John Helfrich was already running a small business when he bought his first home. So he understood what it took to provide good customer service. John felt that his Realtor could have done more to support him in his purchase and that feeling stayed with him. So years later when John began his real estate career in 1985, he knew that he would do a better job when it came to communicating the facts about a property to his clients. His approach from the beginning has been to tell the truth and follow through by doing exactly what he says he's going to do. As an entrepreneur-manager, his greatest skill has always been to cut through the noise and chatter to discover what people actually want and help them get it. Over the past 30 years John's helped hundreds of satisfied clients succeed in buying and selling real estate. John takes the same philosophy to his personal life. In 2010 he travelled to Hawaii where he discovered standup paddle boarding. He enjoyed it so much that within 3 days of returning to Toronto he bought his own board. His son enjoyed it so much that he soon bought him one as well. They would be seen paddleboarding off of the Beach and would be approached by others interested in learning. It wasn't long before John's son started a business called 'SupSurf' (www.supsurf.ca) for paddleboarding lessons and rentals that he still operates today. John went on to launch a side business called 'Beach Toyz' (www.beachtoyz.ca) selling paddleboards and other sporting goods right here in the Beaches. It's an exhilarating endeavour that John likes to share with others to make them happy - very much like in his real estate business. His life philosophy is to do well by doing good. His clients appreciate his no nonsense, tell it like it is approach, which he backs up with his skill and experience.
