  • Description


    Hi! I'm Tony. I am 60, a retired symphony musician (cellist). Now I drive tractor-trailers. I am a widower. My 19 year-old son Misha and I live on a small country property on the southern edge of Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, near the intersection of Highway 401 and Homer Watson Blvd., about 3km west of Conestoga College, about an hour west of Toronto. The property is in an idyllic and peaceful setting, but has become rundown and is in poor condition. We wish to sell it and need help in getting this done. We are 15 minutes by car from downtown Kitchener. The city bus is a short walk or bike ride. We have bikes for the use of Workawayers.

    I am a fairly mainstream Canuck. Kitchener is in the heart of southern Ontario and is a lively cultural centre. It is surrounded by wonderful farmland much of which is still worked by Mennonite families who have been here for many generations. The Six Nations Reserve is close by (one of the biggest communities of indigenous peoples in Canada). There are lots of cultural activities of interest there. Toronto is nearby and is a cosmopolitan city of several millions. The Great Lakes define the geography and climate of this part of North America. They are magnificent freshwater inland seas, of course.

  • Aide


    We need help organizing and executing a plan for our property/chattels (house , barn and land/cars, tractors, tools, household effects, other miscellany) to get it/them ready for sale and put it/them on the market.

    Someone skilled in administrative organization would be a huge help. Craigslist, Kijiji, or other Classified Ad sales experience a big plus. Familiarity and experience with Real Estate transactions would be great, of course. Mechanical aptitude would also be great. A couple maybe?

    You would have your own bedroom(s) and would share the rest of the house with Misha and me.

    Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, and Guelph are great towns to visit with a nice balance of rural and urban. We're only 45 minutes from Toronto International Airport and not much further from downtown Toronto. Niagara Falls is less than two hours drive. Kitchener is on the banks of the Grand River, roughly equidistant from the Great Lakes; Ontario, Erie, Huron, and Georgian Bay.
