Guidance from a Lifelong Local
I grew up in West Toronto, am raising my kids here, and am an active part of the community. When you’re buying in Etobicoke, I can tell you all about the best restaurants, parks, schools, and neighbourhood pockets from a first-hand perspective.

I purchased the perfect house in 24 hours with Lilette Wiens. Definitely a shark in Toronto real estate. Can’t wait to buy another property through her!Read More Testimonials
If you’re preparing to buy your first home, education is key. That means getting pre-approved for a mortgage so you know what you can afford (and can be realistic in your search), understanding what rebates you’re eligible for, determining whether pre-construction is right for you, and learning the importance of offer prices and timing.
I’ll never push you into the wrong purchase–but I will encourage you to have an open mind and keep your expectations in check when there’s a great home for the right price. This market moves fast! Together, we’ll move quickly to get the home you love.

Interested in Pre-Construction?
New developments in Etobicoke and across the GTA are abundant–but are they the right choice for you? Purchasing a pre-construction property has different processes, financial requirements, and decisions to make when compared to buying a resale property or new house.
Before you decide, I’ll walk you through the pros and cons of purchasing a pre-construction unit. If it is the right choice, we’ll start looking at developments to determine the right location and unit style.
Want to Buy Outside of West Toronto?
Although I specialize in West Toronto real estate, I’ve helped many clients find homes outside of the area, including The Beach, Mississauga, Oakville, and across the GTA. If you’re looking for something outside of the GTA or in an international location, I can connect you with real estate agents I trust through my established network of professionals.
The first step in how to find the right home is to get pre-approved for a mortgage to see how much you can afford. Need a recommendation for a mortgage broker or lender? Just ask!
Meet with me to discuss your budget, ideal location, desired amenities, and other wish list items, so we can determine how to find the right home for you.
We’ll start the search and I’ll send you listings that fit your criteria.
When there’s a home you like, I’ll schedule a viewing so we can see it in-person. This can help better determine things you need or want that you may not have even thought of.
Once we find the right home, we’ll sit down to determine a strong offer approach and strategize on conditions and contingencies before I present the offer to the seller on your behalf.
When offer night comes, I’ll negotiate like every dollar is my own until we reach the best possible outcome.
We close the deal, celebrate your purchase, and start preparing for your move!
