Couldn't have done it without him.Alyssa Trivelli—May 2016
Frank was more than amazing. He was attentive, came to all of our viewings, and listened to all of our concerns. What we loved about him the most was that there was no pressure, he just wanted us to be simply happy. We are now happily living in our first home because of Frank. Thank you!Dauren Simmonds—May 2016
My wife and I trusted Frank to help us find our first house and we couldn't be happier! Frank was extremely patient with us, walked us through the entire process step by step, and was extremely responsive to our questions over phone and email. Frank only showed us listings that fit our lifestyle (a good home in an up and coming neighbourhood that didn't need any work done to it), so we didn't have to see dozens of houses before settling on one we liked. He was such a great agent that he helped us win the FIRST house we bid on. I know people that go through dozens of bidding wars before getting a house, but Frank helped guide us so that we bid just the right amount to win, without overpaying. I highly recommend Frank to anyone looking for a house or condo in the GTA.Andrew Lee—May 2016
Right from the start, Frank impressed me with his knowledge, skill, attentiveness and friendly, low-pressure service. He listened carefully to what I was looking for in a pre-construction condo and managed to find it for me, much more quickly than I ever expected. And when the price was more than I wanted to spend, he helped bring it down substantially to something I was more comfortable with. It's been 6 months since I made my purchase and Frank still reaches out to give me updates, which I appreciate immensely. I highly recommend Frank and look forward to making use of his skill and expertise again in the future.Terry Levine—May 2016
Frank was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable throughout the entire process of buying my first condo! We met multiple times over the course of 3-4 months looking at many places, I never felt pressured into buying (which was my biggest worry going into this). He was always attentive to my questions and easy to get a hold of! Frank is a great agent, down to earth and I would definitely work with him again.Elissa Ellins—May 2016
I had the pleasure of working with Frank on a recent home purchase. He is quick to respond and his attention to detail is unparalleled. Frank is the best at what he does and I look forward to working with him again in the future. Strongly recommend his services.Jordan Atlas—May 2016
My wife and I met Frank a couple years ago when we wanted to get started in the world of investment properties. Since that time we have had the opportunity to work with him a few times. Frank is extremely knowledgeable and has helped us build up our knowledge of real estate investing and being a landlord. He is able to understand our goals and is able to find creative ways to help us achieve them. He has a low key approach that we really respond to. He gives us the facts and the pros and cons of different scenarios and doesn't push us into making a decision. He is also well connected and has equally reliable contacts from mortgage brokers, to lawyers, to contractors. We will be closing on our third property with Frank next week and when the time comes to look at the next one, our only call will be to Frank! Thanks for all your help and keep up the great work!Mike Butler—May 2016
Frank is amazing! Always 100% professional yet very personable. His advice is unbiased, nuanced and everything you normally don't get from a real estate agent (in my jaded experience!). I'll be the first to admit that I can be a demanding client at times but he handles all my requests elegantly and has only shown me places that I'd genuinely be interested in. He listened to all of the feedback I gave after a viewing and I never had to tell him twice or waste my time at a place that wasn't in interesting to me. His attention to detail and the time he took to walk me through the contract wording was tremendously valuable. If you're interested in any real estate related query Frank is your man!Dipika Deol—May 2016
10/10 Frank Lardi is a consummate professional who was extremely helpful in all aspects of the buying process, not to mention following up to ensure a seamless transition. Frank worked closely with me to educate me on the market, assess my needs and narrow down the search. By taking a disciplined and rigorous approach to my search he saved me time and a ton of effort. I really felt as though he cared about my purchase as if it was his own and ensured I was comfortable and informed at all times. Since first meeting with Frank he stayed in touch with me, waiting until I was ready to start the search process. As a sales person I very much respect his dedication and commitment to a long term/relationship based approach. You could tell he wasn't in it for a quick buck and I like to reward those types of people with my business. Since having such an incredible experience with Frank I have gone on to recommend him to friends and family where he has continued to deliver great results. I respect Franks direct approach, responsiveness and view him as a true expert in the downtown and GTA marketplace. He is one of the very few people I have found in the residential real estate marketplace who I appreciate as a partner and view as strategic counsel for all my real estate needs. I don't write reviews often (actually ever really), so you can imagine that this one must be well deserved. If you're considering buying or selling, Frank should be your first call.Matt Lester—June 2016
Finding a realtor you can trust to have your best interests in mind and whom you actually enjoy working with can be hard to come by. Lucky for us, Frank has been an invaluable resource over the years from finding us our dream loft to helping with our rental property. He is extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and a true pleasure to work with. We cannot speak highly enough of Frank’s services as a realtor and have confidently recommended him to our family and friends. Thanks Frank!Irene Li—June 2016
Last fall Frank helped us purchase our first home and we couldn't have received better service. His professionalism, patience and understanding were present every step of the way as we navigated all the hoops and hurdles associated with the purchase. If you are looking for a trusted agent, I encourage you to meet with Frank.Brett Burns—June 2016
Frank represented us in the purchase of a new pre-construction townhome. From the beginning Frank was immensely knowledgable and an invaluable partner in understanding the complexities and nuances of our decision. He helped at each step of the way to ensure we understood our range choices and the implications of various scenarios. We always felt we were in good hands as he helped broker an agreement and close the deal.Steve Tang—July 2016
Frank is a well informed and talented realtor. Always there to answer questions and goes above and beyond for his clients. Our situation was a little more complicated as we were foreign buyers looking for a place in Toronto. Frank helped us find the right place and to his credit has continued to support us years into the purchase. Very grateful to have found him!Javier Soto—August 2016
Working with Frank was a great experience. We live outside Toronto and we were looking to buy an investment property. Frank took the time- in person and through emails- to answer all of our questions and walk us through the new construction condo buying process. We appreciated his honest, educated and straight forward answers. We will definetly work with Frank again and would recommend his services. Thanks Frank!!Megan Marando—August 2016
Frank was amazing from start to finish. He has a great depth of knowledge of the market and the ability to quickly narrow the search to exactly what I was looking for. When it came time to sell my condo he had it sold within a day over asking with multiple offers. Highly recommended.Ken Constable—September 2016
Being a Mortgage Broker myself, I cross the paths of many Realtors and I assure you they are not all created equal. Simply put, Frank is one of the best I have worked with. His ongoing communication style combined with his intimate knowledge of the Toronto Real Estate market is what set him apart. Frank has a way of instilling confidence in his clients to make the most informed and financially beneficial decision. If needed, Frank will run analytics and net worth projections regarding your potential purchase because he understands the numbers behind investing in Real Estate. He lives and breathes Toronto Real Estate and will provide very specific insight on properties that you just won't find anywhere else. Like many others, I highly recommend using Frank for your next Real Estate purchase - you won't be disappointed.Ryan Wiley—October 2016
We met Frank several years ago at an open house while we were casually perusing the market. Frank really stood out to us not only because of his immediately personable approach, but because he followed through on his commitment to check in with us every few months. When we were finally ready to sell and upsize our condo, Frank was the obvious choice. Frank remained friendly, approachable, and professional throughout our sale process. He patiently answered our numerous questions, and expertly negotiated our sale. Frank was truly a pleasure to work with and we will not hesitate to work with him again when the time comes. We recommend Frank highly and without reservation.Kyle Rostad—November 2016
Frank is an extremely knowledgeable, reliable, and dedicated professional, not to mention a very friendly and down to earth person! As a first time homebuyer with very limited knowledge, I felt confident that I was in good hands. He took the time to lead me through the process, was very responsive to my questions, concerns and ideas, and connected me with other highly reputable mortgage and legal professionals. I really appreciated that he made a point to clearly understand my needs, likes and dislikes and narrowed my search to surprisingly suitable listings in an otherwise limited market. I credit him for presenting me with a terrific condo opportunity that truly was 'the one'. His recommendations and insights are educated and honest, but not forceful. His calm professionalism was the right fit for me and his knowledge of the market was invaluable. What stands out the most about working with Frank is that he made me feel like I was a priority at every step. I would not hesitate to work with Frank again and will be recommending him to friends and family who are looking to buy a home now and in the future.Lise Boucher—March 2017
Frank recently helped me sell my condo, and was an incredible resource every step along the way. From providing regular updates on comparable units, to suggesting minor improvements to improve the sale price, to connecting me to stagers, painters, and more - Frank was always on the ball. He's responsive, knowledgeable, and really great to work with. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy/sell in Toronto!Victoria Murphy—May 2017
Frank was extremely insightful, compassionate, and personable throughout the entire process of finding our dream condo. When most people would consider a home search to be stressful, Frank made the entire process seamless and exciting. The most unique aspect about working with Frank is that he has such a strong passion for real estate, and we felt he genuinely wanted to ensure that we found our dream home. Rachael and I were first-time home buyers, and Frank was able to guide us throughout the entire process. He was extremely attentive, while giving us the feeling of being top of mind on a daily basis. He provided new listings being provided to us consistently and frequently that met the specifications we were looking for. Most importantly, Frank has a significant level of knowledge and experience in the bidding war process. During a period where there were literally dozens of bidders per property, Frank was able to lead us into successfully defeating the competition to obtain our first property - we absolutely love the place. We would highly recommend Frank to family and friends, as we continue to stay in touch with Frank and now consider him a friend. Hope to work with you soon Frank!Michael Picard-Vu—June 2017
We are writing this review as a thank you to Frank for all that he has done for us. The following words would best describe Frank. PROFESSIONAL, ARTICULATE, COMPASSIONATE, PATIENT, TALENTED, PRECISE We came to know Frank as a young family seeking to diversify our investments through real-estate. We were truly eager but incredibly green and inexperienced. With a strong desire to jump into the market we blindly purchased a condo unit from a developer prior to meeting Frank. In a chance meeting, Frank recommended that we break from our contract if at all possible. With his expertise and knowledge of the condo landscape he new this particular developer was in financial disarray. He was right, a couple of months later the builder filed for bankruptcy leaving many investors in difficult situations. With a small recommendation Frank saved our family from an enormous amount of hardship and financial grief. Six months later with an understanding of our goals, Frank patiently created and guided us through a proper investment plan that navigated us through Toronto's competitive condo market. Teaching us invaluable skills along the way and connecting us with the proper channels and resources we successfully executed our plan. Like an exceptional coach he kept us focused on our goals and provided us with the support and knowledge during the purchasing and bidding process. Never veering from our optimal plan of only pursuing cash flow positive units in the downtown core and preaching patience during a market environment that yielded minimal options Frank was always available to answer any of our questions as we leaned upon him not just as our agent but as a mentor, teammate and a resource on our journey towards investing in the real-estate market. He is truly an exceptional agent with a high level of expertise in his field. His knowledge of the industry is expansive and his passion for helping his clients is always at the for front. We look forward to continuing to work with Frank as we build our real-estate portfolio and we highly recommend him to any one who is seeking an exceptional experience when finding their next property. Thank you Frank for all that you have done for our family! Shannon, Anne, and AriaShannon Wong—July 2017
Frank is just ... the best. I can't say enough about my experience working with him. Extremely knowledgeable, kind, responsive to all my neurotic concerns, and he ... listens. He intuitively understood what I was looking for before even I did. As a first time home buyer I never once felt uncomfortable or in over my head with Frank. This was especially true AFTER I won my bid -- we had a few problems with the place and he was brilliant in solving them. Buying a home can be stress-inducing. Not with Frank. There are very few people in any facet of life I'd recommend working with more. And he's a great guy to hang out with to boot. If you're reading this and looking for an agent, you've found your guy.Eric Bombicino—August 2017
FRANK!! What can we say? He's been amazing to Garus and me. We have so enjoyed working with him. He is responsive, helpful and very intuitive. He quickly gleaned what we were looking for and tailored our listings to just what we were after. He made the process painless and fun! Thanks for everything. We would highly recommend him.Bessie McDonald—September 2017
Frank was a great guide on my journey to buying my first home. He provided no BS advice on the current market space and what needs to get done to buy a place. He was also patient with a first time home buyer and was excellent in describing everything.Jordan Saxe – November 2017
I cannot recommend Frank enough! I had my condo listed with a previous agent for over 45 days and nothing. I was lucky enough to switch to Frank and sold within a week and a half! From the first meeting you can see the difference in knowledge of area, clients, response times and organization compared to others I have worked with in the past. Thanks again Frank!Dylan Goff – December 2017
Frank recently helped me purchase several investment properties in the very competitive pre-construction condo market and was a great resource every step of the way. He had early and exclusive access to developments that weren’t available to the general public and was even able to secure a suite in a boutique building that sold out in less two days, despite a long waiting list of buyers. Frank is not only well versed in all the nuances of buying new construction but has a great deal of experience working with investors specifically. As a result, he was well equipped to understand my goals and expectations, identify great investment opportunities that met my needs, and back it all up with numbers. Frank is extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and a true pleasure to work with. I cannot speak highly enough of Frank’s services as a realtor and would highly recommend him.Vishal Ratti – January 2018
Dear Brad Lamb,
I would like to recognize Frank Lardi for his work and efforts in the purchase of my first condo, pre-construction. As I take possession now, years later, I still remember how Frank meticulously reviewed my contract. Throughout the construction of my condo, I came back to Frank when I needed advice and he was always there to help. When I had to choose my upgrades and finishes, he offered tips with consideration towards resale. When I had my Pre-Delivery Inspection, he offered advice on what to look for.
All in all, Frank went above and beyond the role of a typical agent. From start to finish, Frank is the ultimate professional. I have already recommended Frank to my friends and will continue to do so in the future.Jason Mah
I am writing to express our most sincere thanks and appreciation for one of your agents, Frank Lardi. My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of working with Frank to find our first home together. Two individuals with very distinct must-have lists..you can imagine what Frank was working with! We had both never worked with a real estate agent before so going into this, we were apprehensive at first. To our surprise, working with Frank was very enjoyable and not once did we feel pressured into getting something we weren't sure about.
Many status reports and viewings later, we found our dream loft and we truly owe it to Frank for providing his expertise when it came down to how to bid and ultimately come out at top. Frank also helped me successfully lease my condo unit in the span of a week's time at full asking. His expertise, coupled with his attentiveness to each of our needs, genuinely made this process a breeze for us. We would not hesitate to recommend Frank to anyone looking to buy, sell, or lease, and we look forward to working with him again in the future!Irene Li (and Trevor Johnstone)
Dear Brad Lamb,
I would like to leave you a short note on a wonderful real estate experience. my son and two friends needed a rental for the upcoming school year. After having two miserable real estate experiences with different company agents along came Frank Lardi. He has been such a breath of fresh air. He was kind,hardworking and very professional in an industry filled with shades of grey.Frank took the time to coordinate the signing of the lease between three unavailable parents via email.I will have no problem recommending Frank Lardi and Brad Lamb realty to my friends and colleagues.William Russell Bsc., DDS.
