  1. Hi there,
    Great site, really enjoy reading them! Just wondering if you have any experience working in North York area, eg yonge & Sheppard, which I did not find (or I’ve overlooked) under the neighbourhoods section? I see most of your listings are either detached or semi, do you work on townhome or condo projects?
