For most Canadians, the time for tax returns is the same every year: April 30th. Individuals fill out the appropriate forms in order to report the salient details of the prior fiscal year (so on April 30th, 2019, the taxes being filed will relate to January 1st, 2018 to December 31st, 2018). The tax return is concerned with taxable income and tax credits (and details concerning the two). At the end, you’ll end up with a certain amount owing to the federal government, or an amount to be refunded.
The important, initial year for our story is 1984. IBM was still the world’s foremost computer company, but Macintosh had just aired their famous, hammer-hurling, Ridley Scott-directed “1984”commercial, proclaiming the imminent arrival of the Apple Macintosh personal computer.
UW’s earliest history dates back to 1911, when the Evangelical Lutheran Theological Seminary of Eastern Canada opened to students in Waterloo (and Berlin [Kitchener]). The seminary expanded in 1914 to include non-denominational courses, which were offered under the name Waterloo College School. Before we can see how this small college eventually became UW, we must first meet one of its graduates: Gerald Hagey.
In the early nineteenth century, German speaking Mennonites from Pennsylvania migrated north. Some settled in the area that would go on to become Cambridge, some went further up to Waterloo, some went to the surrounding areas, and some settled in the land that would go on to become Kitchener.
What to Do with Your Current Mortgage When You Buy a New Home?
There’s no question that buying a new home can be an incredibly exciting time. A new home holds the prospect for a great new chapter in your life; it opens up a world of new opportunities for you to explore; and it can be quite rewarding financially, too. In many cases, a new home is the result of years of saving, and perhaps greater financial flexibility.
The word title has quite a few meanings (including honorifics like ‘His or Her Majesty’), but for our purposes, we’re looking at title as a legal term pertaining to property. Straight from Wikipedia: “In property law, a title is a bundle of rights in a piece of property in which a party may own either a legal interest or equitable interest” (Wiki). A title is legal document conferring, proving, and establishing ownership of property.
WRX Property Group is a professional Kitchener-Waterloo-based realty team, part of the Cloud Realty Inc. Brokerage, serving all of Waterloo Region and Wellington County. We are experienced and confident in navigating the world of real estate, and we are distinctly familiar with the local market.
We have a team of full-time realtors, and we offer a full range of services. We believe that you deserve more than just a sign on your lawn, and your home posted to the local MLS board. We are in 2019, not 1998. Marketing your home should be more than just putting up a sign and hosting an Open House.
We are proactive agents, not passive ones who just wait for the phone to ring, and we know that in today’s market in order to get the top value for your home we need to have an aggressive marketing plan.
Our Objectives When Working for You
Market your home to as many qualified buyers as possible, and get as many potential buyers through your home as possible. 97% of buyers search for homes online and our marketing gets your home in front of the right buyers and highly increases your chances of selling.
Pick the right price and help you negotiate the highest possible offer for your home. Pricing your home right is key to getting the most out of your sale. Price it too high and no one will come by, price it too low and you’re leaving money on the table. Price it just right and your home will sell fast and you will maximize your dollar value.
Communicate on a regular basis. The number one complaint clients have about their realtors is a lack of communication once the home is listed. We will communicate with you on a regular basis.
Our Track Record

He is a definition of an awesome realtor. We were so fortunate to have found WRX Property Group when we wanted to buy our home. Mario as our Realtor, helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. He was patient as we had over 30 viewings spanning several weeks and cautioned us about making unreasonable offers when we fell too quickly for overpriced homes. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Mario and his team again.read less

He's very HONEST, which is rare to find, knowledgeable, hard working, and always on top of things. He gave us valuable advice about the houses we saw, whether positive or negative, which was an eye-opener for us. He doesn't just want to make a quick sale, but he sincerely wants the best for his clients. We appreciated working with him, especially his honesty.
George was also very helpful. He agreed to drive to Paris to show us a house there, which was very kind of him. We ended up buying it!
We'd definitely recommend WRX Property Group , especially Mario. Thank you SO MUCH! We're so happy and excited about our new home!read less
