About Us

Ruslana Wrzesnewskyj, Sales Representative

DSC_6713_C_retouch_v2Dedication and commitment goes into everything Ruslana Wrzesnewskyj does: from her 30 years of 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 orphan and institutionalized children 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 well-known Toronto builders 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.

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 is born and raised in West End Toronto. She grew up watching the Real Estate world in with fascination – she remembers helping her mother set up open houses when she was younger! As she became older, she became interested in politics, interior design, traveling, and volunteering. Petra spent a few years away from Toronto: traveling Europe, interning with a charitable foundation in Ukraine, and eventually attending the University of Guelph. She completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science with Honours and moved back to Toronto. After completing her degree, 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 administrative assistant, she began her Realtor Courses and the rest is history – Petra now has more than 8 years of experience in the Toronto Real Estate Market.

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

Petra and Ruslana have now been working together for more than eight years – an unbeatable combination of youthful energy and experience!


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!

Ruslana listed & sold our home within one week – no muss, no fuss! Thank you so much for your hard work on this!

L & K, Mississauga

The sale of our mother’s home was accomplished within an amazing 48 hours after the listing appeared on the internet, avoiding two open house days for the public. We especially appreciated the expertise and hands-on support of the W team as they guided us though the process of preparing the house for sale. The care they took with the details of the staging was impressive.
Best of all, the house sold at $100K over the listing price! We have complete confidence in the W team’s ability to get the job done.

I found Ms Ruslana and Petra Wrzesnewskyj to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, dedicated and courteous. They were always available whenever I had a question or concern regarding the sale of my house. As well, they provided me with excellent contact persons concerning the auction of my furniture, framed pictures, etc., the refinishing of my furniture and the cleaning of floor rugs. After a beautiful staging, Ruslana and Petra sold my house for a great price in just 4 days. I highly recommend these ladies. They made the whole process of selling my house very easy.

The team of Ms Ruslana and PetraWrzesnewskyj really know the real estate market In Toronto. They showed me the type of condominiums, and in the locations I was interested in. After a couple of weeks they found me my perfect home for a very reasonable price. Also, with their courteous assistance I contacted the sellers of the condominium and was able to purchase beautiful furniture on site for a great price. I have no hesitation recommending Ruslana and Petra for your real estate needs.

Dear Ruslana and Petra!

Thank you very much for your assistance in the successful sale of our family home. Your depth of experience, knowledge of our neighbourhood, professionalism and expertise in staging, and marketing helped us immensely during this significant transition to downsizing.

We highly recommend you and still remember our first meeting with some nostalgia, as it was a pleasure purchasing the home with you 28 years ago, and now selling it with you recently.

With sincere thanks and appreciation.

G & E, The Kingsway
