Dear Friends,Here comes the closure of yet another year — and I truly do hope 2019 was full of success, happiness and prosperity for you. With a bright-looking 2020 peeking up around the corner, it’s time to think about the future and set goals for the New Year.
At the end of each December, I like to make a list of goals I accomplished and noteworthy things I did that year. It’s a good reminder of what to be grateful for and inspiration for future resolutions. Give it a try, it comes in handy!
This is the season to celebrate and we’ve got just the perfect idea for you. Read on to find out the must-not-miss events this December — and it’s not just about Christmas!
And, as always, I’m here with the latest stats and real estate information to help you in your search for the perfect home.
If you or anyone you know needs help, please get in touch. I am at your disposal to help.
Happy holidays!Platinum Team

New Year’s Eve
Check out our feature of New Year’s Eve fireworks!
Edmonton is a magical time in the winter, with frosted windows and snow-covered peaks within reach. And December, with all the holiday festivities from Christmas to New Years Eve, is the best month to celebrate.
There’s a lot happening around town, from quaint markets to ballet performances (if you’re in doubt, check out our list of events!) but there’s one place in particular that stands out: New Year’s Eve fireworks.
What is New Year’s Eve without a dash of lights and the bang of firecrackers going off?
And, of course, the best place to see the firework’s display in Edmonton is at the province’s iconic building: the Legislature.
There will be lots of family-friendly activities in the evening, followed by the bright lights starting at 9 PM
9820 107 St., and Capital Plaza
6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Fireworks: 9:00 PM
Don’t forget to bundle up warmly when heading out to watch the lights, there can be lots of waiting around beforehand.
And if the government building isn’t your place to be, try these options instead:
