I Need A Vacation!

The real estate market is quite slow in December. So, rather than sit around in Toronto and twiddle my thumbs, I have decided to take a trip to one of those places that most people only dream of going... ....the...

Scandalous!

Every day working in real estate is a learning experience. Adventures ensue, and you never really know what is in store for you on a day-to-day basis. Here's a story about an unexpected circumstance that took place as I was...

What The &*#%!

I have a bone to pick. I'm so frustrated as I sit here at 7:30PM dealing with a sign-back on an offer, as well as the general buying public. Maybe I didn't get my afternoon Tim Horton's coffee. Or maybe I know...

Want a Piece of Advice?

Cover your body in honey and go lay on an ant-farm....that's making yourself "vulnerable"... Or, take your "David Fleming: Open House" signs, put them outside your building, and hold an open house. THAT is making yourself vulnerable! Just when I...

Wanted: Condos For LEASE!

Time and time again, I have heard people talk about how soft the rental market is in Toronto. Tell that to the girl that left her $290/month Waterloo sublet to come and pay $1300/month to live in Toronto! Or how about...

BIDDING WAR….The Conclusion!

"David, is everything alright?" asked two concerned agents as I shouted "Bwwaaaah!" "Uhhhh.....huh...." I replied as I could barely muster out any words. Here are some words: Shocked. Amazed. Dumbfounded. As I logged on to www.torontomls.net this morning and checked...
