Character Homes vs Old Homes. Can you tell the difference?

It all started when I saw my first loft conversion spaces in Leslieville.


After that, handling "average" spaces was no longer my passion. Thanks to 1000s of you who have joined me on tours of lofts and character & modern homes.....I have remained loyal to one of a kind spaces with owners who share this passion. So...when you see my signs in the lawn, you are in for a treat!!


Over the years, I have become more and more enamoured with the process of tracking the history of the properties I am privileged to represent. After many hours at various research centres, I've found out more about the property I was handling than the owners even knew. 


This year alone, I have already had the chance to handle two unique spaces both built in the early 1900s that were converted to incredible loft spaces.


In my area of town (Danforth East/East York), there are a number of homes that come up for sale that are old and not maintained and then there are the "character" homes. The different being it costs money to keep character intact. Whether it's restoring woodwork, stained glass windows, strip hardwood floors.....it takes time and money. 


As the final touches are being put on a well loved home built in approx 1927 that I am listing, I am thankful for these homes that have decades of stories & history to tell (if kept  in good shape, as this one has been).
