A FAMILY BUSINESS
With the experience of over 1,300 real estate transactions and having helped over 2,600 families buy and sell real estate over the years, The Mash Team knows a little something about selecting, negotiating, financing and selling real estate in Durham Region, Toronto and cottage country.
The family patriarch, John Mash (now retired), began his real estate career back in the mid 80’s. An active investor and advocate of real estate as a wealth building tool, he’s helped hundreds of young families get started in life owning the property on which they live.
When you want to find the definition of the word give all you need to do is look up the name Linda Mash. Because that is exactly what Linda has been doing for numerous decades. Giving back to the community, giving to those less fortunate and giving to her clients. The beginning of 2021 saw Linda celebrate her 25th year in the real estate industry helping people make the most important purchase or sale in their lives. And she has been great at that – so great in fact that she has won multiple awards and been recognized by both her peers and the associations she so well represents. She was also recognized by the Durham Real Estate Board for all her charity work and the way she continually makes a difference. Volunteering is Important to her. She believes that giving starts the receiving process. Since 2001 she has been volunteering and supporting the New Life Neighbourhood Centre during the Christmas season. She has also supported Saint Vincent's Kitchen by donating free meals, the Lakeridge Health Nephology Patients BBQ and Christmas Dinners, and Peer Support with the Kidney Foundation of Canada. She played a huge role in the Spirit Alive Outreach Ministry which has most recently provided lockers for the homeless in downtown Oshawa. During the pandemic she rolled up her sleeves and made hundreds of scrub hats and masks and ear guards to help support the front-line staff and other members of her community. In short, Linda is not afraid to give her time and energy. And that shows by the loyalty her many clients show her over her career. Speaking of clients,
Linda specializes in Move-Up Buyers, Multi-Family Residential, Seniors, and Luxury Homes. In other words, she touches all bases – and well. Add to that Linda had 13 years experience in Mortgage Financing so that is just one more tool in her kit that she can use to give her clients the edge.
Being a full-time working Mother of 2 lovely little girls, I really get the value in multi tasking. And that is exactly what comes into play in most real estate transactions.
