About me:

As a real estate agent, Derek is quite simply one of the best. He is ranked among the top 1% of real estate agents in Toronto, and is recipient of awards such as the RE/MAX Platinum Club. He is also in the top 3 individual agents at his office.

This means that he has the drive, the support and the network to help you buy the home you desire, making the most of this major investment, or to help you sell your home quickly and for the best price.

He owes his success to:

Commitment: Derek does things 100% or not at all. His drive led him to career as a successful stock trader and to become Canadian Amateur Heavyweight Champion in Muay Thai (Thai kickboxing), and later fought for the world title.

He brings the same full commitment to the people he serves today, going above and beyond the call of duty to get the results they deserve, whether they are buying or selling homes.

Care: While real estate is about numbers, Derek is driven by his love of people. He started his working life helping at-risk youth for the Toronto District School Board and then working in a full-time care facility for children with autism.

As an agent he knows that his business depends on the successful relationships he builds. While backed by a great team, he handles every client himself, making himself available to them around the clock, answering questions, dealing with concerns, and moving quickly to close transactions.

Connection: Derek is connected to this city and loves it. He was born and bred in Toronto, and lives here with his family. He knows its neighbourhoods and keeps on top of the evolving market.

Derek is widely respected in Toronto real estate circles and has a network of professional connections that allow him to find great properties that are not officially on the market yet, and locate the right buyers for homes.

Derek loves connecting home buyers and home sellers, getting the results that make all the difference in their lives.

Derek Ladouceur is fantastic broker. My wife and I were lucky to find Derek and his team as our real estate agent. Derek managed to get as much profit out of sale as possible. In a difficult situation Derek represented himself as a professional who is willing to help and not leave you behind. We appreciate his help and will recommend him to all our friends and family.

Derek recently helped me sell my condo in North York. This was my first time selling a home, and Derek's expertise and advice was invaluable. He was very patient and helpful, and maintained great communication throughout the entire process. He is highly attentive to detail, and after having my condo staged, it sold in less than 24 hours! Bottom line - I can't imagine having a more positive experience and would highly recommend Derek

I was glad that I decided to choose Derek Ladouceur from Remax Hallmark among the list of real estate agents to sell my property; he exceeded my expectation of an agent. Derek made every effort to get me the best value for my property and even surpass the amount I'd hoped for. My sincerest thanks goes to him and the staff that worked with him in making it happened. Derek is such a nice and very professional individual so I placed all my trust in him with regards to selling my property and sure enough he made me one happy client. I will surely have him again as my agent for future real estate transaction. So if any of you looking for real estate agent with high caliber and knows the business well but yet down to earth, I highly recommend Derek Ladouceur for you.

After spending a few years out of the market I decided it was time to buy a place again so I reached out to Derek and we started the process. He proved himself not only to be knowledgeable and professional but he really took the time to get to know exactly what I was looking for and after a few visits to different places we found a new home for me. I also have to comment on the other folks that he put in contact with to complete the transaction - they were all excellent and really created a seamless process for me. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Derek to any of my friends. Thanks Derek for making what could have been a daunting and stressful process a simple and fun one instead!

Derek makes buying a home fun! I wish I could do it all over again. Hey, maybe I will some day and hopefully with Derek again.

My wife Natalie and I recently had the pleasure of working with Derek during the purchase of our new house, and sale of our current home. In today's Toronto, things move rather quickly, and outcomes can vary tremendously in this busy and increasingly competitive real-estate market. Derek was extremely well versed in his knowledge of this ever changing marketplace, and was obviously well educated in the on goings around not only our current neighborhood, but our new location as well, which proved to be extremely valuable. Derek brought his knowledge, his professionalism, his network, and his hard working attitude to each and every interaction, applying himself extremely well so that we would ultimately be successful in not only the largest purchase of our lives together - but also the largest sale. Thanks to Derek, the entire process took under a month from buying to selling. He is well connected not only within his network of agents, but also carries with him a network of impressive professionals that helped make this process much easier - from painters, to stagers, right down to movers. All very impressive, just like Derek - true professionals, acting quickly and proficiently with skill, at a very good price. Not only were my wife and I extremely pleased with the end result, we are more than happy to share our story on how well things went all due to our Realtor - Derek Ladouceur. We could not be more ecstatic with the outcome, thank you so much Derek, we are thrilled with the job you've done! Not only do we have a Realtor for life, we now have a friend in the real-estate business.

Victor and I would like to extend a warm thanks and gratitude in helping us with the purchase of our Toronto Condo. Living in Cambridge was a challenge to drive to Toronto when new properties came on the market, you made it a very pleasant experience and a quick one. Not only are you a man of integrity, but your patience and professionalism made us at ease when it came to making the final decision. Throughout the entire process we felt that your background as a realtor and your honesty assured us we were in good hands. Not only was the process a pleasant one but a quick and easy one for us, you made us feel like we were your only clients! We bought our condo within two weeks of the start of this process, which shows us that you understood what we were looking for and could deliver. Thank you for making our condo buying experience such a positive one. We will definitely mention you to our friends and family looking for real-estate in the Toronto area!

On being given a referral to work with Toronto Realtor, Derek Ladouceur, we have not looked back. We were emigrating from the UK to Toronto and Derek could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. All the phone calls to the UK before we arrived and finding out exactly what we were looking for, to explaining how the system works over in Canada, to helping us find the perfect house; he was totally prepared to handle everything. When we arrived in Toronto he collected us from the hotel and drove us round tirelessly for three days having booked all the appointments at houses we wanted to view and it was effortless for us. The amount of work he did on our behalf and the trouble he went to was fantastic. We bought one of the homes we viewed in those three days and it is stunning. He has helped us in every way and we have no hesitation in recommending Derek to anyone looking for the perfect home in Toronto. He could not have done more to help us.

Our condo was recently sold by Derek Ladouceur of Re/max Realty. We couldn't have had a better experience. From our first meeting, through staging, photographing the space, showings, to the final selling, Derek made the process seamless and stress-free. His enthusiasm, knowledge of the process and experience from other sales kept us comfortable and confident that we had chosen our realtor well. Derek kept us informed of every detail and offered good advice when needed. When we had concerns Derek listened, was responsive, and addressed those concerns. As proof of his excellence as a professional, he was able to sell our unit for the highest amount ever sold in our building. We highly recommend Derek to anyone who wishes to sell in our city.

(Buyer and Seller, 2015)

Last year when my life was very busy and hectic. I decided to sell my house and I chose Derek to work with he is very professional and a pleasure to work with he helped to take a lot of stress away when making decisions. He helped by providing ideas to best prepare my home for selling, and it sold over asking within a week, he's always on time and very responsive to emails and phone calls and was a great to keep me informed and calm. He even connected me with all the other services I need to sell my home like a lawyer. Additionally, Derek even went out of his way to help me purchase a new home outside of the city. It'd be a pleasure to work with Derek again.

We will highly recommend Derek to anyone who wants their needs met quickly and efficiently. Derek will always ensure that his client's needs are met. Derek is aggressive when selling your house, but not pushy when you are looking for a house. I would also mention that Derek's after sale service is also amazing. Because of his connections, we found some reliable and amazing people to help us move and deal with other things when selling our condo and when moving into our new home.

(Buyer and Seller, 2015)

We were about to get married and looking to upsize from our downtown Toronto condo to a home in our favourite area of the city, the Beaches. We met Derek. Unlike many other realtors, he was professional and not overbearing. He worked tirelessly to list and sell our condo at a price we were happy with. He also helped us to purchase our new home in the Beaches. The market in Toronto was so competitive that we have no doubt we would not have won the bidding war if it weren't for Derek. Without hesitation, we would use Derek again and highly recommend him for anyone's real estate needs.

Brandi and Jason N.

(Buyer, 2014)

We met Derek at an open house and immediately trusted and liked him. Working with him to find our first home was a very positive experience. He is very patient, knowledgeable and savvy, and has a great grasp of the current and potential value of different properties. His opinions, insight and expertise were invaluable in helping us to find the perfect home. We won't hesitate to contact Derek when we outgrow it.

Dominik D.

(Buyer, 2015)

Derek is an ultra-knowledgeable professional who treats clients like family. He first found our family the perfect rental in the Beaches, and then he helped us buy the perfect family home the Danforth. Nobody gets deals done quicker than Derek. Within 24 hours of seeing the house, Derek had got our offer accepted by the seller, and this was on a weekend. I wouldn't dream of using any other realtor in Toronto.

Charles and Caroline S.

(Buyer, 2017)

We first met Derek in the autumn of 2016 when we visited the Remax office on Queen Street and asked to be introduced to an agent familiar with the condo market in the area. My wife had recently been diagnosed with a back ailment and we needed to move away from the three flights of stairs that were giving her so much pain. This initiated what we knew would be a whirlwind process, since we were intent on moving before Christmas. As we discovered later, fortune was on our side that day. Right away Derek seemed attuned to our needs and understood what was important to us. Within a few days we were visiting condo units and further refining our list of "must haves". Derek had been easy to communicate with from the start, returning calls or emails promptly, and this proved to be his normal practice. Two weeks or so into the process Derek brought us to a unit that immediately captured our attention. After a short discussion we decided that we would actively pursue the unit and this is where Derek's skill as a realtor became even more apparent. We had chosen to pursue a very desirable unit with a stunning view. It was no surprise that others saw the same benefits as we did, and the "game" was on with a number of bids in play. Derek was skillful in counselling us through the bidding phase and there is no doubt in our minds that his expertise played a huge role in our eventual success. He was in touch frequently, was easy to reach when we had questions or concerns and provided sound counsel. It was clear that he had a deep understanding of the market and the products available in the market. As well, Derek maintained strong communication with both his clients and other agents. That could have been the end of the story, but it was not. Once the unit was ours we determined that a little work was in order, but our time was limited. Through Derek's connections we were able to find workers who took on our jobs and performed them expertly. After moving into the unit there were several issues. While Derek did not have the power to solve the problems, he was instrumental in getting the right people to listen. He was not only concerned with helping us purchase the unit, but it was important to him that we were happy and well-settled. As the saying goes, he was "there" for us. In summary, Derek Ladouceur is a highly skilled and caring realtor who listens to his clients and works hard on their behalf. He is a strong, straight-forward communicator who has sound knowledge of the real estate market and how that market operates. We would highly recommend Derek, without any reservations, to anyone seeking a realtor.

We met Derek at a fundraiser he was involved in for a local community centre. We loved his personality and passion almost immediately. We set up a time for him to come by the house. His professionalism and personality carried through from the previous time we met. He had our home staged, photographed within a few days. His marketing was above and beyond what we anticipated. He did a radio commercial talking about our home, he gave it a website, put it on every social media outlet and within 2 days we had the highest price ever on our street. We cannot stress enough how happy we were with his service. His after care service was just as great!

Maneer K.

(Seller, 2017)

As a first time seller of a condo unit, I was new to the whole process. Derek went out of his way to make the whole selling process feel calm and smooth; a great team effort and an excellent level of expedited service provided. The social media and radio announcement was indeed his great selling approach. Derek has been supportive, professional, dedicated, friendly and very positive. We would not hesitate to reach him out for future sale of our property.
