Why do I love my job?
After buying my own properties, I quickly realized that I could no longer spend another day working in a cubicle.
The result of this realization is that I get to do what I am so passionate about – everyday.
When working with clients I approach it as if I’m buying the property for myself.
I bring years of experience in this industry…to you. My job (if you want to call it a job) is something I feel fortunate to do.
What do I like best about the Toronto Real Estate Market?
Toronto is a world-class city that has it all! Whether the dollar goes down, or interest rates climb, people will always consider the Toronto Real Estate market a safe-haven for investment and an ideal place to live. I love chasing a new deal and helping people to find what they’re looking for.
What neighbourhood do I live in? What makes it groovy?
As a homeowner, I have lived all across the city of Toronto, from the east side (Queen and Broadview) to the west side (College and Clinton) and even up north (Bayview and Highway 7) when my wife and I started our life together.
Now, with our two kids, my family calls St. Clair West home. I can honestly say that we can no longer see ourselves living anywhere else.
The welcoming atmosphere, local amenities, sprawling green space, nearby schools, and family-friendly atmosphere, make St.Clair West the perfect place for us.
When I’m not working, you can find me….
spending time with my wife and kids! You might also see me driving my motorcycle…it’s one of my favourite things to do.
The kind of clients I tend to work with!?!?
Well, basically I just love working with anyone that has an interest in buying or selling real estate! However, for the sake of answering this question, I do really enjoy working with investors, non-resident buyers, and commercial buyers and sellers.
What neighbourhoods do I often work in?
I’m not specific to any one neighbourhood, but commercial mixed use properties tend to be off a main artery across Toronto.
What type of properties do I love selling?
I love working with clients looking to invest where there is a commercial store front with some apartments above, residential duplexes, triplexes, or multi-unit properties. I am a big advocate for income properties. I love to see clients earn off their investment in real estate or live mortgage free as landlords!
Why am I the right Real Estate Agent for you?
Well, that’s the million dollar question.
I could tell you about how I’m the best agent in Toronto, or how many properties I have bought and sold this year. I could go on… and on… about what makes me stand out amongst the other thousands of realtors in the city.
But the real answer is more about where I have chosen to work as a full time agent and what you’re getting when you hire me to help you buy, or sell, your property: the BREL Team.This is what makes me a successful agent. Gone are the days of the one man show. This is why you should have me sell your property…you get me and you get my team.

We needed an agent that knew the west end of the city like the back of his hands, and Matt did not disappoint!
You cannot go wrong with the Brel team!! As a first time home buyer, I did tons of research beforehand. But I was stuck in a “read a lot but never take a step forward” phase. With the wealth of free information on the Brel site and positive reviews, I was impressed and decided to […]
We have used Matthew Shapiro and the Brel team twice in the last 2 years. What an amazing team they are. They take care of everything and truly go above and beyond for you.
