Why do I love my job?
I am obsessed with houses – I always have been. Helping people find the right one for them never gets old.
What do I like best about the Toronto real estate market?
I love the predictable unpredictability. It keeps me on my toes, but I wouldn’t choose to live or work anywhere else.
What neighbourhood do I live in? What makes it groovy?
The Beach – Love the houses. Love the vibe. Love the people. It’s always been home for me.
When I’m not working, you can find me….
Hanging out with my daughter, running on the beach or cooking!!!
The kind of clients I tend to work with…
I generally work with clients who need a REALTOR and a hand to hold. I’m not sure how that happened… maybe for my next career I will be a therapist (ha)!
What neighbourhoods do I often work in?
I’m most often working to find people homes, or sell homes, in: Scarborough, East York, the Beach, the Upper Beach, and the downtown core of ‘the six’.
What type of properties do I love selling?
I love selling the kinds of houses I’d love to buy. I look for character, good bones, and homes that look like they could tell a good story.
Why am I the right agent to guide you in buying a new home?
I’m the right agent for you, if you want someone who cares about finding the perfect home for you. I’m going to make sure you don’t just buy ‘a house’ – but that you buy YOUR house. And I’m pretty good at telling the difference.
Why am I the right agent to sell your home with!?
Probably because I get that selling a house also means leaving a home. I’m there to help with all the joyful and messy details involved in selling a home (for top dollar). Having been through the process, I understand that this isn’t just a transaction for you and I’m here to help make the transition as seamless as possible.
As a first time home buyer, I was nervous about the process, but Kristin was always patient with me and made me feel very comfortable asking questions. Kristin was extremely knowledgeable about the buildings I was interested in buying a condo in. She also taught me what to look for in a unit, and she was always realistic with me when it came to finding something within my budget. She was able to get me the home that I was dreaming about, in my desired location ! Kristin, you have a lifelong client (and friend) in me !
I worked with Kristin Shensel during a very difficult transition time for myself, my two little girls and my dog. We were on a real-time crunch, I needed a home close to my children’s school and one that would suit my beloved pet. Kristin would not let me buy just any home and even though I would have put an offer on other houses she stood her ground. She wanted the perfect house for me. She found my dream home and made close happen within 3 weeks. I am grateful every day for my new space and Kristin’s dedication. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. She will get it done with heart.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Kristin Shensel to sell my investment property. Kristen and her team took care of every detail. she was always a text or phone call away. Kristen handled a very difficult tenant at my property with professionalism and grace. I would recommend Kristen to anyone looking to sell or buy. She puts her heart and soul into your clients.
