We have known Linda since 2007. To date, Linda has been with us for 2 sales and multiple rentals. Currently, we are working on a purchase. We are very loyal to Linda because she is the best! As a non-resident Canadian, originally from Toronto, I firmly believe in the investment value of the Toronto downtown market. After years of fumbling, and losing, with real estate investments in other parts of the world, we decided to return to Canada. We count on Linda and she does not disappoint. Linda is very professional, effective, resourceful, and most importantly a pleasure to work with. I know that most will have read the previous sentence and have only seen a string of positive adjectives. Every word in that sentence is merited. When you’re working with Linda, she speaks to you as a partner and there is no doubt that she is on your side. During our first sale, Linda brought us a reasonable o…

Linda is very professional, effective, resourceful, and most importantly a pleasure to work with. I know that most will have read the previous sentence and have only seen a string of positive adjectives. Every word in that sentence is merited. When you’re working with Linda, she speaks to you as a partner and there is no doubt that she is on your side. During our first sale, Linda brought us a reasonable offer which we declined. Most agents would have tried to persuade us into taking the offer or given up and moved on to easier sales. Not Linda. She simply went back to doing what she does best and, within 3 days, we had 2 competitive bids which concluded in a sale. Linda does her homework and will not waste her time. Everything is well researched and presented to you in a professional manner that anyone can understand. Recently we sold a unit that was not yet closed with the builder. This sale was very complicated as most agents don’t understand the process and it requires coordination with Lawyers and the builder. Linda worked with everyone, helped other agents through the process, and eventually got it done. Additionally, thanks to Linda’s diligence, we have never had any problems or concerns with any renter Linda has put into our units. We have recommended Linda to several of our friends. They have all been extremely pleased with Linda and have thanked us for the referral. Thank you, Linda!

After 5 happy years living in our townhouse near Trinity Bellwoods, and with a permanent return home to England planned for the summer, Anthony and I found ourselves at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic with a property to sell quickly in what seemed impossible circumstances. (I was in lockdown in the UK, A was in lockdown in Toronto.) A chance introduction to Linda Chu, of Sotheby’s Realty, and her partner, Lisa-Marie Doorey, moved us within hours from anxiety to confident action and optimism. Linda and the team took over every aspect of what was an extraordinarily complex operation achieving a full makeover of our property and garden in lockdown; assisting with packing and temporary storage; connecting us with all the trades we needed in a detailed schedule of regulated, safe visits.

After 5 happy years living in our townhouse near Trinity Bellwoods, and with a permanent return home to England planned for the summer, Anthony and I found ourselves at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic with a property to sell quickly in what seemed impossible circumstances. (I was in lockdown in the UK, A was in lockdown in Toronto.) A chance introduction to Linda Chu, of Sotheby’s Realty, and her partner, Lisa-Marie Doorey, moved us within hours from anxiety to confident action and optimism. Linda and the team took over every aspect of what was an extraordinarily complex operation achieving a full makeover of our property and garden in lockdown; assisting with packing and temporary storage; connecting us with all the trades we needed in a detailed schedule of regulated, safe visits. We were overwhelmingly impressed by the skill and attention to detail they put into preparing all the legal and professional documents (many more necessary than usual because of COVID) and their background research, ensuring that when the property came to market everything had been considered, in advance. They were in daily contact, checking in, constantly cheerful and patient, smoothing over problems, and their exceptional experience shone through. This was ultimately demonstrated in their advice regarding the sale price and timing we received an offer over our asking price after just 4 viewing days. We can’t thank Linda and her team enough for going the extra mile (when they, too, were in lockdown!), giving us the very best of their professional advice, and achieving a first-class result for us.

My wife and I worked most closely with Linda Chu and we were deeply touched by her deep and sympathetic understanding of our situation, her knowledge and professionalism (she always explained things clearly to me and demonstrated an excellent understanding of the market), and most especially by her kindness, thoughtfulness, and generosity. She never hesitated to go the extra mile, e.g. I asked her if she might be able to find a home for our 12 and a half foot tall ficus tree, which we were unable to take with us in the move. It seemed to be more wishful thinking on my part than a request. So imagine my surprise when my phone pinged a couple of days before our closing date and lo and behold there is a picture of the tree in its new home. It’s hard for me to say how touched I was by that act of kindness (we had lived with that tree for over thirty years). She also returned our internet mod…

Nothing seemed to be too big or too small. More professionally and practically, she worked well with the person who staged our home and she was able to help us get a price for the sale that went way beyond our expectations. The selling and the move have been such a difficult process for us and we both feel that we could never have done it, if not for Linda.

I worked with Lisa Marie on two properties: One recreational property in northern Ontario and one in Manhattan. In both instances, Lisa Marie’s professionalism was remarkable. She quickly ‘got me’ and worked incredibly hard to get the best price and more importantly, the best property. Her diligence, preparedness, and overall care she puts into her work are evident every step of the way. For the NY property, we flew down on a Friday and within 48 hours, we made an offer which was subsequently accepted by the seller. The deal would not have happened so quickly had it not been for the unbelievable amount of planning and work done by Lisa Marie ahead of time. We physically viewed 17 properties over two afternoons. All had been pre-vetted and detailed in spreadsheets by neighborhood, pricing, and evaluated against my “wish list”. Lisa Marie is the agent any home buyer wants: trustworthy, dil…

Lisa Marie is the agent any home buyer wants: trustworthy, diligent, thorough, and completely in touch with her clients’ needs. I would recommend her to anyone and for any market. She does the work needed to get you what you want.

When we decided to sell our Cabbagetown house last spring we made a checklist of all the things we would need, and like in a Realtor®. Then the interviews began, Lisa Marie was our second interview (we take these things seriously!) and after 20 minutes we knew we found our agent! Lisa Marie and her team dug in right away with tips, advice, and a complete detailed checklist to get us ready to list. In a matter of days, our house never looked better, and the polished marketing materials were ready to go. The many showings and meetings were expertly managed, and Lisa Marie went beyond the call of duty to ensure every single detail was covered. Including finding the perfect white hydrangeas for our front garden during a freak cold snap and snowfall! (is it time to mention how particular I can be as a client?) with her wonderful sense of humor, market savvy, and eye to detail, Lisa Marie inst…

We would not hesitate for a minute to call on her again; let the referrals begin!
