Your real estate expert

Marino Abbandonato

I am an experienced Chartered Real Estate Broker with over 30 years of practice. I speak 3 languages, French, English, and Italian. Over the years, I have gone through several different market conditions and had to adapt to each one of them. As a real estate professional, I act as an adviser and support my clients in all stages of the transaction, whether they are buying or selling their homes.

"I always recommend a building inspection to determine the condition of the property in order to project any immediate and future expenses."

What people say about


"I have used Marino's services for 3 transactions and each time his expertise and strong industry knowledge have enabled me to finalize them at the optimal price. Thank you, Marino! You always look out for my best interest!"


"We started our home hunting journey with Marino in Saint-Lazare, visiting homes almost every 3rd day and moved our way into Blainville where he secured us our perfect first home. He was very professional and was great at negotiating. We can't say thank you enough and would recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home!

Chris & Kristina

"Mr. Abbandonato represents the RE/MAX 'Tranquility' program perfectly. He is dedicated, always available and gives us peace of mind with his knowledge and advice. If we ever return to Quebec, Mr. Abbandonato will be the first person we'll know about buying a property. Thank you once again Marino for the sale of our property.
