About Us

Ruslana Wrzesnewskyj, Sales Representative

DSC_6713_C_retouch_v2Dedication and commitment goes into everything Ruslana Wrzesnewskyj does: from her 25-year-old involvement in the real estate industry to her considerable charitable activity. She is a member of the Remax Hall of Fame, Platinum Club and the 100% Club. She has been honoured both in Canada and in Ukraine for her immense contributions to improving the quality of life of orphans in Ukraine.

Ruslana understands all of the dynamics involved in a real estate transaction, and truly enjoys them. She regularly calls her purchasers and vendors to keep them abreast of what is happening in the real estate market so that they know the market as well as she does. Ruslana’s skilled and experienced guidance through this extremely important time in a person’s life paired with the genuine interest she has in her client’s happiness has resulted in more than a few friendships along the way.

Her always-present interest in real estate came to fruition after she had worked on private real estate deals with family members. In fact, her family business experience has given her a solid background for real estate and taught her excellent decision-making skills. One of the founders of Rusand Home Renovations, Ruslana’s thorough knowledge of renovations allows her to envision the potential of any home, and quickly call in contractors for estimates. The staging of homes is part of Ruslana’s real estate marketing, which she completes as part of her commission fee.

Ruslana’s many years of experience have led her to personally know and work closely with a wide range of local professionals: from lawyers, to mortgage brokers, to design specialists, – all in the name of customer satisfaction. Ruslana will not disappoint!

Petra Wrzesnewskyj-Cottrell, Sales Representative

Petra Wrzensewskyj-PotichnyjPetra grew up watching the Real Estate world in West Toronto with fascination – she remembers helping her mother set up open houses when she was younger and the binders full of Polaroids her mother would take to clients homes. As she became older, her interests diversified – she became interested in politics, interior decorating, traveling, and volunteering with charitable organizations. She spent a few years away from Toronto: traveling Europe, interning at a foundation which was building a children’s oncological hospital in Ukraine, and eventually deciding to attend the University of Guelph. She completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science with Honours and moved back to Toronto. She held a few jobs, which she did not find challenging enough, until one day her mother suggested she come work as her assistant and see if she still liked Real Estate. The fascination returned – after a year of working as an assistant, she began her Realtor Courses and the rest is history!

Petra and Ruslana have now been working together for almost five years – an unbeatable combination of youthful energy and experience!

In her spare time, Petra is still actively volunteering with a charity aimed at improving the quality of life of orphans in Ukraine, spending time with her family and exploring the World.


I would highly recommend Petra and Ruslana. I have worked with them in two transactions, one in buying a house and one in selling a house and have been extremely pleased. This team goes above and beyond to make sure you find the right house and that you are the winning bid . In selling, they were extremely helpful in making sure the house was staged and on the market in time. This team has a tremendous amount of experience in the housing market and as a client I have first-hand benefitted.

The Ruslana / Petra team provided excellent service and our house sold in a week for more than $100k over the asking price. They are pleasant, courteous and energetic, and are very knowledgeable of the Bloor West market. In addition, their support and advice regarding staging of the house was extremely valuable. They are a team to be recommended!!

K & M, Bloor West Village

Every other agent we interviewed gave us a very low, sell quick “as-is” sale price for our house. Only Ruslana and Petra saw the potential in our home; they saw past the clutter and the banged up baseboards, and worked ALONGSIDE a team of their trusted professionals to touch up and stage our house. It was a total transformation – we were very pleased to bring back our homes former glory! Of course, selling WAY over asking was also a bonus!
