Read about one of our Community Supporters - the Wright Group, and how the 2 sisters formed a business that not only supports their clients in finding their best home but also gives back to our community, including our Main Street initiatives. Our community supporters help us achieve many of the fun engagements we love to bring to our neighbourhood...

“We are happy to support Queen East Eats, these amazing shops and restaurants are a big part of what makes Leslieville and Riverside a charming and diverse place to live and we want to see them thrive.  The Wright Sisters Group is a local family run business, we appreciate how challenging it must have been for shops and restaurants to adapt their businesses during COVID-19 or to close temporarily.  Come out and enjoy a great meal on a Queen East Eats patio and let’s support our local businesses!”

What’s #QueenEastEats?

It’s a series of giveaways, colourful displays, public art, tours, business features, and more to welcome everyone to the Queen Street East al fresco dining experience this summer and fall. Stay tuned as we bring you something new every week! Learn more at our Links in Bio & check out our Patio Map to plan your experience Queen East Eats in #RiversideTO & #Leslieville

THE WRIGHT START – Having both worked in almost every aspect of the real estate business starting at a very young age, Lindsay & Melanie Wright not only have a keen insight but a unique perspective and understanding of what it means to buy or sell a home. Combining their resources in 1999 to create The Wright Sisters Group. Their real estate experience and knowledge collectively spans over 40 years. Armed with a business degree, Melanie has embraced the opportunity to develop and create systems within two brands, and a new brokerage. In an industry where customer service is paramount, the Wright Sisters recognized a unique opportunity to grow and to merge with their biggest competitors and become partners in both brands. The brokerage consists of two teams with full-time hand picked professional realtors committed to offering the highest level of service.

Melanie is highly skilled and very energetic. She brings a wealth of knowledge and a foundation of success to both the DeClute and Wright Sisters brands. 

Melanie and Lindsay Wright are also committed to giving back to the communities they serve. Since 1999 they have donated a portion of each sale to the “Children’s Miracle Network” which supports various organizations including Toronto Sick Kids Hospital. They’ve raised money for the Toronto East General’s “Buy a brick, build a future” campaign and participate in the “Gifts of Hope” charity with Plan Canada by offering to give a gift that makes a difference (their clients participate in picking the Gift of Hope). Then there is the cause that is closest to their hearts and one that is recognizable on every Wright Sisters For Sale Sign, the “Sold On A Cure” Program. “We are proud to be a part of the fight against breast cancer… a future without breast cancer.”

"I remember when I first started in real estate I wanted to be everything to everyone. I love working with people and helping them buy and sell homes; I love to negotiate and build relationships. However, there are a myriad of things involved in the process and when I started on my own I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off. I was unable to focus on the parts of the business I loved and excelled in, because I had to do other jobs to ensure that the listing was taken care of. This led to dropping the ball in client care, but I know it could have led to other major areas. This was the single and most important reason I created a team starting with my partnership with my sister and our dad. I knew there must be a better system and we’ve never looked back. Our extremely satisfied clients thank us and continue to refer their family, friends and colleagues."
