John Ayoub is an award-winning real estate broker with Royal LePage Your Community Realty, one of the top realty brokerages in Canada, and also the #1 Franchise in Canada for Royal LePage. In the last 14 years John has bought, sold and leased a wide variety of properties for a wide variety of clients including first time home buyers and condo purchasers to buying and selling multi-million dollar estate properties.
John’s strong negotiation skills provide the foundation of his consistent performance in the top 2% of realtors countrywide. “In real estate, you don’t get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate. If you want to get top dollar, strategic marketing and maximum exposure of your home or property, is essential; negotiations always start long before an agreement to purchase is presented,” the award-winning real estate broker says.
John’s professional accomplishments have been recognized by many company awards including the 2017 Red Diamond Award and the Award of Excellence - only the top 2% of realtors from across Canada receive these awards.
The Luxury Home Marketing Institute has also recognized John as a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist™. This prestigious designation assures affluent buyers and sellers that, in addition to documented performance, the recipient has the knowledge, experience, and unique skills to meet luxury home buyers/sellers’ specialized needs. The Institute has also designated John as a Million Dollar GUILD™ member.
John is also a member of the Toronto Real Estate Board Commercial Divisions and is knowledgeable and experienced in buying, selling and leasing high and low density commercial and investment properties. “This is a valuable asset as I have a strong understanding of the investment side of things, Cap rates, R.O.I., etc.” John adds.
This unique ability - to dexterously transition between dissimilar real estate categories and among widely divergent clients - is somewhat unique on the GTA real estate scene. “And, because I believe there is always a demand to buy, sell or lease, I never allow the markets to dictate what I do,” he adds. John also customizes his services to meet each client’s specific needs.
One satisfied client says, “…Exceptional marketing sets John apart. He also has a tenacious attention to detail and a strong grasp of real estate trends. His customized marketing techniques include leveraging of all types…”
Members of the media also consider John a reliable and knowledgeable source and often approach him for insight on a wide variety of real estate topics.
“The work and the relationships are what’s important to me. My attention, commitment and level of service are consistent, regardless of the transaction size.“
“I am also connected to a large network of realtors throughout North America and internationally. Whether one of my clients wants to purchase property in Florida or Dubai I can still help by referring him or her to another reputable realtor in my network,” the award-winning realtor explains.
John developed his customer-centric brand as a result of various senior management roles in sales, finance and customer service roles. He believes an unwavering commitment to his tagline, “Committed to Creating Clients for Life,” is the secret sauce that powers both his reputation and his personal brand. “I service and maintain a long list of repeat and past clients and I am particularly proud of being able to help several generations of clients from the same family,” he adds.
John also believes in providing a continuum of service and is available to answer questions and to provide assistance both before and after the sale. “Many clients refer to me as their trusted advisor. This makes me very proud, and I do my best to continue to earn their trust. When my clients are happy, because they have made a successful purchase or sale, that makes me happy too,” John says.
His clients appreciate John’s client-centric approach and describe him as culturally savvy, knowledgeable, and approachable. One satisfied client said, “…As first-time homebuyers it is so easy to get led astray. The first realtor we met tried to push us to buy one of the first houses we saw…(John) was very patient, took us to see as many homes as we wanted and gave us excellent advice…There was never a time in the process when he said ‘No’ or seemed impatient or annoyed with all the things that we (especially my wife) asked for…In the end, when we finally purchased our house, John worked hard to negotiate a very reasonable final price, better than we hoped for. He has continued to help us during the inspection and closing…we now consider him a good family friend.”
In addition to buying, selling and leasing properties, John is happy to share his personal connections with clients and friends. Need a mover? John probably has a contact. It is also likely he can make a referral to painters, builders, renovators, landscapers, home security specialists, financial companies, accountants, lawyers, and everything in between. John also likes to share information on any educational seminars offered by other experts that he thinks his clients might enjoy. “I am always looking for ways to make a difference,” the real estate broker adds.
John believes in life-long learning and is committed to upgrading his knowledge and skills by attending workshops and investment seminars. He also works closely with his business coach. “I’m always challenging myself to reach the next level of personal and professional development,” John adds.
John is a family man, a community man and a ‘real’ person. He and his wife Reem have been married for ten years. “Reem and our two incredible children, Jordan and Diana, inspire me to be the best man, the best person and the best realtor I can possibly be.
