The Rocca Sisters Annual Holiday Movie Event Is All About Giving

Excitement and holiday spirit was plentiful this past Saturday, December 9th at SilverCity Oakville as The Rocca Sisters Team hosted their Client Appreciation Christmas Movie Event. Cathy and Tanya Rocca hold this special holiday event as a thank you to their clients for all of their support and referrals throughout the year.

 Approximately 500 past, present and future clients were treated to their choice of three popular movies – Justice League, The Star, and Murder On The Orient Express- while also enjoying free concession combos and even a special visit from Santa!

 With every event, The Rocca Sisters Team designate a local charity to help give back to the community. This year, we appointed our efforts to the McMaster Children’s Hospital. Clients that attended the event were asked to bring along an unwrapped toy in hopes of bringing some joy and a much needed smile to a child this holiday season. We would like to send a HUGE thank you to all our wonderful, generous clients who filled a very large toy bin with donations for these children. In addition to running a toy drive for the McMaster Children’s Hospital, we also ran a Facebook contest on The Rocca Sisters Team Facebook page with the opportunity to win 4 Free Movie Tickets!

 The Rocca Sisters Team throw many events throughout the year, but this event is among our favorites. We consider ourselves very privileged to create long-lasting relationships with our clients and their families. It is from these relationships that we gain the majority of our business – from repeat clients and from our relationships recommending us. With such close ties to our clients and their families, it is wonderful to have the chance to gather during the holidays, to catch up and to show them just how much we appreciate all they have done for us. It is a gift from our family to theirs. We could never have made it to being #1 in Burlington and #3 in Canada for sales production & volume.

Holiday Decorating Tips from staging experts Cathy & Tanya Rocca

pexels-photo-196648.jpegAs we head into the Holiday Season, we at The Rocca Sisters & Associates want to share some helpful Holiday Decorating tips to keep in mind when preparing for all of your warm holiday gatherings! Having your home on the market in December can bring wonderful opportunities. The emotion of the holiday season compliments the emotion of buying and selling. This holiday season, don’t hold back, just follow our tips for decorating and selling!

 

Incorporate Greenery.  Adding fresh greenery to your home for the holidays such as pine, or juniper not only gives your home that pop of colour, but a lovely festive smell that welcomes your guests!

Decorate your Banister. Entice your guests to explore more of your wonderfully decorated home by adding a twist of ribbon, white lights, or garland around your banister.

Display Your Holiday Cards. Laid out nicely on a shelf, or secured to a string with clothespins, your messages of love and holiday wishes can become the perfect display. 

Don’t Forget the Bathroom! A little goes a long way in terms of bathroom décor. By hanging a decorative ornament, or placing a holiday scented candle on the countertop really goes along way and adds that extra touch to impress your guests!

 

Our years of incorporating our Staged & Sold Strategy when selling homes has taught us so much about how to stage your home perfectly for the holidays in a way that suits your own personal style!  “We’re most impressed with Cathy and Tanya’s knowledge of what was necessary to effectively stage our home.

Stay up to date: Interest Rates Likely on Hold Until Spring

The Real Estate Market is a unique, ever-changing market that is constantly exposed to a wide a range of external factors that can affect the processes of both buying and selling. We at The Rocca Sisters & Associates are committed to ensuring our clients stay informed and up to date with changes that affect the Real Estate Market.

The November 16, 2017 CIBC Capital Market Economics Insights Report announced that The Bank of Canada has made the decision to wait until at least April of 2018 to change interest rates. The CIBC Report explains that this delay will allow some time to watch NAFTA negotiations and the direst Q4 GDP data before taking any other steps. The Bank of Canada maintained its target for the overnight rate at 1% on October 25th, saying it expects the recent strength of the Canadian dollar to slow the rise in the pace of inflation. It also pointed to unknowns around NAFTA renegotiations.

The CIBC Capital Market Economics Insights Report explains that since Canada’s fourth-quarter GDP numbers are not out until the spring, the central bank will likely delay another increase at its next announcements in the coming few months. This will also allow more time to monitor NAFTA discussions. Holding interest rates would allow the bank to assess how a breakdown in negotiations would impact business confidence and capital spending, the report says.

The best thing anyone can do right now is speak to a professional like The Rocca Sisters & Associates, and go to the bank and re-evaluate your overall financial situation to see where and how your bank can help you. If you are not working with anyone, The Rocca Sisters & Associates’ partners at CIBC would be happy to talk to you at a time that is good for you.
