Blogging with Buddy, April 20, 2018

Spring is certainly here now, it’s time for RugbyFest!  The sun is shining, sky is blue, temps are rising and RugbyFest 2018 is underway at RNS all weekend with 40 teams competing from across the Atlantic provinces and beyond!  I know when the cars are lined up and down Rothesay Road and the local police are directing traffic up College Hill Road that the games have begun!  Great fun for the entire family!  There is nothing Nicholas and I enjoy more than a good ball game, it’s almost too exciting, more than the little guy can handle since he’s the total ball fanatic.  Now he’s asking for a new rugby ball for his birthday.  But his birthday isn’t until Christmas so he’s trying to get me to ask for one since my birthday is just around the corner in May.  I told him I’d think about cause as much as I love rugby there were a few other items at the top of my list so we’ll see.

This is one of our favourite balls, our Kick-Fetch with grab-hold so that we can grab it and run!  It’s super tough and even I can’t rip it apart!  Nicholas absolutely loves it!

Mama and Charlie are hitting the ground running!  Spring is always this way in the real estate business, when the weather starts to warm buyers get the bug and want to take a closer look.  Some are downsizing, some want one level, families with young children often want two-storey!  Some are upsizing and going for their dream on large private lots and waterfront where they can dock the boat right out front or enjoy a bonfire on their own beach.  One thing is for sure New Brunswickers are on the move!  We’ve had buyers in town in the past two weeks from California, two groups from Vancouver, Toronto and all the way from Dubai!  The locals aren’t letting any dust settle around their feet either as they’re out and about looking for the new place that they will call home!  I don’t know who’s having more fun Mama or Charlie but it’s easy to tell that they love what they do!

Watch for details of Charlie and Mama’s Global Luxury listing, an exquisite 5500 square foot cedar log home on over 35 private acres!!!  Talk about luxury digs!  In-floor hot water heating, 18 foot ceiling in the great room, granite and black cherry custom kitchen, awesome gym,  massive wrap around covered deck, four fireplaces…  the list goes on!  One bedroom on the main level and three additional on the second floor and three 1/2 bathrooms.  This is the avid car-collectors dream with two 30′ x 30′ 3-car log garages with heat, air conditioning and built-in storage and work benches plus a multi car 40 x 50′ heated garage with 10,000 pound hydraulic lift.  Or maybe you’d have other uses for these awesome garages!  This is just a teaser of the luxurious inclusions that come with this special property!  This is what the Budster calls living large!  Stay posted for more!

In a few months the golf courses will be opening with the snow pretty well gone and the grass just barley starting to turn green.  Nicholas and I have been enjoying our daily walks but it’s been so cold that we didn’t really feel like it’s spring!  Today is a bit different, the birds are singing and I’ve got a bit more spring in my step!

Four open houses this weekend!  Two on Saturday, 2-4pm at 6 Fairweather Lane in Rothesay bordering RNS and same time at 82 Nerepis Road in Westfield with panoramic view of Grand Bay.  Then on Sunday our waterfront condos in Drury Cove are open from 2-4pm at 19 and 21 Upper Deck Lane!  Stop by to say “hello”, we look forward to seeing you.  Have a great weekend and talk with you soon.

Your pal,
