FAMILY LAW MATTER
"I used the services of RECG for a real estate valuation of a commercial property for Family Law equalization.

As a result, I know my lawyer has confidence in proceeding with Demitry's expert report and I am grateful to have used the services of a professional that I can rely upon. I highly recommend Demitry of RECG for anyone requiring a real estate valuation expert. Zahra K." October 2021.
"I had the pleasure of working with Demitry on a transaction for a high profile not for profit customer. I found Demitry to be very responsive and knowledgeable but what I value most is that he took the time to go over with me, the scope of work and clarified if it would be applicable for this transaction and acceptable to the Bank. The clear communication allowed us to expedite the request and save the customer time and money. I would highly recommend using Demitry and RECG for any real estate transaction. David C., Senior Client Relationship Manager, Scotiabank" April 2021.
FAMILY LAW MATTER
“Demitry Omrin of RECG completed a real estate appraisal as part of my Family Law case. It went to trial and Demitry appeared as my expert in Court. It was apparent that Demitry was prepared for cross-examination. His responses to the opposing lawyer’s aggressive cross-examination demonstrated a thorough preparation and a good understanding of valuation. The opposing lawyer attempted to complicate the facts but Demitry’s responses countered this well. His explanations of relatively complicated concepts came across as readily understandable and above those of the appraisers that were opposing him. As a litigant I know that my evidence at trial is what matters most. Having an expert with Demitry’s qualifications was very helpful to my case’s outcome. I recommend Demitry to anyone involved in litigation where real estate value is being sought. Carolyn H." February 2021.
“I recently hired RECG to carry out a valuation of a unique commercial property. Their process from client intake to report completion was impressive. The appraisal report was concisely written with relevant details and key risk issues addressed. It is apparent that Demitry Omrin has an in-depth understanding of real estate and in particular understood the subtle issues of the unusual property in question. Our risk team was pleased with the report’s thoroughness and attention to detail that addressed the risk assessment. In addition, my borrower was very happy with the level of service received by Demitry and his firm. I highly recommend Demitry Omrin and his team for commercial valuations, and would not hesitate to work with RECG again in the future. Alex R., CIBC - Manager, Commercial Banking.”
"I have used the services of RECG headed up by Demitry Omrin. As a commercial account manager, I rely upon outsourcing to those I can trust that will provide the level of service our bank clients expect. Recently, I had placed an appraisal request of an investment grade office building in North Toronto with RECG. The property had some nuances that needed to be addressed. The appraisal report was completed in a timely manner and was prepared in a user friendly format. The analysis was logically revealed and conveyed not only valuation issues but also addressed areas of relevance to a lender. It is of great benefit to a client when an expert understands the value of tailoring the report to the client’s needs. I highly recommend RECG for commercial valuations. Darcy L. CIBC Commercial Banking". February 2021
"I am writing this letter on behalf of Demitry Omrin. I met Demitry when he played the role of expert witness in the Trial Advocacy course at Osgoode Hall Law School (hereinafter OHLS) in the fall of 2018. I am one of the senior instructors in this course. I have taught in the course for 30 years. Demitry has played the role of the real estate appraiser before and he did so again in October 2019. He has always given of his time and expertise with great enthusiasm and with an infectious passion for the subject material. He does so as a volunteer; and doesn't get paid for surrendering his free time. This contribution is essential to the success of our Trial Advocacy course and falls within the dictum "pay it forward". Most people don't "get it". Demitry's contributions to OHLS's Trial Advocacy course confirms that he doesn't just "talk the talk", but he "walks the walk". Demitry added a realistic dimension to the examinations in chief and the cross-examinations. He was a fair witness. He strove to make these trial advocacy exercises realistic and meaninful for the third (3rd) year law students. His participation significantly improved the pedagogical experience for these final year law students. Demitry has an impressive curriculum vitae. It highlights the fact that in his career, he as developed both academic and practical knowledge - all of which he brings to his real estate appraisal practice. I recommend Demitry as an expert witness in real estate appraisal. He will do an excellent job for his clients.
Mr. Frank Gomberg, Gomberg Mediation Solutions Inc." February 2020.
“I retained Demitry Omrin to assist with a commercial lease arbitration file. It was in relation to determination of fair market rent of retail space for major Canadian chain tenants. It was a complex file due to the uniqueness of the leased space and contractual language contained in the lease documents. Demitry held his ground admirably in the face of difficult questioning by the opposing lawyer on interpretation of the lease terms and how they impacted market rent. His report and testimony outshone that of the opponent valuators comprised of three senior appraisers from an international real estate firm. I am a highly experienced real estate investor with decades of experience in commercial real estate development and can appreciate the degree of knowledge shown by Demitry particularly during Arbitration in how well he responded to a difficult cross-examination. I feel fortunate to have had Demitry as my expert. Al Pace, CS Capital." - November 2019.
