How to be a good neighbor- Part 2

By 179479 on Wednesday, August 16th, 2017 in Uncategorized. No Comments

Five years ago we moved to a wonderful home in South Fork. Living here has given us an experience like none other in having good neighbors. We always have extra kids playing at our house, we’ve had dinners and fires together, block parties, birthday parties and so much more shared. It truly has been an incredible place to live.

 

As I consider what it means to be a good neighbor, I recognize that it’s not just my street or your street, rather our community as a whole that allows us to be a good neighbor. Sure it’s wonderful to get to know people who live near you and it makes it convenient when their kids and your kids play together. Beyond that, being a good neighbor is a state of the heart that extends everywhere we go.

It can begin in the little things like letting another driver into your lane, keeping the door open for others, putting your grocery cart away, letting someone in front of you at the checkout aisle, or buying another person’s coffee or dinner. It can be meeting a new mom at the playground, complimenting someone, and of course it always helps to clean up after your dog.

 

Being a good neighbor means seeking out opportunities to help a person in need, volunteering in our community, speaking kindly and respectfully to kids and teens? Often teens are publicly persecuted for wrong doing. Maybe we could all be a good neighbor by being quick to praise them when they are being kind, respectful and helpful?

 

Being a good neighbor is invaluable on Social Media platforms, especially when so many of our neighborhoods now have social media pages. I love seeing people rave about local organizations who’ve served well and did something extra special to make their day. Whatever page or group you’re a part of, what you say and share has the power to positively impact another person’s day. My wife speaks often about the Leduc Mamas group as local moms are quick to offer loving support and guidance to one another.

 

My point is this, who we are and what we do plays a significant impact in our community. Every positive experience you have is because someone chose to be a good neighbor. They chose to go out of their way to say something or do something nice for you. If it impacted you, imagine how you can do the same for others?

 

Maybe being a good neighbor starts with asking a few questions:

How can I help?

Who can I show kindness to today?

 

If these two simple questions were at the heart of who we are, it’s incredible to think how much greater our community could be as a whole.

 

We all hold the power and ability to raise up one another if we so choose, and in doing so we get to raise up our community at the same time!

How to Be a Good Neighbor-Part 1

By 179479 on Tuesday, August 8th, 2017 in Uncategorized. No Comments

 

 

If you’ve ever lived next door to a not so good neighbor, you know the frustration it can bring. Where ideally, our home is to be a place filled with love and joy, having a bad neighbor can negatively affect home and family life. Caring enough to know your neighbors can positively impact their life and yours, while allowing your community to be a happier place to live. Here’s how you can open the door to being a good neighbor.

 

Introduce yourself. This may seem like the most obvious thing you can do, but how often have we heard of people who live next door to one another and don’t even know their name? This past year our kids changed schools and on the first day when taking our youngest to class, she got to know the student’s names in her pod immediately. Clearly, if you’re going to sit next to someone, it’s a good idea to know their name. Yet how often, do we as adults overlook this major step? Have we lost our desire to care enough about who other people are? Are we too shy to take the first step? Or are we just too busy? Whatever it is, and no matter how long it’s been, introduce yourself. You can even break the ice by admitting how awkward it feels, “I know it’s been 5 years, and I’m sorry I haven’t taken the opportunity to introduce myself. I am ___________.”

 

Be considerate. Our immediate neighbors include many babies, toddlers and young children. From time to time our kids are outside making noise past 9pm. While we don’t want to hold back our kid’s fun, while we also don’t want their noise to be the reason other families don’t get a full night’s sleep. This may mean asking them to come inside earlier than they’d like to or to quiet down a little after a specific time frame. Late night camp fires can be enjoyed without noise levels getting out of control. If you know it’s going to be a louder evening, give your neighbors a warning. Apologize in advance, assure them it won’t happen often. Better yet, invite them to the party!

 

Pets. Noisy and messy pets can be a source of frustration for anyone. Imagine you’re on your deck trying to enjoy a family BBQ, but the dog next store won’t stop barking. It completely changes the atmosphere of dinner. Some dogs bark so loudly you can hardly even carry a conversation nearby. If you’re struggling with your dog’s barking, consider seeking support from a dog trainer.

Secondly, this ought to go without saying; if your pet poops on someone’s lawn, clean it up. End of story.

 

Help one another. I remember being young and my mom asking our neighbors for sugar, milk and butter when a little was needed. Overall, we don’t do this anymore. Have we ever stopped to consider how much extra work and stress this creates? We know families who trade watching kids so they can have date nights. Free babysitting? Yes, please!

We can help with the little things like pulling in our neighbor’s garbage bin, shovelling their walkway or mowing their front lawn. We can help by having their kids over for an hour or taking them to the park so that they can catch up on some house cleaning, run a quick errand, or simply sit in silence. We can help by watching over one another’s home when out of town. Often we hear people say they’re less inclined to offer support as they fear being taken advantage of. This is so very rare. Let’s not hold back from doing good.

 

Share. Have you ever bought an item that was used only once or twice? Rather than spending the $100 or $200 what if you simply borrowed your neighbors instead? I know it can be hard to ask, but I really believe most people have a genuine desire to help, they just don’t get asked. Do you have a garden? If you know you won’t eat everything this season, could you offer some to others? Rather than spending all the extra time and money on doing it all on our own, what if we simply shared what we had and gave our excess?

 

We’ve got more great ideas coming up next week. If you’ve enjoyed our articles, check out our blog at www.WeSellLeduc.com/blog. If you or anyone you know has considered buying or selling a home, give us a call. It’d be our highest honour to serve you!

Modern Trends on a Small Budget

By 179479 on Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017 in Uncategorized. No Comments

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re planning to modernize your home, whether it be to sell or for your own enjoyment, we want to share with you what small details make a big difference, especially if you have a lower budget.

 

Lighting. Though often overlooked, interior lighting is a key aspect of your home. Industrial lighting has become increasingly popular in the past year. With rustic finishes, sleeker, richer tones the industrial variety has the ability to ‘pop out’ with neutral tones and distressed finishes. Commonly we see industrial lighting above islands in the kitchen and in dining areas.

 

If industrial is too dramatic for your preferences, you may consider a minimalist trend which opts for simpler, cleaner designs. These low-profile fixtures focus on geometric designs, neutral colors and clean lines over extravagant form. Commonly, these low-profile fixtures are found in bedrooms or the kitchen. They can also be found in the living areas as lamps or accent pieces.

 

Doors. If you’ve watched any home and garden TV shows, followed Pinterest or Modern Home magazines, you’ve seen the trend with sliding barn doors. Sliding barn doors come in a variety of colors and styles complimented with unique hardware. You can use barn doors to create a central piece in bedroom closets, or pantry or find a space saving solution when a traditional door won’t do. You can re-purpose virtually any door with a barn door. If this an area you’d like to explore and want to hire a local specialist contact Cassana Custom Woodworking & Decor’ at 780-986-7474.

White Cabinetry. More people are taking the time and saving many dollars to repaint their kitchen and bathroom cabinets rather than replacing them. We personally know a few families who have spray painted their once espresso cabinets a bright, beautiful white and they turned out incredible! If this is an area you’d consider doing yourself, be sure to speak to Leduc Wall Fashions for the right paint and sprayer to get the job done well.

Distressed Furniture. Another sure trend to help modernize your home is painting old furniture with chalk paint to create an aged, distressed appeal. One major benefit to chalk paint is that it will cover over just about every surface that you can think of; wood, plastic, tile, glass and more. Like any painting project, there will be some prep work involved so be sure to do research. Again Leduc Wall Fashions could be a great source of support, or if you prefer to hire a project like this out, talk with Teresa Santana at 780-234-4017. She’s a favorite for many local families!

 

Add color.  If you’re one who enjoys neutral colors, you’ll want to add a few well-placed bright pops of color to help bring your decor together. Fresh, bright throw pillows in the living room, a throw rug in your bathroom, a red kettle on your stove or a red blender on the counter. Fresh, bright towels in your kitchen and bathrooms, bright pillows in bedrooms and more. Maybe you spend a little extra on a beautiful piece of artwork. If you missed the art walk last month, check out our good friend Monica Precott’s incredible, local talent on Facebook or Instagram. She offers stunning art work with incredible color and contrasts!
