TestimonialsWhat our clients say about our service
By: Greg Bella
As a first time home buyer looking for a condo in downtown Toronto, I was understandably concerned about making a wise decision. Right from the moment I met Claudia & Jose, I felt confident in their real estate knowledge and abilities. ?Their level of professionalism was very high and exceeded all expectations. They went above and beyond to accommodate my needs and to educate me during every step of the process; not to mention having some fun along the way. I’ve been truly impressed with the fact that, even though the deal was signed, they still maintained the same high level of support and provided critical next-steps information. I highly recommend Claudia & Jose to any prospective home buyer"

"Claudia helped my fiancé and myself find our first condo in downtown Toronto. She came highly recommended from a friend and from the moment we met her, through all of our tours, to closing on our new place Claudia lived up to, and exceeded, the recommendation. Claudia was extremely accommodating with both of our busy schedules, never once made us feel pressured and always supplied ample information to ensure that our purchase was made with total confidence. I can't imagine going through this experience with anyone else and would highly recommend Claudia and Jose to anyone looking to buy in the Toronto market."

Despite our demanding requirements, he gladly accepted the challenge and I am very happy with his services. Not only is he patient, he is very meticulous and efficient in what he does. I would highly recommend Jose to anyone who is looking to buy, sell or rent. His professionalism and experience in industry is top notch and you will not be disappointed! No challenge is ever too big for him. He will be the one to find your dream home".

Jose was amazing to work with, from first contact to closing my deal. I was referred to Jose from a trusted friend, so had an idea of what I could expect, but even then I was blown away! Jose is the consummate professional - an expert with the highest knowledge, preparation and integrity. Seeing Jose in action, from dealing with a concierge to the Seller, he treats everyone with incredible respect and grace. I highly recommend Jose and his team to anyone looking to buy or rent in Toronto, and I now have my "lifetime agent". Thanks again for all the help!

Claudia is a wonderful realtor who brings value to her clients due to her strong knowledge of real estate as well as her kind and positive demeanor. She was invaluable in the searching and purchasing of our first condo (and was extremely patient in answering our hundreds of questions in the process!). I highly recommend Claudia's services to home buyers both new and experienced.

Jose worked with myself & my wife who were first time home buyers. He went above and beyond the typical real estate-client service relationship to determine our preferences, and to ensure that we made an economically wise & informed decision. Jose is very patient and helps obtain answers to questions (mortgages, closing costs, inventory) in a very timely manner. Jose can also leverage his large network of mortgage agents, lawyers, and other real estate agents to obtain accurate answers to questions. If you want to be treated like his #1 client, speak to Jose today!

Ours was more than a sale of a condominium; it marked a turning point in our lives. From the time of our first meeting, you were honest and direct, clearly explaining how the process would unfold so we were never surprised. We knew instantly that we had selected the right Realtors. When it came to setting an asking price and later adjusting that price, both of you graciously listened to our concerns and thoughts. In those discussions it quickly became obvious that you knew your market and the local real estate. Confident of your ability, we were optimistic of the future. The experience at each phase of the sale was superior, such as innovative efforts in developing prospects, useful insights on staging, effective showings and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations. Antonio and I quickly grew accustomed to your sense of humor, high energy level and great work ethic. You impressed us with your flexibility, integrity and persistence in making this happen for us. It is no exaggeration that selling a home is a stressful endeavor. You provided support and confidence beyond the sale that we needed to get to our new place. Through it all you were Realtors who were clearly partners and friends. For all of these reasons and much more, we unconditionally recommend you to family and friends. Without hesitation we would seek you out with any future real estate needs. Thanks so much!-Rodola Sibuma-Gomez

Highly recommend Jose! Jose was hands down the best Realtor I have ever worked with. He was professional, genuine, and very hard working to find me my perfect apartment. He cared about my best interests, and made the process easier while having the utmost patience with me throughout all of my questions since I was a first time home buyer. I will definitely be recommending Jose to anyone looking for a realtor as his service was excellent and I'm sure anyone that works with him won't ever be disappointed. Really appreciate all his hard work and would rate his service a definite 10/10!
By: Marcus Pang
Jose came highly recommended to me and it was easy to see why! As inexperienced first-time home buyers, Jose was extremely patient and took the time to share his real estate knowledge and explain many unfamiliar concepts to us. Jose was also very professional and thoughtful throughout the entire time, always acting in our best interests and providing us advice both as a realtor and as a friend. I would strongly recommend Jose for all your real estate needs!

My wife and I recently worked with Claudia on the purchase and sale of our new/existing home. We decided to use Claudia as our Real Estate agent once again after enjoying such a smooth process in purchasing our first home in 2014. The task this time around was much more difficult as home ownership over the past two years allowed us to understand exactly what we were looking for. A lot of Agents will tell you that they are available 24/7 but seeing this done in practice is a totally different proposition. There were many times that I would get home at 7 PM and message them seeing if we could go see a property by 8 PM. This happened over 10 times and not once did we face any resistance. Accommodating is a word that does not do any justice to how generous Claudia and her husband, Jose are with their time. What makes this even more humbling is that these the parents of two young children who are able to manage a very successful real estate career and raise two smart, beautiful young children. It showed us the type of people we were interacting with on a daily basis. Claudia’s true strength is her ability to emotionally connect with a sellers Agent. It’s true that the best price usually wins a home but we saw time and time again where Claudia was able to establish a strong relationship with an Agent that she had never worked with and allow us as buyers to feel that the package we were presenting was strong and would be taken seriously. She was able to sell our story which while not a requirement in the job and not something that guarantees you a win, it allows you as the client feel that she is just as much invested into the process as you are. She will not allow you to take one wrong step if it made her life easier. Once the dust settles, you no longer look at her as you Agent, rather a friend for life and a person that you can’t recommend enough to anyone looking to purchase, sell or invest in a property in and outside of Toronto. It should also be noted that our house was sold over-asking and we bought our house under-asking! Truly a phenomenal outcome.

Claudia did an outstanding job in helping me find a home in downtown Toronto. I had an idea of what I was looking for, but Claudia was able to complete the puzzle for me - she took the time to understand my needs, likes and dislikes and was able to quickly put together a portfolio of excellent options. Claudia's extremely well organized & her no-pressure, fun style made my experience of finding & buying a new home a very easy, informative & enjoyable one. Thank you Claudia (& Jose) !

Jose was really easy to work with, always responded quickly to any of my questions. He was able to put an offer in for me very quickly when i needed it to be. I highly recommend Jose to anyone looking for a Real estate agent, very nice work!

Claudia has a great knowledge of Toronto real state business, which helps a lot find a place that meets our expectation. Also she is very efficient and apparently works around the clock, since she was always available.
By: Dany Guimond-Valcourt
Claudia is genuine, well-driven, passionate, professional and client oriented. Claudia clearly made a difference in my integration in my new province. I had to move from Montreal to Toronto in a very short period of time to found the perfect place. She's know all the different specification areas in the GTA and know the market like no-one else. After some visits, I find the perfect place and the process was easy because of her. I already referred her and I will definitively refer Claudia again and again: she's so focus and dedicated: she think about everything. She helped me before, during and after I move. When you have to found the perfect place to live, you want to work with someone who understand your lifestyle and your needs. Claudia got this and she goes beyond!

My husband and I recently worked with Jose on the purchase and sale of our new/existing home. We decided to use Jose as our Real Estate agent once again after enjoying such a smooth process in purchasing our first home in 2014. The task this time around was much more difficult as home ownership over the past two years allowed us to understand exactly what we were looking for. Jose was able to breakdown the attributes of a house that were deal killers to us and subtlety force us to view various properties from an objective point of view. Each correspondence with Jose whether through phone, e-mail or text is carefully thought out, you don’t leave a conversation without a question being unanswered or feeling like you have been brushed off as he is busy with something bigger and better than what he is working with you on. This is truly a bespoke service you are receiving from Jose. The purchase and sale of your home comes with a lot of emotional ups and downs. Jose’s true strength is to remain even keel, stripping out any emotion and providing you (the client) with an objective list of options. He showed through the sale of our house a strong ability to fight for his client while maintaining a level of respect for the other side. You cannot go wrong with asking Jose to represent you. Once the dust settles, you no longer look at him as you Agent, rather a friend for life and a person that you can’t recommend enough to anyone looking to purchase, sell or invest in a property in and outside of Toronto.

*Jose is one of the most dedicated and professional people I have ever come across in my life. He went above and beyond the call of duty in our hunt to find the perfect apartment. Not only did he cater to all our requirements and answer our questions but also did so smilingly and with the utmost patience. I would go back again and again. Even after his bit was done, he has continued to stay connected and assist us with anything related to the apartment. An honest, efficient and professional person, you can always count on his organized way of showing you whats out there. Getting to know Jose was indeed a pleasure and we plan on going back only to him for any real estate needs. Will definitely be recommending him openly to anyone who is looking for help with their search. Jose gets a 11/10!

I had Jose helping me with the purchase and further rental processes of an investment property (Condo) in Toronto. I finally found a professional who is truly trustworthy and highly knowledgeable. Real Estate deals can be very stressful, and Jose always made sure that I would have the best information available for easing my decision making. He helped me to clearly evaluate and overcome all the risks related to the transactions.
By: Ruth Woolmer
Jose helped me to find my first home. I found him (and his partner, Claudia Pardo) to be extremely professional, knowledgable on all aspects of buying a property and, most importantly, practical in giving advice. Jose was proactive in seeking out possible properties for me ahead of time outside of MLS; those properties inevitably hit the mark because he understood my requirements thoroughly. Jose is very personable in his style, meaning that I felt I could ask him any question, no matter how small. He is also great at communication, both in terms of keeping me informed throughout the process and following up in a timely manner on those tasks he had committed to (including when he was on vacation). I would recommend Jose to anyone looking to purchase a property.

By: Eric Heidman
I had recently moved to to Toronto and Jose was recommended to me and I can see why, he was on point with the condos that he showed me, had a great attitude and was excellent to work with. I have now been in one of the condos he showed me for a couple of months and I couldn't be happier with the space and location.
By: Olena Kis
Jose was very pleasant to deal with, mindful of our time constrains, accommodating to our busy schedules and knowledgeable of the Toronto real estate market. He took the initiative to negotiate a better price for our lease based on his expert knowledge of the current real estate market. I would use him in the future and recommend him to anyone looking for a rental property downtown Toronto.
