Easy-going except when it comes to the details. Has never met a spreadsheet he didn’t like!
The Leafs and Jays, sunset cocktails on the dock and securing a great deal.
Roncesvalles. Great schools, activities and the city’s biggest park—everything you need within walking distance.
Cruising on the lake and a perfectly struck 5-iron to a well-guarded green.
Fantasy baseball (a.k.a. Dungeons and Dragons for sports nerds). Also scotch.
GETS HIM UP IN THE MORNING:
Freshly brewed coffee and playtime with his son Zac.
Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. – Seneca
What makes Greg Makin’s fantasy baseball team win year after year is exactly what makes him an expert in buying and selling income and commercial properties—a nose for value, an eye for detail and a head for numbers.
Greg’s clients can literally bank on his estimates, whether they’re for lease rates, supplemental parking, laundry income or expenses. He’s a careful listener and strategic analyst, able to find investment opportunities that match his clients’ risk tolerance and desired rate of return.
He came to real estate after earning a degree in economics, building a successful career in business operations and, most recently, starting a company that provides services for financial lenders. Introduced to the investment side of buying and selling homes at an early age—his parents turned over 10 properties in 11 years when Greg was a kid—he is now a property investor and landlord himself.
Turns out his hands-on understanding of the industry, competitive drive, ability to analyze trends and love of spreadsheets are just what his clients need to make sound financial decisions—and hit it out of the park.
