Georgio Kosmidis- Owner
Arthex property Management
As the saying goes, “The party doesn’t start until he walks in the room.” Well, that’s our friend Georgio – he’s quick with a joke and will throw in a short business story before offering his unique insight on daily events. He’ll end it with his trademark infectious laugh that can be heard from across the room at a party.
A third-generation property manager and owner of a firm with an over 40-year pedigree of serving tenants and owners, Georgio still infuses everything he does with the deepest passion. What can we say? He’s Greek. He is a proud father of three great kids and a big time proud grandfather to his grandkid. Georgio loves good business almost as much as he loves good people, and never fails to live up to his word or handshake. That’s how he and Arthex have earned the reputation and respect they enjoy throughout Southern Ontario.
Karl Vanderkuip- Broker
RE/MAX Garden City
“CallKarl” Vanderkuip was never supposed to be in real estate. His passion for history, architecture and adventure had him hopping on a one-way flight to Nicaragua with nothing but a backpack, some granola bars and coconut water. He was “living the dream” until destiny gave him an epic case of mono and he was Fed Ex’ed home. Life’s master plan was to make sure he’d meet his girlfriend (soon-to-be-wife) Pauline. Attending Brock University and finding a summer job in real estate led him to his true calling, and Karl has been selling Niagara’s lifestyle one home at a time ever since.
Ten years and two kids later, he wouldn’t change a thing. The result isn’t just a leading brokerage, but a popular punch line amongst friends, family, and clients all over Niagara ( like.. run out of milk? Call Karl). Karl believes in the philosophy of ‘Giver’s Gain’ and understands that people’s trust is a precious commodity. You’ll be right to Call Karl.
