Toronto Skyline Views from 600 feet up

Views of the Toronto skyline from an apartment about 600 feet up. You can see U of T, Queen's Park, and even some of the tallest buildings on Bloor. Can you guess which street this apartment is on?

Fixer Upper with Spooky Basement

From a real fixer upper house I showed earlier this year - the basement was rather spooky! Definitely wore a P100 mask for this one due to a lot of mould in the house.

Geese on Talbot Street

I was showing a condo at 505 Talbot (The Azure building) last week, and parking took a bit longer than usual because these geese had been blocking traffic 😄

Sad Ceiling Fan

This ceiling fan looked quite down and depressed, and my visit seemed to do little to cheer it up LOL. From a house (needing quite a few renovations) that I showed recently.

Unstable House in Hamilton - an Update

I had posted this house on Ferrie Street in Hamilton a few months ago, I had stopped by for a visit after hearing the city had flagged the house as unstable. Since then, the city has spent nearly $295,000 to partially demolish and stabilize the house (which is being billed back to the owner as a property tax lien).

The 2nd photo is how the house looks now.

Balcony view at 35 Southshore Crescent in Stoneycreek; viewed a condo here recently. It's not often you see an apartment condo with a lakefront balcony!

Cool Front Lawn

I saw this nicely decorated front lawn at a house just South of downtown recently - very creative!
