Broker, Chestnut park real estate limited, brokerage
Justine Deluce is proven, entrepreneurial, generous, focused and knows the value of hard work.
For twelve years she was part of the leadership team at Chestnut Park, serving as Chief Operating Officer and Broker of Record for the last three. In the spring of 2015 she decided to return to selling real estate, which is not an odd thing for someone who’s managed a company for twelve years and wants to renew her connection to what drew her to the business in the first place: helping people realize their real estate goals in a way that profits them and makes them feel great about the process.
Justine loves people and loves solving problems. In fact, nothing makes her happier than fitting the pieces together to match someone’s need to buy with someone else’s need to sell – and working to get her clients to the right place quickly.
She is not only ardent about bringing together buyers and sellers, she’s passionate about her city and the people in it. She’s volunteered her time and raised money for many organizations and causes, including Covenant House, the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, the Canadian Opera Company, the Royal Ontario Museum, French for the Future (she’s bilingual) and the Fraser Institute.
Justine went to Havergal College in Toronto and the University of Western Ontario in London, then earned her MBA at the University of Edinburgh.
She completed her real estate license in 1995 and has been in the business ever since.
Except, that is, for two years when she was policy advisor to the Ontario Minister of Health and Long-Term Care and to the Minister of Citizenship, Culture and Recreation. That commitment to public service was renewed when she ran for the Ontario PCs in St. Paul’s in the 2014 Provincial election, boosting the party’s vote by 25%.
But it’s at Chestnut Park where she’s built both her reputation as a highly effective negotiator and problem-solver and helped build the leading luxury real estate firm in every market where it operates, with over $2 billion a year total dollar volume of real estate sold.
After returning from Edinburgh and joining the leadership team in 2003, Justine led many of the firm’s most successful initiatives — from launching its offices in Collingwood; to partnering with Christie’s International Real Estate in order to create a global marketing platform for the brand and its 260 agents; to building the Chestnut Park name into one of the most respected luxury real estate brands in North America.
There’s an old saying that the best predictor of future behaviour is past behaviour.
So if you’re looking not just for a good agent, but for a great agent, think of Justine’s track record and how she can put it to work for you.

The Toronto and area residential resale market picked up where 2016 ended. In fact it accelerated the pace of sales we witnessed in December. This is unusual behavior for the market in January, usually a slow month, as buyers and sellers kick out the holiday season cobwebs. But these are unusual times, very unusual times.
