Chairman’s Trip – Cabo San Lucas

I just got back from the annual Chairman’s trip, this year it was in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It was great to be in one place with the other Chairman’s Club members to talk about what what got us there in the first place. Most of the people who were on this trip I haven’t met before so I really made a point to try and talk to everyone and I made some great connections.


Desert Dune Buggy day trip with John Lawler

The highlight of the trip was definitely going whale watching! We were able to see Humpback Whales breaching on this tour. It was incredible! Happy to cross that off my bucket-list.




Real Estate Tip #13 – Knob and Tube Wiring

This #TipTuesday is something I get excited about because I love Victorian Homes. Knob and Tube Wiring would be something you could find in a house that was built in around the 1940’s. You definitely want to watch this tip video cause maybe you don’t know what it’s all about. Follow me on Instagram @RossHughesOrangeville for more videos like this one.

Real Estate Tip #12 – Home Inspections

This week’s #TipTuesday is all about Home Inspections. Before you are buying or selling a property it’s always a great idea to have one done. This short video will give some of the main things a home inspector will be looking for. If you are looking for more videos like this one follow me on Instagram @RossHughesOrangeville.

Real Estate Tip #10 – Real Estate Gambles

What’s a “gamble” in real estate? How about a home inspection? As a Buyer, do you add the condition of doing one in your offer, and perhaps not win the bidding war? Or do you simply not do one and “hope” the house is ok?
Lately, I’ve been encouraging my seller clients to do a “pre-listing home inspection”. That way the buyers can all share the same report and it takes the “gamble” out of the equation.

Real Estate Tip #9 – Rental Properties

One of my favourite topics in real estate – Rental Properties! In this short video I’ll cover the 3 ways you can make money on a rental property. I don’t want you to think that owning rental properties is all about fixing toilets at midnight, because it’s not. I hope these tips will help you out if you’re thinking of buying a rental property.
