A few of Pratham's Newcomer Client Reviews

 We're glad we fell into the right hands as soon as we moved to Canada a few years back. We had met with Pratham Kalia to help us find a suitable home to stay in for the time being. Once we were settled, we contacted Pratham as we believed it was time to purchase our first home in Canada. Pratham was able to secure us a home in a top Misissauga neighbourhood with good schools which was our main criteria. Pratham provided us with great insight on the market and was able to provide us with reputable professional contacts. We were very happy with the process and recommend Pratham as a real estate professional.

It was a great pleasure working with Pratham Kalia. We had just arrived to Canada and we were on a time crunch to find a suitable property so that the children could start their schooling at the earliest. Pratham helped us learn about specific neighbourhoods with top school districts and also showed us various properties within our budget. We would highly recommend Pratham to any newcomer looking to buy or rent in Mississauga.
