TGIF! Interest rates are on the rise – what does this mean for you? We’ve got you covered.

Well – now we know…interest rates are on the rise. Baby steps right now, but nevertheless this will be the latest game changer, and probably the thin end of the wedge.This will be the difference for the “wait & see” buyers sitting on the fence – an increase in mortgage rates makes a much greater impact on the cost of a home than relatively minor price adjustments. If you are a buyer or know someone who is, this is the moment to get a rate hold – have your interest rate capped for the longest available time – then get out there for serious house hunting! If ever there was a time to take advantage of the services of a good, experienced mortgage broker, it is now. Know what your options are and which is the best plan for you.

As our weather becomes colder, please remember those who are in need of some warm clothes. Our Vancouver Real Estate Board annual blanket drive is starting next week. Please bring any blankets, socks, hats, gloves, warm jackets etc to our office and we’ll deliver. If you need us to pick up from you, please call to arrange.

Remember to Like us on our Facebook page, and leave us your comments!

Whatever the weather, we still have you covered.

Enjoy the season – Sheila and Michelle.

George Derby Care Society’s “Plant a Flag Day” – honouring the service and sacrifice of our veterans with our local schoolchildren and teens

Our thoughts today are with our veterans as we prepare for Remembrance Day next Friday. Our local George Derby Veteran’s hospital invited local school children and teens to Plant Canadian flags to honour the service of soldiers past and present. Very proud of our team family member, Ted Hawthorne, for his years of volunteering and advocating on behalf of our soldiers.

Here is the article shared by the British Columbia Regiment Association:

GEORGE DERBY CARE SOCIETY
“PLANT A FLAG DAY”
4 NOVEMBER 2016
It was a perfect morning to start Veterans’ Week, when George Derby Care Facility (“George Derby”) partnered with neighbouring schools, Cariboo Hill Secondary and Armstrong Elementary, to “plant” over 5,000 Canadian Flags on the front lawn and grounds of the facility in order to honour the service and sacrifice of our veterans and to remember our Fallen.
Directors of George Derby, John Buis, RCMP Staff Sergeant Major, and Ted Hawthorne, Honorary Colonel of The BC Regiment (DCO), were on hand to celebrate the occasion and to meet so many supporters of the facility at this very memorable event. As many will, George Derby has proudly served veterans since 1988 and its reputation continues as a “Centre of Excellence.”

Congratulations George Derby for a job well done and for your many years of support of our veterans!
