OUR SERVICES Knowledgeable & Candid

At Slate Realty we think of ourselves as advisors and educators, not salespeople driven by quotas. We believe that no property can be perfect, making it all the more important for our team to be well-informed and candid as we guide you through the Toronto real estate market.

I’M BUYING We’ll find you the right home

A smart purchase decision can only be made with all the information—both pros and cons—at your disposal. Our job is to act as your advisor, and to be completely candid with you about those details. Our lives revolve around our homes. We’ll see to it that you find the right one.

While we love to view properties with our clients, we work hard to be more than just a friendly presence.

The best buyer agents must:
  • Understand not only your criteria, but your taste and lifestyle. We ask a lot of questions upfront, which enables us to narrow in on and recommend the best properties for you in the market.
  • Inform you of all of the expenses involved in your real estate purchase, from legal fees to land transfer taxes. We know these are not the good kind of surprises.
  • Give you straight, candid advice on each property. Our job is to give you both pros and cons, to serve as an objective set of eyes, and to ask questions that encourage you to think carefully about any property you’re considering.
  • Know how to give you a competitive advantage in negotiations. In a buyer’s market, we’ll make sure you buy a property at the lowest reasonable price with the best conditions. In a seller’s market, we’ll advise you on how best to present your offer among any competing offers, and we’ll make your offer the strongest possible without simply offering the most money. .
Interested in learning more about us?

Give us a call or send an email. Feel free to test our knowledge about a development or a neighbourhood. You’ll quickly learn that we do things differently than most brokers: you’ll only get transparent, frank advice, and never any sales pitch.

I’m Selling We’ll sell your home
for its maximum value

If you ask 5 appraisers for the value of your home, they’ll all give you a different number. Does that mean they’re all wrong? Absolutely not. The value of your home can be justified on a price spectrum that can vary between 2% - 6%. Our job is not only to make the selling process effortless for you, but to sell your home on the absolutely highest end of that spectrum. And we’re quite good at doing just that.

We love working with sellers. This is when we can flex our creative muscles.

The best listing agents must:
  • Determine how best to position your property in the market. Along with us come a team of Toronto’s best stagers, photographers, videographers, content writers and graphic designers—all working together to showcase your property’s strengths while minimizing its weaknesses. Our objective is for each buyer to not only see themselves living in the property, but to believe it will enhance their quality of life.
  • Determine the value. While most agents review only recently sold properties, we go much further. We assess the constantly changing market conditions in your neighbourhood as well as current competing listings, which in many cases can carry more weight than the recently sold properties.
  • Establish whether it’s prudent to sell or buy first. There are a lot of variables to consider before making this decision, such as the amount you’ll net for your property at current market conditions and which of the two transactions will be easier to accomplish.

416-889-7507 | alex@slaterealty.ca

With his experience working for a large firm and his previous time in wholesale, sales, and design, Alex Hood is as comfortable discussing the ebbs and flows of the market as he is critiquing the layout of a home. While Alex was quite successful working for a large brokerage — so much so that he became recognized as an expert on Toronto condos — he felt the desire to be part of a more intimate team.

In joining Slate Realty Inc., Alex was able to achieve that desire — and Slate gained an agent with a proven track record and a honed approach to sales: “While some agents rely too heavily on technology, others are just too far behind to keep up with today's modern market. When helping buyers, I find a balance of cutting edge technology and an understanding of my clients wants and needs, helps find the best possible value in their criteria. When selling a property, I use this knowledge of what buyers are looking for, to market my listings to the right people.”

Alex’s approach, coupled with his insights into the communities that comprise the GTA, enables him to help his clients make the most important purchase of their lives — in the neighbourhood that best suits their lifestyle.

Adding Nathaniel to our team has been a major plus. When we asked him why he left his career in finance to become a real estate broker, his answer was that he wanted to “do something that left a mark on downtown Toronto. A person’s home has a great impact on their quality of life.”

As a real estate agent, Milan’s always thrilled to encounter clients who are set on achieving home ownership in such a competitive housing market.

“Buying a home in this city is a big deal, and it’s not something that everyone has an opportunity to accomplish. Getting the chance to help buyers take this huge step forward and share in their optimism is so satisfying, and it’s part of what makes this industry extraordinary.”

A natural athlete, an amateur guitarist, and a trained actor, Milan's content discussing workout routines, music and films — or summarising evolving real estate trends and potential listings; it’s a blend of professionalism and personability that clients appreciate.

Sarah Cromie

SALES REPRESENTATIVE

Always calm under pressure, Sarah understands that real estate can be as stressful as it is exhilarating. That’s why this charismatic and personable agent is the kind of realtor who can keep clients motivated throughout the entire process.

Quit-witted and incredibly reliable, Victoria D'Ilario meets all trials and tribulations with a friendly disposition — as well as an admirable gift for multitasking.

Victoria earned her way to a real estate career, achieving a BA while acquiring invaluable customer relations experience and working several jobs to pay the bills. Did we mention she’s good at multitasking? Unsurprisingly, Victoria’s problem-solving skills and professionalism drew the attention of employers, and Victoria was offered a management role at General Motors.

Victoria has been praised by clients for her work ethic and dedication, and Strata is fortunate to have her on the team.

“Customer satisfaction in real estate is all about balance — managing the needs of multiple clients and working to ensure that all of my clientele feel they have my full support and intention. It’s a challenge, but it’s a challenge that brings so much joy.”

Robert Van Rhijn

BROKER OF RECORD

416-912-6445 | robert@slaterealty.ca

As Broker of Record at Slate Realty, Robert manages a team of real estate advisors that has helped thousands of clients make informed choices about where they live. Having founded the brokerage in 2012, Robert was one of the first leaders to successfully introduce data technology to the real estate space. He did this by launching Strata.ca, which has grown into one of the most powerful and trusted sources for condominium data in the Greater Toronto Area.

A thoughtful and pragmatic commentator — Robert and his team are often referenced in media publications, including the Toronto Star, National Post and Globe and Mail. Over the years, he has become a champion for more transparency in Ontario’s real estate market. He believes buyers and sellers should have access to timely data, so they can make even smarter decisions. That is the principle in which Robert founded Slate Realty, and this continued mission is what drives his career today.

“An innovative approach, combined with solid customer service values, is what my brokerage offers to not only our clients — but also realtors wanting to succeed in this competitive space.”

Lorena Beccari

SALES REPRESENTATIVE

416-399-2848 | lorena@slaterealty.ca

Lorena has assisted buyers and sellers in Toronto’s real estate market for over ten years. Her many returning clients are evidence of her skills as a top agent and successful real estate investor—her home was even featured in a prominent interior design magazine. For Lorena, real estate is not a job but a passion. She loves what she does and she does it well.

When we at Slate asked Lorena what sets her apart from other brokers, her answer was: “Most brokers forget that real estate is all about marketing. Staging and advertising are my top priorities when representing sellers. I’ve seen many beautiful properties that could have sold for so much more if they were just staged and presented better. For buyers, it’s the opposite. You need to see beyond the marketing, and determine if the home is right for you. I try to encourage my buyer clients to look at a purchase objectively so they can make the most informed decision.”

Lorena left her position as a director in print and web publications because she knew she could do so much more in real estate. Her skills acquired as a professional marketer for large companies—her connections within the marketing world; her innate artistic talent, and sharp eye—translate into a dedicated professional who knows how to get the best value for her clients.

Organized, compassionate and personable, Jenelle Tremblett knows well the stresses and challenges involved with a move, and strives to streamline the process as much as possible for her clients.

Jenelle graduated from Dalhousie University with a commerce degree; her strong background in marketing and sales has afforded her the skills to steer clients through the home buying and selling process, but it's most often her empathy that leaves a lasting impression. Jenelle is always working to further her clients goals and make their dreams a reality.

647-633-2787 | upsham@slaterealty.ca

A great communicator by nature, Upsham Komboj has a gift for converting the most difficult conversations into a pleasant exchange. It’s a skill he nurtured while working for Air Canada as a flight attendant; if you’ve spent any time travelling, then you know how crucial that skill can be.

Upsham positively loved travelling the globe and absorbing new cultures and experiences, but real estate had always appealed to him. After completing his degree in City studies at the University of Toronto — and gaining considerable expertise in policy formation and the subtleties of city planning — Upsham made the career jump to real estate.

With his tech savvy approach, eye for interior design and considerable market knowledge, Upsham has excelled in the Toronto condo market and has proven himself as a highly efficient member of the Slate team.

"I was drawn to Strata for the boutique environment and the idea of working collaboratively as a team to help my clients navigate the buying and selling process. As we often say, 'None of us are as smart as all of us' and I believe there’s no team better suited to helping clients find a place to call home.”

Cyrus Ghazvini

SALES REPRESENTATIVE

416-505-1150 | cyrus@slaterealty.ca

Cyrus Ghazvini has the luxury of drawing on over 15 years of real estate experience, but in truth, his journey into the industry started long before: growing up in a household with two real estate agents gave Cyrus firsthand knowledge of the highs and lows of a real estate career. Countless agents can call on years of experience, but few can claim to have learned the ins and outs as a child.

Upon completing his BA, Cyrus sought out a career of his own in the industry and soon found prosperity. In time, he would be managing his parent’s brokerage, gaining invaluable on the job experience.

A friendly demeanor and excellent communication skills have been the driving force behind his success, and a lifetime in and around the industry has shown him the necessity of keeping perspective. “Advances in technology and increased transparency has empowered buyers, renters and sellers, but having a competent, knowledgeable agent remains as worthwhile and valuable as ever.”

“A home is the single largest purchase in most people’s lives. It’s a deeply emotional process, which is why I treat real estate as a relationship driven process, rather than a simple transaction. By providing my clients with all of the key information, they are able to make the most informed decision possible.”

Francisco’s no stranger to pressure — he worked as a senior stylist for a decade before making a career turn towards real estate. Though the pressure and the stakes weren’t quite as high as with real estate, it was in the salon that Francisco perfected the art of balancing the interests of multiple clients against tight time constraints.

His driven nature and friendly disposition made for a smooth transition into the real estate industry, where Francisco has swiftly accumulated a portfolio of happy clients.
