Moving from Saskatoon to Collingwood – It’s a Small World

Last week, I had a rather fascinating experience with how small our world really is.  If you look down the right side of this blog, you’ll see a section called Canadian Real Estate Alliance.  It is a collection of perhaps the most proliferous or well known Canadian real estate bloggers.  It was started by Norm Fisher, who is a mega-producing agent in Saskatoon which incidentally, is the hottest real estate market in Canada.  So, over the last year, I have gotten to know him a little through our blogs and our emails back and forth.

Last week, I met some people who will be relocating here from Saskatoon this summer.  They came on a home buying trip and ended up putting an offer in on a house that was accepted conditionally upon them selling their home in Saskatoon.  I mentioned I knew a successful REALTOR® there and low and behold, they had already had Norm in to evaluate their home and agreed that he would be the right listing agent for them.  Pretty strange to be sitting in Collingwood talking about a mutual acquaintance in a big city in another province.  What are the odds?

Oh yeah, another thing.  The home inspector who came to do their inspection?  Yup, from Saskatoon.  Lived for 22 years right around the corner from these folks home.

    Marg, And here I am in Paris, France reading your post and posting a comment that both you and Norm will see! Paris is enchanting as ever, and yesterday I went back to see the street and residence I had lived in as a studene almost exactly 25 years ago! We are staying at the Hotel du Louvre, in front of the Louvre and very central. Cheers! Hilary

    Hi Hilary!!
    Further proof indeed of what a small world it is. I am so happy for you and hope this trip is as magical as it should be for you. I can’t believe you took the time to check the blog and I appreciate hearing from you. Real estate in Oakville must be grinding to a halt without you there. :-)) Have a great time and hello to the family!

    Hi Marg,

    Thanks for the link. “Mega producing?” 🙂

    This was a strange coincidence. Nice folks as well.
