More than 15 years ago, I discovered an unexpected passion… helping people make solid and sound real estate decisions, and understanding the impact that my assistance could have on their lives. I quickly realized the value in what I do.
Having owned and renovated many properties throughout the years, including investment property, I have gained a unique and personal perspective on the realities of home ownership, and have lived in a variety of homes in many neighbourhoods throughout our beautiful city. The lessons learned from renovating century homes to designing and managing custom new construction projects, offer my clients an opportunity to learn from real experience.
Teamed with my husband, Joe Polenek, we have built a loyal clientele who appreciate our responsive, patient and thorough approach to helping them find the perfect home. Our experience and strategic marketing plan, will ensure your home sells for the best price possible with minimal stress.
Our success comes from merging our unique skill sets that are backed by almost 25 years of experience in the industry. Our clients believe in our ability to get the job done, the expertise that we provide, and the enormous benefits they receive from it.
I am by your side every step of the way. I provide information, recommend strategies and advise. Ensuring my clients have fun, feel at ease and in control is important to me. When they understand the real estate decisions they make, and make choices that enable them to meet and exceed their goals, I know I’ve done my job.
I get excited.
I know my stuff.
My clients and colleagues consistently seek my advice and rely on my judgement.
Simply put, I am trusted.
There are several great realtors in the Guelph area, but I wanted to work with someone who is unique, professional, approachable and shares the same vision as my fiance and I when it comes to real estate. We chose to work with Sophia Polenek in the sale of our condo as well as the purchase of our new home and I cannot say enough positive things about her! Sophia is very knowledgeable of market trends, extremely prompt to respond and made the home selling and buying process easy to execute throughout our every day busy lives. She truly is a go getter and we appreciated her 'right down to business' philosophy. Sophia did not hesitate for a second when I had a last minute change of heart regarding pricing of our property and accommodated my requests immediately. Additionally she made my experience stress free and put my nerves at ease when I received an offer while out of country with limited communication access.
She has a passion for building relationships with her clients and bringing their home buying dreams to life. Sophia is poised and sophisticated and has impeccable taste in home design and décor. She was very involved in assisting with selections for our new build and was more than willing to be present for all of those meetings. I have received several compliments on the beauty of my new home with its contemporary and chic style. I truly owe Sophia the credit for her recommendations and advice. I respect the professional relationship we maintained but also value the friendship that was built through working together. We highly recommend Sophia and Trillium West to anyone in the Guelph area looking to buy or sell a home.
We did a bit of research to choose realtors that fit our style and needs and were very glad we chose Joe and Sophia Polenek. They treated us very well during the housing market craziness in spring 2017. We had very specific needs and started our search from Winnipeg before we moved here. They spent a lot of time talking to us, asking questions and getting a clear picture of what we needed. They took the time to show us homes when we visited Guelph even before we were ready to buy. Then when we were ready they gave us great advice and we managed to buy the first house we put an offer on.
Sophia Polenek goes above and beyond and I love it. Her attention to detail, her aesthetic, and her engineering background gave me a lot of confidence in her approach. I felt very much like a team in the selling of my home and appreciated the little details she did to prepare the house for sale. Even though she was sick during the showing, she made sure it all ran extra smoothly and as a result, we got a quick sale.
