Karyn Filiatrault is anything but a traditional realtor. Formerly a documentary producer at the Discovery Channel, she left the television industry to fill a much foreseen gap in the Toronto real estate market. What falls in that gap, you ask? Realness, to start. Because let’s be honest, who can deal these days with a stiff suit?
Secondly, she brings some serious creativity to the table. Karen employs the experience of her former career by using professional cinematographers, hand-picked acting talent, and a story-boarded script to sell homes. That’s right – she writes and produces the production of a unique real estate lifestyle film about your equally unique property, to ensure that your place sells faster (and at a higher price point) than it otherwise would with anyone else.
Karyn has been featured on CBC, Global TV, CTV, Newstalk 1010, Toronto Life, The Toronto Star, BlogTO, HGTV and The Globe and Mail for her unique selling strategy that clients love – “The thought, energy, and creativity that she put into producing the lifestyle video for our home was unbelievable. It helped sell our place in a week and for WELL over asking!”
Karyn is frequently called upon by the media for expert advice, has international sales experience and holds two professional negotiation designations, including a master certified negotiation certificate from the Real Estate Negotiation Institute. Whether working with first-time millennial buyers or seasoned investors, Karyn brings warmth to an energetic commitment when working with her esteemed clientele, to ensure that their needs are addressed, met, and exceeded; always with honesty and integrity.
Karyn is also a mom. And a very proud one at that. Her young son, Max, mutually shares his mother’s love for adventure, sports and the outdoors. You’ll find them together at the local hockey arena, behind the wheel of the fastest and most out of control go-cart, running through waterparks in their bathing suits, cheering enthusiastically for the Toronto Blue Jays and working their way through a 20 year travel bucket list. Max currently aspires to help his mother’s real estate team out in the future as the resident dump truck driver.
