Kyle Cupido 
Real Estate Associate 
Sotheby's International Realty Canada

I look at the service I provide as a realtor through a unique lens. My perspective is this: while real estate services are commonly perceived as being solely results focused, I like to think of myself as the facilitator of a process. I provide you access to a host of services and expertise that will optimize your ability to make well-informed decisions that feel good and are right for you and your family. To me, if the process isn’t top-notch, the results won’t be either.
