Brent Crawford | Broker
I've been selling real estate longer than I haven't been. As the saying goes, "If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life." I've been blessed with a 32-year career in something I absolutely love. I love the people, I love the houses, I love the individual experiences and I love helping my clients find that perfect place they can call 'home'. The experience I never want to give up? Doing the 'happy dance' with my clients after they've sold their house for more money than they ever thought possible!
In my 32 years, I've seen the best of times and the absolute worst. My experience helps me evaluate the current real estate market and the direction it's heading towards. Whether the market is on an upswing or falling into a recession, I help my clients make the best decision for THEM. This may mean waiting for the right time to sell or jumping on a great deal. Through good fortune and hard work, I've been able to consistently place among the top Realtors in the City of Toronto.
Most of my business comes from word of mouth and referrals from past clients. My motto is: "Treat others the way you would like to be treated. Its that simple"
I was born in Ottawa and moved to Toronto, where l graduated from Malvern Collegiate Institute. After high school, l started my own landscaping company. While completing a job for a client, I met their real estate agent. I loved what he said, the energy he possessed and the excitement he expressed about his career. I was hooked! By the age of 22, I was a real estate agent.
Real estate has also afforded me the time and the means to pursue my passion for music and acting. I've been a jazz musician and participant in the Beaches Jazz Festival for 10 years. My limited acting career has included appearances with Winona Ryder, Stuart Townsend, Stephen Baldwin, Callum Blue and others. What a blast!
I've also travelled extensively, which has made me tremendously grateful for this amazing city we live in.
