Happy New Year from John, Kristina & Tarah!

Happy New Year to all of our friends!  Hopefully you had an amazing holiday season filled with lots of food, fun, family, friends, and love! We wanted to give you a recap of our year end because boy oh boy it was an eventful one for all of us here at John Surtees Personal Real Estate Corporation. The question is, where do we start? How about with the arrival of John and Michelle’s new baby boy! It happened on the night of our Customer Appreciation Event at Old Time Christmas in Ladysmith. Tarah, John, and Kristina all met at the 49th Café to set up to host the community and we all had a suspecting feeling that tonight was going to be the night that the arrival of their baby was going to happen. Sure enough we got set up and just after John received the call…GET TO THE HOSPITAL THE BABY IS COMING. So off he went, smile and all, leaving Kristina and Tarah to meet and greet. We both had an amazing time seeing our clients and friends at the event while answering the question “Where is John” many times that evening. Baby Orion Aaron Russell Surtees arrived healthy on December 3, 2016.

So the baby is here, now what? Well, John took some well-deserved time away from the office with his beautiful family and then Tarah left for a month long travelling vacation with her family and friends. She started off on a Hawaiian Cruise and then went on to spend 3 weeks in Australia. While Tarah was soaking up the sun, Kristina packed up her husband, daughter, and a trunk full of suitcases and presents and made her trek back to her snowy home town, Castlegar, BC to spend the holidays with her family.

In all of the hustle and bustle of the season, we are now excited to announce the winners of our draw prize from the Old Time Christmas Client Appreciation Event. Congratulations to Graham Cousins for winning the 4 tickets to the Nanaimo Clippers and dinner for 4 at the Fox & Hound, and congratulations to our runner up, Andrea Ollenberger, who won 4 tickets to a regular season WHL game of her choice. We’d like to thank you all again for joining us at the event, your loyalty is truly appreciated.
