Nina Asusa, Broker

Nina's journey in real estate began in the early 1990's where her passion for real-estate quickly grew from an investor and home renovator, to where she is today. In 2006*, Nina launched her full-time real estate career and quickly found herself helping her clients, who many became friends, achieve not just any lifestyle, but the lifestyle they wanted for themselves. Her model was and always will be ''Don't follow someone else's story; create your own story, create your own lifestyle, because 'home is where your story begins.'''  From a single realtor, to developing a strong team of realtors she personally mentored and later owning a real estate brokerage firm, Nina's focus remained the same. She continues to channel her high energy and extensive experience into understanding her client's needs and wants, and in helping them in their real estate journey. Nina's greatest honour is the trust others grant her when welcoming her in their life's journey.

We never want to think we need to worry about an emergency, but the truth is, emergencies happen, so the best thing we can do is be prepared. Being prepared for a disaster or emergency will make the situation run a whole lot more smoothly. It’s recommended that you keep an emergency kit filled with items for your family’s needs for at least 72 hours. By taking time to prepare your kit beforehand, you can be ready if an emergency strikes.
 
Here are the items you should prep for the emergency kit for your home and car:
 

 
The items above are must-pack items you need in your emergency kit for your home and car if a disaster or emergency hits. The items below are additional recommended items to consider adding to your kit and are also based on individual needs.
 

 
Where to Store Your Emergency Kit
Emergencies can strike at any time, so it’s important to be prepared wherever you are. Here are two places to store an emergency kit:
 
1 At home: Keep your emergency kit in a designated place that everyone in your household knows about. Make sure it’s easy to access in case you have to leave your home quickly.
 
2. In your car: You should also keep an emergency kit in your car in case you’re stranded when an emergency hits.
 
Emergency Kit Maintenance
 
Hopefully you’ll never need to use your emergency kit, but you should make sure to maintain it over the years to ensure everything in the kit is safe to use if an emergency does happen.
 
Keep your canned food items in a cool, dry place and store boxed food in tightly closed plastic containers. Replace items when they expire and make sure to add things to your kit as your family’s needs change. For example, perhaps when you first packed your emergency kit you didn’t have a baby and now you do. Add all necessary items to the kit.
 
Stocking your emergency kit is always a good plan. Use this list to make sure your emergency kit for your home and your car is packed with the essentials!
