Another Very Unique Building project,

Another Very Unique Building project, designed by a local Architect, Jim Campbell of Rockside Design and built by Custom Builder, RTalbot carpentry, of Creemore.

This project was build just outside of the very picturesque village of Creemore in the hills on prime real estate land. The views from this home are worth a million.

This custom addition and renovation was very extensive and rewarding. The  project ended up with approximately 6000 square feet of beautifully designed living space.

The roof structure you see in the video was about the most challenging of the entire project. It all went well. The roof was large squared timbers in an X pattern with 2" tongue and groove boards on top, plus insulation and ventilation. It was built on the ground and then craned up two storeys. There were four corner points of the walls that the roof sat on. It had to be axact on the ground so that it would sit perfectly in its final resting position. The very cold and windy winter days were just one of the elements that had to be contended with.

The entire project, not just the roof, took just over a year to complete. The home was designed and built to take advantage of the incredible views.

If you are interested in having a home designed and built in the Creemore hills, Mulmur, Collingwood, Grey County, or Wasaga Beach area, call us today. We will help you get the process started. If you need a Design/Architectural firm to get the design started and confirmed, now is a great time to have a free consultation. I will personally walk you through the process. With our many connections and extensive experience we can make sure the project gets done effectively.

So whether you are interested in buying vacant land to build that perfect vacation home, permenant residence or you would like to buy one ready to move into. Call me Joseph Talbot of Remax Clearview Inc. brokerage. I am local and know the area well and what to look for and avoid in a property in the Creemore, Stayner, Collingwood, Mulmur, Blue Mountains, Wasaga Beach and Grey County areas.
I look forward to meeting with you.
Have a terrific and successful New Years.
All the best to you and your family.

Seeing as we are in this together;

I figure, I might as well do the best that I can. So my goal here at Remax Clearview Inc.,  is to provide you with the very best service that I can. You likely would want someone with great experience and specialized education in Real Estate and building. Not all Agents are created with the same Expertise in the field.

Well that is why I am striving to achieve designations. Just so you know that when you work with me you are getting someone with the skills and knowledge, in the industry, that matter. I now have four designations to serve you better. I strive to increase our position in the Real Estate transaction.

It does not matter to me whether you are buying or selling a property worth more then a Million or one that is worth less than 100 k. It is all the same to me, when it comes to service. I take pride in who I am and what I do as a professional. So why should you care? Well, I'm glad you asked.

Following is a short description of what all these designation mean for you.

            Provided and taught by the The Real Estate Academy Inc.
            In short, what this means is that I have been trained to work professionally with
            the mature or senior demographic. Helping seniors or the boomers plus, can
            involve alot of extra care and knowledge. Items such as wills, estates,
            probate, downsizing, Universal Design and transitioning from one residence to another
            come into the grand picture. This all requires someone with special knowledge and
            experience and not all agents have it.


              Provided and taught by the National Association of REALTORS, this
              designation is similar to ASA. Designed to educate agents how to help 
              deal with the Senior market and their families with professionalism and
              consideration. There are more items to deal with when working with the
              50 plus buyer or seller and their families.


            Provided by the National Association of Green Agents and Brokers, this
            emcompasses professional training on ENERGY EFFICIENCY of a home.
            How does this translate to you as a seller or buyer? It helps me determine
            ways to help you to save money in your hydro usage & gas comsumption, ways
            to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, and
            ways to keep your home safe and healthy.


             Provided by the National Association of REALTORS, this course helps
             to improve an agent's negotiating and positioning skills for their buyers, 
             enabling the buyer to reap the benefits of the professional training and
             experience of the ABR, while treating the seller fairly and with respect.

How does this all help you? Well, information is worth alot when it come to dealing in real estate. Having an agent that is well informed and comes with special designations is well worth the time spent on your behalf.

Remember not all agents are trained the same. Not all agents upgrade their knowledge with designations or skills that are relevant. I want to be on your side, helping you when you buy or sell a home.

From the first time we meet and we commit to a business relationship, we are in it together until we finish to deal. But that is still not the end, most of my clients choose to be a part of my Client Appreciation Program.

So whether you are buying or selling a home in the Stayner, Creemore, Collingwood, Wasaga Beach, Mulmur, Town of Blue Mountain or Grey Highlands areas, contact me as soon as possible.

I provide fast, competent service that helps you leverage your position in the Real Estate deal.  You deserve great service.

Also if you are interested in near future in buying or selling a property, why not call me and become part of my Client appreciation program? Very valuable information is sent out on a regular basis, by mail or email. This is a free service. Be informed in advance!

Thank you very much for taking time out of your busy day to read this.

All the best and Merry Christmas and Happy New Years.

December in Paradise!

Old Man Winter really isn't sure whether he wants to send us a green or white Christmas so we've really enjoyed multiple seasons this month.  This area is beautiful in all seasons! 

Wildlife can be found all year long too.  Check out some winter photos taken in Clearview here.
