What do Clients Say?
I thought I would write and let you know how very much we are enjoying our new home.Thinking back on the search and purchase process, we realize how much we owe to you for this new beginning. It was clearly your willingness to do everything you could to help us that brought about this successful and happy ending. One rarely stops to thank the people who have helped in such important ways - allow me to rectify this omission.If you remember, we called you when we were beginning our search based on my experience with you over 20 years ago. I think it says something fundamental about a real estate professional that she is so remarkable that she stays in her clients' minds for that long!It was a pleasure to work with you during this search - your professionalism and competence were much appreciated; your degree in architecture allows you to view a home more thoroughly than other agents - this is a plus for your clients who get a much clearer idea of the home they are purchasing.I think what truly distinguishes you from other agents is the level of personalized service you give - you treat your clients as good friends. You work hard, are very available to show properties and, most importantly, are very involved with your clients and are committed to finding them the home they will love.And thanks for all the after-sale help! Your recommendations for workmen that we have needed have been invaluable.I hope never to move again! I am still in boxes and probably will be until the Fall.But, should we ever decide to sell, I hope you are still working in this field that you master so well.Patricia Trapnell, Westmount
I had the good fortune to find Tania Kalecheff in fall 2007. My condo, which I had first listed in June 2007, was not selling. I hadn’t even gotten one offer over the summer. The listing was up for renewal and I was not convinced that my current agents were advertising or selling it as well as they could. So I started to look at the condos that had sold in the area during that time and a curious pattern emerged: most had been sold by Re/Max Westmount. In particular, one agent stood out: Tania Kalecheff. So I gave her a call and was impressed by her energy, strong background and track record as an award-winning agent. Upon meeting her, her professionalism, knowledge of the market and great ideas all put her head and shoulders above the other agents I met that day. I knew I had to work with her. Within hours, Tania had my condo advertised in several papers. Every week thereafter, she advertised it and held open house after open house. She worked and promoted my condo tirelessly over the course of her mandate, as much as she did her higher-end listings. During this time, Tania pulled in no fewer than 3 offers. But the real depth of her experience shone when she encouraged me to wait for the price that was right. And we got it!All through this time, she showed incredible compassion, warmth and humour no matter the circumstances. I’m pleased to say that I signed an agent, sold my condo, and gained a true friend this fall. I would recommend Tania Kalecheff to anyone looking for the best agent around. If you are lucky enough to get her, you’re in excellent hands.Elizabeth Dundas, Montreal
Just a quick note to thank you for all your help in selling our house. Sean and I have sold four houses in the last 15 years and have never before had anything positive to say about our real estate agents. You changed all that. You have a fabulous eye for a property. I was so impressed with your ability to walk into rooms (even ones I thought I'd figured out) and immediately see how to clean them up or dress them up for their ideal presentation. You were completely correct about Aislinn's nook, and, though I hate to admit it, about our basement playroom too. You have a gift for giving a seller unwelcome news without giving offense. In our case, this had to do with staging, rather than pricing, but I imagine you've come across some sellers who struggle with pricing decisions. We certainly appreciated your straight talk. You are quite a hard worker! I've already told many of my friends how, even before we'd signed a contract with you, you were out at 8:00 Friday evening shopping for goodies to dress up our house. At best, my previous agents told me what to do to prepare my property for the market. You rolled up your sleeves and got to work preparing the property. Our house looked fantastic when it hit the market due in large part to your efforts. It was quite a relief to us to have sold for such a strong price and in less than a week. We are happy to recommend your services to others. Please feel free to use us as references.Laura and Sean O'Leary, Westmount
As a certified architect and over 30 years of experience as an agent, Tania Kalecheff raises the bar in real estate. Beyond her exceptional qualifications, she is honest, hard-working and hands-on. She is without question everything that you could ask for in an agent. Whether you are buying or selling, I highly recommend calling Tania.K. Cole , Westmount
"My experience with Tania Kalecheff was superb! Tania is a consummate professional. She knows her business and the area. She gives generously of her time, knowledge and herself. She is smart and has a wonderful engaging style and manner. Having her represent my property was a pleasant undertaking during a stressful time. I would highly recommend her to others."E. Hunter, Westmount
Tania’s business career started in the late 70’s in international banking upon completion of a B.Comm. in Marketing and International Business from McGill University.
She credits her interest in real estate to the influence of one of her mentors at the Mercantile Bank; shortly after, she obtained her real estate license in 1981.
Family commitments took her to live in Bermuda and New York City where she was introduced to architecture at Columbia University. After returning home to Montreal, she enrolled full time at Universite de Montreal and obtained a Bachelor of Architecture in 1989, whilst working in real estate in the summers. Her work in architecture brought her back indirectly into real estate with a contract for the management and refurbishing of a 200 unit building.
In 1996, she returned to real estate full time with Royal LePage in Westmount where she rose to be one of the top 5 agents. Looking to further her career, she joined the RE/MAX franchise in Westmount in 2007; within a few years she was inducted into the Remax Hall of Fame, was an award winning top producer and one of the top 100 brokers in the Quebec Remax network. In 2019 she joined Profusion Realty, Quebec's premier independently owned real estate broker and the only Christie's Real Estate affiliate in Quebec. This association permits her to better showcase luxury properties and her clients benefit from the international connection, top notch marketing and exposure it brings.
Tania’s clients benefit from her keen eye as an architect in bringing out their properties full potential. Her creativity is evident in her advertising, presentations and home staging. Her approach to real estate is to offer boutique services to her clients asopposed to the warehouse of properties approach. The marketing of each property is customized to each seller’s requirements and needs. Personalized assistance and open communication with her clients are hallmarks of her work. It is a testament to her professionalism and dedication to her clients that most of her business comes through referrals from past customers and other brokers.
Tania understands that a client’s home is one of their most prized assets, and whether it is a modest property or a luxury home, it will be treated with the respect and care that it deserves.
Tania is a Westmount homeowner and resides there with her family and their two mischievous dachshunds.
