"Allie helped us buy our new home! As a first time home buyer, Allie made the process very enjoyable for us and never pressured us to put an offer for a place that we weren’t in love with. She helped us find our dream home and we are so thankful to Allie as she really took the time to listen to what we wanted and found exactly the home that we imagined living in. And when it came down to negotiations, Allie really fought for us. We wouldn’t be in our new home that we love if it weren’t for Allie going out of her way to find this place, which included sending us photos and videos before us deciding to visit.
We are very happy with our overall experience with Allie and the BREL team. For us as a couple purchasing a house in our late third trimester pregnancy and with a newborn, we are surprised at how smooth our home search was with Allie. She was always professional, thoughtful, and accessible. Allie was especially helpful in guiding the next steps for us a first-time home buyer and her team was resourceful in referring us to contacts that were very equally helpful. We got our home inspector, lawyer, all with the help of Allie which made the whole process least stressful.
It was a pleasure to work with Allie and we are so happy to highly recommend Allie for your next home search!"

"Kristin was great to work with on the sale of my home. She was very clear about expectations, communicated often and clearly, and always let me know that the success of my sale was first in her mind. In addition to her skills as a realtor, she was just a great person to work with. Stopping by with wine or packing supplies, treating me to lunch, and even bringing surprises for my dog; she does everything with a great client experience in mind."

"Brendan Powell and the Amazing Team from Brel were the best when it came to selling my condo! From the excellent suggestions to tidy for market to the selling approach, I couldn't have been happier.
Offer night went smoothly with great support from Mel and Brendan in reading through the offers and explanation of the fine print. The Brel team is very supportive and I would strongly recommend to anyone looking for excellent service.
Thanks to Brendan and Lisa, we also looked at properties on the Market while mine was up for sale and found the perfect place to put an offer on the same night as my condo was sold. A busy and exhausting night but a great success.A shout out to Mel who went through all the details for accepting an offer and submitting an offer on the same night."

"Working with Kristin was absolutely incredible. We had never bought or sold a property before, and had no idea what we were doing - Kristin was incredibly patient and very knowledgeable, and walked us through every step of the process (with a sense of humour to boot!). The fact that everything to do with our sale and purchase could be done online and on our schedule was a HUGE bonus.
Kristen made the most stressful time in our lives to date manageable, and we are eternally grateful for that! We would work with her and the BREL team again in a heartbeat."

Halina Bucchinorecommended by Buyer view agent's profile
"Halina was extremly helpfull and she understood my needs right away. While visiting potential properties, I always felt Halina was interested in making sure that I am satisfied with the property rather than pushing me into buying something. That was very important to me. Halina was always on time, upbeat, always went the extra mile. She truly made the conplicated process of looking for and buying a property a very good experience."

"We had the pleasure of working with Brendan when we sold our condo early this year. Being first time sellers we were very nervous about the whole thing but Brendan was there with us all the way. He was very responsive, very patient explaining things to us, and mostly the calm to our borderline neurotic nerves. More than that though, it was his integrity that was so important to us. We wanted someone who would tell us the ugly truth if we needed to hear it, no BS, and we appreciated his honesty always. When we were looking for a realtor we wanted someone who genuinely cared about us and not just the commission. And seriously, BREL is it. They go above and beyond! We actually met Mel first - she came straight from the airport - jet-lagged and everything - to meet. She is the best. That’s the kind of service you can expect. You want these guys on your team! From Brendan and Mel to Kiel and Jim - everyone is just amazing to work with."

"As a first time home buyer there was so much that I did not know about looking for, buying and eventually owning a home and Lisa guided me through every step of the process. When I first started looking I didn't know where I wanted to live or if I wanted a condo, a house, a town home. Lisa was incredibly patient, she never tired of my questions and made looking for a home fun! Lisa was both enthusiastic and committed to helping me find the perfect place for me. For all these reasons and more I would recommend Lisa as your agent."

"Anyone interested in selling their property should strongly consider Brendan Powell and The Brel Team. Strong communication with Brendan throughout the property sale was extremely important. He arranged all the details while prepping our home for the market and was equally helpful with information after the sale for our move. It as an overall great experience from beginning to end. Brendan Powell did an excellent job!"

"We worked with Matt in February to sell our home, and we couldn't have been more pleased! We received the right offer the first two days the house went on the market, thanks in large part to Matt and his team incredible work. Matt brought in an excellent photographer to showcase our home online, which brought in serious buyers. His marketing team is outstanding! Matt was wonderful in keeping the transaction moving along and getting to closing in a timely manner. He was always available to answer our questions and really partnered with us to sell our house. We had a great experience and highly recommend Matt!"

"Brendan Powel and the BREL team were amazing in both helping me sell my previous home and buy my new home. As someone new to the area I was looking in, I was really looking for an agent who was familiar with the area and would help provide sincere guidance for what to look for.
They made this experience very easy and stress-free with their quick responses (text or email), to-do lists for the new purchase and the survival package filled with helpful gifts. I would definitely recommend Brendan and the BREL team to anyone looking to sell or buy a property in the the Toronto area."
