Testimonials

“My parents referred Frankie and Lina to my husband and I when we were considering buying a home because of the fabulous experience that they had selling my grandfather’s house. Frankie and Lina were even better than we could have imagined- they were communicative (the housing market moves fast…they move faster!), professional, accommodating to our needs, and we truly enjoyed spending time with them (even through what can be a stressful life decision). Within a week of contacting them, we had seen a handful of well-suited houses; benefited from Lina’s thorough knowledge of the market and Frankie’s incredible insights into the structure and value of the homes; and successfully BID on our first house (against 24 bidders- no less!). This team certainly knows their market and how to get an amazing deal for their clients- one year after buying, we made a terrific decision buying this home..and an even better decision choosing the Porretta’s to represent us.” Cristina and James Costa

“We purchased our first home with Lina and Frankie so when it was time to purchase an income property, we knew where to go. These two know the real estate game, they know Toronto but most importantly they know their clients. We started out thinking we wanted to purchase a house to rent but we were steered in the right direction to a condo. Because the team knew our lifestyle and future goals, they knew condo was the right choice- and we listened! They found us a great place downtown within a week and helped us lease it within 5 days!! A purchaser always wants to know they can trust their Realtor and with this team you get two professionals that don’t just want clients but want a real estate community.”Ermal Xhuli

“I recently purchased a property using The Porretta Group. Their knowledge of the homes in their service area is second to none. From start to finish I was pleased with their service and results. I found out first hand why “The Porretta Group” has such a great reputation and would recommend their services to anyone……Keep up the great work!!” Vito Di Summa

“Our thanks to you! I’ve never had a better experience with a real estate agent, except your father. You’re first class, Lina!”

“Back in 2010 I was a rookie first time home buyer, Frankie was patient, always available to guide and explain the process and what to look out for. Five years later no regrets or surprises and when I am ready to sell I will be going straight back to the Porretta Team! Thanks Frankie.”

“Lina made my first home buying experience a walk in the park. She guided me through each process, kept me well informed, was understanding of my needs and exuded patience. I purchased my first home in less than 1 month! Her industry knowledge, ability to read her clients and dedication has truly left me with a lasting impression.” Lili Chen

“Lina is such a pleasure to work with! As young adults and first time home buyers, we needed someone with skills, experience and patience! We got all of that and more with Lina. She is focused, attentive to needs, listens to her clients and makes you focus on not just the present but the future of your home as well. Lina found us the home we needed in a desired neighbourhood – she got us the results we needed in the time frame we gave her.” Catarina Cunha

He is very knowledgeable about the market, properties and building details. Lina is a professional from start to finish.

“Over the years, Lina’s passion for real estate has grown to make her a very valuable Broker in the industry. Not only in my experience working with Lina, but others too, has there been only positive feedback on how smoothly the process goes when working with her. Lina’s confidence is reassuring and her honesty is sincere. There’s nothing more a homebuyer can ask for than to work with someone who is trustworthy and genuine and Lina has proved that time and time again. Every SOLD sign put up is another job well done and deserved by Lina!” Nicole Luca

“Frankie never pressurized us during the search for our home. He always offered creative affordable ways to address any issues that could require short term or long term attention and was sensitive to our economic constraints. Very happy with his service, and would go back to him should we sell.”

“Lina’s commitment to her clients is exemplary and she is the only agent I know that can navigate the City of Toronto faster than a developer looking for a permit. She services her client based on their individual needs and doesn’t take a cookie cutter approach to real estate. It’s always a joy to work with Lina because the transactions go as smoothly as possible.” Tannis Waugh

“I cannot recommend Lina more highly. We have worked with her both as a rental agent and as a sales agent. She first took over the management of the rental of our overseas property — and at every turn, she greatly exceeded our expectations. She kept a good eye on the property and the tenants, reporting thoroughly on issues of concern, providing advice and asking direction. She took action on refurbishments and repairs immediately and thoroughly in a first hand, vital way, greatly easing our minds as owners 5,000 miles away! No one could have managed it better.” Sophia Dunn

“When it came time to sell the property, Lina Porretta’s advice was always expert, always helpful, never self serving. We sold our investment at a good price in a difficult market, and I believe that this was a result of Lina’s commitment to being an expert in her market.”

“Frankie never pressurized us during the search for our home. He always offered creative affordable ways to address any issues that could require short term or long term attention and was sensitive to our economic constraints.

“When my husband and I purchased our home Lina made the experience as seamless and stress-free as possible. Her deep insight into Toronto’s real estate market and the city’s many diverse neighbourhoods proved invaluable. I cannot recommend her more!” Safa Jinje

“Lina recently handled a property lease for me and she was professional, proficient, and dealing with her was a real pleasure. She was able to accomplish the desired results in a minimum of time. Her skills diligence and friendly personality are exceptional assets and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a real estate agent in Toronto.” Richard Klagsbrun

“Lina was such a joy to work with! She made our First Time Home Buying Experience, one that my boyfriend and I will never forget. Everything was absolutely seamless. Lina is professional, courteous and such a hard worker. She promised us from the beginning that we would find the perfect Condo and soon after, we did. She made us feel important and comfortable the entire time, even post-sale. I think that anyone in need of an agent or broker should absolutely work with Lina Porretta, you will certainly not regret it.” Samantha Fazio

“Lina has made our house-finding process as easy as it could have possibly have been. She is knowledgable in all aspects of the process and is a pleasure to work with. She is responsive, always available, generous and she understood exactly what we were looking for. She will definitely be our go-to broker for our next place!” Charlotte DiLecce

“I worked with the Porretta team for my first real estate purchase in late 2016/early 2017 and had a fantastic experience! The Toronto condo market was a bit hectic at the time but Lina did an excellent job responding to the market by being speedily response, suggesting properties that peaked my interest and generally giving me assurances that the Porretta team was working for me and had my best interests at hand. The real estate experience provided by Lina was non-rushed or pressured but still direct with the facts and gave me a full picture of the market, even down to the more nuanced level of neighbourhoods and specific buildings. Overall, great experience and I would happily recommend the Porretta team in helping you find your next real estate purchase.” Adam Black

“We want you to know how impressed we were with you and the services you provided to us in selling our home. From the first moment we contacted you, you showed a concern for our needs that we did not see in any of the other agents we interviewed. You led us through the process with professionalism and dedication, culminating in a deal that widely surpassed our expectations. Certainly, we would feel comfortable recommending you to anyone who is looking to sell his or her home.”

“Thanks for all the encouragement and support around the house. You made it all seem so straightforward and I know that’s only because you did so much work and much more. It’s the more I really appreciate. I couldn’t have done it without you – your patience, dependability, commitment, and just plain hard work. I was fortunate to have you as an agent.”
