Location, Flooding and Smart Renovations - Workshop Feb 18, 2015

We are thrilled to announce our first training event for 2015: Floods, Funds and Location - Lifestyle Advice for Toronto Home Owners. We will be presenting valuable information that you can then take back to your clients.  

Chris Chopik will be leading this training session. Chris is arguably one of Toronto’s foremost experts when it comes to sustainability and real estate. His expertise is partly derived from his volunteer work as President of the Board of Directors of LEAF , working with governments on energy ratings in homes , and educating the real estate industry about RENEWABLE ENERGY and climate change.

Chris will be presenting three different topics. The goal is to spend 20 minutes talking about each with 10 minutes for questions. 

Location, Location, Location Transit - Valuing Urban Real Estate (Case Study)
We all know that it’s all about location, but what does that really mean? How can you actually calculate the premium that should be paid for a property based on its location? We will be taking a deep dive into a recent study conducted by RBC on this exact question. 

Insurance and Flooding - The New Knob and Tube
Insurance companies are keeping a keen eye on how global warming is affecting claims. We will review 3 major weather events and their impact on your client’s property and insurance policies, and discuss solutions that you can take to your clients. 

Smart Funding for Home Renovations - H.E.L.P. (Toronto's Home Energy Efficiency Loan Program)
