Trusted Saskatoon Real Estate Agent Kari Calder Awarded CENTURY 21 Golden Heart Award

Support of local families living with disabilities gains Trusted Saskatoon REALTOR® Kari Calder an award!

Incredible community dedication honoured by CENTURY 21 Canada and Easter Seals Canada 

Trusted Saskatoon REALTOR® Kari Calder has given Easter Seals kids the experience of a lifetime: a week-long trip to a fully accessible summer camp. By raising over $2,100 this year, Calder is inducted into the 2017 C21® Kids to Camp Club and receives the CENTURY 21 Golden Heart Award.

Besides recognition, Calder will be connected with a camper who will share their personal experience, to provide a firsthand story of the donation’s impact. The club’s mission is to provide more kids with life-changing camp memories by increasing awareness and inspiring fundraising within CENTURY 21 offices.

“I know this program will definitely give many bright campers a wonderful future. In fact, as I write this, I am heading to Easter Seals Camp Rotary to take the leadership training program. This will help teach me the skills I will need as I look at future job opportunities,” said 15 year old Brandon Liston, Easter Seals national ambassador. “I am sure this is the case for many others like me and it is all because of people like Kari – and the Kids to Camp Club!”

Easter Seals will highlight Calder on a special installation at their local camp and nationally in the organization’s annual report. As well, they will be sent invites to special Easter Seals’ events as an honourary guest.

Since 1979, CENTURY 21 System members around the world have supported local Easter Seals families through fundraising and volunteering. To date, they have contributed over $111 million. Last year alone, CENTURY 21 offices across Canada raised over $650,000 for Easter Seals. 


About the Kids to Camp program

In 2009, CENTURY 21 CanadaTM introduced the Kids to Camp program, sending children to one of 16 summer camps run by Easter Seals across the country. Through events like The Drop Zone, 24 hour relays, Woman2Warrior, and locally organized fundraising functions, System members have provided over 1,000 children with the independence of fully-accessible summer camps and memorable experiences throughout Canada.

How are Easter Seals camps different?

Each camp is specially designed and equipped to accommodate children and young adults with special needs. The addition and maintenance of ramps and lifts, the modification of doorways, washrooms, the purchase of specialized sports equipment like climbing walls and giant swings are just a few of the expenses unique to these kinds of operations.

Congratulations Jess Tetu owner of Just For you Day Spa and Lia Reese


Congratulation to Trusted partner Jess Tetu on the opening of her 4th Just For You Day Spa and her first retail location for Lia Reese Canada. Sara, the Trusted founder, wrote the following article about Jess and why, at Trusted, we encourage you to have the mindset of - Don't just try local, BUY local.  


A Saskatchewan Success Story

Recently,  I had the pleasure of attending the soft launch of the new Just For You Day Spa in Saskatoon. This spa is the 2nd Saskatoon location and is nestled on the corner of 33rd and Quebec. I thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing hot stone massage in beautiful surroundings, then spent some time relaxing in the stylish and cosy lounge. 
After a cup of tea, it was time to shop at the new retail store for Lia Reese,  which is a beautiful little store connected to the spa. 

The location design is all Jess’s inspiration, and she is extremely hands on. I found out a while ago that she is the queen of repurposing and personally creates many of the gorgeous pieces of furniture and decor in the spas! 

This spa is the third location that Jess has opened in the last 6 years. That in itself is something to be in awe of, especially when you consider that she is a young entrepreneur and wife juggling motherhood and life, also, she only recently turned 30! 

I first met Jess just over 7 years ago, at the time she was considering opening up her second Just For You location in Regina. A huge leap of faith and an enormous undertaking. It has been a roaring success in the Queen City, and  I believe, is still the largest spa in Saskatchewan. 

Jess's business has grown so much, and she now employs over 100! As an entrepreneur myself, who employs 7 people, I can't imagine! What an enormous responsibility - over 100 families, relying on your business and their pay cheque for their bills and kids extracurricular activities. How would it feel to know your everyday decisions and risks in business could impact so many lives? Jess takes it all in her stride with grace, and is, by all accounts, a fair and generous employer and a thoughtful leader. 

Lia Reese was added to her portfolio in recent years. This is her baby, and something Jess feels she created from scratch! Lia Reese is a cosmetic and makeup line manufactured in Canada. It is a pure Saskatchewan product, the names of the nail polishes are witty takes on our small town and city names, lipsticks are named after women who Jess loves and been inspired by, the marketing imagery features Elly Mayday. A successful,  international plus-size model who comes from Jess's hometown of Craik, SK - Elly is a cancer survivor and a gorgeous and inspiring warrior woman in her own right.  
I think you can agree; there really couldn't be a better brand ambassador for Lia Reese Canada! 
The products, created with the utmost care are beautifully packaged, I strongly urge you to try them for yourself! 

Jess Tetu was not born into vast wealth and privilege, she came from humble beginnings and overcame adversity at a young age. She is driven to succeed, and her hard work has been recognized. Jess is the recipient of multiple entrepreneurship awards, including YWCA Saskatoon Women of Distinction Award and ABEX Young Entrepreneur of the year award. Jess is also extremely community-minded, she volunteers a staggering amount of time and resources helping those in need, supporting local businesses and non-profits. Most recently she founded 4seventyone Recovery Resources - a non-profit assisting families battling addiction.

In closing, ladies (and gents), I challenge you to use the last of the international brands of makeup and skincare. You know,  the items on your dresser or cluttering up your bathroom vanity. Instead, support a local woman whose products are just as good (if not better), and who is positively impacting the local economy and our community across Saskatchewan in so many ways!  Swing by the new store in person to try,  or directly buy online at liareese.com. Check out the new Just For You Day Spa for yourself, you deserve a visit! 

This is a picture taken next to my bathroom sink, I have been a fan of Lia Reese everything for a few years and I do have my favourites! 

Congratulations Jess, I am proud to be a fan, a friend, and to have you in our Trusted community of local businesses run with integrity!   Sara

Trusted Saskatoon contractors K & S Contracting share a tip on How Not To Build a Deck

 K & S Contracting specialize in foundation repair for homeowners across Saskatchewan, but they also offer general contracting services to Saskatoon and surrounding area including:

5 Common deck building mistakes


When people decide to take on the task of becoming a carpenter, one of the first things they try to learn is how to build a deck. While building a deck can be a fun and fulfilling project, simple mistakes could turn a fun project into a costly or even deadly nightmare. Here are 5 of the most common mistakes to avoid when learning how to build a deck. 

Selecting The Wrong Material



One of the worst mistakes to make when building a deck is to select the wrong building material. Often people buy the wrong wood or use nails where braces are needed, etc. Personally I have come across dozens of decks built with fencing material. What seems like a cost cutting method could add up to major costs in just a few years. Most fence material has square edges, which chip and break off under the slightest amount of foot pressure. This wood also tends to be knotty and often warps in any weather condition. 



Incorrect Riser Heights

 

One of the most confusing aspects of building a deck for an aspiring carpenter, is cutting the stringer. There is a little math involved that often causes first timers to make the mistake of cutting incorrect riser heights. All of the risers should be the same length except for the bottom riser. All of the other risers will lose the depth of the tread once it is put on so the bottom riser should be a tread depth smaller than the other risers. It’s an easy mistake to make when taking everything else into account.

Not Sealing Your Deck

 

When a deck is built with pressure treated wood, it is recommended to avoid sealing it for 6 months. For some homeowners, six months can turn into a couple of years before they know it. When a deck is not sealed, it will start rotting in a hurry. Make sure to properly clean and seal your deck and check it often to make sure it doesn’t need to be sealed again. To check your deck before you wreck your deck, pour a little water on it to see if it absorbs. If the water is absorbed, it is time to seal it again. A little maintenance goes a long way.



 

 Incorrect placement of Beam Splices

 

More often than not, beginning carpenters make the assumption that separating the distance of beam splices between the different plies is important. While it can help if done properly, It is more important to make sure your splices sit on top of posts. Some designs make it possible to stagger the splices and sit them atop separate posts but if this isn’t possible, make sure sit your splices on top of your posts, even if they are only inches apart between plies. If you avoid this warning, you could be rebuilding after inspection. 






Improper Drainage 

This mistake is actually a series of mistakes that many budding builders make. When building your deck, you want to make sure the water drains in an efficient manner. If the deck is attached directly to your house, it is important to use the proper flashing to make sure water doesn’t accumulate on the side of your house, rotting your structure. It is also important to leave a little space between your planks to allow for drainage. Last but not least, consider sloping your deck .25 inches for every 12 inches away from your house. Doing this will help keep water from accumulating on your deck. 

 

Building a deck can be a fun and rewarding experience as long as you plan ahead and avoid these and other costly mistakes. Happy Building!
