Our 1st event about Downsizing at the West Vancover Library was a great success. Joe Cutura from Origin Mortages talked about the new mortage rules and how you need to understand them. He also busted myths about reverse mortgages and explained how you can use them to your advantage in lots of situations.

Maryam Badie shared the latest North Shore Real Estate stats with our audience, with examples of what your dollors can buy you in other markets.

My role was the converations and decisions that arise around downsizing and how to navigate them, whether it's you and your spouse or a parent thinking about making the move.

Our little dark chocolate houses from Charlies Chocolate Factory were a great hit and we had two lucky winners in our Everything Wine gift card draw.

Our next event will be 7pm - June 26th at the new Delbrook Community Centre. Hope to see you there! Call 604.837.5048 for more details.
