Manu made the buying process quick and easy. He provided a lot of thoughtful advice and was always quick to respond. Manu never batted an eye to meet at a number of listings and provided honest advice, even if not to his benefit.

We had a chance to work with Emanuel twice and on both sides of the real estate business, as a buyer and a seller. What I can say is that my wife and I couldn't be happier with his work! His high level of professionalism and involvement are astonishing, not to mention his integrity and full support in every aspect and steps of the process. Emanuel isn't a simple agent, he cares... he cares about his clients and takes care of every detail as if it is for himself. There's never a single phone call missed or not answered, nor a message that he doesn't answer right away, and this is crucial on this type of business. We're more than happy to recommend you Emanuel in a higher level, thank you for being with us and we'll see you again on the next deal!

I absolutely loved working with Emanuel. Emanuel helped my fiancé and I sell our property and purchase another one. Even though it is a very stressful experience, Emanuel was there for us every step of the way. Very professional, responsive and knowledgeable. Our property sold for more than what we asked for and we purchased a house of our dream. Would most definitely recommend working with Emanuel and his team.

Emanuel arrived in our history and is here to stay. As a broker, he presented us with apartment options that matched our needs and were able to identify an ideal opportunity. As person, always very kind, friendly and with quick responses, he was certainly one of the best contacts we made in Canada, even from Brazil. I highly recommend him as Realtor, mainly for a Newcomer like myself. More than a broker, you will gain support, a friend.

Emanuel was recommended to us by a colleague who just recently sold their house. It was an excellent decision and here we are SOLD in no time. We only can talk about him highly in every angles of his approach. He is professional but also fun to work with, a hard worker, always available, open and transparent. We first bought a house with his guidance in Stratford and then sold in Kitchener within 3 days way over the asking price. We absolutely loved his negotiation skills, his honesty and fairness. Here is to you Emanuel! The Best Realtor!

Ildiko & George

Emanuel was great from the start, very responsive, courteous and explained in details his method and approach. I felt very safe listing my house with him, and could not expect a better outcome. He promoted our place in all social medias, took great pictures and made an awesome video that really showcase our property with fidelity! Definitely recommended....Several friends already used his services and not a single one had a less than great experience

We last minute decided to sell our house and buy elsewhere and Emanuel made the whole process so much easier on us! He provided sound advise, guidance and reassurance when I was feeling very unsure/overwhelmed, was realistic and didn’t make false promises. He was always a message or phone call away, literally ANY time we had questions I never had to wait long to hear back, and made sure that we understood and were happy with his answers, never brushing us off. He sold our home in 6 days for $148,100 over asking. He is now working patiently with my grandparents to sell their home! I highly recommend Emanuel for all your real estate needs!

Emanuel is professional and he helped my parents thru the process of selling their condo quickly and effortly every step of the way. My parents wanted a quick sale and Emanuel did just that. Always communicating with us and letting us know where we are in the process and what the next steps are, his guidence was very appreciated and valued by us. My entire family uses Emanuel as their preferred agent, we recommend him to everyone that asks.

Working with Emanuel was an absolute pleasure. He went above and beyond expectations and made buying a house such a breeze. I was a first time home buyer so I had no idea what I needed to do. He explained everything in a way that was easy to understand from making the offer, to working with a mortgage broker, getting approved and closing the deal. He even helped me get approved by referring me to a good mortgage broker who got me approved with no issue. Emanuel was extremely helpful, open, transparent, and reliable through the whole process, he really cared about me and understood my needs from the very beginning. He was always there whenever I had a question. I very highly recommend Emanuel to whoever looking to buy a house. I promise that you will not regret it. In fact you will be a very happy home owner just like me. I want to thank Emanuel for all his help. God bless you brother.

Hedayat Ademi

If you are planing to sell your house or purchase one I highly recommend @emanuelcatana He is absolutely a professional and did such an amazing job. So what happened was, we went to see a beautiful house in Stratford and I just looked at my realtor and said I really wanted that house and asked him to do his best to get it. Later we found out that there were around 15 offers on that house. At that time I thought we didn’t have much chance because lots of people were interested in that property but Emanuel did his magic and of course made it happen. Now I am a happy home owner . I just want to thank him so much. I will definitely work with him again in future should I have any real estate needs.

Stratford - July 2021

Emanuel was referred to us by friends who just recently sold properties. 


It is not often that you meet someone who is such a dedicated professional. Emanuel sold our investment property within a week over asking price. 


Although it is currently a seller’s market, as a realtor, Emanuel had a couple challenges with property location and a sudden COVID requirement for occupants to quarantine just as the property hit the market - thankfully test results came back negative and viewings resumed with just a minor delay.  He handled the situations with grace, kindness and professionalism finding the perfect buyer to suit the home and its location. 


He has walked us through every step of the process answering questions quickly and providing guidance skillfully.


We happily recommend him without hesitation.

Kitchener - April 2021

Russell & Jacqueline Montgomery

We felt 110% confident partnering with Emanuel based on family recommendations.

We recently sold 4 rental homes with Emanuel and while this can be a very stressful process for tenants and us as the seller, we felt very confident partnering with him. He was candid, provided great feedback, helped explain clearly all details and managed the actual sale negotiation brilliantly. In addition, he was extremely responsive to every one of our questions, no matter how small. All our homes sold over asking, well beyond our expectations, in a very short period of time. Going forward we are certain Emanuel is the right partner to also help our friends and family navigate this process, we will continue to recommend him. It’s his personality and attention to detail that made it stress free for us!

Waterloo - March 2021

Annie & Will

From start to finish Emanuel was very professional and always kept us updated with what was happening. He knew the market and how much we could expect for our home and rental properties. Even though he had a tight timeline to work with he didn’t hesitate to spend extra time with us to make sure we were happy. We would not hesitate to work with Emanuel again. We have already referred him to other friends and they are happy with his service as well.

Emanuel did an exceptional job helping us! He went above and beyond his duty. I felt safe with his advise, and am truly grateful for his help in our first investment property. I would recommend his team to anyone. He has proven his hard work and determination. Great realtor!

Kitchener - January 2021

Samuel  & Tabita Toma

Sold my house earlier this year and everything went perfect. Emanuel was up front with what to expect and set a timeline which was very easy to follow. He was readily available throughout the process and even went above and beyond when staging our place. Someone reading this might think that the 1% commission is too good to be true but he provided us top quality service and far exceeded our expectations. Included was a virtual tour, professional photography, video presentation and lots of publicity to get people to see our place.

All of that was great but at the end of the day the sale price is what determines how happy a customer is. We got $70,000.00 over asking and were about $55,000.00 more than some of our neighbours who had essentially the same house.

Thank you Emanuel for your professional service. We know who we'll be using next time.

Kitchener - November 2020

George & Daniela Danciu

My house sold in a few days after it hit the market and it sold very well. I was very surprised that it sold so fast, so I want to share with you my experience and bring my good luck to everyone. I hope that no one will have to encounter the same problem I had with the first agent. My experience can help everyone. 


My house was listed for the first time on October 28th, the price was $639,000. Around 10 people came to see the house during the whole week. The highest offer they brought me was $640,000 but I wanted to sell my home for around $680,000 so I asked if I could try it for another week. Their response was "If you don’t listen to my advice and analysis then I will not work with you anymore.” They also mentioned that the price I wanted was completely impossible to reach in the current market. After not coming to terms with them they were quick to send me the cancellation form. I was shocked with their attitude and I felt attacked.  They pretty much said that because I don’t want to accept the offer they won’t help me sell my home anymore. After thinking about it, I replied "I think you have misunderstood me but this year there were many townhomes that sold for more than $650,000, I also think it is not impossible to sell for $670,000 or more.” The reality is if you can’t sell it right away you should still try to achieve your goal. 


More over after feeling depressed for a couple days, the weather became colder and the flowers in the garden were gone. I quickly contacted another real estate agent who came out to see my property the night of November 11th 2020. Emanuel Catana was very satisfied after he came to see my house. He sorted out the paperwork, added some small accessories and rearranged the furniture. I was very pleased when he promised to help me sell my home at what my heart desires. With such short notice he immediately contacted his dedicated camera man to come and take the pictures the next morning + shoot a video of my home, they worked for a total of three hours. After receiving the photos that night he quickly had my property back on the market within 3 days. He also launched the video online a day later. The quality of the photos and video were amazing! His whole work process was very professional and serious. The price suggestion was $599,000 and 3 days there were more than 40 showings. The weather on Saturday was okay while on Sunday it was rainy and stormy. On Monday & Tuesday it was snowy but it didn’t stop the showing requests. 


It was now Monday night and we received an offer, Emanuel Catana suggested that based on this offer we should look at offers earlier. We decided to look at offers on Tuesday night instead of Wednesday night. Due to this wise decision there were 6 offers on Tuesday and the highest offer was $685,000 firm, the second highest offer was $675,000. We ended up accepting an offer on Tuesday night. This impossible task wasn’t so impossible any more. It was a very beautiful victory. 


My intention of writing this today is to make my friends aware of this problem and if you ever decide to sell your home be careful. We don’t sell our houses often and we have little experience therefore be aware. We put a lot of our time and money in our homes therefore we deserve to get top dollar for them. We will encounter many difficulties so when we finally go to the market, we deserve to get a very good price. A correct market assessment will not cause you any losses! Good luck to you all and thank you Emanuel Catana!

Waterloo - July 2020


EMANUEL CATANA is my top recommendation for all your real estate enquires. He has indeed helped myself and my family to sell our house in Kitchener. From the very first moment of our collaboration, his professionalism has set the tone of our successful story. I strongly recommend him to those who are looking for a friendly, hard-working and sincere real estate agent. Moreover, he has gone the extra mile to find us a temporary rent just in time for our closing date. His commissions are really worth his effort and truly reflective of the value he can bring to the table.

Daniel & Ana-Maria

Thank you very much for such a great service! Emanuel was always there for the hardest or the silliest questions related to a house sale process. It is never easy to list your property, usually you find it overwhelming and it is but Emanuel stood up with us from day one to the actual moving date, always providing the best customer service. His presence in social media is strong and confident, when we saw our house listed, after beautiful and professional pictures taken, we were blown away, the house looked more stunning, bright and inviting to potential buyers. We would definitely recomend him to anyone.

Simon & Maria Oncea

Working with Emanuel was crucial for us to find our dream house. His attentiveness and focus on our goals alongside his professionalism made what could have been a painful process into a smooth, easy and even fun venture! Since we found the perfect house he was a warrior fighting to get the best deal for us and finally closing the negotiation. In all phases of the process, he was not only involved but also committed and available, answering our questions timely, guiding us, and helping us make the right decisions. Even after the sale, when we were already settled he kept in touch and frequently wanted to know if everything was fine with us and with the house, always concerned to know whether the house was delivered according to the contract specifications or if there was any discrepancy that required further measures. We definitely recommend Emanuel! Thank you for all your hardworking and support Emanuel.

Kitchener - May 2019

Esdras & Caroline

I used Emanuel as my real estate agent when I purchased my new home here in Canada. The property was located in Baden and I was very pleased with his services, always on time and he really knows what he is doing. Moving from England to Canada was a hard experience for us but Emanuel made it feel a lot easier with his skills. I would recommend Emanuel to all my friends and family. Job well done Emanuel!

Florin Bodnaras

Buying our first home was really challenging especially in today’s market but Emanuel made it so much easier and helped us through every single detail right from the beginning until we became home owners. Me and my husband noticed how knowledgeable Emanuel is, he has home construction experience which is a great bonus, he had patience with us keeping us updated with new listings as soon as they would hit the market and also showing us numerous listings until we found the one that was perfect for us. We can’t be more happier for buying our first home with Emanuel. 

Thank you kindly for making our dream come true.

Kitchener - February 2018

Ioan & Debora Mate

I would definitely recommend Emanuel Catana to any of my friends and family. This was not our first time selling a home but it was the first time we really felt the agent knew how to do his business. He provided very helpful information and explained his process in a way that definitely showed his expertise in real estate. He is super responsive as if you are his only client! Friendly, patient and very professional. If you are looking to buy or sell don’t hesitate to call Emanuel Catana. Thanks for helping us sell our house Emanuel!

A Happy Client

Emanuel helped my husband and I navigate the market as first time home buyers. In a time when the real estate market was 'hot', we knew we had to act fast to secure our first home. Emanuel was always ready and available to research a home we were interested in. He went out of his way to secure a showing as soon as possible, sometimes even the day we found the listing. He is patient, knowledgeable, capable, and hardworking. Through his outstanding work ethic, we were able to find the home we would start our life in. We highly recommend Emanuel, he really does go above and beyond for his clients. When the time comes to move on to another home, we will always choose Emanuel Catana as our agent.

Kitchener - September 2017

Hi Emanuel,




Just wanted to say thank you for all your help and a job well done in dealing with my parents and successfully getting a great result. With your help and professionalism we had no worries throughout the process. We appreciate that you were able to achieve the results we wanted so quickly. Given that one of my parents are very ill you took that burden off of us to worry about selling their home and we were able to focus on the more important things.




My parents enjoyed working with you.




Thank you again for a job well done.

Kitchener - May 2017

Julia Ziegler

We greatly appreciate Emanuel Catana's work ethics, his understanding, his high level of communication, and his efforts at getting us the best price possible while selling our property for $20,000 over asking. He did not only over achieve on our asking price but he saved us a lot on commission too! Emanuel also made purchasing a home very easy,  he kept us up to date with all the latest listings and would book appointments when convenient for us. So with completion of our dealings we definitely would use Emanuel again and would highly recommend his team to anyone interested in buying, selling or in needs of management for an investment.

Kitchener - January 2017

Mike Santos & Sara Mammoliti

Emanuel was referred to us as persuasive, ambitious, honest and easy going young real estate agent who will make as much effort as needed to get his clients exactly what they are looking for.  


He was available for free consultation in a couple hours after we gave him a call, listened carefully for our requirements and possibilities. 

Emanuel was willing to look for properties not only in Kitchener/Waterloo area, but a bit further as well such as Woodstock where we ended buying the property.

He was keeping us updated every day, getting back to us very fast any time we had questions or concerns.


Finally, Emanuel helped us find not only the house we dreamed of, he helped us find our home.

Woodstock- October 2016

Milana & Stefan

The approach Emanuel Catana took to selling our home was exceptionally superb! He had barely listed the property and we already had a bunch of showings.. Well guess what? Our property sold in less than 24 hrs over asking price! Emanuel will make sure your needs are 100% satisfied. We ended up leasing a property through him and will be buying with him in the near future.

Kitchener - October 2016

Daniel & Claudia

Emanuel Catana was referred to me so I didn't hesitate to give him a call. He always made sure to get back to me within the hour and always answered any questions I had. Emanuel Catana sold my property quickly and I would defiantly use him in the future

Guelph - October 2016

Maxim Skavych

We used Emanuel Catana to sell & buy our home in the fall of 2015 and he was exceptional! 


We spoke with Emanuel and met him right here in our home. He spent hours answering our questions. He made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps like providing comparables, having professional photographs taken, and a lot more. Not only did he make sure to help us get top dollar for our property but he helped us buy a superb home. He took us through 10s of properties until we found the right one, he made the process easy to handle. Emanuel has a great amount of knowledge in the real estate career and in the construction field. Defiantly worth the time and investment.
