Client Testimonials

By: MICHAEL M. NOVAC, P.Eng. President and CEO Sonco Group Inc.

On behalf of my wife Nelly and I, it is my please to write to you to commend you on the manner with which you had arranged your undertaking to find us a suitable condominium residence in Toronto. You have, in this difficult process, educated us about the condominium market, pricing structure, quality and amenities available, location, and finally you have patiently arranged for and showed us some 20 different condo units. It helped educate us about the Toronto market and better determine our "real" requirements and the realistic pricing structure in the marketplace. You were hard at work initiating leads for unlisted condo units and used your relationships to provide us with inside knowledge about the listed units. Having lived in two single family houses for over 48 years and not being familiar with the condo market in Toronto, this was a most useful exercise. You also guided us through the process of making purchase and sale offers in quick time and through the process of closing the purchase. Your significant experience, your enthusiasm and personality were paramount in making this difficult process a happy experience, and it goes without saying that we are extremely happy with the condo purchased. We wish therefore to take this opportunity to thank you, and you may use this letter for reference purpose. With my best wishes, Michael

Note From the President of Sotheby's International Realty Canada Nadine, I just want to take a moment to thank you for the enormous work you have done to create, establish and grow the Sotheby’s International Realty Canada Condo Connoisseurs Group. Your idea has blossomed into a very significant program that we will eventually spread across Canada and likely be shared with our colleagues internationally as a best practice. I believe that this accomplishment has benefited significantly from your extensive experience representing clients in purchasing and selling luxury condominiums in Toronto and Manhattan. With you as the Chairperson, I look forward to seeing the Condo Connoisseurs Group, continue to grow, flourish and thrive. Kind regards, Brad J. Henderson President & CEO | Président-Directeur Général

“I was considering selling my luxury 3 bedroom condo at 1 St. Thomas Street when I received a letter from Nadine Robbins of Sotheby’s International Realty Canada saying that she had a qualified buyer for my suite. I was reluctant to show it as it was not nearly “photo-ready”. Nadine was gently persistent, and I finally agreed. After just 3 showings, and exceptional service, she successfully negotiated a deal that met my admittedly high expectations with a minimum of inconvenience. I believe you would be very comfortable exclusively listing your property with Nadine.” BDR 1 St. Thomas

Nadine made every effort to accommodate my circumstances and to make the sale of my condo a painless process. She made smart decisions for me, and her negotiating skills resulted in me selling my condo over asking--- way over my hopes! I should also mention she is easy-going and has a great sense of humor! Give her a call, you will be pleasantly surprised.

We recently relocated from the US to Toronto and had an extremely limited time in which to locate the perfect home. Luckily, my sister referred us to Nadine Robbins in your office. Nadine is fantastic! She listened to our needs, found numerous homes on the MLS for us to tour and helped point out the pros and cons of each one. Her knowledge of the area combined with her positive and inquisitive attitude helped to find a gorgeous rental home that was unlisted. She then helped negotiate an affordable price and terms. We highly recommend Nadine to anyone looking for a home to rent or buy in Toronto. Feel free to contact us with any questions.

Nadine Robbins has represented us on several real estate transactions. She is a skilled and professional agent. Our most recent condo sale went for 8% over asking! Highly recommended!

From the moment we met Nadine we knew that we were in the right hands. She is detailed, knowledgeable and eager to help. We really appreciated her hard-work, patience, kindness and expert advice and are particularly thankful for her honesty and integrity. We would definitely recommend Nadine to any of our family and friends.

The Perfect Choice! My wife and I could not have picked a more knowledgeable agent with a better personality fit for our condo search. Nadine worked tirelessly to find us the perfect unit at the right price in a very tight market. Nadine was fantastic and we will be recommending her to all our friends.

By: JASON WONG

Nadine, I just wanted to thank you for the excellent service and really appreciate the kindness and attention extended by you. When I really knew nothing about buying a condo, Nadine treated me like a serious buyer and I think that had a great impact on my eventual purchase

By: SAMANTHA TRUSTER

Nadine is a superb real estate agent who exceeded our expectations. Thanks to her, we found a home we love for a great price, and sold our condo in a timely manner, also for a great price. With a newborn at home, we especially appreciated her emphasis on hands-on customer service. We always felt comfortable knowing she had our best interests at heart. You can’t go wrong with Nadine!

When I finally decided to start looking for a loft in downtown Toronto, I noticed Nadine’s ad and decided to reach out to her. From the moment we spoke on the phone, I was instantly impressed with her professionalism, attentiveness and understanding of my needs. Having not lived in Toronto for 10yrs, I wasn’t familiar with what the different neighborhoods had to offer. Nadine was extremely patient and based on her extensive knowledge of the condo market, she showed me a lot of places I would not have considered. As a result of Nadine’s tireless efforts, we finally found the perfect place for me, within my budget, and in a fantastic neighborhood. I am extremely proud of my new place. I would highly recommend Nadine to anyone who is searching for their dream home as she is a talented professional.

Working with Nadine throughout this process has been not only a pleasure, but a revelation. Selling your home and looking for another can be arduous. Working with Nadine relieved all the stress and inconveniences usually experienced when selling a home. Listing exclusively with Nadine meant she personally pre-qualified prospective buyers, and limited visits to serious buyers only. From our first meeting, Nadine was always readily available; she provided concierge-like service and made us feel like we were her only clients. The next time I find myself in a position to sell a property, I will do so with an exclusive listing and I'd only trust Nadine to handle it.

Nadine Robbins is the hardest working real estate agent I have ever worked with in almost 30 years. She cares about you as a person, and is authentically focused on ensuring your satisfaction. Nadine was my agent on both the buy and sell side, and she is exceptional at both!

I am most pleased to provide this reference latter regarding the relocation services provided to one of our Executives by Nadine Robbins. She assisted our Executive in planning, coordinating and arranging his somewhat complex move from Dublin, Ireland including the sale of his home in Edinburgh, Scotland. Once he arrived in Toronto the personalized service that she provided to our Executive and his spouse was attentive and tailored to their specific needs. Their search for a new home presented Nadine with numerous challenges, all of which she met head on. She recognized with sensitivity the cultural issues that the couple were facing and managed the situation accordingly. I have no hesitation in recommending Nadine and would be most pleased to speak directly with anyone seeking a more detailed reference. Yours truly, Sheilagh MacDonald Senior Vice President, Human Resources AEGON Canada Inc.

When I decided to purchase my first condo, I didn't know how to begin or where to start. Nadine made the experience easy and stress-free. I'm now a confident buyer and Nadine is helping me find a second condo as an investment.

By: BEVERLY SNODGRASS

Please be advised that I engaged the real estate services of Nadine Robbins to carry out the sale of my property and sell me another property in October 2010. During both the selling and the purchase process I found Nadine to be very knowledgeable and professional as well as personable. I would have no hesitation in engaging her services in the future and I most certainly would highly recommend her to others!

By: SHAYA MADHI

Nadine is a professional and caring real estate agent. She very soon figured out what we were looking for and instead of trying to change our minds to accept what was immediately available, she concentrated on finding what we needed through an efficient manner and she was successful! She is organised, responsible and resourceful and it was a pleasure for me to work with her.

Nadine made our buying and selling experience a wonder one. She took the time to understand our needs of both buying and selling and met all our goals very quickly. I recommend Nadine Highly for anyone wanting an agent that cares and is always thinking you you before her.

By: John

I had a wonderful experience with Nadine. She was kind, positive and very knowledgeable about the downtown market and helped me find the perfect luxury condo that was suited to my needs and budget. I was a first-time buyer and had no idea what I was doing but Nadine answered every question I had and helped ease my anxiety. In addition, she helped to negotiate a price that I was comfortable with. She is extremely dedicated and will work with you tirelessly until you find a property you're completely happy with. I would use her again for buying or selling and I will continue to recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell in the city. She is a skillful real estate agent and a pleasure to work with.
