Hillary is the obsessor of details and an agent driven by data. Lovingly nicknamed “The Taskmaster” by her dearest friends, she is known for her tenacious ability to get any job done right. Her analytical and detail-oriented approach leaves clients feeling informed and in charge of the process. But don’t think for a minute that she’s the introverted nerd-type. Clients report back that what they like most about her is her ability to connect and communicate; to listen and understand exactly what is important to each person in their real estate experience.
She began her career as a real estate agent after falling in love with the process of flipping homes with her contractor husband, Tim. Their dream-team combination has given her the edge on maximizing profits and identifying potential investment opportunities. Whether its a renovation or new build, she’s the girl with the intimate knowledge of what it takes to realize the greatest resale potential. Other investment landscapes she is particularly passionate about are income properties. As an investor herself, she is always on top of the most current regulations and considerations.
Hillary lives downtown with her husband Tim and their dog child, Ladybug. When she’s not working her butt off she loves to take advantage of all the city has to offer like trying a new exercise class or checking out a new restaurant. She’s also a big fan of the great outdoors and loves time spent at the cottage. Volunteer work has and still does play a large role in her life. She currently volunteers with the Distress Centre on a suicide prevention line and is the Co-Chair of a Patient and Family Advisory Committee at Sunnybrook Hospital.
“More often than not when a professional service has been made up to my husband and myself the results have been generally successful. We may end up referring that individual to their firm to our family or friends, suggesting they get a few other quotes for good measure. But rarely has a referral managed to exceed all expectations. When it does occur we feel extremely luck to have met that person. Hillary Lane with Sage Real Estate Ltd., fits this latter description.
Hillary was referred to us recently when we made the decision to downsize from our 2.5 storey home to a more manageable space. The thing we noticed immediately was how keen a listener Hillary turned out to be. She didn’t just nod and smile, she really seemed to ‘get us’. The fact that she did understand what we were looking for, reduced our overall stress level and sped up the entire process. Her sense of humour also helped to keep things on an even keel during these unpredictable times in Toronto’s housing market.
Thank you, Hillary. We’ll always be indebted to you for everything you’ve done.”

“We highly recommend Hillary Lane for all your real estate needs. Her knowledge of the Toronto housing market and her well-targeted MLS searches made property hunting that much more efficient. Hillary listened to our housing needs and wants at the outset, made timely adjustments as our home-hunting progressed, and found us the perfect 10 out of 10 we thought was impossible to find. Her skillful negotiations during the offer phase and purchase arrangements were amazing! Hillary is friendly, upbeat and enthusiastic about working for her clients, and we would not hesitate to have Hillary work for us again. She’s the best!”

“I had the most incredible experience using Hillary as my realtor to sell my condominium! After previous terrible experience with another realtor, I immediately appreciated Hillary’s enthusiasm and communication style. She took the time to thoroughly research the condo market in the area and came up with a brilliant marketing strategy. Her attention to detail was impeccable, and she still put in the effort to keep me informed every step of the way, even once the unit had sold!
Speaking of sold – I asked Hillary to try to sell it as quick as she could, and quick she did! We managed to get a price we were thrilled with within 4 days of the condo being listed on the market! Hillary, you’ve got a lifelong client in me, and I am happy to recommend you to everyone I know!”
