Small sample size but bullish numbers nonetheless.

Just curious: what does $8,700,000 get you in Kerrisdale that you can’t get elsewhere in the city?

that depends on what you are looking for in a neighbourhood/community. $8.7 will certainly get you different home styles in different location.

that’s probably the most ‘balanced’ comment you have made. if I see any more like this I’ll consider it a trend. 🙂

I’m generally not fond of realtors (surprise, surprise) but I do appreciate your ethics and valuable input. I would definitely consider your services when the time is right.

A trend is forming yet?
