About Chip Barkel
Home is more than a house made from bricks and mortar, room sizes and paint colours, more than number of bedrooms and bathrooms. Home is how and where you want to style your life. It’s about you, your hopes and dreams. It’s the feeling you get when you first walk through the door, turn the lock, and kick off your shoes. It’s the feeling you have when you drive into your driveway after a long trip, and shift the car into PARK. You’re home.
Buying or selling your home is one of the biggest investment decisions you will make. I see my career in Real Estate as a facilitator and resource to help you find and acquire your dream home, or sell your property for the best price possible. Toronto is a very fast-paced real estate market. I care about my clients and the decisions they make. Let me help you simplify and navigate that process. My goal is extraordinary service and top results for each and every client.
I hold the MCNE (Master Certified Negotiation Expert) and SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist) designations. I am a committee member of the Young Professionals Network (YPN) at the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB).
I have lived in Toronto for many years, in downtown Toronto, Toronto East, and Willowdale, adjacent to Bayview Village, in what was once the City of North York. I have always given back to my community, through several years of volunteer work at a hospice, facilitating grief workshops, chairing fundraising events, and coordinating social media for Parkview Neighbourhood Garden.
To me, being a REALTOR® means more than selling homes. It’s about a relationship based on trust, integrity, knowledge, and expertise.
