Joanne Basta

Executive Administrative Assistant

E: info@thehomesellingteam.ca

Let me introduce you to Joanne (wife first, working partner second).  

It’s been said that “family makes a house a home.” Perhaps that explains why as a married couple we have found both love and success working together in real estate. Married for over 27 years, we know the true meaning of a “working relationship” which has brought us even closer together.

Joanne loves the hunt for the home, bargain shopping and helping people. Born and raised in Oakville, Joanne has been buying and selling homes with me since the very start of our marriage and understands and has lived through some of the challenges that can come with any transaction. That is why there is no one else I would trust to be my assistant. Joanne has over 23 years’ experience as a professional Executive Assistant and like me, she is friendly, has a strong knowledge base and a solid understanding of what clients want – trustworthiness and reliability. We have accomplished this with a reputation of great work, honesty, and integrity, the cornerstone of our repeat and referral business.

“We truly love being together. For us, working together is just an extension of being together and I wouldn’t want it any differently.”

Mountainview Mortgage - The Mortgage Centre  

Some people that dream of helping others don’t just stop at getting involved – they create their own opportunities to use their skills and help people succeed. As the Principal Broker and co-founder of Mountainview Mortgage, Anthony Spadafora is an entrepreneur that did exactly that.

Prior to opening the brokerage (alongside Carolyn Callero), Anthony began with a strong background in business and finance. He obtained various educational accreditations, including a Business Administration diploma from Sheridan College, Mortgage Agent certification at Sheridan College, and earned the Mortgage Broker title at Seneca College. Since 2004 he has been honing his skills and broadening his expertise in the industry.  During this time, he has been named in the CMP Top 75 Brokers in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2018 (making him one of the leading Brokers in the country).

While he’s always happy to work with any client if it helps them achieve their home ownership dreams, he does specialize in working on some of the more challenging cases. This includes first time home buyers, and two categories of individuals that often require creativity and expertise to find financing for – the self-employed, and new to Canada. He has the perseverance and ability to explore every option to help people reach their goals, and isn’t shy about taking on a challenge.
