We were very lucky to have chosen an experienced realtor like Lida Noorafkan for the purchase for our new home. Moving from Vancouver, we had very few opportunities to come to Toronto to view listings. Lida worked with these time restraints, setting up multiple showings quickly and even gaining access to places on-the-go due to her numerous connections with Toronto realtors. Lida understood what we were looking for in terms of neighbourhood and proximity to work and schools, and we were able to find a home that met all our needs in a single weekend! Lida answered all of our questions right up until the close, she was always available on cell or text, and made us feel very comfortable in the buying process.

One of the better choices we have recently made was asking Lida Noorafkan to help us find a smaller place. We badly needed to downsize being well into our seventies. We were somewhat apprehensive at getting into the market but realized that it had to be done. As it turned out, Lida was a perfect choice. She led us through what was to us a daunting prospect, reassuring us and attending to every little detail, answering all our questions and making us feel that we were his only clients. She made it all so seamless and smooth. She found us the perfect place and somehow was able to put it all together. Our house sold within two days of coming on the market and the whole process from start to closing, moving into our new place took just about a month. We cannot speak highly enough of this realtor's dedication and her superior knowledge of the business. Lida is no longer our realtor, we consider her a friend.
Lida's professional reputation is well known but we appreciated her personal approach to selling our home. We were certainly not disappointed by her performance as our house was sold almost before the sign hit the lawn. Lida's expertise and knowledge of the market was certainly beneficial. We are happy we chose Lida and would recommend her to anyone who is selling or buying.

We would like to thank you for the great job you did in selling our house in the Richmond Hill area. You worked tirelessly for us and did more than any Real Estate Agent has ever done in providing assistance on the sale of a house. In addition to advertising and prospecting, which you did an excellent job at, you also went above and beyond by working with a decorator to update our interior, landing us a tenant and then monitoring her, looking at refinancing assistance for us, and helping make sure everything came together at the close. Again, we have never seen a Real Estate Agent work so hard, or do so much, in helping sell a house.
Thank you! You are the best.

To Whom it May Concern,
I had the privilege of working with Lida as my realtor when looking to purchase a home in Toronto or Markham area. Lida’s knowledge about real estate is multi-faceted and she is most certainly able to do more than the average agent. I appreciated her ability to advise me post home inspection; and when a situation took place with financing, she was there to help and support me in every possible way possible. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lida Noorafkan to any person who is looking to buy or sell a home, as well as seek her service in any of my future real estate transactions.
To Whom it May Concern,
It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with Lida Noorafkan in the listing and sale of our home. The experience at each phase of the sales effort was superior, such as innovative efforts in developing prospects, useful insights on pre-listing renovations/staging, effective showings and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations/due diligence.
All of these tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a noticeable degree of competence, humility, integrity and grace.
Thus, we highly recommend Lida Noorafkan for residential real estate needs.
We really appreciated that Lida answered our call on a weekend evening and helped us to get the property we really wanted at a fair price. Our lawyer also commented on how “good” the contract was that Lida had written in our favour. We felt like she was an advocate for us in our buying experience.”

“We’ve had not so great experiences with real estate agents in the past, and felt like just a “number”. For the first time ever, we actually felt important and listened to by our fabulous agent Lida. She was there with us every step of the way, supported us through the hurdles and helped us snag our amazing new home! Lida really made us feel like we were her only clients, even though I know she was very busy helping others. She answered our calls and emails right away, was always organized, professional and on point – and looked great doing it (love you clothes Lida)!
Thank you so much for all your help! ”

We were extremely pleased with the service we received from Lida Noorafkan during our recent transaction. It was our first condo purchase and we weren’t from the area so it was great to have such a professional and thorough agent to guide us through the process. We would highly recommend Lida and the Re/max Diamond Realty to anyone whether they are buying or selling.”

Thank you! Lida was a delight to work with – professional, knowledgable, flexible, and patient. You likely know all this, but let me tell you, home buying in Canada was an entirely foreign process than what we are accustomed to here in California. She gently guided us through the process, advised us appropriately, and made on target referrals. Your firm was recommended to us. We’ll be delighted to pay it forward. Again, thank you for making our purchase as unencumbered as possible.

If you’re thinking about listing your home and you’re not sure which agent to list with, may I suggest that you list with Lida Noorafkan?
While it might not seem that the listing agent matters, let me tell you – it does.
Not all situations are alike. You may need to sell quickly, you may want to get the highest price even if it takes a bit longer, you might want to do improvements to reduce sales time but aren’t sure what will matter. Lida Noorafkan. I listed my home with two other agents before her and neither of them understood my unique situation. They both used the same strategy they had used with every other client when the real estate business was easier… and they both panicked when a quick sale didn’t happen.
Lida was patient. We worked the game plan together, and she gave wise counsel along the way. We did some judicious updating, tweaked the plan as we went along and we hit my goals. Most importantly, we sold my home for more than my prior agents thought possible.
Across the homes and cities I’ve lived in, there are only two agents I’ve done business with which I trust implicitly Lida. If you want a listing in the MLS and a sign in the yard, you can get that anywhere. If you want a trusted partner, you want Lida.
