“When someone gives you the honour of representing one of the biggest decisions they will ever make, you’ve got to pretend it’s your money — every dollar should be thought out and maximized!”

Meet Ben Leonard

Ben Leonard is a third-generation realtor.

He is also a ruthless Monopoly player; being obsessed with maximizing the selling and/or buying of a home is something he is passionate about,

and something that’s in his blood.

Before getting his start in the family business in his late 20s, Ben had already gained valuable experience in the construction industry, working on job sites with his father, where he developed a passion for building and rebuilding and saw firsthand how a house comes together.

Joining RE/MAX Realty Specialists in 1999, Ben was able to gain extensive experience in the marketing and selling aspects of residential real estate. His early successes signalled Ben was on the right path.

A traveller at heart, Ben moved West and soon joined RE/MAX Professionals in Calgary, gaining exposure to a different type of market. Upon moving back to Toronto, he has consistently been among the top-producing agents with RE/MAX Realty Specialists, achieving a Platinum Team designation for the last several years. With extensive knowledge and experience in the Mississauga, Hamilton and St. Catharines markets Ben has recently been focusing much of his efforts closer to his Toronto-Midtown home, working the market in Toronto’s Downtown core.

Ben prides himself on the high level of service he provides, and the relentless work ethic that is at his core. He comes armed with an exceptional team of contractors, landscapers, stagers, photographers — whatever it takes to put his clients’ homes in the best light for sale. And that is meant quite literally — he will even purchase strategic lighting to ensure the room or hallway is performing at its best. Every detail counts!

Ben is a student of Mandarin Chinese, taught scuba diving in Thailand and lived throughout Asia for nearly three years. He is known for his love of food and spends most of his down time in the kitchen cooking with his incredible fiancée and kids. His passion for life is contagious, his enjoyment of people is immediately recognizable. Consequently, Ben appreciates the relationships he builds with his clients, who regularly become real friends.
