News From Victoria Newstead

Hey, what’s your favourite movie?

One of my favourite things to do is to sit down with my fur-baby Lucy, a bowl of popcorn, a glass of wine and escape into a really good movie. Comedy, biography, historical drama, musicals. I especially gravitate to stories that parlez golden nuggets of relationship wisdom. I recently saw Green Book… it is so good!

I’m also a huge documentary fan. I think my love for learning through story and epic adventures says a lot about my values and me as a person.

On March 12, I went to a documentary film screening of the film“On a Scale of 1 to 10”. It’s a documentary on chronic pain. I’d summarize it as a powerful resource for anyone that needs to overcome an injury or lives with an ongoing health issue, especially pain. While the documentary is rich with resources on overcoming chronic pain, it’s also a great teacher on how to be your own best health care advocate. Particularly, how important it is to use common language that health care practitioners use in order to clearly communicate with your health professional.

I am grateful for the invitation to see the film before it’s release this May, and while I hope you never need to implement what’s taught, chronic pain is showing up in epic proportions so you may want to pass the info along to a friend who needs it.

Going to the Doctor 

My husband went to the cardiologist after experiencing symptoms of a heart attack. “I had taken our cat to the vet,” he told the nurse, “and while I was there, my chest got tight, and I had trouble breathing. Later, my left arm began aching.”The nurse was clearly concerned. “So,” she asked, “how was the cat?”


Love You From A far

My fitness coach told me to bend down and touch my toes. I said, “I don’t have that kind of relationship with my feet. Can I just wave?”


If you are like most people, the idea of riding the stock market ‘roller coaster’ makes you feel a little queasy.  The highs can be a lot of fun, but the lows really give you a kickin’ (and there seem to be a lot more lows than highs for most investors).

         While real estate also follows a cycle, it tends to be a much more gradual one.  Investing in revenue properties offers us limited immunity from fluctuation

         This means that you don’t tend to see the massive ups and downs of the stock and commodity markets.  It’s a much gentler ride, and tends to provide very solid returns on investment over the long run.  This is another reason I prefer real estate investing over other kinds of investments.
