December is always a time of year where giving back is the best gift there is. This year I want to thank all of you who have supported me by supporting those who need help. I will donate $1 for the next 121 visits to MySoldReport.com in December. I will also donate $121 per Sold or purchase this month. This represents approx 30 meals as my thanks to those of you who have helped me feed my and support my family in 2018. It means a lot to me.
This is never an easy topic. I’ve been talking to my Oshawa clients in recent weeks as many had the feeling this was coming. In this special report, I discuss the top things you need to know as a local homeowner about the GM plant closure in Oshawa. Having handled many homes in Durham Region (as recently as fall 2018), I know how to ensure you get the best help possible if you choose to move.
The market is shifting. Appraisals can be deal breakers. As a smart seller you want to approach this the right way. You don’t get do overs in real estate. My approach is based on knowing all the details of your property before you make a bad decision and buy something you can’t afford to close on. Visit MySoldReport.com for more.
One of the best parts of doing this podcast has been introducing you to the amazing people that have been part of my success over so many years. Tyson was actually my boss at Goodlife fitness many years ago. How he didn’t fire me I don’t know. What he really did and does to this day, is inspire all those he knows and trains. Tune in to meet this amazing friend, father and award winning trainer.
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.
Welcome to the new monthly segment for a review of how the Toronto/GTA market is doing. Things have shifted quite a bit from Q2 2018 to Q3. Be sure you know where you stand. Leverage means everything in real estate. If you are planning a move soon, we need to talk today. Visit MySoldReport.com to get started.
There is no yesterday or tomorrow in real estate. There is only now. For the smart clients who connect with me, they get this. A mix of low interest rates for buyers and motivated sellers who have already bought is ripe with opportunity for those who see it that way. Enjoy the show.
Since I started a new kind of property valuation program, MySoldReport.com, 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.
Good morning listeners! Today I discuss Luxury real estate in Toronto, how well the millennials are doing and guacamole. I also mention DeLoreans and other weird shit too 😂. For me, this is the best way to connect with many of you I haven’t met...yet. Ive always wanted to be a comedian on some level and feel like my material is good on some level. Hope you enjoy the show.
Today you will hear all about the latest news in real estate and much more. As of this week, I am also a Premier Agent on Zillow. This means a lot to those selling their homes, condos and lofts. I also discuss relationships, music and more. Enjoy.
Welcome to my thanksgiving thank you podcast and recap of the Century 21 Canada recent conference. Thankful for the amazing clients & fellow Century 21 agents that both educate and inspire me. Lots of name drops here so be sure to listen to the whole 21 minutes. As always, I count relationships not transactions.
Today is day 1 of the new rules for sold (not closed) data to be released on password ready sites. Hold my beer while I say this. The data is useless without the right analysis. That’s where I come in. Have a listen to my top 3 takeaways from this and don’t waste your time signing up on the shiny sites so you can be on their contact list. Be smart about this. Let’s connect soon and discuss in person.
Today is the big day. My TIFF inspired red carpet grand opening for my 84 East Lynn Ave listing. As I ONLY do for my loyal clients, I make sure they get the best exposure possible when selling their Toronto homes, condos and lofts. This 1922 built character home has it all. 3 beds, 2 baths and parking. Listed at $1,021,000. This is the actual price, not an offer date price. Transparency is a big deal to me and my sellers feel this approach is the fairest way to do things. If you are also considering selling at these near peak prices, get signed up at MySoldReport.com.
Welcome to all of those involved with TIFF and all of you in general. I hope to meet all of you on my various red carpet real estate tours around the city. I wanted to be the first to interview the person who makes a lot of the magic happen during the festival. Tarra has been part of this event for many years and knows whats needed better than anyone. After all, if she can help Mick Jagger while he's on tour, what cant she do. Plus at the end I do my run down of my fav real estate related films. Enjoy her amazing stories and be sure to sign up with me to experience the Vip Rockstar Client treatment. She can be reached via TakeItEasyConcierge.com
Ok class. Sit down. You in the blue shirt, put that beer away. I didnt mean drink it :). As we begin a new chapter in the year, I like to make sure you are all on the same page as me. Lots happening in and around the Toronto/GTA area. If you are hoping to cash out between 2018-2020, most of my sellers are doing so this fall. There are many reasons for this and once we meet I can explain more. Enjoy the show and remember this is actually me. No actors hired here. No ghost writers. Im the real deal!
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. I am still more concerned about people falling for the sold over asking scam than I am about this. Media requests via email at email@example.com.
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.
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.
On every successful real estate transaction there are key players. Think of it as a relay. To be successful there needs to be a great realtor, great mortgage broker, great inspectors and great lawyers. I’ve been privileged to work with some of the great ones and want to share their stories. Today you will meet Milad Tafakori of Tafakori Khan Real Estate lawyers. Having just helped clients of mine in a recent transaction, he took a few moments to meet with me and tell me how he works. As someone who kept us his communication all through the process, this is critical for me. Looking forward to many more together. I’m thankful for the relationships I’ve created with many of top real estate lawyers in the city and am thankful for the many referrals I’ve received. If I can be of any help to any of you, just connect with me here.
Join me as I visit one of the most enjoyable parts of living on the Danforth. This marks the 25th anniversary of this historic event. Each year 1000s visit and become a part of this wondefully diverse area. As an East York/Danforth area resident since 1998, this is also part of my own 20th year celebration. Enjoy the episode including a great interview with one of the local business owners here.
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 MySoldReport.com when selling your Toronto/GTA area home, condo or loft.

Welcome to Yorkdale. Its not the same area you remember from years ago. Things are changing. Having just sold a stunning condo here recently and many others over the years, I can see the way its changing here. Anytime there is a major anchor store in an area investing millions into its area, there is opportunity on all levels. Be sure you talk to me before buying or selling here.
I am pleased to present my first ever property podcast live from the historic area of Cabbagetown. This new listing is a stunning condo for lease. 2 bed and 2 baths. Ideal for anyone looking for a great space in the downtown core under $3000 a month. Aside from the amazing homes, condos and lofts here, there are many more aspects. I’m here at Riverdale Farm recording this segment today as this place has lots of memories for us. Our daughter has attended the farm camp here many times. Many meals over at Park Snacks, a legendary shop across the street. For more info on my listing in this area and to make sure your listing gets the exposure it deserves, sign up now at News.UniqueToronto.com.
Since 1998, I have called East York my home. Danforth and Woodbine has been the main intersection of our lives here. Over the years, Ive had some amazing relationships with the wonderful people Ive helped move here. If you live here, youve likely seen my DanforthWoodbine.com Community Ice Cream cart around our area. Plus the lineups that follow. Recent events in our area have been difficult to understand. There are far more heroes than villians in our area and those are the ones we take care of.
A brewery tour on a real estate podcast? Yes. That’s right. Considering this podcast is called unfiltered, what better place than a local craft brewery in my own neighbourhood of East York. I had the pleasure of meeting David at Muddy York brewery when they took part in our Canada Day events here. Supporting local business is a big deal to me. I love seeing those who invest in our community reach a new level success. Be sure to register at News.UniqueToronto.com.
This is a podcast I’ve been working on for some time. I’ve known Tarra and her partner Greg for many years. Two of the best kind of people you will ever meet. They have the most incredible lives and can make sure yours is just as awesome. Part of the Rock Star Vip Real Estate Experience is having a concierge to assist with your move. There is nothing that makes your quality of life better than this rock star experience. As part of my unique approach, my clients get a 2 hr sneak preview of how she works her magic for everyone from busy families to doctors to CEOs to the worlds biggest rock star himself, Mick Jagger. It doesn’t get more rock n roll than that and I like it! And so will you. Sign up at MySoldReport.com for more info. Tarra can be reached at TakeItEasyConcierge.com
Sometimes, you just gotta hit the Beach. Aside from being such a great area, there have always been additional health benefits to living near water. The rich history of this area is a big part of its draw. Be sure you bring your lotion and flip flops when we see places here.
A few times a month, I am often on my New Condo ViP sessions around the city. I’ve been handling new construction all over Ontario in addition to resale for 17 years. During this time I’ve learned the right questions to ask, who to ask them to and how to keep my clients safe in the process. Register at News.UniqueToronto.com before July 21 to ensure you are on my ViP group buying tours.
Today was a true thrill. I spent the morning at Looking Glass Adventures in my part of town, Danforth East. Christine, the owner, has put together an incredible place that must be on your must do list for the top attractions in Toronto. Just like my real estate clients love my overpromise and overdeliver approach, this place does the same. Enjoy...
The BeachBucks program is in full effect. Supporting the small businesses in the area where I buy and sell real estate is the right thing to do. Donated recently to a local school fundraiser and the winner wanted his BeachBucks gift from the Pony Club Mens clothing store. This gave me the chance to meet with Angelo, a fixture in the Beach for the last 32 years. My CommunityCash program is now in effect in every part of Toronto and the GTA and people are loving it! Be sure you connect with me today and find out how you can best support your community when moving with me.
Today was a great day. I decided to visit the world’s first “Pay what you can” grocery store, bakery and coffee shop here in Toronto. I was in the area meeting a client and decided to do a pop by. Chef Jagger Gordon could not have been a nicer guy. I asked if we do a quick interview and he said “sure”. As busy as he and the staff were, he made time. Be sure to drop by this great place in the Junction and show your support. I’m sure we could use many more of these around the province and the country.
