Welcome to home-james.ca

In 2015 I’m celebrating my 10th year as a real estate salesperson. It’s been hard work and a lot of perseverance but it’s worth it and I love what I do. Prior to real estate I had a very successful 15 years in the travel industry, sandwiched between 3 wonderful years teaching English in Osaka, Japan. Both of my children were born in Osaka. My success in Real Estate is born out of hard work, honesty, tough negotiating and integrity. Over the last 10 years I’ve become familiar with many areas throughout the city, and I’m frequently helping buyers in far flung areas of the GTA: Mississauga, Pickering, Scarborough and Vaughan to name a few. I live in Danforth Village and spend a lot of time showing, viewing and selling houses in Riverdale, Leslieville, Beaches and Cabbagetown, as well as North York and the west end. No matter where you are, whether you’re buying or selling, residential or condo, I am confident that I can exceed your expectations. I have an excellent team of mortgage specialists, home inspectors and stagers to help with every aspect of buying and selling, and I work under the umbrella of the biggest, and best, real estate brokerage in Toronto – Re/Max Hallmark Realty Ltd.

I’m an active participant in the community and am involved with many charitable events throughout the year. I have organized and run the Re/Max Hallmark team for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) ‘Ride for Diabetes’ for the last 7 years. As well, this is my 7th year of making breakfast, every Monday, at Blake PS in the TREB/TDSB funded ‘Breakfast Program’. I love it! I also participate in annual events like Yard Sale for the Cure, Big Brothers and several Christmas charities.

I am a keen sportsman and an overly-fanatical supporter of Chelsea FC in England, as well as the Raptors and Maple Leafs. I have travelled extensively, with over 60 countries visited and in 2003 my wife Brigid and I spent a year backpacking around the world with our then 10 year old son and 8 year old daughter. I can always offer sound, unbiased travel advice too!

“I strive to help each client through open communication, understanding and integrity. My commitment to results is enhanced by having the proper systems in place and using the latest technology. This enables me to maximize my client’s profitability and ensure complete satisfaction.” – James van der Borgh
