A Great Week For Saskatchewan!

This month we have had some incredible talent in our province! I had the pleasure of attending Oprah in Saskatoon with some of my Century 21 Saskatoon real estate agent colleauges. It was a fantastic event!  Her impact on the world is incredible and her messages are of inspiration. The show was sold out and the audience predominantly women and a few brave men. She had grown women cheering like teenaged girls.

As usual getting in and out of the event at Credit Union Centre was a challenge but it was well worth it. Luckily with a car load of Saskatoon REALTORS(r) we knew some tricks to get into the area quicker than most and we arrived in good time to settle in before Oprah began her motivational speaking. She is charismatic and glamourous but comfortable and charming, likely as she has been entertaining and speaking to us for decades in our living rooms. I am definitely glad I took advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity to see Oprah in Saskatoon.

Just one week later I was lucky enough to attend the Junos in Regina. This was again another once in a lifetime moment for me as I was invited to sit in the SaskTel box with my husband and we had a fabulous view! I even met a Regina Century 21 real estate agent who I have never had the pleasure of meeting before. It was amazing to see the production part of a show like the Junos and how many people it takes to make a show like this go off as seamless as it did. I was a bit envious of the people on the floor as it looked like a fun place to be as the artists walked by to receive or present their awards. We have some great talent in Canada! Michael Buble was a great host and made the event enjoyable and had the audience laughing.

Overall it was a great week for Saskatchewan and a great week for me to do some unique things! As a real estate agent in Saskatoon I tend to work a lot more than I play so this was a great time to slow down and take advantage of what Saskatchewan had to offer. I feel really lucky to have these opportunities and, as Oprah says, be grateful for at least 10 things in your day. I am still grateful to have been able to see her speak so that is just one of the things I am grateful for today.

If you are looking for a real estate agent in Saskatoon consider me to help you with either the sale of your home or the purchase of a home. Have a great day!
