Kites have long been a favourite past time for generation’s young and old. Originally from China, they were made of silk and bamboo. In the past their aerodynamic surface and ability to overcome gravity made them a resourceful tool during rescue missions, military efforts and science discoveries! Today kites can be constructed in different shapes and printed in beautiful designs. They are used for festivals, traditional ceremonies and recreational fun.
On Sunday June 3rd the Rocca Sisters Team are teaming up with The City of Burlington as the Presenting Sponsor of the 27th Annual Kite Festival! This fun filled day will take place from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at Brant Hills Park located at 2300 Duncaster Drive in Burlington. Events like these are our team’s way of saying thank you to the community for all of the support you have shown us, and for making us the #1 Team in Burlington for an eighth consecutive year.
Children are encouraged to bring their creativity as they will have the opportunity to design a free kite of their own through building and decorating (while supplies last). Attendees can also take part in fantastic face painting and community displays. Little ones will enjoy exciting balloon animals and there will be tasty treats to try as you walk through the festival.
Also, make sure to stop by the Rocca Sisters Team tent where you can enter for a chance to win a prize for best kite!
Don’t miss this great opportunity to get the family together and be out in the community. For more information on this and our other upcoming June events, visit our website www.RoccaSisters.ca. We’ll see you there!
Have you noticed the shift towards smaller living spaces? More home buyers are looking to downsize in an effort to simplify their lives. Whether you and your partner experienced a career change, are empty nesters, or looking to simplify we can help.
Furthermore, as nationally recognized Senior Real Estate Specialists (SRES) we are specially trained to lead senior clients in meeting their growing need to nurture a lifestyle change, as sensitive as, downsizing, selling or buying a home.
Below are some benefits to buying a smaller home:
Nothing weighing you down Big spaces require more furniture and decorative pieces to make them look full. Once you move to a smaller home you’ll only need to bring the furniture and decor that is necessary.
Without all the extra clutter there is less upkeep required including cleaning, maintenance and gardening. In a smaller home, residents often find that they have more time to spend with their families.
Not only will the purchases price of your home be less but your energy costs will dip as well. Heating, cooling as well as water can make running a large home costly. Your decision to downsize will not only be eco-friendly, but you’ll be enjoying lower electricity bills, most significantly during the summer and winter months.
We are here to help you make this transition to a smaller home run smoothly. Over the years we enjoyed helping thousands of clients including seniors look for homes that are more suitable to their needs. We share our extensive knowledge with our clients and let them know how to best invest in real estate. This is just one of the many milestones we assist clients through.
For more information about downsizing to a smaller home or about our RSVP Concierge Service, visit www.roccasisters.ca or call us directly at 905-335-4102. We look forward to providing you with an experience that is not just the best, but remarkable!
As we ponder Mother’s Day, we remember with fondness our own mother, Joan, the matriarch and strength of our family. An inspiration in all that we do. We also realize, sometimes with trepidation, that we are now the light for our generation of little ones. We have the profound role of being “mom” to those tiny people that we have brought into the world.
Cathy is proud mother to son Gianluca and daughter Vienna; and Tanya is mother to daughters Quinlan and Alissa. Real Estate is a demanding profession, there is no 9-5, no weekends off. Likewise, motherhood is, as it should be, all encompassing. So we are constantly working on perfecting work-life balance. While there is no way to be a perfect mom, there are a million ways to be a good one. Here are a few tips for our fellow moms in time for Mother’s Day:
- You can’t pour from an empty cup. Take care of yourself first.
- Remember to take time to live life, it will inspire your work
- Schedule your priorities – this will keep you on track
- Make time for serendipity – when the unexpected pops up, go with the flow
- Build your community – friends & family will help you if you just say “please”
- Enjoy the great outdoors – crucial with little ones
- Exercise – make this a priority!
- Bend the rules – that’s right, you’re in charge!
- Say “no” and move on
So to all of the mothers in the world who are juggling the needs of many, you need to feel confident in the choices you make, measure yourself against your goals and feel proud of your achievements. Your children look up to you to provide them with a road map in life, so throw your best self out there, and the universe will reward you.
