Movember and other notable dates

Welcome to November!  Or, what many happy fuzzy faced folks refer to as “Movember”.  It’s the month of the mustache, from the pencil to handlebar, a solid 30 days dedicated to honouring facial hair, and for good reason.  What started as 30 Australian “Mo Bros” back in 2003, has grown to a society of 5 million Bros and Sisters, around the world.  By 2014, the fun loving cause with a purpose had raised over $677 million, funded 832 Men’s Health Projects and was rated number 72 of the top 500 non-governmental organizations in the world.  The cause focuses on four keys areas:  Prostate Cancer, Testicular Cancer, Poor Mental Health and Physical Inactivity.  And this year, they are expanding to include “Move-ember”, challenging folks to get active for 30 days.  So whether you are sporting a new facial do, taking on the physical challenge, or donating to someone who is, Movember is an excellent cause.  For more information, please visit:


Another special day this month is also around the corner.  Mustaches aren’t the only thing people everywhere are wearing this month.  Red poppies sit pinned neatly on coats as we honour the sacrifices and achievements of those who served our country.  To all those of the past, as well as those who currently serve, we are forever grateful for what you do for our incredible country.  November 11this Remembrance Day, many Cities have special services planned at their Municipal or City Halls or Cenotaphs check on line for information on local events.


We’ve been fortunate so far in the lower mainland to enjoy a pretty fantastic fall!  We can go from mowing grass one day to freeing the street drains for fear of being flooded out.  We may start off slightly disgruntled, but that changes the moment we hit the slopes, slip on our skates or build that first snowman.  We are cities and municipalities that move and shake 365 days a year, so make sure to visit my Facebook page for the latest events happening in and around the area!


Our team takes pride in keeping our community up to date on the latest housing market stats and trends.  If you have any questions about the market, or are thinking of buying or selling, we are here to help.  If you know of someone else who is thinking of joining the market, we always appreciate and are never too busy for your referrals.


Happy Movember!
