I have listed a new property at 479 Highway 236 in Scotch Village.
Properties like this don't come to market every day - 102 acres of horse heaven, pastures galore, stunning views of the Kennetcook River, and million-dollar sunsets. This fully-finished, 2-storey home has everything you need in a modern farmhouse: large principal rooms for family and friends, from the cozy family room with a wood-burning fireplace to the formal dining room for those memorable meals; an efficient kitchen with center island and large pantry; and a sunny nook with fabulous views for those quieter moments. Rounding out the main floor are a laundry, half bath, and mudroom - essential to any farmhouse! Upstairs are 3 spacious bedrooms - including the principal bedroom with walk-in closet and large en-suite - and the main bath. The fully-finished lower level boasts a media room (movie nights!), a games room, a quiet family room, and a home office with more great views. The farm itself is a horse-lover's dream: 6-stall barn with heated tack room and wash stall, 3 winter run-in shelters, hay storage, an outdoor sand riding ring, and acres of pastures with 2 shade shelters.

Not every day is picture perfect. Despite my rose-colored feed, some days are hectic, some are stressful, and some? They’re just downright hard. No matter your profession or how you spend your days, I know you know what I mean. ⁣

BUT despite the hard days, I wouldn’t trade what I do for anything. I see my job as a privilege—a "get-to." Why? Because I get to be a small part of guiding people HOME – the place they will celebrate holidays, birthdays, and school’s-out-for-summer days; the place they will share laughter, tears, disagreements, and follow-up hugs. ⁣

I mean, when you think about it, HOME is so much more than a pile of wood thrown together with some nails and screws. It’s the place that centers us AND sends us out. I truly feel so lucky that I get to be a part of this point in my clients’ lives. ⁣

I love what I do and my clients are my "Why? Fellow agents, what do you adore about your job? Share below...⁣

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and really, I get the sentiment and all. But I’m guessing whoever said that wasn’t in the market for a new home. The truth is listing photos can only take you so far. Sooner or later, buyers wanna get off their smartphones and get inside some homes. ⁣
Enter showings—one of the most thrilling parts of the entire home buying journey! If you’ve never experienced a home showing, here’s what you can expect. First, though, YOU have a little work to do. ⁣
Before touring a home, make your list of non-negotiables. Take the list with you and refer back to it as you walk around. Fight the urge to get carried away by a home that has lots of bells and whistles but doesn’t meet your punch list.⁣
Next, you schedule a time to meet your agent at the home. Take your time and ask your agent any and all questions that come to your mind. ⁣
Take special note of:⁣
Curb appeal and lawn condition: The property's exterior can easily be overlooked. Pay attention to your first impression of the home. Do you love it, or are you less-than-enthused?⁣
Cleanliness and odor. Use all your senses as you enter the home. Do you smell mold or mildew? Cigarette smoke? Does the air feel damp?⁣
Wall and floor condition: Pay attention to warped floors, watermarks, and cracks in the walls which often point to more significant problems with the house.⁣
Integrated systems and fixtures: Don’t neglect checking out the HVAC, electrical wiring, hot water heater, and other pipes and faucets. ⁣
A showing can last from 15 minutes (if the house is a total dud) to an hour or more (Could it be the one??). Just like most things in life, the more showings you attend, the quicker you’ll be able to determine if a home is right for you. ⁣
Are you ready to get inside some homes you’re scrolling through online? Reach out and let’s set up a time to meet up!⁣

Horses have taught me to be better, be responsible, step outside my comfort zone (still working on this) be willing to give, and LET THEM GO (still working on this one too) be present and focus on the task at hand. Horses have taught me patience; they have made me a better version of myself. Photo of me and Ollie (my current ride @halifax_lancers )#ponies#horses

I have sold a property at 268 Torrington Drive in Halifax.
This classic 1950s one-and-a-half storey home has it all - that desirable retro vibe, a great community close to downtown, amazing curb appeal, and stunning Basin views! Apparent throughout is that quality of days gone by, starting with the large living room with a wood-burning fireplace and original hardwood floors, flowing naturally into the formal dining room, then into the functional kitchen with sold-wood cabinetry and Corian countertops. Adjacent to the the kitchen is a cozy sunroom with vaulted ceiling and skylights, natural beams, a wood stove, three walls of windows, and access to the private patio. Rounding out the main floor are 2 bedrooms, one converted to an accessible living suite, a home office/den (easily converted back to its original function as a third bedroom), and a 4-piece bath radiating that 50s charm complete with avocado green fixtures! Upstairs is the huge principal bedroom with plenty of storage and room enough to add a stunning ensuite, as well as a surprise bonus - a rooftop deck with spectacular views of the Bedford Basin! The partially-finished walkout lower level offers a huge rec room, additional storage, and lots of opportunity for development.
