Trusted Saskatoon Electrician and Saskatoon Electrical expert shares a Tip on Surge Protectors

Electrical Tip on Whole House Surge Protectors

If you are like most people, you probably have a few power strip surge protectors throughout your house to protect your home from power surges. Unfortunately, most provide little to no protection against power surges. What causes power surges? Lightning, problems with the utility company’s equipment, large appliances cycling power on and off, faulty wiring, and downed power lines are just a few things that cause power surges. What is at risk? All items that have a microprocessor are at risk during a power surge. This includes items like: televisions, computers, refrigerators, washers, dryers, ovens, alarm systems, microwaves and telephones.

It is amazing how many items in your house actually need to be protected from an electrical surge. If an electrical surge were to occur today, how much money would you stand to lose? Wouldn’t it make sense to have ONE surge protector that would protect your entire house?

It’s a wise decision to be prepared before the next electrical surge hits your home. Get a whole home surge protector that will protect not only your power lines, but your cable and telephone lines. If you protect yourself from a power surge at the source you will experience benefits like:

  • Saving Time and Money – After an electrical surge all your neighbors will be spending time calling electricians to come out and replace the microprocessors in all their electronic devices. Your neighbors will have to shell out countless dollars to replace electronic devices that no longer function. But, if you have a whole home surge protector you will be able to sit back, relax and be secure in the fact that once the power returns, all your expensive electronics will return to normal.
  • Insurance for Your Electronics – Whole home surge protectors provide inexpensive insurance compared to the cost of replacing all your electronics. Sales Point Advantage - Differentiate your house from all the other houses on the market. It’s an inexpensive way to make your house stand out from the competition. This is a great feature for home builders as well. This could be the attention to detail the buyer is looking for.
  • Peace of Mind – You can relax the next time a lightning storm occurs or the next power surge takes place in your area. You can rest assured that your electrical devices are protected. It only takes seconds to destroy countless expensive electronic devices, so don’t wait until it is too late!

Read some examples of what Kari's clients have to say about working with her as their Trusted Saskatoon Realtor here 

Here she sahres her thoughts on what it takes to be a successful Saskatoon Realtor

I often have aquaintances (I won’t say friends as they know how hard I work), clients, university students, and people from the public ask me about my job and they all wonder if they could also be a real estate agent in Saskatoon. I have some answers below.

Q.Can almost anyone out there get their real estate license?

A. Yes

Q.Is it hard to get your license?

A.Not really if you know how to study.

Q.Is it hard to be a real estate agent in Saskatchewan?

A.Yes and no.

Q.Is it hard to be a successful real estate agent in Saskatoon?

A.Yes. The reasons are many and I will outline some below.

1. Anyone who has some book smarts can probably get their real estate license (but we do get fingerprinted so felons need not apply!) but not everyone can live the life of a Realtor® or find success in this lifestyle. It is one of the few careers out there that is also a lifestyle as we don’t leave our work at the office on Friday afternoon and pick it up again Monday. Not if you want to be successful that is.

2. One of the keys to being a successful real estate agent in Saskatoon and in general is to truly love what you do. I am passionate about helping people sell homes in Saskatoon as well as helping people buy a house for sale in Saskatoon…and condos for sale in Saskatoon of course as that is a large percentage of what I sell. For me, in general, what I do is not work (okay, I lied, the keeping up with the paperwork part IS work, but meeting people, showing houses for sale in Saskatoon, and helping people achieve their dreams is not work!)

3. A Realtor® in Saskatoon must be prepared to answer their phones from 7:30am until sometimes midnight if they have a deal on the go (if they have an offer on one of their houses for sale in Saskatoon or they are helping a person buy a house for sale in Saskatoon). I have had to run to the office at 11pm on more than one occasion to meet a client to get them their dream home as there was another offer on the table and they wanted that particular house for sale in Saskatoon. Successful Realtors® in Saskatoon do not turn their phone off Friday afternoon and leave their clients high and dry until Monday. Successful Realtors® in Saskatoon are prepared to hop in their car to meet their clients at a house for sale in Saskatoon the minute we see it may be ‘the one’ for their clients.

4. There is a lot of competition for Realtors® in Saskatoon. There are a lot of agents in the industry now and they are younger and eager. We also compete with for sale by owners and discount brokerages.

Q. I love looking at houses on MLS®, should I become a Realtor® in Saskatoon?

A. MOST people love looking at houses on MLS®! It is a fun past time and one of the most visited websites in the world. That isn’t what being a real estate agent in Saskatoon is all about. It is having the personality, business sense, work ethic, drive, lack of a life at times, and ability to say ‘next’ when people you have come to trust disappoint you and ditch you as their Saskatoon Realtor® if you don’t pick up your phone one time when they call. It can be upsetting when you spend countless hours, evenings, weekends with people only to have them buy from another agent when you are unavailable for an hour.

Q. Do you get paid an hourly wage?

A. No. It is strictly commission so the comment above about spending hours, evenings, days, etc with people and then not getting paid in the end can be a hard pill to swallow.

 Q. Is it a safe career?

A. Personal safety is always a concern in this industry. A Saskatoon real estate agent was attacked a few years ago and women in particular are the targets of unwanted attention and inappropriate phone calls at times.

Q. Is there any job security?

A. No, if you don’t work you don’t get paid. You have to seek out clients.

Q. Is there disability, health care, etc?

A. It depends on which company you work for but it is paid for by the real estate agent.

Q. Can you get a pension?

A. No, you are self employed, a contractor.
