In the last few years, we’ve had a surprising number of people relocating from the U.K. into our area and I’m wondering if I should be running a few ads in something like the London Times or Yorkshire Post?  Most of my clients who have moved over this way, or plan to, tell me that they feel it is getting much more difficult to get ahead or to make ends meet back in the U.K.  They love our countryside, the spirit of Canadians and of course, our comparatively much lower prices for many things including real estate. 

That’s one of the things that I love about my job.  It’s a never ending journey of learning and of meeting new and interesting people.  When Brits are impressed by something for example, they say, “That’s brilliant.”  Don’t you just love it?  Why, it’s brilliant!  I’ve learned that the systems for buying and selling real estate in the U.K. are very different from the systems in Canada.  For example, no deal is a firm sale, guaranteed to close right up until the date of closing itself.  That’s amazing to me and I wonder how people manage when a sale falls through and they are waiting to move into a new home.  The process of helping new immigrants find their way through our system and orient to their new communities has been a special privilege I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy over these past few years.  In addition, many of my “U.K. clients” have become special friends and each one is hardworking, positive, entrepreneurial and a contributing members to their new community.  Brilliant.  They really are.
