All good people on the team. Professional, personable and committed to their work. I worked very comfortably in tandem with my agent with excellent results. I highly recommend the Invidiata team!— Bryan P.
The Invidiata Team are world class in the A to Z process of real estate. I've yet to work with a team more professional, knowledgeable, patient, resourceful, and pleasant. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend them to anyone and I have been doing since I first started working with Shae Invidiata back in 2015— Raj G.
While in the process of finding a New Location for my spa in the heart of Yorkville - Infuse Med Spa. I couldn’t have thought of anyone else that had the expertise, experience, and vision capability as Shae Invidiata does. It was not only a spa location transformation but a new concept that I wanted to integrate. Shae, being a natural businesswoman, helped me make my new business come to life. She also held my hand while I was ready to give up and encouraged me to hang on... we will find the right place in the right time. It was her promise and strength that will forever be in my heart. Her vibe will and is resonating within the space always. Thank ...— Kavita S.
Shae Invidiata listed my home in February 2018. She was very professional and assisted me in preparing it to list with the help of a professional interior designer. 35 groups of people came through and it sold within a month. Shae was great to work with and has much patience!— Martha L.
The Invidiata Team - Carlos and Christina Clavero, Shae Invidiata and Christopher Invidiata - sold our home in Oakville, March 2019. Our family recommends them wholeheartedly and without equivocation Our team's dedication never waned through what many describe as one of the toughest real estate climates in recent memory. Our team never pressured us and continued to sponsor, advertise, and provide open houses with kindness, enthusiasm, and unparalleled professionalism. They always reminded us that while they were our real estate team, we were part of the team, too. In summary: Respectful, generous, strategic, hard-working real estate experts whose kn...— Holly M.
Shae was extremely responsive and helpful in guiding me through the process of buying my first house! She helped me find and get the perfect house for me, and made the experience easy and fun. Would highly recommend to anyone.— Hilary H.
Being from out of town I relied on Shae's expertise to buy and sell a property there. She didn't let me down, and took me under her wing from the start. Her experience in the field was obvious and welcomed; she both found exactly what I needed, and then eventually sold it for me for more than I was expecting. Shae is a real professional, and I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.— Harald B.
I received gorgeous flowers last week from The Invidiata Team for our one-year anniversary since we moved in & brought back beautiful memories of what a great pleasure it had been to work with Rimsha Ali on our purchase. She was very knowledgeable and extremely professional. Highly recommend Rimsha Ali and The Invidiata Team. Top-notch service!— Buyer
Shae was knowledgeable, easy to communicate with, and very thorough, all while negotiating with a tricky seller. Her strategy was excellent and made my first home buying experience a positive one. Thank you, Shae and the Invidiata team!— Jonathan R.
A Big thank you to Rimsha from Invidiata!!! Rimsha has been nothing but honest and helpful throughout the whole process. As a first time buyer I didn’t know much about the whole process but Rimsha took the time to answer and explain every question I had. She was fantastic and made us feel very comfortable in every step. Would highly recommend her and thank you once again.— Mike J.
Debbie and Rimsha were supportive knowledgeable, efficient and professional. It was a pleasure to have them working with us on the sale of our home. We couldn't be happier with the end result - sold in two days for over asking price!!— Scott C.
We highly recommend the team of Debbie Gonin-Braun and Rimsha Ali. These outstanding Invidiata team members guided us through the pre-listing preparation of our home, provided insight into the real estate market and pricing our property and did a fantastic job creating multiple offers. We sold our property in just three days, above the asking price. Debbie and Rimsha are not only professional but are a pleasure to work with!— Chris w.
We Sold our home in 3 days. We couldn’t have achieved this without Lorne Howell. His attention to detail is unbelievable and the photography, and video of our home was amazing. His knowledge of our area was outstanding. Lorne was always available for showing at anytime.— Mary S.
After helping us sell our first condo together, Debbie and Rimsha helped us find OUR FIRST HOME! It was a grueling process of looking for and losing many potential homes before landing on the place that was perfect for us. Rimsha and Debbie were with us every step of the way for the purchase, as well as afterwards, helping to ease us into our first home. They even provided a beautiful and thoughtful piece of art for new walls. They went above and beyond to make sure we were settled in and happy in our new home. By the time we moved in, it felt like Rimsha and Debbie were part of the family. They even got us a wedding gift on top of everything else!...— Lindsay F.
My wife and I were looking to purchase a condo in the city for our kids attending university. This was a property that would be sold after they graduated. We met Shae because she had a listing we wanted to view. After meeting her It was obvious she would become our realtor for good. Shae undersood what we were looking for and educated us on the city and what the market offered. Shae showed us many condo's,each she came prepared with information and comparable properties. No pressure sales tactics, only honest opinions. We are very grateful for all her help. We purchased a condo and 3 yrs later sold it through Shae again and received more than asking...— Carlo P.
The team of Debbie Gonin-Braun and Rimsha Ali were absolutely amazing and very helpful with selling my home in Grimsby. Debbie helped me sell in Oakville 9 years ago and I decided to go with her relaxed yet professional approach again. Rimsha and Debbie work very well together as a team and are there for all your needs/concerns in a very timely manner!— Nancy D.
We were extremely happy with our sales experience that Rimsha Ali and Debbie Gonin-Braun from the Invidiata Team provided. We appreciated their patience, guidance and honest opinions on preparing our home for sale and subsequent search for our new home. They jumped right in to give hands on help the night before go live! They presented to us a very thorough marketing evaluation, coupled with a complete sales strategy that resulted in the sale of our home within a week and a half of listing and sold for a price exceeding our expectations. We appreciated Debbie's direct approach to the negotiation; closing the deal effortlessly, and Rimsha’s committed...— Seller
Being a first time seller couldn't have gone any smoother and I owe it all the dynamic duo of Debbie and Rimsha of the Invidiata team! These two ladies made what could have been an incredibly stressful situation very easy. They went above and beyond expectations in terms of professionalism, dedication and genuine care. Thank you both so much for helping my fiance and I sell our condo (for over asking!) and in seemingly record breaking time! I can't imagine going through this process again without using this team!— Matt C.
Lorne was referred to us by a friend, and he was one of the best real estate agent we worked with. A very professional service, Lorne definitely knows what he is doing, a very experienced and confident agent that you can trust.— Talal K.
Our family bought a property through their service. The whole process was profound, lengthy and complex. Thanks to the team Ms. Rimsha and Debbie to walk us though in an efficient, professional way. I would highly recommend them because through the experience, I saw integrity, passion, hardworking, and professional. They would advise to add a layer of safety net for us even though it means more work for them. They provided support when there was a gap between the Seller and the Buyer to facilitate the further process. They visited even after the completion of transaction to make sure our questions and concerns were answered. Really great service. ...— Cindy H.
I had contacted Invidiata regarding a listing that I was interested and received a callback from an agent that was very quick with getting me to see the listing the next day. Rimsha Ali was the agent that met me for a showing and she was punctual and very professional for the first meeting. I put an offer in the next day and from there Rimsha was officially my agent and took the lead with helping me purchase my first home on my own. I was very anxious and nervous about the process but Rimsha reassured me every step of the way. I not only purchased a home.....I made a friend. I have dealt with many professionals over the years and I can confidently ...— Belinda C.
Rimsha is a very professional realtor and executes the whole deal clinically. Given the current situation of pandemic, I was not expecting my property to be leased out so quickly, whereas Rimsha was very confident about it since day 1, like she knew the pulse of real estate market. Also, I live outside Canada and was getting a little worried for the property maintenance and handover. Rimsha is someone who takes care of all your worries/interest and guides what is in the best interest of the clients. Really enjoyed working with her and would be glad to recommend her to my friends and family.— Naveed K.
Where to begin. Being first time home buyers in Canada we were a little intimidated at first. But we were absolutely lucky to find Lorne Howell from the Invidiata team who carried us through the process with great earnestness & efficiency. He helped us through problems related to the purchase which didn’t even fall within his domain as our realtor. We thank him for the time and effort spent in making our experience as easy as it was. We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor.— Sonia C.
We wanted to buy a house and did not know any reliable real estate agent in the area. We started searching online and short listed a couple of them. Rimsha Ali of Invidiate was one of them. We reluctantly contacted her. From the first phone call we felt comfortable. Over the period of next couple of months she worked with us in house searching. More we talked to Rimsha more we felt comfortable. I must say that I have dealt with many real estate agents in the past but never had the kind of service that we received from Rimsha. She is so prompt, attentive to details, always (and I mean always) available. She walked us through every step until the end....— Buyer
When the market is hot almost any real estate agent and brokerage will do. Whether the markets are hot or cold, Lorne Howell and Invidiata are a tier one team. They fulfilled their commitment to us. Lorne brought the knowledge and experience that gave us comfort. He has the skills and expertise behind him to do the job in what is often an anxious period of time. He quickly earned our trust and confidence, and became a valued advisor. Lorne is a consummate marketer and salesman. He was always available day and/or night. Attention to detail is in his DNA. On the sale of our home he crafted a strategy that properly positioned us against competing pr...— Yuri K.
If you are looking for the best realtor, choose Rimsha from The Invidiata Team! She was so friendly and honest from the beginning of this lengthy process. She helped me and my family find the perfect home that fit our specific needs. She was easy to contact and communicate with and did not rush us to find a house. I am very pleased with her service.— Huda M.
We were searching for a Realtor as we were not happy with the Realtors we were coming across. Suddenly, it hit me that I know Rimsha as a acquaintance and she's an agent. I think she was God-sent to help us out. A day after talking to her, we were so satisfied because she really made an effort to find the right house for us. She would show properties well in our budget and kept our top priority in her mind. She went an extra mile every single time so that our first house is the perfect house and for that we are forever grateful:). Thankyou Rimsha and your whole team. I guarantee you that you are the only person we will contact for our next purchase,...— Muneefah F.
I wanted to thank Shae and Rimsha for a recent sale in Oakville! I was the buyer agent and my clients were the successful purchasers of their listing. From the first visit through to closing, it was an absolute pleasure working with such professional, honest, and knowledgeable people. I'd especially like to thank Rimsha for making the entire transaction smooth and enjoyable! My clients are ecstatic about the house and very happy with my service but my job was made much more efficient by working with your team. Thank you, Shae, and a GIGANTIC thank you to Rimsha!— Arthur W.
I want to start out by giving 5 stars to Lorne Howell. He is a consummate professional who... not only says it but does it! We met Lorne a couple of years before we engaged him to sell our place. He took the time to get to know us, our priorities, and objectives, and then patiently kept us updated during this period. Once we were ready to proceed he was proactive with his advice and his attention to detail was exceptional. He is a good listener, prepared to share his advice but recognizes that the final decision is the client's. He was active and fully engaged in the process with an objective to have a sale within a week. He overdelivered on all ...— F. Ahmed
Lorne sold our house in Oakville in one day and we got the price we wanted as well, he is a very professional and experienced agent. If you need an agent to sell your house quickly then I will recommend Lorne anytime.— Carl S.
Once the decision was made to move to Oakville, my brother, a client of Lorne, referred Lorne and only Lorne and he was right. The first showing Lorne understood exactly what I was looking for and what matters to me. Lorne knew the potential of every listing I liked and would tell me if it works or not. What really made Lorne stand out is his passion for what he is doing and being around people; he has a cosmopolitan mind. He advocates for his clients interest. Lorne goes the extra step of following up after moving day. Looking forward to deal with Lorne again when I'm going to buy a house." Lorne and only Lorne".— Sahla A.
Rimsha is a 5-star agent she went above and beyond the call of duty in every respect I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a sincere, caring agent.— Myles M.
Rimsha Ali is absolutely wonderful to work with. She explained everything in a way that was easy to understand to us as a 1st time home buyer. Rimsha was professional and friendly. She never made us feel uncomfortable and helped us every step of the way! She was always available to answer our questions and to show us the requested home any time we asked for it. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home, you won’t regret it.— Ali M.
My fiancé and I had the pleasure of working with Lorne Howell on the purchase of our new home in Oakville. Lorne was a true professional in all respects and worked extremely hard to ensure we found the right home for us, not just any home. He was incredibly knowledgeable on the many different neighbourhoods within the broader Oakville area and carefully took us through the pros and cons of living in each one. We were impressed with his thorough approach to viewing a home, including his due diligence of its working order. We found Lorne to be patient and accommodating throughout the purchasing process but also willing to speak up and provide an exper...— Daryl Y.
My realtor, Lorne Howell, was very courteous, had a lot of patience, and really understood the necessary details to make my selling experience Awesome! He took the time to explain things to me clearly - from the floor plan measuring to the great photography and video, it all came together smoothly. Thanks, Lorne to you and the Invidiata team for all your hard work!— Angela C.
We have had the pleasure of working with Lorne Howell on 6 residential buying and selling transactions in the past 30 months. Backed by the incredible resources of The Invidiata Team, combined with his experience, skill, knowledge, and impeccable reputation, we could enter the market with extreme confidence. Lorne was careful and deliberate to make sure our goals were always aligned. When selling, he would proactively share the analytics as to how our home was trending online and continuously keep us apprised if the most current market data. We were always well informed, no matter what side of the transaction we were on. It is amazing what a diff...— Jeffery C.
Lorne is a great reliable agent! He has an awesome understanding of the market and he immediately developed a plan and we put it into action. In less than a week of our house being listed, Lorne worked his magic to score an offer! Just absolutely outstanding! He is a great listener and communicator, he’s punctual and knowledgeable. It was a pleasure to deal with the Invidiata Team and we will definitely use their services in the future! If you want proficient expertise and quick results, I would highly advise and recommend you partner with Lorne. Thanks again, Lorne.!— Tarek T.
Lorne Howell lives up to the term "professional". It is clear right out of the gate that Lorne leverages his experience to help customer make informed decisions. What I liked most about dealing with him is the way he adapts to our ways of doing things. I feel the more we do our homework, the better serviced we would be. Lorne played up to that very very well. He was extremely patient, always gave his opinion without being intrusive. He spent all the time needed to get the task done from start all the way to closing. He made our experience that much better in what is normally believed to be a daunting task of choosing a home. Very empathetic and acco...— Rocky A.
Promt professional service is exactly what we received from Lorne and the Invidiata Team. His 30+ years of experience in real estate became evident from our first meeting. Lorne's attention to detail is remarkable, his in depth knowledge of the market, along with his calm yet confident manner, allowed us to maximize our profits in the sale of our home. By creating a solid rapport, Lorne gained our trust, as well as potential buyers, and executed a firm deal in a matter of days! To ensure a flawless transaction, call Lorne and his team to expedite the process in the most profitable way possible.— Jason & Theresa D.
Lorne Howell was referred to us by a friend who also used him to sell her home and he lived up to our expectations for the sale of our house. We can’t speak highly enough of our experience with Lorne and Invidiata team. He brought in a staging expert that helped us with the house making it "show worthy” and their photographer took amazing photos & video for the web listing. Lorne is a professional who is very knowledgable, dedicated to his clients and his attention to detail is unprecedented. He responded quickly to our every question, and inquiry. He provided invaluable advice and guidance throughout the process. We highly recommend Lorne and Inv...— Nayna P.
Working with Lorne has been a real pleasure. Although we were listed with another agent previously and reasonably pleased, Lorne added a different caliber of professionalism. He gave us a detailed and compelling analysis of what he thought our property was worth. He went through our property and suggested how to eliminate some eyesores. He is punctual, courteous , follows up and is a pleasure to work with. Couldn’t recommend him more.— Eva K.
Working with Lorne Howell from the Invidiata Team was a true delight in every possible manner. His experience in the business was evident from the moment we began negotiations on a listing of mine for his buyers. Lorne handled the transaction swiftly and with grace. A true gentleman at heart and a highly knowledgeable Realtor. Many agents can learn from Lorne’s expertise in the real estate industry. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you Lorne!— Shen W.
The Invidiata Team are a group of professionals who provide service excellence and truly care about their customers needs and wants. The entire sales purpose agreement was completed even beyond our expectations and we would recommend them to anyone that wants to seek a real estate professional to represent them. Marija is our direct contact and she represented the team very well. Thanks, again to Team Invidiata!— Anthony N.
We really enjoyed working with Lorne. Our house had been listed with another agent, from another company, for four months and our had not sold. Since we had already moved (out of the country) we were in a bit of a panic. Friends recommended Lorne who had just sold their home in under a week (their home had also been listed with a different company originally and sat on the market for some time). Lorne sold our home in one week. He is wonderful to work. He is responsive, easy to communicate with and he is an excellent negotiator. He attended every viewing and engaged with the buyers in a very positive way. He priced our home accurately so there was a...— Beth L.
It’s great to have made a second deal with Mr. Lorne Howell. I can always learn something from Lorne, his rich experience, his professionalism, and his high integrity..— Bob W.
