Episode 45: Toronto Rental Revolt 2019
The rent IS too damn high! It wasn’t always that way though. This revolt is about helping smart renters in a big way. I’m hoping to gather all of you that will work with me exclusively and agree to focus on paying $2000 or less in rent when possible. For some spaces it may not be possible but it’s a start. Listen to the podcast and email 📧 me at if you want to join my movement.

Episode 44: The biggest mistake a Toronto seller can make in 2019
When helping my amazing clients make their life moves, their goals are my goals. The smart sellers are also anti bullshit types as am I. In most cases, they are also friends of mine and I care about their quality of life. I’ve seen how moving stress can change people and prefer to avoid it when possible. The stress of not being to sell at a certain price after buying a property is a major one. Sometimes I don’t have any say over it. When I can help you avoid this difficult part of moving, my clients are much happier over all. Take a moment and let’s connect soon if you haven’t as yet. Email me at

Episode 43: What smart sellers do differently
I didn’t sell the most real estate in Toronto in 2018. I didn’t sell the highest price listing. I’m ok with that. One day soon but not yet. What I am very proud of is that 💯 % of my listings sold and also closed in 2018. Don’t assume that’s the case for all who sell real estate. In fact, there are some recent untold Sold stories I’ve seen where those over leveraged buyers in 2018 with 2019 closings don’t have the cash to make it happen. As the pilot 👨‍✈️ of your flight, I am constantly keeping the plane in the air. It doesn’t happen on its own. In fact, 99% of flights are off course and it’s the pilot and avionics that keep the flight in the air and landing safely. Do what the smart sellers do and start at

Episode 40: The good, bad and ugly of Toronto Real Estate in 2019
Welcome to episode 40 of my podcast. This is big one. 21 minutes of info you MUST know if you are buying, selling or renting in Toronto or GTA in 2019. Is the sky falling? Not quite. There are some meteors coming though. I’ve heard some shocking stories already in 2019 and hope you aren’t one of them. My best advice to anyone making a move is do it now. Lock in a good rate and let’s cash you out. No one can tell the future so if your 5 year plan was moving, this is the time to sell at near peak pricing. Mark my words on this. Enjoy!

Episode 39: The FOMO is real!
As 2019 begins, many of you are exploring opportunities in Toronto and GTA area. Congratulations to you. However, the real FOMO (fear of missing out) to worry about is missing out on meeting with me to discuss your success plan. If you’ve ever moved without one in place, you deserve better. As I’ve said for many years, pick whoever you feel is the right fit. It may not always be me. But you should ALWAYS make sure you meet with me for 5 mins at least.

Episode 30: In 2019, staging is out. Living well is in. You heard it here first.
2019 is the year of living well. Each day, 1000s of people in our city go through the process of getting their properties ready for sale. For many, this includes the act of staging. Some weeks I actually see the same couch in 5 different homes. Why? While I’m not against staging itself, wouldn’t it be nice to simply focus on living well instead? My approach is more holistic than most. I want to help you live well long before you ever decide to move. And some of you won’t move but you will know others that will.

Episode 28: Importance of establishing value
Since I started a new kind of property valuation program,, there have been 20,000+ website visits. This is a big deal to me. As someone who is focused on helping people one on one, this level of success tells me you know I am listening to your needs when moving. Sadly, I still see far too many sellers who haven’t met with me before selling their Toronto/GTA properties. That needs to change. Aside from due diligence, many are missing out on amazing opportunities for exposure of your property, especially on a medium like this one. Tune in and connect with me to discuss.

Episode 21: 3 things about the Supreme Court Sold data news
Ive been hearing from many of you about my thoughts on this big decision, including the media. As I always prefer to have my unfiltered info as my message vs a sound clip, here goes.

Episode 20: Meet my Powerhouse Referral Network
As the saying goes, “drive until you qualify”. For some that could mean a condo in downtown a Toronto. For others, a country home for 1/2 the price of what I may sell your city home for. I’ve got amazing contacts all over Canada, the US and the globe. It’s just a one stop shop for you always. Just call Paul. I handle the rest. Welcome to my latest episode on the matter of where to go once you’ve sold your Toronto/GTA home with me. There are many solutions across the province and country and beyond. With many opting to downsize and live simpler, this is a big part of my business. In order to do my best, I need to partner with the best around the world. Today I’m talking with one of my fellow real estate professionals in the Prince Edward County area near Belleville. Having sent clients her way, Carol (who’s a former client of mine and now also a Century 21 agent) knows this process well. She and her husband lived in Toronto for many years and have seen this change happen also.

Episode 19: Sunday Jam
Long before real estate, I was a fan of music. Got my first guitar at 13 and I was hooked. Decided to learn bass guitar in high school and that was all I needed. The rest was all by ear. I dont play as often as I used to but I find myself coming back to many things I enjoy this past year. And since this podcast is unfiltered, there better be some rock guitar distortion involved! Im all over the map from Guns n roses to Howlin Wolf to Motorhead and back. Im a little rusty but still love the sound a guitar makes.

Episode 17: The truth about Sold over asking signs
Its time you hear the truth about those "sold over asking" signs you see. I dont use them regardless of what my listings sell for. I feel they are disrespectful to the buyers and also create negative attention for the owners. A plain "sold " sign does the job. And dont assume SOA means a sold record was broken. Sometimes it just means $1 over asking. A dirty trick indeed. Enjoy the show and remember to ALWAYS register at when selling your Toronto/GTA area home, condo or loft.
