CO-OP AGENT Ira Jelinek, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.

The Action: Agent Ira Jelinek combed three North York neighbourhoods to find a condominium for clients looking to cut down their commute to work and loved ones. Assessing a lineup of about 15 potential candidates, this one-bedroom-plus-den unit at the Spectrum was snapped up for $292,000.

What They Got: In the north tower of a two-building complex built by Menkes Developments in 2003, this classic suite features ceramic floors in the kitchen and bathroom, and laminate in the bedroom, den, dining area and living space with sliding balcony doors.

Ensuite laundry facilities and parking complete the package, along with concierge, games and party rooms run. The condo has monthly fees of $433.

The Agent's Take: "It was centrally located," Mr. Jelinek says. "It's in a little pocket by the 401 [highway], so people like it because you can hop right on the 401 and be anywhere very quickly."

Secondary to the convenient location was this unit's size and style. "It was within their price range, it had a den and it was turnkey so this fit the bill," Mr. Jelinek says. "When something comes up, which is few and far between, a one-bedroom plus den unit was very rare compared to everything else."
