Our premier Neighbourhood Network – Event Series by the ilovefalsecreek.com team was held last Tuesday January 17th. We were elated to see the high level of interest from like minded residents and business owners in the area, with over 50 people confirmed for the event, who are wanting to build a strong sense of community together.Arguably one of the main reasons False Creek is so desirable to so many are the local businesses that line the streets, so we created an opportunity for community leaders, businesses, and residents to meet in a social setting to discuss each others passions and roles within our community.
With the generosity of Aqua Sushi Juice Bar and Vinea Wines, guests noshed on sushi platters and sampled a selection of fine Italian wines in a welcoming ambience of music and laughter.
Ann Phelps, member of the Northeast False Creek Park Advisory Board and GM of the infamous Dragon Boat Festival kicked off the presentations, sharing her knowledge of future community changes being put into place. She also gave insights on how the Dragon Boat Festival gives back to the neighbourhood. The next speaker, was a team of mortgage specialists from Verico Paragon Prime Capital Inc. followed, speaking on recent changes in qualifications and rules pertaining to homeowners, future homeowners and investors. Finally, was our very own President of ilovefalsecreek.com, Shaun Carson author of the Real Estate Investment Seminar Series, addressed on how landlords can qualify tenants, based on their investor profile. He also spoke to rental rates and their advantages and disadvantages in retaining good tenants.
The evening closed with attendees leaving with full bellies and full hands with our merchandise and free stuff from TSquared Personal Training and Revolucion Cigar & Fine Gifts, both located in the Yaletown area.
