When Greg is on Vacation Colin takes care of his clients and business. This is what Mr. Hume had to say : "Greg, Colin is really doing an awesome job with this. He negotiated like some kind of nuclear tiger and got the house for $330k, and I never had to wait for info or service despite being added to his work schedule. I am super impressed! You have a worthy heir to your name here. I can only hope for the same with one of my kids"

Sixteen-year old Victoria resident Ann Makosinski was one of the first guests of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon which made its premiere this week.

Makosinski was named the 2013 Google Science Fair winner of the age 15-16 category for her prototype of a flashlight powered by body heat.

The province announced today it will increase the exemption levels for Property Transfer Tax (PTT) to $475,000 effective tomorrow!! (Feb 19, 2014).

The current exemption is up to $425,000 with partial exemptions on purchases between $425,000 - $450,000.
The new range will see a full exemption up to $475,000 and partial up to $500,000.

With prices at high levels, the first time buyer exemption has been missing the mark for many buyers who end up above the threshold anyway; especially in higher priced areas of Vancouver.

PTT is calculated as 1% on the 1st $200,000 of the home value & 2% on the balance and is charged on all residential purchases. 

Currently a first time buyer purchasing a home at $475,000 would have to pay a $7,500 PTT!!

Electricity in the home is so commonplace that it's easy to forget how dangerous it can be. According to the American Institute for Preventive Medicine, an electrical shock can knock you unconscious, cause a serious burn, or even stop your heartbeat.


Fortunately, there are some simple things you can do to reduce the risk.

  • Install safety plugs in outlets that young children can reach.
  • Never plug in anything with a frayed or otherwise damaged power cord.
  • Never use a plugged-in computer, hair dryer, or other electrically-powered item near a filled sink or bathtub. This includes phones with power cords.
  • Never touch anything electrical with wet hands or while standing in water. (Water is a remarkably efficient conductor of electricity.)
  • Always...
