Now celebrating 23 years in real estate, world-renowned realtor, guest speaker and peer mentor Leslie Benczik is ranked among the top 1% of all agents on the Toronto Real Estate Board. In 1999, and from 2001-2011, he held the prestigious honour of being the #1 Agent at RE/MAX All-Stars Realty Inc. and is also the recipient of numerous awards for real estate excellence.

His expertise lies in simplifying the entire real estate marketing process, applying solid strategic perspective, clear evaluations, and viable solutions that consistently yield top results.
From an early age, Leslie was exposed to all aspects of real estate, making his knowledge and insight second nature. His father owned a landscaping company and was also a real estate developer and investor. On a daily basis, Leslie observed the buying and selling process, taking a keen interest in the intricacies of negotiation. He also gained valuable insight into the importance of satisfying customers, understanding that providing excellent service plays a key role in achieving success. From dinner table discussions and attending meetings, to learning details of financing, preparing contracts and marketing land, his career path was set in motion. University studies in business and economics further developed his skills, providing a solid foundation for growth.
With a vision for creating an industry-leading real estate team focused on offering exceptional customer care, the Leslie Benczik team was formed. The idea behind a team concept was to provide clients with the best of both worlds: a dynamic group of top performing agents backed by a first class administrative support team proficient at coordinating all aspects of the buying and selling process. Working together, the Benczik synergistic team is able to offer clients faster response time, consistent communication, and accurate information when they need it most.
As a dynamic team leader, Leslie oversees all real estate transactions handled by the team. On a personal level, he provides a model for continuous self-improvement and commitment to excellence, helping each agent reach his or her full potential. Clients benefit from working with agents who are team-oriented, constantly sharing information and market experience.
