“What could have been a stressful and overwhelming time for two seniors facing a tremendous life change was instead a smooth and highly organized process.  Doug & Julie went above and beyond to assist my parents.. They were present to support them throughout, whether it was dropping to check on them, or regularly keeping in touch with me. Their enthusiasm, compassion, patience and sensitivity to the situation was amazing; they did not treat my parents simply as clients, but as people they took the time to get to know.”

“Throughout, the two-year time frame, I would contact Doug and discuss if it was an appropriate time to sell and Doug would give me his educated and upfront answer. He would tell me about the market and usually to hold on to it. I never felt any pressure and felt confident about what he was telling me…Also, there were some issues within the condo while open houses were underway and Doug personally took care of them – so he is a “great handy man also.” I would not hesitate to use Doug again and would refer him to my family and friends. Thanks again “Workman Team” for an excellent experience.” – Linda Smith

“I reached out to Julie from Keller Williams in a panic since my tenant gave me a very short notice to leave (from a previous lease agreement) and I was just about to travel overseas. Julie immediately reassured me and took complete control over the situation. She got the place listed in no time and manage it all end to end while I was away. I came back and the place was rented (over asking) and there was nothing for me left to do, what an amazing feeling! I’ve used her services for buying, selling and now leasing and the delivery is always incredible. If you’re looking a job well done and absolute piece of mind I recommend you choose Julie! Thanks again Julie and team!” – Sabrina

“Renting my Greektown home (short-term) and two-bedroom Leslieville apartment (long-term) is invariably super high-stress, frustrating, irritating and highly time-consuming. The Hughes Workman Team handled absolutely everything for me, from writing and posting the ads to arranging showings, checking references and credit, managing the lease agreements and collecting the deposits. As a result of their neighborhood knowledge and experience, I got outstanding tenants, higher rents and a hassle-free process. They respond immediately and remain calm, cool and collected when I’m freaking out.  Highly recommend them! – Kara Kuryllowicz

“Working with the Hughes Workman Team is great.  They were very helpful in telling us what we needed to do to rent the condo successfully. Along with recommending a monthly rental cost so we didn’t over or under price it for a market rate. Julie is very enjoyable to work with and extremely knowledgeable. She knows what demographic we were looking for and both times she rented our condo has found them. We have never had a bad tenant working with her” – Camielle Clark

One of the best decisions I have made was to join Keller Williams and the Hughes Workman Realty Team at the start of my career. My time at HWRT gave me intense hands-on training in a supportive and fun environment. From day one, I was encouraged to dive right into the business, and I gained ample practice qualifying clients, booking and showing properties, closing deals, and completing paperwork. I’m grateful to Doug, Julie and the rest of the team for helping me very quickly build confidence in my skills as a realtor.” – Margot Bolin (Past HWRT Team Member)

“Karolina has always had a talent for translating her passions into successful endeavours. She’s dedicated, hard working, smart and relatable- the essential characteristics of a successful realtor. Her candidness provokes trust among her friends and peers” –  Joanna Uzialko

“You guys know your stuff and a pleasure to work with. I felt very confident having you guys sell my condo!!” – Linda, 905-717-6884

“I came to Keller a little over ten months ago from a well known, competitive brokerage. I sought Hughes Workman out because I was overwhelmed with the success of other Realtors around me when I couldn’t even produce one potential client.  I needed not only support, but concrete, practical advice as how to procure prospects, follow through with leads, understand the showing, documentation,negotiating and closing processes…In other words, they took what I learned from school and applied it into the current market that was always infront of me, but didn’t understand how to navigate. Schooling and education to receive your licence provides the ethical, legal and practical overview of writing a contract, but it does not give insight a to how to engage and grow your business. I found this in abundance with the Hughes Workman Team. I will forever be indebted to them for their availability, guidance, reassurance and support. I came from a place of the imaginary, and was finally guided through with their support to making things happen” – Jane Prouse (Past HWRT Team Member)

We used the Hughes Workman services rent out one of our units in our 3 plex. We needed  specific type tenant as we live in the building and our other tenant is very particular so dynamics is critical. Additionally we had just renovated the empty unit and we were taking it from $1900/monthly to $2600. Julie found a tenant within 5 days after 6 other viewings that we accepted at $2500. Doug completed the reference checks and negotiations and lease documents and now 2 years later we still have these tenants who are  now paying $2625/monthly. When we need them to sell this building we will use them,if we need a tenant we will hire them and we do refer them to others. Feel free to contact us anytime. – Martin & Nichole

Our family company owns 19 different unique rental homes throughout the GTA. Most are converted duplexes that our company has renovated. or owned for as many as 15 years. I handle all the tenant situations. At one point we had 6 vacancies, which is when we connected with Doug and Julie. Vacancy is like a bad tenant it just hurts ! However in this case 6 represented about 15% of our portfolio.  Doug and Julie and their team located 4 tenants within a month, advised us how to split one unit into two for better rental options and helped us sell one house that had persistent bad vibes ! They staged it and sold it in 12 days at 109% of asking in an area that was (in our opinion) on the decline and no longer fit our plans. Would we use them again ? Without question and we have and will again this year. – Sylvia, Lewis Family Investments

“We were first time home buyers and in a market completely foreign to us. Karolina helped us learn the ropes of home ownership in Toronto and was always there when we needed her. She went above and beyond to make sure we felt confident and comfortable in our decisions while providing much needed guidance. Thanks Again!!!”  – Happy new home owner
