In the past five months, we bought our first house, sold our condo and found tenants for our rental property – yikes! Oh and did I mention we have a baby? But somehow we have yet to experience the level of stress that most people report coming with tackling the Toronto real estate market. It all happened quickly, efficiently and painlessly, thanks to Anil.
We met Anil in the Summer of 2012 at an open house where he was the listing agent. We were so impressed with how he could be both super professional and easy going at the same time - he was exactly what we were looking for in an agent and we were lucky to have fallen upon him. For the next year, Anil checked in on us to keep the relationship going, but never in a pushy way. When we were finally ready to buy our first house in the late spring of 2013 and sell our condo of course we went with Anil.
We were pretty specific about what we were looking for - as I'm sure most people are - and Anil helped us stay true to our vision. When looking at houses he would ask us if he wanted him to comment or just leave it up to us, but we found his opinions and input helpful and kept us from going astray from what was best for our small family.
In two and a half months, we bid on three houses in a very competitive downtown market and got the third one. It really was the perfect house for us and we couldn’t believe how quickly and stress free it all happened. Immediately after we got working on selling our condo. Anil had great advice on how to edit and stage our place and gave us a good idea of the timeline we would need to work with. He has an amazing photographer he works with and we were so happy with the sale package he put together. Again, the sale process was fast and relatively easy. We were able to just let go and actually relax because we knew Anil was in the driver seat and it would all work out.
The last step was to find tenants for an apartment in our new property and Anil took care of the whole process and again it was super fast and we got exactly what we wanted. He knows the city, he knows the business and he has a good feel for people. It was also pretty cool to be complimented by different agents we met along the way about what a great person and agent Anil is. It’s true.
Now all that is left to do is enjoy our new life! I know we will be staying in touch with Anil and recommending him to people we know.

We met Anil at an open house in our neighbourhood and he immediately made a great impression on his. Approachable, warm and funny – we felt very comfortable talking to him and a few months later – when we were ready to buy, he was definitely on our shortlist of candidates as our real estate agent.
Anil made the search for our home very easy. He listened to our what our needs (and wishes!) were and made sure we were looking at places that made sense for us and our budget. Having said that, there were many things that we hadn’t thought of – and that is where his expertise came in. Anil always made sure that we were considering different options.
Finding a home is no easy task. We were very surprised as to how competitive the market was. But Anil was always diplomatic and reassuring (even when tears were shed). One of the things we appreciated most was how determined he was. In the event when we were outbid (due to our budget constraints), Anil always persevered and we could count on him sending us new listings for review the very next day. We are thrilled with our new home.
Even now, Anil has always taken upon himself to call us up or stop by to see how our renovations were doing and offer up a contact from his laundry list of suppliers – from plumbers to painters to contractors. We are so pleased with all of his guidance throughout the entire experience and we are even more happy to now call him a friend.

I think of Anil in much the same way that Dante must have thought about Virgil. For buying a house in Toronto can be a protracted, hellish process filled with subterranean surprises for the uninitiated, and one needs a steady trustworthy guide so as to steer clear of the perils and pitfalls.
In the end though, our paradise was found. A steal of a spacious semi detached - with a rentable basement apartment - in a central neighbourhood for a reasonable price bought in what's since proven to be one of the most unreasonably priced market months in memory (May 2013).
Anil was an invaluable and patient guide who, over six months, steered us clear of trouble and overpriced real estate, past the disappointments of failed bids, and helped us find the right home.
My only regret since buying the house is we no longer see Anil waiting for us in his car, ever attentive cheerful and ready to help us in the hunt.
Andrea and Matt
My partner and I were first-time home buyers entering the market with little insight into the often overwhelming process that is selecting a home. From the start, Anil always made himself available to us and promptly responded to any concerns we brought to his attention. What we appreciated most was his ability to break down the steps and convey the complexities of the home-buying process in a language we could both understand. Anil worked within our schedules to close on a home and offered his network of contacts to get the ball rolling. We are really happy to have worked with Anil and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable, personable and informative real estate agent.

Anil has stuck with me for years, patiently showing me places to meet my large list of needs. He always gave me advice on each property explaining how it would be a good investment (I was never shown bad investment property). I'm not a first time home buyer but Anil found me my first home. We have become great friends over the years and even found a property to flip as a side project! I'm sure we'll be investing in more property in the future.

We first met Nutan through our good friend Debbie, who had worked with Nutan to buy her first place. Debbie couldn’t say enough good things about her, and we were convinced she sounded like the right person to help us relocate to the east end in Toronto. Nutan worked tirelessly to help us sell our then current home, and helped us relocate to a friendly family neighbourhood in the Upper Beaches. It was during this time we also had the pleasure of meeting her wonderful brother Anil, an expert in east-end properties who helped us explore and discover this part of town.
A few years passed, and we jumped at an opportunity to relocate to beautiful Vancouver, BC. We had to move quickly, and decided to try our hand at being remote landlords – something we did for a year, but didn’t feel was right for us. After deciding to stay in BC permanently, we knew we would sell our Toronto house, and the only logical thing to do was to contact Nutan. She and Anil worked tirelessly to get our home ready for sale while we were absent. They overcame many challenges on our behalf, and we are forever grateful for their patience, guidance, expertise, professionalism and overwhelming kindness.
I would recommend Nutan and Anil to anyone – they are trustworthy, talented and generous agents who are extraordinarily kind-hearted and fun too.
Thank you so much for everything. We look forward to seeing you anytime you’re on the West Coast!
Emilie and Hichem
We were looking for a place to lease for our bakery and this is how we met Anil. We didn’t end up renting the place he was representing but we decided to ask him to help us buy a place instead. Anil was always very honest with us and always wanted our best interest. He helped us and came with us to visit multiple retail places and was always doing all the research to make sure we knew all the details before we committed. With his recommendation, we purchased the commercial building at 1576 Queen Street East and I am glad that we had his advice to help us make the best choice. His patience and friendly attitude makes him a reliable and knowledgeable sales representative whom I would recommend to anyone.
Anil helped me find a great condo in a great neighbourhood. I really appreciated his patience and his expert guidance through the process of understanding the market. He was full of good advice and insights. Anil is professional, honest, and a really great guy.
Dalia and Robert
Anil stands out as an agent with notable ability to figure out, in very intelligent ways what clients want; what they consider most important; what they are still not certain about. He not only knows how to translate that into effective home searches but also into a no-pressure home buying experience that all along the way shows deep respect for clients as human beings rather than just customers.
Susanne and Katie
We had it all figured out. The plan was to go to several open houses and look at the agents as closely as we did the houses. From there, create a list of three to five agents that we could imagine ourselves working with and meet them, individually, for an interview of sorts. Knowing that a search for a home can take months or even years, we really wanted our agent to be someone we were comfortable with.
Anil Khera was the first and only agent we interviewed. As we walked away from our initial meeting with him at a coffee shop on the Danforth, we couldn't think of a single thing that he didn't have that we would be looking for in the other agents. He was extremely knowledgeable about the downtown Toronto neighbourhoods we were considering and willing to find out more about the Mimico area when we (briefly) expressed interest in living there. He has a firm grip on the myriad of financial details around buying a home and the expertise to clearly explain it all to us as first time home buyers and, he has a solid network of mortgage brokers, contractors and lawyers that he works with. Working with Anil is a full service experience.
Above all, he is calm. Despite the challenge that we presented to him with our tight budget and great expectations, Anil simply got down to the business of making it happen. He provided a calm and reassuring presence as we rode the emotional rollercoaster that is Toronto real estate. He listened, he understood and he worked hard for us. We couldn't ask for anything more.
Thank you very very much for the amazing work and support you have provided to us. I believe it was fate that our paths crossed when they did and I don't think another agent could have helped us through this process the way you have. I am very grateful.
We bought a commercial-residential building on Queen St E in Toronto and Anil helped us a lot in that process. For us, being from another province and buying commercial for the first time, he went way over his duty and gave us many advices to make that purchase a success.
For sure, Anil and Royal Lepage will be our partners for all our future transactions.

Clifford and Sarah
Anil helped us find a great condo rental in virtually no time at all. We really appreciated his patience, friendliness and expertise in the Toronto market. He went over the lease item-by-item with us and he helped negotiate more favourable terms for us.
If we're looking to buy in the future, he'll be the first call we make.
Thank you very much indeed for your excellent job selling David's house--you and your team made it look fantastic! We all really appreciate your work.
You were most generous to help us get this deal done and the
outcome is definitely excellent.
Congratulations, and again many thanks!
Veronica and John
We met Anil at an open house almost two years ago. Even though we were thinking about working with another agent at that time, we really liked how Anil took a sincere interest in our desire to find our “beloved” home. We were not easy clients: at that time we were living in Alberta and we wanted to buy a house in Oakville for relocating. This meant that we had very tight schedules for meeting Anil in Toronto and seeing houses.
Anil was extremely sensitive to our needs and tight schedule. He always met with us at our convenience and made the experience of buying a house “out-of-province” quite painless. He kept us up to date with every development in the transaction and was kind enough to take care of all miscellaneous details that made our experience quite enjoyable.
In addition of having a great expertise in real estate, Anil also has a network of excellent professionals that assisted us in all the aspects of the transaction. He recommended us professionals for dealing with the home inspection and the legal aspect of the transaction, and both were outstanding.
We are very lucky to have met Anil and he has become our "go-to-person" for any future real estate transaction we may have in the future. We would actually be happy to recommend Anil to any person looking for a real estate agent in Toronto or Oakville!
I met Anil Khera almost four years ago when my wife at the time and I were thinking about selling our home and moving into something bigger and more family oriented. I happened to enter into an open house where Anil was hosting and immediately knew that my wife and I would be working with him in the future. Anil’s demeanor was very humble and knowledgeable; traits I haven’t seen in combination all that often when it comes to agents.
For the next little while Anil was extremely patient in showing us a variety of homes and advising us on how to move forward with selling ours at the best price. Due to the fact that we have very picky tastes, Anil continued to work with us for about 2 years in showing us many different areas and styles of homes.
In the end our marriage failed and we had to sell our home for very different reasons. The separation was extremely messy and as a result my wife insisted on having representation for both of us separately. Anil still accepted to work with me and made selling my home extremely painless in a time of so much turmoil. He went above and beyond helping me in areas that were way out of his job description. With Anil’s hard work we successfully sold the house for top dollar at a bad time of year and under less than desirable circumstances.
Anil is a considerate, kind and knowledgeable real-estate agent and a friend. Over the years we have become good friends, and that is the type of person I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for help in the real-estate world.

We really appreciate your professionalism and kindness, both of which were essential in helping us through the long process of buying and selling real estate.
Rob, Leslie and Callum
Anil was terrific to work with. I appreciated his calm and straightforward manner. He made some great suggestions regarding things I could do to prepare the house for resale, and then he took an interest in making sure some of those things got done. From hiring a great photographer to organizing the cleaning staff, Anil went beyond what I had anticipated a real estate agent would do to help out with - he even knew a very nice stone mason to fix the parging on the exterior. Every step of the way, it seemed that Anil had a good crew of people he could call for assistance.
Having never sold a house before, I was in unfamiliar terrain, but Anil patiently walked me through the process. In hindsight, it is clear that everything went very much as Anil had predicted. From the preparation schedule, to the price the house sold for, to the amount of time before it sold, Anil seemed to have predicted it all.
Above all though, Anil is just a nice, trustworthy guy.
Thank you so much for all that you have done for us. I also think about how things unfolded in terms of our meeting and then finding this place and all of the work that has gone into making it happen and I am really touched.
Ron would tell me that the universe was conspiring on our behalf and he is correct...
You've not just been an agent to us, but more importantly you have been a trusted advisor and a friend that has tried to direct us in our best interests. This has been invaluable and I cannot express to you how much it means.
Pauline and Steve
We met Anil at one of his open houses on a Sunday afternoon. He was both professional and laid back and we immediately took to his warm and friendly personality. We asked for his help in finding a new home and selling our current home and he went to work tirelessly right away. Our current house needed some renovation and Anil was able to recommend highly professional individuals who got our home market ready. We were very happy with the results and cost of the work done.
Our new housing needs were specific and as we searched Toronto for months together, it seemed like Anil had become family. He was always interested, patient and positive when it seemed like we would not find something that suited our needs.
When Anil sent us the listing of what is now our new home, it just proved again that he had been listening very carefully to what we were saying.
We also very much appreciated how calmly and smoothly Anil was able to guide us through the process of buying and selling a home. His advice was always right on and we are thrilled with the new home we now live in.
Thank you Anil!
I was first introduced to Anil this past summer through his sister and business partner Nutan Brown. I'd previously had the pleasure of working with Nutan when selling my home in Bloor West Village. So when the time came for my family to relocate again, I did not hestiate to call her.
However, this time I was on a quest to move out of the hassle and bustle of the city and retreat east to more tranquil haunts., more specifically the lovely town of Stouffville, Ontario.
Nutan advised me that Anil lived in and was more familiar with the east end and therefore more available to show me around that part of the GTA.
And so our journey began and it was an interesting one! We had a few challenges to work with along the way to finding the "perfect house" and each one was met and overcome by the knowledge, perseverance and professionalism of Anil. He went above and beyond his job description to make sure that everyone involved in the entire process delivered on what was expected and promised. I cannot say enough about his patience, communication and negotiation skills and would not hesitate to recommend him in the future.
Jennie and Andrew
We had just started thinking about buying a house and met Anil when we requested a viewing of one of his listings. That particular house wasn't for us, but Anil made a terrific impression -- laid back, interested but not pushy, honest, and knowledgable. We called him to ask if he would work with us on the purchase of our new home, and the sale of Andrew's condo. He listened to what we wanted, showed us a variety of places, and we ultimately chose a home that we'd seen before but thought was out of reach -- Anil helped negotiate the purchase and made the transaction with the vendors friendly and smooth. As for Andrew's condo sale, it closed without trouble in the time frame we needed. His advice was honest and sound, and he remained patient, understanding and warm throughout. We found Anil to be helpful and reassuring and ultimately, a great advocate to have on our side.
Tracey and Rob
Anil was tireless his quest to find us the perfect house, working day and night on our behalf to make sure he found us a home that met all our needs. Once we had made our decision, he sold our existing property in one day! We enjoyed our time with Anil so much during our real estate transactions that he is now a member of our extended family. We value his integrity, his honesty, his dedication, his knowledge and his friendship.
Odin and Nyla
Early this summer we starting actively looking for a property (going to open houses, surfing the MLS listings weekly, etc.) but hadn't committed to a real estate agent yet. We happened to stumble across an open house, and that's where we met Anil. As he handed us the listing and we glanced at the price (something like $1.2 million), we felt out of our league. We nonetheless told him we were looking to purchase something in the area, but for much less. So I left him my email address, and a couple of days later we started receiving listings (in mid-May).
From the moment we starting asking to see some of these properties, Anil was nothing but courteous, attentive, and patient. We must have visited at least 20+ locations and all the while Anil would offer us helpful and honest advice. What we also appreciated is that he never asked us to sign any agreement tying us to him for an eternity (as some of those contracts do). This means we could have walked away and seen another realtor at anytime, and he would have essentially wasted his time with us. But that's where the difference began: it was about mutual trust, respect, and confidence from the beginning. He would meet us at the various locations along the Danforth, on occassion driving us if it was more convenient, and never did or said anything to pressure us or hurrying us up, even after months of searching, and our changing our minds several times.
While we had met other realtors in the past, we are very happy that Anil helped us purchase our new home (at the end of Septmeber). He even recommended other professionals for the home inspection, and eventually, renovations, roofing, etc. all of which have demonstrated the same level of integrity, honesty and professionalism as Anil. From our first meeting to closing the deal, Anil was well-informed, honest, courteous, and after some time we even felt he was like a an old friend more than our real estate agent. Thanks for all of your help Anil!
I found Anil through one of his listings over two years ago and he has been the most patient, informative real estate agent i've ever worked with. He has taken me to see many places and made sure i was happy and well informed with my purchase.
Since meeting him, he has not only gained my trust as my agent, but now as a great friend.
Sandra and Ray
After making a difficult decision to move Toronto from the east coast we began looking at the local market on our own and while at an open house met Anil in the fall of 2010. Anil was very responsive to us straight away. Being new to the market in Toronto, Anil took the time to thoroughly explain the local market conditions and conventions. We felt his knowledge was accurate and well presented in a very factual manner. As we had very specific requirements for the property and an absolute budget, Anil was patient and supportive as we "tested the waters" of this market. After more than 20 houses and a couple of failed offers, patience paid off and we were sucessful in our purchase. We would be pleased to recommend Anil to anyone in need of an agent.
I sold my Oakville townhouse with Anil Khera in an amazing 8 hour time frame! Obviously this is not the norm, but I will explain why I know Anil played a critical role. First, Anil was very honest and open on what I needed to do to make the house more appealing for the sale, which I followed up on with his help. Second, we openly discussed price and market value. We came to a price that was slightly under similar homes in the same area, knowing that the other homes had many more features like finished basement and hardwood floors (of which my home had neither). Third, prior to listing Anil advised agents throughout the region..this generated almost immediate showings once it was listed. When we did open, our price generated a lot of interest and eventually competitive bidding and negotiating by Anil got us a sale significantly above asking price and comparable to the price of homes with more features that sold a month ago.
Without hesitation, I highly recommend Anil Khera to anyone buying or selling a home.

We met Anil at an Open House and were immediately impressed with his simultaneous honesty and helpfulness and this continued throughout the process of purchasing our first home with Anil as our agent. It was really important to us to work with someone who understood the reasons why we love Toronto and help us to find a home in a neighbourhood that made sense for our lifestyle and needs – Anil fit the bill perfectly. He listened, understood the qualities we hoped for in a home, and presented to us our options, helping us to narrow in on the perfect place for us. Anil always made himself available to us and was patient with our many questions and our sometimes trepidation. When we found the perfect home and pursued purchasing it, we saw that Anil was consistently advocating for us and looking out for our best interests. We’re very pleased that we had the chance to work with him as our agent and are thrilled with the results of doing so.
When we started house hunting earlier this year, my friend/colleague recommended Anil as he was very pleased with Anil's work as his buying agent – and looking back, I am glad that I chose Anil. I was impressed with Anil’s responsiveness – from my first call, Anil was quick to respond, and this continued throughout our home buying experience. Anil quickly understood the type of home that we were looking for within our price range and showed us a lot of great candidates. He gave us good advice and didn’t try to pressure us in any way – I definitely came to trust Anil. When we did find ‘the one’, Anil helped ensure we got it for a fair price. He negotiated for us to make sure he arrived at the best deal and conditions for us, and spared us back-and-forth negotiations. And even after the deal was finalized, we continued to receive updates and advice from Anil on how to appropriately close the transaction, and we appreciated his advice about working with the bank, home inspector, lawyer and insurance. We also appreciated that he acted on our behalf with the vendor's agent to answer our questions about the house for insurance purposes, and to ensure that the vendors left the house in an acceptable condition.
I was referred to Anil by someone who Anil worked for as a buyer's agent. Anil helped me purchase my new home and sell my condo. With regards to being my selling agent, I am very pleased with Anil's expertise in helping me set a realistic plan to prepare the condo for showing, recommending things I need to do, setting an appropriate asking price, conducting open houses and showings, and binding the sale in less than 2 weeks after it was listed. I was astounded by how well he made my condo show in the marketing brochures and on MLS! I am also very pleased with the focused attention I received from Anil, as he always sends me up-to-date market information on condo sales in my area to help me focus on what I need to do to sell it, and was available to answer any questions or concerns that I had, replying to my emails or phone calls promptly. I felt he was always working for me with my best interest in mind - he negotiated the selling price very well on my behalf so that I did not have undergo endless back-and-forth negotiations, and he always gave me the pros and cons of any critical decisions I had to make. Although he would gently offer his professional opinion, he allowed me the space to make my own decisions.
Over the process, I have learned to trust Anil's advice and judgement and now I am enjoying the rewards! Thank you so much Anil.
Selecting Anil Khera as my Realtor was a sound decision. Anil was very patient and spent the time to get to know me, what I liked and what I did not like. This enabled him to be selective in the potential properties he presented to me.
In addition, Anil was able to provide informative and relevant responses to the many questions I had about the market in general as well as property specific enquiries
Anil's focus was to find the right home for me and not just any home for the sake of completing a sale. Once the right home was identified, Anil was able to provide advice and guidance through the purchase process, offering explanations and solutions to my concerns.
I am very pleased with my recent home purchase.
I would and will recommend Anil as a realtor to potential buyers or sellers.
Naseem Shaikh and Nadir Hirji
Thanks so much Anil, I never made it out to see the house yesterday (I think I was a little overwhelmed to see it in the rain!). Nadir and I did however go out celebrating last night, we cannot believe we are home owners (gulp)!
I'm still too overstimulated to sleep in and so I thought to share with you our mutual appreciation and this sense of whimsical anti-climactic excess now that the hunt for our home is over - a hunt that brought us close in a relationship where real emotions could be shared in a safe and trusting relationship. Thank you for trusting us on our word, and that in doing so, please know you won our steadfast loyalty.
It has been such a great experience getting here, and even at points when we just thought we should give up for now, you kept us going and you kept our spirits high - thank you so much for that, and for getting it right! Your choice pickings and their refinement are a testament to the fact that you really listened to what we wanted and got to know us, even as it continued to change and evolve. Whether you are aware of it or not, we came to put a lot of weight on places you felt would be worth or waste of our time. But you also made this experience fun and kept the stress to a minimum. I could say 'I am going to miss you' - because I truly would, but you have certainly not seen the last of us :)

We met Anil at an open house when searching for a home in the Riverdale area. We had talked to a few other agents, but had by far the best feeling from our interaction with Anil, so approached him to act as our buyers agent.
The first thing that strikes you about Anil is his warm personality and his remarkable patience in guiding you through the hurdles. This was our second time purchasing, but this was a far more positive experience than the first. During the whole process, Anil had a happy knack of knowing just how hard to push for a resolution. He has an uncanny intuition for market prices, coupled with a keen sense for understanding the dynamic of the sale. He is super responsive - prepared to go out of his way to get you in the right place at the right time - and is willing to assist in any aspect of the real estate or legal process.
We would not hesitate to recommend Anil to anyone considering real estate services in the Toronto area. The difference in our experience was that he would listen to our priorities and tailor his services to meet our goals, rather than just try to push us into the first property we stepped into. You quickly get the sense that Anil genuinely cares about the people he works with, and want to see you get the right home for you or your family.
No matter how many times you go through it, the process of buying a home can be stressful and tiring. Anil actually made the experience fun and rewarding!
I first met Anil at an open house he was hosting. I was immediately taken by his warm and approachable personality. So it didn't take me long to decide who I was going to call when I needed an agent to help me find a condo.
Anil was helpful and approachable right from the get-go. Always prompt, professional and polite, his smile readily puts you in good cheer. On our first appointment, upon discovering that I do not own a car, Anil offered to pick me up from work and subsequently from my home or from any location I was at.
During the course of my condo search with Anil, he was there to guide, explain and answer questions. He has a way of advising without making you feel that you are obliged or pressured into doing anything he suggested. He was always patient and calm, always kept his word and returned my calls and emails in good time. As a result of his efficient and prompt service, I found my condo in less than a month after having no success for almost a year!
Apart from his professionalism, Anil is an agent who goes beyond the call of duty. If his in-purchase service speaks to his professionalism, his after-sales service reveals the personal traits of Anil that reflects his kind-hearted values and commitment to humanity and community. Understanding the challenges that I was facing, Anil gave so generously of his time to help me with the daunting task of moving and even used his own vehicle many times to the effect. He was always ready to offer constructive suggestions and solutions to make things happen. In doing so, he became not only an "agent," but a friend. Simply put, I couldn't have done it without him.
Anil sets the bar for who and what a real estate agent should be. I am no doubt grateful to Anil in so many ways and I write this note to express my heart-felt gratitude and to offer my highest recommendation to anyone in search of a trusted agent who delivers and who cares. I have no qualms that Anil will thrive and soar in his field. I wish him much success!!! You go, Anil!!!

Anil is a fantastic real estate agent, excelling in his professionalism and knowledge in the Toronto real estate market. I was a first-time home buyer and after my initial discussion with Anil, he immediately captured all my requirements and the types of houses I was looking for. He was diligent in searching out options in different areas, and showed me houses that turned out to be all great prospects. I found the ideal house in less than 2 weeks. Anil guided me step-by-step during the bidding process, and provided guidance in closing and settlement. He made things clear and simple, and was honest and upfront in his dealings with his clients. If you want to find your dream house with someone who provides excellent client services, Anil is your choice.

We bought our first place with Anil. In this fast paced market, properties come and go away in a heart beat. It was a stressful experience for us, but Anil was very patient and took us through the process step-by-step. Buying or selling a place involves a lot of work before and AFTER the transaction date. One needs a professional to take care the whole process, before and after. Anil can do this.
Finally, I will write this for him:
A....Act as your first mate in your uncharted deep ocean
N....Never leaves your behind in the middle of a junction
I......If you ever decide to go into a real estate action
L.....Let him take care of you and be your trusted agent

We would highly recommend Anil to anyone looking for a new home or to sell their current residence. What we really appreciated was that Anil was always available for us; Anil quickly responded with new listings and insight on any questions we had (from financial to the ins & outs of home inspections). He was able to go above and beyond the level of service that any of our friends had received from their agents. Anil came up with a focused search for our new home based on our wants and needs, resulting in us finding the perfect home for our growing family, in a minimal amount of time and for under our anticipated budget. Furthermore, with Anil’s help, our previous home sold within four days of being on the market for the asking price.

As a family that has lived in multiple provinces and that has had their fair share of real estate transactions in the past few years, it was a pleasure to work with Anil Khera. Anil is a true professional that has a family first philosophy. Urgent to get you into a home but always ensuring that the buyer is 100% comfortable with the purchase. Anil was very proactive with us and his communication skills were extremely strong and yet we never felt pressured into making a decision that we did not want to make. He made the entire experience easy. In my opinion, the true measurement of a good real estate agent is what happens next..... and for us, Anil Khera will always be invited to enjoy a refreshing Stella Artois, I may even give him a key!

I met Anil Khera at an open house this past August and was immediately impressed with his professionalism. While the open house property he was showing was too small for my son’s needs, he listened to what was required and was very responsive in arranging for other property viewings, taking us out on showings within days of our first meeting.
After having worked with many real estate agents over the past 27 years as a buyer and seller, I recognized very quickly that Anil was impeccably responsive in his communication; returning calls and emails promptly, emailing suitable listing within 24 hours of our first meeting, and soon after in his listing of one of our properties.
Once we agreed on a listing date, Anil made recommendations on how to rearrange the furnishings to enhance the condo’s features, provided a listing price that maximized agent/buyer interest and a marketing plan that included his professional photographer ensuring great feature sheets and internet photo coverage were provided.
Anil made sure all the necessary details for appointment setting were covered to our satisfaction and the Royal Lepage staff provided excellent service to support his sales service.
While we hoped for close to asking, we were thrilled to receive multiples offers. Anil handled this potentially stressful situation with ease and helped us negotiate a selling price over our asking price!
Equally important was the post-sales service. Between handling the final documentation signings, arranging the purchaser visitations and re-negotiating a new closing date, Anil provided excellent and patient service.
We currently live in Richmond Hill and are interested in moving back downtown one day in the future. Anil offered to email us listings based on our preferences so that we familiarize ourselves with the current offerings and sales trends in our desired community.
We would definitely recommend Anil to our friends and family for any of their Real Estate needs. During our meetings, we had to opportunity to hear about his family, travels, and his love of downtown Toronto. We found him to be an enthusiastic, warm and genuine caring individual.
We are not sure when we will sell or buy our next property, however we are sure that when the day arrives, we will most definitely be calling on Anil to make the next sale as successful as this past has been!

We first came across Anil at an open house and were taken by his warm personality and willingness to answer all of our questions. He was informative and knowledgeable of the local market, which was a tremendous asset. Since we were looking for a real estate agent and got such a good feeling about Anil, we decided to take a chance with him.
It was well worth it!
While searching for our new home, Anil was always available and ready to show us new places as soon as they were listed. He would manually search for new properties instead of just adding us to an automatic home search. Anil was very responsible and returned all our calls/e-mails promptly. His readiness and availability helped us find a great home in a highly desirable area while competing against 5 other offers.
During the whole process Anil was professional and honest, never pushing us to make a rushed decision. He listened carefully to all of our needs and made the experience of selling and buying a house very enjoyable. Through his guidance and knowledge we managed to sell our previous home with multiple offers within 1 day of it being on the market!
Not only was Anil a wonderful real estate agent but he also became a good friend who went over and beyond what we expected. We were extremely grateful to have him help us move into our new home! We would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Many thanks to Anil Khera for making the purchase of our first home such a positive experience.
My wife and I first met Anil in January 2009 when the thought of jumping into the real estate market was still a new and uncertain idea. While exploring potential neighbourhoods one afternoon, we came across of a trail of open house signs which led us to Anil.
At first meeting, we recognized Anil’s patient and kind demeanour. We soon admitted that we were just starting our house hunt, and that we had a lot to learn. As we toured the house, Anil’s friendly manner put us at ease and we found ourselves comfortable asking all of the elementary questions that were coming to mind. In the end, we agreed that we would be happy to receive any listings that Anil thought would interest us, though we wanted some time to arrange financing before getting deep into the house hunt.
A few weeks later when our financial ducks were in line and we had seen some listings that grabbed us, we began a full fledged hunt that spanned many areas of the city. Anil was very generous with this time, sometimes spending full days chauffeuring us around to suitable listings that matched our criteria. As the process continued, we got to know Anil quite well. We learned quickly that Anil was not only a hard-working and motivated real estate agent, but also someone who kept our best interests in mind and someone we felt we could trust. We tested Anil’s skills as not only as a real estate agent, but also as a consultant and counsellor, looking sometimes for an unbiased third party to help us through our own decisions, and other times for his personal thoughts and opinions to guide us in the right direction. Anil consistently approached our questions with a thoughtful manner and an understanding of what we were going through as first time home buyers. We feel he always gave his honest opinion and offered sound advice, and we know that the last thing he wanted was for us was to end up with a house that wasn’t right for us.
When we finally found a house that we were ready to make an offer on, things had to happen quickly. By the second day that the house was on the market, there were three interested parties, and offers were to be presented that evening. Despite the time crunch, Anil maintained his patience as we tentatively made our own decisions. During the bidding process, Anil presented our offer beautifully to the selling agent and owners. So much so they invited us in for a drink to celebrate their acceptance!

We were very fortunate to have met Anil, who helped us purchase our new condominium and sell our old one. We listened to his sound advice, followed his practical approach and sold our place within 2 days of listing at full asking price. This was amazing given the softening of the current real estate market.

Anil is a great agent! We found a really nice place for ourselves and our children that we would have never looked at without him. He guided us in terms of the big picture (neighbourhood) and details (of the house itself). We would have gone for something lesser in quality both in terms of location and the house itself had it not been for his advice. Anil was also a pleasure to work with; his manner is extremely pleasant and friendly. He let us see the house twice, then we signed and exchanged papers, and did a final walk-through of the house, so we interacted many times. He was very efficient and courteous each time as well as remarkably patient with our questions and needs. Even our kids really liked him. We would recommend him to anyone looking for an agent.
Thank you Anil for finding us our perfect house. My wife and I are most grateful to you for your hard work in finding us exactly what we were looking for. You really paid attention to our needs and you never once tried to persuade us in buying something that didn't meet all our priorities. Thank you again for your constant professionalism and intuitive insights.
