Ferne Sherkin-Langer & Nina Castle

Ferne has been working a unique sort of magic in real estate for the past 25 years: she has that gift of finding the perfect home for a client, or finding a perfect buyer for a listed home.

Surprisingly enough, she chalks this up, at least partially, to her first career as a paediatric nurse and nursing teacher. “I know that nursing and real estate, to the untrained eye, don’t look like they have very much in common, but in fact they do. They both involve taking care of people during a very stressful process and helping them figure out what they need and how to get it,” she says. It’s that roll up your sleeves, no job is too difficult attitude that is Ferne’s signature move.

She wanted to keep the good stuff from her past career. It’s the importance she places on “honesty, integrity and attention to detail” that sets her head and shoulders above the competition. She is also a born and experienced teacher: “I am happiest when my clients learn the business of real estate from me,” she says, “and when they can tell ME how much a house should ‘go for’, then I know I have done my job well!”

Ferne’s priority isn’t just to find you a home: it’s to help you understand the whole process, so that you can make the best, most informed decision possible for yourself and your family.

Nina knows all about moving. Born in Cape Town, South Africa, she relocated to Toronto nearly 3 decades ago. Nina’s vast range of marketing and people skills are at work every day making a match between buyers and sellers: finding and selling dream homes is Nina’s passion.

Her elegant and compelling personality and intelligence, combine a keen mind honed by years of experience in sales, with genuine warmth and caring.

Whether you’re looking to work directly with builders to create and customize your fantasy home (Nina has long-standing relationships with some of the most exclusive builders in Toronto, many of whom actually seek her out for advice on layout, landscaping and other aspects of home design) or to find that special property, maybe not even available on the market, Nina’s efforts towards a successful “find” will wow you.

Nina has recently embraced the urban chic lifestyle most recently, by moving to Midtown. She has a whole new respect for her clients who have taken on the task of moving. “It can be brutal,” Nina says. “I can see even more clearly why we do what we do for clients” she emphasizes, “Having that team of people we project manage for every home, to lighten the load and take charge, is invaluable.”
