Homeward Bound Newsletter October 2020


Go ahead and give yourself a real treat this month

The month of October is a spectacular time of the year with full transition into the fall season. However, it’s not just the fall season that most people look forward to, but it’s also the Thanksgiving long weekend and Halloween that kids and adults get excited about.   

The Thanksgiving long weekend should be spent with your friends and family who remind you of how appreciative you are to have them. For me, I am grateful that I can assist so many aspiring and seasoned home buyers and sellers.

According to the USA Today, adults spend more on themselves to celebrate Halloween than any other day during the year. I get that. Especially if they want to hang out with the kids to go trick or treating, or to a Halloween party of some kind. 

For many homeowners and home buyers though, they are truly scared.  Scared to death of how in the world are they going to get out of their house and into their next one (the trick). 

My Treat: As a result of working with over hundreds families over a 10-year time span, we have developed a special program to help home sellers and homebuyers. We will guarantee the sale of their present home at a price agreeable to them and in the unlikely event their home does not sell, we’ll buy it. Now that is a how you turn a trick into a real treat. 

A Real Estate Team That Gives Back!

My heart breaks for many young people and families who will not be able to enjoy this fun time of the year out trick or treating or going to Halloween parties.

Positive Mind - Letter of Thanks

This letter is sent with the deepest gratitude and appreciation for your commitment and work that is completed by both organizations (CMHA Peel Dufferin and Peel Regional Police) on a daily basis....

My mother has suffered with mental health issues for more than ten years. She has been homeless, hospitalized and at times completely disconnected from society. It was not until I connected with the Crisis Team in February 2016 that I was able to get my mother the medical attention and quality of life assistance she needs and deserves.

The Crisis team worked with me whenever a crisis presented itself. They were able to coordinate the needs of my mother with the other service providers in the community. The Crisis team, its social workers and the police officers that support them, made their visits professional and were able to provide empathy and assistance. They communicated with my mother in ways that I was not able to. They explained and discussed with her the need for medical care, and why some of her actions were not considered acceptable.

They gave me and my family resources and support programs that we could tap into to allow for us to cope and develop skills necessary for dealing with someone with both mental health and early dementia. It is the nature of the world we live in that we never know how great the people that serve our community are until we need them.

Thank you to all the members of the 24/7 Crisis response team, from the staff at the call centre the social workers who made sure my mother received the service and care she needed. With our sincere gratitude and appreciation for the work you do, that really does go unnoticed, we say thank you.
