For the first time in 20 years, four different school boards are on rotating strikes this week in Ontario. I remember back in the 80s when it happened and have a great story to share here. As a professional negotiator, I would love to step in and solve this issue today if I could. Instead I am focusing on what I can do. And the same goes for my amazing clients and friends in education, health care, police, fire, nursing etc that require far more than 9-5 commitment. If you are a teacher on strike this week, feel free to also leave a voice message if you want me to share YOUR words on my podcast show. Hope this is helpful. Loyalty is currency ๐Ÿ’ด in my world and I hope you feel the same. PS Did you know that I am giving away 20 resort vacation accommodations certificates in 2020 to my podcast and email ๐Ÿ“ง subscribers? Each is valued at $1500. I do a draw after I help any of you buy or sell a property in Toronto/GTA. Upon completion of the sale, I do a new draw within 60 days. Thatโ€™s one of many ways I give back to those who invest & support me. --- Send in a voice message:
The biggest fear of anyone selling their home ๐Ÿ , condo ๐Ÿข or loft ๐Ÿ•‹ is โ€œwhat happens if the buyer canโ€™t closeโ€. Yes, it happens. Itโ€™s called Deal Falls Thru (DFT) and itโ€™s a disaster when it happens. Especially the more valuable the property. I have created a 5 step system that eliminates the fear in this process and have made it available to ALL of my clients. A version of this has been used by real estate millionaires in the past to insulate their property values when selling and I have made it even better. Letโ€™s connect and discuss your plans and make sure your story is told in the right way. Register with me NOW via --- Send in a voice message:
Another week in the trenches of Toronto real estate. Just heard I was mentioned in a Globe and Mail real estate article today which was a great way to end a ๐Ÿ”ฅ week. My 20 year journey to overnight success continues ๐Ÿ˜‚ I am so excited for each of you that reaches out to connect with me right now to discuss your success plan for 2020. Focused on the amazing sold stories I am working on for many of you and making sure you know how critical the timing is of selling your property. In some streets in high demand areas, there are no listings at all. Itโ€™s a gold mine for the ones who are ready to get started and will have my sign in the lawn, my grand opening & storyteller events as part of their story. In fact, Iโ€™ve had a few agents call me for some reason to tell me their plans hoping I might mention them on my podcast show. Thatโ€™s not how this works. As Iโ€™ve said before, if you are selling soon, why not skip the lines and make sure you are part of my Featured Listings. There are no do overs in real estate so you better get it right the first time. Are you sitting on red bricks ๐Ÿงฑ or gold ones ๐Ÿ’ฐ? Sometimes....itโ€™s all how and IF the real story is told. This canโ€™t be faked or done by a 3rd party. Find out at or connect with me via link in profile. --- Send in a voice message:
If Kingston, Ontario was good enough for Elon Musk, why not you? He attended Queenโ€™s in 1989 and the rest is history. And so many more notable names. As the saying goes, drive until you qualify. Thatโ€™s what so many of my smart clients have been doing in recent years and the results have been amazing. Imagine selling your $1M home in Toronto and buying a house for $300k in Kingston? That could mean you may have $500k left over that will become your own personal lottery/safety net as you live your life. Today you will meet one of the many amazing agents I have connected with over the years and youโ€™ll also hear it from him. Part of my goal to pay it forward with my fellow referral agents is to bring them up on this podcast stage with me. Hoping to connect with all the best agents across the land outside of Toronto/GTA that want to join me. As with any smart move, begin with the end in mind. Sign up for my Kingston Sold Reports and see what places are really selling for and youโ€™ll see what I mean. --- Send in a voice message:
Yes, itโ€™s already Spring on the Toronto & GTA real estate calendar. With over 300 Sold Stories plus some incredible buzz for certain listings (one with 20 and one with close to 50 offers), you can smell the electricity โšก๏ธ in the air. I think itโ€™s because itโ€™s my 20th year year long party but that may be just me ๐Ÿ˜‚. Also be sure to find out why my next listing (hopefully yours too) is going to make a lot of people very happy while lying on a beach ๐Ÿ– somewhere around the world. My biggest Vacation Contest ever is on in 2020 so be sure you are โœ๏ธ signed on with me for my email ๐Ÿ“ง alerts and podcast ๐ŸŽ™ alerts. Enjoy the show... --- Send in a voice message:
As you may know, I have decided to use this world ๐ŸŒŽ podcast stage to help the โ€œhelpersโ€ in our community. As my 200th episode and over 21,000 total plays (thank you all), this podcast is going to be one you will all remember. Recently this amazing local business on the Danforth was broken into for no apparent reason. Itโ€™s the premier co working and child care facility in our city IMO. There have been many notable visitors here since they opened and thereโ€™s even an open invite to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to have a tour if they are moving to Toronto soon. Archie will fit right in and you guys will love this neighbourhood. So many Victorian streets here and even one named King Edward. Back to this episode....this podcast isnโ€™t about feeling bad for this amazing company. This is a celebration of not letting anything keep you down. This is exactly the killer spirit that makes this the perfect anchor for our community of Danforth East. As a local here for over 20 years, I have been working hard to help promote those in our community who are giving everything they have into the growth of their business. These efforts directly benefit those who live and work in the area both in real estate values and also by attracting the best people into our community. This is the blueprint of how a neighbourhood survives and thrives. Enjoy this story and do what you can to help support this business and others who need people power and positive vibes.

The year is 2020. Seeing as storytelling has been part of our DNA ๐Ÿงฌ for over 10,000 years, you would think that those handling your most valuable real estate would understand its value. Thatโ€™s why I am here. To prove my point on how important this is, I wonโ€™t sign any new listing until we have discussed your story and the story behind your property. No paperwork, no pressure, no selling of any kind. I will even bring the coffee โ˜•๏ธ to help fuel the discussion. Letโ€™s connect soon. --- Send in a voice message:
Congrats to all of the amazing sold stories of 2019 and those Iโ€™m working on in 2020 and beyond. Sharing these stories with you on my podcast is the best part of my day. The top 5๏ธโƒฃ areas for sold prices are....#Bridlepath, #Rosedale, #LawrencePark, #ForestHill and #Annex areas. I go through all the specifics in this episode and discuss the importance of making sure your SOLD story is being told by the right person. The smart ones know that is where you must be featured to ensure the right story is told. So you know Iโ€™m being ๐Ÿ’ฏ% upfront, I donโ€™t talk about buying or selling at our first meeting. Just a coffee โ˜•๏ธ or a beer ๐Ÿบ is fine. I just want to hear your story. Fair enough? If you decide you want to ask me about the next steps, great. It wonโ€™t be me who makes that call. PS For a sneak peek at a few of the sold stories in these areas in 2019, sign up ๐Ÿ–Š here --- Send in a voice message:

The year was 1840. The place was Leslieville. This is the setting for my 1st grand opening and storyteller tours of 2020. My featured property is a stunning loft for lease that sets the stage for the event. I promise that this will be unlike any of the usual real estate ๐Ÿก events you have attended. During this event on Sat, Jan 11 from 2-5pm, you will join me for a look back at the history of Leslieville, itโ€™s people, itโ€™s properties and the untold stories you wonโ€™t hear anywhere else. No selling happens at these events. Just a place to connect in person and share some great stories. For more details on this EXCLUSIVE (not on MLS) listing visit --- Send in a voice message:
After 20 years in โ€œthe bizโ€ I donโ€™t just want success for me anymore. I truly want others to succeed and not worry either. Itโ€™s not something I can teach you here. Certain things are still IRL (in real life) only. This is one of them. This will explain a bit about how this works. If this relates to you in any way, letโ€™s connect and make it happen for you in your life. Some of your stories are 1000x better than mine but they arenโ€™t doing any good sitting in a shoebox collecting dust. Letโ€™s make the 2020 decade your best one ever!!

Do I have your attention? I hope so. If none of these mean anything to you, perhaps you arenโ€™t breathing. If they do mean something to you, join the club.

Once upon a time. 4 simple words that have so much power yet they are so overlooked in the world of real estate. Every home, loft, condo or mansion tells a story. Some have many. Each community has its share of stories also. You are leaving so much ๐Ÿ’ฐ on the table when you donโ€™t hire the right storyteller for your Toronto & GTA properties. This is something I was born to do and there simply isnโ€™t a better storyteller in real estate. My podcasts speak for themselves and my passion is what makes my Grand Opening Events & Storytelling Sessions the most unique way to tell the world about your amazing properties. Stay tuned for my first one of the decade coming up in #Leslieville next week. It will be epic!!

Youโ€™ve heard the 30 second sound clips of various predictions on the news. Now itโ€™s time for the unfiltered version of the Toronto and GTA real estate ๐Ÿก news. No ads being sold here so I donโ€™t have any time issues or people to please. Letโ€™s talk buying and selling trends to beware of and much more. And I go into lots of detail here. Always hope you get the most value possible from each episode. Back when one of the big news stations interviewed me they took my 3 min comment and edited it to 10 seconds. No more media interviews for me after that. I became the media. Thatโ€™s what this is. No bullshit and no commercials for laxatives after the show ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Enjoy the show and be sure to use link above for links to the programs mentioned or visit and sign up now. --- Send in a voice message:
Having helped many people recently in this age range, Iโ€™ve made some important findings I want to share. Being in my 40s, many of my clients are now in their 50-70s and deciding what to do next. For many homeowners in Toronto and GTA, the last 20 years has been a period of amazing growth. The portfolios I have done reports on recently have even amazed the owners themselves. Enjoy the show and letโ€™s connect if itโ€™s time to make a move. Get started at --- Send in a voice message:
โ€œWhat a long strange trip itโ€™s beenโ€-The Grateful Dead ๐Ÿ’€. Gratitude ๐Ÿ™ says it all. Grateful for my amazing wife, my wonderful kids, supportive family, all the friends Iโ€™ve made and the kindness of strangers. I canโ€™t think of a better way to describe the last 20 years. So many amazing relationships created along the way. As I look back at the many moves Iโ€™ve handled, itโ€™s the people involved with those moves I remember the most. In fact, many of those who started with me in those early days are not only still around but have even become real estate millionaires ๐Ÿ’ฐ and multi millionaires in the process. As Iโ€™ve learned via doing this podcast, itโ€™s the stories behind the SOLDS that matter the most. Driving past a sold sign or getting a postcard by mail on your street rarely tells you the story behind the process. There is so much missing from the usual boring approach. Changing that is what I do here. Along with sharing the most amazing stories about people Iโ€™ve met, their small businesses and their causes and more. As always, you can join the storytelling sessions anytime you are ready. For the ๐Ÿ”ฅ info and more go to --- Send in a voice message:
