Who is Chip Barkel?
Chip Barkel has lived in Toronto for many years. He’s spent time living downtown Toronto, Toronto East, and now Willowdale, in what was once the City of North York. He has always given back to his community, through several years of volunteer work at a hospice and facilitating grief workshops. He has chaired fundraising events and coordinated social media for Parkview Neighbourhood Garden.
To Chip, being a REALTOR® means more than selling homes. It’s about a relationship based on trust, integrity, knowledge, and expertise. He holds the MCNE (Master Certified Negotiation Expert) and SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist) designations. He is also a committee member of the Young Professionals Network (YPN) at the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB).
Chip feels that buying or selling your home is one of the biggest investment decisions you will make. He sees his career in Real Estate as a facilitator and resource to help his clients find and acquire their dream home, or sell their property for the best price possible. Toronto is a very fast-paced real estate market. He truly cares about his clients and the decisions they make and strives to help simplify and navigate that process. His goal is extraordinary service and top results for each and every client.
