By: Jeff Rockwell and Kiersten Trafford, Riverdale Seller 2020

There are some wonderful real estate agents in Toronto and we've used several over the years. But once we tried KJ and Tori, we noticed an incredible difference. We noticed it in their sincerity, kindness and dedication throughout the entire process. We noticed it in their unwavering work ethic and unselfishness (they came home early from vacation to help us, as just one example). And we noticed it in their professionalism and experienced attention to detail (they helped us replace an older, built-in, cracked bathroom mirror as a final, important staging move). We've used them for our last three moves and the experience remained at this incredibly high level. We are excited to recommend KJ and Tori so that you can also enjoy this incredible difference.

By: Ann Martens and Jeff Smylie, Upper Beach Seller 2020

When we made the monumental decision to move out of Toronto and our beloved home and upper beach neighbourhood, we wanted to work with realtors who would help us minimize the stress of such a life-changing decision. Enter, Tori Wright and K.J. Duck. Tori and K.J. have the strategies, prior to hammering that “For Sale” sign into your lawn, to get your home looking its’ best and then developing a marketing plan to maximize interest in your home. Within days we were “Sold”, at a figure that exceeded our expectations. Needless to say, we are extremely glad we chose Tori and K.J.

Tori and KJ are exceptional, fantastic, knowledgeable, experienced Real Estate Agents. I have purchased property 3 times in my life but I had never sold one of them. But when my house was no longer working for me in June 2020, I sold it. Without Tori and KJ I don't know how I could have done it? I had watched them get the house next door ready for sale in 2018 and when I finally decided to sell my home in Toronto after thinking about it seriously for about 5 years! I put myself into the hands and expertise of KJ and Tori. I am so very glad I did that. They connected me with Contractors, a Stager, a Packer, a storage facility, so many people and together we got my home ready to show in mid-June 2020. What a relief to know that I chose the right people with the experience and knowledge to help me with the monumental task of selling my home which I had lived in for 26.5 years. They are a wonderful Team.

KJ and Tori were amazing!! They helped us at every turn, making what seemed overwhelming, easy! They jumped in and did what whatever was required to set our listing up for success! They had all the resources we needed; staging services, painters, a handy-person... Duck Wright also did a fantastic job marketing our home, it had excellent exposure and sold in 3 days! This is our second time working with Duck Wright. Diana & Andrew Fraser

By: Buyers | West End, 2017

We can’t thank KJ enough for all he’s done for us. We couldn’t have gone through the process of purchasing our first home without his knowledge, support and kindness. He was with us every step of the way, always prompt to help and answer our numerous questions. We are beyond happy you came into our lives at such a special moment. We are so proud of the place we got and this wouldn't be possible without you. The only sad part is that we will be missing you. Love, Lara and Loren

What a team! KJ and Tori helped me with the sale of my home from start to successful finish. They helped me navigate the ins and outs of the changing market, and gave great advice. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for knowledgeable, personable and professional realtors.

By: Paul B, Riverdale Seller 2017

I would recommend Tori & KJ to family & friends in a heartbeat. Their overall attention to my needs as a seller was caring, thoughtful and understanding. They understood what I needed and were able to accommodate around my personal home/family logistics while working to get my house on the market easily & efficiently so that I could have a successful sale - which i did. I would rate my experience with them as 5 star, no question.

By: Andrew & Sarah, Riverdale Seller, 2016

Selling a house is daunting at the best of times, but with three small kids, a lot of clutter and an endless list of improvements to make, we were intimidated and overwhelmed at the prospect. Enter KJ and Tori. Our house was quite a project and KJ, Tori and their team executed it perfectly from beginning to the amazing end result. We can’t say enough about what KJ and Tori did for us. Not only were they both fantastic in managing us through the challenging home sale process, but KJ also did a huge amount of hands-on upgrades/improvements to our house (facilitated by his background as a carpenter). Not a day would go by when KJ wouldn’t be at our house managing some part of the sale process, whether it was directing painters, fixing a crooked cabinet, hanging pictures for staging, or walking us through the best strategies for selling our house. And Tori’s background in sales was the perfect complement to KJ, as Tori’s marketing strategy led to our house reaching a wide audience in a very short period of time. I think KJ’s dedication to our family can be summed up by the fact that, on a recent car ride from a weekend away, one of our kids said: “I miss KJ”. We would not hesitate for a second to recommend KJ and Tori to anyone needing assistance from a real estate team.

By: Bill Holy – VP, CIT

KJ's market knowledge was instrumental.for both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our old home. KJ led us through the purchase process, our first competitive bid situation, and secured the winning bid while not overpaying. On the sale of our old home, KJ gauged the market correctly and was able to elicit a competitive bid situation with over ten bidders. As a result we sold our home for 30% over ask. Most importantly, he is easy to work with, responsive, and generally just a nice guy to hang out with.

By: Sarah Osgoode

KJ Duck is an extraordinary real estate agent. In both the buying and selling process, our experience with him was outstanding. In the selling process he gave us the resources we needed to keep the process on track - access to smart and trustworthy trades-people and hands on help every step of the way to get our house on the market for the best price. In the buying process, he found the perfect home for us quickly and efficiently and kept us level headed and well informed so we could make a smart offer in a lucrative market. Thanks KJ!

By: Paul Ashworth, Chief US Economist, Capital Economics

I wouldn't hesitate to use KJ again. He was invaluable when we moved in mid-2010, providing great service on both the buying and selling end. The advice was always smart and it was obvious he had our interests at heart and wasn't just looking to make the quickest commission possible."

By: Leaside Sellers

I would definitely refer KJ. He will make sure that your house is in perfect condition to sell. I thought we were getting the special "family" treatment but from watching him work with other friends I see that everyone gets the "family" treatment. And, he knew the market well and correctly priced our house. I should add his team, James, Bev and the landscape guy were wonderful and did great work!

By: Riverdale Sellers

From the moment we decided to sell to snapping the sold onto the lawn sign KJ was an absolute dream to work with. He made the process completely painless and was supportive and totally available throughout. Above and beyond sums it up. I can’t really say enough. Look no further.

By: Leaside Buyers

KJ exceeded our expectations from day one. The service he provided, everything from the professional advice to the overall project management in preparing our house for the market, secured us top dollar for our home. We strongly recommend KJ to anyone looking for a full-service, professional, honest and hands-on agent.

By: TImothy L, Riverdale

His understanding of the marketplace, sense of style, attention to detail and willingness to work tirelessly from start to completion far surpassed any of my previous agent experiences...I've worked with several realtors over 20 years and half-a-dozen properties and KJ demonstrated all the best qualities of successful agents from the city's top agencies. In addition to his knowledge and work ethic, KJ demonstrated a superior sensitivity and understanding of the human elements of the process. As my house was occupied by a tenant at the time of sale, KJ added considerable value in terms of managing and minimizing the disruption to my tenant, while losing nothing in terms of presentation and access for potential buyers.

By: Lisa & Jo, Riverdale

We would highly recommend KJ, the service and experience we had with him was above and beyond or expectations of working with a Realtor...KJ spent so much time with us going over exactly what happens during the sale of the house. KJ went above and beyond for us to ensure that our house was in the best possible shape it could be for sale. KJ was a very professional and thoughtful agent. He went above and beyond to make sure that the experience was pain free for us. I would highly recommend KJ to any of my friends who are thinking of selling their house.

By: Andrew & Suzanne, Riverdale

Honestly KJ I think we were getting the family treatment here and everything was perfect...We bought in a bidding war and KJ was an excellent and patient negotiator on our behalf - we got our perfect house at a price we were very happy with! KJ was a huge help in getting our house picture perfect to list in a short time. The online listing and brochure were gorgeous! We sold quickly and above asking!

By: Andrew & Carmela, Riverdale

KJ went far and above what we were expecting... He helped us stage our home, move furniture to an offsite location and hire contractors he knew and respected. KJ even went out and bought us a runner for the outside front stairs to add to our home's curb appeal. Everything KJ did for us worked! Our house sold within one week and over asking. KJ’s attention to detail, his calm andreassuring manner and his professional attitude made buying our new home, and selling our old home, a good experience for everyone.

By: Sharon & Trevor, Riverdale

After just one consultation, KJ understood our needs and expectations.... Working with KJ to buy our first house was a positive and fun experience. KJ always made himself available and worked around our busy schedules. His easy-going personality helped ease a lot of our house-hunting stress. Plus, it was a comfort knowing that KJ could answer all of our questions, including post-purchase questions. We always felt like valued customers, both before and after our purchase. We would not be living in our dream home if it weren't for KJ. Thank you, KJ, for all your hard work!

By: Reena, Downtown

When I relocated from Calgary to Toronto, I appreciated the questions KJ asked me. KJ knew where I wanted to live because he took the time to find out what I liked. He's an excellent real-estate agent who didn't mind showing me around a new city. KJ's familiarity with Toronto neighbourhoods and his knowledge of my needs made for a perfect fit when I was ready to buy.

By: Jim & Tracey

We're certain KJ was the right choice! After touring the house we wanted to purchase, we learned that the selling agent had dealt with KJ in the past. She clearly trusted and respected him. I think that's why the bidding and purchasing of our home went so smoothly.

By: Toby & Robin, Cabbagetown

KJ gave us total peace of mind. He knew exactly what needed to be done for us to get top dollar for our home. We sold our house in Cabbagetown within 1 week and it sold over asking. KJ gave us sound and professional advice and helped keep the stress at a minimum.

By: Patrick & Jenna, Dupont & Landsdowne

KJ is the consummate professional. Personable, knowledgable and motivated. His intimate knowledge of the Toronto real estate market helped my family and I find the perfect home at a great time and at a great price. His background in renovation and carpentry was a great asset to us in accurately assessing the time and cost it would take to do the upgrades we had in mind for our new house. KJ is a trustworthy asset in any real estate transaction and I would highly recommend him for your next venture into the market.

By: Ann Smith

Hi, just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited!
