"We were privileged to have Paul Karamat as our sales representative for our last three real estate transactions. Paul proved to be always honest, hardworking and realistic about pricing for both buying and selling homes in our area.
There were many services he provided some of which included a prehome inspection, a virtual tour, professional quality brochures with pictures of our home, and exceptional staging by his team prior to sale that we appreciated so much.
These extra things made a big difference and were the reason for what we felt was a very successful and positive overall experience.
We sincerely appreciated his integrity and hard work in each case. It was clear that Paul truly cared personally for our best interests. Several people we knew who went through our home gave us glowing reviews not only of our home but of Paul who made a great impression with his approach and presentation style during open house showings.
We highly recommend Paul to anyone needing these market services, as he is knowledgeable, trustworthy and sincere, and goes well beyond the norm
in terms of service and commitment. He does his best to ensure a very positive client experience.

We could not have asked for a more supportive buyer representative – thank you!
As incomers from the UK, it was particularly important to us to find a realtor who we felt we could trust and who took the time and effort to give us a clear understanding of the Canadian home-buying process, as well as the current Toronto market.
On our preparatory visit to Toronto, some months before we landed permanently, you provided us with a wonderful, personalized booklet about the process, which included all the key documents annotated with explanatory notes. This enabled us to grasp the differences between UK and Canadian practices before we started our search. You also gave us a good overview of the market, taking us to see a range of properties so that we could begin to understand what might be available within our budget.
Once we arrived, you patiently (and tirelessly) helped us refine our search, bringing relevant properties to our attention. You made sure we were fully aware of the fast-moving market conditions and of the likely interest in and sale price of each of these, as well as any possible concerns.
We worked together to find our first Canadian home. After only a couple of weeks, you pulled out all the stops to present our offer just a day after we viewed the house we finally bought. Thanks to your efforts, this was accepted before any other offers were made and we were able to move in just six weeks after we arrived in Canada!
We couldn’t have done it without you! As well a great professionalism and pride in what you do, you bring to the process a warmth and sense of personal commitment that is truly exceptional.
It goes without saying that, whenever we encounter anyone considering a move, we encourage them to get in touch with you!
With much gratitude

We would like to thank you for applying your personal touch to the service you offer in Real Estate. When we bought a house with you as our agent, it was simple, hassle free and you were always honest. Your knowledge helped to ease the nerves in this tough market. Then we had the privilege of you taking care of the sale of our condo. Your knowledge again was soothing, your impressive staging tricks made the place look elegant. The sale was quicker than we could have imagined and the price was fabulous too. You are a great friend to have in the Real Estate market on both sides of the process.
Regards, Bill and Carolyn
We simply want you to know, how pleased and lucky we feel to have had you as our real estate agent.
From our very first discussions through the final sale, we cannot imagine the process having been more professional and personally caring to our every concern and detail.
We’ll be looking-forward to spreading the word…letting our friends and associates know of our very positive real estate experience with you.
From the bottom of our hearts we thank you!

"Paul is delight to spend time with and to work with, as a real estate professional and as a person.
With Paul, one experiences good old fashioned service.
Paul listens, is informative, is prompt, follows-up, is organized, is patient, yet persistent, is generous with time, suggestions and ideas, and is considerate.
I will always remember, and am thankful for, his decision to show us four (4) properties; each was fully appropriate for our objectives-he did not waste precious time; his generosity in taxiing us around, locating legal services, suggesting possible contractors, and shepherding the paper through were illustrative of his "client service" focus; his way of helping us work through the various stages made all the difference.
In my observation, Paul knows the market very well, he is efficient and he seems to have that special sense of knowing what is appropriate and what will work to meet needs and objectives.
I view meeting and working with Paul as a significant gift. His calm presence and professional manner make it possible to enjoy the process of a real estate transaction,which is sometimes filled with complexity, uncertainty and endless details.
I am very grateful for Paul's assistance and insight Paul's approach and perspective affected my perspective in meaningful and fruitful ways and it has led to high respect, trust and confidence in him. I unreservedly recommend Paul where a real estate matter may be concerned , and I look forward to other possibilities of seeking his valuable assistance again".

We hired Paul as our agent for the sale of our existing and purchase of our new homes, and were extremely pleased with the service and results from start to finish. Paul visited when we first discussed a move to talk about expectations for sale and purchase, suggestions for minor improvements to increase marketability, and discuss a strategy on timing. He arrived with a booklet which guided us through the process as well as produced marketing material which was outstanding. Pictures of our home were taken by a professional photographer at no extra charge to us. Once up for sale, he promoted our home with a variety of techniques, some of which were new to us, which led to a quick sale. During the negotiation, Paul was confident that we could get our price, and steered us away from offers that did not meet our expectations. While viewing new homes to purchase, Paul provided advice specific to our situation, and moved forward in accordance with our decisions. Paul has now been involved in 3 sale/purchases for us and if we sell again, Paul will be our agent.

Steven Zarlenga and Paul Karamat came highly recommended by close friends of ours. They helped us to prioritize which efforts would give us the greatest return and they beautifully staged our house. We almost didn't want to move. It was a stressful time for our family and we wanted to move quickly due to our condo purchase. They helped to keep us calm and on track. Their guidance paid off. Our house sold in 6 days and for over the asking price. Steven and Paul were with us every step of the way. Just like our friends, we highly recommend Steven and Paul.
