Hey I’m Dena the newest member of the BREL team! I love keeping busy discovering all the new amazing buildings in Toronto and meeting different people! I have a background in fashion and have always loved working with people and really care about their needs and wants! I get along with everyone and always bring a smile and sense of humour when I am meeting with clients because I know that finding a place to live can be stressful.
I really take the time to get to know the people that I am working with because it is so important to me to develop a relationship and a sense of trust with each person! The best part of my job is when I get a surprise email from someone telling me how much they love there new home and how happy they are! To me bringing happiness to someones life is the most important and I wont stop hustling until I find the perfect fit for every individual!
Dena Shiff is a goddess! She helped alleviate all the stress of apt hunting and helped me land the most phenomenal apartment that surpassed any expectation I could have had in Toronto’s zoo of real estate market. Force of a positivity and a complete doer, she’s very tenacious, very efficient and professional in all her dealings. She’s resourceful, and truly will help you get what you want. I highly recommend working with her, she’ll help you get over the hurdles of settling into a new city and finding a pad to call your own. 15/10 for Dena.

If you are a new kid on the block (like myself), I highly recommend Dena Shiff as your sales representative at the BREL team: She didn’t just give me condo recommendations according to my brief, but she also attended viewings on my behalf while I was out of town. I trusted her judgement so much so, that I signed my lease agreement after only seeing the condo through her iPhone camera. She also exceeded her role of responsibility: You ask for a floorplan before buying furniture. It is in your Inbox within minutes. You ask for furniture shop recommendations and the woman is prepared to look into it for you. 10 out of 10 customer service Dena!

Dena Shiff is our Super Star!!! We are Canadians living in Philadelphia and are moving back to Toronto in two weeks. When we first contacted Dena we had less than 4 weeks to find a place and we were frustrated looking online ourselves for our own place. Also, we could not be in Toronto to look at places so Dena ran around video taping Condos and sending them to us. We have dogs so this was also a task finding a pet friendly place. Dena remained so upbeat, professional and patient through the process. She is funny and sweet and very hardworking. Hooray…we now have a beautiful Condo on the water to move into April 1st! Thank you so much Dena for all of your hard work, we could not have accomplished this without you, you’re the best! We certainly recommend Dena as your Agent.

I had the pleasure to work with Dena back in November of 2015, when I was considering renting a condo unit in Toronto. Dena was terrific. She was always on top of things…always sending me information about condo rentals that were coming on the market. She was professional, dedicated, helpful and really a pleasure to deal with. In the end, I decided on renting an apartment rather than a condo, but Dena made such an impression on me, that I felt it important to let you know what a valued employee you have. I hope you will recognize her for her excellent customer service and the excellent way she gives 100% to her clients.

Myself and my partner recently relocated to Toronto from Ireland, and were feeling a little daunted with the rental scene – However, we then came across the Brel Team and were immediately so impressed! We were in contact with Dena, and I have to say from our first conversation she completely put us at ease and understood what we wanted! She was in constant contact with us, sending possible listings to us, keeping us up to date and considering our needs always. She brought us to several viewings and was so friendly and honest, and so approachable! We found an amazing listing on our first day, and Dena assisted with everything from start to finish, even texting/mailing late in the evenings. Would highly recommend dealing with the Brel Team, but in particular, Dena! Thank you SO much Dena for everything, we are so happy with our apartment, you’re amazing at your job!

Right from the beginning, Dena was so organized and quick to provide so many options and tailor the search to my preferences. Moreover, she was always quick to respond and I always knew that I could count on her to take care of all of the details. Despite the often cold and windy weather, it was always fun seeing places with Dena and I knew that she wouldn’t let me take a bad place or an unfair deal.I’m really happy with my new rental – all of the appliances are installed (what a relief, haha!), the location is great, and I love the view. Dena made everything happen so smoothly with the rental which was the icing on the cake. Thanks again for all of your wonderful work ?

I was overwhelmed with my search for rental properties in Toronto, as was unfamiliar with the city and all it’s different areas!! Dena, from the BREL Team, was so helpful and really gave me a great rundown of the city. She was so available for the entire process, arranged a quick meeting, and I think really got an idea of who I was and what I was looking for. She lined up several options for me and was very honest about the pros and cons of each. I now have a great place in Toronto! I felt very comfortable with Dena and didn’t feel I was being forced into anything, or being manipulated for a quick deal for her. I would highly recommend working with Dena and will definitely contact her again for my future housing needs !!!

Dena Shiff is an efficient, honest, and caring person–it was a pleasure to rent a house with her as my agent. She was very responsive and called, emailed, or texted back just minutes after I posed a question or expressed concern, on a back-and-forth situation with the landlord that went on for several days. I highly recommend her!

Dena Shiff is amazing! We are a family of three adults, who really needed help finding a centrally-located home to rent in Toronto’s West end. We had certain requirements, preferred search boundaries and a serious sense of urgency. Unfortunately we found ourselves needing to secure a new place before Christmas, in order to move mid-January. Dena was efficient, professional, incredibly patient with our endless questions and someone who we instantly became comfortable with. It was clear very early on that she had our best interests at heart and was someone we could really trust. Thank you so very much again Dena! We couldn’t of done it without you!

My wife and I are moving to Toronto this week. I just wanted to say how impressed I have been with Dena Shiff – she has helped us rent a condo Downtown. Dena has been so attentive and prompt in emailing us rental options, and was really helpful when it came to securing the rental with the agreement and paying first and last months rent in advance. We couldn’t have secured a place without her and we will definitely be recommending her to our friends and family (should they also move). Just wanted to say she must be a real asset to you and we are really grateful for all her professionalism and hard work.

Dena did an excellent job and found me a perfect condo to lease! She was very professional and helpful (I’m a first time renter so I needed lots of help!!)
