Alma is skilful, objective and practical-minded professional. I will refer our clients, but also refer other counsel and litigants to Alma for the very reason that she is focused, committed and skilled at managing separated spouses in real estate transactions.
This might not sound true, because at first I also doubted Alma. Her enthusiasm, empathy and proactiveness made me wonder if she is for real. I have lived in 4 continents over the last 14 years and rented apartments every year. I connected with Alma virtually when I was relocating from New York to Toronto in 2018 with a 2 month old baby. She made sure she understood my requirements and helped me secure an excellent deal without me seeing the apartment (which is what I needed as I could not travel to Toronto at that point due to immigration issues). She pointed out the pros and cons of each apartment. She made sure I could get in on day 1 and provided appropriate workarounds. Fast forward, one year later I decided to buy my own place. The only person came to mind was Alma. Buying is a big decision but she made it seamless. I am in a beautiful condo thanks to her. I don’t think I can say this for anyone else I have worked with globally - Alma understands people, she will not let you down.
After working with Alma to lease a condo in 2014, in 2019 my partner and I were preparing to purchase our first home and there was no question that we would use Alma’s services again. She is tenacious, knowledgeable and focused on meeting her clients’ needs. She helped us navigate a difficult sale with humour and grace. I’ve recommended her to multiple friends and family and won’t hesitate to do so again. Thank you Alma!
In an effort to keep this reasonably short, I'll mention the qualities that I have seen from you; You are always in a good mood and have a smile for everyone. Your positive attitude is very attractive and is key in this industry. You put your clients' needs ahead of your own and are very respectful to everyone. You are detail oriented, you have fantastic communication skills, and work well with others. You have extensive knowledge of the real estate industry, and I would definitely recommend you if I had a referral!! I wish you continued success in all your endeavours; I know you will be successful in whatever you put your mind to!
My wife and I recently decided to move to downtown Toronto. We knew what we wanted but didn't know where to start. Alma took us to see a variety of spaces that fit our needs, lifestyle and budget. She went above and beyond; helping us with moving details, giving helpful tips and reminders as well as running around picking up and dropping off paper work. Alma is an amazing resource. She made the process of finding a new space easy and enjoyable. We will definitely be giving Alma a call next time we move.
Alma is results oriented and has good people skills. Alma helped me recently with the tenant search for my condo apartment in Toronto. I am very impressed with her work. She was able to assess the correct rental value of the property and then was able to secure two offers at the full price. I would highly recommend Alma as a realtor for any real estate transaction.
Alma guided my partner and I through the process of leasing a condo in Toronto like a true professional. Every interaction with her put us at ease: she was professional, detail oriented and produced results. She guided us from the initial showings all the way to getting our keys and was always available for our questions. In addition, her great personality made stressful moments in the process more enjoyable! I would go out of my way to recommend her to friends and family and hope to use her services again in the future.
Alma helped me find a home in Toronto when I recently had to relocate from another major Canadian city for work. I had two weeks, a tight budget and no time to physically displace myself to go see the properties so I left absolutely everything in Alma's capable hands. Having never met me before, she immediately made me feel comfortable and took immediate control over the situation. She helped me every step of the way, promptly replied to my many e-mails and constantly kept on top of things. In less than a week I had signed a lease for a beautiful condo and could sleep easy at night. When I stepped foot into my new home for the first time, I was greeted with the wonderful surprise of a gorgeous city view, and an unobstructed view of the CN tower. It still catches my breath every time I look out my windows. And to think, I hadn't even seen the place to begin with! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alma to anyone looking for a great service, and a person who genuinely cares about finding you the perfect place to call home.
Alma is a sharp and quick-witted Real Estate Broker. She recognizes renter's needs and remains readily available throughout the process—a complete stand-out amongst agents.
I would not hesitate to recommend Alma to anyone looking for A+ real estate services. As a first-time home buyer, Alma demonstrated expert knowledge and patience as she guided me through the often-intimidating process from the beginning to the end. She assisted me with obtaining a real estate lawyer and a mortgage broker, where I was able to secure a great mortgage rate. Alma always answered my questions and concerns immediately and I quickly realized I could trust her with all my home buying needs. Often, Alma went above and beyond the call of duty and the result was the successful purchase of my beautiful first home. I am incredibly happy with my purchase and I am grateful to Alma for her assistance in making it happen.
I hired Alma again when faced with a household expansion and not only was she as amazing as the first time we met, but she exceeded our expectations when faced with pleasing two individuals instead of one. She listened to our requirements and delivered exactly what we were looking for, doing so with her energizing and honest personality. We have since moved in and are thrilled to call our new place home. We both look forward to getting to work with Alma again in the future; again I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alma to anyone looking for impeccable service from beginning to end.
My partner and I were first time home buyers looking to buy a house together. Alma Handzic helped make us feel comfortable and made sure we understood the buying process every step of the way. Alma never made us feel rushed in any way and made sure we were comfortable with any decisions we made. We came to see Alma as a friend and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.
The thing about Alma is that she's just wonderful to work with! We were first-time home buyers and completely new to the world of real estate. She was patient, enthusiastic, honest, and so incredibly helpful, and worked to allay any fears we had. She encouraged us to be informed and to use our instincts, and we ended up with a home we are absolutely in love with. She's smart and savvy and very strategic. Above all, Alma is kind, and we couldn't be happier with our experience with her.
I hired Alma to help me sell my condo. She came to see my place, made some recommendations, 3 days later she took pictures and put it on the market, and sold it the same day, over asking price, in the middle of December no less! I attribute this success directly to Alma's professionalism, knowledge of the market, and ability to move quickly to get the job done. Her enthusiasm and energy is contagious and made the process a pleasure from start to finish. I highly recommend her services. Thank you Alma! You're the best!
Alma is a professional and skilled agent. She helped me find an awesome place in Toronto in a short period of time. The best client service I have ever seen!
I don't think I could have turned to a better agent than Alma. She has shown great patience, knowledge and professionalism as I was buying my first home. Questions, concerns and minor matters were easily answered and dealt with by Alma, which helped minimize the stress of buying a home and prepared me for any unexpected situations that has risen so far. Most importantly, she is a great listener and understands people, which makes it a great pleasure to be working with her.
Alma was very professional, patient, understanding and supportive in assisting us to sell our home. She took our concerns and suggestions very seriously. She was also able to be very assertive in her dealings with other real estate agents and potential buyers when necessary. I would definitely recommend her services to others.
Alma was a true pleasure to work with. She is highly reliable, detail-oriented, responsive and committed to her clients in a unique way. The whole process from end-to-end seemed effortless for me and was so smooth. She worked with me closely and represented me in a very professional manner. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to rent or buy in the Toronto market.
Alma was fantastic to work with. She helped us out when we were in a bind and needed to find a place quickly. Very professional and patient, Highly recommend her.
For my first place and my first time moving Alma could not have been a more perfect fit! I knew absolutely nothing about Toronto and Alma was able to hand pick the areas she knew I would like best and she is the reason I am so happy to be where I am! Alma was and is one of the most dedicated people I know, and she shows her true passion in how much knowledge she has of the industry and how enthusiastic and loyal she is with her clients. I have recommended her to every single person I know who wants to move to the city and I am going to keep on doing so! She was with me the entire was from start to finish and was always just one message away. Thank you Alma for everything!
Alma has been an incredible resource. New to the city, she not only helped find me a rental unit, but then also found us a house to live in. She knows what her clients needs are, and will stop at nothing to help achieve their goals. Will be using her again!
I first met Alma when I was looking for a rental unit. Her attention to detail, speedy responses and dedication to helping me find a place was impressive. One year later I was in the market to purchase a house and went to Alma. Right away we felt like a team and naturally, we found a house that met our specifications and within our price range. What surprised me most was the attention even after the sale had been done. From inspectors, to electricians, to plumbers, to lawyers and even furniture! Alma has a fantastic network of individuals. She was present for every check-in, which was often several hours long. I will be working with Alma again and recommend her to anyone looking for a home. I have worked with five different agents in the past 12 years and Alma is hands down the best.
Alma came recommended by a friend when I was looking for my first rental condo in downtown Toronto — and I’m so glad I took the recommendation! From the first day I met Alma, I knew I could trust that not only was she organized, experienced and knowledgeable of the Toronto housing market, but that she had my best interest at heart. She was professional and personable. She recommended neighbourhoods that were safe and suited my lifestyle. When viewing listed apartments, she asked the questions of tenants and building residents that I would never have thought to ask. If she had concerns, she voiced them and encouraged me not to settle. Alma helped me find an apartment I loved that checked all the boxes on my wish list. Every step of the way, I felt that Alma was in my corner. She worked late into the evening and early in the morning to answer all my questions and help me through the process of applying for an apartment. Alma turned what could have been a stressful time into an enjoyable and exciting experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Alma to anyone I know looking for a realtor, and I look forward to working with Alma again in the future!
Alma has been an absolutely wonderful help in finding my first Toronto home. She was responsive, proactive, informative, accommodating and detail oriented. All that I could have hoped for. It was always clear that she had my best interests at heart and was a keen, fair, and successful negotiator on my behalf. I will not hesitate to recommend Alma to others, and look forward to working with her in the future myself.
