My success comes from my client's satisfaction with my service - and over 95% of my business comes from repeat clients and referrals. Here are just some of the feedback provided by my valued clientele:
Adrianne was an amazing agent. We needed the extra help and a bit of hand holding to find our first house and she was there every step of the way. She taught us a lot, always took the time to explain things thoroughly and really educated us throughout the whole process. Once she figured out what we liked, she went the extra mile to preview houses for us and report back in order to save us the time of seeing every single house. She gave us honest advice, was always available to talk, and we definitely trusted her opinion. Even though it was a really long process to find our downtown home her service level never waivered.
When it came to selling our house we had total faith. She always worked her own open houses, which meant a lot to us, and held one every weekend until we sold. She helped us prep the house to look it's best and even brought a few things from her own house to help stage! Adrianne really made the experience of buying our first home as easy as it could be.
- Kim & Mark C. (Purchase in Roncesvalles, Sale of Condo in Liberty Village)
We were planning to sell our house, and when a “for sale” sign went up in a neighbour’s front yard we decided to check out their open house. We met Adrianne who was acting as our neighbour’s agent.
We were extremely impressed with the staging of the home – which was flawless. Adrianne was personable, extremely well organized, and professional. Our neighbour got a record selling price on our block for her home, and could not recommend Adrianne highly enough. So we decided to ask her represent us.
Adrianne walked us through everything: once we decided on a listing date she went through our house with us and prepared a list of affordable fix-ups that would be needed to present the house at its best. She worked out a smart listing price strategy with us, did up a schedule, booked a photographer for the MLS listing and virtual tour, and took care in helping us dress the house for showing.
Buyers loved the place, and we got a purchase offer higher than what we had hoped for.
Adrianne’s experience and thoroughness during the negotiating and signing of the purchase agreement carried on beyond the signing of the deal. When an unforeseeable delay in the closing date happened from the buyers end, Adrianne was right on the case to help make sure the necessary paperwork got to our lawyers, and that our deal did not fall through.
Our experience with Adrianne proved to us how essential it is to have crackerjack real estate agent representing your interests. I am deeply grateful - and like our neighour, I can’t recommend her highly enough.
- David Adkin (East York, Toronto)
As first time home buyers we were very apprehensive when it came to selecting an agent to work with. We had seen a few properties without any representation and that experience left us feeling overwhelmed and extremely cautious, as it was impossible to get an honest showing of a property by the seller’s agent. By a stroke of luck we were referred to Adrianne by long time clients of hers that sang endless praise about her skills as an agent.
While the first property we had her show us was a poor choice on our part, it was the start of our house hunt with Adrianne. We remember having a conversation with her after that first meeting where we expressed our concerns about the housing market and whether we would be able to find a house in our desired area that we could afford. Adrianne reassured us and told us that with patience and effort she would help us do that, and not to worry because ‘we are her people now’. Being first time buyers, we required quite a substantial amount of time from Adrianne, which she without question provided to us. We know that no other agent would be able to provide the level of service that she showed us. She was incredibly flexible about showing us properties when it fit within our schedule, and on a few occasions she saw properties on our behalf if we could not due to time constraints. As well, her knowledge of the market helped us make informed decisions about what properties were worth. This allowed us to avoided getting caught up in the competitive nature of bidding wars that can find you paying far more than what you are comfortable with.
We were so happy with the process that even when Adrianne went on vacation we waited for her to return even though we weren’t “legally” in contract with her. Shortly thereafter she helped us find the perfect house, Adrianne went to bat for us with the seller and secured it even though we were not the highest bidder. In fact, Adrianne sold us so well to the seller that he announced in front of his agent, that next time he was buying or selling a property he wanted her to represent him!
Buying your first home can be a very intense experience, but along every step of the way Adrianne did her utmost to make it as pleasurable, and fun as possible. We would, (and have) recommend Adrianne to any 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 6th time home buyer time and time again.
Jessica and Robert (Bloorcourt, Toronto)
As a first time homebuyer, I was cautious about the real estate agent I chose to work with. I went to a few open houses on my own, and came across the very high pressure agents that are all too common in the Toronto housing market. Adrianne came highly recommended through a friend and she did not disappoint. I found Adrianne really listened to what I wanted/needed in a home. She was very knowledgable re: the housing market in Toronto. Adrianne literally showed me dozens of houses and we discussed many more over the phone. She was honest and forthright re: the houses that we saw and what was fair market value. I never felt pressured to put an offer in or to make a quick decision. In the end, I found my perfect house and Adrianne was able to negotiate an amazing price for me. I have continued to sing her praises months after I have settled into my new home!

"We'd like to extend a sincere thanks for helping us sell our place. It was a really smooth experience, and you were really integral to the whole process. Where to begin? You prepared a very thoughtful analysis on the pricing, which was great. It wasn't ridiculously ambitious, but it didn't underestimate the market value either. It's a tough market to price things, and you did a great job. In terms of staging our place, you couldn't have done a more fabulous job. The amount of care and attention you devoted to getting it ready for sale was amazing. Special thanks for resolving the whole rug saga! It was a tiny but important detail, and you resolved the problem for us so that we didn't have to worry. Our place couldn't have looked better. (Sadly, it has gone back to kid-central, but at least we have the pictures as a keepsake!). If someone didn't know any better, the amount of care you gave it was as if you were selling your own personal property.
Your responsiveness and steady stream of feedback during the whole process was fantastic. I loved that we could e-mail you anytime, and you always responded so promptly. You didn't even get irritated when we continuously harassed you about the status of the condition on our offer! Seriously, you kept us in the loop on everything that was happening. I also felt that you were realistic about feedback and didn't "sugar-coat" the negatives. But you were also reassuring. That was extremely important to us.
Finally, we are very happy about the price that we received. It really boiled down to the initial sale price, and the second offer that you helped bring to the table. You handled it strategically, and we trusted you during the process - especially one that was new to us.
We'd recommend you in a heartbeat to any of our friends and colleagues. And I hope that you get a million calls from our building who are looking to sell their properties soon!
I'm sure I'm missing more feedback, but I think you get the gist.;-) Thanks again from all of us."

Adrianne made our first buy a great experience! She's extremely knowledgeable in local markets and really took the time to educate us. We were grateful to have someone as honest and trustworthy as Adrianne guiding us through this process - never pushing us, and always willing and able to answer our countless quesions!
-Monika L & Mike C (The Junction, Toronto)
Adrianne had made buying our first home such a pleasant experience that we didn't think twice when it came time to sell our house and find a new one. Over a seven month period of searching, she worked hard for us and maintained a professional and positive attitude, even when we changed our minds about what we wanted. More than just marketing our house and doing research on the area, she got to know the people on our street so well that she was able to identify the best potential buyers at our open houses, based on how their goals and personalities matched up with our neighbourhood. From her advice on how to stage our home, to baking cookies, to charming the visitors with her natural enthusiasm, Adrianne got us well over our asking price in just 2 weeks.
We then needed to get a house within a month. Because she had spent so many months working with us, she recognized the perfect house the moment she saw it, before it was publicly listed. On the offer night, there were 8 'bidders', and her down-to-earth and warm personality helped make our bid the winning one, despite the fact that our offer was almost identical to another.
Adrianne displays excellent judgment, knowledge and negotiating skills. But what sets her apart from other agents is her passion, her intuition and her true focus. Her goal is simply to find the right solution for her clients. Adrianne will always be successful, because she does what she loves, and she does it for the right reasons. Working with her made us successful, too!
-Paul &Melanie Shuebrook (East York, Toronto)
I recently purchased a new home in downtown Toronto through Adrianne. Being a first time homebuyer I was coming to the table with essentially no real estate knowledge and Adrianne was an incredible help in this regard. She was extremely patient in educating me on the pros/cons of numerous neighbourhoods, types of homes, and factors affecting purchase price & re-sale. All these factors enabled me to make an informed decision that I felt very confident about. With her professional yet easy-going approach, she was very quick to understand what I was looking for, and in no time knew what I wanted almost better than I knew for myself! She was great in representing my interests, and she negotiated me an incredible price on my new home in the competitive downtown market. I refer my friends to Adrianne and I recommend her to anyone in the market for a home. Thanks again Adrianne for an amazing home-buying experience!
- Dave C (Townhouse, King St. West)
We had a great experience selling our first home with Adrianne. From the first call we made to her office, till the night we signed the final papers, Adrianne was very well-organized, informative, and accommodating. She offered professional advice, kept us informed daily, but best of all, Adrianne sold our house in 1 week for a price well over our asking! Adrianne has all the qualities we were looking for in a selling agent, charming, energetic, and efficient!
- Cindy C. & Sebastian L. (Leslieville, Toronto)
Thank you so much for finding us our wonderful Toronto condo. We cannot imagine doing it with anyone else.
Your professional approach in listening to our wants and needs and then keeping us focused when we tended to stray from what was important was a huge benefit while conducting our search.
Your knowledge of the Toronto market saved us many wild goose chases on buildings and units that you knew would not meet our criteria. We quickly learned to trust your judgement in this area.
Although we were in a highly active market and you were obviously dealing with many other clients, our questions and concerns were always addressed. In fact, we were often surprised to find a voice message or e-mail response to some comments or question we had waiting for us when we arrived home. That's service!
When we got down to the offer stage, having your negotiating skills on our side, in the competitive, multi-offer situation we found ourselves in, helped us deal with this major purchase.
As we mentioned to you previously, your calm, sincere, honest approach to dealing with people and situations make you the kind of trustworthy realtor we will recommend to our friends.
-Bill and Diana (Queens Quay, Toronto)
Adrianne made the selling process as painless and profitable as possible. She provided comprehensive suggestions on how to improve our profit potential, while keeping a sense of humour and easing the transition from thinking of our condo as a home to thinking of it as an investment. I was extremely impressed by her professionalism and attentiveness to our relatively small sale - we always felt like a priority! Adrianne is a clear communicator, and has extensive knowledge of both the market and the city. I would highly recommend Adrianne!
-Kasari G. (King West, Toronto)
Working with Adrianne while looking for a new home was really a great experience. She was sensitive to what I was looking for and patient with my needs. She showed good knowledge of the local area that I was looking in. When we found the place I wanted, her negotiation skills really proved important. She was very good at explaining the process and making sure that I was comfortable with the decision that I was making. It was a pleasure to work with her and I am definitely going to use her again when it's time to upgrade!
- Dave Bianchi (North York)
Adrianne, found my ideal place! I have been in my new home for 4 months now and am thoroughly enjoying every minute of it. Thanks to Adrianne who listened attentively to my needs. Our first step was for me to provide a vision of what I was looking for in both a neighbourhood and residence. Adrianne, took me to several places, which gave us both a better appreciation for my needs. The journey was both pleasurable and educational. While I put pressure on myself, Adrianne was excellent in being a voice of reason and ensured I was not going to make an irrational decision. She respected my time, availability and budget requirements. I was very impressed with her knowledge of the different locations, areas and home sense, a key success factor for finding places suited to the unique and diverse needs of different clients.
Adrianne is a committed agent who gives her clients the time and attention they deserve. She referred me to an excellent professional network to assist where I had gaps, who made the whole purchasing experience pleasurable.
If you are thinking of enlisting Adrianne, you will not be disappointed! She has high standards and does not compromise.
- Tisha (Leslieville, Toronto)
Adrianne Parker is a professional! [She] makes condo hunting enjoyable and even fun. She is patient, listens to your needs and is always ready with helpful suggestions.
We chose the ReMax All-Stars Realty Inc. and got the team of mother Johanna and daughter Adrianne. They are special!
Johanna was great selling the condo in the suburbs. Adrianne was equally great finding the right place in the city.
