Her passion and assertiveness in real estate helped me find the perfect home. I am incredibly happy with my purchase, all thanks to Alma."-

I was looking for a condo to rent and Alma did everything possible and more to find me a place that would feel like home to me. She spent hours of her time to show me available units, negotiate with a landlord and get paperwork done as quickly as possible. She was always in touch and responded to my questions and concerns within minutes. I definitely recommend Alma to any prospective client. Thanks Alma for your help!"

I would recommend her services to anyone in a heartbeat.
Thanks again, Alma!"

Marc W., Director of Operations, The Harbord Group, Toronto
"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."
Greg H., Senior Manager, Toronto, ON
"Alma was a great pleasure to work with. It was easy to communicate with her and she always gave her best efforts with us.

Thank you so much for making it smooth and easy for us to find a new home! Couldn't have asked for a better realtor to work with."
Fredalyn B., Registered Nurse, Toronto, ON
"Simply put, you need to have Alma on your side. She arranged a great selection of condo viewings based on our preferences and was with us every step of the way, including negotiations and hand-over.

Greg H., Senior Manager, Toronto, ON

Andrew M., Senior Consultant, Toronto, ON
"I just want to start with saying that Alma was so great and wonderful to work with. We were new to the province and had a lot of questions and felt somewhat lost but Alma made the whole process so easy and pain-free. She was so helpful and she was still there to help us even after the deal was done. I don't know how we could have gotten everything done if it wasn't for her. She was always easy to reach and never made us feel like we were a bother when we had questions or concerns. She was very accommodating and patient throughout the whole process. We really don’t have anything but great things to say about her and would definitely recommend her to any of our friends and family."

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 have risen so far. Most importantly, she is a great listener and understands people, which makes it a great pleasure to work with her."
Mylan T., Accounting Professional, Toronto, ON
"Unfortunate circumstances left me in an uncomfortable position. I was moving to Toronto and required a place of residence. My previous rental agreement had been agreed upon, but the owners had pulled out of the deal at the last moment. I was then forced to find another unit while I was away on vacation, with significant time pressures in place. Alma was able to put together a list of units that suited my needs in an expeditious fashion. Once I decided on a unit, she worked diligently to ensure that I was able to secure it. She went above and beyond her duties by contacting my family back home and worked closely with them to complete tasks that I was unable to given the circumstances. Alma is an excellent agent and thanks to her, I was able to secure my dream unit while simultaneously being able to enjoy the remainder of my vacation. She was able to offer peace of mind during a very stressful situation. Her professionalism and experience were greatly appreciated. She is a very pleasant person and is extremely responsive. I thoroughly enjoyed my interactions with her and I would highly recommend her as an agent."
Dr. Chris K., Toronto, ON
"I don't usually use realtors and was hesitant when searching for rentals in Toronto. Alma's professionalism and sense of urgency to find something with a tight deadline changed all of that. She lined up three places that fit our criteria, and when those fell through she leveraged her connections to find another that fit all our needs. Best of all, she cares and it shows in her career as a realtor."
Jared C., Financial Analyst, Toronto, ON
"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!"
Farhad K., Lab Manager, Baffin Island, Nunavut
"In a recent relocation from Atlantic Canada, I was lucky enough to meet Alma. I was unfamiliar with the Toronto area and she helped me every step of the way - from local area information and specific building facts, to helping me settle the offer details and other paperwork issues. She even helped me with booking the guest suite in my building and liaising with the concierge for deliveries prior to my arrival. I don’t know what I would have done without her! She started as a great real estate broker but has become a valued friend and neighbour."
Cathy M., Air Traffic Controller, Gander, NF
"I was pretty nervous about purchasing a home since it was my first time and was relieved when a family member referred Alma to assist me. Alma showed me a number of places and patiently waited until I found the perfect home. Just last week I moved in and couldn’t be happier. Alma went the extra mile and was professional and knowledgeable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alma as your next real estate agent."
Tim C., First Time Buyer & a Real Estate Investor To Be :), Toronto, ON
"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."

Verena U., Retired Nurse & Duncan M., Retired Journalism Instructor, Toronto, ON
"I was returning to Toronto after two years working abroad and needed to rent an apartment as quick as possible. The reason I decided to contact Alma was her website: easy to search, abundance of apartments, nice pictures and excellent description. I dropped her an email with my requirements and she responded immediately. The whole experience of doing business with her was nice and easy going. She demonstrated professionalism and genuine willingness to help and, on top of all that, she turned out to have a very pleasant personality. She is the realtor to trust and I will not hesitate to use her service again and recommend her to my friends."

"Alma is results oriented and has good people skills. Alma helped me recently with the tanent 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."
Sudhir S., P. Eng., Toronto, ON
"Alma has extensive knowledge on the current and future market and was able to articulate clearly what the current needs of landlords are as well as tenants. Throughout the one month my roommate and I was working with Alma, she took the lead in booking viewings whilst managing both our busy schedules. The bookings however, were not ordinary bookings but were bookings tailored to our specific needs. Considerate of our busy schedule, working above and beyond our expectations, Alma successfully negotiated, sealed the deal for the condo that my roommate and I wanted. I could not have asked for a better realtor to work with. An individual who is passionate on delivering excellent customer service, and truly a pleasure to work with!"
Karen S., Senior Consultant, Toronto, ON
"Alma was very knowledgeable about the market and was with myself and my roomate througout every step of the process.

She also went out of her way to take care of the post-deal phase (getting the keys, meeting the landlord, etc.) She puts her clients above everything else."
Ria. G., Senior Research Consultant, Toronto, ON
"I recently made my first condo purchase with the expert assistance of Alma Handzic. From start to finish, Alma was a patient, thoughtful and reliable real estate agent. I must admit that I was not sure what I wanted as our search began, but Alma was wonderful at helping me narrow down the options, weigh the pros and cons, and articulate my needs. Alma provided me with expert advice, helped me better understand the real estate market and finally made me feel like I had the right knowledge and information for my big purchase. From showing me properties to making an offer to closing the deal, she was always on top of the details often reminding me of important dates!! I can highly recommend Alma Handzic as a hard working agent who will go above and beyond for you!!”
Testimonial by Heather M., Etobicoke, ON

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."
Testimonial by Jessica S. & Blair K., Toronto, ON

I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home and look forward to using her in the future."
Testimonial by Kate C. and Rob M., Toronto, ON
"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 pleasing two individuals instead of one. She listened to our requirements and delivered exactly what we were looking for, doing so with her energazing 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."

As such, I would highly recommend Alma Handzic to other real estate investors anywhere in Canada and abroad!"
Testimonial by Raymond Y., Real Estate Investor, Western Canada
"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.”
Testimonial by Devon C., Markham, ON

We came to see Alma as a friend and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house."
Testimonial by Brent S., Toronto, ON
"I found Alma online, an agent that specializes in finding rental properties for people from out of town. It's very stressful when you are not in the city to see the place and I trusted Alma to find me what I was looking for. She did that for me and she was very helpful and assisted me with all the steps that were required to rent the condo that she found for me. I would certainly recommend her and I would use her if I was ever to need to rent another place in Toronto again."
Testimonial by Kait S., Winnipeg, MB
"I contacted Alma Handzic when I needed help with a client that had a severe personality disorder who needed to find a new place to live. I wanted someone who could be sensitive to the special needs of this fragile elderly client. The care and patience that Alma showed this client was extraordinary. She demonstrated that she was willing to do whatever it takes to show this client and her family the dignity they deserved. I would not hesitate to use Alma again because she has integrity and she will do only what she truly believes is in the best interests of her clients."
Testimonial by Yvette B., Toronto, ON
"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 Handzic to anyone looking for a great service, and a person who genuinely cares about finding you the perfect place to call home."
Testimonial by Marie-Eve P., Montreal, QC
"Hi Alma! Karim and I want you to know that, working with you as a salesperson was a very rewarding experience, you were very efficient and responsible and managed the situation in a very professional way.

Testimonial by Maria P. & Karim P., Toronto, ON
"With only a few weeks to find a new place to live, I contacted several real estate agents in the Toronto area with the intention of booking appointments to visit apartments. Alma responded almost immediately with several places in mind. She took into account mine and my roommate's needs and we found a place that was absolutely perfect. I am thrilled with how things turned out as Alma made the application and finalization process as smooth and painless as possible. I would recommend Alma to anyone looking for a place to live, whether it be for rent or for purchase."
Testimonial by Jason D., Toronto, ON
"Alma Handzic was an absolute pleasure to work with. Moving to Toronto from across the country is a very daunting task and Alma was able to help ease the transition. We were able to find a place and get a deal through with peace of mind. Alma is great to work with and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a professional agent to work with."
Testimonial by Shirley J.L. & Yan L., Richmond, BC
"Alma Handzic is an exceptionally dedicated and professional sales representative. She gives her 110% to the task in hand along with maintaining an excellent relationship with her clients. The fact that she spent most of her birthday serving her clients speaks volumes about her work ethic. I wish her all the best in the future and thank her for her services."
Testimonial by Faizan A.B., Toronto, ON
"Moving to downtown Toronto from Victoria, BC was intimidating to say the least. The challenges of finding the perfect place to live are magnified when you cannot view the rental properties beforehand! So many things can go wrong for the renter when you are leasing an unseen property with an unknown landlord.
After sending many unreturned emails, leaving many unanswered voice mails, and speaking with some dubious landlords, I came into contact with Alma Handzic when inquiring about a condo in a new building. Alma made all the difference in my housing search!
Alma returned my initial email within the day; I provided her with some information about what I was seeking, my budget (as a student, this was paramount) and told her I was most interested to live in a particular condo building. She immediately (and I mean within a few hours!) had a list of suites, within my financial reach, in the exact building I was seeking.
I let her know which suites I was interested in, and two days later she had visited both units on my behalf. I had a lease signed within the week and my trepidation about cross-country move has turned into excitement about my new suite in the heart of the Entertainment/Financial district. I had spent over a month searching for a place, and Alma nailed me my dream suite in under a week.
The best part about working with Alma was the close contact that she kept; all of my emails were answered within the day, and we kept in contact via text messages and over the phone. She stayed on top of everything. I appreciate how she really listened to what I was looking for and what I could afford; she was more than willing to negotiate a better leasing rate on my behalf. She was incredibly informative, keeping me informed about what was going on in her search and what my ‘next steps’ would be. I had never signed a lease on my own before, and Alma really went above and beyond to help me get set up. She walked me through everything, from obtaining credit reports, to where to sign and initial documents, to where and when to send cheques, to what the landlord could legally include in the lease, even how to set up a hydro account! It was reassuring to know someone over there had my best interests at heart!"
Testimonial by Erica G., Victoria, BC
"As a first time clueless homebuyer in Toronto, Alma had been an excellent realtor to work with. From the viewings to the offering and closing processes, I had never felt like Alma is just a realtor I had to work with to get the deal done. Alma conducted herself as if she is a close family member with vast knowledge of real estate, and that she is working with me and watching out for me. She pays attention to details and kept me informed of the happenings throughout the process. In fact she is just as helpful with my inquiries even after the deal has closed.
Her recommendations of mortgage broker, lawyer and contractor are also excellent.
I would definitely work with Alma again for any future real estate needs and would highly recommend her to anyone else."
Testimonial by James T., Toronto, ON
"I was looking for a decent, sweet-hearted realtor because I was new in Toronto and a first time home buyer. So I needed great help from scratch to purchase my first property.
Alma guided me in so many ways with patience and I was moved by her kind and thoughtful way of dealing with things. She truly works with her heart. Now I am living in a cozy condo unit that I found with her. I deeply appreciate her work for me.
I would definitely like to recommend Alma to my friends when they need a great realtor."
Testimonial by Samantha S., Toronto, ON
"Hi Alma, I am again looking to lease my condo at 725 King Street W and since you were such a great help last time I thought I would employ your services again. Please let me know. Many Thanks."
Testimonial by Nicole D., Toronto, ON
"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 :)”
Testimonial by Nicole J., Toronto, ON

Testimonial by Miranda J., Toronto, ON
“Dear Alma: I would like to express my gratitude for your outstanding work. Firstly, referring my clients, Anita B. and Roman B. to you resulted in them raving about your professionalism, expediency and understanding of their situation and needs. You have eased their move to Toronto and made things much more pleasant and simpler than they have anticipated, which meant a great deal to them. They very much enjoy their new home, as you know. They also talked a great deal about your integrity, outgoing personality and willingness to dedicate time and energy to going beyond what was expected of you; you have introduced Toronto and its gems to them to a large extent. I must say that it is precisely this kind of conduct that will result in your business flourishing further. Secondly, I thank you for your exceptional work with Sandra. She has been looking for a trustworthy and result oriented realtor for some time. You have certainly impressed Sandra with your resourcefulness, both in terms of your connections and understanding of the real estate market. She has expressed that she will undoubtedly work with you in her future investment projects. Sandra does not waste words and I know her to be a person who gives compliments and praises only where and when they are due; it is not often that such high praises are given by her. Bravo! I will continue to refer people, including my clients, to you. Thus far you have proven to be the right person to know and deal with for those who are purchasing real property in Toronto, for residential or investment purposes. Once again, thank you. I look forward to further development of our professional relationship.”
Testimonial by Anna S., Edmonton, AB
It's been a little more than a month now since my daughter and I moved in to our new apartment and I want to thank you again Alma, for all your hard work. We are very happy here. Your energy, contacts, and insight allowed us to find the perfect spot for our needs. You and I viewed many units until I found the one that met my particular needs. Your ability to take on my search as if it was your own has really paid off for us. I would quickly and without hesitation recommend you to anyone looking for a new home.
Thank you again Alma."
