Quick Tip!  

Paint Your Home
like a Pro!

Paint like a Pro!

Painting your home can be a lot of work but it can also be very rewarding when you stand back to admire the fruits of your labour.

Tips to Paint like a Pro:
1) Lay drop cloths
2) Tape window frame edges
3) Apply a white/off-white primer coat or one even closer to the colour you’ve chosen.
4) Review paint colour options
5) Roll paint in broad sections
6) Finish corners with a brush
7) Apply a second coat

Remember to always start with a clean flat surface and never paint over wallpaper or peeling paint.
80% of the work of painting your home is 
in the preparation!

Welcome to “Love Your Home”

As a business that quite honestly puts people and our clients above profit, I wish we could trust everyone to give us a fair and honest deal (good customer service). However, since that’s not happening any time soon, I make it my personal mission to make sure that my clients are told the absolute truth Home Falling Apartabout their potential home purchases. This month, we talk about why having someone on your side can make all the difference…

We also showcase a real world example of what our team discovered when a trusting home buyer assumed too much and got taken by an incapable and outright dishonest “know-nothing” builder.

Loose Shingles

Joy quickly turned to horror when a brand new home started unravelling like a ball of wool before the home buyer’s eyes…


Can a Business Care Too Much?


I’ve been wondering lately if we actually care too much about our Clients, following a deep discussion

on the subject, recently…

“Care / Caring” = concern / responsibility / protecting / compassionate / feeling and 
exhibiting concern for others…
