Free Real Estate Seminars

Could this be your next home?

Could this be your next home?

I will be co-hosting a series of real estate seminars on Thursday, June 11th at the Juan de Fuca Library, beside the rec centre on the Island Highway. Joining  me are Alexis Mills, a mortgage broker, and Jeremy Kimm, a financial planner, for three different perspectives about buying and selling real estate.

We have two seminars planned for the evening. You can attend one or both, depending on your needs.

Your presenters are:

Tim Ayres – Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty: Tim has a unique approach to real estate, and offers sound, impartial advice to all clients, coaching them along every step of the way. Tim’s no-pressure approach makes his clients feel at ease, empowered, and confident in their real estate transactions.

Alexis Mills – Global Mortgage Corp: Alexis is a true professional in the mortgage world, offering her clients outstanding service and the best rates, bar none. Alexis works incredibly hard on every mortgage, ensuring her clients are matched with the best mortgage product in today’s ever-increasingly complex world of mortgage financing.

Jeremy Kimm, CFP, FMA, Financial Consultant, Investors Group Financial Services Inc.: Jeremy has an enthusiastic, yet straight-forward approach to financial services. From life insurance to long-and-short-term investment planning and more, Jeremy’s friendly deameanor and expert knowledge enables his clients to ensure they have the most effective financial plan going forward.

6:45-8:00pm at the Juan De Fuca Library: Upsizing, Downsizing, Investment, and Vacation Properties. Join us for an informative look at moving up or moving down in the Victoria real estate market, purchasing an investment property, and purchasing a vacation property. You’ll learn about buying and selling strategies, mortgage requirements and innovations to help you save, and about the potential tax consequences and how to avoid them.

8:00-9:00pm at the Juan De Fuca Library: Buying Your First Home. First time buyers drive the real estate market in most areas. They allow the move-up buyers to move up and have been instrumental in kick-starting our real estate market in recent months. How can you take advantage of record-low interest rates, falling real estate prices, and government incentives to purchase your first home? What are the steps involved? How can I save a down payment? This very popular seminar has helped many first-time buyers get into their first homes in the past few years.

You can attend both seminars if you wish!

Seminars are free, but space is limited! Please call Tim at 250-885-0512 or fill in the form below to reserve your seat:

TAG! I’m it – Friday Blog Meme

I’ve seen this one floating around the blogosphere for a week or so now, and was wondering when I’d get hit with it. Well, Matthew Collinge of the 604Homes Blog got me this morning.

A blog meme is kind of like the blog equivalent of a chain letter. There are 8 questions in this one; here we go!

1. Who is your favourite musical artist (post a YouTube video)?

Hard to say, really; I have so many. But I have a lot of respect for Ry Cooder. Being somewhat of an amateur guitarist, it’s hard to find another artist who’s influenced so many other great guitarists, wrote musical scores for films, played session music for so many other artists, and has an incredibly eclectic style, drawing influences from ragtime, folk, blues, soul, gospel, dustbowl, country, even Hawaiian slack-key. Hell, even The Tragically Hip quote “Get Ry Cooder to sing my eulogy” in At The Hundredth Meridian.

Here’s a clip of Ry Cooder’s Feelin’ Bad Blues.

2. Who’s your favourite artist (post a Flickr Photo)?

Probably Van Gogh.

3. Who is your favourite blogger?

I read a lot of blogs, but I think Dad Gone Mad Danny Evans makes me laugh the most. Seems like the kind of Dad I’ll be later in this great adventure.

4. If you could meet anyone, alive or dead, who would it be and what would be the most interesting thing about him or her?

Pierre Trudeau comes to mind. The guy was a rockstar as politicians go. Said what was on his mind, and showed grace through a turbulent time in Canada. I bet he’d have been fun to have a drink with.

There's another dead person I'd like to have met.

5. What did you want to be when you grew up?

I changed my mind a lot. Scientist, writer, lawyer, police officer were all possible career paths for me.


6. What is the most interesting piece of trivia you know?

Well, those that know me well know I’m a repository of useless facts. My dream is to be a contestant on Jeopardy! because I know all those facts would come in handy. The most interesting piece of trivia I know would probably have to be that SCUBA diving has approximately the same accident rate as bowling.

7. If you could live at any point in history, what would it be and why?

Probably the 60’s to late-70’s. The music, social change, and whole counterculture thing would have been awesome to witness first-hand. Most of the music I listen to was written in that time.

Far out!

8. What is the most interesting job you’ve ever held?

For three years I worked aboard cruise ships as a diving/snorkeling/watersports instructor and a shore excursions representative. I think there’s no better way to make sure you never want to go on a cruise later in life than to work aboard one for a few years. It was a fun way to save some money, but I don’t miss it!

There. Done. Now, I know I’m supposed to meme 6 or 8 other people, but I think I’m the last person to get this, so I won’t. Feel free to answer it as a Facebook note, or on your own blog and link to it on the comments.

Have a super weekend!
