Top Real Estate Agents in Toronto

Find Real Estate Agents With Transactions Near You

There is a famous saying in real estate that the three most important things when buying a property are “Location, location and location”. Although location is only one of the many factors involved in buying a property, the saying rings true because you can change almost anything about a property, but you can’t change its location.

Finding the right real estate agent is more complicated, but location plays an equally important role. When it comes to finding a real estate agent, the three most important factors are:

  1. Local real estate experience in your desired neighbourhood
  2. Personality
  3. Commission

With WOWA.ca, you can keep up with recent transactions in your neighbourhood and find the top agents that have helped your neighbours buy or sell their homes. With a simple click, you can also view comprehensive agent profiles that go through their real estate experience, recent deals, personality, and commission rate.

Are there any differences in the skills of sales representatives and real estate brokers?

Not necessarily. Many experienced real estate agents do not apply to become brokers. While brokers take additional courses and exams to obtain a broker’s license, the broker’s license is only required for those who want to own or manage a real estate brokerage.

What is the difference between a real estate agent and a realtor?

Practically speaking, there is very little difference between a real estate agent and a realtor or REALTOR®. The term REALTOR® is a trademark that is often used to refer to a real estate agent and almost all practicing real estate agents are also realtors. Legally, realtors are real estate agents that are either direct members of their provincial real estate association or have registered with the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). Realtors have to comply with the REALTOR® Code. All active real estate agents are licensed and have to comply with the rules and regulations of their provincial governing body.

Are there any differences between real estate agents from famous brokerages like RE/MAX and smaller less-known brokerages?

The brokerage alone will not tell you how much value a particular agent can bring you. Brokerages can provide a brand name, but ultimately it’s your real estate agent that will do the work to help you buy or sell a property. You can find poorly-rated agents in brokerages of some of the largest real estate franchises and you can find highly experienced agents in less well-known brokerages.
