We like her!
We want to take this opportunity to thank Shannon Scala for helping to make our condo buying experience an extremely positive one. After a very difficult time selling our home of 41 years with another realtor, she assured us that working with her would be different and that we would have a memorable experience. She did not disappoint. After our first meeting, we wrote "we like her" on the back of her business card. That feeling has only gotten stronger after working with her. Shannon if soft spoken, not at all pushy and just an all-around nice person. We would recommend her to anybody looking for a real estate agent."
P.S. We showed Shannon what we wrote behind her business card, she was so surprised and happy, big smile on her face.

Selling during the Pandemic
"When we decided to sell our house amidst the pandemic, we weren't sure what to expect from the real-estate market, nor did we know what to expect when acquiring a house in this type of situation. Fortunately, we were able to work with Aldo and his team and we couldn't be more satisfied with Aldo's team and their services. But what made our experience particularly special was the exceptional treatment and comfort Aldo provided himself personally during both transactions. Having bought and sold before in the past, we were impressed by his honest, warm, and candid personality that is coupled with many years of sales experience. He is the best agent we have worked with by far and would recommend Aldo in a heartbeat."
We purchased our first home with Shannon Scala and our experience was great. She was very helpful and responsive and helped us to set realistic expectations as first time buyers. Thanks to this we were able to find a place that is perfect for us and was comfortably within our budget.

Please accept our Heartfelt Gratitude!
John And Jan McBride
Thank you very much for your help and guidance in the successful sale of our home. We were very impressed with your professionalism in the final negotiations.
Kay And Graham
Aldo was highly recommended to us from a contractor we had hired. From the time we met Aldo, we knew he was a very professional realtor. During the renovation, he would stop by and see how things were progressing. We it came time to sell, we interviewed 2 others. They did not explain to us on how they market the house, but said here’s what other houses are going for. Aldo gave us a 40 minute presentation on how he markets a house. Very professional. Aldo also was right on the money for a sell price.
During the week it took to sell, Aldo and his team were updating us daily on the people who came through and their comments. I would highly recommend, Aldo Udovicic and His Team and will use him the next renovation we do.
Aldo Jr. made my first time home buying experience a great one. He showed us a few houses and we found our dream house within the first day! His professionalism and his knowledge in the industry is extraordinary. I was very nervous about buying a home for the first time and he made the process very easy to understand and it went very smoothly. Aldo Jr. was very accommodating and we definitely would recommend him and his team to anyone who is planning to buy or sell their home.
Katherine & Cole
Just a quick note to tell you thank you so very much for all of your help with the sale of my home. You made this task an easy one for me and I do appreciate all of your hard work and good advice as we went through this process. Living in a home for 40+ years and then having to sell it is a very emotional thing, but, you made it easier and made me feel comfortable with all aspects of the sale. I especially appreciated when you even made the effort to speak to me in Italian so that I could fully understand what the buyers were talking about!
I would certainly recommend your service to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. You came recommended to me and I’m so glad I listened! Thank you for everything!
To start with, it was indeed a pleasure to be working with Shannon and you. Shannon understood our requirements, limitations and BELIEFS and she did a great job of balancing all three. If she thought something was not good for us, she was quick to point it out. She did not push us into anything except for the final push (much needed) and that was when we made the offer. The added touch was when you personally visited our house and offered your feedback with an assurance to help us with the rental of the basement. A big Thank you to both of you and we too are happy to be part of the Remax family. We have a couple of friends who are interested in buying property but as the market is cooling down, they want to wait a bit before getting into it (but is it really cooling down?).
Swati And Saurabh Bose
On behalf of our family, we would like thank your good office for providing good service to us. We thank you for being agreeable to our requests and making our home searching a stress free experience. Hope to see you again sometime in the future.
Emil And Connie
I just wanted to say thanks again for your help in the whole home buying process. His low-key approach and impressive listening skills helped me feel that Aldo knew what I was looking for and wasn’t wasting my time looking at places that weren’t a fit. I never felt pressured to buy something quickly. Aldo’s attitude of wanting to get me into a place I felt fantastic about was the key. During negotiations, Aldo helped me manage to get the home I wanted for a good price. I highly recommend having Aldo on your side during any real estate purchase!
As both Sarah and I were new to the whole selling our house thing, I must say, with the help of Aldo jr and the rest of the team everything went really well. All and any of our questions we had were answered fully and honetsly. Which was refreshing.
Also the confident and proffesional attitude of my agent, Aldo jr. , helped keep our minds at ease. Knowing we would get what we wanted, finding comparable listings, getting more showings than we could have ever imagined, puttin together the brochure for our home and much more of the little things that all really helped with the whole process.
I can’t thank your team enough for making a stressful time more peaceful! Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
I recently sold my condo with the help of Re/Max Crossroads Realty Inc. and The Aldo Udovicic sales team. Tia Olstrom, my sales representative was professional, helpful and fun to be with. The girls in the office making the appointments were very nice. If you are thinking of selling your property then The Aldo Udovicic Sales Team are the team for you.
Tia, Aldo and the rest of the Aldo Udovicic Sales Team were a pleasure to work with when we turned to them for help finding an investment property that perfectly matched our requirements. They worked fast, were readily accessible and were helpful guiding us through the buying process from start to finish.
Garrick & Olga
I was very pleased with the service I received from Tia in my search for a new home. Tia was always very accommodating to book viewings of condos that I was interested in and she always arrived on time to pick me up. She was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the search and purchase process. I’d definitely recommend Tia and your sales team to friends and family looking for a Realtor in North Toronto.
I was very please working with Tia and the team and will again use and recommend your services.
We are very happy with your service and we got our dream place to live. Thank you for every bit of support that we needed, Hope will have more business with you in future.
Sadia And Kafil
Susana and I want to express our sincere appreciation for your excellent advice and service on the recent sale of our investment property. This is our 6th real estate deal you have handled for us. Knowledge , Integrity, Openness, and Passion are words that come to mind when we think of you both.
From your ability to coach parties on all sides of the transaction, to your unbelievable network of professionals (general contractor, electrician, floors, paint, you name it!!), to your handsome smiles (my wife made me add that) you truly are at the pinnacle of your profession when it comes to the value you provide. We are grateful to continue our beneficial relationship with you for many more years to come.
Paul And Susana Philip
I would like to take the time now to thank you and Shannon for all the hard work you both put into making my experience of buying my first home a great one. I cant thank you enough for all the hard work and time that was spent going to many different homes and taking the time to really explain how the entire process works.
As I had mentioned earlier I had never bought a home before so being that this was my first, it couldn’t have gone any better. Shannon took the time to educate me on the process and was extremely polite and accommodating. Ultimately the end result was exactly what I was looking for. I am happy to say I am a new home OWNER. I have already recommended you to my brother who is looking for a new house, and if I’m not mistaken I believe he has just purchased his new home thanks to both you and Shannon. I will gladly recommend you to everyone I know.
One day down the road when I am ready to make the next step in my life and move into another home I will be sure to use your services once again.
Overall, we were very pleased with everything that Shannon did for us. She took the time to explain every detail of home buying, and that was greatly appreciated as we were very new to the process. With a future move we will definitely be going through you again. Thank you for providing us with great services.
We thank you all so much for your great services and we’ll definitely recommend your company and specifically you, to all of our friends and family. We truly hope you keep in touch with us and we’ll do the same. Once again we’d like to thank you for everything, Aldo. You kept your word and found the perfect house that meets all our needs.
The Vieira Family
When I received the initial call from Remax I was not actively looking to purchase a home but I was interested enough to listen to what your agent had to say. Before I knew it I had signed a contract with Sade and we were out looking at homes. I purchased the second home we looked at. Even the lawyer Sade had referred me to was excellent.
My experience with every person on your team, from beginning to end was wonderful. Sade was always professional and knowledgeable and she went out of her way to get us the best price on our condo. Aaron worked tirelessly to get a lender who would offer me a mortgage, even with my less than perfect credit rating, and at a great rate. He always responded immediately to any concerns I had.
I will definitely recommend Remax to my family and friends. Thank you to you and your team for making me feel like a valuable client.
The service we have received from Aldo and his team at Remax helped us to decide on buying our home one year older than planned. The dedication and understanding of our needs where above expectation.
Ayman & Dalia
Sade was both personable and professional right from the get-go. She offered us an introductory package about the Aldo Udovicic sales team and gave us a presentation on the buying process, as this was our first time as home buyers. This introduction proved valuable during our entire hunting process. Sade made it easy in keeping the lines of communication open, so we had no problem in telling her exactly what we liked/didn’t like in the first homes we had looked at. As she got to know my husband and I better (in such a short period of time!), she knew which areas and what houses to look at so as not to waste anyone’s time. Andrew & I have two small children, and so juggling our schedules around them as well as our careers proved difficult at times. Sade was very flexible and understanding in our frustrations with this matter and juggled her schedule (as much as she could) around us to help alleviate this stress.
Sade also offered us contact names of lawyers, brokers, etc. There was no pressure to use any of these contacts, but she offered any information and advice she knew about the contacts and the roles they played in us purchasing a house. Although our experience with our broker was a rocky one, it was no fault of Sade’s, but she made sure that our frustrations were heard and then known amongst her team. In the end, Andrew & I felt that our concerns were dealt with and that everyone had done their job to the best of their ability.
We had made a couple of offers on houses- this is probably the most stressful part of buying a home. Sade kept us in the loop the whole time and never left us sitting around at any length wondering what was going on. When we made the offer at 167 Wolverleigh, Sade’s phone had died before she could tell us any news. It was late at night, and yet, she drove across the city to tell us in person that our offer was accepted!
We are now a few weeks into being home owners. We have not yet officially moved in as we are up to our ears in renovations. When we had first walked through this house, we shared with Sade the potential this house had to be “ours”. She expressed her own thoughts and ideas, but said she knew that we had found a house that had the character to be our home. We can’t wait for Sade to come back and see what we’ve done- she’ll know what I am talking about when I say that we’ve been “smashing” things up. I hope in the future Sade can visit once in awhile, not just to stay updated on all of our house projects, but because we got to know her as well and think she’s pretty great.
Thanks Aldo and team- for training Sade for a bright future in real estate and for helping us find our first home.
Lindsay & Andrew
I can’t believe it has been already 2 month’s since we moved into our new house and it sure feels like we’ve been here for way longer! We love our new house and are enjoying every minute in it, we’ve been lucky to find this special place we can call home! So, thank you very much for your professional advice, patience, support and dedication in helping us find this little gem!
Pieter & Lynanne
Just wanted to take a minute to tell you how helpful Tia Olstrom was in finding the right home for me. She started by giving me an informative presentation and then proceeded to understand what I was looking for by asking the right questions. She sent me listings of homes very quickly…
Although I didn’t anticipate to buy anything till at least 6 months down the road, I ended up finding something in weeks. It was a pleasure working with her, and I must say that if there were any glitches, she handled them calmly and patiently. I will definitely recommend Tia again to any of my friends
Aldo and Shannon did a fantastic job in determining what we were looking for in a condo, talking into account size and location. They focused their search on our requirements and it only took two property visits before we found exactly what we wanted. Our experience was a great one and we would highly recommend Aldo and Shannon to our family and friends.
At first we were concerned at how young Aldo Jr. is and his experience. But learned quickly not to worry. When the owner was reluctant to meet and make the deal because the home had been listed less then 24 hrs Aldo was relentless in making the meeting occur. Aldo made buying a home easy with the team around him. He referred us to a home inspector, Aaron the mortgage broker and John the lawyer. Now if he could make moving in as painless that would be awesome. My niece and her husband are looking at purchasing their first home in the next year I will be referring Rachel to Aldo and his team of professionals. Highly satisfied clients.
Loriann, Stefan And Michael
I had the pleasure of working with Shannon and Aldo during the purchase of my first home and it was an exciting process. Shannon went out of her way to accommodate our requests and needs in order to find the right home in an efficient manner. For example, as we came to the conclusion of our search, we spent the last day traveling all over the city for about 12 hours! (at my request of course), during which Shannon displayed her true desire to assist us with a high caliber of customer service — very positive attitude. Their commitment and expertise in all the various facets of the home purchasing certainly made my first experience smooth and enjoyable.
Choosing Aldo as our real estate agent was the best decision we could have ever made as first time home buyers. My husband and I knew very little about purchasing a home and Aldo took the time to educate us on how to be an informed buyer. Aldo never made us feel pressured to make a sudden decision and always gave us personal space to talk to privately about the house. If we ever decide to move again, Aldo will be our go-to-guy! Thanks for everything Aldo!!!
Natalie And Anthony T
To get your home sold, There’s only ONE place to go, For service that’s top rate, It’s got to be Aldo. I took his comments to heart, And we staged it to show, Paint touchups, no problem, The sale was a go. His facts were upfront, And I trusted his “know”, The condo sold in ONE day, My thanks to Aldo.
At some point we felt like Aldo Jr was our family member as he took our real estate needs and challenges seriously and personally. To him, our failure in such process would be his own failure. For this reason, he put everything together for us in order to help and assist us to successfully handle our home hunting and purchasing process: Commitment, passion, advice, availability, honesty, great relationship and simply a very first class customer service towards us. This put us in a very comfortable situation in purchasing our house. As a result, we made a very informed decision when the time came to make our decision. Everything happened in less than three months period. Thanks a bunch Aldo Jr and the whole Aldo team. I’d definitely refer my peers, friends and family members even co-workers to you should they express any real estate need. With you they’re going to be in great hands and I am confident that they will be grateful to me after benefiting from your great real estate services. I really don’t know what we can give you Aldo Jr to express our deep appreciation. Even this testimonial is not good enough to show our level of appreciation towards you and your whole team at the Aldo Team.
Marcellin & Georgine
Choosing Aldo Jr as our real estate agent has been the best decision we’ve made regarding such matter. We remember, it was a very cold winter Tuesday night when we didn’t know what to do after being notified by the bank that our mortgage application was approved. Based on the bank advise, we could start searching for a property to buy in our qualified mortgage amount range. As we were searching on the internet, we happened to get in touch with a kind gentleman who referred us to the Aldo Team. As soon as we got in touch with Aldo Jr, our home hunting became such an enjoyable and serious task for both Aldo Jr and us. From day one, we knew that Aldo Jr was the man of the situation. From the presentation session he conducted just for us about the real estate market in the GTA, house buying requirements to the actual home purchasing itself, Aldo Jr has shown a very strong real estate skills blended with extraordinary professionalism and passion.
Your team had our house sold very quickly; within a few days! We had a long search for our new home but we found it, in a place we never expected. It's all thanks to you! All around a positive experience.
I would like to thank you for the third property we closed. Between purchase and rental, You have met and exceeded my expectations. You always had the perfect and best property that made the closing decision very easy and fast. I enjoy your insight into the potential of each property, being highly ethical, and resourceful. I look forward for more closing in the future. Aldo, I enjoy our business and strongly recommend your services to others.
We wish to express our thanks for the extra effort you put into the sale of our house. Your many visits while the house was being renovated were much appreciated. The suggestions on the renovation were very helpful. Shannon kept us up to date during the sale process. After the sale, there were a few issues of which you kept us up to date and successfully resolved. When it comes time to sell our family home we will be calling you.
Joan And Murray
Thank you Aldo and your team for your hard work in selling my mother's house. You were courteous and friendly and available anytime to answer the smallest question.Your experience in the Toronto market allowed you to convince us to do upgrades that made the house sell in a week. This was especially good for us since we live in a different city. Thanks Aldo for helping us. Congratulations on 26 years in the real estate field!
We are very happy for all your group effort in helping us to purchase our first house in Canada. We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude especially to SHANNON for her untiring effort and patience which made everything perfect.and possible. YOU ALL DID AWESOME GUYS!
Indeed, we will recommend you to our friends and relatives. We will just let you know if someone we know will be ready to buy a house. Thank you very much for the gift that you will be giving to us.
Darwin & Glory
I would just like to write a few words about Aldo Udovicic. From day one, Aldo was helping me not only get my old condo ready to be sold, but also helping me find a new one. My old condo needed a lot of work to be done to upgrade it, and Aldo arranged for new flooring, new mirrored doors on my closets, had the entire condo painted, and arranged to have it cleaned.
Once you contact Aldo, you know you are in good hands. He is never too busy to take your call or respond to you either through email or text messaging. I am very happy with my new condo, and did get a good price for my other one. I would highly recommend Aldo to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
I still remember that evening when we first me Shannon. Her professionalism and the way she presented the overall home buyer process blew us away. She also mentioned that the budget that we had was a good one and it is indeed possible to find a house within Toronto which would fit our requirement.
To be honest, initially we were a bit sceptic as she wasn’t referred by anyone and hence it had to be a leap of faith from our side to go ahead with Shannon; and yes we decided to take that plunge and I am so happy today that we took that decision of going ahead with Shannon. From that day onwards, we went for several visits across the length and breadth of Toronto and with each visit it wasn’t only Shannon who was getting to know us better( and our needs and wants) but we were also getting to acquire knowledge about the real estate market as well as getting a better clarity of our must haves and the nice to haves.
Within a few weeks it was apparent that Shannon was more aware of what our wants and needs are ( than us) and it gave us such a comfort to have someone who not only had immense knowledge about the real estate market but also had the insight into the client’s mind.And although there were disappointments along the way of expectations not being met when we say some houses, but it was fun all the while; despite being the professional that she is, Shannon is also an extremely fun person to be with, my 3 year old kid adores her.
So we kept on searching for a couple of month and after an initial offer that didn’t go through for a lovely house in Pickering ( we got out-gunned by a much higher offer), finally we have been able to find a house within Toronto which ticks most of our must haves and we are very thankful to Shannon for all the effort that she had put in for us to get the house.
I don’t take referrals lightly but I can honestly say that I would refer Shannon to all my friends and I am confident that she would do a great job. We started of this journey of finding our first house with a real estate agent named Shannon, we end this journey not only by having a great house but also having a great friend by our side in Shannon. Thank you.
We had been renting for the past five and half years and after a long deliberation we decided that it was about time that we owned a house in GTA. However the initial phase wasn’t easy. All we knew was to get a pre-approval from the Banks in order to start the process. So I got the Bank pre-approval done and went about browsing the various real estate site listings.A friend of mine referred me to a real estate agent and gave good reviews about this person.So we decided to meet him.However when we provided him with our requirements and the budget that we could afford, he initially was apprehensive and asked us to up the budget that would help us in meeting our must haves. We couldn’t, however he did send us some listing ( within our budget) which we didn’t like. In the meanwhile, Andy P from your team contacted me and told me that someone from your team can come over and guide it.
We recently had the benefit of working with the Aldo Udovicic team on the sale of our home and the purchase of our condominium. Aldo helped us through the entire process with patience and efficiency. He had the contacts and took the initiative to arrange all the renovations. The work was done quickly and within budget. Aldo took a hands-on approach to make sure everything was perfect for the showing of our home. The house sold above asking price in no time at all. His assistance did not stop there, his team graciously helped us to find our current home and we could not be happier with the location and views. The Aldo Udovicic team took what is typically a stressful process and made it easy.
Lee And Family
I’ll start by saying Maria and I are loving our new home. Aldo and Shannon did a great job with helping us find a great home. I know you guys are busy with other clients but always made time for us whenever we asked you too. One thing I want you to know is how much we appreciate your honesty throughout the whole process.
You don’t find many real estate agents telling you not to buy a house, but you wanted to make sure we found the perfect home and didn’t want us rushing into anything. I want to thank you and Shannon for all your help and look forward to working with you again.
Daniel And Maria
I will be going to the bank today to pick up the funds for your brokerage and should have it to you by the end of the week or early next week at the latest. Also wanted to say, it was a real pleasure working with Shannon.
She guided us through our first time buyer nerves and helped us understand we made the right choice even when we may have had some jitters. She followed up each step of the way and accommodated around our schedules. She helped with finding a lawyer and a mortgage broker and home inspector. We felt that we could trust her from the first time we met her.
Trust goes along way. Please let us know if you need anything else. Thank you again for making the home buying experience easy and seamless.
