When we decided to buy a home in the GTA we were immediately overwhelmed by the prices, high demand for properties, and the entire home buying process.
From the first moment we sat down with Richard we immediately felt at ease. He is an extremely professional and patient realtor with an excellent knowledge of the GTA housing market that made the entire experience a joy.
Throughout the home buying process we felt like his only client, answering our calls at all hours of the day (and night), walking us through any concerns we had.
We thought buying a home would be incredibly stressful, but Richard provided an entirely stress-free and enjoyable environment. This allowed us to see dozens of houses in Toronto and Durham before finding our dream home.
From the first meeting until the closing date, it always felt like he was looking out for our best interests and that his primary goal was to find a place that would make us happiest. He also helped us save more than $30,000 on the final price of the home.
We would not hesitate to recommend him to friends or family. We can't thank you enough Richard!

As a first time home-buyer I didn't really know where to start, and that was when I came across Richard and his amazing website.
From the moment I first contacted Richard the whole process of buying a house was so straightforward and smooth. Richard is an amazing Realtor; through the whole experience he was committed to helping me understand the real estate market and process, and so amazing at working around my schedule and meeting places that were convenient and comfortable for me.
I explained to him my budget and what I wanted for my first house, and he found me my dream starter home! I could not be happier with the service he provided!
Richard was referred to us by a colleague who previously had a wonderful experience with him. After meeting with Richard, we realized very quickly that we were in good hands.
Richard gave us peace of mind by asking questions to identify our specific needs and responded by immediately showing us properties that met those needs.
We needed to find a place within a couple weeks and Richard went above and beyond to schedule multiple appointments and found us a home within 4 days!
I highly recommend Richard because of his attention to detail, sense of urgency and understanding his clients' needs. We could not be happier in our new home. We could not have done it without him.

Earlier this year I was evicted from my home as the building was scheduled to be demolished, so I started to do the math and that it simply did not make sense to rent again.
Richard Frankel was referred to me by a close friend of mine to help me find a new home. Richard has young blood but does things old school: we were able to select and place a successful bid on a condo in the Eatonville area of Toronto.
While many realtors are starting to do things completely digitally, Richard’s advice to deliver the bidding package in person at the selling realtor’s office was a large factor in helping win the bidding process. The careful balance of knowing which tactics to employ is paramount, especially in a market as competitive as in the Greater Toronto Area. On top of this, Richard is prompt, direct, and well organized; which are qualities that anyone looking to invest in real estate should rely on.

Having gone through several Realtors in the past, I expected this entire process to be a lot more of a headache. However, I was quickly and pleasantly surprised with Richard’s work ethic. Not only is Richard committed to his clients but he had great consideration of what I was looking for, making this experience personal, stress free, and most importantly, fun! I was so happy with how quick and easy it was to find a place. Seamless and smooth, no hiccups or bumps. I would definitely recommend Richard to anyone looking for top quality service and painless house/apartment hunting.
As a first time buyer, I was overwhelmed with where to begin. After contacting Richard, I immediately felt comfortable and at ease. Richard made the transition of renting to buying simple and easy, providing me with the information I needed, without losing focus of what I was looking for. Richard's friendly and personal demeanour made this process easy and enjoyable. I’ve never been happier with the service I received and couldn’t thank Richard enough for helping me find the perfect home!
Richard Frankel genuinely cares about finding his clients the absolute best home their money can buy.
My girlfriend and I recently called upon Richard to help us find a condominium in the High Park area that was roomy, well built, well maintained and well under the standard cost of a typical property in Toronto.
In just one outing, he found us an awesome place that met all our criteria and more! What sets Richard apart from other agents is his enthusiasm and work ethic. We were blown away by the level of research and leg work he put into what we thought was an impossible task and the results speak for themselves. Being first-time home buyers, we greatly appreciated how involved he insisted on being during the many complicated aspects of the sales process. He negotiated a great deal for us, walked us through all the legal procedures and stayed in constant contact until the keys were in our hands and the movers were on their way. The whole process could not have gone any smoother.
Thanks Richard. We’ll definitely be in touch when the time comes to move from our dream condo to our dream home!
My wife and I are highly impressed with the level of service we received from our realtor, Richard Frankel.
As first-time home buyers we were eager to find our perfect home but the process seemed intimidating. We are grateful to Richard as he was able to assess our needs and guide us every step of the way in a professional manner. He booked showings with extreme efficiency and was always honest and knowledgeable about the listings we saw. He responded promptly to any questions we had and negotiated tirelessly on our behalf. We truly were in capable hands and Richard made the experience fun and stress-free. We would strongly recommend his services to anyone!

Buying and selling property is probably one of, if not the most stressful undertakings we do in our lives.
I was indeed fortunate to connect with Richard Frankel who made the entire process comfortable and understandable.
There are always the concerns about finding a purchaser in time to accommodate the sale and new purchase. Additionally the staging process and generally understanding the whole complicated procedure.
From our first meeting it was evident that Richard was a true professional. Knowledgeable, calm, reassuring and above all trustworthy.
My experience was simply trouble and stress free having been well guided and looked after throughout the entire process
I would highly recommend Richard Frankel to anyone considering beginning this process.
Many sales agents don't understand the client and their needs, and work to close a sale. Richard however did his best to understand my interests, pain points and needs. He found me a condo I absolutely love and closed $10,000 under the listed price!
I highly recommend working with Mr. Frankel for his understanding of the market and quick responses.
Using Richard as my agent to find my first home was a great experience. He was very dedicated to finding a home that suited my needs but also wasn't pushy and was very patient. He always had my best interests in mind and was extremely dependable. I highly recommend using Richard for your real estate needs!
Through my process in getting a new built home, Richard was extremely helpful. Not only was he knowledgeable, but on the odd item he didn’t’ know he did research and got back to me right away!
As somebody who doesn’t own a car, Richard was great in actually coming to pick us up and taking us to see the different condos and sales centres. He was very patient with our picky needs and was a great negotiator! His professional and work ethic is unparalleled! Highly recommend Richard’s services!

Richard proved to be the best for us as my wife and I made plans to downsize from a house to a condominium. His professional, caring and thorough approach made us comfortable, knowing that all our concerns were being well looked after. Now that we are settled into a condominium we are even more happy with Richard's great effort on our behalf.
Richard is a wonderful real estate agent to collaborate and work with. He makes you feel like you are in complete control by making all that possible logistically on the back end no matter how challenging that may be. Once he gets a good feel for what you want, and that doesn't take too long, he's excellent in finding those properties based on the specs, look, feel, lifestyle you live, and future you envision.
His communication is strong, and he's very diligent about following up quickly with the information you need to make key decisions fast. My wife and I likely asked hundreds of questions throughout our experience with him, and all his responses made me feel confident that becoming a first time owner was a super investment opportunity and an effective way to improve our standard of living all at the same time.
We felt confident that Richard would secure a great value deal for us even after some challenging instances in the ultra competitive Toronto condo market. Richard is good at keeping your expectations in check while exceeding them when the time comes to look at a property and put together an offer. He's a great partner to have for such an important decision, and huge life milestone.
We fully endorse Richard, he's dedicated and focused on your happiness as a client, and won't stop working hard until a deal is successfully confirmed and the closing date happens.
Looking forward to celebrating with Richard soon, and receiving the keys directly from him instead of our lawyer like a typical closing works. Thanks again Richard, we look forward to buying and selling real estate with you in the years ahead!

Richard was extremely helpful both when I sold my home and when I was looking for a place to rent. He sold my home before it even went on the market, and found me a place to rent very quickly- I was picky about the building I wanted and he worked days, nights, and weekends to find me the right unit. He's a really hard working agent who cares about his clients.
Working with Richard was an outstanding experience. He was patient, and asked me the right questions to help me narrow down what I found important in a home. When he found me the best opportunity to buy, he negotiated the deal I wanted and stayed in touch throughout the closing process. Thanks for all your help!
