Yesterday, I organized a bottle drive that spanned Fort Erie, Ridgeway, and Stevensville, in support of frontline healthcare workers.
Between 10 am and 4 pm this Monday, June 8, 2020, I will be collecting empty beer, wine, and liquor containers to donate to frontline healthcare workers at Douglas Memorial Hospital via The Beer Store.
Here is how to participate:
In light of the COVID-19 health crisis, I have decided to do something similar.
Make an online donation to Fort Erie Meals on Wheels and receive a free The Fort Erie Podcast tee shirt (while supplies last).
Here’s how it works:
We cannot express enough how professional, friendly and diligent [Brent has] been…I would highly recommend [him] to anyone.

Less than three weeks ago, I easily crossed the border to pick up my wife from the Buffalo airport. She was returning from a conference in Orlando.
At the time, there were no provisions in place (that I’m aware of) for self-isolation following international travel.
Less than two weeks ago, restaurants were open for business, and I had sushi in Grimsby with a friend of mine.
And, just this past week, I was optimistic for the impending spring real estate market.
Sure, the spring rush would be delayed due to the pandemic, but I was positive it was just around the corner. In fact, those of you on my mailing list got an email from me that contained the following excerpt:
The spring market I’ve been talking about for weeks is being pushed back because of coronavirus.
Regardless, buyers still need a place to live, so what we have on our hands at the moment is an extreme sellers’ market.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, if you are thinking of selling your home this year, now (believe it or not) is the time to do it.
Since then, a lot has happened.
When I decided to sell my home, Brent walked me through the entire process and kept me informed of every step. Brent lives and breathes real estate and is extremely informed. Couldn’t be happier selling with Brent.

In every two-year registration period, realtors in Ontario are required to complete courses in continuing education.
In my first two years as a registrant with RECO — known as my “provisional” period — I was required to complete one elective (articling) course through the OREA Real Estate College. My choices included:
- Principles of Appraisal
- Real Estate Investment Analysis
- Principles of Mortgage Financing
- Principles of Property Management
In the end, I decided to take Principles of Mortgage Financing.
I cannot rave enough about working with Brent. He’s the most self-motivated, hard-working realtor I’ve ever worked with and…bringing on Brent to sell your home is like hiring an experienced marketing agency. He’s an active advocate that keeps you in the loop with regular texts, emails, educational reports and more. Brent listened to me, shared frank and honest feedback with me, and worked for me to get my house sold. I could not be happier that I chose Brent and gladly recommend him to everyone I know.

Brent listened to what we wanted, knew our circumstances and worked hard to get us what we needed! We now have a beautiful home we love!
