Kindness Tour 2022

In February 2022, we launched our 6th annual KINDNESS TOUR. This charitable initiative was launched by Alex Irish in February, 2017. Over the course of 28 days we are privileged to touch many people’s lives with ‘random acts of kindness’. Positive feedback inspired us to make this an annual event!

We believe in supporting charitable causes and worthy organizations in Oakville, Burlington, Mississauga, Hamilton and beyond – where we list and sell homes. Details about the 6th edition of our Kindness Tour will be posted below and on social media throughout the month. It is our hope, that through these posts, we may inspire others to learn more about the need in our communities.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our valued clients, friends and team members for their support of the 2022 edition of our Kindness Tour!
