I have practiced Real Estate in the Toronto Core with great success for 42 years. While I am proud to be a consistent award winner at Chestnut Park (Chairman’s Award, Vice-Chairman’s Award), the true mark of success comes from my repeat and referral business. I feel fortunate to work with exceptional clients whom I am proud to represent.
When I began my career in 1975, there were no pagers, fax machines or cell phones. The internet had not yet been invented. I have enjoyed adapting to the changes these technological advances brought to the real estate industry. There is one thing that has not changed over the years:
The importance of putting the interests of my clients first.
While this seems simple enough, the reality is that every action I take when selling real estate must be congruent with and focussed on this imperative.
Toronto Real Estate has always been a part of my life. While living in the city that I love, I was exposed to the real estate industry at a very young age. With two parents who worked as business partners in the Toronto Real Estate market for more than 30 years, I feel very fortunate to have grown up in an industry that I am passionate about and to have learned from such capable and experienced mentors.
Prior to officially starting my career in real estate, I worked in a sales capacity in Media and Entertainment for many years. After completing my MBA, I worked in product management within the CPG industry. My years in the corporate world provided me with vast experience in sales and marketing while enabling me to hone my negotiation skills used in achieving desired outcomes for my clients. This experience enhances my ability to provide exceptional client service. It is an honour to continue my family’s legacy in helping our valued clients achieve their real estate goals.
I purchased a condominium in 2017 during challenging times as a buyer and used Peter and Catherine Russell as my real estate agents. I was very happy with my choice and their level of service.They were very pleasant to work with and helpful throughout the process. They provided good insights into market conditions and all the other factors which made my decision making much easier.I would recommend them without hesitation.- N. Stein
Peter is the most professional real estate agent we have ever met. He is also a gentleman, and a pleasure to be with. Peter's depth of experience and advice were invaluable in our search for a home. He always had our best interests in mind, and knowing he was in our corner was needed reassurance in an extremely challenging market for a buyer.- J. McCourt and J. Crnokrak
Peter demonstrated the ‘uncanny’ ability of being able to understand exactly our wants (and needs), and has patiently helped us through buying, selling and renting! He found us our first house 20 years ago and helped us sell it in August. He did an excellent job of marketing the house and it sold on the offer date . . . above asking! He then extended his services to find us the perfect rental – right location, right property, right price.
Many thanks to Peter and his team of professionals.
Catherine is such a pleasure to work with. She makes what would otherwise be a daunting experience of finding a home totally enjoyable and fun. She helped us navigate through some complicated challenges with our contract and always had our best interest at heart. She drops everything to answer questions and help you because she genuinely enjoys what she does. It's like working with a close and trusted friend :) Thank you for everything!!- E. Graca
Peter Russell quarterbacked the sale of my last two homes including recently, my Yorkville condominium.
As the widower of a long time realtor professing to be semi-knowledgeable of the real estate market, I confess to being a classic “difficult client”.
Peter finessed me beautifully with his typical grace, humour and his usual straight-forward, no B.S. manner. He sold my condo setting a building record in the process and I could not be happier.
Peter delivers 100% - 100% of the time!
For over twenty years, Peter has helped me purchase/sell three houses in a variety of areas in Toronto. In addition, Peter sold my mother’s house, and helped her purchase a condo, and as recently as a month ago sold her condo. In every instance he has gone “the extra mile”, been kind, helpful, astute, done his research up-front, been savvy re: timing, and been a good negotiator. We will continue to use and recommend Peter as a realtor.- M. Ginsler and E. Ginsler
Peter Russell is the consummate professional. He is knowledgeable about the current real estate market, has many years of experience to draw upon, and most importantly has integrity in his dealings with clients. We trusted Peter’s opinion when it came to making an offer on our new condo because we knew he had our best interests at heart. If ever we decided to sell our new home and move into another one, we’d want to work with Peter again.- T. Goldstein and M. Huycke
