While playing some glow in the dark bocce with Wanda and some other friends a few weeks ago, Wanda wondered out loud if a “Backyards of Grey/Bruce” would make a good blog post.Although I agreed that it would, I also had to admit that I didn’t have a lot of photos of backyards other than our own.
But as i looked through my iPhone a few days later, I realized I have a lot of photos of the summer that I have not shared.So, as summer has decided to quickly abandon us, I thought it might be a good time to look back at the summer we had in Grey–Bruce with these photos.
My apologies for another late blog post.It’s amazing how quickly summer can get away from you.One minute you’re celebrating Canada Day, the next you’re getting ready for Summerfolk.Which around these areas signals the beginning of the end of summer.For many, Summerfolk is followed by the Fish Tent (at the Salmon Spectacular), then Labour Day – and that’s it.
Growing up in Owen Sound, I had very little appreciation for its vibrant musical community. Maybe it was because I was rebelling against my musical family – my father and his two siblings have a long history of music in the area.My dad and aunt both played in the Salvation Army Band and the Owen Sound city band.My uncle was a founding member of the Tombstones and plays in many local bands including Sounder and The Bearcats.But despite this family connection, I ignored the local music scene, grew my mullet long and continued listening to Van Halen on my Walkman.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Wanda for the purchase of my new home in Owen Sound and I was extremely satisfied… More with the entire experience. From start to finish she went above and beyond to ensure a smooth transaction.
Wanda showed an exceptional level of knowledge and expertise in the local market. She was very responsive and available to address my questions. I did not feel rushed or pressured.
I absolutely would not hesitate to recommend Wanda to anyone looking for a Realtor in Owen Sound. Like the area, she’s a true gem.
It was a real pleasure working with Wanda. We were just in the thinking stage when we called her, but after listening to… More what she had to say, we listed our home. We had stagers and a professional photographer at our house soon after, and within 3 days of the sign going up we had an offer for exactly what we were asking.
Wanda truly understands how to sell houses. She made the process incredibly easy and her thorough knowledge, not only of general real estate, but of the local market made it a great pleasure throughout the whole process.
Thank you so much Wanda!
I've recently purchased a property in Owen Sound with Wanda as my realtor. The first time I met Wanda was when she… More showed my wife and I the property. We both had very favorable first impressions of Wanda. She was punctual, informative, authentic and personable. The property required significant work which Wanda pointed out clearly as we viewed the property. We decided to put in an offer with several key conditions. We were from out of town and Wanda did a great job getting professionals into the property to address the conditions and firm up the offer. Throughout the buying journey Wanda was an excellent communicator and provided us important information to close the sale and prepare us for our move. I would highly recommend Wanda to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the Owen Sound area.
Wanda ... wow, she's an absolute rock star as far as my husband and I are concerned.
Coming from outside the region… More as we do, we were always going to be super reliant on our local realtor. We were so fortunate that fate, mingled with serendipity, mingled with karma, led us to Wanda.
We could say so many super positive things, as many others have already done, but the main thing for us was how much Wanda *got* us.
She listened deeply and really understood the kind of home we wanted. Her market sense and great networking led us to our new home, which we will love for years to come. Thank you Wanda!
Wanda helped my family purchase our first home and we couldn't be happier with our experience. From our first chat,… More Wanda's experience and professionalism were apparent. Wanda knew what was important to us and made sure to point out schools, daycares, and other services we need as a young family. Wanda's cool confidence left us feeling at ease. Wanda has amazing connections which she happily shared with us. Everything from a mortgage broker, home inspector, lawyer - Wanda has you covered! Being new to Owen Sound, this was incredibly helpful. She checked in often during the process and even stopped by on closing day to welcome us to our new home. I can't say enough about our experience 10/10!
Working with Wanda was a terrific experience. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and I was confident she would… More find us the perfect home, and she did! While we have no plans to move anytime soon we wouldn’t hesitate to use her again and recommend her to everyone we know. You are in great hands with Wanda!
Wanda helped my partner and I purchase our first house. I was first impressed with Wanda’s transparency when I first contacted… More her about a house she was selling that required more work than we were up for as first time home buyers. Because of her honesty, I asked her to help us in finding a home and within a couple weeks we put in an offer on our dream first home. She walked us through every single step of the way and made the process as easy and stress free as possible. She went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable, especially when we moved in our first day. She consistently assured us that she was available for support and that she will continue to be available after we’re moved in if any questions come along. Her kindness also made her lovely to work with. If we decide we need to move someday we will certainly work with her again, but I think it will be a long long time before we will need to because we are so happy in our new home.
Wanda was an absolute pleasure to work with. In addition to being responsive and very informative, Wanda is the epitome of… More professionalism. Her in depth real estate experience is obvious at all levels of our most recent working transaction. She has deep knowledge of the Owen Sound area and leverages her tools and comps to level set reasonable expectations to list our property. I look forward to working with Wanda again and I would recommend her to any of my peers, family or friends.
