We were referred to Marian by friends who had worked with her to sell/purchase their homes. She did not disappoint, and ultimately helped us find the home of our dreams! Marian was professional, responsive, patient and accommodating during our two month search. These qualities, together with her affability, made Marian a real pleasure to work with. The outcome pretty well exceeded anything we could have hoped for. Thanks, Marian!

Marian is extremely professional, highly responsive and a pleasure to work with. She relieved much of the stress of the buying and selling process. I used Marian for the sale of my last two condos: the first sold after only one day on the market, and the second after only five days. I was very happy with the results!
Marian made the potentially stressful experience of selling our condo into a very pleasant one. She was extremely organized, efficient, and professional. She answered all the questions we had and was extremely responsive. Very practical in her approach, she brought realistic expectations to us and was always upfront with us. With her help, our condo sold very quickly (noting that it was listed in November). We would love to have Marian represent us again!

Marian has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She was extremely knowledgeable the market and regularly provided us with both guidance and insight. Marian was diligent in dealings with other sellers/listing agents and made herself available to support us throughout the entire process. Marian bring a degree of professionalism and report to her role as a fantastic real estate agent!

Marian helped us buy our first house after a long, 15-month search. I was very impressed by her professionalism—not only towards us, but also everyone we dealt with during the process. She knew when to be patient, when to put her foot down (if we started second guessing ourselves) and when we needed some encouraging. Plus, her knowledge, responsiveness and humor made the buying process much easier. We couldn’t be happier with the final result.

As time-stretched business professionals, my wife & I lead extremely busy lives. Despite the fact that we are good decision-makers, in our search for a new place to call home, we were concerned about securing accurate and trustworthy information, especially in the unpredictable Toronto real estate market. We knew we wanted to be really well taken care of during every step of the process. We also wanted to avoid making a bad investment decision. Marian helped us with responsive advice & solutions, she provided us with high-quality business expertise in order that we make the right decisions with an eye to building long-term equity. When we found our dream home - along with 4 other groups of eager buyers - we needed a persistent negotiator on our side, as well as someone who would be able to calmly guide us through what was a nail-biting three day negotiation process. We love our new home and couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. With that said, she didn't only help us buy our home (in fact, she has helped us buy two homes now), but she also did a fantastic job selling our home. She not only assessed the current landscape and helped us set the picture price, but she was able to drum up considerable excitement and interest in our house using her network and various techniques. The result was that we sold our home within just a few days of listing it for more than we were hoping for!
I have so much confidence in Marian’s abilities that I have recommended her to friends, family, and even my own clients, who were looking for a Realtor. The bottom line is that if you need a Realtor who will always go beyond the call of duty, will always have your best interests at heart, has tremendous market and investment knowledge, is extremely professional, and pays attention to every detail in order to ensure the best outcome every time, then you have found your Realtor!

Selling my home was a seamless, trouble-free experience thanks to Marian. Her knowledge of the market in the Toronto area was impressive, she knew exactly how to feature my home impeccably and market it to sell quickly at an exceptional price.
Marian had the necessary tools, techniques and selling expertise to reach out to the broader community and pull in a whole new buying audience for my home.
Her level of care, attention and personal interaction on every aspect of the selling experience was very reassuring for a real estate novice like me – it gave me great confidence leading up to the sale as well as following.
Her level of service well exceeded my expectations.
I would highly recommend Marian to anyone looking for a professional, highly experienced and savvy real estate agent.
As first time home buyers we were nervous about all aspects of buying a home. We were starting from square one, but Marian made the process accessible and user friendly for us. She was professional and always made us feel as if we were her first priority. Marian's response to our emails and phone calls were always quick and knowledgeable and we never felt like we were left waiting. Her down-to-earth personality always made us feel calm and taken care of, even in the midst of the crazy Toronto market! In the end, we found our dream home in a very short period of time. She kept us focused and helped us to trust our instincts. We would recommend her to anyone and will certainly use her again if the opportunity arises.

Marian was an absolute pleasure to work with. She guided us through the home-buying process with solid information and advice but never pushed us to make a decision. She was always willing to accommodate our schedule and helped us see as many properties as possible. Through it all, her professionalism and good spirits never wavered. On both the solid core business of real estate and the intangibles of dealing with people during what can be a stressful and emotional process, Marian truly is a stellar Realtor.

Marian Keriakos has handled several real estate transactions for our family over the past four years, culminating with the recent sale of our large luxury home in Richmond Hill and the concurrent acquisition of a rental condominium unit in downtown Toronto. We’ve found her to be charming, efficient, knowledgeable about the local real estate market and, most importantly, extremely responsive to our ever-changing requirements. Regarding the sale of our home, Marian conducted thorough market research before recommending the appropriate asking price, assigned an excellent home stager to advise on the preparation of the house for listing, and she assembled a very professional collection of online and physical marketing materials to be used for the sale. The result was that the house sold at open house on the first day at 99.9% of asking price. With this impressive performance, we would not hesitate to use Marian again to represent us on a home sale or purchase in the GTA area.
Tony & Pamela Whittaker
Shock!!! That's the only way to express how impressed I was with how well executed Marian's plan materialized to price, market and ultimately sell my house. We had an offer at list within hours of listing and it sold on Day 1 at well above list. Her professionalism, planning and negotiating skills were the key to getting a result that not only met, but far exceeded my expectations. I would work with Marian again in a heartbeat.
Marian is one of the best brokers in Toronto. She has supported me on my last 4 transactions and I have found her to be incredibly professional and solid in negotiations. She has a keen sense of strategy and her background in finance is a noticeable advantage. She’s personable, unbelievably responsive, and has been a great partner to me in my real estate ventures. Marian has my full confidence and I believe anyone looking for a broker would be fortunate to have her represent them.
Marian put a great deal of time and effort in working with us to prepare our home to go on the market as we had to relocate to San Francisco for work.
She must have set a record with her strategy and approach...getting a full price offer after only 2 hrs on the market!!
Out of the six realtors that we have used over the years in both buying and selling, she was, by far, our favorite. Marian exceeded all of our expectations (which we know are high) and made a stressful time extremely easy with all her support.
We really appreciated Marian's efforts in making our relocation go as smoothly as possible.
We can only hope we are fortunate enough to find a realtor here in SF that works as hard and is as nice as Marian!

We worked with Marian Keriakos to sell and purchase our last home. I can strongly recommend her work. Marian was extremely prepared, professional, competent. Her great work ethic, and ability made selling and purchasing our home very pleasant. I recommend Marian to anyone who is looking to buy and sell a home.
I can't say enough good things about Marian. She patiently devoted tremendous amounts of time to me over a 1.5 year period to find the place of my dreams. I was very particular and it was a tough market, but ultimately we found the perfect place for me. Her patient and diligent approach made what could have been a frustrating experience a pleasant one.
When it came time to sell, Marian's keen advice had my place sold for asking in 3 days!!! I was delighted to say the least.
Marian is a very dedicated agent who really listens to your needs. She is also incredibly professional and a lot of fun to work with!
I have worked with Marian numerous times and I am very pleased with the work she does. She is very professional, has a great work ethic & attitude, is very knowledgeable, punctual, reliable and polite. I would recommend her to friends and family without a doubt.
I worked with Marian when it came to get into my first condo, and while the experience was a little nerve-wracking as a first-timer, Marian's professionalism, depth of knowledge and sense of calm made the entire process very positive. When it comes to my next place, I plan to work with her again. She's wonderful; highly recommend.
I had no clue as a first time home buyer. Marian combined high expertise with seemingly limitless patience and a great combination of drive and integrity. You get what you want and know you got it the right way. And in plain language--she's not the gross, smiling, smarmy Real Estate agent that's out there--she's a top-notch professional. You'd be lucky to have her on your side--selling or buying.
By the way, just wanted to say a big thank you for once again doing a great job. I am actually shocked how quickly the condo sold and closed. As usual, it was an absolute pleasure working with you. Anthony
Transaction after transaction, Marian is still my first choice when it comes to working with a real estate agent. She is very accommodating and completes her work in a timely manner. She has also provided help, advice and support everytime. Her working attitude is probably the best I have seen in real estate agents!
Marian made the dream of owning our first home come true! Marian made the process less daunting with her reassuring professionalism and showing that she truly cared as a friend. She went that "extra mile" by driving out here in the middle of a great snow storm to show us some houses. That spoke volumes about her dedication and commitment to helping us find the perfect home, sweet home. Domo Arigato!
My husband and I were leary going to a real estate agent to find a rental property downtown, but we are so glad we did! Marian's expertise and knowledge of the downtown core along with her enthusiasm and non-stop energy helped us find our dream condo so quickly. She is professional, efficient and willing to go that extra mile. She took the time to understand our needs and present us with the best options. It feels so good knowing you have a pro on your side!
Patience is a virtue. Marian is just that - patient. Throughout the whole process from selling to buying, Marian made me feel comfortable and secure. She always ensured comfort and support when I was in doubt. Marian went above and beyond her duty to ensure that I saw a variety of condos. She always picked something that I would like - that is dedication. She was there for my best interest. In such a short time. Marian's determination, confidence, professionalism, and patience, made the entire process of condo shopping worthwhile. I would definitely recommend and work with Marian again to purchase my next home.
Marian made selling very easy! She was extremely helpful and professional throughout the entire process. Our best interests were her top priority. We appreciate that she was patient and made herself available when we needed. I look forward to continuing to use her valuable service in my targeted search of a new place to settle.
We turned to Marian to both sell our old house and to purchase our new one. There's no arguing that the process is one of life's most stressful events -- but with Marian's expert help and even keel we'd sold our house and bought our dream home -- all within a month! Marian really listened to our needs and her attentiveness was extremely reassuring. We couldn't have asked for a better representative in the business!
Joanna & Steve
Marian’s knowledge of the entire process made us feel safe and secure. She knew exactly - almost instinctively - what we needed and always went above and beyond to make certain we had it all. Her dedication let us know that there was always someone on our side looking out for our best interests. One of the biggest life events to undertake (buying or selling a home) just became a whole lot easier – thanks to Marian.
Marian’s professionalism and diligence helped me find a fantastic condominium in an upscale area of Toronto. Her take charge attitude and sense of humour resulted in a successful, smooth, and painless transaction. Marian’s knowledge of the market was invaluable in helping me find the condo of my dreams within a very short period of time. Marian helped make it happen!!!
Let me just say that Marian is a fantastic agent. After a dilligent search, she found the perfect newbuild condo for me (Icon 2). She never tried to sell me something that wasn't appropriate for my budget or taste. I bought early-pre-construction in November 2000 and I've been happily occupying the unit since September 2003. Marian also did a stellar job in the negotiations and put me in touch with a lawyer and a mortgage specialist that made the transaction really easy. True one-stop shopping! I will definitely do business with Marian again - to sell my condo and to purchase my next home.
