Meet Desmond and his Team


ABOUT DESMOND

 

I'm a life-long resident of Toronto, a city I love and believe is one of the best places in the world to live and raise my three boys. Along with my 16 years in the real estate industry, I've tried a few other careers, including my first business venture when I was 12 years old - my paper route on Coxwell Avenue in the city's east end. I also delivered pizzas when I was in high school, owned and operated my own taxi-cab and fulfilled my life-long dream of being a journalist. During more than a decade in the media, I was fortunate to work for the top news organizations in the country such as CTV Toronto (CFTO), Global Television, National Post, Toronto Star and the Ottawa Citizen.



I've done just about everything I can in real estate. I've owned my own company, managed one of the top producing offices in the city, and most importantly I've helped numerous friends, clients and relatives in what is usually the biggest financial decision they'll make in their lives. In real estate sales, there's nothing more rewarding than knowing I've played a huge part in the excitement after a dream home has been purchased, or a whack of money has been made after selling. The hours can be long, and I work most weekends. But it's the type of career that has given me the flexibility to have dinner with my family almost every evening, and to taxi my guys to their many activities. There's something about real estate that intrigues just about everyone. It's the talk at almost every social gathering. And why not? We can't help but be a bit curious about what our neighbour's house may have sold for. Whether you're buying, selling, or like me, helping people to do both, real estate is exciting. And to top it off, it's one of the best financial investments we can make, especially in Toronto.
