My family and I have had the pleasure of working with Maria Ongaro for several years, on many transactions, (correct word?), including both rentals and home sales.
In a sentence: If every business ran with the smarts, efficiency, and diligence of Maria, the world would be a better place. Maria anticipated opportunities and challenges and offered excellent time-saving and money-saving solutions to us all along the journey.
Moving can be extremely stressful — working with Maria made the entire process one of confidence and enjoyment.
Highly, highly recommend.

Maria Ongaro is absolutely an incredible agent / broker.
SELLING OUR HOME
Maria helped us sell our Heritage Home. This was a tough sell. It was on the market for a while before Maria took over and sold it. She listened to our needs, she was punctual to every showing and went above and beyond. She brought flowers, she was gardening and even pulling out weeds. Her marketing strategy was perfect ans drove our results. She made the selling process easy.
Maria is a very hard worker and I would recommend Maria to all my friends and family. She will get the Job done.
BUYING OUR HOME
The most hard working Agent I have ever seen. Always went above and beyond every day. Not only did she help us find a home, she helped us find one under market value. We sold our home and we had been involved with multiple bid offerings on every home we tried to buy. Maria was incredible. Through her network she managed to find a home that met our criteria and we able to purchase it without a bidding war. Maria was incredible. Now let’s talk about above and beyond. We had scheduled several showings and Maria’s child was involved in a fender bender. I told Maria to cancel our showings but not only did Maria manage to attend to her child, she drove across the city to ensure we saw every house we were booked for.
While trying to find our home, losing out on homes to bidding wars; we had Maria driving from Markham to Barrie to Innisfill to Georgina to Whitby to Newmarket. We had her all over the place. Never complained once and ensured we were able to see every house we wanted to see.
On each house we were interested in, Maria would call the agent and work the deal. She is amazing at negotiating. Maria pulled through for us ans helped us find our home.
Thank you Maria for selling our home and helping us find a new one. The process from start to finish was painless thanks to you.
You are incredible.!!! This is the agent that I recommend and that gets results.
Don’t even think twice. Get Maria to help you. She is the best.

To whom it may concern.
It is with pleasure that we offer this reference for Maria Ongaro.
She was recommended to us by an associate in the business who told us she was very good in her role , quite detailed and very knowledgeable.
Maria presented to us the process of marketing our home, including recommendations for staging, photographing and developing an effective campaign that also featured drone footage.
Given her work was being done within the pandemic time , it was testament to her detailed understanding of protocols and nuances that would allow us to feature our home in a very safe manner.
Ultimately we came to rely on her judgement, experience and candor.
Looking back on the process we can see how her initial conversations and advice played out, leading us to the successful sale of our home . We would highly recommend Maria, as we found her to be a consummate professional and trusted advisor.

Thank you for your patience, persistence and professionalism in assisting us in the purchase of our new home Maria. Your knowledge of King City is mind boggling. You were great during the buying process and extremely helpful afterwords, which resulted in me labeling you as a walking encyclopedia as you had an answer or a phone number for every issue that arose. We will definitely work with you in the future and recommend you to friends and family.
Thank you, Garry and Yana

In regards to Maria Ongaro and Trends Realty my wife and I cannot say enough. She was professional, well organized and a pleasure to work with.

Maria’s energy, perseverance, and level of professionalism are a definite asset. She is a very knowledgeable realtor that goes above and beyond to get the best possible deal for her clients. We appreciated the professional and personal attention given to selling our unique property. It was refreshing to come across such a forthright realtor!
Natasa and Boris B., Toronto, On
Maria’s inquisitive mind serves her well in her work for no single real estate transaction is exactly like another. There are all sorts of similarities readily translatable between one transaction and another, some of which are necessary and useful such as examining the market of a particular neighbourhood to determine the best listing price. But there is always something new in each listing or with each client and she not only is perceptive but curious enough to relish the ‘something new’ as it inevitably arises.
