Evelyn has been an award-winning Realtor since 2010, but her Rate-My-Agent awards mean the most because they are a direct result of reviews from CLIENT experiences and outstanding successes. As a result, she has been Voted the #1 Mississauga Agent in 2022 and 2020, #2 Best Mississauga Agent in 2019, and the Top 100 Canadian Agents in 2020. Evelyn started in real estate at 24 years of age as a landlord. As a real estate investor, she continued to purchase, renovate, and rent additional investment properties for over twenty-five years. Concurrent with her real estate investing, she worked in sales and promotions for various companies. Each successive role developed her understanding that a mastery of her product and service was essential to providing value in a business relationship, that professional communication and presentation is a differentiator, and the need to quickly adapt to changing circumstances is critical to negotiating success. Evelyn invests passionately in her clients' total experience. Knit from the highest of ethics, Evelyn routinely rejects any challenge to her client's best interests. Evelyn shares common character traits with other top performers; she is obsessed with details and is driven to outperform her competition, but unlike other Realtors, client success is her only measure of personal success. Never one for simple transactions, Evelyn is a serial entrepreneur and a top serial performer incapable of anything less than 100% empathy for the lifelong relationships she has built with her clients.
This is our second time working with Evelyn and both experiences have been exceptional. She is a real professional. We had a difficult property to sell as it was tenanted, but Evelyn managed to sell it quickly and at a price and closing date that worked for us. She is knowledgeable, highly responsive and a pleasure to work with. - Mark Gavel
Reply: I'm thrilled we were able to sell despite the market shift and the challenges we had with the tenants. Although it wasn't the price we originally thought we could get, we were able to sell when so many other properties haven't been able to. There were 93 Semi listings in Frith's local area from September to November: 35 properties were terminated or suspended without selling (removed from the market) ONLY 24 properties sold during the same period 34 properties are still sitting on the market waiting to be sold ONLY 1/3 of properties SOLD! Those are some crazy numbers that really indicate how well we did. Thank you so much for choosing to trust me with your home! I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to be by your side through this important event in your life. xo
Evelyn and Marcia are the best. I've successfully purchased 3 homes with their help. Every one of my purchases was a great experience. Always happy to help and always making sure everything with my purchase goes smooth. Highly recommended and I personally will always go to them for anything related to real estate. - Juan Dussan
Reply: Congratulations, Juan on your new home!!! So proud of you for building your wealth through real estate with your 3rd property! We are so pleased to have negotiated a purchase price for $50k under asking and $100k under budget for you! Wishing you and your family so much happiness in your new home!
We found Marcia and Evelyn through rate-my-agent and are very glad we did! We reached out through their website and their response was very prompt. As first-time home buyers we were quite anxious about paperwork and contracts but they were very understanding and accommodating! We had a couple chats about what we were looking for and whether that would be appropriate for our budget. We never felt pressured to spend more than we planned and Evelyn and Marcia made sure to find amazing homes that fell within our budget. I also want to highly praise their professionalism and putting their clients first. We found a home that my Wife and I were very excited about and wanted to make an offer. While it could have been a very quick sale that most likely would have been accepted, Marcia made sure to emphasize that we look around at the neighbourhood first. I'm glad we did! We shortly realized that it wasn't what we were looking for and moved on to other properties. Marcia and Evelyn also did a great deal of research comparing surrounding home prices and recent sales to create a very competitive offer. We expected to go a bit higher than we ended up closing on, and it's all thanks to them! If you're like us who didn't know any Realtors, I can assure you that Marcia and Evelyn are amazing at what they do, all while respecting you the buyer. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a Realtor and plan to continue working with them for as long as we can. - Maria B
Reply: Congratulations Maria and Justin on purchasing your very first home!!!! That we earned your trust and you had a fantastic experience is all we could wish for. Ensuring we do the research to protect our clients from making a bad purchase or overpaying is critical to protecting our clients. That you appreciate the work we do, means the world to us. Wishing you many years of incredible moments and memories in your new home! Congrats again!!!
Evelyn is a very lovely person to deal with , she actually really care about her job and us. She rioritized our needs when looking for our new home , did above and beyond to chase down the property we wanted that was off market already and we were able to make a deal with sellers. Thank you for being a genuine caring person Evelyn ! - Lorena Ayora
Reply: I'm so happy to have been part of your life during your new home adventure! To see your delight when we are in your new place lights up my days. It's such a GORGEOUS home, and I wasn't going to let the fact that it was no longer on the market stop me from getting it for you. Thank you for your trust! Wishing you and the family the most incredible years to come in your new home. xo
Evelyn helped us sell our home for over asking price in a timely fashion. She was very responsive and provide clear instructions along the way. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell there home with a top agent! - Alan Czechowski
Reply: Thanks Alan! I am thrilled that I was able to sell your home for the HIGHEST sale on the street EVER! $365,100 OVER ASKING $165,000 MORE than 2 Comparable Homes that just sold in 2023 on the same street 5 Days on the Market! 7 Offers! Thanks for your trust and all your hard work doing everything I asked. It PAID OFF!
I found Evelyn via rate my agent. I interviewed 3 Realtors before making my choice. Evelyn guided me through the entire process, did her due diligence was honest and open. She took my opinions into account and provided feedback throughout the entire process. I wasn't expecting to find a property so quickly within my price range. Best of all Evelyn made sure that she was consistently watching out for me and protecting me as a buyer. - Nusheen
Reply: Congratulations, Nusheen, on beating out 2 other buyers without being the highest offer on your new home!!! It’s a tough market for buyers AGAIN, with multiple offers on most well-priced properties. Despite that, we made sure you were in the best position to win by: 1. Confirming with your lender we could safely waive the financing condition; 2. Partnered with a lawyer who reviewed the status certificate the same day; 3. Wrote in special conditions to have the seller remove the Kitec plumbing; 4. Reduced our offer price by 11k from what it could have sold for to offset a potential special assessment. We made sure you were fully protected AND waived your condition to enable you to successfully purchase a unit surrounded by ravined views!!! Thank you for your trust! Wishing you many years of future happiness in your new home!!!
Evelyn is amazing! After the first time she took us to a listing I told my fiance I had just found our realtor for life. Evelyn is so knowledgeable. We were first time home buyers and were still trying to figure out what we wanted. We switched from wanting a townhouse to a condo- for budgetary reasons but ultimately found a townhouse! We didnt think we could get everything we wanted in our budget- but we did! She was so patient and helped us explore all our options. That's pretty standard I guess for a realtor. But shed literally say no this place isnt good enough- as opposed to making a quick sale. When we talked to her about raising our budge she actually suggested we not stretch ourselves and keep being patient. She could have literally told us to increase our budget to increase her bottom line- BUT SHE DIDN'T! I dont know a single realtor who doesn't want to earn more. She saved us from bidding on places where owners had d-i-yed repairs. She pointed out flaws we couldnt see when we were blinded by a shiny well staged place. Evelyn was so patient, extremely attentive, well-informed- her experience definitely shows! Evelyn always made us feel like her only clients- giving us all her time- never rushing us- being easy to reach 24/7, answering our million questions. We ended up buying a townhouse under budget and getting EVERYTHING we wanted! I couldn't be happier with the service Evelyn provided. We have definitely found our dream home and our realtor for life. - Georgina Pimenta
Reply: I can't tell you how thrilled I am that we found a place that checked off all the items on your wish list AND for under budget! I didn't want you to be stuck with a lemon or have any regrets. I appreciate how you were open to my advice and did everything it took to avoid multiple offers, so we got it for a great price! You are both sweethearts, and I'm lucky to have you as my forever clients! xoxo
Evelyn was so professional and amazing to deal with. A few times we were ready to make an offer and she strongly recommended against it due to certain issues, that right from the start built my trust. Her research is unbelievable and she's always keeping you in the loop and even spoke with our lawyer and mortgage broker to make sure everything was good. I definitely had a hard time trusting a realtor in the beginning so decided to look at cashback Realtors and i soon learned you get what you pay for it. Evelyn will make sure you don't overpay and more important that the neighbourhood is in a good area and that there's no major potential issues. We are so happy with our purchase and listening to Evelyn made our dream come true. If you're looking for a realtor look no further as you'll have someone in your corner. Thank you so much Evelyn! - Mikail Fancy
Reply: After having negative experiences with other realtors, I completely understood why it was difficult for you to trust that someone had your best interest at heart. The look on your face when you saw your new home was priceless! The pure happiness from you both when we avoided multiple offers and successfully negotiated this purchase is why I do this job. Your trust means the world to me. I'm so happy for you both!!! xo
Evelyn has worked with me to make my desires a reality. This is my 2nd time working with Evelyn for purchasing an home. Evelyn is very well versed at dealing with other real estate agents when it’s came to questions I had and preparing my offer. She educated me on how we should approach my offer and how to protect myself as the buyer in the sale. I got the property for less than asking price which was wonderful! She also arranged other services for me: the home inspection, lawyer. Evelyns cool, calm mindset kept my anxiety low and gave me the confidence she would get the job done – and she did! I will continue to use Evelyn as my realtor and have recommended her to my family and friends. Thank you Evelyn! - Cassandra
Reply: Thanks Cass, and Congratulations on your gorgeous new home! I have such a blast working with you that even the Home Inspector gets a kick out of our conversations - lol. I'm so relieved we walked away from the 1st home we had an offer on - that was too many 'issues' for you to deal with. I'm even happier the second home we tried didn't work out - it had a gorgeous ravine but came with too much work, and the buyers overpaid for the house given its condition. But, like Goldilocks, the 3rd property was just right! Beautifully move-in ready, huge roof-top patio for entertaining, and great location! I can't wait to get you incredible results on selling your current home!!!
We were very comfortable working with Evelyn Lacerda. She knew her stuff, did her research, advised us well, and kept us advised every step of the way. We were very happy with her results. - Alexa Colenbrander
Reply: Congrats Alexa and Anneke, on the sale of your family's home of 62 years! Clients like you are a joy and pleasure to work with. I'm so happy that despite the market conditions where so many other homes are sitting on the market without selling, we were able to sell for $222,000 over asking, with 9 offers, and in only 5 days!!!! Thank you for your trust and wishing you so much happiness in your next phase of life! xo
Evelyn has been invaluable on both the buying and selling side. She was able to perform even with the chaos of the market. She is experienced, meticulous, driven, and very personable. I highly recommend Evelyn!! - Michelle Hatch
Reply: It was definitely a chaotic market, with only 1 in 4 homes selling at that time. It took saying no to 4 offers on Day 5 and working with 2 new offers on the morning of Day 6, but we did what it took to get you top results!!! You are a beautiful soul, and it was a pleasure to be by your side through your quest to move closer to your daughter and grandchildren. Your new home is beyond stunning, and I know you will enjoy every second in your botanical garden of Eden. I Look forward to coffee with you overlooking your waterfall pond once you settle in!
Evelyn was amazing! We had not moved in 24 years so we were very nervous about the process. We contacted Evelyn and she responded immediately. She visited us to discuss our sale and within minutes we felt comfortable and knew Evelyn was our choice. She provided references and step by step details of the process. Evelyn was extremely organized and professional. Evelyn went above and beyond getting the house staged, listed and open houses scheduled. The traction and interest she created was unmatched. We sold in five days and over list! Evelyn’s care didn’t end after the sale. She has followed up many times to ensure everything is perfect. We highly recommend Evelyn to anyone selling their home. Evelyn is simply the best!! Professional and one of the nicest people you will ever meet! - Douglas Henry
Reply: Congratulations Doug and Nancy on the sale of your beautiful home. You both have been incredible to work with and I’m so blessed to have been part of your lives. I’m so happy we could beat the current declining market by selling your place for $95,000 OVER ASKING, with 6 OFFERS, and 111% OF LIST PRICE! Wishing you so much happiness in your adventures to come! I’m the lucky one to have you as clients! xoxo
Evelyn is a caring and professional agent. We looked at numerous homes before finding the right choice for us and Evelyn remained upbeat and patient. We would highly recommend her services and are extremely happy in our new home. - Kent Mosur
Reply: Thanks Kent! I really enjoyed our time house-hunting together and I’m thrilled I could negotiate $345,000 LESS than a similar house that sold on the same street just 3 months earlier! It is a stunning home, and I wish you so much happiness in sharing your lives there in the years to come!
Evelyn did a fantastic job - highly recommended her!!! Her recommendations and staging made the property look great - and we got 23 offers and sold the property in 7 days - while other properties still sit on the market. - Tony Priolo
Reply: Tony, your trust means so much. You and your family had so much on your plate, but you still did everything I requested to assist with the sale and it worked! I loved having the opportunity to work with you again. I'm fortunate to have an amazing client like you! Thanks again!
Evelyn is a terrifically knowledgeable realtor, very up-to-date on current market, and gave excellent advice. She really focuses on the people involved with the transaction. Her selling strategy was on the mark. - Caryl Parsons
Reply: Congratulations Caryl on your incredible results!!! $295,000 Over Asking, 11 Offers, 125% of List Price, SOLD in 5 Days, 56 Showings!!! The market has shifted and many homes are not getting offers on their offer date. Properties are selling for less than what they were getting in February, BUT, a talented Realtor will still get top results. I’m so happy that I could do that for you. Congrats again!
Evelyn and Marcia have been wonderful agents with endless knowledge of the market and unlimited patience for novices like us. We couldn't be happier with the agents we chose to work with and are certified customers for life! We sold our home and bought two new properties in the span of 3 months - normally that would be a stressful experience, but with Marcia and Evelyn's help, it has been a breeze. LOVED working with them and truly cant recommend these ladies enough :) - Aliya E
Reply: Congratulations, Aliya, on your very FIRST HOME! I can't believe we were able to find a brand new, super cute unit in a boutique building in STREETSVILLE!! You are going to LOVE being able to walk everywhere! I'm thrilled we found your very first home in an incredible location AND close to your mom's new home! We are extra blessed to have you and your mom as clients. Marcia and I pinch ourselves every day to have clients like you ladies. xoxoxo
Evelyn was very helpful throughout the transaction process. She had a helpful network of contacts (lawyers, lenders, etc.) who could assist me throughout the offer and closing process. Evelyn stands out as an agent with her responsiveness - I think the most I had to wait to hear back from a text or email was a couple of hours if she was in a meeting. Moreover her intuition with respect to negotiating was welcome for a first-time home buyer like myself. - Abdul
Reply: Congratulations, Abdul, on your new home! I am thrilled that you paid $144,000 LESS than a similar unit you wanted to purchase just 2 months earlier in the same building! CRAZY!!!! I'm so happy we got you the property you wanted, with a closing date that ensured a lower mortgage rate and AVOIDED competition!! Congrats again!
Evelyn is a professional realtor, and her years of experience shows. She knows the market well, and conducts a thorough analysis before any action. She helped us get the maximum value for our home, through excellent staging, maximum showings, several offers and final negotiation on price. We are very pleased with the results and would definitely recommend her. - Troy
Reply: Thanks, Troy! It has been a pleasure working with your family. With so much new inventory hitting the market, most other listings were getting very few showings. Despite the market shift, we generated 14 offers (while other listings didn't receive any offers on their offer date), and we were the highest sale on Donegal EVER!!!! $400k Over Asking in just 5 days on the market! Thank you, Troy and Judy, for all your hard work! It definitely paid off!!
Our experience in working with Evelyn was like no other. She is the cream of the crop In real estate and is professional in every aspect of the industry. Super efficient and responsive to all of our questions and comforting to us at a stressful time. I have never met anybody so organized and on top of their game. We would recommend her services to anyone. She listed and sold our house for the highest amount in our area all within five days. - Debbie and Ron Beausoleil
Reply: Congratulations Deb and Ron on your incredible results!!! I was so flattered you remembered and wanted to work with me, your old neighbour, 12 years after we moved. It was unfortunate that while we were preparing your home for sale, the market completely shifted, and many homes were not getting offers/selling by the time we hit the market. When the real estate market shifts, it's essential to have an agent with the talent and skill to strategically position your home to outperform the market. I'm so happy that I could do that for you. So thrilled for the next chapter in your life to begin. Congrats again!!! xoxoxo
Evelyn worked so hard for us. She was so professional and yet so friendly. She is super organized and kept us informed throughout the process. We were so happy with the results she achieved for us. - Rubina Esmail
Reply: Congrats Rubina & Aliya!!!! I'm so thrilled at the incredible result we were able to achieve in this changing market. HIGHEST CONDO TOWHNHOME SALE IN MEADOWVALE VILLAGE EVER! $281,000 Over Asking, 133% of List Price, 5 Days on the Market, 6 Offers! Thank you for your trust. xo
Evelyn is an extremely professional agent with excellent negotiatiing skills. She is friendly, understanding, and always keeps her client's best interests at heart. We have had more than one excellent experience with her and are happy to give her a glowing review and recommendation. - Riaz
Reply: I'm over the moon we were finally able to get you into the building you wanted!!!!!!!!! I know it was tough walking away from the first property we successfully bid on, but after my inspector and plumber confirmed the Kitec issues, I couldn't let you take on that liability. It has been the worst buyer's market I've ever experienced. However, the letter I wrote about your family, and the relationship I built with the listing agent, helped us significantly with our win. Congratulations Riaz!
Finding a house for our family of 6 was no easy task. After weeks of searching, we found a home that addressed our many needs. Evelyn's professionalism and years of experience helped us to secure our forever home and we will always be grateful. Evelyn is the agent you want on your side! She truly cares about her clients like they are family and her passion for her job is evident. I highly recommend and trust Evelyn Lacerda! - Judy De Souza
Reply: It was the worst buyer market I've ever experienced but I couldn't be more thrilled that we found you the most fantastic home that met your family's needs. The letter I wrote about your family and the relationship I was able to build with the listing agent helped us significantly with our win. I wanted that house for you so badly I did what it took to make it yours. :) Congratulations!!
Evelyn helped us find our first home. She was always available. We could not ask for a better agent or person to help us find our home in such a crazy market. Thank you so much Evelyn! You made our dreams come true! - Kerrie Trottier
Reply: Congratulations Kerrie & Wasi on beating out the competition on this beautiful home!!! The Seller's upgrades are GORGEOUS and WOW - what an incredible view of the creek! I'm so pleased that your very first home is so stunning!!! So excited for this new chapter in your life!!! Congrats again!
Evelyn was such a knowledgeable agent and she guided me through all the steps needed to prepare and get my home on the market. (painting, decluterring, small handyman jobs, carpet cleaning). The team provided all the needed contractors and were always there to answer any questions. The photographs and video made my home look so welcoming. There was so much interest. Evelyn handled the listing like a pro and was able to negotiate an excellent price for my home. We sold for over 300K overasking and I am beyond thrilled. I would definitely recommend Evelyn. - Uma Bhandari
Reply: Thank you so much Uma! Even I was shocked at how much we sold your home for - lol. 184 showings in 5 days. Over 35 offers (agents were still calling me after we accepted the winning offer). We actually sold your home for $460,100 over asking and $125,000 more than the last highest sale of a more renovated comparable. I'm so thrilled we were able to surpass your expectations and generate extra money for your well-deserved retirement!
Working with Evelyn was a very positive experience. She was prepared, professional, knowledgeable, friendly and really great to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell their property. - Michael Andrejas
Reply: Thanks Mike! Talk about perseverance paying off! We found the perfect home on the same street as your parents. Unfortunately, our offer came in second place. However, the winning bid was conditional, so I continued to follow up with the listing agent to secure our position if the other offer fell through. Happily, the other buyer backed out, and the listing agent gave us first dibs to make it yours because of my persistence and ability to make both the seller and agent fall in love with you. Happy dance!
We found Evelyn on Rate My Agent and chose her based on her raving reviews. We’re so glad we did, she completely lived up to those reviews. She really listened to what we wanted and delivered. She gives the same time and effort to all her clients. We would definitely recommend her! Thank you for everything Evelyn! - Kiran Bassan
Reply: My pleasure! Despite the sale not being as easy as we expected, I'm so pleased that we rejected the first two offers and got you a much higher offer with your ideal closing date. Our patience and ability to push through the challenges paid off! Thank you and Terry for working so hard and trusting me with your home!!!
If you are looking for an agent who is knowledgeable, approachable, and has great experience under her belt, Evelyn is your agent! My partner and I feel so lucky that we worked with Evelyn in purchasing our first home. She took her time to get to know us and understood what we envisioned in a home. When accompanying us to viewings, she pointed out details that we would have not noticed if we went by ourselves. One of the qualities about Evelyn that we really appreciated was her communication style. We wanted an agent who we could have a high point of contact with, as our previous agent was very slow to respond. Evelyn was very timely and prompt with getting back to us via text, phone, or email. Overall, we felt that she had our best interest at heart and took good care of us. We are happy to say that within just a couple weeks of working with her, we put in our first and only offer and got accepted for a home we are so excited to move into! We look forward to working with her again in the future if an opportunity arises. We will definitely be recommending Evelyn to all our friends and family that are looking to buy/sell a home in Mississauga/GTA. Evelyn, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the home buying process smooth! - Jin
Reply: Jin, you and Albert have been incredible clients! I love that you asked lots of questions and really wanted to understand how things work. You were successful with your first offer because you adapted to the current market conditions and allowed me to help get your ducks in a row. I'm thrilled we beat out the competition to get your very first new home! You were so easy to work with, and I'm lucky to have connected with you through Rate-My-Agent. xoxo
Evelyn is first a ‘people person’, then a successful realtor. She really gets to know her clients personally and then is able to work with and meet their expectations, hopes, dreams and desires. No stone is unturned from the beginning of a purchase and/or sale, right to the end of a successful event. Evelyn goes beyond the client's expectations, helping them all the way through the process including after a successful sale and/or purchase, she never leaves your side assisting with lenders, lawyers, answering your questions and emailing her ‘Closing Do’s and Don’t’s, The Next Steps' checklist with specific timelines and information for a smooth transition to your next destination. I have known Evelyn for many years in the hopes that one day we could work together. She has also been there to answer any questions that I might have had about real estate, even though I wasn't ready until recently. In my books, she is the No. 1 Realtor in all of Mississauga and I highly recommend her and her team to handle all of your real estate needs. You won't be disappointed, I guarantee it! Margaret - Margaret Mahood
Reply: Margaret, nothing makes me happier than hearing that you felt helped and supported during your journey with me. I'm the lucky one for having such a good-hearted and incredible client. You jumped to do everything I recommended, and it paid off when we beat out other offers to win your lovely condo exactly where you wanted and with beautiful views!! Congratulations on this next phase of your life! xoxoxo
I would highly recommend Evelyn. She is knowledgeable in the sales service she provides and is a pleasure to work with. She is always available to contact and replies to calls and messages promptly. - Dan Pavlovic
Reply: Dan, I am in awe of how incredible you are. Kind, diligent, and so easy to work with. We knocked this one out-of-the-park, selling in only 5 days, for $256,000 over asking!!! The new family is going to love this house every bit as much as your family has. Congratulations!
Evelyn has been extremely professional in her dealing, guided us on every step, extremely professional. Kept us updated through out the showing, feedbacks from potential customers and kept us updated during offers. Highly recommended. - Ibrahim Hamid
Reply: Thank you very much Ibrahim! I know that some of my recommendations seemed a little strange to you, but WOW, did they pay off! 89 showings in 5 days, 12 offers, and $301,000 over asking!!! Thank you for trusting me! I've really enjoyed my time with your family.
Had an excellent experience with Evelyn. Extremely knowledgeable, confident, professional and good at what she does! She made sure we were comfortable, our questions were answered and we were happy. Lots of advice provided to get the house in the best shape for listing. kept us updated with timelines and next steps, even after the sale was done. Uses the best of technology for great pictures/virtual tour, communications, and viewing appointments. She really works hard for you! She loves her work and it shows! - Nadia Ahmad
Reply: Nadia - I'm so thrilled that your brother found me on Rate-My-Agent and referred me to you. I immediately connected with your family and understood we needed to be flexible to accommodate the various options you were considering. It all worked out, and now you are in the home you most wanted!!! I'm so thrilled for you guys! I look forward to helping your dad in his next transition. Thank you so much for your trust! xo
We quickly sold our house in 5 days thanks to Evelin and her group. What we didn’t know is that required a lot of preparations and we got a big help and clear instructions from Evelin. She did clearly explain how whole selling process looks like. - Dorota Maslanka
Reply: Dorota, I'm am thrilled that we sold your home for $321,000 OVER Asking and $260,000 MORE than the last highest sale on your street! Thank you and George for allowing us to kick you out of your home for 5 days to accommodate the 111 showings we received. Your hard work paid off with 15 OFFERS! You are the sweetest couple with the biggest hearts! It has been such a pleasure to work with you both! xoxoxoxoxo
We have used Evelyn Lacerda for the sale of two of our homes and the purchase of one home. She is a wealth of knowledge and gave us great advice to help us sell our home at the highest price and quickly. She is extremely attentive and supportive. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in and around the GTA. - Deanne Alphonso
Reply: Thanks so much Deanne! I know you were unsure about some of my suggestions on how to handle your listing, but you trusted me and we sold for $126,100 over asking in 5 days! Happy Dance! I adore your family and I'm so happy to be part of your transition to new things. xoxoxo
Evelyn was fantastic. We went through a couple realtors before we met her and she stood out from the first phone call. Very professional, took the time to really understand what we were looking for and executed. We purchased our first home within 30 days of working with Evelyn. You should try her. She will get you what you want on the buy or sell side of the transaction! - Geordie
Reply: Geordie, you and Alex have been amazing clients! I'm so grateful you were referred to me. I love that you are eager to take on projects and build your wealth through real estate. It's going to be an amazing adventure for you both. This house was meant to be yours! It was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Can't wait to see the end result of your reno! xoxo
Evelyn was a phenomenal real estate agent! Within one week of contacting Evelyn, we found and purchased our first home, which was a much better property than we ever dreamed we could get. Evelyn contacted immediately after we reached out to her through this website. She spent time getting to know what we were looking for and how she could best help us. As soon as our conversation was done, she sent us many property listings that were exactly what we were looking for. When we gave Evelyn a list of the properties we were interested, she researched them thoroughly, including finding out what similar properties in the area had sold for to ensure that we were only looking at places that were likely to sell within our set budget, which is something we would never have thought to consider. Then, she very quickly set up appointments with at all of the available properties on our next available day, which made it incredibly easy for us to see our houses of interest! When looking at each of the properties, Evelyn always had a keen eye for any problems or concerns that my partner and I might miss, such as evidence of water damage, neglect, or issues with flooring and foundation. She made sure that we were not settling for anything less than a fantastic property, and pointing out anything that would require us to put in money to fix after the purchase so that we did not purchase a property we would come to regret. Then, when we chose our dream property, she very quickly put together our offer and worked directly with the selling agent to make sure our bid was responded to quickly, as well as providing a fantastic letter of interest on behalf of us as first time buyers. When the sellers expressed that they wanted a higher bid from us, Evelyn expertly negotiated a price that we were comfortable with (lower than the highest price we told her we could go) even though it led to a slightly lower commission for her. She absolutely showed that she was on our side throughout the entire process. Even more importantly, when the deal was signed, she continued to support us. She arranged a home inspection for us, recommended a fantastic lawyer, and made sure we knew exactly what the next steps were and how to take care of them. When working with Evelyn, I felt confident that no small detail would ever be missed. Evelyn allowed my partner and I to focus on the excitement of buying our first home without worrying that we would fall in love with a home that would not realistically sell in our price range or that would end up having multiple problems when we moved in. She is a phenomenal real estate agent and my partner and I will be working with her again if ever we need a real estate agent. I would wholeheartedly recommend Evelyn to anyone who is looking to buy a home! - Polina Myrox
Reply: Polina, you and Tyler are dream clients! You two asked the right questions, learned quickly, had reasonable expectations and were willing to act fast when necessary. Beyond that, you and Tyler are so lovely and sweet. I'm so happy we found you such an incredible place for such a great price so quickly, but a little sad that I didn't get to spend more time with you. Our relationship will never be over though, and I am always here for anything you need. xoxo
Evelyn went above and beyond for us. We had a very short timeline to buy a home and Evelyn made sure that we found a home within our budget and taste (in the heat of the ON housing market) She is patient yet persistent and won't rest until her clients are happy. We loved working with her and she comes highly recommended! She is a Force! - Jason and Kinya Baker
Reply: Wow - I was blown away with how quickly you guys adapted to the GTA Real Estate Market. You both were so easy to work with despite how difficult the market is. I am so happy we found you a place in Mississauga rather than having to go further out. It took a bully offer that we almost lost, positive interaction with the listing agent, and a long night but we did it!!!! Can't wait to see what you do with the yard. Congrats! xoxo
Evelyn is AMAZING! She was always very quick to respond, patient while dealing with my stringent requirements, and did whatever it took close the deal in my best interests. - Scott Putman
Reply: Thank you Scott! This seller's market is crazy and it doesn't make any sense but you learned quickly! The unit you bought was so much better than the other units. It will be easy to rent out once your custom build is ready for you. I really enjoyed the time we spent together and I look forward to when we can finally celebrate together with Chris and Steve! :)
WOW, what do I even say about Evelyn?! We clicked immediately, and she took her time to understand our needs in a house. (I'm a picky buyer!) Within two weeks of knowing her, we purchased the house of our dreams and we had been looking for over a year, and over 40 houses with another agent. We only saw 4 places with Evelyn, and it was SUCH a success! Thank you Evelyn! - Kimberley Marquis
Reply: Thanks so much Kimberley! It's really a tough for buyers in this current market. I felt terrible that you guys had lost so many offers before we met. I didn't want to put you through the same thing. I researched every property prior to booking the showing so we didn't look at properties that would sell out of our budget. Then we ignored the listing agent's request to wait for an offer date and submitted a pre-emptive offer. I so happy that I earned your trust. I've really enjoyed working with you!
Evelyn was amazing to work with for both selling our current home and buying our new one. She is very knowledgeable about the current market and extremely responsive to any questions or concerns we had. She treats her clients like family and is always looking out for their best interest. I would definitely recommend her and work with her again! - Stephanie C
Reply: I'm so impressed with how on-the-ball and intelligent you ladies are! The current real estate market is such a rollercoaster, yet you learned so quickly and adapted immediately. Your trust in my outside-the-box strategy saved us $71.5k on the home you purchased in a SELLER'S MARKET, when many other buyers had lost out on 6 to 10 properties and paid much more! You have such amazing taste! I'm so in love with the renovations you did on the home we sold for you and can't wait to see what you do with your new home! You are very talented and I hope to one day be your client when I'm ready for some design inspiration. Congrats again!
Evelyn is friendly and easy to work with. She always answers your calls, texts and questions. She has her clients backs and looks out for your best interests. Evelyn is very knowledgeable of whatever the current market is. I would definitely work with her again and will recommend her to anyone. - Jennifer H
Reply: We were shocked to learn the same unit as yours sold just a few days before we went on the market for $25k less than another identical unit, which had sold two weeks before. We had to instantly switch strategies as the market had changed in a matter of a week. We sold for a RECORD BREAKING price in the complex beating the other two sales by $32k and $7k (all sold within three weeks of each other). You poured your heart and soul into your home, and everyone who saw it fell in love. Your hard work and trust in me helped us to overcome two challenges that could not be changed. You have been an incredible pleasure to work with, and I'm so fortunate to have been part of your lives!
Evelyn has an exceptional work ethic and truly does value her relationships with clients and everyone she deals with in the buying/selling process. She comes prepared, is thorough, detail-oriented and trustworthy. I would recommend her time and time again! I feel blessed to have been guided through this overwhelming process with her direction, patience and care. Selling your family home is such a big decision and it sometimes comes with some big emotions, but I always felt at ease knowing she was behind the scenes and only a phone call away with any question or concern, big or small. Thank you for being YOU and for being by our side through this journey. - Michele
Reply: Sometimes in life we are lucky enough to have the opportunity to connect with incredible, special people. I've felt that about you since the day we met. I am over the moon that I was able to generate 10 offers for you and sell your home for $130,100 OVER ASKING and for a RECORD PRICE for that type of home. Looking forward to being by your side as we search for your new place!
I love working with Evelyn. This is the second home she has sold for me. Both homes selling with multiple bids and over asking. She is more then just an agent. I highly recommend. - Julie Anne
Reply: You are always a pleasure to work with! What a crazy market! We listed your home at a time when there was very little competition then within 3 days,12 similar properties went up for the same price or less. So thrilled that I was still able to generate multiple offers for you despite the competition! We sold for substantially more than expected in a changing market. I'm so pleased that you will have that extra money in your pocket for your new home. xoxo
Evelyn has exceeded my expectations in regards to the effort she put in during the sale and purchase transactions. She was attentive and her attention to detail is a big reason for her continued success. She was instrumental in a closing in just under 3 weeks with her network of highly skilled professional contacts. We appreciate Evelyn and would not hesitate to recommend her to friend and family. - Les Smith
Reply: Thanks Les! Finding you a home that you liked and closing it in 3 weeks was definitely a challenge but I'm thrilled that we found you such a great home so quickly! You and Alyssa have been such a pleasure to work with. I'm going to miss your banter on our strolls through the properties - you two are hilarious! Merry Christmas to you and your family!!!!
Evelynn is very knowledgeable in regards to what is happening in the market. Evelynn had excellent advice on how to stage the house. She was readily available to provide information through out the entire process of selling the house from the start of the sale to the final closing date. An awesome agent! - Michael McCart
Reply: Thanks Mike! We had some challenges with the buyer of your property not being reasonable with respect to the Hot Water Tank replacement, but I was happy to have your lawyer's support in fighting for your best interests and protecting you from unreasonable behaviour on the buyer's part. You and Sandra are the sweetest! I'm so happy you and your family can enjoy a stress-free Christmas! Sending lots of love to you and your family this holiday season! Thanks for your trust in me.
Evelyn was very professional throughout the process of preparing to get the house ready to sell to the closing of the house. It was a worry free process and at any time we had a question Evelyn was readily available to answer them. We definitely will be recommending Evelyn to friends and family. - Sandra Mccart
Reply: Thanks so much Sandra! You and your family went above and beyond to be thoughtful and thorough in getting your home ready for the new homeowners. Wishing you and your family a very peaceful and happy Christmas!
El was extremely professional, she had in-depth market knowledge which she used to create a successful marketing plan for our property. We had a sale within days of listing and set record sale price high for entire neighbourhood. Entire transaction was completed from list to close in 6 weeks!! Tight timeframe allowed our family to capitalize on a fast moving market and move up into our ideal neighbourhood. - Chad
Reply: It would be impossible to not fall in love with the beautiful home that you and Meera customized!!! I'm thrilled that we not only exceeded our expectations but sold for a significant record high in the neighbourhood! I can't wait to see what you guys do with your new home! You are both exceptionally talented and I'm so pleased to have been part of your lives. xo
Evelyn was such an experienced person to have by our side while navigating the housing market. Evelyn is very knowledgeable on properties and provided insight that was beneficial to important decisions. I would definitely use her services again and recommend her to others who are hoping for a supportive experience. Her positive mindset really helped us through the process of searching for properties! - Alyssa Smith
Reply: I can't stop gushing at what an accomplished and lovely person you are! It has been a pure pleasure working with you and your dad! We were definitely fighting against the odds when trying to find you a new home with less than a month before your current home closed. But good people attract good opportunities and we beat out 7 other offers, including two separate agents that reduced their commission. When I told the sellers about you and your dad they fell in love with you (just like me) and wanted you to win. I'm so happy that you will be celebrating Christmas in your new home together! xoxo
Evelyn helped sell my home for over asking and helped me get settled in my new home. I'm so happy to have her on my side! I will call her again if and when I need to switch homes again. - Jaclyn Marroquin
Reply: Thanks Jaclyn! You and your parents have a special place in my heart. You were my very first client more than 10 years ago. That you trusted me and wanted to work with me again 8 years later means so much! I love that we sold the same place we first purchased for you in only 1 day and in Multiple Bids!!! Your new place has so much character. Can't wait to see your personal touches in your new home! Sending lots of love to you, your sister and your amazing parents!
Evelyn was awesome to work with! She was very diligent and went out of her way to help me find a condo unit as my first home purchase. She was very knowledgeable in which areas were a good fit for my lifestyle and which areas were not. I've been happily living in my condo for 4 years now and have Evelyn to thank for that. I highly recommend working with Evelyn. - Kyle Siquioco
Reply: Thanks so much Kyle! I was sad to lose you guys as neighbours but I love seeing your parents adventures in the U.S. via Facebook. I love that I was able to get to know you better through our real estate adventures. Your potential is limitless and I'm so proud of the things you have accomplished. Much love to you and the family! xo
Evelyn is amazing! We were first time home buyers and she made the process super easy and fun! She is quick, approachable, super knowledgeable! Anything you need- Evelyn has an answer for with the BEST expert advice. I will always recommend Evelyn! Thank you for such a wonderful experience buying our first home! - Claudia Pokarowski
Reply: I'm so pleased you had a wonderful experience! 2020 has been a crazy year with so many homes going into multiple offers. I love that we were able to get you a beautiful home in the area you wanted and well under budget! Wishing you and your family many years of happiness in your very first home! xo
Reliable, knowledgeable and the best communicator! Evelyn is incredible at what she does! We would recommend her over and over! During stressful times she was always reassuring. Thanks for everything! - Patricia A. Chislett
Reply: Thank you Patricia! What an incredible family you have. Despite going through a life change, you all worked together to do what was best for everyone! Thank you for your patience as we had to adapt to a changing market and for accomodating so many showings! Your trust means so much to me! I'm so pleased that you chose me to be in your corner through this. xo
Evelyn has the patience of a saint and is extremely talented and skilled. We would have never found a home in Toronto without her. AND she is so lovely to work with! - Shannon
Reply: Thanks so much Shannon! We saw some pretty interesting homes together -lol. I am so happy we won that multiple bid - your house is so great! Between Pete and Lochlann you guys are surrounded by an overload of adorable-cuteness! I just love seeing photos of them. Miss you guys! John always keeps me in stitches!
Evelyn sold our home in EIGHT days in the Fall of 2017. We had encountered an unpleasant experience with another agent and we were hesitant to put our house back on the market and trust someone else. After meeting Ev, our fears were put to rest! Her warmth and professionalism put us at ease and her knowledge of the real estate market was outstanding. Evelyn was such a pleasure to work with. Her patience, warmth and guidance is something we will never forget! - Nancy Staios
Reply: I really feel like we were 'meant to be'. When you initially cancelled our 1st meeting because you chose the other agent before meeting me, I was disappointed because you sounded so great. 5 months later when the other agent still hadn't sold your home we got our second chance and a super quick sale. It all came down to educating the buyer agent and negotiation. You are the most generous soul I've ever met and a magnificent survivor! Hugs and kisses to you and the family... extra kisses for Scoobs!
Evelyn helped us purchase our home a few years ago. We would always call her back for a future sale or purchase and would highly recommend her to family and friends. She is amazing to work with, has a great personality and her success speaks for itself. - Yvonne Ulrich
Reply: Thanks so much Yvonne! I've often spoken about my adventures with you and Tim. I still can't believe the seller/listing agent of the property we first put an offer on cost themselves the sale because they refused to remediate or compensate us for the active leak behind the tiled shower wall. There was no way I was going to let you guys buy something with that kind of defect 'as is'. It worked out because the house you are in now was so much better than the one we walked away from. I saw you and Tim got married a few years ago! Congratulations to both of you!
