Over the past 29 years, she has consistently ranked amongst top agents in the industry and has built trusting relationships with a loyal clientele that enlist her services over and over again.

Prior to real estate, Lina consulted, at a senior level, for Cadbury Schweppes, Benson and Hedges, and CP Rail.
I love everything about real estate, especially the area that I live in, Riverdale. “We truly live in the best city in Canada and I am proud to be part of it”.

Since 1998, the Shelter Foundation has raised more than $20 million and currently supports 200 local women’s shelters and national partners.

Our brokers, agents and staff also volunteer and provide in-kind goods to benefit the women and children residing in their local shelters.

As a former player and coach with the University of Toronto Varsity Blues Football Program, Ken has experienced first-hand the positive impact that academic scholarships have on the lives of student-athletes. Academic scholarships drastically improve academic and athletic performance by allowing student-athletes to focus their efforts in the classroom and on the football field. More importantly, they provide critical financial resources for individuals who otherwise would be unable to afford a University education.
It gives Ken great pleasure to announce a partnership with the Varsity Leadership Foundation, which is the fundraising division of the Blues Football Alumni Network. The Foundation is an incorporated not-for profit company in Ontario and is a CRA registered charity. The Foundation is committed to funding academic scholarships for student-athletes consistent with the University of Toronto, OUA, and CIS scholarship funding rules.
As a Real Estate Sales Representative with Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd. Johnston & Daniel Division. Ken will personally donate a portion of his earnings on every completed transaction to the Varsity Leadership Foundation to help fund academic scholarships. The Varsity Blues Football Program has had a tremendously positive impact on Ken's life and he is excited to contribute towards academic scholarships that will allow future generations of young student-athletes to reach their full potential.
