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.
—Beverly Conhiser, Ridgeway
When I promote a new listing on Facebook, I often receive comments from local users like…
Housing prices in Fort Erie have gone crazy. I’ve lived and worked here all my life but I won’t be able to afford to retire here.
How are young families ever supposed to be able to buy their first house?
I’m barely getting by as it is. I’ll never be able to buy a home of my own.
You get the idea.
While concerns about affordable housing are perfectly valid — and I will touch on this later — I thought I’d take a moment to dive into what the average household (or family) can realistically afford in this area.
Brent made the process so easy. Definitely couldn’t have done this without his help! Tomorrow, we move into our first home because of you, Brent, and I couldn’t be more appreciative! Thank you!
—Chantelle S., Ridgeway
Starting last summer, I have been giving away a gift card to redeem at a local business each month.
Typically, the gift card (or gift certificate) has a value of $50 and is redeemable at a local restaurant.
Why host a monthly gift card giveaway, you ask? Well, it…
- …supports local businesses.
- …highlights some of what makes Fort Erie great.
- …rewards my followers.
- …allows me to connect with local residents by email.
I’ll be the first to admit that, with more than 1,000 active realtors in Niagara Region, you could throw a rock in just about any direction and hit one of us.
So, if you’re thinking of selling your home, why should you choose me, Brent Jones, to list it?
In this short article, I intend to answer that very question for you.
This week, between appointments, I gave away 48 Popsicles and 48 ice cream sandwiches at various locations around Fort Erie.
When you’re new in town, it usually doesn’t take long to start picking favorites. And by favorites, of course, I’m referring to where to grab breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even a few drinks in between.
Since moving to town in 2014, my wife and I have tried eating (and drinking) just about everywhere we can. In part, because we love to support local businesses, but mostly because we really like to eat (and drink).
If you happen to enjoy a particular restaurant or bar and it doesn’t appear on this list, it might be because I either…
- haven’t been there enough to form an opinion, or
- I’ve been there and didn’t have a great experience.
In all likelihood, however, I simply forgot to include it. What can I say? For a small town, Fort Erie has a lot of options to choose from.
Here are my top picks (in no particular order).
