Welcome to theeastside.ca, a local real estate hub for Buyers and Sellers. I created theeastside.ca because I felt this side of the city was so under represented. There is so much development taking place down here I feel it is important to encompass all the changes. Often so much is overlooked and with all the development taking place I wanted to offer more. I have lived in many of the communities over here and have witnessed so much change, a change that was long overdue. Having lived over here my entire life I enjoy engaging in conversation about the improvements and what's to come in the near future.

Since 2003 I have worked with many current and past clients, residential/commercial and my knowledge of the business is vast having facilitated every aspect of the business from houses to condos, to condominium developments I am confident to say I have done it all. The complexities surrounding the future development of this part of the city will lay in government policy and the public realm. As we struggle to increase density the city will have no choice but to expand and the east side is where it’s going to happen. With the creation of East Harbour and the naturalization of the lower Don River we will see the city grow into the Portlands, the last remaining part of core Toronto to be developed and I can assure you it’s gonna be great.

With passion and connections with fellow real estate entities I am able to provide a service that is not only effective but one that promotes education, peace of mind and a local perspective in these great neighbourhoods. I look forward to sharing my knowledge whether it be through me or my Associates I’d like to pre-emptively (you’ll need to get used to this word) welcome you to the east side.

Real Estate Homeward, Brokerage



Built on morals we want our clients and anyone who does business with us to be happy. With our decades of experience we know what we’re talking about and have witnessed market fluctuations and realize there’s no perfect time to buy real estate. The real estate market is like the stock market, only it’s a tangible asset one that offers you shelter, quality of life, a place to raise your family, a place to be proud of…a home. Whether it’s a Condominium, house or a building project we’ve got you covered.

While many Realtors put all the emphasis on themselves shouldn’t they be thinking about the people they represent? After all if it wasn’t for their clients where would they be? When you work with our group we educate you and make you aware of what you’re buying, most people already start with a game plan but is it sound? Do you know your neighbourhood of choice or are you interested in it based on a recommendation? Working with a local Realtor just makes sense because they live/work in these neighbourhoods, perhaps maybe they’re biased but at least this is what they believe in, so you know what you’re buying and if you’re selling you'll have your biggest advocate in the business, doesn’t that sound great?


This city has been held back for too long, it’s hard to imagine but more than half of the skyscrapers in this city weren’t here just 10 years ago. As of 2016 we’re the 4th largest city in North America, with 2,731,571 core residents and 5,928,040 people in the Greater Toronto Area (2016 figures as per Wikipedia) we’re clearly growing faster than we can handle.

The neighbourhoods haven’t always been so robust and now there have been many new additions formed over the years on decommissioned land. With an amalgamation that took place effective January 1st, 1998 many of the neighbouring boroughs have been forgotten and the term ‘Megacity’ seems rather fitting. A lot of these new communities reside in Corktown, the Portlands, the east harbourfront and not to mention the ‘West Don Lands’ (although it’s in the east). Along with the new developments an older well known community that provides us a nice example of change is the Distillery District. Did you know the now ‘Distillery District’ previously owned by Gooderham and Worts (which at one point was the largest Whisky distillery in the world) sat vacant for easily over 30 years before it became a community? This is just one example of the changes taking place in the east part of Toronto. With all the new developments taking place we’re on top of it because we’re passionate about it, the changes that are taking place are without a doubt the most advanced in Canadian history.


Why work with us? Well, the question should be why not? Although we’re not historians it’s fun to watch this city grow and when you’re passionate about what you do the rest comes easy. Our roots are planted here, we love this city and we just so happen to sell real estate. Having witnessed the changes and staying on top of development trends we have an edge on the forever changing real estate market in the east side of Toronto. With a mutual goal in mind and many resources in the communities we represent, combined with decades of experience selling real estate I’m sure we’re more than fit for the job. If you want a Real Estate team that can offer you depth in the local market we’d love to hear from you.
