Brian Ross

Brian is a seasoned real estate professional with over 30 years of experience and well over 1000 listings to his credit. In spite of his long career and numerous awards, however, Brian’s friendly approach, personalized service, and genuine interest in helping each client reach their real estate goals remain central to his success today.

Brian is passionate about real estate, and has been for most of his life when at the age of only six he took fervent interest in the sale of the house next door. Today, he is well positioned for the intricate and complex transactions in the ever-changing real estate market. He is able to pinpoint and nail value for both sellers and buyers, and the negotiation skills Brian has developed over the years are tough to rival.

During his down time you will find Brian, a long time Riverdale homeowner, enjoying the outdoors in nearby Withrow Park with his Goldendoodle Katie. Feel free to stop and ask him any questions you may have about real estate. Brian is happy to share his expertise, and when it comes time for you to buy or sell, if you do have the chance to work with him, you’re promised a comfortable, stress-free experience.

Dean Da Silva

Dean’s keen talent and passion for real estate was apparent from the very start of his career over ten years ago. He quickly attracted an extensive network of clients from all walks of life and, in his first three years, he won multiple awards and was recognized as one of the leading realtors in Toronto.

In 2008, Dean was invited to join RE/MAX Hallmark, and shortly after teamed up with Brian Ross, bringing his considerable experience in buying and selling central residential neighbourhoods and commercial real estate to the partnership. Dean’s transition throughout has been seamless, in large part due to his strong motivation and constant keen desire to serve his clients well. His knowledge of home construction and architecture, his extensive research skills and drive to find the best deal for a dollar, set him apart from many.

Dean lives with his wife, baby daughter and family dog Jada in Leslieville. When not at work, you will find Dean on the soccer pitch or chasing the best hidden dining in Toronto. And, if you meet him out and about, you’ll immediately pick up on Dean’s dedication, non-pushy style and logical approach – all qualities that will ensure a successful and rewarding experience for his clients in the years to come.

Danielle Da Silva

Sales Representative

Real estate must run in Danielle’s veins if you consider her Mom in property-management and her top producing real estate brother, Dean. And that would explain why now that she’s back in Toronto she’s transitioning so seamlessly into R+D from her previous career in hotel management in Western Canada and Australia.

Danielle brings a lot of worldly life experience to her new role. Born and raised in Toronto, her first move was to Montréal where she earned her B.A. in sociology from Concordia University. Upon completion of a post graduate certificate in sports and event marketing at George Brown, Danielle relocated to Whistler B.C. and a position with the Fairmont Chateau Whistler that saw her quickly promoted to Department Head responsible for managing the lounge, golf course and restaurant food and beverage teams. From there Danielle ventured further afield to Australia to continue in hotel management at the exclusive Hayman Island Resort.

Back in T.O., Danielle brings a unique skill set and a firm belief in the power of personalized service to her career in real estate. Her team appreciates Danielle for her thoughtfulness, her intelligence and her straightforwardness, and if you get to work with her, you will quickly come to appreciate her uncanny ability to establish and maintain personal and trusting relationships with her clients.

Judy Wilkings

Sales Representative

Real estate is a second career for Judy after more than twenty years in governmental affairs and human rights at Queen’s Park. Today, she is thoroughly enjoying delving into the world of Toronto real estate and loving the energy of the tight team of professionals at R+D. “The benefit of working with a team gives me the advantage of years of experience guiding and supporting me.”

Judy joined Brian and Dean in early 2014, bringing with her her organizational and people skills and her keen interest in real estate, design and architecture. Within only a month, she was acting as the buyer agent for her first clients. Watching her in the role, Brian called her a natural, saying “the business of real estate fits her like a glove.” She loves sharing her clients’ excitement and makes it a personal challenge to finalize the best deals that work for them. Brian observes that Judy’s special talents are her ability to listen, her genuine empathy and the fact that she’s a real people person. Judy’s caring personality led her to quickly acquire the Seniors Real Estate Specialist designation, to give her the necessary expertise to educate and help seniors with their choices for transitioning from their homes.

Judy has lived her entire life in Toronto’s east end. She calls the beautiful Scarborough Bluffs home and is married with a grown son and a dog named Maya. When she is not hard at work building her career and continuing her education in real estate, she is active in her community social and book clubs.
