OF THE HUNDREDS OF SALESPEOPLE I HAVE MET DURING THE PAST
TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AS A MANAGER OF REAL ESTATE OFFICES,
RITA CHEMILIAN HAS ALWAYS EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS.

There’s a reason why Rita uses the word “Reliable.” You can rely on her to put your needs first. You can rely on her to always be thinking of you. You can rely on her integrity. “Reliable” and Real Estate don’t always go together – In Rita Chemilian they belong together. Rita lives her life with strong family values – she brings these values to her real estate clients. Her clients become part of her “extended family.”

I have learned through experience when  you are buying or selling your home, Rita Chemilian and team are the only ones you need. Rita is so professional and caring about all her clients needs through the entire process . I have used Rita for three real estate transactions to date and have been thrilled with each encounter. Her team does go above and beyond so I do recommend Rita to all my friends and relatives. My recent home sale was completed in a few days with multiple offers and an over asking price.
Who could ask for more of their real estate agent?

Rita and Alan did an excellent job selling our house. Their hard work and commitment to their job is amazing. I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell their house.

Margaret and I would like to thank Rita and Melisa for all the hard work and time invested on our first home purchase. As first time buyers this was a new experience and we were stunned by how easy Rita and Melisa made it. We could not be happier with our purchase and would highly recommend the team to anyone in future.

I had not been involved in selling a house for 30 years. Rita and her team came highly recommended and I can assure you, that I was not disappointed.
Naturally I was nervous with the thought of now selling my home, as I felt sure the whole process would be different and difficult, however, Rita and her team were very patient and understanding with my inexperience and concerns. They were very knowledgeable and assisted me through each step at my pace. They made this experience very smooth, with their understanding and patience, since I had no idea what to expect.
I would certainly  recommend this team to anyone who is interested in selling or buying a home.
Brent & Janet Helm

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Rita and her team for the amazing job they did selling our home. When we first met with Rita and Melisa, we knew they were people we could trust. Rita came in with a solid sales plan, creating a team effort by combining her many years of experience with our needs. Once we had the house ready, she arranged for professional staging and photography to effectively showcase our home. By the time we listed on MLS, Rita had generated so much interest we were flooded with multiple showings and immediate offers.  Our home was on the market for 5 1/2 days and sold at a price well above asking, and our expectations. During the final sales process, Rita did an incredible job managing multiple offers to ensure we secured the right offer from the right buyer.
We cannot thank Rita, Melisa, and Alan enough for the great job they did, and we highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy a home!

When you decide to sell your home, one of the first questions you ask is “Who are you going to call?” Well, for us, Rita Chemilian was the only one person who we believed could guide us through the very chaotic waters of the current real estate market. Rita has extensive knowledge and skill, and works hard for her clients. At our first meeting, she presented an analysis of the local market and suggested alternative strategies for selling our home for top dollar. During the multiple offer presentation, Rita negotiated effectively on our behalf. Importantly, Rita demonstrated integrity in all aspects of our transaction.

Having sold our home, we then faced the arduous task of purchasing a home at our price point. This search required our daily attention, and we appreciated Melisa’s help in booking appointments to see through several homes. When Rita showed us through the home that we eventually purchased, she highlighted some features that could be updated to make this house our eventual home. This helped us to see this house in a different light. When it came time for us to make an offer, Rita supported us through the difficult multiple offer presentation. Her ability to customize her strategy to the specific situation no doubt contributed to our successful result.

We are “repeat customers” and highly recommend Rita Chemilian to anyone looking for an exceptional agent.

After a strong referral for Rita Chemilian, we signed a very attractive agreement covering the sale of my aunt’s home in Richmond Hill.  Once I signed the listing agreement, Rita immediately provided a full service arrangement including cleaning, staging and even some landscaping services.  She developed a very successful marketing plan that generated 119 showings and 13 offers.  This enabled us to create competitive tension in a short, coordinated and robust auction.  It was a terrific result for my aunt.  From start to finish, it was two weeks in duration and thankfully required little work on my part.

Marian Moorshead

Having seen Rita’s “For Sale” and more importantly “Sold” signs on lots of estate properties in York Region I decided that she would be one of the five Realtor/Brokers that I would interview before deciding who would represent my property. Her professionalism, outstanding personality, sense of humour, and dedication to her job showed immediately, and she became my first choice. And I have not regretted that decision for one moment since. From the beginning she has always kept me abreast of the latest listings, sales, and trends within this area. Rita produced a beautiful brochure and website describing my home, then she was present for all the viewings to make sure the clients were fully aware of all the features and details here, which certainly contributed to a fast sale. Then after the viewings she immediately updated me on the clients’ feedback. Needless to add with all this wonderful hard work she sold my home extremely quickly and for a record price. Would I recommend Rita to friends and family? Definitely, she was my #1 choice and should be yours.

Bal and Saneh

Rita Chemilian came into our lives when we were first looking to buy a condo. We first meet at an open house and we felt positive vibes and decided to work with her and part with another top real estate agent of 29 years with his blessings. Rita arranged for professionals to stage and photograph our home. She treated our home as if it was her own, putting it at the forefront of the market. She sold it within 10 days and above the asking price, using her skillful negotiation tactics. We have no hesitation in recommending Rita to any prospective buyer/seller. She is well organized, hardworking and pays attention to detail to satisfy the needs of her clients. We wish Rita the best of luck in her future endeavors.

Christina and Agostino Plati

My husband and I are grateful, honoured, and blessed to have met our real estate agent Rita Chemilian. It is our pleasure to recommend her as a top real estate agent who has helped us successfully rent out our home for the last 5 years until we were ready to sell. We finally decided to sell our home this spring. Within two weeks Rita had our home sold for top dollar. Rita’s presentation of our home is unsurpassable! Her dedication to her clients, her work ethic, and her experience are admirable. We walk away from the sale of our home not only with a great price but a true friend we know we can always trust.

Marilyn & Kevin

Kevin and I would like to thank you for such a successful outcome on the sale of our home. Without detailing all the complications you researched and dealt with to ensure the listing covered any foreseeable issues before the sale, let us just say how completely impressed and pleased we were with your professionalism and thoroughness at all times. And, of course, we are delighted with the outcome. Thank you both for a job well done. We highly recommend you both, individually and together, as top real estate agents.

Al & Sheree

Rita, I want to thank you so much for your work in getting the absolute top dollar for our home. Your experience and real-estate “street-smarts” in handling the various aspects of the marketing and sale of the house paid off handsomely. It turned out so nice too, that a family actually bought the house and not just a renovator. Once again, thank you for all of your hard-work on this sale.

Walter & Karin Modotto

Alan and Rita, thank you so much for your help, guidance and support throughout our house selling process. Your knowledge about the market and the price you recommended we list at, was perfect. We originally wanted to sell our house as-is and not do much work to ready it for selling,  but your gentle coaxing and partnering convinced us to use a house staging service. That was the best decision we made. The list of recommendations we received to spruce up our house seemed very extensive, but were mostly cosmetic in nature. With your help and support, especially Alan’s, the work was completed in a few short weeks. Alan as our sales rep, was fantastic. Coming in to check on us while we were getting the house ready and stepping in to help when we were running out of time. Just prior to our house going on the market, Alan started advertising it in the local newspaper and he put a coming soon sign on our lawn. Once our house was on the market, Alan provided updates and gave us confidence that our house was desirable and that many people were interested in it. On bid night, we were so impressed with Rita and how she handled the agents when they were presenting their bids. Rita continued to promote our house during the negotiations to get us the best price. In the end, the approach you guided us through paid off,  we sold our house for over asking price. Again, thank you very much, from the bottom of our hearts, you certainly are the experts in your field!

Mike and Nika Louli

Buying a house is one thing – buying a home is another – Rita Chemilian was a valuable asset in making that big decision. Our confidence in Rita was proven over and over again – she knew what we wanted and did not waste our time. Her integrity is what made us entrust her with our business and her hard work is why we live in our dream home now.

Anson Lee and Ivy Choi

Rita helped us to prepare the house to put on the market, advised what is the best price, kept us informed of the market, and most important, she stood by us in our negotiations. We appreciate her fast and efficient work to help sell our house in one week. Rita is professional and she made accurate and prepared presentations which gave us 100% confidence in her work. Rita, we would recommend you to anyone interested to sell their house. Thank you for your hard work, dedication, guidance and most of all for being a good friend.

Anita and Michael

Anita and I wanted to drop you a note to say thanks much for your help and services to successfully sell our house. It has been a wonderful experience working with you and your team. The professionalism and dedication you and your team demonstrated in selling our house is rarely found in today’s market place. We would recommend you and your team to anyone thinking of selling their house.

Gordon and Thelma Van Toen

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for providing such excellent, professional service. When we interviewed you, you had all the right answers and said all the right things. Then you followed through.

We followed your advice on decluttering and your home stager remade our house into a model home. The first person through the house said he was rushing off to put in an offer. We had three offers in six days at the close of the offer period and the house sold over asking in just a week.

Your advice was spot on and your negotiation skills proved to be superb. Thelma and I cannot recommend you enough.

Bill and Carol Pappas

We would like to thank you again for your patience, determination and optimistic approach in selling our home. We value your professionalism and genuine focus on our needs as your client. Your guidance was invaluable to us and we would be delighted to conduct business with you in the future and we would highly recommend you to our friends and neighbours.

Charlene Webb and Pauline Webb

When we were selecting a real estate agent, we wanted someone with integrity, knowledge and highly successful past experience. In Rita, we found someone who demonstrated all of those characteristics and more! Our experience with Rita Chemilian exceeded our expectations in every respect. We were very impressed with her personal attention to our needs. Just as a custom home is created to the specific tastes of the owner, so too Rita customized her strategies to meet the needs of her clients. It is no wonder that her record of sales is so impressive. Whether you are buying or selling, we would highly recommend Rita Chemilian to assist you in your own experience.

Christina Scorsis

I would like to Take this Opportunity to extend a big thanks to you and your team for a quick sale of my home. Your commitment & dedication to your clients is incredible and I would recommend your services to anyone looking for a true professional with an amazing track record.

Don Clements

Throughout the process of selling and buying, Rita expertly provided invaluable service wrapped in knowledge integrity and respect. Our success was her priority. We would highly recommend Rita to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you Rita for taking such good care of us through this process.

Fatima

Now that the “Sold” sign is up,we want to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for the effort, dedication, and professionalism you showed during the entire process of selling our home. Both Fatima and I were well aware of your knowledge, experience, and work ethic as a real estate professional. However, you exceeded all our expectations during the planning, staging, marketing and selling activities. We truly believe that your persistence, diligence, integrity, detail orientation, and skillful handling of all negotiations were the key reasons we got the full asking price for our home. Now, we are even more confident that you will be able to guide and help us in our search for a new home. Needless to say, we will have no reservations to recommend you to our family, friends, and acquaintances looking to buy or sell their homes. Once again Rita, a sincere thank you from both Fatima and I. We wish you continued success, good health, and personal happiness.

Kathy Welsh

Tom and I would like to thank you for the absolutely stellar service you have given us, both on the buy side looking (and eventually purchasing a lot) over the last couple of years and most recently on the sale side for our property. Throughout this time period you listened to what we wanted and provided exceptional customer service and advice. Each of the buy and sell processes were managed with the utmost integrity and professionalism.

Kathy Welsh & Tom Stefanik

Qing and Patrick

If you are lucky enough to have Rita as your agent, grab her immediately and don’t let her go! Outstanding professional dedication, attentive listening, skillful negotiation, persistent effort, effective pursuance and tested rich experiences are some of the most important qualities one can look for in a top-notch real estate agent. And Rita has them all. And therefore, we have been working with Rita on a number of real estate transactions over the years. The more we work with her, the more we realize how special she is as a real estate broker.

Sheree Maraj-Mihalij

Rita worked tirelessly on my behalf to ensure that my mother’s condominium was sold in a timely manner. When some issues arose that jeopardized the sale of the condominium on the date of closing, Rita worked behind the scenes to find out information from the other real estate agents selling units in the same building. Rita was then able to send emails to the buyers agent and to me with relevant information. I believe that the information which Rita provided directly ensured that the property closed successfully at the original price without any further problems.

In addition, I found Rita to be completely dependable no matter how difficult the circumstances were. She has an outgoing positive character with excellent people skills and her professionalism and availability at the moment’s notice made the selling of my mother’s property a much less stressful undertaking.
