Meet Halina Bucchino

Why do I love my job?

Building relationships with people is the most rewarding part of the job. Every client’s needs and desires are so unique and aiding them in achieving those is so satisfying.

What do I like best about the Toronto Real Estate Market?

I really enjoy the pace. Its a very exciting time to be in this business and the Toronto market is so diverse and dynamic.

What neighbourhood do I live in? What makes it groovy?

Riverdale: Access to everything I need. I swear, if I wasn’t a Realtor I wouldn’t need a car!

When I’m not working, you can find me…

At home, enjoying a glass of wine while preparing a meal for my friends and family

What kind of clients do I work with!?!?

As a real estate investor, I naturally find myself working with like-minded people. I also work with lots of first-time buyers. What appeals to me most about this process is the educational component and ensuring that my clients feel confident and well informed every step of the way.

What neighbourhoods do I primarily work in?

I work where it makes sense to work. Predominantly in the downtown core but have been known to travel outside of the GTA to find a great investment property.

What types of properties do I love to sell?

I love properties that a buyer can personalize to suit their needs. Whether it be a builder purchasing for land value, a first-time buyer who can convert the basement into an income producing suite to help pay the mortgage, or a seasoned buyer looking for the perfect floorplan to build their dream kitchen.

Why should you hire me to guide you in buying a property?

I have personally purchased numerous properties and so I know intimately, from experience, the many challenges that a buyer can face. I am extremely empathetic and always put my client’s needs first and foremost. I am not pushy and will take as much time as a client needs to be comfortable with their purchasing decision.

Why should you hire me to sell your home?

When you hire me you are hiring the entire BREL Team to sell your home. Service, passion, seamless systems, and pure professional power.

Selling your home is always stressful Selling your home at the beginning of a pandemic? Crazy. Halina made the whole process seamless. She was there for me every step of the way. She was patient with me and managed my stress levels, was calm, professional, helpful, responsive, kind, and had an amazing marketing plan. My house sold the day it hit the market. I met with other brokers before Halina. No one else gave me the comfort that I had with her. Everyone else was just get in, put up the sign, sell it and move on to the next one. There was nothing cookie-cutter about Halina. She took the time to understand my needs and accommodate my unique situation.

Thank you Halina and thank you BREL team!”

Halina represented us in the sale of a property in March 2020. We met with a number of agents before making a decision, and Halina stood out right away due to her very prepared plan for our listing. Halina and the entire BREL team have a comprehensive structure for their business that leaves nothing to chance. Everyone we worked with at the BREL Team was very knowledgeable, professional, had excellent attention to detail, and always kept us well informed of next steps. Halina told us that they treat all their clients equally – whether they have a studio apartment or a 10 million dollar home to sell. We couldn’t agree more. We felt like we were their only client. We highly recommend the BREL team!

Finding a condo that we could love was a daunting proposition after selling the beautiful house we lived in for 25 years. Good thing we hired Halina Bucchino and Kristin Shensel, who turned out to be an awesome team. Some agents are glorified tour guides. Not these two. They are absolute professionals who guided us through the search and buying process with unerring skill. When we found the property we wanted (a beautiful loft with 12-foot ceilings) Halina and Kristin did an in-depth analysis of its value, and spearheaded a highly effective negotiation that landed our loft for a price that worked. These two know the market, and they use data analysis with rare skill – they created sophisticated spreadsheets that analyzed previous sales in the building over a period of several years. They are also extremely nice people, with a human touch and a great sense of humour.  It’s been seven months since we bought our loft, and Kristin and Halina still stay in touch with us. We recommend them highly.
