Licensed in 1993, Norm brings a wealth of experience to TeamFisher. He has worked in every imaginable capacity including sales agent, office manager, team leader, broker and now, broker/owner. Norm has written a weekly review of the Saskatoon real estate market for more than 650 consecutive weeks which may make him the most consistent industry blogger in the world.
Norm is known for his passion for technology and can most often be found exploring and experimenting with the next big thing in real estate marketing. He was the first Saskatoon real estate agent to promote a home online and has been an early adopter of new technologies ever since. “Everything about this business has changed over the past 20 years, and it will happen again in the next ten. An open mind and a curious attitude are all that’s needed to continue to find new ways to serve our clients by delivering a faster, smoother, worry-free transaction,” says Norm.
In his spare time, Norm enjoys Crossfit and cycling, some years accumulating over 2,000 kilometres on the road. He’s a strong supporter of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and enjoys raising funds by joining fun, fitness-related initiatives like the Grouse Grind for Shelter. In 2015, he trekked the Peruvian Andes to Machu Picchu. In 2017 he walked the southern highlands of Iceland across mountains, sand, snow, ice, lava fields and forest for seven days. Collectively those initiatives raised over a million dollars for Canadian women's shelters.
I have a huge favour to ask of you and I’m really hoping you will help.
On May 12, Royal LePage will host a “National Garage Sale for Shelter” and our Saskatoon office is participating. All of the proceeds raised in Saskatoon will benefit local women and kids seeking shelter at the YWCA Crisis Shelter and Interval House.
Often, these people are fleeing homes where they’re being abused. Yes, there’s a lot of that going on, even here in our lovely city. When these people finally gather the courage to make a break they need a place to go. The Shelter Foundation is all about ensuring that they have a safe place where they can get a fresh start.
We need stuff to sell. Decent stuff that people will pay for.
Please, do me a big favour and look around your home for a few good items that you no longer use, things that others might find useful. If you can make the time, drop them by my office at 620 Heritage Lane before May 11 between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm. If you can’t make it by, drop me a note (my contact information is all here) and we’ll make sure your items gets picked up.
Then, drop in on May 12. We’ll be here from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm selling burgers and baking, and hosting one huge garage sale.
By the way, the proceeds of this National Garage Sale and those conducted in the past will most likely blast past the $1 million dollar mark this year. Through agent commission donations and the fundraising activities of the Royal LePage network, we have raised more than $14 million to help provide a safe haven to more than 30,000 women and children each year and to support prevention programs that stop the cycle of family violence. Tens of thousands of dollars have been raised to benefit Saskatoon shelters. It’s a darned good cause and it makes a huge difference for many, even here in our lovely city.
Thanks so much for your support.
