the value of your home
How long have you been an agent?
I have over 20 experience working in the Real Estate industry. I’ve held a variety of positions that include the front office, the back office and sales so I understand very well how this business works. I’ve been a licensed agent for 10 of those years and I’ve been able to successfully leverage those experiences to advocate for both my buyers and my sellers.
How would you describe yourself – your personality, your style, your approach to your work.
I consider myself a sincere and caring agent and I’m empathetic to the needs and requirements of my clients. As a result, my approach to real estate marketing strategies is always in consultation with my clients while considering market conditions and winning approaches. Every client is unique. I understand that everyone’s time is valuable which is why it is critically important for me to understand my client needs. As a result, many of my buyers are surprised to hear that the average number of homes I show is a handful before a purchase is made. My working style is very relaxed and it’s critical for me that my clients also have that same comfort level throughout the entire process. Once we’ve engaged in a working relationship, you’ll come to appreciate why past clients appreciate my tenacity.
What do you love about this business? Why do you do what you do?
One of the things I love most about this business is that not one sale is the same, no buyer or seller is the same and every day brings a different opportunity and experience. The other great thing about this business is that I’ve been fortunate to meet so many wonderful people which is why it gives me such great satisfaction. There’s no greater feeling than when I’ve found my buyers the right home and when I’ve exceeded my sellers’ expectations.
What neighbourhoods do you work in most often, and what do you like about those areas?
The areas in which I bring my expertise are predominantly Riverdale, Riverside, Upper Beach, Little India and East York. I know these areas very well as I have also lived and worked in several of them. I think it’s critically important to understand the neighbourhoods I’ve lived and worked in since it’s made me an effective advocate for both my buyers and sellers.
What makes you different from your competition – what are your special skills, passions, talents? Why should clients choose you?
My approach to a sale or purchase of home is rooted in my desire to satisfy my clients’ needs. At the heart of this is my personal belief that I cannot sacrifice my integrity and jeopardize my clients’ hard earned money for a sale. It’s very easy for me to say these things but what better validation than my clients’ testimonials. Once of my recent clients described me this way, “… dedicated, passionate and thoughtful in her approach to clients and humanity in general”.
Any special recognitions, awards etc. that you have won.
To further validate my belief in my approach to how I care for my business and clients, I was awarded the Re/Max 100% Club Aware in 2014. I am proud to have been awarded the Re/Max Platinum Club Award for 2015 and 2016 which puts me in the top 5% of all Realtors in North America. It’s a privilege to be in the company of some of the country’s top realtors.
Anything else you would like potential clients to know about you.
Although my academic training in Biology and Engineering prepared me for life, I realized that my one true passion has always been real estate. I aspired to never be “THAT” agent with all of its negative connotations. Early on I worried about the “sales” stigma but realized I didn’t have to be like everyone else which is why I believe I’ve stood out. As I’ve been licensed for over 10 years now and have raised 3 children in that time, I still love what I do and wouldn’t trade it for anything else.

One of the most important decisions you will make when selling it is who will assist you. You should put the sale in the hands of an experienced agent who will produce results for you and provide a premier customer experience.
RE/MAX Hallmark agents are trusted advisors who are committed to you and possess the knowledge and experience to help you navigate today’s complex real estate market.
RE/MAX is the most recognized name in real estate in Canada. From the RE/MAX for sale sign to remax.ca, brokerage websites and personal agent websites, the RE/MAX brand attracts attention to your home. When homebuyers see that sign on your lawn, they understand that you’re working with a market leader.
Purchase offers on your home may be complicated and might contain special clauses. Price is not the only consideration. Your RE/MAX Hallmark agent will help you understand and evaluate offers and work hard to get you the best terms possible.
Homes come in every size, style and price range. Knowing what you can afford at the beginning of your search saves you time and disappointment later on.
You’ve found that perfect house! What do you do now? Your Sales Representative will prepare an Agreement of Purchase and Sale, including any custom clauses you may require. Most Buyers will make an offer provided certain conditions are met.
It is important to be qualified or pre-approved for financing before you start looking for a home. This lets you and your agent know what you can afford as well as providing a written confirmation or certificate for a fixed interest rate good for a specific period of time.
This condition provides an opportunity to have the property inspected by a qualified person who will look for any major defects in the building prior to your entering into a firm agreement. Many Buyers choose to have a termite inspection done as well.
It’s so nice to see everyone so happy for us – most of you know just how hard it’s been, and how sweet it is to be in the “home” stretch. To be able to say “Sold above asking” is something to be so happy about that I could squeak. We had a phenomenal number of people through for viewings and during the two long days of open houses.
I’d like to thank Gina Athanasiou, Agent Extraordinaire, for helping us to get through this last hurdle. She saw what needed to be done, and did it. Her plans, actions, good counsel and good humour are what was needed to sell our beloved old house to just the right people. They’re a lovely couple who will no doubt give it what it needs and who will love their new neighbourhood. I can recommend her as an agent heartily – she made a big promise, and delivered on it. With flying colours. Thanks, Gina! –Marla and Steve Good – 49 Colgate Ave
