Vancouver Real Estate – Puts a Smile On!

For the past while world news has generated a mind altering state for many people. During visits to Vancouver homes for sale for pre-inspection or while working with buyers, encountered is a malaise of despair.


The uncertainty of our time has crept into our lives. The worry over future events has stripped the joy from our lives. It seems that we are participants in a robbery where everyone is holding their hands high. It seemed sadly ironic for that which is being robbed nothing more than stuff.

The real materials of life, family, friends, health, relationships, spirituality and yes, even the air we breathe and the water we drink are still in place.


An oft quoted statement is that laughter is the best medicine. While the following may not solve all your problems today, it might just put a smile on your face and help you think of sunnier days.
