Happy New Brunswick Day!  Hope you get out there and enjoy our beautiful province!  They don’t call it the picture province for nothing!  Rather you’re biking, hiking, swimming,  kayaking, boating, whale watching, camping or sitting back taking in the rays, there is not better place to enjoy a beautiful day than New Brunswick!  You can bet Nicholas and I will be at the beach for a nice swim!  Hope to see you around this weekend.

Buddy Bacon has a few furry friends that he’s looking for highend homes for with really nice yards.  They are all looking for well-built, good quality homes, nice size and a flat lot.  His friend Molly will be coming from overseas and she needs at least a double lot or larger, a fenced yard is nice but Molly can always add a fence.  She would really enjoy a view of the river and prefers the Saint John area of Millidgeville but may look in Rothesay as well.  Molly wants a large home and it can be one storey or two.  His friends Spirit and Special prefer more land so eight acres or more is perferrable and will accept anything up to two hundred acres!  Must have main floor master bedroom suite for their Mama and a ranch style is preferred.  They are great swimmers so waterfront is great but if it’s not on the water they will get a large pond built deep enough for good swimming and diving off a dock.  They prefer to be in Quispamsis, Hampton and as far out as Bloomfield.  Within twenty minutes of Rothesay would be ideal.  The girls are starting to fret as they moved from their gorgeous home last Friday and are in temporary digs for the time being which are okay but the pressure is on.  “Find us a home Buddy!”  All these furry friends are on comfortable budgets, the challange is to find just the right place that they will call home.  “I’m on it girls and Nicholas is helping me.  We’re looking for something that’s Paw Approved”!  If you hear of anything please email me at

We are excited to have sold our luxury listing on Yacht Haven Lane listed Exclusively at $1,490,000.  This is one gorgeous home with outstanding quality of construction!  The inspectors were blown away at the condition and quality with very precise detail inside and out.  Nicholas and I welcome our lovely buyers from Vancouver BC, who are so down to earth and friendly, coming back home to retire near family!  “Welcome back to Saint John, we’re so happy to welcome you home!”

Mama and Charlie are as busy as bees, keeping up a strong steady pace.  Mama had lots of fun this week winning a bidding war on the west side of Saint John off Manawagonish Road.  Never a dull moment when a bidding war is going on in this office.  Congrats Mama!

We are certainly enjoying the sunshine this weekend and are planning a few good refreshing swims.  If you see us at the beach, please come over and say hello.  We might be big but we are very friendly and love meeting new people.  We hoping to get to Riverside Beach on Saturday and New River Beach on Sunday (Carrying Cove Beach for us puppies- Paw Approved).  Talk soon and have a great New Brunswick Day Weekend!

As the real estate market continues to boom in New Brunswick, listing are getting more rare and prices continue to soar!  When will it end?  I don’t think it will end any time soon.  With only approximately 600 listings on the MLS from Sussex to St Stephen including residential, muiltifamily, commercial, building lots and land, the inventory has never been so low with bidding wars so frequent! Even as things calm down and sales stop happening in an hour or a day, I believe the prices will stay stable as the new norm, although the timeline will calm down.  Sellers suffered for decades in this province with home prices far below the national average.  Buyers from other provinces thought we were giving houses away and we practically were!  This is the first time in Mama’s career that she has experienced a seller’s market and it’s as if everything is turned upside down.  Nicholas and I have been practically pulling our hair out as we try to find our good furry friends Special and Spirit their new home.  The girls have to be out in two weeks!!!  We score the MLS system with Mama, looking and looking, then we head out in our red truck to showings with their mother to view properties that meet all the requirements but no luck yet!   If you hear of anyone wanting to sell, we’re looking for something with three acres or more (100 would be great), with or without a house, master and laundry on the main level, waterfront would be nice but not necessary as would a pond but that can always be added, within twenty minutes of Rothesay in any direction.  Can have a nice house, or no house, fixer upper, tear down, need renos or need an addition, or mint condition; we’re wide open.  What’s most important is a nice pice of flat land large enough to afford privacy.  Cash sale, no financing!  Email me at or call Mama unless you speak dog.

Special & Spirit 

We weathered the storm and what a storm is was!!!  Thursday night in the wee hours about 4am Nicholas and I caught the first strikes of lightning out of the corner of our eye and heard the booms of thunder.  We ran full tilt to Mama and Papa’s room.  Nicholas jumped on the bed near the pillows and wrapped himself around Mama and I propelled myself up on the bench to launch myself into the center of the king bed.  Thank God it’s a king because I can tell you it was a bit crowed.  Papa wasn’t impressed but Mama understood that we were scared and did her best to sooth us.  Then the rain poured and poured as it did last night too.  This morning the air was so nice and fresh as we went out and helped Papa feed the birds.  Whew, glad that storm is behind us.

We’re hoping this weekend to get down the New River Beach for a nice refreshing swim!!!  Can’t wait.  Stay safe, continue to wear your mask and have a good weekend.
