President's Report - Summer 2022

By John Popowich | Other articles by John Popowich

I’ve been so looking forward to summer this year and surprise, things just didn’t go the way I planned. First the weather hasn’t been that great. Although we’ve had some nice days, the rain seems to have been dominating.

The Reiss Report: Condo Real Estate Blog - Summer 2022

President and Chapter Report - Summer 2021

By Maureen Hancharyk | Other articles by Maureen Hancharyk

As I write this report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2021, I am amazed at how time flies, especially during a pandemic. They say “time flies when you’re having fun”, and I guess now we can say “time flies during a pandemic”. Most of us have not travelled nor gone to our workplaces or visited with friends and family, but yet, we have adapted and we are getting through it. Challenging and definitely unprecedented! And what lies ahead? Hope and promise, but still lots of uncertainty. Whatever the future holds, we know that we can adapt and we can get through it. We have learned so much and there is much to be grateful for.

President's Report - Spring 2022

By John Popowich | Other articles by John Popowich

“Spring is in the air, I can feel it everywhere. O Yeah, spring is in the air?” I am excited! I am really excited and I hope you are as excited as I am. It is a wonderful feeling. Being cooped up through this pandemic has driven me a little stir crazy and I am excited to get outside and enjoy another great Manitoba spring and summer. With restrictions being relaxed, hopefully we will have a spring and summer like never before.

The Reiss Report: Condo Real Estate Blog - Spring 2021

By Alan Reiss | Other articles by Alan Reiss

IMPRESSIVE CONDO SALES IN 2021

There’s a saying that many of us are familiar with: what a difference a year makes.

Well, the passing of one year has made a huge difference in condo sales. Even though sales in March 2020 were decent, the solid numbers from one year ago were blown away by March 2021 numbers. Once all the dust had settled, March 2021 – there were 397 new listings this year compared to 329 the year previous - this proved to be the best-ever month for condo sales in Winnipeg, with 288 listings being sold.
