Lyle Hamilton in The Globe and Mail

My Clients Say...

Lyle Hamilton is an executive level real estate consultant. If you have a challenging sales or purchase project, Lyle will coordinate every aspect to make it happen – and it will – with a smile! I have engaged Lyle on three projects, none of them easy:

  1. sale of a 2000 sq ft condo in downtown Toronto suited to a buyer looking for a large entertainment space with outdoor amenities.
  2. purchase of a 1100 sq ft condo suitable to accommodate two home offices.
  3. negotiation of a commercial lease for a 1500 sq ft office suite with complex requirements. Lyle continued to be involved after the lease was signed, ironing out difficulties that were interfering with us getting settled in our new offices.

Lyle is cheerful, responsive, professional, dependable, punctual and trustworthy. Moreover, he is skilled negotiator when the deal could easily depend on the recommendation of the other agent to their client; persistent; well-connected to other agents, including international; and he has at his finger tips, trades and other services that may be needed to smooth the path to completion of a deal.

Lyle, puts meaning back into “full-service representative.”

Yours truly,

Don

History

The first people to inhabit the area now known as Baby Point were the Seneca Nation who named the land Teiaiagon and lived there in the 1600s. The land was abandoned when James Baby, a past political official in Upper Canada, discovered it in 1816. His family lived there until 1910 when the land was attained by the government. A real estate developer named Robert Home Smith bought the land from the government and started planning the construction of Baby Point in 1912.
