Word of mouth. What my clients say



On this page you can find the most precious information - feedback from my clients. Sure, not all of them decided to write it, many opted for not making the general public aware of their property purchases. But those who did write, as you can see, did it with passion.

I am fundamentally against anonymous feedback like "John and Mary from Thornhill", therefore the reviews on this page have links to the accounts of their authors in social networks (mostly LinkedIn and Facebook) so you could get in touch with my clients and obtain further information from them - I work for your benefit and I do it professionally and carefully, so you could safely entrust me with your property issues.

It is my pleasure to recommend Ludmila as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for that perfect place to call home. Ludmila was amazing to work with. She pays close attention to what you say during the meetings, hence during condo shopping she did not waste our time with what were out of our price range or not in line with our needs. She is also highly personable, hard-working, has a great negotiation etiquette and is simply a pleasure to work with in such nerve-wrecking situation as house buying/selling. I am glad to know her, and if I am ever in need of a realtor again she will be my first choice. If you want to discuss my experience in more detail please feel free to contact me on LinkedIn.
Andrei Dizhevskii (https://www.linkedin.com/in/andrei-dizhevskii-5a63a762):
This was our first time purchasing a home in the Greater Toronto area, and Ludmila was with us every step of the way. We explored seemingly countless neighborhoods trying to get a feel of what kinds of properties my wife and I would both enjoy, and Ludmila's ample patience and attention to detail allowed her to hone in on our evolving tastes quickly. When it came time to put offers down on properties, Ludmila was very fast and workmanlike, and knew exactly how to bargain for the kinds of prices we were looking for. She was well equipped with the knowledge of what made a good home and what was a fair price for it, and she made the whole process seem very easy.
Marina Gorets (https://www.facebook.com/marina.gorets.1):
Ludmila was our buying agent. She represented our needs with the highest of standards and exceeded our expectations. Not only that, but we had a great time with her as she is very personable woman with a great sense of humor to go with her business knowledge. Even after we have bought, she kept informing us about similar properties, listed in the area, and even showed us some of them - only to make us realizing how great bargain our purchase is. We would refer anyone interested in buying or selling to Ludmila knowing she would provide top level support to their real estate needs.
Valentin Chervonyak (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/valentin-153624-.../en):
Ludmila has done a fine job and found an affordable housing for us. She has held talks skilfully and reduced the price to 95% of the listing. I will definitely recommend her service to my friends and acquaintances!
Ilan Loren (https://www.facebook.com/ilanloren):
Ludmila is really knowledgeable. Our requirement was a still affordable area in the GTA, not too far from the City of Toronto. Also, we wanted that area to have a good potential for prices increase in the near future. And Ludmila has found exactly what we were looking for! 9 months after the purchase, our circumstances had changed, and Ludmila sold that house for us in a price which was 90K more than the buying price! We were very positively impressed by the work done.
Janna Kotlyar (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100006488380414):
All we can say is WOW! We were very impressed with Ludmila’s professionalism and home search strategies, and discovered many subtle, but important things to consider when choosing a home. Ludmila is a first class, high caliber, real estate professional. We received her personal attention almost on a daily basis. She was always available for questions and took the time answering them in detail (and suggesting new ideas!), and that made us feel like we were her only clients (yet many phone calls she accepted in our presence showed us otherwise). Ludmila has mastered the art of home buying - she even managed to negotiate with the seller a price reduction (she knows "what buttons to push")!
Viatcheslav Schwartz (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100015036378927):
In the purchase of our Thornhill home, we never felt rushed or pushed to go in any direction on any of the homes we viewed. I would like to especially mention the price negotiation talent of Ludmila - she skillfully conducted a "price war" and managed to bring down the price of the home by 43,000 dollars! So, we recommend Ludmila to any person who is looking to buy or sell a home, as well as seek her service in any of our future real estate transactions.
Oksana Blednov (https://www.linkedin.com/in/oksana-blednov-b5a206106):
We began communicating with Ludmila via Skype in advance, when we were still in Israel before moving to Canada. After coming and while enjoying her services, we made sure she had exceptional qualities as a Realtor. But that is not the only reason why we recommend her services to newcomers. The second reason: she has a special accommodation program for property buyers, just having come to Toronto, who want to buy quickly and don't want to rent for long term (in Canada, the rent is usually for 1 year, and it's very hard to leave it earlier, even not always possible).

We checked in to Ludmila's furnished, short-term rental condo in our first day in Toronto. The condo has a free pool and is placed just near a nice park having a kids playground with water attractions. So, our feeling was more а resort vacation than an immigration. We spent the first few days doing the usual new immigrants' arrangements, and then Ludmila began taking us to properties' showings.

Buying a place to live is always stressful, and in this hot market, even more so. For us as newcomers to Canada, we needed explanations of every single detail from A to Z. Ludmila approached the entire process with a soothing, calm attitude that made us feel well taken care of. Now we are happy to say: we are homeowners!

We bought a property pretty quickly, so we checked out from the furnished condo earlier than it was initially planned, and Ludmila has returned us money for the not used days!
Nikita Tokmakov (https://www.linkedin.com/in/nikita-tokmakov-8629173a):
It didn't take much time to see that Ludmila is a highly professional realtor with up to date skills. She knows the property market, has great communication skills, she tailors her approach to each client, she knows law and has business-oriented mind...Ludmila just helps to concentrate on the most important criteria when choosing the property and this allows her clients to make the right decision. She always has advice on the best ways to finance the purchase, arrange insurance or draft legal papers - this was extremely helpful in my case. We made three home purchases with Ludmila and sold one property with her assistance (the very first purchase showed that Ludmila is professional, competent and honest person, and therefore I requested her support in all further transactions with our property). The result was always total success.
Yuri Yasvoin (https://www.linkedin.com/in/yuri-yasvoin-0aa25359):
As first-time buyers, we had many questions about purchasing a home and what to expect about the entire process. Ludmila has a wealth of knowledge of the Greater Toronto housing market. She supplied us with a large supply of listings that fit our price range and criteria, which she continually revised to better understand our needs. Ludmila never pressed us. Sometimes she even drew our attention to the deficiencies that she found in the viewed homes, and to problems with location we would never think about. Once we found the property we decided to buy, Ludmila was there every step of the way offering advise and making sure that the required information is collected, and the deadlines are met. Her husband, a mortgage agent, has arranged our mortgage. Ludmila is a great Buyers Agent and I am going to recommend all my friends to contact her only, if asked.
Julie Steshenko (http://ca.linkedin.com/pub/julie-steshenko/28/784/315/en):
Great person to deal with! It was our first house to buy. We felt great and stress-free because of Ludmila. If I need to buy or sell again I would not hesitate to ask her to be our real estate agent.
Denis Davidov (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/denis-davidov/99/934/1b9):
We appealed to Ludmila for help in buying a home, and did not regret it! As it was our first experience with buying a home in Canada, we were a little intimidated by the whole process, but our concerns were immediately put at ease by Ludmila's gentle demeanor, caring nature and superior knowledge. After endless hours of conversation, questions and showings, she found us the home that best suited our needs - regarding the location (a very nice, quiet and high-quality suburb of Toronto), size (number of bedrooms, total square footage and back yard), and price (below the listing price). From the moment we walked through the front doors, we knew that we had just entered our dream home! Ludmila's dedication and understanding not only to her job, but also to the needs of her clients, is superb, so we are happy to know that we have found OUR REALTOR.
Olga Heller (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/olga-heller/1b/362/742):
Buying property from overseas... I would like to say that Ludmilla is one the professionals that understands real estate, she understand what are your limitations and she can educate you and provide with deep insight of buying a house, condo, or any kind of property within your stretch. Ludmila has excellent communication skills, she walked us through the process before we even started any kind of paperwork, she explained to us the Toronto real estate market and what is important in purchasing the property. On top of that, she helped us to make a purchase remotely, and I'm very pleased with her professional approach and her ability to empathize and hearing my needs. I would highly recommend her services to any one who is looking for a great real estate agent.
Dan Stepanov (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/dan-stepanov/29/a28/964):
We really appreciated Ludmila’s advice and the way she managed the entire process from beginning to end. She handled everything very professionally, was realistic in expectations, extremely knowledgeable of the area and market, and up to date on current trends. Once we decided to go buy, Ludmila provided us a clear road map of the entire process and kindly guided us through it. All our questions were answered on time. The trust was built. Now we are happy owners of our dream's house in a very pleasant neighbourhood!
Tatiana Krupinina (https://www.facebook.com/tatiana.krupinina):
Ludmila is truly the best! She helped my husband and me to find our first home in Canada. She was exceptionally professional from start to finish, but more than that, was friendly, very helpful, highly responsive, and listened to exactly what we wanted. As the newcomers we are highly valued her strong knowledge of laws and specificity of life in Canada. She was organized, on time, thoughtful and caring throughout the entire process. She really got to know us on a personal level and this helped us work together toward finding potential homes that were right for us. Every time I enjoy the lake view from my new living room window I feel grateful to Ludmila for her great job. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a Real Estate Agent in Toronto!
Leo Enin (https://www.linkedin.com/in/leopardsnow):
Ludmila is a great professional real estate agent, she's helped us a lot with finding a good place to live... considering it was done in really short terms and result was great. I would recommend Ludmila as a great and supportive real estate agent.
Cuneyt Uykur (https://www.linkedin.com/in/uykur):
Ludmila was very helpful during my condo purchase. The best thing I like about her is the fact that she is always available. It was pleasure working with her. She very friendly and professional.
Xeniya Shirinova (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/xeniya-shirinova/43/696/709/en):
Ludmila was amazing to work with. She went above and beyond all of our expectations willing to go the extra mile in making our house hunting experience the best it could be. Ludmila was always willing to answer any and all questions as fast as she could. I would and will definitely refer anyone who is looking for real estate service to Ludmila.
Sergey Eremenko (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/sergey-eremenko/13/8a5/692):
Ludmila was our realtor in finding the perfect Toronto condo for us! Our experience was awesome because of her great personality and her willingness to help find the perfect place and not settle for anything less. I would recommend Ludmila to anyone because she has made our transition in to our property so easy!
David Potashinsky (https://www.facebook.com/david.potashinsky):
Our buying experiences with Ludmila began even before moving to Canada. We called her and asked to find a place to rent. But she answered: why to rent and not to buy? And - voilà! - now we are owners of a real property in Toronto! All went very smoothly. Ludmila's knowledge base of the area, diligence, and attention to detail made the transaction worry free. Her husband, a mortgage specialist, arranged the financing for our property оn very favorable terms (even though we had no established credit history in Canada yet).
Andrey Solovyev (https://www.linkedin.com/in/andrsolovyev/en):
We were foreign buyers, investing in real estate of Toronto - one of the most stable and profitable real estate markets in the world. Ludmila conducted a market research and helped us understand the local culture, realty business dynamics and renters' mentality and habits. She provided information about high demand areas and gave us recommendations regarding where and why to buy (or not to buy!) rental properties in Toronto - invaluable information for buyers, unfamiliar with the city.

We were residing in Moscow while searching and purchasing the property. Ludmila tirelessly proposed various variants (using Skype video to show us condos we considered seriously) until we found just the thing we needed. Almost the whole transaction was carried out remotely. Communication and documents transfer were performed via phone and emails. We were kept fully informed about every step, which made the process go very smoothly. Everything was organized in such a way that we had to come to Canada only for closing (Ludmila piсked us up in the airport and took directly to the closing lawyer).

After the purchase, she very quickly (in just a few days!) found (and screened for solvency) tenants for our condo.

Ludmila is brilliantly skillful and competent, working with a professional but personal touch. What is often a high stress task, became truly stress-free under her guidance. We are extremely pleased with both the results of our collaboration with Ludmila and the experience of communicating with her, so when we need to buy another property, we will undoubtedly turn to... guess whom?
