Full service real estate sales, leasing and investment.

 

 

“Choose a job you love and you will never work a day in your life”

Confucius

 

 

After several decades of full time real estate it’s easy to tell you why I love what I do, each and every day is different,  as are the needs of each client. I have had to hone many skills to stay at the leading edge, while wearing so many hats: negotiator, strategist, marketing expert, therapist, designer, problem solver, stager, scheduler, advisor, home inspector, photographer and sometimes chief bottle washer (remember the movie “American Beauty” when Annette Bening does the bit “I will sell this house today”).  It’s a life style that I have chosen which guarantees my clients have the best results in the shortest time. Along the way I have happened to be in the top 10% of the sales force as well as manage a portfolio for the Ontario Public Guardian and Trustee (1988-2012).

My personal life is just as busy as I own and race a sailboat, play squash on a team that competes across Toronto, cycle both locally and aboard.

If you’re thinking about buying, selling or investing, let’s talk and see if we are a good fit and determine if your goal is a realistic picture of what is possible.
