Helen Braithwraite - Sales Representative

There is no one size fits all approach when it comes to real estate…

Whether buying or selling, Helen’s personalized service to find the home that fits each individual client is a unique one.  Helen has a passion for design, architecture and all things contemporary, and that, combined with her experience supervising the construction and renovation of several homes, gives her an advantage in Toronto’s competitive real estate market. Helen knows how to listen to her clients’ needs and find the right match while providing valuable input on design ideas. Her aesthetic sense is also an asset when preparing a home for sale and maximizing its potential on the market.

Helen knows more than just design! Her prior career was in research at an investment firm and this enables her to bring a comprehensive knowledge of finance to help clients find the ideal home within their budget. Helen is also very skilled at researching properties and comparables to ensure an educated decision is made in every transaction.

In her spare time Helen can be found walking her two Golden Retrievers, running or cycling. She has competed in multiple triathlons, half marathons and a few full marathons. One of her favourite events is the Muskoka Rocks 10K which raises funds for Camp Oochigeas, a camp that provides an active, outdoor experience for children with cancer.

“Helen sold our home in 8 days for 119% of asking price — that alone speaks for itself! We cannot thank them enough for all of their help and diligence in marketing our home for sale. We truly believe the value added Helen provided led to an extremely successful sale. It was a pleasure doing business with them.”
