Hi everyone! Happy New Year and here’s to a fresh positive year! By now you should have received your BC property tax assessment letter in the mail. I just want to get this message out there for those homeowners who may have questions.

First of all, these assessments were done back in July, which is almost six months ago, and it doesn't take into consideration any changes that have happened in the market since then.

We appreciate our clients to the fullest and always want them to know that. This year's Client Appreciation Event for any client that bought or sold with us in 2019, that referred a client that bought or sold in 2019, as well as, some of our trusted partners we had the pleasure working with in 2019 was lots of fun.
It was a good time together at White Sails with great food, excellent drinks and splendid company!

Happy Argyle Day. Its kind of a big thing with Dawn if you hadn't noticed. She has been sporting the vibrant argyle vests for years and today it is officially ARGYLE DAY so who better than Dawn Walton & Associates to wish you a very happy argyle day!
The argyle pattern comes from the tartan of Clan Campbell, which originated in Argyll in western Scotland. While this pattern was used by members of Clan Campbell for kilts and plaids, the argyle pattern has been worn in the form of patterned socks by various clans in Scotland from the 17th century.
