Curious, tenacious and helpful. You can count on him to give you the straight goods and get you the best deal.
Foreign films (particularly dramas), a thought-provoking art opening and losing himself in a good novel or short story.
Riverdale and Leslieville. His favourite view is of Riverdale Park and the city skyline from the patio at the Rooster Coffee House on Broadview—he can imagine he’s perched in a tree.
Exotic cars and exotic flowers.
Homemade affogato. (His recipe: place one scoop of vanilla ice cream in a small bowl, drizzle with a short espresso, and try to eat just one.)
GETS HIM UP IN THE MORNING:
Anticipation of an exciting day ahead. He’s always awake before his alarm.
“Don’t kill the dream, execute IT!”
When you work with Edward Azadeh, you’re getting four people in one: a firefighter, a professional engineer, a visual artist, and a licensed real estate professional.
“Real estate is the invisible thread that connects them all,” Edward says. “I’m always looking for the safety, structural integrity and design potential of a property. Is the basement safe with egress for fire protection? Is that crack in the foundation going to be a problem? What’s the flow in the home? What renovation would add the most value for my clients if they buy this home?”
A proud resident of Riverdale, Edward is Trust Realty Group’s neighbourhood specialist for both Riverdale and Leslieville. “There are lots of opportunities to create value here,” he says. “The whole area is the epitome of what makes Toronto great. You’ve got a multi-ethnic community, different kinds of housing, lots of amenities—especially along the Danforth—excellent transit and you’re close to downtown.”
Whether you’re looking for a fixer-upper or a designer’s dream, a vibrant nightlife or excellent schools, these neighbourhoods have it all—and Edward wants to help you find the right fit. He’s helped transform a rooming house back to a family home, advised on renovations to income properties, helped clients who want passive income from a basement apartment or an Airbnb, and assisted with a major decluttering project to create value for his clients. It all comes down to helping people. “That’s why I do this job,” he says. “I want to have a positive impact on someone’s life.”
