The weather just gets crazier by the day with snow, rain, severe temperature drops and flash freezing!  Recently so many homes, that have never had a problem have flooded with torrential rains pouring down on top of solid ice.  The water has no where to go and can’t seep into the ground as it would in summer time.  I’m so thankful that our clients didn’t have any problems but we’ve heard of many homes that did.  Did you know that overland flood insurance is available to homeowners and will cover this type of issue?  I understand it’s very reasonably priced between $100 and $200 per year and well worth your peace of mind as our winter weather keeps gets more severe.

Even though the weather is cold buyers are still coming in for jobs and viewing properties as well as locals that have made the decision that they’d like to move.  Nicholas and I would like to congratulate Tyro Cairns on the sale of his beautiful home at 28 Mecklenburg Street MLS# SJ180529 which just sold to newcomers to our city from overseas.  Let me be the first to say “Welcome to Saint John!  Welcome Home.  You’re going to love it here!”  I personally moved here from SPCA in Gatineau Quebec in 2015 and have never looked back.

Open house this Sunday from 2-4 pm at 100 Mount Pleasant Avenue at the corner of Burpee Avenue.  This large gracious has a fabulous interior and large private yard but my favourite things is it’s proximity to Rockwood Park!  With thousands of acres of nature just down the street this is one awesome location!!!  Trails for walking, lakes for swimming, what more can you ask for ?


If you’re out walking, please be careful!!!  Even with my big paws I’m finding it really slippery on the ice and I’m walking very carefully across it.  So many people that I know have fallen in the past few weeks.  It happens so quickly.  Mama has been trying to get Nicholas to slow down a little as he just flies across it, he is so agile and quick.  With all this cold weather, Nicholas really got his new coat just at the right time.  He’s loving it!  Have a good week.

Your pal,
