Hello Friends and Family
This June, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge and my goal is to pedal 100 kilometres throughout the month to fight kids' cancer!
Why am I doing this? Because right now, over 1,400 Canadian children are diagnosed with cancer each year. Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.
The challenge will be tough, but nothing compared to what these brave kids face every day as they fight for their lives and battle this terrible disease.
And so to show my support, I am taking on my own personal challenge to raise $500 to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.
But to achieve my goal, I need your help.
Please support my challenge and join me in the fight to save little lives by making a donation through my fundraising page.
Here's the link to my page: www.greatcyclechallenge.ca/Riders/Michel2Lamon-heggedal
All funds raised will support SickKids Foundation to provide care, develop treatments and find a cure for childhood cancers.
Thank you for your support.

I would like to offer a new pricing structure. Hoping that this will help you financially and maintain or grow your business!

Back Away From the iPhone and Hire a Photographer
by Shannon O'Brien on
Are you really taking photos of your listings with your iPhone? As Dr. Phil says, how’s that working for you?
You caution your sellers about the importance of curb appeal. You counsel them to clean up and maybe even stage the home’s interior. Then you come along, snap some quick photos on your smartphone and slap them on the MLS.
While curb appeal is your client’s responsibility, web appeal is yours. You have one chance to impress – a scant two seconds to grab a buyer’s attention without a photograph and 20 seconds with one. Do iPhone listing photos or those you take with a point-and-shoot camera make optimum use of those valuable seconds?
I get asked all the time whether or not professional photographs, virtual tours or any marketing are worth the money...I know I'm biased, but the answer is undeniably "YES!". Even if the property sells in days you are still showing future clients how you will market their product. This report also shows how you have to capture buyers attention online or else they will just move on to the next home.
This study is from early 2013 on the NAR website it is a 27 page PDF that summarizes online marketing for real estate.
Here are some of the report highlights:
