25 Years Strong!!!

POSTED ON October 31st  - POSTED IN Elli's Archives, Toronto Real Estate News

As hard as it is for me to believe, this year will mark my 25th year providing real estate services. It’s been a fantastic journey and I have enjoyed every moment of it.

As a school teacher, I always had a strong interest in Real Estate. As I moved to sales with Mary Kay Cosmetics, my fervor for Real Estate grew and it was then that I decided to pursue a career in the hobby that I loved.

Since then, I have had the honour of holding esteemed titles such as; #1 Agent in Canada for Royal LePage for 12 consecutive years and #1 Agent in Toronto for the last 21 years; both of which, I am extremely proud of as it is a true reflection of recognition for hard work and dedication. Every sale still brings about the same adrenaline rush it did 25 years ago when I sold my first condo and it is this excitement that keeps me going.

All in all when it boils down to it, it’s not just the passion for my job that drives me, it’s all the experiences both good and bad and the people that I’ve had the pleasure to assist and of some of those professional relationships have evolved great friendships.

Here’s to 25 years strong…cheers!!!!

Summer can be an excellent time to enter the real estate market. Listing your property while the yard is lush and rooms are filled with sunshine shows your home off at its best. Buyers can conveniently incorporate open houses into a weekend stroll and appointments are not likely to be cancelled due to snow storms!

Enjoy the beautiful weather while it is here, and we hope to hear from you soon!

A large family who enjoys kids running around all the time and hosting lots of parties will love this house on Timberlane Drive, says listing agent Elli Davis of Royal LePage Real Estate Services.

The grand and spacious home was built 18 years ago and was extensively redesigned and redecorated about five years ago. “It’s in move-in condition,” she says. “It’s the first time it’s been offered for sale.”

The lower level has a 33×17-foot indoor pool with a hand-painted mural, a spa and a change room. Nanny’s quarters, direct access to a five-car underground garage and an elevator that offers access to all three levels of the home are practical features.

For those who don’t have a summer home, this property also offers outdoor living. “You can open the doors on the lower level and go outside to the ravine,” she says.

A gas fireplace in the living room, a separate dining room, a powder room and a panelled library are main-floor features. A kitchen, with two islands, lends itself to use as a kosher kitchen or two chefs in the family. There are two sets of everything, three dishwashers and a pantry for a Passover kitchen, she says. The family room off the kitchen has a walkout to a deck.

The main floor also has a study, a two-storey skylit foyer and a bedroom with a three-piece bathroom. “The bedroom would make an ideal play area,” Ms. Davis says.

Three electric air cleaners, three forced-air gas furnaces, two washers and dryers and an alarm system are other features of the seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom brick home.

Timberlane Drive, in the York Downs area, “is known for its large lots, exclusivity and quiet location away from the hustle and bustle, yet easily accessible to the highway,” she says. “A park, TTC, shops and synagogues are nearby and it’s a stone’s throw from Earl Bales Park.”
