Leonard Fridman

Broker, Managing Partner

For over 20 years Leonard has been the leading specialist in urban multi-unit residential investment properties in Toronto. He moved to Toronto in his mid-20's from LA having spent his youth surfing big waves and watching real estate speculators get rich in the transitioning of Santa Monica and Venice Beach.

He immediately fell in love with Toronto’s historic Victorian homes and bought his first property within 3 months of arriving with a credit card advance. He began acquiring and restoring in Parkdale, Leslieville, the Annex, and other up and coming that have since become noted as some of the coolest areas of the city.

Since then he grew his portfolio with properties throughout the city as well as international urban markets. From renovation and to tenant management and financing, Leonard can almost always find a way to put the deal together when no one else can.
