Divorce Client Testimonials
“Dear Michael, I can’t find the words to properly thank you & express my gratitude for the many ways you helped me through this nightmare. When 2 prior Realtors couldn’t sell my house & my ex-husband did everything to complicate the sale & make my life miserable I honestly lost hope. I couldn’t think straight & everything became so complicated. Everything seemed to be going wrong. You got my house sold when 2 Realtors before you couldn’t and I still can’t believe how you stepped up to defend me & protect me from being taken advantage of by my unreasonable Ex. As if that wasn’t enough, I can’t believe you were able to buy me time with my bank who was threatening power-of-sale so that you could get the property sold in time. As a single Mom going through Chemo & kids to support my life would not be the same today if it weren’t for you. I’ll never forget everything you did for me and will always tell everyone that you are the best Realtor, Negotiator, and all around most honourable super-amazing guy they could ever work with. Thanks so much!”
G.R., Innisfil, ON
“Michael, your ability to maintain the peace & keep us both focused on selling the property instead of focusing on our personal differences & the divorce was nothing short of amazing. You never seemed impatient, & you had such a calm, logical, & compassionate way of talking to my ex & getting us through the sale with less stress & in less time than it could have been. I am very grateful. Thank You!”
D.T. Vaughan, ON
“Michael, if you ever choose to quit real estate you should be a lawyer. When we first interviewed Realtors we thought we just needed someone who could sell our house. We had no idea how the divorce process effects the sale of a matrimonial home. The way you communicated with my family Lawyer & made sure all of the T’s were crossed & I’s were dotted, and also made sure nobody in this process took advantage of me or made me feel pressured was very impressive. I really appreciate your tireless efforts. You have excellent real estate skills, negotiating skills, but just as important to me was your integrity & compassion every step of the way. You are da’ man! You need to clone yourself so you can help more people.”
“Michael, when we first hired you as our realtor, I was still stressing over the whole divorce process. I didn’t know who to trust, who to call, who to hire, or which end was up. The fact that you didn’t see us as a mere commission and genuinely cared & took the time to help me through the process was an answer to my prayers. You made my life so much easier when you said you would take care of the Stager, photography, & recommend someone who could help us de-clutter, get organized, & fix a few things before listing. The storage facility you suggested was great, and the movers also did a great job and were understanding to our situation. My Ex always handled paying all of the bills, planning, etc. so I was grateful when you recommended a debt consultant & divorce financial advisor to help me get back on my feet and develop my own plan. Heck, I didn’t even know who to call for my insurance until you recommended someone for that too. No surprise that every single person you referred me to showed the same care, compassion, & professionalism that you do. You’re a one-stop source with the professionals you surround yourself with. Stay awesome Mike!”
Michael, I want to thank you very much for the outstanding job you did selling my condo. You sold it for the highest price of any unit in the history in this building. We had one offer (not multiples) and somehow you managed to negotiate it above my asking price … and within 24 hours of being listed.
As a former realtor myself who was very successful I know all too well how rare it is to find someone who is a full-time Realtor, has a thorough & comprehensive knowledge of the business and the market, who is an outstanding negotiator, and does it all with class.
It was an absolute pleasure working with you and I will highly recommend you to anyone, any time. Thank you.
When I asked another realtor what he would do for me, he vaguely responded: “everything”. Michael Shuster was different from the start. He spelled out EXACTLY what he would do to create a great experience from start to finish. He explained everything from helping me pack my belongings, to decluttering and getting rid of items & furniture I no longer need, to timing the sale of my house with my move to my care-home, to getting my home sold for top dollar, and of course he has the most kind, caring & trustworthy movers who understand seniors.
Absolutely every aspect of the service he and his team provided was professional, patient, caring, and was even more than I ever expected.

There are thousands of real estate agents to choose from. But if you’re looking for someone who really & truly knows his stuff, who’s completely dedicated to his clients, is an expert-negotiator, and an absolute pleasure to deal with, then you must call Michael Shuster. He’s an excellent communicator, he took the time to understand what I wanted and my concerns, and he went the extra mile to make my entire experience of selling my home and buying another home as smooth as possible. I cannot recommend him high enough.
KB, Toronto, ON
Michael has helped me and 2 of my sons through 8 residential transactions including buying homes, selling homes, and condos all around the Toronto Area. Michael is always knowledgeable about the most current market. He also took the time to make sure he knew exactly what each of us wanted & what was important to us, whether we were selling, buying, & renting.
My family has spent hours with Michael over the past 6 years looking at listings & through the many negotiation processes. Michael is an excellent negotiator which has served us well, especially during times of multiple offers.
I can’t say enough about Michael’s service as our Realtor.
He is always patient, professional, & prepared. Each of us has had great results & we continue to call on Michael every time a move is in the works.

Michael, you rock! Thank you for all of your hard work and for making our Christmas extra special this year! You stick true to your word and that is rare for most people these day let alone Realtors I’ve worked with before you! You made our Christmas and going into the new year amazing! We look forward to having you over for more celebratory drinks in the new house! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a fabulous New Year!
A&A, Whitby, ON
“Michael Shuster, we owe you a HUGE thank you for all you did for us. From selling our house and dealing with the other realtor who you caught trying to pull a fast one on the paperwork to change the numbers without us noticing, to negotiating the deal on our new house and getting us the critical closing day we desperately needed. I still can’t believe the last agent couldn’t sell my house after 2 months on the market, and you sold it in just ONE day! You have been amazing throughout the entire process from start to finish, and I am so grateful to have you on our side. We are eternally grateful for your knowledge, focus, compassion, integrity, and unparalleled negotiating skills.”
Barb S., Vaughan
“As a Professional Contractor & Custom Home Builder, I meet many home owners to renovate their homes so they can sell for top dollar & maximize profit. Clients often ask me what renovations will add short-term value so that they will get their ROI on the sale, and which renovations are a waste of money. Michael, you have been very supportive as part of my team. Your long history & success as a Real Estate Investor has ensured our clients are well informed about all of their options. Your mission to ensure total client satisfaction makes you an absolute pleasure to deal with. I’ve met good Realtors, but you have really proven to me that you are different than the rest, with your unique strategies & extensive knowledge about homes and market trends. Thanks for all of the great work Michael!”
Sandy R., Scarborough
“Dear Michael, I haven’t moved for 20 years, and back then my husband handled the details. Recently divorced, this entire process was very scary and overwhelming to me. I didn’t know who to trust, what to expect, or where to even begin finding a new home. You are the most patient Realtor on the planet. Not only did you keep me calm, focused, and you remained compassionate with me the entire time, but you also helped me find my dream home. The ultimate surprise was when you negotiated the deal at my price. I love you for what you did for me and I can’t wait for everyone I know to move so I can insist they call you and forget about using any other Realtor. Thank You … Thank You … Thank You!”
Robyn P., Toronto
“Oh My Goodness! Our last agent had our home listed for 3 months and we NEVER heard from him. It did not sell and he never bothered to call us with updates. You were professional from the minute we first met. Then you sold our home in just 4 days for over asking price. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Definitely tears of joy. When someone else can’t sell a home after 3 months on market and you sell it in 4 days for over asking that is just amazing. We were very impressed with how you handled the negotiation of our sale. We are so thrilled we found you guy and you were working for us instead of the people who bought our house.”
Peter & Sophie, Richmond Hill
“I read your blog and watch all your videos and interviews … great stuff. You explain everything in a way that is so easy for everyone to ‘get’ it! I’m obsessed with real estate (my first job at the age of 16 was a secretary in a real estate office)… bought my first house at the age of 18 (was infested with roaches … I was not aware!!!). Rented out homes for over 16 yrs and the list goes on. Anyway … Much, much, much continued success to you!!!”
Lucy B., Aurora
“When I bought our rental property I never imagined the tenants would become so inflexible in allowing us to access to the property or to sell the property. Although the tenants agreed when originally signing our lease to allow us to show the property to buyers (if and when we sell), and advertise the property for sale, I became very frustrated when they outright denied letting prospective buyers inside to see the property once you listed it for sale.
Your ability to negotiate an understanding with our tenants, thereby ultimately convincing them to cooperate in allowing buyers to see the property was most impressive. Your extended efforts to visit every single showing and ensure there was no conflict from the tenants, not only provided us with reassurance, but I’m convinced your efforts were integral in ultimately selling the property.
I believe that most Agents would not have invested the time to attend every showing, or for that matter even step in to deal with our tenants to smooth things over. They would have stopped working with us to sell the property, or hung in there just for the sale (commission). But you didn’t stop working after the waiver arrived and our deal was firm. Rather, due to your in-depth knowledge of the Residential Tenancy Act, and your proactive approach to business and ensuring we didn’t have a disappointing experience, your application to the Landlord & Housing Tribunal (on our behalf) for an eviction at the end of lease (as a safety precaution) was brilliant.
Although we agreed to allow the tenants to remain until the end of their lease (as is their right), we certainly feared they would not leave at the end date of the lease, which would then jeopardize the sale of the home, as we guaranteed vacant possession to the buyers.
Your attendance at the Landlord & Tenant tribunal hearing this week, and the way you presented our case to the adjudicator …. and ultimately got a verdict in our favour (in less than 5 min.) to evict the tenants by Sherriff’s order (if they don’t leave on the end date of the lease) was spectacular!
Thank You so much for all of your dedicated hard work, time, and expertise.”
Dwayne P., Ajax
“I extend our deepest gratitude to you Michael. You’ve truly been a superstar Realtor for Myself and my ill father. I live abroad so I’m not able to tend to all of the details of selling my father’s home. My fathers health has been declining rapidly and you Michael have gone far above and beyond your duties. You not only generated an offer for us that exceeded our expectations within just 2 days of listing, but you also assisted us with the necessary renovations to get it sold. I was speechless when you went to the hospital to see my Dad when his signature was required. You have done several things that definitely fall outside the duties and expectations of an average Realtor. Michael, everything you offer your clients definitely exceeds that of the average Realtor. Thanks Again!”
Mike A. & Sal A.
“Michael, you were very professional & most insightful when advising me on selling my condo. You patiently went through a complete analysis of the area and my building. He proved to be an expert negotiator and I always felt you were protecting my interests. You gave excellent staging advice & ideas I could implement myself to show my condo in the most appealing & enticing way to buyers. You were always extremely prompt in responding to my many emails & phone calls. I’ll be using your services again to buy my new home. Thanks again!”
Mark M., Toronto
“I would like to take this opportunity Michael, to thank you for the outstanding level of service you have consistently provided each & every one of the clients I’ve referred to you over the past year. As a Lawyer I work with several Realtors. However I’m cautious as to who I refer my own clients to as my reputation is ultimately on the line with every referral. I’ve always been impressed with your knowledge of real estate, your vast range of unique skills that many Realtors just don’t possess, your unwavering integrity, and your consistent level of excellent service. The fact that my clients continually thank me for referring them to you is testament to the superior experiences they’ve had working with you. The combination of professional skills & personal values you offer is rare in the industry. Keep up the great work.”
J. H., Mississauga
“Michael – thank you for your friendship, support, and many lessons in the art and science of making deals happen. I wish you continued success this year.”
“Thank you for the great job you did in helping to sell our home. We always felt well supported, from our earliest meetings through the final closing. The time, effort, energy and focus that you showed really made a difference, and we appreciate the high level of communication throughout the process. We will highly recommend you to our family and friend in the future!”
