Weekly Blend: May 31, 2013

Each week, the Weekly Blend will feature interesting links to real estate news, tidbits or topics of interest you can enjoy with your favourite cup of coffee. It may even become a great conversation starter at your next client meeting. Happy reading!

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.
