Client Testimonials

By: Gordon and Joan Stevenson

Tanya displayed an outstanding knowledge of all the protocols involved in the sale of a home. From the initial visit to our condominium, the photography, the preparation of the paperwork to the actual listing, Tanya and her team were highly efficient and the time lines exceeded our expectations. Beyond this Tanya provided very necessary information concerning moving from our present home into our new condominium. Her input was invaluable and made us aware of the many issues which arise as the closing date is reached. She suggested many options available to address these issues with the best possible outcomes. Her experience as an interior designer results in knowledge and expertise above and beyond many Real Estate Brokerages. “Your home is your castle.” It is very obvious that Tanya believes in this sentiment both personally and professionally. Joan and Gordon Stevenson.

Our experience with Varsha and FH Keystone Real Estate was nothing short of wonderful. At a time in our lives where things could be overwhelming, Varsha made sure our real estate selling experience was everything we needed. She took the time to share details in ways we could understand and made sure that everything we were doing felt right to us. Varsha’s time and attention to detail helped us to make sure our house was ready for selling. Her up-to-date knowledge of the market and her ability to build relationships with not just us, but also other realtors, helped to ensure we were able to sell in a timely manner and for top value. From our first contact, Varsha made sure we were always involved in the selling process and we felt nothing but confidence in our entire experience. I would not hesitate to reach out to Varsha again!

From the moment we met Tanya, we knew she was the agent for us. Tanya took time to get to know us, learn what our priorities and expectations were. Our house sold quickly and at record-breaking price in our category. A pleasure to work with and we highly recommend Tanya and her team at Forest Hill Keystone.

Tanya was amazing during this process. As a first time homebuyer I understood very little about the process but at no point along the way did I feel overwhelmed or uncertain. Tanya was always reachable and extremely friendly throughout my search for a home. I really enjoyed the process and can whole heartedly say that anyone who chooses to use Tanya and the Forest hill team will not be disappointed. I will be recommending her to my friends and family and would use her again in a heartbeat when it comes time to do this all over again. Thank you Tanya and Forest Hill!!!!

When we made the decision to sell our home for something bigger, we knew that finding the right realtor would have the biggest impact to our experience and financial outcomes. Accordingly, we were not shy about interviewing local realtors and getting multiple perspectives on the market and sales strategies. We placed our trust in Tanya Fernandes because it was clear from the outset that she was telling us what we needed to hear, not what one would imagine we’d want to hear. Her humble confidence in her approach put us at ease through what is always a stressful transaction. As someone who has both bought and sold with Tanya I would not hesitate to recommend her. On the sale of our house, her staging, strategy, and eye for detail help us cut through competing listings and set a record for our neighborhood. On the purchase of our new home she patiently found us exactly what we were looking for, in the very neighborhood we wanted and got the deal done on our preferred terms. We couldn’t have asked for or expected more. Completely satisfied.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Tanya for a little over 6 years now. We decided to use Tanya to list our home and the experience we had with her was second to none. Tanya goes the extra mile and utilizes her design skills to showcase your home to the fullest. She is incredibly organized and makes sure nothing is overlooked. She quickly transformed our home into a showstopper, listed and SOLD for exactly what we wanted in one day! She is professional, honest and extremely passionate about what she does. If you are thinking of selling your home and want all your bases covered then Tanya Fernandes is the realtor for you!!! 5 plus stars ALL THE WAY!!!

We cannot thank Katie enough for finding our dream home she made the buying and selling experience seamless. We were really nervous selling our house since it’s a major purchase in our lives. Katie made the whole experience of selling our house easy and stress-free and ensured us that we would be able to buy and sell our house at a realistic price that we could afford. She is helpful, knowledgeable and always available to answer any questions which made the buying and selling easy for us to understand and able to make it the best decisions based on our budget and experience. When we sold our home, Katie had our best interests in mind and she fought hard to get us the best price possible, she really goes above and beyond. Katie is a true professional with a terrific understanding of the real estate market. Thank you once again Katie for making our homeownership dreams come true!

Working with Tanya was an amazing experience! She made the home buying process so remarkably painless, and my wife and I felt that she was with us in that process every step of the way. Tanya is a true professional, but during the process we never felt her to be clinical when working with us. Tanya cares. While we searched for our home she was truly concerned with our feelings, and her ability to stay attuned to our needs was uncanny. I have had other dealings with realtors in the past, and I have to say that working with Tanya was an entirely new experience. If I can sum up Tanya's professional approach in the simplest terms, I would have to say that Tanya simply wants to help. In an industry that can often feel disingenuous at the best of times, Tanya Fernandes is the opposite. She will take care of you, and I hope that other people that decide to work with her will find their perfect home, just as she helped us find ours! Thanks so much Tanya! We are deeply appreciative for all your hard work!

I saw Varsha’s sign on another property in my neighborhood and gave her a call. My home was on the market for 4 months already and I needed a second opinion. Not only did she exceed my expectations, she staged and professionally marketed my home and it sold in a week! For over asking! Varsha is professional, knowledgeable and kind. She makes you feel taken care of in an otherwise stressful time. Happy I made the call!

I have never worked with a more dedicated realtor than Katie Bianchi. Katie helped us with our recent purchase and sale transactions and we couldn't be happier with the results she produced. She is attentive, responsive, proactively kept us in the loop when waiting on news and consistently delivered on her promises. Armed with a solid knowledge of the real estate atmosphere, she offers sounds advice and solutions, but will not hesitate to go up to bat for you when needed and will go above and beyond what you expect of her. Not to mention she made the experience as stress-free as possible, selling our house in just 2 days in the August market! If you are looking for a realtor that makes you feel like you're her only client and will get you the results you want, Katie is your girl!”

My journey started on January 21st when I signed up with my realtor Tanya Vakil Fernandes to represent me in the sale of my Condo. Many of you know that one of the most stressful life events is the sale of your home, however, Tanya created an awesome experience for me that provided only excitement and even many laughs! Tanya has proved to be one of the best choices I made in my life. She is a competent professional that demonstrates her care for her clients’ needs. How does she do it? Very simple, she LISTENS and pays attention to what the client is sharing with her. Not for a minute did I feel any pressure to do something I am not comfortable with. On February 13th Tanya and her team took over my condo and "D'zigned" (staged) every room and corner. I came home from work and WOW I was in awe by what I saw! The place looked so beautiful; this is what you see in magazines. In fact, when my family saw the pics they fell in love with my "new look". And on the lol side, my 11-year-old grandson took great fancy to my newly "D'zigned" home and asked his Mom to hire Tanya to redesign their home. So, on Feb 15th we went live with MLS! Of course, with the great job Tanya did with the pics and 360 tours the amount of showings where crazy. I even did not mind to stay away and eat out every evening to accommodate the many showings. Guess what, on Feb 17th, barely three days on the market and the offers started to flow in. Tanya is the queen of realtors! My condo was sold at 51% above asking price!!!! Yes 51%!!! This journey may have reached the end but let me tell you that my journey with Tanya has just started. She will now help me with finding my new place to live and most of all she is a friend for life. If any of you are in a need of a realtor, I know that Tanya is the one for you! So, keep her in mind and feel free to contact me for more information (416 451-3359). I highly and most comfortably recommend her services! Tanya, I can't thank you enough for all your hard work and for making this experience so easy and flawless. You showed me that your heart was in this making this an easy and relaxed event for me. I am looking forward to be working with you on my next milestone.

Varsha, your kindness, patience, and expertise were so greatly appreciated. You made what could have been a difficult transition point in my life easier. I am eternally grateful for your hard work and commitment in helping me find my new home.

Working with Katie was a wonderful experience for us. The decision to purchase another home and sell ours was a quick and unexpected one, and without Katie's reassurance and attention to detail, it wouldn't have been as successful. She demonstrated her knowledge and professionalism in dealing with other agents and consistently showed that she conducts her business with INTEGRITY. In this industry, it is refreshing to have someone who puts clients first, no matter what. We would highly recommend Katie!

Selling a home can be very stressful especially when the market is not very cooperative. However, we were able to transition smoothly because of the wonderful realtor we had opted for. It was the best decision we had made. Right from our first meeting, Tanya was very punctual, professional, and optimistic. Her enthusiasm was prominent. It was a pleasure to work with Tanya. Her foresight, in depth and knowledge about the market and her staging skill helped us get more value for our home. Whenever we required assistance, she took the time off her busy schedule and assisted us. I highly recommend Tanya as your real estate agent.
