Leo was highly recommended by a friend whose apartment he had recently sold. I was so glad for the recommendation. Leo was great, he took the time to meet with me several times to discuss strategies for listing and always patiently answered my many questions. He was caring, personable, organized and incredibly reliable. A phone call or email was answered in a remarkably short time. Leo sold my apartment effortlessly in just 6 days, getting multiple offers well over asking price. The whole selling process went easily and smoothly. Leo continued his amazing service through the closing period remaining caring and patient with my seemingly never-ending questions. He was always willing to advise and help. I have no hesitation in recommending Leo to anyone as, in addition to his great people skills, he is an excellent strategist & negotiator, extremely knowledgeable and professional. He is absolutely amazing!

I was recommended to Leo by a coworker and did not know what to expect. As time went by Leo kept surprising me with new outlooks and his view of things looking at different places that were suitable for me. it was a pleasure to work with Leo. He listened to what I was looking for and found what I needed. His input was invaluable and well received and his negotiating skills are second to none. He is comfortable to deal with and I would recommend him in the future to anyone that is looking to purchase their perfect home. Thank you Leo for helping through a stressful time in my life!

Being a first time home buyer, Leo made the process of purchasing my first house so easy! He is very thorough, detail oriented and responded to all of my questions in a timely manner. He also took the time to go over all of the steps in purchasing a home. I am so happy with my new place and want to thank Leo for making it a great experience! I would highly recommend using Leo as your real estate agent.

Leo has been a great friend that I've known for years, he's always been there for his clients and gone above an beyond. He recently helped my fiance and I purchase a town home near Deep Cove and we couldn't be happier about it. He was very professional and helpful with providing us with all the detail and had gone through all the pros and cons diligently. I've certainly recommended his service in the past and will continue to do so! Thanks Leo!

Ten months ago we started the process of looking for our next home. We had very specific requirements and wanted to downsize not downgrade. Leo patiently led us through the process and after viewing countless properties, in an extremely competitive market with multiple offers, we found our new dream home. Within a week our property was listed and sold. Leo marketed our home so well we received 11 offers and he expertly negotiated a price well over asking. We couldn't be happier and would not hesitate to recommend Leo's services. Bravo Leo

My wife and I met Leo by chance at an open house and we are lucky that we met him. Although the beautiful duplex that Leo was selling did not fit our needs, he was willing to explore a variety of options until we found a perfect match. Leo successfully negotiated a great price on a brand new single-detached house for less than asking price, he than convinced the builders to include GST, and somehow worked-in quality stainless steel appliances for the house and rental unit below. Keep in mind this is all during the hottest market to date when most houses were going well above asking price and buyers were in bidding wars and multiple offers situations. We were very happy with our home and thank Leo for making it a great experience. We would highly recommend Leo if you’re looking to purchase a new home.

Leo was absolutely fantastic at helping us to find our dream family home. We started the process with very little local knowledge, but a lot of ideas. Leo took the time and care to educate us about the market, and was extremely patient as we struggled to find what we needed in such a competitive region. He was tremendously reliable and responsive, giving us the information we needed quickly. With Leo’s expert guidance, we won a really tricky buying situation with multiple bids. His negotiation skills are excellent and we could not be more grateful for his support! We recommend Leo’s services unreservedly!

My sister and I had been trying to sell our two townhouses for at least a year through other realtors without success. Leo came highly recommended by my sister’s friend. He sold both of our townhouses effortlessly getting over asking price for one and full asking price for the other in a very short period of time. The process was so smooth and Leo seemed very experienced in handling multiple offer situations and getting us the very best price for our homes. We could not be happier. He also assisted us in negotiating the purchase of a brand new house at the same time for an excellent price, which has already appreciated in value from when we purchased it over a month ago. We would highly recommend Leo to our friends and family as he is an excellent negotiator, extremely knowledgeable and very professional!

"Close friends of ours recommended Leo to us after he had helped them find their dream homes – we were so grateful for the recommendation. Leo was amazing; he went above and beyond to help us quickly find our new place. My husband and I had a moment of panic when our landlord told us he needed his basement suite for personal use and needed us to vacate the suite at the same time we were expecting our first baby. As such, we decided to buy sooner than planned and needed to find somewhere quickly with only two months before our baby was due. Leo was great, he took the time to meet with us to discuss our wants and needs in a place and arranged for us to view multiple properties within days of starting the search. We fell in love with our new home immediately and within a couple of weeks had an accepted offer at a great price (thanks to Leo’s negotiating skills). Leo was professional and personable throughout and took the time to help us as new homeowners to negotiate the process of buying a new home. We can’t thank him enough for all his help."

"My husband and I were first time home buyers, and a little lost when it came to looking for a new home - until we came across Savino Realty. We had a few specific ideals based on our budget and cared a lot about finding a new home in a thriving community, top notch amenities and getting as much living space as possible. Within days of meeting Leo, he was working hard to source out potential areas and properties that would fit our wants and needs. He made what could be a daunting process, very simple, straightforward and exciting! Leo's professionalism, efficiency and knowledge of the industry exceeded both of our expectations. Before we knew it, we were first time home owners of our absolute dream home and have Leo to thank for it! He was also able to negotiate our down payment structure to better fit our budget. We highly recommend Savino Realty to anyone looking to work with the best in the business. "

"Purchasing real estate is incredibly intimidating, especially when you're a single first-time buyer. Leo patiently walked me through the whole process while taking time to address my questions and concerns to ensure that I was comfortable every step of the way. Leo is very personable, easy to talk to and he's a straight-shooter that won't let anyone lead you astray. He's also a great negotiator and we were able to get my new apartment for significantly lower than the asking price. I'll be recommending Savino Realty to all of my friends & family. Thanks again Leo!"
- Matt Stewart
" I just wanted to say I appreciate all the work you did for me over the past couple months. We had our fair share of obstacles but you overcame them all for me. Especially once the flood/insurance incident transpired. You dealt with all the issues to make it a lot less stressful on my part. I am going to recommend you to everyone I know because I was very pleased with the process. Thanks again and can't wait to work with you in the future ! "

“As someone who knew absolutely nothing about purchasing a home, Leo was incredibly patient with me. He took the time to show me several different places to ensure I knew I had options, and he took my list of deal breakers to heart. Not only did he find me the absolute perfect place, but he also managed to negotiate the absolute perfect price for it, all within a week’s time. He made the entire process of purchasing my first home stress free and very exciting! Leo is a fantastic realtor and I would highly recommend him.”
- Meghan Herle
My wife and I were looking for our first home and were in over our heads. Without Leo's help, I don't think that we ever would have bought our place, or get the great price that we did. Mr. Savino was ever patient with us, and not only was he able to answer any and all questions that we had, he put us at ease when he answered them. Leo consistently showed how smart and well versed he is in the real estate market, and when we came across other Realtors, Leo's knowledge and personability were unmatched. I would never use anyone but Leo, and I would not hesitate to recommend Savino Realty to anyone else.
- Mathew Woolley
"Having Savino Realty help us in our property transaction proved to be an excellent decision. In retirement, my wife and I were looking to transition from a large family home to something more manageable for just two people. Simply put, Leo was extremely supportive throughout the whole process, and was especially understanding of my needs. At every meeting, Leo provided us with options specific to our requests, and conducted himself and our business in a manner that put me and my wife at ease, and confident in his abilities. Knowing that I would require specific parking access in our new building, Leo took the initiative to ensure that this need was included as part of the property purchase, all without us asking. In what could have been a stressful transaction at this point in our lives, we are grateful to Leo for making this a smooth and enjoyable experience."

"Leo was very instrumental in helping my family and me find the perfect home. During our search, he was extremely helpful, patient and attentive to our requirements. Even after we had found our home, his support continued, and he was able to guide us through the entire purchase process, from offer to closing and finally possession, during which time he showed proof of his knowledge and expertise. I would not hesitate to recommend Leo to anyone wishing to purchase or sell a home."
- Beverly Diallo
"I met Leo at one of his open houses, I found him to be honest and knowledgeable. I was in the beginning stage of looking for a property, he gave me his card and emailed me with a list of properties within a couple of days. Through the process Leo was always available for viewings and followed up with any questions or concerns I had promptly. Leo’s negotiating skills are excellent. Kind and a good sense of humor wrap it up, and a high recommendation from me to anyone looking for a great Realtor."

"@Savino Realty Well done! I would not have received the price I wanted if it was not for the excellent negotiation abilities of my Realtor Leo Savino!!"
- Nick Graziadei
"Leo, First and foremost I would like to comment on how wonderful it was to deal with you as a realtor. I assure you, this deal would not have gone through if it was not for your honesty, integrity and for being such a straight up great individual that you are. I have done many deals Leo and have dealt with a variety of realtors in my career and I must say you were one of the top realtors I have dealt with. Your good work brought your clients the best deal hands down in that building for today’s market."
- Rahim Lalani
"During the recent sale of my property I was pleased with the commitment and professionalism Leo showed. Leo confidently presented me with a strategy in the beginning, which he executed to perfection obtaining multiple offers and a quick sale. He kept in constant communication throughout the entire process, always willing to listen to my ideas, and keeping me informed of potential interest. Leo's open houses were well organized and he gave me tips on how to prepare my unit to show well to potential buyers. It is without hesitation that I would recommend Leo Savino to anyone looking to buy or sell in today’s market."
