    Avoid a $13K Mistake When Buying a Home! | Toronto Real Estate Broker Karen Law

    Hey guys, it’s your Toronto real estate agent here, Karen law. One of the deals I closed earlier this week has a learning lesson from it. So I represented the sellers in this deal and everything worked out smoothly on our end. The issue was with the purchasers, the buyers.

The seller’s lawyer calls me at 3:30 p.m on closing date to inform me that the buyers are $13,000 short of closing. That’s right. They need to find $13,000 in order to get the keys to the property.…

    Land acknowledgements: uncovering an oral history of Tkaronto

    Aahnii, Boozho, Sara Roque n-dish-ni-kaaz, Shebahonaning n-don-jibaa, Tkaronto in-day. Tkaronto, a Mohawk word: The place in the water where the trees are standing. The place where the fish weirs are. My dog and I spend a lot of time walking. It’s my favourite way to move through this city. For me, it’s the meditative action that isn’t about negotiating bike lanes or public transit. But a time to slow down and really try to see the world around me. Concrete sidewalks, parking lots–now covering the rivers and trails that once flowed freely. The Petun, the Huron Wendat, the Haudenosaunee the Anishnaabeg, the Métis, the Mississaugas, all made their homes here.…
