As a first time home buyer, Claudine, Mike and the entire Montano Group did a fantastic job in helping my partner and I navigate the real estate market. Their many years of experience and expertise was evident in the sound advice they provided, which resulted in our successful purchase of a beautiful ravine-lot home! Mike was extremely patient throughout the buying process. He was always available at a moment's notice to take us to last minute viewings which was imperative in an extremely fast-paced market! We are grateful and appreciative of the Montano Group’s hard work. We would recommend them as your trusted agents to get you your next home!

Claudine and her team sold my Toronto condo for top dollars! Claudine’s behind the scenes team was absolutely incredible. From the beautiful staging to the professionally filmed videography, I am convinced all this added value to the condo. This was evident when other comparable condos in the area sold for much less than mine! When it comes to selling condos, Claudine is competitive and someone you want on your side! I would recommend Claudine to anyone looking for a real estate agent to fight to get you top dollars!

If not for you, I would still be renting now. Thank you for walking me through the steps of owning a house. Your detailed explanation of what I should do after unofficially qualifying me and determining the approximate price of a house that I could buy encouraged me and got me excited about the prospect of being a homeowner. Your professionalism and expertise in your field is truly remarkable. You knew I was a small fry - qualified to buy one under $400,000 only. I heard about your million/multi-million dollars and high six-figure deals yet you treated and respected me as if I was one of your privileged clients. You never made me feel small. Instead you made me feel tall. The speed with which you got me a mortgage broker who, like you, trusted me to come up with all the requirements just as speedily so I can immediately get pre-approved for a mortgage made possible your finding a house that was just right for us. We had to be out of our rented apartment in 60 days. You understood that we had to find a house immediately and you acted fast. You were most patient with us as when we requested to see the house again and again since my co-maker son and I have different availability due to work schedule. You showed us a number of listings and when we decided on one, you gave us all the comparable sales in the area so we could have an informed opinion to come up with a fair offer. You kept us updated with the status of our mortgage application, educated us all about the mortgage and the terms putting us on familiar grounds such that when the mortgage broker came back to us with the approval, we readily understood his explanation.

Not in my wildest imagination did I think that I could own a house this soon. As you know, I have been here in Canada for less than ten years. Working as a nanny and later for a minimum wage pay, I raised three children as a single parent. I thought owning a home in this market was simply beyond me. But you gave me hope and you found one that I thought did not exist. While it is quite a distance from where I work, it is manageable. My children and I are happy with our home. You made it possible for us to experience pride in ownership.

Thank you very sincerely.

Our family was truly grateful to a very considerate broker, the Montano Group. We were able to purchase our first home because of their trust and help in all our needs in this matter. We are pleased to have them in this buying process.

Thank you, Claudine, for your diligence in bringing this sale to fruition. Claudine made good on her promise to get me top dollar. The professionalism and bright attitude she brought to the table made it a pleasure to work with her.

Claudine and the Montano Group were amazing. They managed and took care of the sale of our condo, allowing us to focus on other aspects of our lives. Claudine listened to our needs and priorities, then developed a strategy to best fit our unique situation. They were also transparent and pro-active throughout the whole process. We are very satisfied with their services and highly recommend the Montano Group.

I called Claudine on a whim, sensing that she knew the market and got results. She did, but not only that. She also priced the house right, did the hard work to know her comparables, staged, fixed, advised, painted, negotiated hard, communicated often, laughed, brought coffee and was extremely human and approachable. Her combination of skills and service, combined with her empathy, approachability and stellar performance are top qualities that make her thrive.

Claudine, Mike, and the entire Montano Group were instrumental in helping me buy my first-ever home. They not only helped me find the perfect condo, but Claudine and Mike guided me through every step of the home-buying process. I don't know what I would have done without them!

Claudine and Mike are the ‘dynamic duo’. They’re an amazing team to work with, whether you are buying or selling or both. They gave us good advice on how to prepare our home for the selling process and provided relevant and timely information on the properties of interest to help us make informed decisions. We put our trust in them and were very happy with the end result. We are blissfully happy in our new home thanks to them!

It is with distinct pleasure to write about our experience in selling our home in Thornhill and in purchasing a condo in North York.

Claudine and Mike provided excellent service in both selling and preparing our house for sale and in finding us a condo that was in fully renovated and in perfect condition. Thank you Claudine and Mike.

I recently began my hunt for a condominium unit in Toronto with Mike. The process was not easy- it took many days and many viewings before we found the perfect place. Through it all, Mike was patient and gracious with his time. He is clearly well-versed in both the market and in Toronto generally. Beyond that, Mike is a great person. He is personable and an absolute pleasure to spend time with. Together, he and Claudine function as a well-oiled machine. I am so grateful for all the time and effort Mike put in and am happy to say that we found the perfect unit for me! I would recommend Mike and Claudine to anyone looking to rent or purchase in Toronto (or anywhere)!

We’ve just found our second property with Mike and Claudine and couldn’t be happier. They are a pleasure to work with and always kept our best interests at heart. Mike repeatedly went above and beyond to find us listings that we might have missed, and was really helpful on-site answering questions and negotiating on our behalf. Their knowledge of the market is amazing and they will always tell you honestly what they think, a rare quality to have! Beyond their great service, Mike and Claudine are just wonderful people you can trust to have your back. We would use them again in a heartbeat!

“We purchased our first home with Claudine and she made it a wonderful experience. Claudine and the Montano Group responded so quickly to our phone calls and questions and understood all of our needs. They are fierce when it comes to competition and are no nonsense agents. We purchased a great home because of them and are truly grateful. They are a great team!“

From the first moment we contacted the Montano Group, they stood out from all the other real-estate brokers that we had previously interviewed.

Their professionalism was there during the preliminary work and attention to details throughout the process. We felt very comfortable to leave the sale process in their capable hands.

They had completed their financial evaluation of our house and surrounding area for comparison as soon as we had contacted the team and before they arrived for an interview, this was impressive enough.
The arranging of the fixtures and furniture coupled with the photography was second to none. The best part was the brochure and video they presented. I could not believe that it was the same house and grounds that they were showing off to its best advantage. It was so good that I almost stopped the sale realising how nice it looked from someone else’s point of view.

No wonder it sold in four days, and well above what we had asked for.
Whenever anyone asks me to recommend a Real-Estate broker I have no hesitation but to recommend Boots Montano and the rest of the Montano Group.

"I have known Boots Montano and her family for thirty years. During that time she has been my friend and Real Estate Agent. She has assisted me in buying and selling several properties. Her advice has been invaluable in preparing properties for sale and she is cool and logical at the offer table. Boots always has my best interests at heart during any transaction and I appreciate her honesty and direct approach."
Violet M.

It is a pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Mrs. Boots Montano whom I have known for the past five years.

From a professional level, Mrs. Montano has done outstanding work in the real estate industry. Her many skills and talents have earned her admirable awards during her real estate career. She is my real estate agent and I have successfully bought and sold properties under her guidance. I feel confident in acknowledging that Mrs. Montano demonstrates a pattern of indefatigable energy, as she works tirelessly with her clients in an effort to bring them desired results. Mrs. Montano’s other training experience in banking and business, add to the well-rounded perspective she has on people, both in real estate and other issues.

On a personal level, Mrs. Montano is a person of integrity. She has a very strong work ethic and is known to go way beyond the call of duty in discharging her professional responsibilities for or with her clients. She is honest, sincere, and kind. She is a hard-worker, a good listener, a very religious person, who shares a pleasant smile.

I recommend this competent, hardworking real estate agent to you without hesitation."

“Great realtor who knows the business well. Michael went above and beyond of what is expected of him. I felt very fortunate to have him assist me with the home buying process. He follows through to end and is capable of answering all questions asked. I plan to use him and the Montano team for possible future housing investments. A job well done!"
C. Caverly, Retired Lawyer & J. Taylor, Teacher
Toronto, ON
“From the first interview with Claudine, we knew she was the realtor for us. She was so knowledgeable about the real estate market in Toronto, so professional in her approach, and so pleasant and enthusiastic in person that we stopped looking for anyone else. Her level of marketing initiative and client responsiveness was sky-high throughout, and even our friends were astonished at the detailed reports we received and the extensive market exposure Claudine created. In the end, we established a price record for our neighbourhood, in less than average time. What else can be said? Thank you Claudine!”

D. Daron, Engineer

“Before the Montano Group, our home was on the market for over 6 months with no success. Once we got the Montano Team on board our home was sold in less than 3 weeks! They really found a way of portraying the value of our property to the potential buyers. The key of our success was their determination, dedication, and most importantly their unique personal touch.”
Mike H. Director, Global eCommerce
“I was very pleased with my interaction with the Montano Group. They were a pleasure to work with, very thorough and meticulous in understanding my situation and made personalized recommendations across brokerage and legal services to help to simplify things for me. I ultimately sold through the Montano Group’s extensive network - on the other side of the country, and through their dedicated efforts - purchased the perfect home for me in downtown Toronto.”
Linda U. RBC Canada

Alicia N. Accountant
“My experience with the Montano Group was special in that they cared about what I wanted and spent time on what I needed. They knew and understood the procedures pertaining to foreign currency and made the transition a lot easier. As an out of town buyer, the Montano Group, was very careful in explaining to me the specifics and listened to every concern I had with the most detail. This led to her getting me exactly what I want. ”
