I love my work in real estate. Helping people find a home or sell their home is gratifying.
I began in Real Estate in 1982 and have gained invaluable information, through experience, that I am able to share with clients.
I market properties both electronically and through print media with success
It is my privilege to be able to fundamentally assist in the process of home sales. Some of my clients choose to downsize and move into a smaller home, or condominium or cottage. These people are able to maintian a similar life style more comfortably.
I am passionate about the service that I provide.
I just wanted to thank you very much for the exellent work you did in sellng my late mother's condo, at 65 Skymark. You were a pleasure to work with, very professional and knowledgeable. Your suggested listing price was righton, and because of that the condo was sold in a very short time. Thanks to you we sold it at the highest price ever obtained for an original, unrenovated unit in the building! I also have to say a big thank you to your wife Pearl. Her suggestions for sprucing up the condo prior to it being listed were very much appreciated and I'm sure contributed to the quick sale. Her idea of staging was especially helpful. I could not believe how wonderful the condo looked with modern furniture. With a minimal cost we were able to make the condo look much more desirable and fresh. The two of you make a great team. I would very highly recommend your services to anyone thinking of selling or buying, especially in the Skymark buildings. I've worked with other real estate agents in the past, and found you to be easy to work with, thorough, and completely up to date on the market. All in all a great experience!
It is my pleasure to recommend Len Atkin as a real estate agent for any individual, family or business, buying or selling real estate. I had very unique and demanding circumstances acting as Power of Attorney so it was critical to deal with someone profesional, knowledgeable and experienced. Len certainly had all these qualities. Len always took diligent notes and listened to our specific needs, make several sound recommendations, understood our situation and the requirements we needed to fulfill our obligations and helped us navigate through challenging issues. He is beyond thorough, patient and kind and his sense of humour made this stressful process pleasant! I found Len to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if I was his only customer, although I know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day (and there were many of them). Len demonstrated strong negotiation and people skills, and provided us with an exceptional level of professional support. In demanding times, it is reassuring to have a professional like Len on your side.
When I decided to put my home up for sale I chose Leonard Atkin as my real estate broker and agent based on his knowledge of the downtown Toronto area and skills with investment properties. From our first meeting onwards, he ws helpful and a pleasure to deal with beyond expectation. Prior to the listing, Leonard guided me in walking throughout the home and outlining basic essential changes required to get the property to a sales ready status. He also put me in touch with a contractor who in a professional and timely and cost sensitive manner assisted in getting the required pre sale work done in time and on budget. He added extra details making up a brochure, room layouts and doing a mechanical inspection for gratis. In all my dealings with him he was funny, courteous and with special people skills. The sale of my house was complicated by the fact that the house is a milti unit residential home with tenants. In a calm and organized manner Leonard organized showings and managed to keep both prospective purchasers and the rental residents placated. He anticipated problems and managed to balance out everyone's needs. When setting the sales price and dealing with the purchase offers, Leonard guided me in making proper decisions and we priced the home at market value. In the end, I realized a sales price higher than anticipated. I believe this was due to the good direction and guidance from Leonard. He managed all aspects of this sale in a careful and professional manner. I am most thrilled with the outcome of this real estate deal and would recommend Leonard Atkin as a broker to anyone without reservation.
We are about to celebrate our third year at Skymark 65 and reminisced our move here to Toronto from Montreal. We were very apprehensive about leaving a home we loved and purchasing a condo in an area and city very foreign to us. We were fortunate to have made contact with you. You made our resettling very easy for us. You were very professional yet personal in your interaction with us. We never felt pressured and were confident that you exhibited integrity and worked in our best interest. You were always available to answer questions and all documents were carefully explained and efficiently prepared.
All your efforts were greatly appreciated. Thank You.
Leonard was our realtor when we sold our house after my mother died. He was absolutely perfect: sensitive to the situation, exceptionally helpful in arranging to stage the house and advertise it, and then he adopted a super strategy that enabled us to exceed the amount we thought we could get. Who could ask for anything more. I give Leonard Atkin my very highest recommendation.
My husband and I have used Len Atkin several times for both our personal and business needs. We have found him personable,professional and knowledgable in his field. Len always takes time to understand exactly what we are looking for.His patience and understanding was greatly appreciated. When I wanted to sell my home or my business Len came equipped with a great marketing approach. Whether it was the professional photography or Staging, he got the job done. My house looked great! I would definitely recommend him!!

We recently moved to Toronto from out of the province and were referred to Leonard Atkin. As we hadn't spent any time in Toronto prior to the move, Len was open and available to answer any questions we had on locations and market conditions. As we prepared for our house hunting trip, he sent us a variety of listings to review to further understand the market. Len was able to reschedule, when our trip plans had to be changed on short notice and was ready to show us a variety of listings in our desired area and price range. Len and his lovely wife Pearl were our guides as we arrived and showed us great hospitality and flexibility for our needs. Understanding that we only had a few days to choose and close on a home, they worked tirelessly to show us a variety of properties and work with sellers to discuss purchase options. We were able to close a deal on our new home within two days. Len was also gracious enough to attend to the residence on a couple of occasions on our behalf to confirm the vendor had addressed some deficiences as noted in our contract, as we were still out of town. We were pleasantly surprised with Len and Pearl when they stopped in the other day with a thoughtful housewarming gift, something not expected but appreciated. Our experience with Len Atkin was very positive and we recommend him when considering an agent in the GTA.

We would like to express our profound gratitude for your tremendously important assistance in selling our house. It is amazing, what can be accomplished with the help of a REALLY GOOD AND PROFESSIONAL real estate agent, like you are.
It was amazing! The house was sold within one week from the day it was listed. You were quick, friendly and patient, waiting for us to do all the modifications in the house.
You provided a very important and valuable advice to us how to make the house more attractive for potential buyers - and it worked!
Thank you again! It is the real estate agents like you who prove that professionalism works. We have received a truly exemplary service from you.
