Big congratulations to @ryanserhant on the launch of his MUST READ “Sell It Like Serhant”! This book is so AWESOME, and I will have a bunch to give away in a week (Canadian release)! So, if you want one, like and comment below your favourite Ryan moment from TV and tell ALL your friends to buy TWO, one to read + one to gift! One catch, you will have to pick up your copy from me from Palace Place, Toronto’s most luxurious waterfront condominium residence! (First come, first serve. While supplies last. Confirmations will be messaged.)
Palace Place, 1 Palace Pier Court, Suite 4206 – For sale at $1,578,000
A fusion of style and privilege in a landmark building…
Breathtaking is the word that best describes Palace Place, which is the most prestigious and luxurious waterfront condominium residence in Canada. Suite 4206 is a visually arresting condominium residence, with approximately 2,028 square feet of luxury living space, 2-bedrooms, and the most enchanting views of the lake, the city, and the Humber Bay Shores parklands. This suite has been meticulously renovated for the discerning buyer, who appreciates quality workmanship and sophisticated styling.
Today, we had talked about the common questions of how to approach renovations.
Here are our tips:
1) First meet with your realtor (That’s me!) to discuss the investment you wish to make. For example, renovating your current home or condo might be a good idea, but, in the end, you are still in the same space. With proper guidance, you can decide if that money is not better spent upgrading to a new, larger home or if the investment you intend to make will justify a proper return.
2) Meet with an experienced designer (That’s Ramsin) to properly plan and design your renovation to your budget. This can be broken into two parts, the creation of a timeless design and a thoughtful plan and process for the renovation. For example, you might renovate the bathroom not realizing that the shower liner needs to be replaced. These little things can be costly and experience is what saves you a lot of money in the end, even if it costs a little more in the beginning. Most importantly, you will know it was done right and done to last.
3) Do not follow the crowd. Ignore what your neighbor did, what you saw on TV, or what the Home Depot guy tried to sell you. Good design is timeless, and it considers space continuity, use, form, and function. In the early 2000s, everyone thought Jatoba wood floors were cool. Today, they are viewed like carpet. A good designer will help you avoid fads in favor of timeless solutions. 80-year old homes in Rosedale have stood the test of time better than homes from the 70s because of good timeless design.
4) Top quality is top quality, cheap is cheap, and fast is fast, but you cannot have all three. You also have to be aware of where you are going to compromise and accept those compromises. Maybe you will pick more modest cabinets in favor of a better countertop and better appliances.
Tip of the week: If you are living in a condo, consider installing a central humidification system. Not only is this a critical solution for the protection of your wood floors and cabinetry, but also, most importantly, it will serve your health the most!

I had the good fortune of meeting Martino, the original Site Clerk for Bramalea for the construction of Palace Place. When Martino was 19, he had landed a dream job with Bramalea. He was onsite for every day of the construction of this now iconic landmark. It was amazing to share stories and learn new ones. People make the mistake thinking Palace Place is just another condo or the second Pier. When you learn of the advanced methods and technologies used in the construction of Palace Place, you really begin to appreciate its unrivalled reputation of excellence in the construction industry.
Stay tuned for the 25th Anniversary Edition of my Palace Place book!

Recently, Ryan Serhant from Million Dollar Listing New York had met up with Luke Dalinda in New York City to discuss some exciting opportunities.

Palace Place Special Announcement: Palace Place, 1 Palace Pier Court, Suite 703 sold for $1,210,000!
I have written to proudly announce that I have sold yet another residence at Palace Place by having just sold Suite 703 for $1,210,000 by having represented the seller.
Earlier, I had set the historic record price at Palace Place by having sold Suite 4001 for $1,980,000, or $700 per square foot, by having represented the seller. This achievement had allowed for a subsequent sale to achieve $831 per square foot!
Where else in Toronto can you get such fit and finish, such a spacious size, and such an enchanting view?
These marketing efforts have left me with several more buyers looking for similar Palace Place suites! In fact, they are ready to pay even more given the recognized value proposition Palace Place represents. If you have such a Palace Place suite, please call me ASAP!
Buyers take note!
In the condo world, newer is not better!
Do the math! This sale price of $609 per square foot is a bargain when new, inferior construction is charging up to $1,000 per square foot. Furthermore, this suite size in the downtown core would easily fetch $2,000 per square foot or more. Why buy the K-car when you can own the Mercedes-Benz?
Buyers want space, and, most importantly, buyers want quality. New construction fails to deliver these two key requirements. Palace Place offers unrivalled construction, spacious floor plans, 5-star amenities and services, and million dollar forever views that you cannot find in new buildings today!
Come see what Palace Place has to offer today!
