Real Estate is my business passion. Working with people to find their perfect first or second or third home is a privilege. Knowing that I will guide them through each step of the transaction with skill and knowledge puts my clients at ease. They know they can trust that I will put their best interests first. Skillful negotiation in fast markets and slow is always cause for celebration.
More than twenty three years of helping people that I like and admire has been a gift. It has also given me a great depth of experience and often, friends for life. I can not think of a better career choice.
Community work is my personal passion. Forming and leading Friends of the Beltline since 2010 has introduced me to so many neighbours who share a passion for this amazing green space. To date, we have had four successful clean ups and planted more than 250 native trees and shrubs. More exciting events to come.
Fostering Greyhounds to help them transition from race track to family homes, is satisfying and rewarding. Teaching them to fit into their new lives is an experience that can be challenging, always joyful and a little sad to say goodbye. It’s always a pleasure when they return so families can vacation without concern.
Fundraising for the Minstrel Foundation provides arts and music programs for Inner City youth. As a small group of people who really care about the lives of young people, The Minstrel Foundation can be proud of the work they do. It is an honour to be part of this charity.
In February each year my team and I hit the streets to raise money for The Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Helping you explore your options, fulfill your goals while respecting your wishes.
On behalf of myself and Aviv, I would like to express our heartfelt thanks to you for the impact that you have made on our lives. We are greatly appreciative and grateful to you for the expertise, commitment and genuine human kindness you shared with us throughout the process of selling our condominium as well as the purchase of our house.
With respect to the sale of our condo, we were impressed by your ability to rapidly sell our property. As you know, our previous agent had failed to do so before his contract had expired! Throughout the bargaining process, you were a keen negotiator, demonstrating the ability to listen to our desires, support our wishes and get us the best price for our property. As a result of this experience, you gained our trust and respect.
When it came time for us to find ourselves a new home, we knew that we could count on your support, time and expertise. We were so pleased that you helped us find our lovely home so quickly at such a fair price. Again we were impressed that you were able to secure the deal for below the asking price (especially since we knew the sellers were looking for more).
Donna, you made a stressful time in our lives much easier with your patience, kindness and keen business sense. Our family is so happy in our home. Thank you for your role in making the transition such a pleasant one.
All the best,
Jessica Naves Gladman and Family
Thank you for your effort in the sale of my parents home at 28 Dresden Rd. We appreciate the professional manner in which you completed this transaction.
But most of all we appreciate the help extended to our family during a very trying period. You do your job well, but more important, you are a caring friend.

I have recently been involved in selling an awkward set of properties. Fortunately, however, I listed it with Donna Koegl. She has been professional, efficient, conscientious and a genuine pleasure to deal with. She found a buyer only days after the properties were listed. Thereafter, despite extraordinary difficulties, she facilitated every step along the way toward bringing this deal to fruition with a positive attitude and confident demeanour. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
Yours very truly,
Cosmos Ind. Elect. Ltd.
Dear Donna, Thank you for all your hard work and diligence during the sale of my house and also for the guidance you provided in the purchase of my new home. You helped me to steer clear of any pitfalls that can occur during the selling/buying process.
Your help in preparing my previous property before selling and the care that was taken in pricing the property, also greatly contributed to it’s marketability.
Should I hear of anyone looking for a helpful and trustworthy realtor, I would certainly be comfortable in recommending your services.
With kind regards,
To Whom It May Concern:
In less than a week, Donna Koegl helped us sell a house that had failed to sell twice before. Her honesty, thoroughness and helpful advice made the entire experience a pleasure. Not only did she do a terrific job for us, but she managed to win the respect and cooperation of our tenants who had nothing but praise for the way she worked with them to accommodate their needs.
As a result of her advice on how to price the house, we received multiple offers – all above the asking price. The final selling price was 4% above the asking price – much more than we had expected.
Donna is persistent without being pushy and considerate without being condescending. She works efficiently and takes charge of all the myriad details that go into preparing and selling a house. We are extremely thankful that she found us and encouraged us to put the house back on the market.
The first thought that comes to mind is, Thank You, Thank You very much for the work you have put forward to accomplish the sale of our house at ¬145 Lindsey Ave, Toronto.
This of course is not enough, so therefore I want you to know that if you wish to use my name of give my number to anyone as a reference, I will be very pleased to detail the very professional and warm ways in which you helped us achieve our goal of selling our home.
I do not often admit to being wrong, but had I taken your expert advice as to pricing our home realistically in view of the present market conditions, I’m now sure that the sale could have been made quicker than it was and probably I would, have had a saner home front existence.
Hindsight is a powerful persuader but it is usually available too late, I hope that next time I won’t make you work so hard to accomplished our goals, rest assured that for as long as you are in the business you can count on my business.
Thank you again,
