Happy February!

I know it's early, but we're going to plant some seeds in February. No, not in the garden because it's too cold. BUT, this month we celebrate 'Plant the Seeds of Greatness' and I can't find a better reason to get this started because it's also 'International Expect Success' month!!

Shoot for the stars I say, as it beats feeling blue especially in these cold winter months.

It's also:
  • Relationship Wellness Month
  • National Heart Month
  • Bake for Family Fun Month

Feb 1 - Change Your Password Day
Feb 2 - Groundhog Day
Feb 6 - Canadian Maple Syrup Day
Feb 12 - Chinese New Year
Feb 14 - Valentine's Day
Feb 15 - National Flag of Canada Day
Feb 15 - Family Day
Feb 18 - National Drink Wine Day
Feb 24 - Pink Shirt Day

Have a wonderful month!

Now that people are receiving the vaccine for COVID-19, can I expect buying or selling a home to be more like it used to be?


I’m confident that real estate is not the only industry that would sum up 2020 as an unwelcomed roller coaster ride. However, despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, real estate professionals have found safe ways to support those needing to buy and sell real estate.

With vaccines now in transit and inoculation clinics setting up throughout the province, I think everyone is feeling a renewed sense of optimism as we eagerly count down the days until we can ring in the New Year.

It is essential that everyone involved in, or planning, a property purchase or sale in the coming months understand the continued need to understand and follow the advice of medical authorities and government officials when working with real estate salespersons to establish safety protocols for showing or viewing properties, where and when necessary.

This second wave has sent a clear message that the pandemic will continue to present challenges for some time, even with the release of vaccines, broad distribution will take many months.

As we battle the effects of pandemic fatigue, the temptation to skirt and bend the rules on guidelines and recommendations is understandable. Face masks can be uncomfortable and restrictions and protocols inconvenient when trying to buy or sell a property. They are also vital measures needed to protect ourselves, our families and friends from harm and continue to make a difference in the fight to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. Each one of us plays an important part in keeping every one of us safe.

Salespersons and brokerages have learned a lot since the start of the pandemic, and they are well-equipped to facilitate near-touchless transactions for their clients. From offering video calls and 3D virtual tours and walkthroughs to providing digital documents and electronic signature tools, the profession has risen to the challenge in offering virtual services and respecting the need for physical distancing.

RECO continues to encourage vigilance in adhering to the guidance of government and medical authorities and discourage public gatherings wherever and whenever possible until further notice. This includes:

  • NO open houses;
  • Limiting gatherings to permissible limits within regions; and,
  • Reserving showings for only when necessary.

Remembering that we’re all in this together as we brace ourselves for a few more loops in this pandemic roller coaster, will go a long way in working together to keep everyone safe. From everyone at the Real Estate Council of Ontario, have a safe and healthy holiday and a very happy New Year.

Valentine's Day inspired for just the two of you...or the whole family!!



  • 1/2 cup unpopped kernels approx. 16 cups popped popcorn
  • 3 cups red velvet cake crumbs (about 1/4 of a 9x13 cake)
  • 20 oz white chocolate or white melting candy, such as almond bark or disks


  1. Pop the popcorn using an air popper into a large bowl. If you don’t have an air popper you can use 2 bags of microwave popcorn, just make sure you get the lightly salted/buttered or a “natural”.
  2. Melt your white chocolate according to package directions. I use a double boiler for white chocolate.
  3. Pour the melted chocolate over the popcorn and stir to coat completely.
  4. Pour the popcorn onto a waxed paper lined counter and sprinkle with your red velvet crumbs.
  5. Let it dry completely before eating.

Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

This recipe calls for approx. 3 cups red velvet cake crumbs. This doesn’t have to be exact. Use more or less depending on the results you desire.

If you use a boxed mix red velvet cake you will be using about 1/4 of the cake.
