    Hey there! I'm Adil. I work in Markham with Century 21 Percy Fulton with home sellers and home buyers. With my experience of 29 years and over 1,100 properties sold, I have helped many clients find their dream home or sell their home for more than they expected. The best praise I've ever received from a client was: "Our experience with Adil has been fantastic. He is so diligent in what he does. There was always instant communication from him. We feel we made the right decision in hiring him. I would recommend him to anyone. In fact, we had friends who were looking and we recommended him to them - amazing.” I don’t think of selling homes as a job, I think of it as a responsibility. Whether you’re selling and need a specific amount of money out of the sale or you’re buying and you have specific needs, I will not rest until you’re happy. What drives me is the smile on my clients faces when they get what they want. If you're looking for a Realtor who you can trust with your most valuable asset, I'd love to work with you. I'm humbled to have been recognized as one of the top teams in Canada for Century 21 for 13 consecutive years. When I'm not helping people, I love spending time with my kids and I also love sports.
