It was a weekend filled with fun and enjoyment as The Rocca Sisters team proudly sponsored Hamilton’s Kids-Fest this past Family Day Weekend.
This event featured fantastic children’s activities including blow-up bouncy castles, exotic animal shows, a colouring contest and giveaways! We were thrilled to provide temporary tattoos and stickers to families who stopped by to see us at our booth!
“Sponsoring community events like Hamilton Kids-Fest is our way to say a big thanks to the community for all of the support you have shown us and for once again making us the #3 Team in all of Canada for Royal LePage,” said Cathy Rocca.
Named Hamilton’s Best Consumer Show for Families, Hamilton’s Kids-Fest is a wonderful opportunity for families to spend some time together on Family Day.

We also have our Sp’EGGtacular Easter event coming up, so get your egg baskets ready for the big hunt! No matter what the forecast, there is something about brightly coloured eggs and an outdoor family event that makes the woes of winter melt away. One of the ways The Rocca Sisters & Associates Team thanks our community is by providing free admission to the Sp’EGG’tacular Easter Event, which will be taking place Saturday, March 24th from 11:00am – 3:00pm at Ireland House Museum on Oakridge Farm.

The year 2018 will undoubtedly be an interesting year for Real Estate, and we at The Rocca Sister & Associates are very excited to see what the Spring Market will have in store! The market is so strong right now with low inventory, Buyers in full force and eager to purchase! We went into January with low inventory as everyone was eager to sell before the Stress Test came into place and levels remain low. This market is the perfect time to list your home! The conditions make for low inventory, less competition, mixed with a large buyer pool setting the stage for a strong early Spring.
Here’s a recap on the winter Market as we look forward to what’s to come in the spring:
