2020 Stouffville Honouree
Dynamic duo, Sonya Torres and Dolores Trentadue, are founders of Trentadue Torres Group Re/Max All-Stars Realty Ltd in Stouffville. They earned the coveted Real Estate Professionals’ Top 50 Elite Women in Real Estate accolade, representing all of Canada. Locally, both Sonya and Dolores were honoured as part of the Top 10 Visionary Women in Stouffville, acknowledged for giving back to their community through their business and charity work. They won the Stouffville Chamber of Commerce Small Business Award, and their twelve-agent team of realtors were voted Number 1 in Stouffville’s Readers’ Choice awards.
Dolores and Sonya believe in leading by example, helping where they can, and teaching others that community is about the folks who live in it and the importance of supporting each other for the greater good. They use the hashtag #wearestouffville because they truly feel that they’re a reflection of this beautiful rural town in York Region.
Dolores’ family has owned properties in Stouffville since the 1980s. Sonya came to Stouffville in 2007; and is currently on the 2019-2020 Board of Directors with The Stouffville Chamber of Commerce. Their days are plenty full running their homes and their business and they wouldn’t have it any other way. They’ve surrounded themselves with an excellent team of associates committed to working together to deliver all their clients exceptional service and results.
They say that their community and charity work, coupled with their significant business success, has been an evolution between them and the rest of their team. Everyone has a huge heart at Trentadue Torres Group, and they continuously sponsor local charities and events including the Family Free Skate, Pumpkin Giveaway, Stouffville Legion, Markham Stouffville Hospital, Motorfest, WSP-Stouffville Reads, Pride in the Park, Movies in the Park, Ribfest, and much more.
Together with their team, they also host their own Marketplaces to support local businesses, a toy drive, and an annual Earth Day clean-up in Stouffville. They lead a Foodbank initiative, picking up and dropping off food donations, and they give a portion of their sales commission from each property sold to the Children’s Miracle Network.
For Sonya and Delores, whatever the task at hand, they say that it’s not a job, it’s simply a choice to do better. This also means doing better within their community and showing their children and the next generation what true life experience is all about, emphasizing that there is much more to a career than the job itself. Again, it’s about the people. Not only is it a way to unite the community, it is a way to unite families and help each other to grow and move in a direction that is positive and encouraging.
