We pride ourselves on providing the most attentive service and honest advice to clients in the upscale GTA real estate market. Whether buying or selling, we never forget that we are here to act in the best interests of the client – and sometimes even to help them figure out what that is in terms of real estate.
Our Team firmly believes that if you really, really care about your clients, you are fanatical about attention to detail, you learn everything about the neighbourhoods in which you work, you market relentlessly and you negotiate hard to extract every bit of value you can with what the current market will give.
Buying and selling property is a many-variable undertaking in an always-changing market. We strive to provide a process that brings all the relevant information to our clients’ fingertips to allow them to make the best decision. We are also aware that we must be respectful of our clients’ precious time and ensure that there are zero surprises along the way.

Eli has loved great architecture and design since childhood, but it is his passion in working for and with people that made a career a real estate so appealing.
After degrees in Marketing from St Clair College and Commerce from Athabasca University Alberta, Eli started his career in project development with the Alshifa Medical Group in Sacramento, California.
He returned to Canada to start a family (there’s always a girl) and found that real estate offered him a natural runway to make a meaningful impact in people’s lives. He is straight-up about helping clients make big decisions with both clarity and confidence, and firmly believes that honest advice is what leads to long-term relationships and trust.
He loves good food, drinks and exploring his High Park/Roncesvalles neighbourhood. He can often be seen with his wife trying to wrangle their two young daughters in that part of the city, or simply enjoying a summer evening cocktail on a patio in the west-end.
