Weekly Blend: October 18, 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!

Here are my weekly picks:

This Toronto property is going from being a ‘Blockbuster’ to being a block buster.

The Star may not have a compromising video of that city’s mayor, but they do have video of him visiting a new aquarium.

And speaking of water based amusement, look what’s happened to the aquatic centre built for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

This Montreal condo development boasts a Walkscore of 98 out of 100.

Are sit-able cities just as important as walkable cities?

Facebook is building a town. Twitter is expanding into real estate too…and now, Amazon is planning on building a massive bio dome for employees to work and hang out in.

See what other REALTORS® are doing for their communities – like the Medicine Hat REALTORS® Charitable Foundation and their support of the United Way’s Flood Relief efforts.

Learning about real estate starts early in Cobourg…as early as grade 3.

Just off the coast of Newfoundland you’ll find the Fogo Island Inn – winner of a Travel Plus Leisure 2013 Global Vision Award in the culture category.

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.
