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 first time home buyers, the entire process of finding and purchasing a home was extremely nerve-wracking, until we started working with Roman! Roman was there every step of the way to ease our nerves and answer all of our questions.

From day one Roman was quick to match us with places that met our needs and requests, set up showings, and give us amazing insights on the houses we were interested in. We were so impressed the speed and quality of service that we received from start to finish.

Once we found "the one" Roman made the process an absolute dream. He handled the entire home buying process with such ease and took the stress off of our shoulders.

We are now all moved into our new home and are so thankful that we had an amazing realtor like Roman to help us out!

I would definitely recommend Roman for all your real estate needs.

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!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Roman to find a place. It was an absolute pleasure. From our initial conversations and throughout the whole process Roman was professional, and committed and demonstrated immense patience and understanding. Anyone looking for great service I would recommend Roman Spada.

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.

Thanks Richard!

Roman is professional, dedicated and very patient.

He provides all the information to help you make an informed decision and displays a wonderful attention to detail. I highly recommend Roman for all your Real Estate needs!

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.


William Kyle Smith



I really enjoyed working with Roman. He made the whole process very simple. He helped me out to find the new place within 9 days.

Responding about any queries quickly and double checking everything so that the place is good for the client is the best quality that I must highlight.

Highly recommend!!

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.


Charlene Nulman



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!


Maxim Miller



My experience with Roman Spada during the leasing process was nothing short of exceptional. He demonstrated not only a thorough understanding of the market but also a deep commitment to my specific needs.

What really sets Roman apart is his willingness to go above and beyond in every aspect of his service. He made a compelling case for us that clearly reflected our best interests, and this was a testament to his exceptional advocacy skills. He was not just our real estate agent, but our partner in this process.

His responsiveness was truly impressive. No matter the time or the day, he was always available to answer questions and provide insight. It felt like having a personal guide through the complex world of real estate.

But beyond his professional expertise, what really stood out was Roman's genuine character. He's not just good at what he does; he is a truly great guy, warm, friendly, and personable. His dedication to his clients is palpable, and it makes the entire leasing process a lot less stressful.

I cannot recommend Roman Spada highly enough. If you're looking for a real estate agent who is professional, knowledgeable, and genuinely cares about your needs, look no further. I guarantee you won't be disappointed. Roman, thank you for making our leasing process smooth and successful!

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!


Jonathan Stephen & Catherine Parker



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.

 Robin Rhodes


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.


Rishon Talkar



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!

 Joshua Stitt


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!


Shane Slater & Jessica Abramovitz



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.

 Stephen Hamburger



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!


Stacy Dann & Jeremy Campbell



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.


Alexandra Krystal




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!

I contacted different real estate agents before Richard. One of them helped us get mortgage pre-approved, but couldn't provide a pre-approval letter when I requested a paper copy.
Then one morning I came across Richard’s website www.DurhamRegionPropertySearch.com. I saw the testimonials and decided to sign up. As a first time home-buyer, there’s a lot information to digest. We told him our story. From that moment of our telephone conversation we knew we found our agent. Richard is straightforward, transparent and honest. He guided us through the home buying process.
After that he introduced us to one of his mortgage agents (Alex Zelenov, from Centum he is an amazing person with lots of information, great with numbers too) to do another pre-approval application for us.
Richard is an amazing Realtor through the whole experience. He is really committed to helping us understand the real estate market and how it works. Lots of insights. Frankly, he educated us being first time home buyers. He works around our schedule during the day and even during weekends. Very patient, I even called him up at lunch time and he did not complain. One time I called him up while he was walking his dog. He responded to my text inquiries even after office hours. He is very accommodating and with a great sense of humor, very pleasant to talk to. You can talk to him not only as a real state agent but a friend. I can tell he has vast experience in the real estate market.
During the home visits: He has a pleasant and very knowledgeable colleagues (Carolina Izurieta and Whitney Collins) touring us around the Durham area for potential homes. We almost gave up looking for homes in Durham due to high demand for homes, few sellers, some homes I feel were overpriced, plus sellers engaging bidding wars by underpricing their homes to invite buyers. Unbelievable! More than 20 bidders for just a single house sometimes! We were also caught in the middle of a changing and volatile mortgage rules and regulations due to COVID-19.
Richard advised us on timing and did everything, until finally we found our new home.
Closing transaction experience: he introduced and connected us to his other team members:
- Home Inspector: Tommy De Acetis from the Superior Home Inspectors.
- Real estate lawyer: George Azan
- Home and car insurance, Kelly Kacor from AllState.
The whole family could not be happier with the service provided! Highly, highly recommended!"

My husband and I want to take this opportunity and thank Richard for his hard work in getting us our "dream home."

Richard worked tirelessly from the get-go and consistently went above and beyond the call of duty throughout our search for the perfect house.

Richard's exemplary and astute manner in the Real Estate business is well appreciated. He spent time educating us and kept us abreast of upcoming houses for sale, even on his days off. Also, we were astounded at Richard's positive energy throughout the entire process.

We will rate Richard's performance on a scale of one to ten, an eleven. We will recommend Richard to anyone who is buying or selling a house today.

Thanks again, Richard.

As a first time homebuyer, I didn't know where to start with my condo hunt in downtown Toronto. I had a vague idea of what I was looking for, but Richard helped me piece together a clear picture through his advice and our discussions on units we visited. He was always ready and willing to point out flaws or issues with units that I otherwise wouldn't have been aware of and his guidance was critical in my journey. If he weren't in real estate, he should definitely consider a job in teaching!
Richard was always patient and ready to listen to my ever-changing criteria (sorry!) as I learned more about my preferences and the condo market in general. He was available when I needed his input and was fantastic in logistical planning and coordinating the entire transaction from start to finish. His recommendations for a mortgage broker, real estate lawyer, and insurance agent were stellar and the process went smoothly.
During times of anxiety and discouragement, like when my first offer fell through due to unrealistic expectations on the seller's part during the COVID condo market dip, he helped keep me on track and recover from the disappointment until we found a much better unit that I purchased for under market value. When the appraisal required by the lender came back with an evaluation $40,000 higher than what I paid for the unit, I was ecstatic. Richard's negotiating skills were excellent and I had no doubt in my mind that we were getting the best deal possible.
I'm preparing to move in as I write this and it's still difficult to believe that after our short time working together we found an amazing unit that hit all my checkboxes. I will recommend Richard to friends and family and I am forever grateful for his help!

We didn’t know what a labyrinth of a housing market we were jumping into when we decided to move to Canada from Europe.
Looking for an apartment in Toronto is hard enough, but trying to do it from abroad is nearly impossible. Richard held our hand through the process and found us a place before we even landed.
He walked us through apartments via video calls and advised us about different neighborhoods and housing norms in what was a foreign market to us.
He was always very kind and personal. He made us feel welcome to a new country. I’d highly recommend him to anyone immigrating to Toronto from abroad.
Ian Fisher & Emilia Bruck

Thank you so much for helping us lease our condo.


You made the process simple and easy to understand for us, and we appreciated your patience and expertise. Your insight was extremely valuable to us and I don’t think we could have done this without you.


 If any of our friends or family are ever in need of an agent, we will be sure to send them your way.
