Tell Us Your Story

Irina quickly became more to us than a real estate agent.

Irina understood our relationship was more than a business transaction. In addition to her expert knowledge of real estate, years of experience and business acumen, Irina listened with compassion and sensitivity and quickly gained our trust and confidence. She helped us identify our lifestyle needs, now and into the future, and guided us to homes and neighbourhoods that were tailored to us.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Irina, and we highly recommend her services.

She is a consummate professional: organized, accessible, attentive to the smallest details, honest, patient and willing to educate us, her clients. Most importantly, Irina was always watching out for our best interests. She has provided invaluable advice that went above and beyond what was expected: referrals to very good legal advisers, mortgage and insurance brokers, pricing, uncommon amendments to the purchase contract that turned out to be quite useful, renovations and interior design - I don't know if there is anything Irina doesn't know about real estate. We bought a great property for a good price thanks to Irina's skills and advice, and we will continue working with Irina for our future real estate transactions.

I've worked with Irina four times, both buying and leasing across the GTA.

Professional, knowledgeable, elegant, and caring, Irina impressed not only me but all my tenants who she helped onboarding. Irina responded quickly to every question I had, shared helpful contacts and resources, and taught me valuable lessons before I had to learn them the hard way. Even after closing on the deals, I continued to seek Irina's advice on real estate. When she helped us buy our first house, she brought all the loose ends together professionally proposing and anticipating solutions every step of the way. When she helped lease out our properties, she checked every single detail and even paid out-of-pocket for background checks to ensure that we have a suitable tenant. To say Irina went above and beyond, would be an understatement. Looking back, I am so grateful that Irina was looking out for us all along. If you are looking for an agent who cares, a wise real estate advisor, and a lifelong friend, Irina would be the one you are looking for!

It was my second-time real estate experience with Irina and again, I was impressed with her work.

I was looking for a condo apartment for my father. Irina kept showing us apartments but none of them satisfied our criteria. Finally, she suggested we look for assignment sales. But there wasn’t much on MLS. So, she went back in time and called all cancelled listings until found the one that was still available and suited my father’s needs. Irina helped negotiate a very good deal for us (in this crazy Sellers’ market, we were able to negotiate the price down!!!) and constantly communicated with the seller’s realtor, lawyers from both sides, property appraisal, and our mortgage broker to facilitate our purchase. She was going above and beyond, showing extremely good customer service. When the transaction was completed, Irina was continue helping us with arranging utility connections, getting a really good deal from Cogeco for internet, phone and TV - free for 6 months, complementary cleaning, home decoration consultation, etc. Yes, I will definitely recommend Irina for all your Real Estate needs.

“Overall sale process with Irina was a great experience.

Our Story: We need to sell a house that was in another city 1 hr drive away. No one lived in that house at the moment. I was waiting for a miracle – it would be nice if somebody will come to me and say – I would like to buy your house… Actually I was hesitant to contact a real estate agent because I had no time to drive multiple times to Kitchener – getting the house ready for sale, meeting with local agents, finding the one agent who you can trust, showing the house, etc… This situation came up in conversation with Irina… I did not expect that listing in another city will be of any interest to her. But she was very enthusiastic and was very happy to help in our situation. I just gave her keys from that house and told her our expectations on Sale price… that was all our involvement… On the morning of the day when Irina scheduled a photo session for that house, she arrived at Kitchener and surprise overnight snowfall was 3-4 inches… Well, she was shovelling 3 cars–a long driveway… I did not hear any complaints from Irina- only positive and enthusiastic expectations. And the pictures turned out awesome as well… After thorough research and comparison and discussion with Irina– we determined our listing price. House was listed on Wednesday, the show started on Thursday, and On Saturday and Sunday – 2 open houses, on Monday we had 2 offers, and the house was sold above the asking price. Wow! Quick and painless! During this one-week-long experience, I realized that Irina was the miracle I was waiting for. She was very professional, knowledgeable, flexible, dedicated, considered and positive, she showed herself as a true problem solver and a very effective communicator. She was sincerely looking after our best interests as clients. After the offer was accepted, she also offered on her own initiative, to go a few times to Kitchener to check out the house that remained empty before the closing date. Thank you, Irina, very much for the great service and experience”

Irina is an awesome realtor!

She is knowledgeable, responsive, friendly, and professional. My husband and I bought a lovely home with her assistance. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor. She made the whole process of buying a home seem simple!

Irina is an outstanding real estate broker who will go above and beyond to help you find your dream home.

We were certainly impressed with her level of service throughout our house search. Irina was very attentive to our needs and made us feel heard from the start. She was always available to explore different neighbourhoods of the GTA and answer our questions at our own pace. We never felt pressured or rushed to make a decision. When we approached the offer stage, Irina did thorough research (consulting with the city hall records, talking to the neighbours, leading discussions with our lawyer, and more) to help us make sure that we are buying the right property and at the right price. She led the price negotiations and was able to secure a significantly lower sale price for our property (~95% of the list price). I would highly recommend Irina to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. We will certainly work with her again in the future!

My wife & I decided to downsize from a much larger home to a smaller property.

We had lived in the same home for over 36 years. The great advice & service Irina gave us in regards to this venture were invaluable. The procedures have changed so much from our last dealings with real estate and without Irina's expert advice & help we would have been lost. She was there every step of the way guiding us on the best way to handle all sorts of new experiences from coming to an agreeable selling price to putting in offers on other properties. Once we finally decided to buy a condo she was there with the names of expert tradesmen for all the renovations we decided to do. She has been with us even after we moved in making sure we were happy with everything and offering to help even more going out of her way to make sure there were no problems. We would highly recommend Irina to family & friends and anyone looking for a caring honest person to help handle this stressful time in their lives.
