Client Reviews

The team was never daunted by difficult circumstances, and found a solution for everything.
— Mary
Professionalism, client service, sense of urgency and accessibility.

Ken was exceptionally helpful throughout the entire process - from first point of contact, to viewings, to lease negotiation and lease signing. He immediately understood the type of building, layout and unit we were searching for. He is not only knowledgeable but also personable and truly has the client’s best interest in mind. It’s rare to find a downtown realtor who embodies all these qualities.

We were extremely happy with the J&D experience and wouldn’t hesitate to refer him!
— Emily & Temmy
Lina and Ken are outstanding real estate professionals. We have worked with them on two transactions – first to purchase a home in the Riverdale neighbourhood and next to find renters when we needed to move.

Lina and Ken are highly knowledgeable about the market and skillful in handling complex negotiations. They are responsive, proactive and detail-oriented. They exceeded our expectations in providing timely, value-added guidance and advocating for our interest.

What stands out most about Lina and Ken is that they care deeply about their clients and are committed to excellence. They understood our needs as a family, had patience for our many questions, and honoured our perspective at every stage of the process. Lina and Ken are a strong team for their real estate clients and we recommend them most highly.
— Carla & Chris
 
Thank you once again for your efforts last night and the work leading up to crunch time on offer night. Your guidance and guile last night really impressed us both. We have felt all along like we were in good hands with you, and you proved us absolutely that our trust in you was well placed. Thanks for having our backs and for helping to make this insane process surprisingly easy and successful.
— Adam & Lindsay
Lina & Ken took the time to talk through my ideas and current understanding of the market. They helped me to learn more of the technicalities involved in a purchase so that I could look at a variety of properties with an informed mind. With what I gained through them, I wasn’t intimidated by the process, which led me to explore options that I hadn’t even known existed.
— Kate
Lina and Ken were caring professionals throughout the entire process of selling our home. If I can give any advice to any prospective, nervous, “newbie” seller like me, it would be this: trust Lina and Ken’s selling strategy; they know what they’re doing!

Both of these good people kept our needs and concerns uppermost at all times and in the end got us a wonderful price for our home. They are a great team.
Thank you!
— Carol & Michael

through fundraising events, sponsorships and volunteerism.

Helping Women and Children Escape Violence and Rebuild their Lives

 
CAMH.jpg

Because we are committed to strengthening the communities where we live and work, Royal LePage is the only Canadian real estate company with its own charitable foundation. The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention programs.

Every dollar raised goes directly to helping the more than 30,000 women and children who are served each year by the shelters and support programs we fund. Since 1998, the Shelter Foundation has raised more than $20 million and currently supports 200 local women’s shelters and national partners. Our agents donate a portion of their commissions and Royal LePage offices across Canada hold local fundraising events. Our brokers, agents and staff also volunteer and provide in-kind goods to benefit the women and children residing in their local shelters.

Your Used Furniture Will Change a Life

stackedlogo-teal.png

The Furniture Bank is a charity & social enterprise that collects gently used furniture from the community and transfers them to families transitioning out of homelessness or displacement.

There are over 30,000 people in the GTA alone that are living without or with inadequate furniture each year. Donations can play a transformational role in ensuring that all Canadians live with the dignity and stability of a furnished home.

Furniture is silent in its power. We understand the role of food, clothing and shelter in our lives but we often take furniture for granted, until we don’t have access to it. For our clients transitioning out of homelessness or displacement, furniture has a profound impact on their ability to live dignified and productive lives. Since 1998 the furniture bank has helped over 70,071 individuals and 28,854 families in need

Supporting Intercollegiate
Student-Athletes

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.
