Serguei Rozenberg recommends Homelife - Higher Standards

It was a true pleasure to have Olga as our real estate agent when we were looking for an investment property. Olga made the task of finding the perfect real estate look easy - she had a selection of properties to look at ready for us every day, all filtered to our preferences. She kept an eye out for the fresh properties entering the market and pretty soon we were able to purchase a perfect condo on highway 7 and Leslie. The condo was exactly what we needed - within our budget and producing positing cash flow.
We found Olga reliable, punctual and professional - will definitely seek her assistance for our next house hunt!

Jennifer Sauder recommends Homelife - Higher Standards


Throughout our unique experience, Wendy kept us positive and motivated during the staging and purging process of our home. She went above and beyond with anything we needed and ultimately sold our home within a 5 day period. To date, Wendy continues to offer helpful resources to assist us during our transition to our new property.
Wendy is a people person with a vast knowledge and interest in Waterloo Region, as well as surrounding areas. During our home search, she strived to meet our out-of-town needs until an offer on the house of our dreams was accepted in Princeton. Wendy kept a consistent pace respectful to our vision. We did not feel rushed, or delayed. The entire experience has been a positive one.

Thank you, Wendy. Highly recommended!

Mini and Rudy were extremely knowledgeable. Always had an answer to all my questions and concerns. The level of service provided by Mini and Rudy is incomparable. Mini took care of all the finest of details every time I had a concern it was either already taken care of or it would be resolved within a matter of hours. Mini and Rudy always took the time to thoroughly explain all the details involved in every step of the process of acquiring a new property. While there were no real issues in the process of purchasing a new property, every time I had a concern Mini and Rudy were quick to provide a resolution. They certainly went above and beyond the call of duty. My experience with Mini and Rudy was extremely positive, such that I would have no problem recommending them to friends and family. Mini and Rudy did provide a full 360 service such that all I had to do was select the property I wanted and EVERYTHING else was taken care of by Mini and Rudy. The one thing I like most about my experience with Mini and Rudy is that they took care of each and every detail. They anticipated my concerns, needs and wants.

Rickey Sayers recommends Mini & Rudy

Sales Representative & Professional Athlete

Their knowledge in the real estate business is impeccable! Their professionalism is stellar! Communication level was always at 100%. If there was an issue or potential of an issue, they handled it properly and promptly. I've never experience service like this before from any realtor. They are so good, a lot of times dealing with them they had me in 'aw'; Just amazed! It's not just a sale to them, they care about you as the client and getting you into the 'right' home that best fits 'your' wants but furthermore your needs! I strongly recommend these two individuals to anyone that crosses my path and is looking for a home. Friends, family, colleagues, neighbours, church group, family circle, friend of a friend of a friend, stranger on the street; Mini & Rudy is the way to go!

My first encounter with Rudy was pleasant and professional. He showed my partner and I every home we were interested in very thoroughly.

Mohammed Masud Jamil recommends Raziul Afiz

Purchasing Agent

We recently bought a beautiful and spacious home in Oshawa with help and guidance of Mr. Raziul Afiz. He was extremely helpful and friendly. He went details about all of our needs and he answered all of our questions with patience. He shared information that we did not catch or we didn’t ask but eventually it was very helpful in selecting the right home. From the very beginning, he was not the salesperson who only wants to sell but he was always very serious to find out the perfect match for us. Through out the journey of buying a home, we never found him distracted, impatience or irritated. He gave us the feeling that we can call him any time and he has a good practice of answering the calls, even he missed one or two, you can be sure that he will call you back right way. Regarding his professional knowledge, I must say that he poses effective knowledge about the market and customer’s need. He has strong negotiation power to make a better deal. In addition to professional knowledge, I am so impressed about his service, it is excellent and we would love to work with him again. We had some problems with the sellers but professionally handled the situation and resolve it. I would highly recommend Mr. Raziul Afiz because he was better than what we could have hoped for. I wish him every success in his career.

Arthur Noronha recommends Cindy Wen


Agent Cindy Wen was very professional & knowledgeable and it was a great pleasure to have her as our agent. She has very good attributes like being patience, humble and kindness. Cindy Wen went above and beyond her call of duties - she hired a cleaning person and helped us in decluttering the house to make sure that it was in a presentable stage.
I would strongly recommend Cindy Wen to my family and friends.

Chad worked tirelessly for 3 years to find us the perfect home. Even when we thought we had found our dream home Chad pulled out the ace and showed us something even better! He worked so hard through all the little bumps and just when we thought the house wouldn’t close on time he dug in one last time and got us into our home on time! Couldn’t ask for any better!!

Kathi Snell recommends Jackie Harrison

Labour Relations Officer

It is SO important to have the right real estate agent, and I have to say, Jackie was definitely the right agent for us! Jackie is professional, efficient and extremely effective! She really knows the market, is honest, open and direct without being offensive or abrupt. To say she is a hard worker is a total understatement! She is busy and yet it doesn’t effect the amount of time she has to spend with her clients. She was fun and easy to deal with. It was truly a pleasure to work with Jackie, she made the most uncomfortable task of selling our home, satisfying and relatively easy. She is truly personable, warm and considerate while still being an experienced, accomplished, competent and skillful agent. I have never worked with a more capable, talented and energetic agent/broker!

Kirstie Ly recommends Jason McGregor

Jason helped us find an apartment when we first moved to Toronto from Australia and again a year later when we decided we wanted more space.

He is friendly, patient, informative and made finding a home for us such an easy process where we thought it'd be stressful.

There aren't many realtors that live up to the expectation that he delivers and we recommend him to anyone looking for a new home!
