The holidays are a great time to buy or sell a home. In fact, last year I wrote offers on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! To pay it forward, “Team Nancy CIR Realty Clothing Drive” will be collecting clean coats, blankets, sleeping bags, gloves, scarves, hats, warm clothing and new socks between now and December 15th. If you have anything you can donate, please let me know and I’ll pop by to pick them up! My clients, Carrie-Lynn & Matt Saville are organizing a collection of new or slightly used artificial Christmas trees and ornaments for those in need. If you have any to donate, please email: carrie_gecko@hotmail.com

Staying on top of technology & the market, I am able to send you every three months a fantastic market report about your area. Didn’t get your report yet? Email me

I also invite you to check out my new website – www.NancyBall.ca with more search tools and real estate information. If you know of anyone thinking of buying or selling, let me know!

Happy Holidays!
