If you’re looking for one of Canada’s top Realtors and TV Personalities, you just found her.
Born and raised in Toronto, Sandra Rinomato became a Realtor at the suggestion of a friend. Her career in real estate soared when she connected her passion for helping people with the process of buying and selling a home. Her exceptional talents are a huge gain for her clients because she has a track record of getting more than 98% of the asking price for homes, ranging from modest properties to million dollar estates. Sandra excels at the art of negotiating, and whether you’re a seller or a buyer, you are in very capable hands, and always on a fair playing field.
“In the end I want to make sure everyone is treated fairly and armed with the right information and knowledge. I’m able to make sure my clients don’t get clouded by emotion and stay calm and focussed so that we can create a win-win situation.”
In 2006, Sandra was cast as the Host of HGTV’s popular program titled “Property Virgins”. A perfect fit, this gave Sandra the ability to help first-time buyers purchase their dream home while being able to share her extensive knowledge with viewers all over Canada and the U.S. “Property Virgins” was consistently HGTV’s number one show with much of the success being attributed to Sandra’s natural ability as a TV Presenter and her no nonsense approach to real estate. She has built on that success to become a certified real estate broker manager and also spends time mentoring struggling real estate agents through coaching sessions. “Coaching is extremely important to me, I love it and thrive on it,” she says.
In 2008 Sandra released her first book titled “Realty Check: The Real Scoop on Real Estate”. Writing the book was one of her proudest achievements because it was a life-long dream and a challenge to complete. She’s also the recipient of the coveted Stevie Award for Women in Business for Best Canadian Entrepreneur, and has toured across North America lending her expertise on programs like The View, CNN, Steven and Chris, The Nate Berkus Show and Marilyn Denis.
Sandra’s known for her big heart and involvement with many charities, including raising $30,000 for Breast Cancer Research, $40,000 for Toronto General Hospital, helping with an Annual Basket Drive for women’s shelters at Christmas, along with donating time to the Ontario Lung Association, Cancer Research, Coats for Kids and others. She is also an avid animal lover.
In 2012 after 130 episodes, Sandra decided that it was time to move on from “Property Virgins” to focus on something new. She is currently filming a new TV show titled “Buy Herself” which helps single women navigate their way through the real estate process.
In addition to “Buy Herself” Sandra has also opened up her own full service brokerage called Sandra Rinomato Realty Inc. With offices in Toronto’s west end, Sandra continues to help people achieve the dream of owning their own home. She is also a sought-after speaker for trade shows and private seminars.
