Button down the hatches in preparation for upcoming Hurricane Franklin.  Suppose to skim our coastal shores along the Bay of Fundy mid-week, hitting Nova Scotia more directly.  I don’t even like the rain or windy days, out alone a hurricane.  TG I’ve got a big roof over my front door so I can sneak outside without getting wet.  I know I’m a woos but Mama says that’s okay.

We’ve had a very substantial price drop on our stunning private island listing, Robertson’s Point, Manners Sutton Road, MLS#NB048874.  It just dropped in price from $2,995,000 to $1,995,000.  That’s a million-dollar reduction!  Fantastic price for this 9.36-acre private island.  Rare causeway access and deep-water mooring with groomed trails and breathtaking sunset view.  Call for more details and your private viewing.


I’m staying in high and dry today but tomorrow Mama and I go to Hampton to show a high-end waterfront property there.  As I like to say before I walk my ramp into the back of my SUV, “Road Trip!”

Have a great week and talk soon.

Your pal,

Another super busy week!  As soon as Mama got home from holiday, she hit the ground running!  I’ve been staying right by her side, rather it’s off showing houses and land or late nights on the computer.  We’ve had out of town buyers fly in to view properties, we pick them up at the Hilton Hotel and away we go, we’ve been part of a bidding war (which we won), got all conditions met on a new sale, and listed a 9-unit apartment building.  Whew!  Good thing she came home refreshed and rearing to go.

We’re excited about the 9-unit apartment building because the quality, finish and restoration is not something we usually see in this city.  Owned by an architect with extensive historic knowledge this building has been lovingly cared for and restored by him for the past 25 years.  66 Sydney Street contains a total of nine apartments, five 1-Bedroom and four 2-Bedroom.  The millwork, plaster cornices & medallions & antique light fixtures are all intact.  The electric entrance is upgraded to 400-amp breaker and the roofing has a 50-year warranty.  And that’s just the start.  Check out the details on this web site.

Corner of 66 Sydney Street and 157,159 & 161 Princess Street.

Congratulation to our out-of-town buyers, Ivan and Tatiana, who are excited to be moving to Winnfield Hills with their young family!  They put their best foot forward and won the recent bidding war.  This is a lovely couple with a beautiful family who will be an asset to our community!  Congratulations!  We wish you many years of happy memories in your new home!

Hope you have a great weekend.  As long as the rain hold off I’m having a barbeque!

Talk soon, your pal,

Hope you had a great New Brunswick Day Weekend!  The weather was gorgeous, sunny and warm, great beach weather (nice change after all the rain this summer).  You haven’t heard from me for a little while as Mama was away in Europe with her friend Heather and I’m not comfortable using the computer without her. 🙂   I’m so happy she’s back home and so is Papa.  Lisa came to stay with us for a nice visit while Mama was away, and we really enjoyed it.  She was experimenting with some new dishes that we just loved.  We had some great day trips to St. Martins for lobster rolls and New River Beach for ice cream.  Lisa took a picture of my paw print in the sand (see my signature below). Mama totally missed the strawberry season which was short this year with all the rain.  Our gardens went nuts while she was away, and she couldn’t believe it!!!


She hit the ground running asa she got home with out-of-town buyers flying in from Ontario that day after she landed.  She picked them up at the Hilton and away they went on home tour.  Two days later she was in a bidding war on a prestigious property for another couple in the valley and hasn’t stopped since.

The market is still short on listings, especially high-end or properties in mint condition.  We’re fortunate that we have some to offer and appreciate the interest we have.

I was scared early this morning with the thunder and lightning!  Mama got up early with me so that I wouldn’t be alone.  As soon as I see her face and hear her soothing voice, I feel better.  She’s showing a gorgeous property today in this pouring rain, but she says that it’s a good way to show buyers that there are no leaks or water issues!  The proof is in the pudding.  Personally, I hate the rain and will barely sneak out today for a few minutes under the canopy of the roof over our front entrance.  Then back into my cozy house.

Hope you have a great weekend and continue to enjoy the summer.  I think I’m having a barbeque on Saturday with friends.

Talk soon,

Your pal
