“I interviewed a few realtors when I was thinking about selling my penthouse before I chose Claudine.    She was the most credible, prepared agent and understood the penthouse market better than anyone, and had a solid marketing plan.  Her team of painters, stagers, assistants and staff helped get our penthouse ready and exposed properly that the property was featured in a full page in the Globe and Mail. With multiple offers of 3, I got 97% of my list price and a record breaking sale for the building and St. Lawrence Market area. As the President of my company, I run a business and appreciate the way Claudine the Penthouse Queen runs hers! An exceptional job well done!”

“I confirm that Claudine Montano and her team executed the sale of our Unit in The Ritz. We were very pleased with the job she and the team did from developing the pricing and marketing strategy to the staging, contract negotiation and closing. They were knowledgeable, professional and kept us informed on a timely basis throughout.

As well Claudine’s knowledge of the Ritz Residence and experience working with the Ritz Services Team ensure the process ran smoothly without disruption to the staff or other residents.”

“I listed my property with the Penthouse Queen in not the most ideal time in the market and she delivered with flying colours! She sold my Penthouse in record time and set a record sale of over $100/ft from any sales in the building. Ecstatic with her work!.”

Mike H., Executive Digital Marketer

“This is the second property I have sold and third property purchased with Claudine, and her team. COVID certainly brought about some new challenges and stresses but Claudine and her team have done a great job updating us and providing us with their professional experience throughout the process. I would absolutely recommend anyone to use Claudine’s services.”

Adrian F., Associate Manager, Operations, Teranet

“Claudine and team have been wonderful to work with and have helped us sell our condo at the Ritz and our pre-construction assignment. We called Claudine because of her extensive market knowledge, condo expertise and network of qualified buyers. She was extremely prepared with insights on our building that other agents did not have and she gave us the confidence she would deliver results. Claudine paid special attention to every detail and was able to sell both properties off-market for top dollar. We would highly recommend Claudine for any of your luxury real estate needs.”

“We highly recommend Claudine. She was very professional, personable, knew the market well, did great promo ahead of time, and brought as many buyers as she could under the circumstances brought about by COVID. She was very well-connected with other agents in the luxury condo market. The video and photos were very well done and we think these materials were instrumental in selling our condo. She advises the seller on all aspects but is not pushy when it comes to what she thinks might be the best option. She also provided great updates and communicated well during the whole process.”

Chris C., Partner, PwC Canada (Retired), and Gerry C., City Planner (Retired)

“From the first interview with Claudine, we knew she was the realtor for us. She was so knowledgeable about the penthouse 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 by the detailed reports we received and the extensive market exposure Claudine created. In the end, we established a record price for our neighborhood, in less than average time. What else can be said? Thank you Claudine you are truly The Penthouse Queen!”
