My Specialty is YOU - because I care!

My caption above sums it all about my business philosophy, which is also why I've named my Brokerage IM Realty Service - a double entendre: it stands for my initials as well as the fact that "I AM Realty Service".
I've been in the Real Estate business since July of 2001, and after 13½ years of working for big Franchises, I decided, as of June 06, 2014, to take my business to the next level by starting my own Brokerage. As they say, "what's in a name"? This is so true because in all my years with the big franchises, nobody ever came to me because of the Brokerage I was with. They all came to me because they were referred to me by my past clientele. This long time dream of owning my own Brokerage has finally come to fruition. My service commitment to my clientele remains the same.  It's only the company name that has changed. And it's been 7 great years, this year, since I've managed my own Brokerage.

In my years as a Realtor®, I've never really had to advertise. I've grown my business through word of mouth advertising as I firmly believe that people's experiences are the best form of advertising and so, instead of paying heavy Franchise fees, my investment is in myself and those that support me - and this is a win-win situation for all. Over the 20 years that I've been in this business, I have had the honour of earning peoples' trust to help with the purchase/sale of their homes East to West, in Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville, Toronto/Scarborough, Ajax, Pickering, Richmond Hill, Brantford and Keswick, North-East of the GTA.  All this has given me a lot of valuable exposure to markets around the GTA.

For anyone thinking of selling a property and would like to find out as to what it would cost them by way of commissions payable, the fees would depend on what services one would want included.and could range anywhere between 3.5-5%, in total, + HST.

I've also built up a Network of professionals that I confidently work with to enhance the experience that my clients have, working with me. These professionals include Mortgage Specialists, Financial Advisors, Insurance Agents, Lawyers, Home Inspectors and various tradespeople for the different jobs, and home renovations, around the house.

If you require any assistance in any other area beyond my boundaries, be it in another area of Ontario, even the rest of Canada / U.S. or even Goa, or Bombay, in India  I could, possibly, help you with referrals through my network of Agents.  For those of you holding OCI status or still holding Indian citizenship, if you need to buy, or sell, properties in Goa, please feel free to contact me for connections with Real Estate Brokers and developers in Goa. 

I love working in Real Estate and can only progress with your help and support. No matter how busy I may be, I will always make time for your referrals! I look forward to working with you, and your friends/family, and if there's anything I can do for any of you, please do not hesitate to call me anytime.  As you will see from my Testimonials, I never try to push any clients into a deal.  Being the biggest investment one makes, I let clients take their time and guide them as best as I honestly can.

I am also now proud to announce that my daughter, Kimberley Santarelli, has also joined me in the business, so we are now twice as strong!

I do hope that I will have the pleasure of working with you and remember, my Real Estate relationship does not end on closing, when you take possession of your home, that's really just the beginning..

Warm Regards,
Ivor Mendes
