“[Properly] enables the seller to get the necessary financing to buy their new property, close the deal and move in to the new home”
“A new model has emerged with Properly”
“Properly’s client-centric, common-sense way of doing things takes a complicated process… and makes it simple, stress-free, and straightforward”
“...a new way to substantially reduce the risk in the buying and selling process”

At Properly, we believe in creating a future in which Canadians can buy or sell a home with dramatically less friction, and surprising simplicity.

Buying or selling a home should be a celebrated milestone, but too often instead it’s stressful, risky, and expensive.

We pair top talent, innovation, and technology to transform the buying and selling experience, from dreaming about buying a new home, to closing the sale, and everything in between.

Properly currently operates in the Greater Toronto Area, and Greater Vancouver Area. We'll soon be expanding across Canada.
