“When you take the time to nurture a seed you can unlock its potential to grow.”

Rommina Cortellucci

Take a journey outdoors and explore the beauty within our Canadian landscape. I encourage you to do more things that make you forget to check your phone. In doing so, check in with yourself. It is through these quick mediations, we can reset our life and well-being.

Our mental and physical health are so intertwined and require maintenance throughout the year just as a home would. A spring cleaning helps to declutter
a chaotic home. By ridding a space of excess material goods we create efficient spaces. Remove any baggage with the power to drain your energy.
Finally, remember words have power. If speaking kindly to plants helps them grow, imagine what speaking kindly to humans can do. A daily practice of positivity allows us to cultivate a kind heart within ourselves and each other. When you take the time to nurture a seed you can unlock its potential to grow.

Our Cortel supporters allow us the opportunity to plant our seeds, through positive reinforcement and investment in our projects. As I look outside, the Nord Condos site is rising from the earth and growing daily. For this we are forever grateful, your belief in our projects allows a positive environment for your future home.

Spring Refresh

Sunnier days are here to stay! As nature continues to bloom we now approach life with a brightened disposition and a reenergized state. At this time the word meraki [may-rah-kee] comes to mind. The definition of meraki is to do something with your soul, creativity, or love. In other words, to put “something of yourself” in your work or project, whatever it may be.

Feeling rejuvenated will now allow you to get outdoors and stay active. Catch up on long forgotten New Year’s resolutions. Take on hobbies or creative projects once more with a fresh mind and direction. Use the fresh air and take time to enjoy Mother Nature, whether through your backyard, balcony or neighbourhood parks and trails. Perhaps, consider refreshing and preparing your home for the summer months and BBQ season!

Here at Cortel we are also taking a meraki approach and are pleased to announce the great strides we are making in all our projects. Activity is afoot in Nord Condos & Towns in Vaughan and Oak & Co in Oakville.

Condo Living and Electric Vehicles

Ever since their introduction to the marketplace, electric vehicle (EV) demand has continued to climb. According to plugndrive.ca, “In 2017, electric vehicle sales in Canada experienced a 56% growth increase and this upward trend is expected to continue.” The Cortel Group recognizes the demographic for both condominium owners and intenders, and electric vehicles leans towards young couples and urban professionals.

When you have both these groups considering both EV and condo living, there are several factors to consider. If this is you, read more on the Cortel Group blog page - Condo Living and Electric Cars.
