Conversations with Canadian Game Changers Video Series Published
Great people, important topics, strong leaders. These are some of the phrases used to describe our most recent content series, Conversations with Canadian Game Changers. All seven episodes, plus the original 2-part interview with brand ambassador Russell Peters, have now been published and we couldn’t be happier to tell such great stories and get so many incredibly diverse perspectives on the future of Toronto real estate and many other topics.
We are grateful for our guests and the time they took out of their schedules earlier this year to join us at the incredible Grand Touring Automobiles dealership and sit down for a chat about Toronto, the economy and life in general. It was a great experience for us at TCS and we hope that you were able to watch, learn and enjoy.

The event featured some of the biggest names in the Miami real estate industry, including Fortune International’s Edgardo Defortuna, Gil Dezer, Douglas Elliman’s Jay Phillip Parker, Kobi Karp, ONEsir’s Daniel de la Vega, Ronny Finvarb, and Royal Palm Companies’ Dan Kodsi.

TCS Polestar Client Incentive Update
Continuing the tradition of creating unique and never-seen-before incentives for our clients, the partnership with Polestar culminated with happy clients heading to a Polestar dealership and picking up their free Polestar 2 all-electric vehicles. We strive to do what no other firm can do and being able to provide a significant number of clients with a free two-year walk-away lease on the luxury 2023 Polestar 2 cements that fact for TCS.
Both recent vehicle incentives (adding to the Jaguar program in 2020) are not being made by other firms in the industry, that is the TCS advantage.
TCS’ long-standing history supporting the CardioLink clinical trials program at St. Michael’s Hospital received some great news this fall. Dr. Subodh Verma, who runs the program, gave an update to all major donors, including TCS.
With the help of all supporters, the Foundation was able to raise the $430,000 required in matching funds to unlock a significant amount of CIHR funding (Canadian Institutes of Health Research).
The research presented showed data for why people have strokes after heart surgery and is making great inroads into improving outcomes for these patients. In addition, the research is looking at ethnic determinates for risk of heart disease.
Congratulations to Dr. Verma and his team as well as the St. Michael’s Foundation.
Simon Mass Presents at Elevate Conference for High Rise Living
Earlier in December, TCS CEO Simon Mass was invited to participate and present on a panel at the brand new Elevate conference in Miami. The conference was conducted by Zonda and Livabl and was dedicated to high rise living. Simon spoke along with Ed Carey of Audience Town and Jay Parker from Douglas Elliman Real Estate and the topic was Sales and Sales Innovation in today’s market. Simon spoke about some of the incentive programs that TCS has run in the past few years including the Jaguar and Polestar car programs as well as the free fully-furnished bespoke unit program. The conversation found its way to talking about organic growth and marketing which led to discussing the frenzy that TCS and Simon were a part of with Kawhi Leonard and his free agency, potentially re-signing with the Toronto Raptors.
TCS Supported Velo Blu
TCS was extremely proud to support and participate in the 4th annual Velo Blu Pedal for Blu Genes. Another great day down in Niagara and the growth of the event is truly magnificent to see as the number of riders, participants and sponsors all came in at record numbers. TCS thanks all involved for putting on a great day and most importantly for raising over $440,000 to support SickKids research, the largest donation in the history of the event.
This year the TCS team of riders represented very well with our CMO Richard Kuypers in attendance as well. Very proud of our team member, Parmiss Ghooparanloo, who donated one of her unique art pieces from her charitable organization, Parmiss Art.
Philanthropy and charitable endeavours continue to be the backbone of TCS and its team members.

Secure Your Investments with TCS' full-time licensed and dedicated brokers
Lately we have been receiving a large number of inquiries about leasing, assigning and selling units through our brokerage division. Please note that we have a team of licensed, award winning, and dedicated full time real estate brokers on staff that are specifically retained by TCS to manage our ownership group's own properties as well as all those of our clients. This value-add service is part of our promise to provide full turn-key services so that all your investment needs are met under a one-stop-shop platform.
By working with TCS’ broker team members, you will be able to better secure your investments as we always aim to price-protect our investments so that we all win as opposed to outside brokers, who may have one or two listings and most likely won’t have the required relationships with the developer, the on-site property management team and the security service providers. A certain high-level expertise and building/project knowledge is needed to manage this intricate process and TCS has that at all its sites.
Don’t trust your valuable real estate investment portfolio to outside firms/brokers who aren’t in it for the long run and won't protect and serve your needs.
