Kingston Military Relocation – Expecting a Posting Message?

Okay, so are anxiously awaiting your posting message this year or perhaps the change is going to be welcomed?  In a matter of weeks or months your letter will be arriving.  The buzz may have already started amongst your peers – who’s being posted, who’s promoted, where’s are they going and who is retiring?  It may seem early to be talking about military posting messages, but we’ve already seen some new CFB Kingston Military Personnel come to town for their Military House Hunting Trip (HHT).  If you think CFB Kingston is going to be your newest posting, check out these helpful resources for you & your family.  And don’t forget, I am a valuable resource for your Military House Hunting Trip.  As a Military Relocation DND Approved Realtor, and an award winning Realtor – I’m not only ready to help you, I am qualified to help you!
