The Real World of Real Estate

by Gerald Tostowaryk


About Gerald Tostowaryk

Gerald Tostowaryk is known for industry expertise, customer service, and high ethics and integrity. He first became a member of the Edmonton Real Estate Board in 1991, and after six years in residential real estate, he began commercial real estate sales and leasing. Knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate, he assists clients with their commercial needs as well as their residential requirements.

His strengths are industry knowledge and client satisfaction, and he is recognized for his skill and dedication to meeting the needs of his customers.
He has always been an avid learner and works hard to maintain an unmatched level of industry knowledge. This has led to him being a valued instructor in many areas of the real estate industry from ethics to consumer behaviour and negotiation to leasing. He has instructed agents and property managers across Canada.

He has represented many clients buying, selling and leasing right from small commercial assignments (1500 Sq Ft) or residential home sales up to 30,000 sq ft industrial sales and is a well-respected tenant representative, known for working out fair and equitable arrangements.
He has earned several distinguished designations from the prestigious Fellow of The Real Estate Institute (FRI) and the Certified Leasing Officer (CLO) to the internationally recognized Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM).

Gerald has also served the industry and his community in many ways. In the community, he has been a Beaver Leader, a soccer and baseball coach, and in industry he has been a Board member and Chair of the Edmonton chapter of the Real Estate Institute of Canada as well as co-Chair of the Member Services Committee and a member of the Bylaw Review Committee at the Realtors Association of Edmonton.

Above and beyond expectations

Thanks very much Gerald for everything you have done. You did a great job of keeping us all in the loop at all times and we would highly recommend your services to anyone in the future

House Sale

My wife and I had thought about buying a house for while but didn't know where to begin, this was our first home. Gerry took us to look at as many houses as we needed to. I'm a plumber and consider myself to be pretty handy when it comes to fixing stuff. Gerry was able to see issues with some of the houses that I didn't even think of. And solutions to problems that I didn't even know existed. After 3 months of looking we found our perfect "fixer upper " home within our budget and our timeline. I would highly recommend working with Gerry, he is great to work with. No pressure and will work hard for you.

Home Purchase

Gerald Tostowaryk is very knowledgeable and provides very accurate price assessments. Never had any issues with ony questions he was asked. The one thing I really appreciated about Gerold Tostowaryk was when I wonted to list the house but we didn't agree on asking price he let me know why he didn't agree but in the end it was my decision ond he did what I asked for. I was never pushed into o decision I didn't want to make

Gerald was very professional and knowledgeable. He is an individual with a great deal of integrity and I would have no problem referring him to others. His negotiation skills are excellent and I always felt we were in good hands.

Edmonton (Seller)

We have had the opportunity to have worked with Mr. Gerald Tostowaryk in the capacity as a commercial realtor in Edmonton over the last 6 months. We have known Mr. Tostowaryk to be an honest and reliable person based on our business dealings with him when selling some commercial condominium units in Edmonton. Gerald's knowledge and experience in commercial real estate is multi-faceted. This allows Gerald to help bring together the most complex of deals ensuring the interest of all parties to the transaction are respected. We would recommend Mr. Tostowaryk to any person who is looking to buy or sell commercial reat estate in the Greater Edmonton region, as well we will seek his service in any of our future commercial real estate transactions.

"I would say that Gerald's strengths were in his knowledge of the commercial real estate business, the current market trends, and how the whole game is played. I found Gerald to be very calm and I sometimes wondered why a "salesperson" wasn't more pushy. Our dealings with Gerald have been over a 2.5 year period, and now that I ahve seen a commercial purchase from start to finish, I realize that all the advice Gerald gave along the way was accurate. I questioned it many times and didn't listen sometimes. Gerald was always right, and as this was our first time doing this, he continually made us aware of what our next steps my books Gerald is very knowldegable about the commercial market and if he didn't know the answer to a question he would find out."

D. Wiebe
Land Purchase

"Earlier this year we were looking for warehouse space. The real advantage I found in using Gerald as our real estate agent was his handling of the difficult negotiations with a local landlord who was being acquired by a national company at the same time we were leasing. Many parties and legal teams were involved. Gerald handled the difficult negotiations far wiser and amiably than I could have. When researching real estate agents I found his connections desirable as I knew dealing with local government agencies for licensing, permitting and logistics was helpful to me. He completed what I hoped he would maybe even better than I had hoped"

"Gerald is very organized and articulate. He is very conscientious in his duties"

K. Shaw

I just wanted to thank you for all of the work that you did in facilitating the transactions that led to Lock-Block Alberta Inc. finding a great office and yard in Edmonton. We are very fortunate to have found the perfect place to hang our shingle, so to speak. You truly under promised and over delivered in all aspects and if you ever need a recommendation or want to pass along my information to anyone that may be considering your service, please don’t hesitate.

Joe S., President, Lock-Block Alberta Inc.
Industrial Land and Yard Lease

Gerald was invaluable when I decided to grow my business. Having worked out of my home for a number of years, finding appropriate commercial space was an entirely new experience for me. I am a therapist first and business person a distant second, but my husband and I had been involved in residential real estate investment for over 10 years and we thought we knew what we were getting into, so started looking at places to purchase. I quickly found out that the process is much different, and without Gerald's help, would have made some very expensive mistakes that could have ruined by business in the long run...
