We found Karen through Facebook, but a friend of ours had also used her services last year so knowing this helped us make our decision to go with her as our realtor. She was absolutely fantastic in helping us find our new condo. She was able to give us guidance regarding many different things we would not have previously considered, like finding a unit with parking allowing us to increase our budget for example, or monitoring price changes to find more units within our price range. Using her services meant we had everything we needed for our application ready upfront and the process for applying was really easy, so once we found somewhere we loved all we had to do was give Karen the go ahead to submit. She was super helpful in letting us know which buildings are typically 'better' in the areas we are looking for too which helped us make smarter decisions. If we didn't have Karen's help, we would have settled for a lot less than what we ended up with. We are moving into our new unit in Nov and are so excited to call it our new home away from home! ****Rachel and KeithKaren was super helpful
We stumbled upon Karen while looking online for condos, and I'm so glad we did. We immediately took a liking to her. Karen was great through the process of finding us a new home. She was patient, even when we were picky, and addressed all our numerous questions. She followed up with the landlord for pending documents even after we had rented the new place. I admire her tenacity to see things through and her advice through the process; we're happy to have found her and our beautiful new home. Candice and Joywyn
Found a beautiful home
I was living in Australia and moving to Toronto under a deadline. I was unable to to be in Toronto for most of the process, but it was manageable because Karen was there every step of the way. She found me a great apartment, and made the process as straightforward and efficient as it could be. Thank you so much once again! John StaplesKaren was fantastic to work with!
Hands down Karen is an absolutely great realtor. Given the pandemic and in consideration with how the real estate market is, she worked magic!! She was thoughtful, organized, reliable, informative, patient and honest from the beginning till the end. She helped me to put my worries at ease and made the whole process so much easier and smooth.
We used Karen as we could not find suitable accommodation in Downtown Toronto. Having already lived here for 1 year we knew how hard the market was and how difficult it would be to find a new place. Karen had a variety of properties that suited our budget and location and we were able to view several the one weekend. We liked how fast the whole process was and within 2 days of viewing the apartment we were told it was ours!
Karen clearly outlined what documents we needed to prepare. I would definitely recommend using Karen as she made the whole process a lot easier and had access to a range of properties which you cannot view without a realtor. We love our new place downtown and if we ever decide to move will definitely be using Karen’s services.- Michelle and Niall.We love out new Condo!
Karen was great from start to finish in helping us find our ideal house. Karen's expertise and professionalism made the whole process from gathering documents, organising viewings, to putting in the final offer and closing on our house stress free. Being 3 young guys from Ireland we thought it would be a struggle to convince landlords to give us a chance but Karen knew exactly what we needed to do in order to get us into our home once we knew we wanted it. We would highly recommend Karen to anyone looking for a place in Toronto. - Cillian, Padraic & JasonWe would highly recommend Karen
It was a pleasure working with Karen during our search to find an apartment. Karen was extremely approachable, friendly, and accomodating. She kept us informed and updated throughout the process, and due to her efficiency and profesionalism, we were able to secure a lease on an incredible apartment that exceeded our expectations. I would recommend Karen as a realtor to anyone looking to move properties. Definitely the best realtor we have ever worked with before, and we just want to take one final chance to express our sincerest appreciation for her hard work, efforts, and help. All the best Karen, and thank you.-Michael and OrlaThis apartment exceeded our expectations
Karen is great! I gave her a very detailed description of what I was looking for and was receiving matches within hours of our conversation. She found me a great space in a timely fashion, on budget, she was very attentive and thorough in all details of the contract.- Peter St. LaurentThanks Karen
Karen was a dream to work with. She is exceptional at her job and goes above and beyond for her clients. Karen helped us find our dream condo within just a few days after arriving in Toronto. She is highly organized, committed and easy to communicate with. She even checked in with us while she was on vacation! We can't thank Karen enough for her hard work and expertise. We would highly recommend Karen to anyone who is looking for a new place in the GTA. Thanks again!We highly recommend Kare
Karen was brilliant from start to finish. I had heard so many horror stories of how hard it is to find a place out here in Toronto and she relaxed me so much and made me feel confident that together we could find my perfect place. AND WE DID! Not only did I find a place, I found a place with all the amenities that I was after, in the location I wanted and within my budget! WITHIN A WEEK! Also Karen's fun and lovely personality meant that going around the viewings was actually very enjoyable and not a chore. She is focused and reliable and very hard-working and I'm very grateful that I used her as my real estate agent. I highly recommend her and already have done to anyone I have met who is new to the city!I highly recommend Karen
Karen was a dream to find when we moved to Toronto and the only person I would recommend when searching for your new home in Toronto.
When relocating there are so many things happening at once but Karen held our hands throughout the entire process making it a stress free and seamless process. She met with us after hours and had our best of intentions at heart. She did not deviate from our expectations once and always so thoughtful and thorough. We met her on a Friday and the following Tuesday our offer was accepted!
Being Irish we did not have Credit history reports but with Karens professional experience and advice we were able to assure the landlord and estate agent that we were reliable tentants for consideration and within a few hours of our first viewings we had our new home in Toronto secured.
We cannot thank you enough for everything!
Avril & Jonathan
Karen is an amazing realtor!! Myself and my boyfriend were finding it very hard to figure out were to even begin when we moved to Toronto at first!! We reached out to Karen and she made finding us our perfect home super easy! We explained to karen exactly what we wanted and exactly where!! And she done just that for us!!! She done all the hard work for us. Karen told us exactly what we needed and this made it so much easier as we didnt realise at the time how hard it was. Karen was so nice and has great patience as we were so fussy!! She was determined to find us the perfect home, and that she did. I would 110% reccomend karen to anyone who needs help finding a place!! -Rebecca and DarraghKaren is an amazing realtor!!
I just wanted to publicly thank and recommend the amazing Karen Mcdermott who helped myself and my boyfriend find our dream condo in our ideal location here in Toronto.
We contacted Karen by email a couple of months before arriving and within hours Karen replied with lots of useful information including a list of documents for us to prepare in advance to make the process as easy as possible. Karen also signed us up for automated emails with listings in our desired area/price range so we knew what to expect coming over. She even sent us extremely helpful blog-posts about moving to Toronto before we left Ireland and made us feel like we were in safe hands straight away.
We met with Karen a day after we arrived and immediately felt at-ease. Karen was friendly, warm, welcoming but most-importantly honest, to the point, and efficient with the short period of time that we had to find a place to live (two weeks!).
Within days Karen brought us to viewings in gorgeous, well-located buildings with great amenities, all within our price range. We were delighted that the second offer we put in was accepted and within 48 hours had the keys to our new place.
Since then, Karen has kept in touch to make sure we are settling well which we really appreciate. It’s always going to be hard settling in to a new country and especially when renting is as competitive as it is here in Toronto, but I can assure you that working with Karen made our move over here a breeze. We couldn’t be more thankful to Karen and would recommend her to anyone.
Thanks again Karen!]
Karen is a fantastic realtor and one that we were lucky to find so soon after our arrival in the city. She explained everything we needed to know about the process of searching for an apartment, i.e. narrowing down our search location, documentation we would need and the legalities of the rental market here.
We are very happy with our condo, it was everything that we were looking for. Karen listened carefully to our wants and needs and helped us to find the perfect place for us, all well within our budget too! I would have no hesitation recommending Karen to anyone I knew who was coming to Toronto. She made the whole process much less stressful. Thank you again Karen! xx Darragh and Fiona
Love our new condo
We moved to Toronto at the end of November and had no prior knowledge of the rental market and how competitive it was. Karen was a godsend she helped us prep documents, continuously sent us new rentals in the market and when we had narrowed our search organized a quick and efficient viewing of these. We had no credit score and had jobs in the pipeline but nothing secured and Karen could not have been more reassuring and helpful that we would find the right place to set up home in Toronto. We put an offer in and picked up the keys the next day - Karen still keeps in touch weeks later and we really can't thank her enough for all the hard work and dedication she showed finding us our first home in Toronto! Thank you Karen - Jeannie and StephenThanks Karen for your dedication and hard work.
Karen’s professionalism and personal investment in helping us find the right apartment made the whole process so much less stressful. She worked tirelessly around the clock, always on top of the latest postings, and stayed dedicated to our search through all of the ups and downs that came up in Toronto’s crazy real estate market. You would be hard-pressed to find another realtor willing to commit as much time and energy into helping you find your new home as Karen. -Negin HematiEverything you would want in a Realtor
I'd fully recommend Karen to help you find a new home, she provides all the help and information you need and adapts to your situation in terms of budget, location, credit rating, etc. The rental market is crazy and places were getting snapped up fast but Karen was in continual contact with me and provided regular updated lists of available properties until we got one that was a good fit. Neal McCannPerfect apartment for one
Karen is an exceptional realtor. Myself and my boyfriend moved to Toronto from Ireland and within a week of working with Karen she found us the perfect apartment in Downtown Toronto. She explained the entire process to us and made aspects of the process, such as the paperwork, as easy as possible. Karen only showed us properties that suited our exact wants/needs and budget. Karen is a delight to work with; extremely dedicated and hard working. I would highly recommend - Grace and Niallexceptional realtor
We found Karen on line and from the first message she was very friendly and helpful. Karen was professional and extremely dedicated whilst looking for accommodation for myself and my two friends. She organised viewings and her attention to detail was extremely helpful while going through the whole application process, she managed to find us an apartment within a week. We couldn't recommend Karen enough as she took all the stress off finding us the perfect house! Thanks so much Karen, Zara, Sinead and AoifeStress Free House Shopping
I was recommended Karen by a friend of mine and could not be happier with the way she facilitated the process of me finding a rental condo in Toronto. Not only did I find a lovely place within 2 viewing days, she helped me navigate all the red tape and paperwork I needed to go through in order for me to move in on time.I will definitely recommend Karen to anyone looking for a place to stay in Toronto.
Karen is an excellent realtor. I worked with Karen to secure my new home over the summer and would have to say that the service provided was excellent. Karen regularly made herself available at times that fitted into my busy schedule. It only took two weeks to secure the apartment, but Karen constantly stayed in touch over this time to ensure that I was always aware of properties that had become available. I would strongly recommend Karen as a realtor. She is hard-working, dedicated and professional. Karen sent a personalised card to the new apartment, a very nice touch!- Darragh Goldenexcellent realtor
Karen was speedy with her responses and gave us fantastic advice and information so we were as best prepared as we could be when we arrived. When it came to looking for apartments Karen listened to what we wanted and brought us to view some amazing apartments that matched our criteria. Karen was always open to answering our questions and we owe finding our amazing apartment to her. When it came to signing the lease she was always ready to answer any queries we had no matter how big or small, day or night. We are absolutely loving our new home and genuinely don't think we could've found a home like this without Karen. When you move across the world finding accommodation can be extremely tough and there can be a lot of worry surrounding documents and the possibility of getting scammed but with Karen as our realtor we never had a worry and she was excellent from start to finish.excellent from start to finish
Karen was a pleasure to work with. She helped us find our 3 bed house within 2 weeks of moving to Toronto. She is efficient, thorough and very responsive. She made the rental process a short simple exercise for which we are very grateful because moving continents with a baby is not easy. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone looking to rent a family home.Edel Mullins
Me and my partner Paul came across Karen on Facebook and we are so happy that we did! She helped us to find a condo to live in a lot faster than we ever could ourselves. She took the stress out of the whole experience and really helped us with the process. We would highly recommend Karen to anyone that is thinking about making a move. ***Rachel and Paul
We would highly recommend Karen
Karen was amazing in helping us find our first apartment in Toronto. From our first meeting she was friendly and extremely helpful in providing all the advice to give us the best chance of being accepted in a challenging rental market. She even showed amazing flexibility by giving up her evenings to take us on viewings since I was working full time. Karen did all the hard work for us including all the required paperwork to make everything as smooth as possible, and without her help it wouldn't have been possible. We would highly recommend her to anyone, especially Irish people who are new to Toronto! Niall and Courtneyhighly recommend Karen
I was recommended to Karen from a friend who was pleased with how helpful Karen was. From the outset, Karen was helpful, professional and made the entire apartment-searching task easier! She only showed us places that suited what we were looking for and in the end, we found the perfect condo. Would definitely recommend. SarahLove our condo, thanks Karen
We worked with Karen to find our first home in Toronto after moving from the UK. Karen is knowledgeable, helpful and has continued to support us even after we moved into our apartment. I'm certain we wouldn't have found such a great place to live without her help and would happily recommend her to anyone who is looking to move. Karen worked hard to ensure she understood exactly what we were looking for and got to know the areas we were looking in so she could find us a home that we love. Our biggest concern was finding an apartment that we could easily commute from without compromising on space. Thanks to Karen, we found the perfect place in a great location! When it came to making an offer, Karen was fantastic. She was able to advise us as to what documents we would need, as newcomers to Canada, to help ensure our offer was strong and successful. Throughout the process we found her to be professional, extremely knowledgeable and completely reliable. We wouldn't hesitate to work with Karen again in the future. -Catherine and ThomasFirst home in Toronto
Karen is an amazing, very dedicated realtor that was key to my girlfriend and I finding our ideal condo. Being new to Toronto we had no idea where to start looking and needed to find somewhere fast. We only really knew one location in the city and thought this would have been the ideal location. After 2 days Karen showed us a new location and it was everything we wanted and more. Karen was able to find us a condo apartment in 4 days which is amazing in this very competitive market. Karen's knowledge of the city was key to us finding our ideal location and condo and we would have never found it without her. When it came to putting in the offer for apartments Karen was very dedicated to helping us get the apartments we were interested in and worked throughout the night to prepare documents. I would without a thought recommend Karen to anyone looking for a home in Toronto as her knowledge and dedication to her work is truly unmatched.- Pierce and KatePerfect condo in a perfect location!
I was recommended to Karen from a friend after moving to Toronto. She was very helpful, professional, and she guided me in getting all the necessary documents ready, which made everything easier and less stressful for me! I love my new apartment and Karen played a big part in helping me get it. She exceeded my expectations on all levels! -Taniaexceeded my expectations
Having just moved over from Ireland, Karen helped us with every step of finding our new home in Toronto. She was knowledgeable about how to navigate the tricky process of getting an apartment without a Canadian credit history and found us a great condo in a super location. We were very happy with how professional and helpful Karen was throughout the whole process. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new home in Toronto. ***Meghan and Niallhighly recommend Karen
We couldn't recommend Karen more! We arrived completely new to Toronto and the rental market in Canada. We reached out to Karen, as we came across her on a facebook page and she was great from the start. Karen explained the whole process and ensured we had all our funds and documents ready to make an offer when the right place came up. We viewed our apartment on a Thursday and got the keys on the following Monday! We are loving life in our brand new condo and have already recommended Karen to one of our close friends coming out here next month. Thanks so much for all your help Karen! - Dhani and KerryWE love our apartment
Karen is an excellent realtor with a friendly, personalised and professional attitude. We contacted Karen a few days prior to arriving in Toronto because of the many recommendations we came across online. We met with Karen on day one and by the fourth day and the fourth viewing, we had our own condo which we absolutely love. Karen told us what we needed and did all the documentation from that point on. We had her guidance and help throughout the entire process and we honestly recommend her 100 percent. We were worried about finding a place when we arrived but the whole process went extremely smoothly with Karen. - Carrie and RogerSmooth from beginning to end
Karen was exceptional to work with. She made the process very smooth, was clear on all the documentation that was required & was very flexible & accommodating to get us sorted asap. We clearly laid out budgets & expectations & she produced results immediately, finding us a beautiful apartment to get settled into. It's definitely hard as a newcomer to Canada with no Canadian references or little paperwork so Karen really made what could have been a nightmare a simple, straight-forward process. Couldn't recommend her enough! Michelle and RobertKaren was exceptional to work with
Our family were emigrating from Ireland to Toronto in the middle of a pandemic and Karen helped us find a place in on the first day! She could not have been more helpful and made the move as stress free as possible. As we had to quarantine for 14 days she did everything from taking furniture orders before we arrived to being there when the first grocery order was being delivered! I cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking for somewhere to live in Toronto, especially if you are emigrating! Thanks Karen.
****Stephen, Niamh and familymoving during Covid
I moved with my whole family from Italy and Karen supported us in looking for the right house. When I came to Toronto for a couple of days before moving, in order to seek the apartment, she already defined the list of all the apartments which worthed to look at and at the end we found the right one.
Moreover, given the tricky situation in managing the movement from abroad with kids, she supported me in handling all the aspects related to the house which were not included in her mandate and duties. She really takes care of the client! Her help has been crucial to start my new adventure in Toronto!
We contacted Karen a few months before moving to Toronto to help us figure out how to start looking for our accomodation. She explained how the process worked which helped put our minds at ease and she was always quick to respond to any queries we had. When we finally landed she wasted no time in helping us find our new place and within a few days we had the keys to our new condo in a fantastic neighborhood. She sorted everything out for us which made the whole process very straight forward and helped us at every step of the way. Karen is a great realtor who is always very helpful, patient, professional and friendly and we could not recommend her more. Thanks again Karen. - David & KateKaren is helpful, patient, professional
Karen is an excellent realtor - she was always very responsive during the process and put in extra effort to take into account my needs and preferences. She was quick to notify me of new properties available and is externally knowledgeable of the market and of how to make her clients stand out in a competitive environment. I was able to find an condo in a short period of time despite only recently moving to Canada and would highly recommend her services to anyone in a similar position. Thank you, LisaKaren is an excellent realtor
Karen was prompt and professional. She really went above and beyond, helping us to get all the necessary documents in order and showing us a range of places. Thanks to her, we managed to get a wonderful condo in a fantastic neighborhood, all within two weeks of arriving in Toronto. She really is the best. Cai and TrionaThanks Karen!
Karen was a great help to me in finding my first condo in Toronto. Being new to the city and having no Canadian credit history I was at a disadvantage compared to someone already living and working here. Karen advised and assisted in putting together a great package of documents that helped make me a more attractive tenant to landlords. It only took a week from viewing my first condo with Karen and signing a lease. She went above and beyond in helping me find a great place right downtown and it ticks all the boxes.- John GriffinHappy Tenant
As newcomers to Toronto, Karen was fantastic at helping my boyfriend and I find our condo. She explained the whole process, and worked so hard to get responses and arrange everything for us.
She gave us great advice on how to manage the process, and helped us to get all of our documents in order so it was as smooth as possible. I'd heard the Toronto market was a nightmare, but Karen helped us to navigate that and really put us at ease with all the information. It's clear she cares a lot about her job.
Our condo is everything we were looking for, and we definitely couldn't have done it alone. I'd absolutely recommend her to anyone, but especially to newcomers. -Lorna and Kieran
Super organised, extremely dedicated and exceptionally hard working Karen McDermott went above and beyond to find us the perfect apartment in Downtown Toronto.
Before moving here from Ireland, we got in touch with Karen following several recommendations and it's fair to say she did not disappoint.
Karen worked around the clock and everyday she sent us new rentals to look at within our discussed budget and location.
Karen was quick to set up viewings and we found our dream condo on our first viewing.
Less than 24 hours after submitting an offer, it was ours!
Karen made the whole process super smooth for us in terms of paperwork etc.
We had no credit score or steady jobs at the time.
We couldn't have done it without her and we cannot recommend her services enough.
Sally and Steven
I cannot recommend Karen highly enough!! Karen was wonderfully informative throughout every step of the process from my initial inquiries through to signing my lease, and I honestly don't know how I would have managed to find a place without her. To anyone who is new to Toronto, or planning to move here, I highly recommend you contact Karen as she will help you navigate the craziness that is the Toronto rental market - even providing a checklist of documents that you can prepare in advance (that really help, especially if you don't have a Canadian credit score). As well as being thoroughly professional, she really cared about what I wanted and went out of her way to support me. Thank you again Karen for being so lovely, it made a highly stressful situation so much easier. Karen xNo stress with Karen on your side!
What can I say. Karen is amazing. Landed in Toronto from Dublin and after 5 days Karen got us a condo is a perfect location with everything we wanted. Highly recommend her work, from viewing places up to moving in and getting the keys, Karen sorted everything for us.Within 5 Days got the perfect condo for us
I cannot thank karen enough for how easy she made the process for us. I did a lot of research before I came over to Toronto but nothing prepared me for how hard it was going to be to find the right place for us, especially with how competitive the market is now. Karen guided us in the right direction in regards to having our documents in order and also gave us some great tips which worked amazingly. Within 4 days of being in Canada we had our dream apartment. Now 2 months in we're even more in love with our brand new condo and we count our blessings how lucky we were to find Karen. I could not reccommend Karen enough especially if you are new to Canada/Toronto , she really made us feel at ease. Ciara and DavidBrand new Condo!
Karen was amazing to work with, and super efficient. After landing in Toronto with no Canadian Credit, Karen advised on exactly what we needed to put together in terms of a renters portfolio. We met with Karen the day after landing in Toronto after briefly advising through facebook what our renting criteria was, Karen had then advised us of the market and the types of places we could get with our preferences and budget.
Within one week of looking in Toronto, Karen secured us with our dream condo, exactly what we were looking for in the perfect location downtown. Our new home ticks all our boxes. We we looking for a spacious, affordable one bedroom condo which has the living room and bedroom separate, with plenty of storage and a Den and we got just that, with a bonus feature of a lovely spacious baloney that gets plenty of sun. We could not be happier with our new home and we have Karen to thank for it. We initially thought it would take months for us to get a place as we had no credit, but Karen helped us out so much in terms of advising which documentation was needed and also liaising with the estate broker and landlord.
I would highly recommend Karen’s services to anyone that is looking for a home. I would advise friends and family when recommending Karen that she is super friendly and honest, I was not afraid to give my honest opinion on some of our viewings and she was happy to take my comments, she only wanted the best for us and for us to also enjoy our home hunting experience. Karen is extremely accommodating to all our needs, we needed a place with a home office/ den and Karen was mindful of this when showing us properties.
My girlfriend and I came to Toronto with no experience of ever renting a property.
Karen made the whole process really simple and was always on hand if we had a question.
Karen tailored her suggestions to fit exactly what we were looking for and she was able to secure us an apartment way quicker than I had thought possible.
I would absolutely recommend Karen to anyone looking to rent in Toronto.
We can't thank Karen enough for her help when we moved from Calgary to Toronto with our son! We hadn't started working yet and were completely new to the competitive Toronto rental scene - Karen had everything handled and worked tirelessly to find us a beautiful home in our ideal location! She knew all the steps to get set up in a new city and was an absolute asset, I have no doubt we would still be in limbo if it wasn't for her! We will definitely be recommending her to anyone moving over, and will be back in touch for our next move! ***Aishling and RichardMoving from Calgary was a easy thanks to Karen
