"Maria exceeded our expectations in a multitude of ways, not least by making herself available at all hours of the day to assist my wife and I in finding the right house. We were provided with detailed market research and were guided every step of the way from multiple viewing appointments through to the final offer and inspection. At every step of the home buying process Maria displayed a level of professionalism that truly made our home buying experience a pleasant one."
There are many things to take into consideration when choosing a real estate agent. The first things that come to mind are experience, knowledge and professionalism. Maria possessed each of these qualities, but what set her apart was her personable attributes. Immediately I felt a great rapport between us. She was willing to go the extra mile to assure that I made the right choice. Maria was very patient and compliant to my price range and location requirements. I could count on her for good, solid advice concerning my new home purchase. I am confident that with her help I have made the right purchase decision. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in the market for a new home.
Thank you for making the purchase of my first home a great experience.
I understand that home buying can be a stressful time and I want to thank you for walking me through it all and for being so patient and sensitive to all of my questions and concerns. Your knowledge and expertise is evident and definitely a true reflection of the fantastic agent that you are.
Besides your exceptional hard work and efforts, your patience is what I am most grateful for. You took the time to understand my situation and you never once made me feel pressured. I've worked in the real estate industry for many years in an administrative capacity so I know how each agent has their own style. I have to say, by far, you are one of the most professional and caring agents I've had the pleasure to work with and know.
I love my house and I owe that all to you!
Thank you Maria!
Maria made purchasing my first condo an enjoyable and rewarding experience. She was there to help me through every step of the process and always was available to thoroughly answer any questions or concerns
I just wanted to say thank you again for all your help. Deciding to list the house was a difficult decision and you understood that and put up with us throughout, from when to list it, how to decorate it and of course how to price it.
Your input and ideas was appreciated and not forced upon us which made this experience less stressful and more enjoyable.
As a person you are dedicated and understanding and that is reflected through your work. You never made us feel pressure to sell or comprimise our expectations in order to make the sell.
We just wanted to let everyone know that you are a pleasure to work with and we look forward to buying and selling with you again.
We just want to say thanks again for all your hard efforts and attention and let you know that they were appreciated and will not be forgotten.
My goodness, we can’t believe you did it. Time was of the essence to sell our property as the house we were moving in to had no conditions….AND YOU DID IT!
Maria, you were a real pleasure to work with and a true professional in every sense of the word. You didn’t laugh at our initial asking price (even though you know it was high) and you kept us on the right track throughout the entire sales process.
By following up with every agent who brought their clients to see our house, we were able to work with their feedback and to make necessary changes where possible to negative comments, and this resulted in you selling our house sooner than later.
Again, thank you very much for your services and for making our lives a little less crazy during that very busy time.
Gaby, Mike and family.
"Working with Maria buying my first house was great, she explained everything and was very patient with my questions and concerns. She was also very knowledgable about the various neighbourhoods we were looking into, and we never felt rushed or pressured. When we found the house for us, Maria closed the deal quickly and we had it. She also helped us with contacts for the inspector and lawyer, both of whom we were very happy with. I would definitely use her again or recommend her services to others."
We listed our house with Maria Vlahos in spring 2005. Maria marketed our house in the local newspaper as well as in the Toronto paper. She was eager to help us in any way possible, by giving tips on what to do to make our house more marketable, by holding open houses and by meeting with us at our convenience.
Our house was priced effectively and sold within a couple of weeks.
Thanks Maria for making the sale of our home and enjoyable experience!

Deciding to list our home in Toronto and find a new, bigger & better one was a stressful and difficult one to make. Maria made it as easy and stress-free as possible for us both.
She helped us sell our house by actively marketing it - from newspaper ads to open houses. Advising her of our needs was a great step - she negotiated and got us what we wanted.
The time came to find a new house. After discussing our needs with her, we were able to come up with a list of must-haves and nice-to-haves. Maria always made herself available to look at houses with us, which was a lot. We never felt pressure to settle for something that was close, but not quite close enough.
We've lived in our new-to-us home for 3 months and absolutely love it. Maria worked hard until we found "the One". We did not compromise and are thankful for it.
Thank you for your dedication, determination and expertise!
Much appreciated and highly recommended,
Sarah and Luke
As you can imagine, buying a condominium on your own can be a very stressful endeavour. I found myself in this situation just a few months ago. I had very little time to spend looking for my new place of residence and had very few resources to turn to for assistance.
An acquaintance of mine referred Maria Vlahos to me. Maria alleviated much of the worry and anxiety by providing me with several real estate locations and actually took the time to show me each and every one.
After deciding on the property that was right for me, Maria's impressive negotiating skills and determination took over and we closed the deal at a price that if I decided to sell shortly after closing, I could have easily turned a decent profit.
Thank you Maria for all of your hard work and countless hours. It was great getting to know you and if I decide to ever sell, you will definitely be my listing agent.
Craig and I had the pleasure of working with Ms. Maria Vlahos as our Real Estate Agent this past Spring and were very impressed by her talents and dedication. Maria is very dedicated to her clients, organized, very well mannered with superior customer service skills. We were also very impressed with her dealings with other agents when it came time to the selling/purchasing of our homes.
As a Real Estate Agent, Maria is very well versed as to what is happening in the current markets and supplied us with all the information we needed to make a decision on our listing price. She was diligent about sending us new listings that she thought we would be interested in and was very in tune with what our needs where she never wasted our time. Maria was also very assertive in contacting agents that walked through our home to get feedback so that we could work on ways of improving our home with regards to “showings” which, in the end, helped us sell.
All in all, our experience with Maria was wonderful and we would highly recommend her services. If you have any questions regarding Maria do not hesitate to contact us.
