About The Annex
Why I Love The Annex
Restaurants, Museums, and Art Galleries
The Annex’s restaurants offer a melting pot of flavours from around the world thanks to the influx of international students attending the University of Toronto. The Annex apartments offer potential homeowners the opportunity to live in an intellectually stimulating neighbourhood wherein weekends can be spent visiting the Royal Ontario Museum art and natural history museum – one of the largest in North America. The area is filled with great cafés for studying, working, or unwinding after a day spent walking around the university's historic grounds. For something more lively, Lee’s Palace is a well-known live music venue that hosts artists from around the world.
A Vibrant and Historic Neighbourhood
The Annex in Toronto real estate is brimming with beautiful homes that were built between 1870 and 1910 and feature Victorian-style accents with modern flair. Streetscapes in this neighbourhood are lined with ancient trees, cast iron street lamps, and cobblestone pathways. The Annex breathes new life through its well-known bars, nightclubs, music shops, bookstores, and specialty boutiques. A great spot for night-owls, some of the restaurants and cafés in the area are known to stay open late.
Easy and Accessible Transportation
Situated just north of the downtown core, The Annex is one of the top 10 most walkable neighbourhoods in Toronto. With its many amenities, residents rarely need to venture outside its borders, however, transportation here is incredibly accessible. The Annex residents have access to both main subway lines in the city – the Bloor-Danforth line and the Yonge-University-Spadina line – so commuting is not an issue.
As a first-time home buyer, there were a lot of things I didn't know. Steve was a fantastic realtor to work with because he is extremely knowledgeable about the market. Steve regularly went above and beyond in finding listing on or off the market. He paid close attention to my needs and wants and catered a plethora of great properties for me to see. Being so knowledgeable Steve gave me sound advice on potential properties even raising questions or concerns that I hadn't given thought to. Steve's patience, dedication, knowledge and ability to truly understand what I needed allowed me to find a place that I LOVE. I would highly recommend him. Steve, it was a pleasure working with you, looking forward to the next unit I purchase with you! 10/10 Realtor & Person
As a Realtor, I am extremely fortunate to have crossed paths with Steve. Realtors often call one another to seek advice, talk about the market, or compare notes on areas. When I called Steve for this purpose, he was not only willing to take out time from his day to speak with me, he went above and offered me information that truly had an impact on my business. Without a doubt, if you're fortunate enough to have Steve as a Realtor, you're in good hands. Steve, I hope we do business in the future.
Steve didn't waste my time. He kept his promises. It showed he cared about his clients who are my new landlords. Polite, personable, effective. Might call him up for my own real estate needs in the future!
When my wife and I had our first child we decided it was time to leave the condo life and find a place with a little more space. Steve not only helped us sell the condo at top dollar but also found us a home we can spend the rest of our lives in. He was always available and had all the answers we were looking for throughout the full process (which took months). His knowledge of the market was second to none and helped us make educated decisions during this very stressful process. J & T
Been through many purchases and sales, and Steve is by far the best agent I’ve dealt with. He is knowledgeable, helpful, trustworthy and overall exactly what you want in an agent. We purchased our home in Toronto virtually from New York and Steve made the process so comfortable and easy for us. Needless to say I would highly recommend him!
