Alkins Real Estate Ltd. Brokerage
Alkins Real Estate began in 1948 with the same attributes that we share with our clients today: a strict code of ethics, honesty and a genuine care for our clients needs. It's been
part of our continued success and the reason why so many of our clients return to us.
Our early beginnings involved selling land to home builders and industrial developers in the emerging community of Etobicoke.
Today, we sell houses and condominiums; we sell and lease commercial and investment properties; we sell and lease industrial buildings. We are often involved in estate transactions,
matrimonial and tax situations, appraisals and consulting.
We have earned the designations of CRA and FRI.
What is a CRA?
The Appraisal Institute of Canada (AIC) was founded in 1938. The AIC is the premier real property valuation association in Canada. As a self-regulating professional organization, AIC grants the distinguished Accredited Appraiser Canadian Institute (AACI) and Canadian Residential Appraiser (CRA)
designations to individuals across Canada and around the world.
AIC members are highly qualified valuation professionals who undertake a rigorous program of professional studies, examination and experience before being granted a designation. The Institute also supports the principles of lifelong learning through a mandatory continuing professional development program and requirements to complete
their professional practice seminar on a regular basis. This ensure that the members have the most up-to-date education and skills to offer their clients.
The education, experience and life long learning requirements that AIC has put in place ensure that the real value expert you hire will provide you with the most professional valuation expertise and opinions in the marketplace. Put your trust in the most highly regarded designations in the real property marketplace.
