Great rapport is a natural result of exemplary service

Read what some of our past clients have said about working with us to see what we’ve accomplished for them.

Heather and Michael seller Markham

Working with Leslie was an absolute pleasure. He is very prompt to respond to any queries and questions and has an organized approach to the entire home selling process.

Mac seller Markham

Alon was extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly. He gave us multiple options on how to list our property and how to attain the best selling price. His guidance through the negotiation process was excellent and we were very pleased with the level of service he and his team provided. I will definitely be recommending him to my family and friends.

Lawrence seller Markham

We were downsizing a senior who had lived in their home for 50 years and was quite an undertaking. Rachel did an amazing job and was very kind and considerate through the whole process, we would highly recommend her!

Meg and Pete seller Unionville

Leslie was outstanding! He was completely dedicated to us and selling our house for the best price. His stagers were incredible and made a huge difference. We’ve dealt with other realtors in the past and just felt like a transaction to them. Leslie’s whole style from start to finish was top notch. He started with presenting us with a complete review of the market in our community and having been a long time realtor, he really knows the market very well. Then his stagers and the photographer were fantastic. He produced a booklet for our house that was so professional. Couldn’t believe our house looked that pretty! Working with all of the showings and open houses was a breeze with him and he was in constant contact with us with feedback and updates all along. When it came time to managing the multiple offers, he was honest, straight forward and managed the highly stressful process with confidence and professionalism. We were ecstatic with our final offer which was the highest over asking price in the neighbourhood. Homes have sold before and after ours and none came close to what we got. I highly recommend working with Leslie and will 100% work with him on future purchase and sales.

A knowledgeable professional that enabled us to sell our house in 5 days for 35% over asking!
Leslie brought the right market insights and pricing strategy along with staging and photo/video to highlight the best our home had to offer. His expertise in negotiating in a multi offer situation allowed us to maximize our selling price.

Srikanth seller Markham

We recently worked with Alon Hillel and Leslie Benczik team to sell our house. This was our first experience and we couldn’t be more happier!

From our first meeting, Alon took the time to really understand our needs and priorities. His attentiveness and responsiveness gave us the confidence that we were choosing the right agent for the job. We needed a quick turnaround and he orchestrated all the processes that were needed in getting our house up for sale and selling it quickly in these uncertain market conditions.

Alon’s knowledge of the local real estate market in Markham is truly invaluable, and he and the Leslie Benczik team were able to provide us with valuable insights and advice throughout the entire selling process. He was always available to answer our questions and address our concerns, and that made us feel confident and comfortable every step of the way.

We would highly recommend Alon Hillel and the Leslie Benczik team to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and trustworthy real estate agent.

Gord seller Markham

Simply outstanding in every respect. Recommend to anyone looking for professional support, and a no-quit attitude.

Stewart seller Markham

Leslie Benczik and his team are professionals in every sense of the word. My Mom sought Leslie’s counsel in securing the sale of her property and after meeting with Leslie knew that her needs would be well served. From the very beginning of what was a long and challenging process (due to our property being tenanted), Leslie showed incredible care answering all of our questions; staying in touch with us as various steps were needed to be completed; they assisted my Mom with answering all questions quickly and adapted to meet her needs having many in person meetings and even carrying out some administrative tasks on her behalf.

Leslie and his team are caring; value oriented and extremely ethical. The nice thing is that during the sale and through all transactions one is made to feel like family and not just another client.

Jennifer buyer Markham

We’ve bought and sold again with Alon Hillel, and were again delighted with the experience. His expertise in the Markham Village neighbourhood gave us confidence the first time we worked with him (in 2010) and our trust has only grown since then. He worked hard to find the perfect home for us, as well as to get ours well-marketed and sold. Real estate has been a wild ride in 2022, but Alon helped us navigate on both the buying and selling side. Alon’s network of professional contacts (stager, home inspector, etc) were invaluable to us as well. We happily recommend Alon and the Benczik Kavanagh team!

Mac seller Unionville

Thank you Alon Hillel and his team for helping to declutter and ready our condo for showings without delay. His can do attitude and positive energy was a great help as we worked towards achieving a successful sale.

I would recommend Alon to friends & family !

Laurie seller Durham Region

During the sale of our family home, we wanted to work with a realtor who would be sensitive to our needs. Rachel Kavanagh was excellent – she was professional, attentive, informative and resourceful. Highly recommend!

Susan seller Stouffville

It has been a delight to deal with Leslie Benczik and his entire team. They smoothly guided me through the process of selling my home – from the listing agreement to offers for purchase – everything was clearly explained and with Leslie’s experience his advice was much appreciate. From MLS listing to multiple offers 4 days elapsed. I got full asking price, the closing date I wanted and an unconditional offer. But above and beyond the regular realtor services, Leslie went a step beyond. He arranged an electrician for a small repair. He even attended a meeting with the buyer to negotiate the sale of Contents. This was above and beyond the service I expected.
All meetings, calls, etc. were on time, everyone was so courteous and more than willing to oblige. I could not have found a better Realtor anywhere. Highly recommended.

Cornnor buyer Markham

Rosaria Vindigni helped me find a rental unit in the Unionville area. I have worked with multiple agents on different rentals in the past and she was by far the most professional out of the group. We had a very difficult time finding a unit that would accommodate my dog as I wanted to be upfront with the landlords even though we technically did not need to disclose this information. However, she stuck with me through this obstacle and eventually found an amazing unit that checked all the boxes. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to rent, buy or sell a house. I never felt pressured to to take a deal I didn’t want, which has happened to me in the past. She will go above and beyond for you and is always looking out for your best interest.

Kenny seller Markham

I had the honour to work with one of the best area specialist in the Markham area during a very challeging time. . Leslie was incredible to work with, honesty ,knowledge, integrity and professionalism. I can not asked for a better realtor. I would highly recommend him for any of your future real estate needs.

Haley seller Markham

Rachel Kavanagh and her team are a dream come true! I highly recommend working with them to sell your property. We were able to sell our house in 6 days for over asking during an unpredictable and slowing market. You can expect professional, trustworthy, kind, thorough, prompt, and full service. Rachel saw the value in our property and presented it with pride. We are so grateful for this experience and all her knowledge and support!

Dave seller Markham

Simply the best agent! STEVE was very knowledgable,very professional got our house sold during the market downturn. STEVE looked after everything from beginning to the end we were in good hands. Thank you STEVE for selling our house!

Andy seller Markham

Alon Hillel from the Benczik Real Estate Team was a professional and excellent agent from listing to sale of my old house, and then throughout the process of purchasing my new home. He was always quick to respond to inquires and always made time for showings that worked with my schedule. I received top dollar from my sale and a good deal on my purchase. An excellent experience from start to finish. Highly recommended.

Rebecca seller Markham

Leslie and Rosaria were wonderful to work with. They were professional, responsive and kind. Our property sold quickly and over asking.
We would highly recommend!

Tyrone seller Markham

Thanks Rachel and your team for responding very swiftly and professionally to our sudden decision to sell our home. Our home sold in 2 days at a fair price and we are very happy. Our experience was completely positive and we would recommend Rachel and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell
Yolande & Tyrone

Tamar buyer

It was a pleasure to work with Steve Ialongo on the purchase of our new home. It was clear from the start that he is results driven. He was quick to get us organized, very knowledgeable, and negotiated a great outcome.

We appreciated his approach which was friendly, professional, sincere and transparent. He also offered helpful guidance and advice throughout the process, and was quick to respond and follow-through on questions/requests.

Rob seller

We chose Steve Ialongo to sell our house after meeting with several other agents. From the get-go we felt like we were in good hands. Steve really seemed to appreciate the unique features of our house, and helped us come up with a good plan to get it ready to list. We felt supported the whole way through the process, and despite some market weirdness right at the point of listing, we ended up in a good place with the sale. We highly recommend working with Steve; he is extremely knowledgable, no-nonsense, and obviously cares about his clients.

Chloe seller Toronto

This was my second time working with Rachel Kavanagh and I couldn’t be happier with the results. The team that she brings to a property know what they are doing. They got my condo staged and on the market quite quickly. The photo’s and video they shot turned out beautifully. She answered all my questions in a timely manner and in a way that I could understand. Since I was moving outside of Toronto she was a huge help with putting me in touch with agents in all the towns I wanted to explore. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Rachel, and of course I would use her again for my next move.

Tanya seller Pickering

During the sale of our family home, we wanted to work with a realtor who would be sensitive to our needs. Rachel Kavanagh was excellent – she was professional, attentive, informative and resourceful. Highly recommend!

Martina seller Toronto

Rachel Kavanagh is the BEST realtor we have ever worked with. Efficient, honest, hard-working and works in your best interest. Great marketing team. Our humble home looked like a gem with her recommendations. Extremely professional. I would definitely use them again.

Carol seller Markham

We highly recommend Carly Whittamore and Debra Ambrose – two outstanding agents on the Benczik team. They are motivated, extremely professional, have a thorough understanding of the marketplace and above all, conduct themselves with the utmost of integrity. Their hard work and creative approach to marketing our building lot in Markham resulted in us receiving quality offers within two weeks of listing.

Recently bought my house with the help of agent Wu Li. Thanks for the help she gave me. I hope that more friends will ask her for help in buying their favorite houses in the future. Wishing her team happiness and health too!

Bina seller Toronto

“120% Committed. Over and Beyond” Those are the words I would use to describe the service I received from Steve Ialongo. My husband and I were blown away by the attention to detail Steve took in presenting the property in downtown Toronto. The condo sold within the week. We have known Steve for the past eight years, and each time his professionalism and commitment to his work has made us extremely satisfied customers. Thanks Steve for all the help over the years.

Robert seller Markham

Alon Hillel and the entire REMAX Benczik Team were a pleasure to work with. Alon was patient and informative. We were very impressed with Alon as he went above and beyond our expectations. He was always available to answer our questions or concerns and it was clear he is dedicated, seemingly working at all hours and 7 days a week! I would highly recommend Alon. He maintained his professionalism throughout the sales process. Thank you Alon and your team for making our sale a positive experience!

Stephanie buyer Markham

I worked with Susan Wen of Benczik Team Realty to find my perfect home in Toronto, and I couldn’t be more pleased! Susan guided me through the entire process with patience and care, ensuring all my needs were met and all my questions were answered without rushing to the next step.

Her level of professionalism and knowledge of the current market helped me to secure my home with confidence during a demanding and difficult season. Thank you for all your help, Susan!

Karen seller Stouffville

What can I say, Rachel, Susan and Leslie are the single best agents I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They not only were sensitive to the nature of this sale, but they marketed the property beautifully and strategically and got a price we never dreamed. Professional, skilled and a big huge WOW! Thanks guys for a wonderful experience.

Dewar seller Mount Albert

It was a pleasure to do business with Benczik and his team, with the entire process from beginning to end being quite favorable. The overall responsiveness and professionalism displayed, gave us complete confidence in their ability to accomplish the task at hand.

My family and I found Benczik expertise to be highly outstanding, he delivered as he promised and in 7 short days our home was sold. We are thankful for the remarkable service we received and with gratitude extend our highest recommendation.

Joseph seller Markham

We relied upon RE/MAX All-Stars Benczik Team Realty, specifically Rosaria Vindigni and Leslie Benczik to sell our home of 35 years, in Markham.

Long time and trusted Markham residents, including a person we have known for 50 years, referred Benczik Team Realty to us. Leslie and Rosaria applied no pressure and made it clear all major decisions were ours to make and/or change, at any time. They were unfailingly polite and responsive on a timely basis.

What impressed us most, was their judgement, knowledge, and experience with Markham real estate. They found or had on staff; people to get the house ready and market it. We simply followed their advice and are very glad we did.

Patricia seller Markham

We interviewed several known realtors in the Markham area before listing our home of 12 years for sale. Each realtor had an outstanding track record and plenty of experience, but as soon as we met Steve Ialongo from the Benczik Realty team, we signed with him on the spot. It was an easy decision. He was honest, knowledgeable and realistic–and was an expert in the Markham area. We always felt that we were in good hands and that as long as we followed his lead and advice, we would not be steered wrong. Getting a home ready to be put on the market can be a daunting and stressful task, but we felt confident that the recommendations that Steve was providing were worthwhile and it was comforting to know that we didn’t have to figure it all out on our own or second guess any decisions. We literally just put our trust in the expert and didn’t over think any part of the process–from staging decisions to pricing strategies. The staging went so well and really showcased all the aspects of our home that we loved. And we mostly appreciated Steve’s commitment to getting feedback from every single prospect that walked through our door. I have heard of so many other experiences with realtors that just put a home on the market and then there is very little feedback or communication unless there is an offer on the table. During negotiations, Steve represented us fairly and did not veer or try and dissuade us from our objectives. In the end, we got exactly what we wanted and the whole experience felt seamless. It was emotional selling our beloved home, but working with Steve and his team made the process as easy as it could possibly be. In the end, it was a positive experience from start to finish. Thanks to Steve and his team and we would definitely be working with Steve for any of our future realty needs!

Christine seller Unionville

We are so grateful to Alon Hillel and the Benczik Team who helped us sell our Unionville home with an incredible result! Right from the beginning, we knew that we could trust Alon and his team – the process from start to finish was completely seamless. Everything was explained in detail and we were involved every step of the way. He even took care of arranging for a handyman, stagers and photography. Thank you so much Alon and team for making the process of selling our home as easy and stress free as possible. We highly recommend Alon and the team to anyone looking to sell.

Naomi seller Uxbridge

When my husband and I decided to sell our house, we were faced with an endless selection of realtors. We ultimately chose to work with ReMax All Stars to sell our house. Alon Hillel was extremely helpful and knowledgeable – from staging to listing, to offer night and beyond – we were never left wondering ‘what next?’. He even brought us boxes and tape to help us pack. He went above and beyond, to make sure all our needs were met, his expertise was invaluable in making the process run smoothly. In the end he procured exactly the amount of money for our home that he had assured us we could expect. If you are planning to sell your home we would highly recommend Alon Hillel and the ReMax All Star team. Their professionalism is unparalleled you will not regret using their services.

Shalk seller Markham

Chris G. recently helped us with the purchase of our new home and sell our current home right after in the Markham area. Chris is an absolute professional, nice guy, market-savvy, a very good planner and strategist. Knows market movements in York/Durham very well. Well done Chris and Benczik team!

Rishma seller Unionville

Rachel is attentive, knowledgeable and experienced. She was honestly a superstar in helping my family with a very stressful move. Thank you for your insight, patience and warmth. Not to mention helping with big decisions, little details and everything in between. You’re the best! xo

Tamana buyer Richmond Hill

Alon Hillel from the Benczik Team Realty helped my parents sell our family home this summer and buy their new home too. Alon works with a reputable brokerage which is what attracted us to get in touch with them in the first place. It’s true that an established and respected firm in your local area can help get your property the most exposure as they are resourceful and well connected. So we were glad to get a phone call from Alon after we had reached out to the brokerage online. From the first meeting and throughout the process of selling and buying, Alon has been professional, knowledgeable, a straight shooter, punctual, and available to answer all our questions. Importantly, he helped us get focused and prioritized during such a stressful and busy time. He does not over promise and is really honest with what to expect.
When it comes to selling, he lets you know all the strategies with how to list your house on the market and he will also guide you in the direction that’s most effective and efficient in terms of what’s important and what’s not in preparing to sell your house. He helped connect us to all the right people and we were so glad he encouraged us to get our house professionally staged – a real game changer! When it came to offer night, he was an excellent negotiator and got our house sold firm and over asking in just 4 days!
We are still a couple of weeks from closing but we know we’re in good hands and that we can always rely on Alon.
We would definitely recommend him.

David seller Toronto

Rachel, Susan and the Benczik team are the best! We are 3rd time repeat customers and we wish we had more money so that we could keep on using them over and over again… Thank you!
