Guess the listing


They’re in your favourite books. They can be found in old and new sitcoms, movies and dramas and sometimes they are as important to the story as the living, breathing people who inhabit them. I’m talking about famous fictional homes, commercial properties and apartments.  Television shows like ‘Little House on The Prairie’  and ‘House’ have the word house right there in the title (although,  ‘House’ was not at all about a single-family dwelling). Movies like ‘The Money Pit,’ ‘House at the End of the Street,’ and ‘Hotel Transylvania’ have also featured homes as some of the main characters.

So, how well do you know your fictional properties? Below are five short descriptions that a REALTOR® might bring to the attention of interested buyers. Can you identify them?

Commercial Listing

Just steps down off of Beacon Street this exceptionally well located bar is right in the heart of the city and just below one of the town’s most popular seafood restaurants. Front room seats 50 + (including seating at the bar) with back room fully equipped for small parties and billiard or dart tournaments. Private office, raised nook and easy access to above restaurant. Seller insists that one seat at the far end of the bar be reserved for regular customer. Serious inquiries only. Baseball fans preferred.

Apartment Listing

This two bedroom fourth floor apartment located just blocks from Pasadena City Hall (and close to a Chevron station) has a spectacular view of downtown as well as roof access for amateur astronomers to do their stargazing. The five storey apartment building has only 16 units and a fully equipped basement laundry room. Seller must disclose that the elevator hasn’t worked in several years so buyer must be in good shape as daily use of stairs is expected.

Jonathan Baker, our former Speech Writer, contributed to the development of speeches, advertisements, and communications to our membership. Our staff knew him as the go-to guy at 200 Catherine for some comic relief. Prior to joining CREA, Jon worked in the radio industry in Ottawa. If you meet Jon, be sure to ask him to tell you about his encounters with many famous musicians while volunteering at a local music festival for more than 10 years.
