Emanuel and Carol were extremely attentive. They helped me to look for a house in Waterloo. They showed me great deals. I was surprised by the speed of their responses when I had a question. I strongly recommend this team.
They are super professional and competent, they helped us a lot when it would seem that we would not get a property to rent. I highly recommend them, they are very committed and attentive. Thank you very much!
Super recomendo essa empresa!! Fui muito bem atendido por todos e principalmente sua colaboradora Carol!! Muito muito obrigado pela preocupação e o esclarecimento por tudo!!!
I have a lot to thank Valentin Michael Catana and especially Carol. We arrived in Canada and were desperate, because renting a house was more difficult than we imagined. Carol and Michael gave us excellent assistance and did everything they could to find our home. Carol proved to be very competent and reliable. I highly recommend.
Tenho muito para agradecer o Valentin Michael Catana e principalmente a Carol. Chegamos no Canada e ficamos desesperados, pois alugar uma casa era mais difício que imaginavamos. A Carol e o Michael nos deram exelente assistencia e fez de tudo para encontrarmos nossa moradia. Carol mostrou ser muito copetente e confiável. Super recomendo.
Catana Team helped me find a home even before I landed in Canada. I’m still in Brazil, but Carol has been helping me a lot, providing the best service that we could imagine. Emanuel is very kind and helpful too. We’re excited to get there and meet them in person. I recommend their work so far.
Muito atenciosos, Carol foi super atenciosa em nossa ajudar.
Carol is very helpful. She tried to find a place to me and always was available when I needed. I super recommend them for the quality of the service.
Even though my family does not have the ideal profile or credit score to rent a property in Canada, Emanuel and his team demonstrated that with initiative, hardworking and bargaining power, that they have, we can conquer exactly what we want. I have no doubts that they are the best at what they do and, when it comes to real estate, they are the ones we will always contact!
Emanuel helped to find our new home. He is a high level professional that always try the best for the customer.
I strongly recommend Emanuel :)
My husband and I chose Emanuel's work in the purchase of our last 2 houses, my cousin who bought a house with him, told us about his work, and since then when it comes to buying or selling houses we always choose Emanuel. Besides being an excellent and reliable professional, he is also a friend and we are more than satisfied with his performance and great work, and attention to us.

3Why should I use a Real Estate Agent to sell or buy a home?
Real Estate transactions are a full-time job. You must be ready to answer phone calls and show the home at a moment's notice. A Real Estate Agent's job is to take on these responsibilities so that you can be at ease during the transaction.
Real Estate Agents also have access to vast amounts of information and databases not available to the public. They will be able to learn more about a home than an average homeowner. You also have peace of mind that all registered salespeople in Ontario must be insured through RECO's (Real Estate Council of Ontario) insurance program, including errors and omissions insurance, consumer deposit insurance, and commission protection insurance.
4I'm thinking about buying my first home. Where do I start?
When buying your first house, the first question you need to ask is, "What can I afford?". In order to answer this question, you need to seek out a pre-approval. A pre-approval will look into your current financial situation and decide how much you can afford based on how much a lender will be willing to lend to you. For more information on the topic, contact us today, and we can put you in touch with a mortgage specialist.
5What is a Buyer's Market?
A buyer's market is when the supply of homes is greater than the demand. Simply put, buyers have more options when looking to buy homes. Some signs of a buyer's market include homes selling below the asking price, homes being listed for long periods of time before selling, and the average number of homes being sold is down.
6What is a Seller's Market
A seller's market is when the demand for homes is greater than the supply. With fewer homes on the market and demand still present, sellers may receive multiple offers on their homes, resulting in bidding wars and higher prices. Some signs of a seller's market include multiple offer situations, homes selling above the asking price, being listed for short periods, and selling quickly.
7What are the best upgrades to increase the value of my home?
A well-maintained and updated home will always attract more attention and benefit from the increased value. There are plenty of inexpensive upgrades that you can do to improve the value of your home. Before completing any updates, research current popular trends and choose updates that reflect these trends to have the most significant impact.
New paint and floors are the best way to give your home a new look without breaking the bank. You will instantly notice how much of a change they make. Some other improvements you can make are:
- Increase the curb appeal with a well-maintained lawn and flower beds
- Freshen up your driveway and repair any potholes or cracks
- Update the faucets in the kitchen and bathrooms
- Update kitchen hardware and doorknobs/handles
- Update light fixtures
- Complete any general repairs around the home
Follow these tips, and you are sure to increase the value of your home!
