and an awesome kitchen!  We expect this beauty will fly off the shelf!

It’s been a weird weekend staying inside with the rain pouring down but the lawns and gardens really need it so it was a welcome sight even though it interfered with our daily walks.  We just worked around it going earlier than usual when a break came in the weather.  Have a great week and we hope to see you really soon.
