It’s *Almost* the Holidays!
This is the one time of year where I find I can really unwind.
The phone doesn’t ring as much, but for good reason — we’re all taking it easy! That said, I’m not sure how quiet this season will be given how busy the last few months have been. I thought we would have seen things slowing down as we entered December, but it hasn’t been the case so far! The real estate market has been nothing short of hot for the detached sector. The demand for detached homes, especially in Airdrie, has far outpaced the supply. Sadly, condos are still lagging far behind. They are sitting on the market for well over 100 days and at very affordable prices. I find it so strange to have two totally different markets within one district.
As we get ready to flip the calendar to 2022, I’m reflecting on the goals I set for myself and my team.
It’s truly been an extraordinary year! Many goals were surpassed, but the one I’m most proud of is our charity goal. I started 2021 with high hopes of raising $10,000 for the Thumbs Up Foundation and I can hardly believe I’m saying this… but we DOUBLED it. Officially, we raised $17,183 but through the ATB Cares program (they match 20% of your donation amount), we brought the total up to $20,522. If you’re ever thinking of donating, check out the ATB Cares program as it really doe s make your money go further.
I don’t know if you heard… but I’m kind of a big deal now. I have been given the green light to write an article every month in the Airdrie Today newspaper. Here’s a link to the one that came out in November. The next one should follow soon!
Do you have a cocktail recipe you’re planning to try out over the holidays? I have really been enjoying margaritas lately and I found this Christmas-themed one! I’ll let you know how it tastes. Oh, and I’ve also discovered a love for tequila now that my 20’s are far behind me. Hit reply if you’re in the same boat (let’s head to Margaritaville together)! It took me a long time, but I’m finally coming around!
Hope you have an amazing holiday season!
PS: we are sending out some festive candles as Christmas gifts this season. If I somehow missed you, please let me know as our elves are busy (and maybe overworked) this holiday season!
Did you know? I publish a monthly article in House & Homes feature in the Airdrie City View (also available online at AirdrieToday.com). Every month, I delve into considerations that Airdrie home buyers and sellers should know about the local real estate market. This is an ever-changing and fast-paced landscape and I’m sharing a front-row seat with you!
