Len has the negotiating skills needed to get you the best deal whether you are buying or selling your home.
Len is a happily married family man, who has lived in Mississauga, Georgetown and the surrounding areas all his life. He and his wife have a family of five beautiful children and one terrific little granddaughter. It has been exciting for them to be involved with their children in the community of Georgetown and to watch it grow.
In the past 25 years, Len has been in 'your shoes' several times by buying or selling a home while adjusting his large family to each move. Len is all too aware of the importance of a 'good' agent.

“We had a pleasant experience with Silvana. She brought in a stager and did some pre-listing advertising—such services were foreign to me. She went beyond our expectations. Our previous home took a long time to sell and we had possession problems with our current home, none of which we wanted to encounter again. We told Silvana our concerns, and she understood completely and came up with a sales plan accordingly. I believe she genuinely enjoys her job helping people sell their homes and purchasing new homes. I would use Silvana again, and have already recommended her to others.”
-Jeannine P. and Andrew L.
"When we started our search for our first home a friend recommended Len Maclvor as our real-estate agent, and we are very happy with the choice we made to use his services. He proved to be very helpful and informative. He was always easy to get in contact with, and no matter where we were on his list of priorities he always made us feel that we were number one on the list.
We do not have much experience with purchasing real-estate but Len helped us through the process and made us feel at ease by answering any questions we had. He was very personable and warm, and this being one of the biggest decisions we've ever had to make he was always there for support. He was also able to recommend companies and services to help us with the process.
I would definitely use Len Maclvor as our agent in the future and I would have no problem recommending him to a friend or family member.
We are very happy in our new home.
“On very short notice, we had to put our house up for sale and in all my angst, Silvana calmly assured me that we could get the job done. We had the house listed in record time thanks to Silvana who helped steam clean my carpets and paint trim! We sold our house in 3 days, but Silvana worked well beyond that. She continued to be a support for us well after the close, communicating information for us, answering questions, and checking in on us. Silvana was extremely professional, always returned calls, texts and emails, and her integrity never wavers. I have told so many people about my experience with Silvana, solely because she has impressed me so much.”
-Liz and Trevor M.
“We've been buying homes and flipping them every two years and we’ve interviewed so many agents and used many. We are so glad that we meet Silvana two years ago. Silvana was very different from other agents that we met and dealt business with... the experience was very pleasant and professional. Any concerns that we had and all phone calls and emails were answered. She treated us as if we were her only clients. We were very difficult clients to deal with, especially my husband who did not want to change agents. He gave her a very difficult time and I thought it was an impossible list price and deadline, but we trusted that she would deliver the results that we wanted, and she did. She won the trust of my husband as well. Silvana was very different from the other agents that we interviewed; she never once spoke negatively of other agents or other real estate companies in order to gain our trust, her professionalism and tenacity highlights the best of her, and her honesty and way of being down to earth makes her stand out. When the house SOLD she did not stop there, as she still stays in contact with us... not like our previous agents where once the transaction was done we never heard from them again. This earned her our loyalty and we will not hesitate to refer her to our family and friends. We have no doubt that we will be using her again as our agent in the near future.
-Rosa D. and Family
“We want to thank Silvana for helping us with our purchase and sale. Silvana is extremely professional and is in constant communication before/during and after our transactions. She and her team went above and beyond during showings to ensure it was a comfortable experience. I would strongly recommend Silvana to the new home buyer and experienced buyer/sellers alike.”
-Karen and Patrick M.
“Since we were first-time home buyers and new immigrants in Canada, we were very unsure on how things would go but very thankful that we had our business with Silvana. I had requested some documents and drawings that I was told is not a common practice in Canada and she was able to give me them, going beyond expectations. Silvana was very trustworthy. She explained to me all the rebates that I can get for being a first-time homebuyer. She promptly replied to calls and emails and respected my time for my response. She gave me a lot of time to think during our buying period. I believe she did all her best in helping me and my wife. She explained everything I needed to know as a first-time homebuyer. I would definitely use Silvana again and recommend her.”
-Henry and Judith P.
“Silvana is very professional and I would highly recommend her to all I know and would use her again in a heartbeat if needed but she did find us the perfect home.”
-Kathy and Rodney P.
“Working with Silvana was a great experience. She was thorough, attentive, reliable and honest. Silvana clearly worked to understand our needs and wants and found us the perfect house. If and when we move again, anywhere, Silvana will be the first person we call! I have already recommended her to my co-workers.”
Kirsty and Chris D.
“On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you for the very pleasant experience that you provided us with your outstanding services as our Real Estate Agent
I can honestly say that buying a house and selling another one with you was an exciting experience. We could definitely sense that we could rely on your judgment and recommendations; we felt that you were trustworthy and hard working! We really appreciated your quick responses to our emails and questions, and there were quite a few! It was also pleasant because at no time did we feel pressured to make decisions and surely your experience and frank advice helped immensely with the difficult decisions, after all buying a house is the largest investment of our lives.
We were also impressed in regards to your creative solutions to the different matters including the proposals and counter proposals for the selling and purchasing of our houses.
We will definitely use your services again in the future, and we have recommended you too many of our friends. We wish you luck in your career and we have no doubt that with your enthusiasm, dedication, care and integrity, you can only succeed.
Thank you again for a wonderful experience.”
“We found Silvana to be friendly, knowledgeable and professional. She was always well prepared and never seemed to tire of answering our many questions. She responded quickly to our phone calls and emails. We were pleased to have had such a supportive person working on our behalf.”
-Leo and Carmel E.
“Silvana was great to work with. She had great attention to detail and always took the time to fully answer my questions. She was always responsive to our requests and made sure everything went smoothly. I’ve never met anyone with more enthusiasm than Silvana. Thank you again!”
It was a pleasure working with Silvana. I think went beyond my expectations. I knew things would be confidential and always keeping me informed. Silvana always called and returned my calls. She worked very hard and well knowing of my estate. I'm sure I would call Silvana for my agent. It's so true SIL SELLS.
“It was an absolute pleasure to "do business" with you. You made what was a very turbulent time in our lives as easy as it could possibly be. Thank you for your time and dedication and we will absolutely recommend you should we hear of any of our friends in the area are moving”
-Shannyn and J.F. L.
“Now I have had the experience of working with the superb real estate professional on the purchase of my new home. I thank you for that.
When we started this journey I was not aware how lucky I was going to be, to work with one of the best in the industry. What distinguishes you from other real estate agents is your warm approach and genuine care for your clients. You did everything with a smile and positive attitude, from patiently showing properties I was interested in, providing all information I asked for, to answering all my questions and addressing my concerns in a prompt manner. Thanks to your help.
Please consider myself a member of your ‘family of clients’. We’ll keep coming back.”
-Mackie and Verica
