Join us on April 24 for a talk with Lesli Gaynor on housing co-ownership. Lesli is a real estate agent specializing in co-housing. In 2016, she founded GoCo Solutions, part of the Fridman Team at Forest Hill Real Estate, to help people navigate the process of co-operative real estate and find a home in the Toronto and GTA real estate market. Co-operative real estate – the purchase of an asset between two or more parties – is becoming an attractive option for people who want to own a home, and are willing to share space, resources and community with others.

Lesli believes everyone should have access to a safe and secure home, and that our homes are central to our well-being and the foundation for personal, social, community and economic success. She is a passionate about affordable cities and helping people maintain homes in neighbourhoods they love.

As well as supporting her clients, Lesli hosts events and conferences to educate about co-housing. These have included ‘Co-housing speed dating’ evenings, to match prospective home buyers together. Recently, with technology students from the University of Waterloo, she launched WeOwn.ca, a matching service app that partners people who are interested in becoming a ‘mortgage couple’ or family. She lives in Parkdale with her partner Jules and their housemates.

She has generously offered her time to speak to Karma members about this popular alternative to sole ownership. You are sure to walk away with more information and resources to help you on your way to co-ownership. We hope you can join us!
