karyn-bio Nice to virtually meet you! I’m Karyn Filiatrault, the principal lead over here at HSK, and I’m anything but a traditional Toronto Real Estate Agent. Formerly a documentary producer at the Discovery Channel, I left the television industry to fill a much foreseen gap in the Toronto Real Estate market. What falls in that gap, you ask? Realness, to start. Because let’s be honest, who can deal these days with a stiff suit? No pushy sales moves and starch formalities here! Working with me will be like working with your trusted friend, only in my back pocket is almost a hundred million dollars in closed Toronto Real Estate deals, plenteous sales experience in both Toronto and abroad, multiple negotiation expert designations, an inside-out knowledge of Toronto’s neighbourhoods and excellent understanding of the Toronto Real Estate market.

Another thing about me you should know is that I am the city’s most well known purveyor of the lifestyle real estate film. If you’re selling your home and want the highest level of Toronto Real Estate marketing, you’re going to want to call me. I famously employ the experience of my former career by using professional cinematographers, professional talent, makeup and hair artistry and a story-boarded script to sell homes. That’s right – I write and direct the production of a unique real estate lifestyle film about your equally unique property, to ensure that your place sells faster (and at a higher price point) than it otherwise would with anyone else. They have been seen to date hundreds of thousands of times. You can check out some of those films here.

I am humbled to be frequently called upon by the media for expert Toronto Real Estate advice. And I am proud to hold two professional negotiation designations to serve you better, including a master certified negotiation certificate from the Real Estate Negotiation Institute. Whether working with first-time millennial buyers or seasoned investors, I assure you warmth and an energetic commitment to ensuring your needs are addressed, met, and exceeded; always with honesty and integrity. 

I’m also a mother. And a very proud one at that. My young son, Max, mutually shares my love for adventure, travel, sports and this amazing city.

 

Want to learn more about who I am, what I do and how I can help you? My “door” is always open, so if you have more questions, please insta message, text, call at 416-888-1844, or let’s talk.


Hillary LaneI’m Hillary, team associate with HSK, the obsessor of details and a Toronto Real Estate agent driven by data. Lovingly nicknamed “The Taskmaster” by my dearest friends, I am known for my tenacious ability to get any job done right. My analytical and detail-oriented approach leaves clients feeling informed and in charge of the process. But don’t think for a minute that I’m the introverted nerd-type. Clients report back that what they like most about me is my ability to connect and communicate; to listen and understand exactly what is important to each person in their real estate experience.

I began my career as a real estate agent after falling in love with the process of flipping homes with my contractor husband, Tim. Our dream-team combination has given me the edge on maximizing profits and identifying potential investment opportunities. Whether its a renovation or new build, I’m the girl with the intimate knowledge of what it takes to realize the greatest resale potential. Other investment landscapes I am particularly passion about are income properties. As an investor myself, I am always on top of the most current regulations and considerations.

My husband and I live on the downtown west-side with out dog child, Ladybug. When I’m not working my butt off I love to take advantage of all the city has to offer like trying a new exercise class or checking out a new restaurant. I’m also a big fan of the great outdoors and love time spent at the cottage. Volunteer work has and still does play a large role in my life. I currently volunteer with the Distress Centre on a suicide prevention line and am the Co-Chair of a Patient and Family Advisory Committee at Sunnybrook Hospital.
