He is busy making a difference in those lives he touches.  Jay was an award winning realtor with Re/Max in the Vancouver area before moving back to Toronto with his wife Brenda to be near children, his elderly mother, close friends and to participate in the vibrant, diverse real estate market here.  Brenda & Jay live between Grenadier Pond & the Humber River in Swansea.

Jay is tons of fun! He’s a mimic with an offbeat sense of humour who can identify a piece of music from the first notes played. Avoid challenging him in a trivia game, especially if it has questions about baseball. Jay has been a fan of the Blue Jays since their first season, attending the Opening Day at Exhibition Stadium. He played baseball and later transferred his enthusiasm to Scoresheet (fantasy) statistical baseball where he manages the league and his own team. Jay's interests include jazz, the Civil War (US) plus WWI & WWII. He knows all the events, has visited battlegrounds and seen the movies more than once. Jay also appreciates a round of golf. He loves dogs, donates to animal charities and those that support recovery in the community plus all that The JKT holds dear.

Some of Jay's Happy Clients - this could be you!

What can we say about Jay Banks other than he is absolutely wonderful. Jay Banks is a very thorough and conscientious gentleman. He did indeed start by listening to us and finding out what it was we were looking for. He is not an aggressive salesman as some can be but rather is very helpful. He made sure that we saw every property that we expressed interest in and
let us make our own decisions. Business matters aside, Jay is also a very nice person who is easy to talk to and has a good sense of humour. Thank you, Jay!

For over 15 years and the purchase and sale of three properties I have found Jay to be professional, ethical, and pleasant to work with. I believe that these qualities have been crucial in both my purchases and sales of properties.

Jay is personable, committed and very responsive. He was willing to spend a lot of time with us as we explored our options over a period of several months. He ensured we had all the information we needed to make informed decisions, and would find an answer to any question we had.
- Diane and Orion

There were many realtors knocking on the door but we knew there was only one man for the job – Jay Banks. Working with Jay on the sale of our home was a real pleasure and his professionalism was wonderful.
- Ed and Carol

We can, without any hesitation, recommend this team for the kind of old fashioned real estate service when the agent actually listened to the client with out simply resorting to a spread sheet of recent transactions. They brought the concept of service right back into the equation. Thank you, Jay and Brenda!
- Bryce Gibney and Lynne Baker
