Mazurek & Frost Saturday Home Tours in Powell River Since May 2012 our real estate team has been trying out the "Tour" version of the traditional Open House. Our goal was to make sure more of our sellers were getting the exposure they want, while making it a little more interesting than a traditional Open House.  Why spend two or three hours waiting for clients in one house, when in the same time, you could show four or five houses? The sense of adventure, urgency and fun is built in with bright,  cheerful signs, snappy format and precise timing. We have upped the marketing on this project by creating a website, sending out postcards, creating special signage, advertising on line, brochures at the bank plus banner ads in the newspaper. REALTOR extrordinaire, Neil Frost has been hosting ...

Thank you! Our United Way fundraiser was a success!! Our GREEN MEN/Tailgate/Balloon pooping United Way fundraiser on January 20th was a huge success. Coast Realty along with our partners: Rachelle Ford - RBC Mortgage Specialist and Rob Villani - Villani & Company. We hired the Vancouver Green Men for the Powell River Kings Hockey Game and had a record setting attendance at the game of over 1400 fans! Coast Realtors and staff along with Rob, Rachelle and RBC worked amazingly hard with great enthusiasm and created a wonderful event helped by the great music making of Scout Mountain Blue Grass Band! We were able to raise $4000 for the United Way and have a lot of fun at the same time.

For the past couple months (it feels like longer!) our office has been under renovation. The main office was reconfigured to accomodate the Realtors from two buildings all into one. Wow! what a wonderful job they did too. Come by and visit some time, but here are some photos for anyone too far away to come see us at 4766 Joyce Avenue, Powell River, BC. Don't forget as well, that we still have tickets to the Coast Realty Tailgate Party & Hockey Game Night! The big winner is the United Way of Powell River. The reception area is looking really wonderful with a total facelift from floor to ceiling. Neil Frost is already hard at work, even though he is only partially moved in, and Joan, our admin is programing the copier for us. Come on by for a coffee and tour. The official opening will be ...

Getting to the POINT! – Twitter Writing in Twitter is like the 15 second sound bite on the radio. It has to be good, or the audience will forget you before the next song. 140 characters, that is all you get! In that short message you need to catch someone's attention, promote ideas, amuse, inform or just play. funnyoneliners  My Christmas tree was too big for the car so I had to cut the top off. It wasn't so bad. I always wanted a convertible anyway. I really like the local organizations that use Twitter to let me know about events about to begin or give short links to their latest posts. skookumfood Hello, I would like to remind you about our evening permaculture event coming up this Tuesday. Please join us... fb.me/1wP3g0zYK I follow interesting people with motivating life lessons. z...

December's Season of Celebrations & Sharing - Powell River goes Caroling Singing Christmas carols with friends is a great way to bring the season to your hearts, and to share with your neighbours. Around our neighbourhood we are getting our friends together and singing on doorsteps on the 23rd, with cookies and cocoa for afterwards.

There is a great fund-raiser going on this Saturday, December 17th at 2pm at the Historic Patricia Theatre. Roberta Pearson, Jim Dickson and Santa and Mrs. Claus will be present. Song sheets provided. For more information, interested readers can call 604.483.9345 or www.patriciatheatre.com. And you can get in for a song... or a small donation to keep this beautiful...

December's Season Of Celebrations & Sharing - Filling the Shelves at the Powell River Foodbank I'll be there... with bells on! The students at Brooks Secondary School are asking the community to help them in their "Jingle Jog" to help raise money for the Powell River Food bank. All the money and food donations will be a great help to the needy families and individuals in the Powell River area!

December is the season for celebration and sharing. Powell River is a perfect example of the kind of community that cares for each other throughout the year, but the cold of December really brings out the best. Salvation Army kettles are now in all the malls grocery stores in town. Realtors and other professionals as well as volunteers from all around our city are ringing the bells and encouraging the donations that keep the Salvation Army working in Powell River. Although the Salvation Army feeds and aids people all year, at Christmas time they put together between $11,000 and $15,000 into hampers of food and gifts for families in need. Not only do they distribute hampers, but they also have a great program called "Coats for Kids". This year alone, gently used coats have been handed ou...
