“Emotional day yesterday as we finalize the sale of our house. For those who had never seen it or never been inside, the house had reflected our mental health. Tired, worn, needed care, cried for help. I often joked about its state as a hoarders paradise but it wasn’t far from the truth. We hung on to baggage that should have been gone.We were really fortunate to have Linda Ing-Gilbert and her team move quickly to empty, repair and stage the house for sale. They talked us through the process and didn’t (openly) judge us. Linda kept us on track and held our hand (because it’s overwhelming).
Highly recommend Linda Ing-Gilbert
We’re still in Toronto ❤️ see you on FaceTime until the fourth wave is over.”

“We are writing to thank you very much for helping us find our dream home! You were patient, rational and wise throughout the whole process and we are very grateful for that. You imparted your guidance when needed but also let us make decisions for ourselves and never pushed us.
We agree with my dad, you are the best realtor!
Thank you again so much.”
~ Taleen and Joel
“We hope this finds you and your family well. We know this is very delayed, but we wanted to let you know that we have settled into the house wonderfully, and we absolutely LOVE living here! It is the absolute most perfect place for us. When we arrived, it took some time to get set up due to COVID and ordering furniture took longer than expected, but we are pretty much set up now and just love our little, cozy place “in the woods” as this is how it feels. As Upper Canada College has done an amazing job keeping the school and everything going given the circumstances, we did spend quite a bit of time working from home the past few months, and will be homebound for the next month, and it certainly has helped being in a place that is so lovely. Every day we say, “Thank goodness for Linda!” and we think of you often and have meant to touch base with you, but somehow time has just flown by. You did an absolutely amazing job finding and securing our place for us, sight unseen, while we were on the west coast. We have thought of you often and appreciate your work and time to help us transition to Toronto. We hope to one day be able to host you at our “little abode” and cheer you in person when the lockdown lifts! Until then, stay safe and healthy.”

“We asked for Linda’s help in selling our East York condo. She was generous with her knowledge and made great recommendations with regards to renovation, staging, and listing price. The extra work we put in to add value to our den and kitchen, plus the inviting and stylish decor she put together, and finally the sensible listing price — all paid off. I’m happy for us as sellers, and happy for the new owner who will enjoy the improvements. When it comes time to sell our next property, we are certainly going to approach Linda again. She bases her numbers using hard data, and she bases her staging on her natural sense of style.”
~ Catherine & Michel
“Linda exceeded any and all of our expectations. After dealing with several agents over the last three years, I was left feeling discouraged. Then I was referred to Linda. It was a pleasure having her to navigate us through hunting for a home. Linda is as knowledgeable as she is thorough, not only helping us narrow down and prioritize the qualities we were looking for in a property, but ultimately delivering us our dream home in a matter of weeks. Throughout the entire process, whether it was viewing properties, making an offer, or closing the deal, Linda exceeded any and all of our expectations. Her lovely personality and her infectious laugh were the icing on the cake.”
“My dearest Linda, we just wanted to tell you how wonderful you are! For being there and giving us strength when we didn’t think we could go on and showing us that there really is a light at the end of the tunnel. Especially, for all the time you unselfishly gave up with your family to help us. Our gratitude is endless and we will forever be indebted for all your hard work and dedication in getting our home sold so that we may start our journey to retirement. Not only did we find a great Realtor we found a wonderful human being who CARES. Thank you very much from the bottom of our hearts.”
~ Diane & Dave
“We tried to sell our house twice without any success. When we were introduced to Linda we were very exasperated by the whole process, but her confidence, approach, professionalism and attitude changed all that – our house sold in only 4 days! What other agents before her couldn’t do, she did in a very short time. Without hesitation we would refer her, and praise her as a truly AMAZING agent!”
~ Christine & Simon
“Sold my house in 6 days FIRM + $30,000 over asking price!”
“My husband and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support, both personally and professionally, through the whole process of selling our Riverdale home. As you know, we interviewed numerous other realtors, but were most impressed by your experience, knowledge of today’s market, professionalism, sincerity, and patience with us. Time and time again, you demonstrated your dedication to us by committing your time, energy and resources into doing the very best job. It is thanks to all your efforts that our home sold firm in just a few days at well above our asking price. We would recommend you highly to anyone looking for an honest and reliable real estate agent.”
~ Liliana & Angel
“We are fortunate to have Linda on our side. She was always available for our questions, and we benefited from her guidance through the buying & selling process. Linda has a keen eye on real estate, from both perspectives, making it a home and a savvy investment. My confidence in Linda stems from her strong work-ethics, commitment to put her client’s interest first, and top-class negotiation skills. We definitely would, and do, recommend her services to all our friends!” You have our continued support always.
~ Tanya, MBA, CFA & B.Comm.
“Linda is a great person and agent. Having met with many agents over our home search (lasting in total about 1 1/2 years) we met Linda at an open house – a few months later we were in possession of a lovely new home in the Beaches. Linda’s knowledge of the properties and the market are excellent, but what sets her apart from many other great agents is her dynamic personality, ability to understand her client’s needs, and exceptional negotiation skills. Linda we thank you for a great service in helping us find not only a house but a great home.”
~ Emmanuel, BA, LL.B., LL.L.
“We wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of your patience, help and advice. Since this was our first time, as you know, we had a lot of questions and you have answered each one quickly and accurately. Helping us to find a great place in such a short time frame was fantastic, and advising us to hold our offer, despite the pressure tactics of the listing agent undoubtedly saved us several thousand dollars. As we came to the end of things it is fair to say that you saved the day with regard to clarifying the parking spot. And you continue to help us regarding the rental of the unit. We seriously doubt that we could have accomplished any of this with a lesser agent!”
~ Agnes & Paul
“Linda’s dedication to her clients was evident from our initial consultation to the sale of our current home and purchase of our dream home. Linda addressed all queries promptly and patiently, and provided us with financial advice which allowed us to use money from a stagnant property tax account and put it to better use. Furthermore, Linda provided us with complimentary advice on how to effectively prepare and stage our house — giving us that ‘edge’ in a competitive market. Her professional negotiation skills allowed us to purchase a new home and sell our first home within a matter of days, while alleviating the stress of multiple offers. Linda provides a customized service which caters to the personal real estate needs of her clients, making the buying and selling process a pleasurable one. If you want a stress-free experience, call Linda!”
~ Karen & Jamie
“Hiring Linda was one of the best decisions we’ve made. We met Linda at one of the open houses she hosted. She was easy to talk to yet professional, but didn’t think too much of her then. A few weeks later, she got in touch with us to follow up. It was the first time we’ve ever gotten any follow-up from a real estate agent we met at an open house. Ever since we began working with her, we were in awe of her work ethic and knowledge of Toronto housing market. We would be looking at listings on MLS late at night, send her postings and within an hour, she’d respond with an analysis of pros and cons and her recommendations. She is respectful, honest and sincere, and committed to deliver what her client’s needs and wants. She went above and beyond our expectations to make sure that we are happy with our new house as well as, her staging & changes, in making sure we could sell our old place at a fair price. In a market where virtually anything that lists will be sold, it’s incredibly difficult to find someone you can trust and that cares. In our experience, most agents simply put in the bare minimum effort because a sale was inevitable. This is not the case with Linda. We’d work with her in a heartbeat and we’re happy to chat with anyone considering to do the same. Thanks for everything you’ve done for us Linda!”
