Fall is full of so many great things – pumpkins, apple picking, hayrides, Halloween and yummy baked treats…I could go on. The number of Hallmark movies don’t lie, it’s just one of everyone’s favourite times of year to enjoy – especially for the Fall real estate market.
im is a lifelong Clarington resident who has been helping families buy and sell real estate in this amazing community for over 12 years. Kim is focused on the best client experience possible. She believes in supporting her clients from the time they meet to well after the ‘sold’ sign goes up. Kim treats every client like a friend, and every deal like it’s the most important one she’s ever done. Whether it is helping pick paint colours, furniture, art or other design features before you sell or when you’ve moved into your new home, Kim’s modern aesthetic is adaptable to any space. This passion has lead her to develop our own in-house staging brand in 2017 – Ready, Set, Staged. Since then, we have staged dozens and dozens of clients’ homes for the market with a focus on creating a “WOW” first impression for potential buyers. These days, when Kim isn’t fluffing throw pillows, selling homes, finding delicious butter tarts on her real estate adventures or searching her clients’ dream homes, you can find her enjoying quality time with her family , spending time at the cottage, or with her Aussies, Dallas and Montana. And if you’re looking for her, just shout her name in your local Homesense and you just might find her!
Can we tell you a secret? Buying a home is not as easy as House Hunters makes it look. There is not going to be three perfectly lovely homes that tick most of your boxes and a nice, sunset scene unfolding as you agree on one home with your partner over cocktails with your agent.
April is Earth Month, and there is so much work to be done about taking climate action at all levels, but what can we do as individuals to support a better tomorrow?
Now more than ever, it’s important to support our small businesses. Since we can’t necessarily do all the things we would normally do to celebrate the season, we wanted to share how you can make local businesses the centre of your holidays this year, mostly from the comfort of your own home!
Kitchen renovations are almost as infamous for being expensive as they are lengthy. Living in a half-done, half-usable space, while you spend tons of cash on either the DIY supplies or the pros to do it right, is not something we love to recommend to clients or friends…or really anyone who’s sanity we care about! Check out our tips and tricks for freshening.
With the season cooling off, we are all packing on a few extra layers to keep cosy and warm – but what about your house? How do you make it feel cosy at home as the mercury drops? No, we don’t mean you should put a scarf around your chimney or some mittens on the pipes 😂 We’re talking about using decor as a tool to layer inside your home in a way that makes being at home just a little cosier but also a little more beautiful than it was before.
all is upon us! Crunchy leaves underfoot, crisp air, pumpkin spice in the air and hearty soups in our bowls…basically all the things we love wrapped into one fantastic season. With Autumn reaching us in a weird (at the very least) year, and with us not be able to gather with everyone in our lives, we wanted to share some of the amazing family fun available to us right here in Durham, safely, with our Hello Fall Bucket List!
