What our clients have to sayBelow are some of my Client Testimonials

"Many people take a dim view of the real estate agent model. i.e. do I really need one? how hard is it anyway? it's just a straightforward transaction, right? the listings are all online so do I really need one? Much of this thinking emanates from a combination of ignorance and/or bad experiences that offers some justification. Working with Jonathan and his team at Revolution though will disabuse you of this notion pretty quick, particular in a crazy housing market like central Toronto where every event has plenty of hidden subtext. From getting is into see properties before they were listed and detailed neighbourhood analysis through to psychological profiles of the bargaining actors and the nuances of housing infrastructure, Jonathan may be a mile wide but he's got the depth you need to inform a 360 view of a transaction. Municipal bylaws, real estate law, tax, vendor selection, schools...all factor into the price and negotiation which is a speciality in itself. When you are making what may be the biggest purchase of your life, you don't want to do it by the seat of your pants. Jonathan I was relieved to learn first hand has you covered in ways you may not even conceive for there are many variables to consider. By the time it was all said and done and we had closed on our house in a multi bidder situation (after having seen at least a dozen other properties we deliberated over), I could see that if we ran the counterfactuals we wouldn't have pulled it off without Jonathan's involvement. I can't imagine buying a house without Jonathan's help and can't recommend him highly enough."

"My wife and I engaged the services of Jonathan at Revolution Realty to both sell our existing property and purchase our new family home. Jon is a consummate professional with a wealth of knowledge and expertise who helped us along every step of the way from listing to closing. He was always available to offer thoughtful advice. Jon above and beyond our expectations of what a realtor can offer, and we wouldn't hesitate to enlist his services again or recommend him to our friends and family."

I've had the pleasure of knowing Jon for years and when the time came to sell my mother's home I knew there would only be one person I trusted with the transaction. He was great right from the start, listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions as they came up regardless what time of day it was. He was understanding of the sensitive nature of the sale, and made certain that everything stayed on track without being overly aggressive or pushy. I'm happy to say he was able to bring the deal over the finish line and to a result that my mom was over the moon about. I honestly cannot say enough good things about him, and am looking forward to working with him again for our next properties.

What an honour to recommend Jonathan and his team. Every step of the way, Jonathan went the extra mile. From convenience in scheduling, to taking initiative and thinking of absolutely everything, Jonathan goes above and beyond. His experience and honesty were so appreciated in navigating the complex and bustling Toronto market. There are very few people with his experience who are so approachable and knowledgeable, in recognizing subtleties of what to look out for in a place, how to analyze value and how best to negotiate. I hope to stick with Jonathan for all my real estate needs!

"I can't speak highly enough of my experience with Jonathan, he proved to be very knowledgeable and professional in his field. We were very impressed with his diligence and devotion to us as our real estate agent in renting our apartment without our presence. He never left any of my questions unanswered, explained and walked me through all documents that I needed to sign (to make informed decision). We couldn't have asked for a better realtor and for sure we are going to use his services again in the future. We definitely recommend Jonathan to our friends and family without any hesitation."

Jonathan succeeded in selling my condo within days of our first meeting! He did thorough research to suggest a selling price, approached the right people and sealed the deal smoothly. I give him my highest recommendation!
By: Han & Keegan, Surgeons, Toronto
We feel extremely fortunate to have found Jonathan to help us with our condo search. As two first-time home-owners working odd hours, we were apprehensive of how much time and effort it would take to find the right condo. Not only was Jonathan able to carefully screen his search to meet our needs and budget, he also arranged viewings and signings around our schedule. Jonathan was always extremely prompt and responsive with all forms of communication, whether you use email or text. He turned our apprehension into excitement. Jonathan is well connected and was able to solve all our housing needs, introducing us to mortgage brokers, real estate lawyers, home insurance vendors, and moving aides. We are also very appreciative of Jonathan's willingness and ability to be our advocate. He volunteered his own time to help us with our previous lease and advised us wisely with regards to purchases for our condo. Having Jonathan as our real estate agent meant that we could always rest assured that a professional had our best interests at heart. We are incredibly happy with our new home and hope that all first-time home-buyers would be lucky enough to connect with Jonathan to help navigate the tricky housing market.

"I couldn’t be happier with the new loft I recently purchased in downtown Toronto. Coming from another city with limited knowledge of the market, Jonathan went above and beyond to educate me on important buyer fundamentals and to identify my priorities which he used to customize his services. He has the latest technologies to communicate listings and has a variety of personal touches that make the buyer experience enjoyable. His attention to detail, knowledge of the market, personable nature, reliability and ability to deliver exceeded all expectations.
I appreciated the way Jonathan would walk through the pricing of offers with me to maximize the value of my purchase and to prevent me from overpaying in such a tough market. There were multiple examples where he put my interests above his own, but in doing so he gained my trust and future business.
I highly recommend his services and look forward to sending family, friends, and colleagues his way knowing they will be taken care of."

“I had an incredibly positive experience working with Jonathan. From day 1, he took the time to understand who I am and what I was looking for, and he went above and beyond throughout every stage of the process. His advice made it clear that he had my best interest at heart. He found me the perfect place to buy, and while we had to move quickly, it all felt very simple and low stress because of his experience and systems. When it came time to sell my place, it was gone for 110% of asking in 3 days after multiple offers. He is dedicated, professional, trustworthy, easy to relate to, and gives 100% effort to his clients. There is no question that I will use his services in the future, and I will always recommend him to friends and family.”

"I first started working with Jonathan over five years ago when I purchased a pre-construction investment condominium. He has since helped me purchase another condominium as well as find a tenant for the investment property. He has a very thorough knowledge of the market and will give honest and frank advice that puts my interests ahead of his own. Jonathan clearly sees a client as a long-term investment and has earned my trust. I recommend Jonathan to anyone looking for a high-quality real estate advisor"

“Jonathan was an amazing agent to work with. He listened to our must-haves and used his knowledge of the market to search out places that would fit our needs. When things were looking grim, he went above and beyond to find us our perfect house. Even with our very specific requirements and the ever-rising prices of homes in Toronto, he was able to negotiate a budget-friendly price on the perfect house for us. We would work with him again in a heartbeat and would recommend him to anyone looking for an agent.”
By: Robin C., Restaurant Manager, Toronto
“Jonathan has been extremely knowledgeable and helpful with my first condo purchase. He was very patient and helpful with explaining terms that I was unaccustomed with. He was professional and courteous while making me feel at ease while going though this process. I would recommend him and will use him again when the time comes to sell!”

“Mr. Schwarz, This letter is sent to you in appreciation for your help and guidance during the successful purchase of my first home. Your professional manner and expertise have not gone unnoticed. As this was my first time purchasing a property, my needs were perhaps greater than most. You were able to answer all my questions and make me feel at ease during each stage of the purchase. You even managed to get my offer accepted in a competitive situation with higher bids! Are you a wizard?? Thank you for your hard work, dedication and guidance throughout the entire process. I am pleased to recommend you without hesitation.”

“I had an extremely positive experience with Jonathan and his team at Revolution Realty. Professional, attentive, available and helpful, Jonathan navigated me through the sale of my downtown condo from staging, listing, showing and all of the necessary paperwork. My condo was sold after less than 24 hours on the market for a great price that exceeded my expectations!! I would recommend Revolution Realty without hesitation and know that when it’s time for my next real estate deal Jonathan will be there for me!”

“While many brokers fish for clients on Craigslist, Jon generates his business from referrals – it shows. As newcomers to the city, Jon’s expertise was essential to helping us navigate what can be an intimidating housing market. Through choice questions and responding to our feedback, Jon was quickly able to identify a long list of options that matched our wants and needs. He drove us to our viewings, shared his vast knowledge of the neighbourhoods, and helped us understand what we should be looking for. Most importantly, Jon went far above and beyond simply finding us a lease – he found us a home.”

Hi, just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited!
