CENTURY 21 Benchmark Realty Inc. opens to offer specialty real estate services in North York, ON

CENTURY 21 Benchmark Realty Inc. has opened a boutique office that specializes in residential, commercial, and development-focused real estate in the North York community of Toronto. Owner John Di Tommaso grew up in the community and brings extensive real estate experience to foster the growth of this new office.

“My favourite part of the business is building lasting relationships. We’re always looking ahead of the curve to find new ways to keep clients coming back by providing even more valuable services,” said Di Tommaso, owner, CENTURY 21 Benchmark Realty Inc. “There’s a massive advantage to being known and respected globally. I’d been with the other big companies before and wanted to continue this time with the support and connections of the world’s largest residential real estate network, CENTURY 21®.”

REALTOR® Robert Principe joins Di Tommaso and offers over eight years’ experience in the banking industry and twenty years in real estate. Together, they are working to create a cutting edge office where prospective agents feel their excitement and passion as soon as they walk through the doors.

“When you have local insight, you know your community inside out so you’re first to see where the market is headed. You know exactly how to tailor your services to specific customer needs – John has the hometown advantage and more,” said Brian Rushton, executive vice president, CENTURY 21 Canada™. “Welcome to the CENTURY 21 family from all of us in senior leadership and from our offices, across the nation and worldwide!”

The office is strategically located for prime access for clients and foot traffic, with easy access to the 401 highway. Di Tommaso spotted the opportunity to open an office after witnessing huge real estate market growth in the area. With several residential housing developments underway, as well as a new hospital and subway to support and attract future residents, the area isn’t slowing down.

Since day one as a REALTOR®, Di Tommaso says that opening his own real estate office was his dream, “It feels good to help business owners, investors, and families in the areas I grew up in.”

Di Tommaso supports his local community as it’s close to his heart. He’s raising his own son there and gives back with every sale.

CENTURY 21 Benchmark Realty Inc. is a full service real estate brokerage offering specialties in residential, commercial, and development real estate services in North York and the surrounding Toronto area. Stop by the office at 245 Caledonia Road, suite 202 or visit their company website to experience the CENTURY 21 difference.
