What a fantastic start to fall with this glorious weather! Mama and Charlie have been busy as bees this month with Charlie bringing the buyer to a close to million dollar home in Millidgeville and Mama getting an accepted offer at her exclusive listing in Rothesay at $985,000. Top that off with a bidding war in Woodleigh Park, closing the lottery home, a multi-unit East, waterfront cottage in St. Martins, waterfront home in Morrisdale and one on Belleisle Bay, it’s been all over the map! They listed and sold 51 Deveber Terrace, Millidgeville MLS# NB033120 within 2 hours which will close Monday! Charlie’s listing, Mama’s sale, $285,000. I’ve been having a time keeping them all straight but they seem to be on top of it. As Mama says “you have to beat the iron while it’s hot”.
We had some real excitement when Ben Scholten and his grew from Scholten Landscaping came by and took our forty foot beach tree that was leaning badly from the hurricane and stood it back up! Yes you are reading this correctly. The tree is higher than our neighbours two-story house and was leaning at about 35 degrees. Everyone said it had to be cut down but Mama didn’t want to lose our privacy so she said no, we’re getting in the expert to take a look! The put three steel anchors in the ground, got out the electric winch and stood that tree right up straight and secured it!!! We watched along with Papa and couldn’t believe our eyes!
Nicholas put up his new autumn flag this week which we picked up at The Feed Store on Rothesay Avenue. We love this place, they are so dog friendly and we get to go right in and view the merchandise. Nicholas almost got kicked out for trying to sample the variety of balls. I said, “who wants a new ball after you slobber all over it Nicholas!” He got the message.
We have two open houses on Sunday between 2 and 4 pm. One at 31 Fox Point Drive, Drury Cove MLS# NB025863 offered at $449,000 listed by our colleague Rod Martens. The buyer of this property now has the option of choosing their own interior colours and the seller will have it painted before closing! How cool is that? You choose and we’ll get it done!
Our second open house is hosted by our friend and colleague David Nicholson the same day and time in Chapel Hill Estates at 11 Alexscot Court, MLS#NB025240. Priced at $399,000 this beautiful bungalow with sunroom and finished daylight basement is great value with $458,000 invested! Hope you can drop by!
Papa had a birthday yesterday and shared his birthday supper with Nicholas and I! We gave him a special card showing our appreciation for all he does for us every day and Lisa surprised him with some awesome gifts sent from Ottawa via Purolator. We were so excited we thought (as usual) that the gifts were for us! There is not much that gets us as excited as the ripping of tissue paper! Nicholas and I will be out and about this weekend walking the trails with Mama and Papa. Mama will be showing some houses but always has time for us boys! Have a great week and we’ll talk soon.
