Derek came to me on a recommendation from a friend who is also a client of his. He certainly did not disappoint. Quite the contrary. As a first time seller he guided me through the process and was always there when I needed him. In the end he sold the condo. Could not be happier with the result. I will certainly recommend him to my friends embarking on the same process!

Jack of all trades, master of all. Derek not only understood my needs as a buyer and found me the condo of my dreams, but he worked his magic and got it for me at an unbeatable price. As a seller, Derek and his team did an amazing job at showcasing my property for public listing and made sure that it received the traffic it deserved. My property was sold within my expected timeframes and at a price that made me happy. Not only is he an amazing real estate agent, he’s also an amazing human being. So that being said, I can’t THANK him enough for coaching and guiding me through what they say is “one of the most stress-inducing events of peoples lives”. THANK YOU!!!

When we were looking to sell our home, we knew Derek was the right realtor for us. He knew our area very well, he knew what needed to be done to get top price, and most importantly he knew how to make sure we were looked after. Every time we had a question or needed something we knew all we had to do was call and he would be there. We felt he really had our back. Not only that but he found us the most amazing new home in our child’s school district before it even went on the market. I can say without a doubt, if you are on the fence of who to use, use Derek for your real estate needs. He will go above and beyond everyone else.

Derek came highly recommended to me by my mortgage broker, and 30 days later I was moving into my new home. He helped me get the exact place I wanted, in the area I wanted, for the price I wanted. He was very accommodating to my complicated schedule, and made the whole process simple and effortless. Highly recommend!

Derek helped us buy a condo for our daughter who recently started School at U of T. We wanted a condo close to the school and within a price point. Derek found the perfect building for us and the perfect condo for our daughter under budget. Would recommend Derek.

I was looking for an investment property in the downtown core and Derek was referred to me by a friend. I gave Derek a call and arranged a meeting to see if he was the right fit for my needs. I was sold immediately. His professionalism, and knowledge of the condo market was beyond my expectations. He listened to what I had to say and within a couple weeks I was the new owner of a great condo in the heart of King West. Then before I took possession he had already found a tenant for it. Cannot say enough great things about Derek.
By: Steven G
I have been working with Derek for the past few years now. Derek has helped me sell some of my investment properties as well as buy my new family home. His knowledge of the market is second to none. Derek has a pulse on the market that I have not found with other realtors. I would suggest if you are looking for a realtor that truly knows the market and someone that truly has your best interest at heart then give Derek a call.
By: Deborah Kerbel
I would definitely recommend Derek! This is not my first time selling a home but it was the first time I really felt the agent knew his business. He provided very helpful information and explained his process in a way that definitely showed his expertise in real estate! Super responsive as if you are his only client! Friendly and professional.
By: Norma Strangway and Doug Manley
We recently listed and sold my family home with Derek Ladouceur after the passing of my mother. This was the home my parents purchased 65 years ago. Derek was so helpful and thoughtful during this difficult time and the house sold quickly and without any stress. He did a great job finding a buyer quickly and at the price we were hoping for. Thank you so much Derek!
By: Stacey Ireland
I wish I could give a 6 star review (out of 5) – I would certainly work with Derek again in the future!
By: Helene Espo
After five successful deals, I can confidently say that Derek Ladouceur is my go-to realtor when I am in the market for a purchase or sale. I was looking to purchase investment real estate and Derek’s expertise and guidance resulted in me acquiring two properties that continue to deliver a positive ROI. When I sold my own home, Derek was personable and attentive from the initial consultation, through to staging and professional photography. His attention to detail and knowledge of the market ensured that we received top dollar. Our home sold within a matter of days – at a record price. We set a new standard for the neighborhood!
By: Cait Jones
I recently purchased a condo in Queen West with Derek and would recommend him to anyone looking for an incredible real estate agent. Derek went above and beyond in so many ways during my search and purchase, it was amazing. He was always very quick to respond to me and show me the newest properties on the market. He listened to what I wanted and found me a place that I love and would not have found without his help. I can’t say enough good things about the experience of working with Derek, he is extremely good at his job.
By: Denise Gregg
It’s not always about selling homes with Derek. I recently went through a stressful event with my property and Derek helped me by putting me in touch with the professionals I needed. He also consistently followed up to make sure I was OK. He truly cares about people.
By: Alex Tsanis
I recently purchased a beautiful condo in King West and Derek made it happen! Derek spent months showing me condo properties in countless neighborhoods throughout downtown core. Initially the process of condo-hunting was intimidating, as I didn’t know what exactly I wanted, where I wanted to live, and how to go about obtaining the necessary information to make that decision. Derek was able to quickly determine what it was I was looking for, and narrow down the search accordingly. The whole time he was professional, punctual, extremely knowledgeable of every aspect of real estate, and there to help when needed. Thank you Derek!
By: Todd Anstey
I recently purchased a condo in The Beaches and Derek made the process not only fun and engaging but he was able to get me the exact type of property I was looking for. Overall a great experience!
By: Susan Rita Beck
We recently had a roller coaster of a ride with the selling of our home. Derek was absolute in his professionalism in all aspects. He was compassionate, kind and caring. He guided us through the sale and calmed our anxiety. Best realtor around. So happy we chose him as our realtor. Highly recommended.
By: The Beda Family
Derek promised to find us a condo that we would feel excited about and he did just that! During a time when the market was becoming increasingly challenging, Derek was never forceful, but he kept us focused on the goal and his expertise and knowledge of the Toronto market was second to none.
By: Yana & Gerhard
We had an incredible experience looking for and buying our first condo with Derek’s help. As first time home-buyers in an extremely competitive market, we were nervous that our ideal home would not be within our reach. Derek helped guide us by setting realistic expectations, narrowing the overwhelming list of options to areas that met our needs and budget, and providing us with in-depth information about certain neighbourhoods and buildings. He made himself available to fit our schedule and noticed details (good and bad) in each home that would have missed our attention. Once we found our perfect place, he worked quickly and diligently to make sure we had the best chance of getting it. We are extremely happy with our new home and extremely thankful to Derek for helping us find it. I would definitely recommend him to anyone else looking to buy or sell a property in Toronto.
By: Maneer Khan
As a first time seller of a condo unit, I was new to the whole process. Derek went out of his way to make the whole selling process feel calm and smooth; a great team effort and an excellent level of expedited service provided. The social media and radio announcement was indeed his great selling approach. Derek has been supportive, professional, dedicated, friendly and very positive. We would not hesitate to reach him out for future sale of our property.
By: Marcie Hughes
Derek recently helped me sell my condo in North York. This was my first time selling a home, and Derek’s expertise and advice was invaluable. He was very patient and helpful, and maintained great communication throughout the entire process. He is highly attentive to detail, and after having my condo staged, it sold in less than 24 hours! Bottom line – I can’t imagine having a more positive experience and would highly recommend Derek
By: Evangeline Etty
I was glad that I decided to choose Derek Ladouceur from Remax Hallmark among the list of real estate agents to sell my property; he exceeded my expectation of an agent. Derek made every effort to get me the best value for my property and even surpass the amount I’d hoped for. My sincerest thanks goes to him and the staff that worked with him in making it happened. Derek is such a nice and very professional individual so placed all my trust in him with regards to selling my property and sure enough he made me one happy client. I will surely have him again as my agent for future real estate transaction. So if any of you looking for real estate agent with high caliber and knows the business well but yet down to earth, I highly recommend Derek Ladouceur for you.
By: Todd Anstey
After spending a few years out of the market I decided it was time to buy a place again so I reached out to Derek and we started the process. He proved himself not only to be knowledgeable and professional but he really took the time to get to know exactly what I was looking for and after a few visits to different places we found a new home for me. I also have to comment on the other folks that he put in contact with to complete the transaction – they were all excellent and really created a seamless process for me. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Derek to any of my friends. Thanks Derek for making what could have been a daunting and stressful process a simple and fun one instead!
By: George Kusraev
Derek Ladouceur is fantastic broker. My wife and I were lucky to find Derek and his team as our real estate agent. Derek managed to get as much profit out of sale as possible. In a difficult situation Derek represented himself as a professional who is willing to help and not leave you behind. We appreciate his help and will recommend him to all our friends and family.
Derek makes buying a home fun! I wish I could do it all over again. Hey, maybe I will some day and hopefully with Derek again.
By: Krystle Zalamea
Derek was able to sell my condo before it even hit the market (MLS). It was through his contacts that he found a buyer right away. The condo was in no way ready for selling at that time but yet he was able to get the price I wanted. Im very happy and grateful for the advice he gave through the selling process and the ease of the transaction. He also sticks to his word. I would most definitely recommend him for anyone looking to buy or sell.

Victor and I would like to extend a warm thanks and gratitude in helping us with the purchase of our Toronto Condo. Living in Cambridge was a challenge to drive to Toronto when new properties came on the market, you made it a very pleasant experience and a quick one. Not only are you a man of integrity, but your patience and professionalism made us at ease when it came to making the final decision. Throughout the entire process we felt that your background as a realtor and your honesty assured us we were in good hands. Not only was the process a pleasant one but a quick and easy one for us, you made us feel like we were your only clients! We bought our condo within two weeks of the start of this process, which shows us that you understood what we were looking for and could deliver. Thank you for making our condo buying experience such a positive one. We will definitely mention you to our friends and family looking for real-estate in the Toronto area!
By: Eric Round
My wife Natalie and I recently had the pleasure of working with Derek during the purchase of our new house, and sale of our current home. In today’s Toronto, things move rather quickly, and outcomes can vary tremendously in this busy and increasingly competitive real-estate market. Derek was extremely well versed in his knowledge of this ever changing marketplace, and was obviously well educated in the on goings around not only our current neighborhood, but our new location as well, which proved to be extremely valuable. Derek brought his knowledge, his professionalism, his network, and his hard working attitude to each and every interaction, applying himself extremely well so that we would ultimately be successful in not only the largest purchase of our lives together – but also the largest sale. Thanks to Derek, the entire process took under a month from buying to selling. He is well connected not only within his network of agents, but also carries with him a network of impressive professionals that helped make this process much easier – from painters, to stagers, right down to movers. All very impressive, just like Derek – true professionals, acting quickly and proficiently with skill, at a very good price. Not only were my wife and I extremely pleased with the end result, we are more than happy to share our story on how well things went all due to our Realtor – Derek Ladouceur. We could not be more ecstatic with the outcome, thank you so much Derek, we are thrilled with the job you’ve done! Not only do we have a Realtor for life, we now have a friend in the real-estate business.

On being given a referral to work with Toronto Realtor, Derek Ladouceur, we have not looked back. We were emigrating from the UK to Toronto and Derek could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. All the phone calls to the UK before we arrived and finding out exactly what we were looking for, to explaining how the system works over in Canada, to helping us find the perfect house; he was totally prepared to handle everything. When we arrived in Toronto he collected us from the hotel and drove us round tirelessly for three days having booked all the appointments at houses we wanted to view and it was effortless for us. The amount of work he did on our behalf and the trouble he went to was fantastic. We bought one of the homes we viewed in those three days and it is stunning. He has helped us in every way and we have no hesitation in recommending Derek to anyone looking for the perfect home in Toronto. He could not have done more to help us.
By: Jill & Terry MacIntyre
Our condo was recently sold by Derek Ladouceur of Re/max Realty. We couldn’t have had a better experience. From our first meeting, through staging, photographing the space, showings, to the final selling, Derek made the process seamless and stress-free. His enthusiasm, knowledge of the process and experience from other sales kept us comfortable and confident that we had chosen our realtor well. Derek kept us informed of every detail and offered good advice when needed. When we had concerns Derek listened, was responsive, and addressed those concerns. As proof of his excellence as a professional, he was able to sell our unit for the highest amount ever sold in our building. We highly recommend Derek to anyone who wishes to sell in our city.
By: Cathy Kaddie
Last year when my life was very busy and hectic. I decided to sell my house and I chose Derek to work with he is very professional and a pleasure to work with he helped to take a lot of stress away when making decisions. He helped by providing ideas to best prepare my home for selling, and it sold over asking within a week, he’s always on time and very responsive to emails and phone calls and was a great to keep me informed and calm. He even connected me with all the other services I need to sell my home like a lawyer. Additionally, Derek even went out of his way to help me purchase a new home outside of the city. It’d be a pleasure to work with Derek again.
By: Kester and Victoria
Derek Ladouceur is an amazing agent. My wife and I found him through a referral during a stressful time when we were selling our condo and looking for a house. Our previous agent was pessimistic and would not take our instructions. He told us to put our condo on the market at a price that was $200,000.00 below the market value, instead of doing his job and try to promote our condo at the fair market value. After firing our previous agent and meeting with Derek, it was like a breath of fresh air. Derek is assertive, optimistic and has lots of helpful connections. He listened and understood our needs. Within a week of meeting him, he sold our condo close to the price that we were asking for. Within 2 weeks of selling our condo, Derek also helped us find our dream home. We will highly recommend Derek to anyone who wants their needs met quickly and efficiently. Derek will always ensure that his client’s needs are met. Derek is aggressive when selling your house, but not pushy when you are looking for a house. I would also mention that Derek’s after sale service is also amazing. Because of his connections, we found some reliable and amazing people to help us move and deal with other things when selling our condo and when moving into our new home.
By: Manny & Zack
We were about to get married and looking to upsize from our downtown Toronto condo to a home in our favourite area of the city, the Beaches. We met Derek. Unlike many other realtors, he was professional and not overbearing. He worked tirelessly to list and sell our condo at a price we were happy with. He also helped us to purchase our new home in the Beaches. The market in Toronto was so competitive that we have no doubt we would not have won the bidding war if it weren’t for Derek. Without hesitation, we would use Derek again and highly recommend him for anyone’s real estate needs.
By: Brandi & Jason Noon
We met Derek at an open house and immediately trusted and liked him. Working with him to find our first home was a very positive experience. He is very patient, knowledgeable and savvy, and has a great grasp of the current and potential value of different properties. His opinions, insight and expertise were invaluable in helping us to find the perfect home. We won’t hesitate to contact Derek when we outgrow it.
By: Dominik Diamond
Derek is an ultra-knowledgeable professional who treats clients like family. He first found our family the perfect rental in the Beaches, and then he helped us buy the perfect family home the Danforth. Nobody gets deals done quicker than Derek. Within 24 hours of seeing the house, Derek had got our offer accepted by the seller, and this was on a weekend. I wouldn’t dream of using any other realtor in Toronto.
