t's been often said that "getting there is half the fun." But what exactly does this timeless saying really mean? In today's bottom line, results-oriented society, it suggests that we shouldn't view the journey as a task to be accomplished, but rather as an experience to be enjoyed. SANTINO exemplifies this philosophy and believes the key to every successful journey is getting there in style.
A Dynamic and Lively Personality
SANTINO is very proud to call Toronto "home" and finds the city is even more alive and exciting today than it was when he was growing up. When you first meet him, you can tell immediately that he truly loves the flair and style of Toronto. In fact, his dynamic and lively personality is a reflection of the city itself, and it has helped him become somewhat of a local authority on the Toronto lifestyle.
Refreshingly Different Experience
As a leading real estate professional, he takes great pride in helping others make the most of living in Toronto. He's well aware that moving to such a big city can be quite a challenge and even if you're relocating within the area, the process of buying or selling a property can be very taxing as well. However, with SANTINO, the journey is different. It's more than a question of simply looking at prospective properties or going through the steps to listing and selling your property. SANTINO tailors your journey to your specific needs and makes it an experience to remember.
Enjoying the Ride
With SANTINO, the primary goal is always to get you the results you're looking for quickly and efficiently. But he also recognizes that enjoying the ride along the way is equally important. His good natured sense of humor and ability to easily relate to people from all walks of life helps him break down the boundaries of the traditional client/agent relationship. This paves the way to establishing trusting friendships with the people he works with that often last long after the transaction is finished. It also helps to alleviate the stress that frequently comes with moving.
Extensive Marketing Strategy
SANTINO has established a reputation as one the most highly respected agents in the city. For prospective Sellers, he comes directly to your home with past sales in your complex and neighborhood. This enables you to price your home correctly. He also outlines his marketing strategy which includes extensive advertising (a web site of your own, brochures, handshakes, syndication, etc.), and conducting open houses for buyers and co-brokers.
Regardless of where your own journey may take you, why not go there in style? SANTINO AGUECI will help you make the most of your move. His unique ability to make the process both entertaining and enjoyable, as well as successful, makes him the ideal professional to help you buy or sell your property.

Find the Right Agent, see what my clients have to say.
Our family very much enjoyed working with Santino to sell our condo and buy a house.
Through the process of searching for a home, he was available and responsive, and willing to take the time to explore a variety of options with us. He was both realistic and calmly enthusiastic, which was a great balance in our experience of the current fast-paced Toronto housing market.
With Santino we ended up purchasing a house the same day our condo sold, and one facilitated the other as we had more information available to us given the timing. On that particular day we were aware of how well Santino managed the two processes and the various parties involved. With that we were able to make the best decisions possible and were completely satisfied with our sale and purchase experience.
Thank you - we are looking forward to our new home.

Thanks for a great year in real estate. I would love to provide the following testimonial. Santino Agueci has been my real estate agent since 1998. Since this date, I have sold 2 homes and bought one. All of my dealings with Santino have been impressive. Santino brings extensive knowledge about the Toronto housing market, what buyers are looking for and has expert negotiation skills. For both of my sales, I have received top dollar for my house. Santino is a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend him!!
I wish to thank you for the excellent job you did in selling our home. In one day! Over asking price! Hard to believe but you did it!
Even though we have a family member who is a realtor, I knew that you'd be the right person to get the job done. Your years of experience and negotiation skillssurely paid off for us.
We had originally decided to try and sell our property via private sale/listing but had no luck for a couple of months. We decided to go with Santino and are very please we chose him as our realtor.
Santino was able to get us a satisfactory offer within our listing price within 2 weeks. Not only is he persistent, but he's also very professional, courteous and helpful, and ideal combination of what makes him a successful realtor.
We'd highly recommend anyone selling their property to enlist Santino as their realtor. They will not be disappointed. Thanks Santino!

Property Purchased at 700 King St. West
Santino was effective in guiding me through a broad range of buildings, and helping me determine the exact type of property to suit my lifestyle. He always made sure that when a listing came on the market, I was positioned to be one of the first to view it and place an offer.
Santino was extremely patient throughout the buying process, knowing that I was very particular about the type of condo that I wanted. At the same time, he knew when to be aggressive in order to secure a great unit.
Thank you again for successfully leading us through the recent sale of our condo townhome. We were so pleased to have decided to work with you, as your professionalism, attention to detail, follow up and closing skills allowed us to quickly list, show and sell our home in 8 days (during a very cold February!).
Your management of the bidding war, helping us understand the merits of the multiple offers and ultimately sell our home for >$10,000 over list (with no conditions) was excellent. We learned a lot about the buying and selling process from your experience, which allowed us to confidently go into negotiations for the purchase of our new home.
Thanks again and we would not hesitate to recommend you highly to any future clients,

If you are thinking about selling your house, my husband and I strongly recommend you list with Santino Agueci of Sutton Realty. You will not be disappointed. There are so many real estate agents competing for your listing, and as a first time home seller, we knew how important it was to pick the right one. We had intended to interview a few agents but after meeting Santino - we knew we had selected the right one. Santino took the time to explain the house selling process to us, and was always available to answer any questions we had. Santino promised to “sell our house as quickly as possible, for as much as possible” and delivered on his promise.
Our house sold in 11 days, for 99.2% of the asking price. We were extremely pleased with Santino’s friendly attitude and professionalism and would not hesitate to recommend him as your next real estate agent!

PROPERTY SOLD: Canniff
Thanks so much for all your help!! I met with several real estate agents before I selected Santino to represent me. All of the other agents based their assessment of my property on one factor - the selling price of similar townhouses in the area. Each one of them gave me a quote approx. $10 000 under what Santino had valued my property.
Santino's market analysis included many more factors in his estimation of the property demonstrating greater knowledge of the King West area and the real estate market. I am proud to say that my house sold in under a week at 99% of asking price. The extra money I received would not be in my pocket if I had selected another agent who would have placed my house on the market and underestimated its worth.
As well, Santino was extremely prompt in returning calls, keeping me up to date and in ensuring that all of the details of my real estate transaction were done smoothly and efficiently. I was very pleased with all aspects of Santino's service and would highly recommend using him to sell your property.

Dear prospective client:
I am writing to express our endorsement of Santino as a real estate agent. Santino recently sold our house for us at $10,000 over the asking price and we are very happy. But it is not only the closing price that was important, though I'm sure Santino will do his best to achieve the best price for your home as well.
It was a delight to work with Santino from the beginning. He was respectful, cooperative and helpful at all times. He thoroughly explained our options, gave us an accurate assessment and history of recent activity in our neighbourhood, directed us astutely and kindly in how we could best present our home to viewers, and professionally and skilfully negotiated the multiple offers we received.
In the end, I cannot speak highly enough of Santino and will recommend him to anyone who asks. I am sure you will have a successfully relationship with him and be equally pleased.
Santino was the perfect realtor for me! He knew all of the buildings in the neighbourhood where I wanted to buy. He listened to my wants and needs and made sure I was one of the first buyers to view each property the day that it was listed. He also gave his honest opinion about certain buildings in the area and condo units that we viewed so I knew that he had my best interests in mind. Santino also patiently explained the entire process of buying a home to me as I was a first time buyer. Therefore, when the time came I knew exactly what to expect. I ended up purchasing the perfect condo and was extremely happy with the entire process. I give Santino my highest recommendation as a realtor!
I am a first-time home buyer and quite specific about what I was looking for. I actually met Santino during an open house. He was very welcoming and knowledgeable. With the brisk housing market, time was of the essence when opportunities arose. I was particularly impressed with his prompt response time. He also introduced me to some great people to work with as part of the buying process. Santino covers all the details. It's a one-stop shopping experience with first-class customer service. I’d highly recommend Santino.
