The complementary strengths of this husband and wife real estate team consistently provide results above and beyond their clients’ expectations. For this powerful pair, exceeding expectations is a key goal. Ingrid and Dave’s objective for the clients they serve is to make each transaction “The Best Move You Will Ever Make.”
RE/MAX Hall of Fame, Platinum Award and Lifetime Achievement award, the achievements of this team are built on a continuing drive to succeed. After growing up in the Bloor West Village, Ingrid studied music in Europe, attended business courses at Ryerson, and also earned an Early Childhood Education diploma. This determined entrepreneur started three separate businesses: an interior decorating service, a toy store, and later the Village Nursery day care centers in three locations. With success came an interest in investing in real estate, and it was at this point that Ingrid realized she would enjoy helping other people with buying and selling properties. She obtained her real estate license in 1987, and her background has contributed to her success: running the day care centers developed her business, selling and negotiating skills as well as accountability for results.
Growing up in north Toronto, Dave earned his BASc and MASc in Chemical Engineering from the University of Toronto, became a Professional Engineer (P.Eng.), and spent 20 years in the packaged foods industry in technical management, followed by five years in consulting. Dave continues to be a member of the Professional Engineers of Ontario. While working as an engineering consultant, Dave began helping Ingrid part-time. It quickly became evident that Ingrid and Dave could be very successful as a real estate team, and he finally decided to become a full-time agent. In 1998, Dave earned his license, joined RE/MAX West, and is now an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR).
Dave and Ingrid work with both sellers and buyers of all types of residential properties, primarily in west Toronto and Etobicoke. They also work with the builders, locating suitable properties for development or renovation. They also have access to a network of professional services such as home inspectors, home organizers, renovators, handymen, mortgage specialists, and various trades people.
This dynamic duo has the knowledge, skills, and experience to continue to provide exceptional service.
