A three-bedroom townhouse at the end of a row in Little Italy.
How a pair of stagers decluttered a Little Portugal triplex.
This century-old building has an interesting history. It was once a Protestant fraternal clubhouse for the Orange Order, then it was a movie theatre, and now it’s condos.
Designer’s own home. Dream house on dream street. Soul engaging 2 1/2 storey Victorian 4+1 bedroom, 3 bathroom, with all the right features in all the right places.
This is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom semi with a 2 car garage on an 18.83 x 121.17 foot lot at 7 Hendrick Avenue in the Wychwood/Hillcrest neighbourhood of Toronto.
The home was built two years ago, with a design by architect Brad Netkin, of Stamp Architecture. An ultra-modern new-build, located between the buzzy bars and restaurants of Queen West and the equally buzzy bars and restaurants of Dundas West.
The interior is very modern and minimalist. The main floor is open plan and the design transitions easily from room to room, while allowing for plenty of natural light throughout the home.
The original home was built in 1910. The sellers did a to-the-studs renovation that included covering the existing stucco exterior with white board siding, opening up the interior, adding oak hardwood flooring throughout and creating the third-floor master suite.
Located inside the historic Merchandise building, this loft is a sight to behold. With soaring 12-foot ceilings and a huge wall of windows, the place is bright and airy.
This house had an offer night last night and there were 13 offers. It is a 3+2 bedroom, 3+1 bathroom house with a 2 car garage and 2 additional spots on a corner lot at 822 Palmerston Avenue in Seaton Village.
This is a 4+1 bedroom, 3 bathroom semi on an 18.67 x 81 foot lot at 2 Ottawa Street in Summerhill. It’s a great looking house inside and out.
I’ve walked past this house so many times and always wondered what it looked like on the inside. Now that it’s been listed I can say it certainly doesn’t disappoint.
The Loretto is an luxury condo in the Annex that’s home to some very nice loft spaces. Formerly Loretto Abbey Day School, the adaptive re-use project, which was completed in 2007, boasts 46 units, of which this penthouse is one of the finest.
This Rosedale house might be the perfect fixer upper project for someone who loves old homes and has tons of money to burn. Right now, it looks like a feral house from the outside, but it’s on a sizeable corner lot in a highly desirable location.
Ever wonder what $2 million could land you outside the bustle of dowtown Toronto’? This 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home situated just shy of Royal York and Eglinton is a beautifully designed, mid-century split-level home worthy of a Mad Men episode.
This home, built in 1890, is on one of Toronto’s few residential laneways. Neighbours call it the “Republic of Percy,” and it has a tight-knit community. The sellers bought the house in 2012, after which they upgraded the soundproofing and finished part of the basement.
A large one-bedroom condo on the second floor of a boutique building in the Brockton Village section of Little Portugal. There’s a den off the kitchen, a balcony for barbequing, an underground parking spot and a five-piece washroom.
The sellers, Carlo and Laura Colacci, have owned the home since 2013. That first year, the couple made mostly cosmetic renovations. The home was originally built in 1923 as a storefront, and went through iterations as a triplex, then a duplex, before becoming a single-family dwelling.
A luxurious two-bedroom with a wide layout that makes it look and feel like a house, rather than a condo. The entrance is through a private elevator, and the dining room and kitchen are open to the bright and spacious living room one level below.
Whether Alex Brott would pursue real estate came down to a coin toss. “I kind of thought I wanted to be a teacher and my mom was like, ‘You should go into real estate. Let’s flip a coin,” says Brott. So, while on that call in the office at her previous job in music industry […]
As a first-time home buyer, I was extremely nervous about almost every phase of purchasing a home. Heather was able to coach me through all of the necessary steps and provide sound, thoughtful advice along the way. After putting my search on hold for a few months, Heather called and left me a voicemail: “I think I found your place!”. Sure enough, she was right and I signed that day. I would recommend Heather to any first-time home buyer.
—JOANNE SMITH, HAPPY CLIENT
I know we thanked you before but I wanted to say it again and just what an amazing job you did. From the moment you walked in the door I knew that you were the right agent for us and that you would do everything you could for the house. You really understood the house and you understood us. You just got it! Your excitement, enthusiasm, and general positive attitude made the process fun and helped get us through the rough patches. I don’t know how you handle the stress of it all or manage clients like us, but you do an amazing job of it and you’re great at what you do. We could never have imagined that we lived in a million dollar home but you made that a reality. You also made jax’s future even brighter and for that we’ll always be grateful. All I can say is thank you!
—MICKEY & MICHELLE
We can not say enough positive things about our working experience with Heather Hadden and her amazing team. Her positive energy, professionalism, real estate knowledge, emotional support, work ethic and genuine care for us made our buying and selling experience fun and VERY successful.
—WENDY, MATT & DYLAN SMITH
Heather & team came highly recommended and for very good reason. It started with our Condo, which she sold in only a couple of days for more than any other unit had gone for in the building; taking the stress off our shoulders and walking us through the process in a very straightforward way.
—KENDRA AND BEN
Alex and her team made the complex and intimidating task of selling our first home much easier than we thought it would be. We found her to be knowledgeable, personable, and always professional. Her candidness and sense of humour was much appreciated and it made the overall process not only stress-free, but fun too. With her hard work and knowledge of the market, the results of the sale went far beyond our expectations. We have no hesitation recommending her services to all our friends. Many thanks to Alex and the whole team, you guys rock!
—CHRIS AND GENNY
I’m sitting out on the front porch enjoying the sound of raindrops and gulping in the fresh air. This is the first time in seven years that I’ve lived anywhere with outdoor space. We’re putting in the grass this week (you knowhow I love grass) so bub can run around, but he’s already enjoying getting mucky in the yard. Thanks for going the extra mile to stake out this place. you’ve really made our dreams come true! xoo
I can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us! You made the process so much less stressful (even despite our bad luck)! It was such a pleasure to work with you and most of all to get to know you!!! I have already sung your praises to all my friends…..the best agent ever!! Thanks again Alex!! Hope to see you around the ‘hood when we come back to visit Toronto!!!
—NICOLE VAN DYKE
The whole team came together to deliver the best real estate selling experience I have ever had.
Alex helped us find our first home and we couldn’t be happier! Her honesty and expertise were invaluable in finding the perfect place. Alex and her team were always responsive and flexible with our many viewing requests. We greatly enjoyed working with her. Thanks Alex!
