TORONTO, May 13, 2015 /CNW/ - How often does a real estate agent waive their commission fee? Just once! Top Toronto Real Estate Sales Representative Andrew Ipekian, of Keller Williams Realty, will be doing just that to raise funds for food rescue charity Second Harvest.
On Sunday, June 7th at Second Harvest's legendary culinary fundraiser Toronto Taste, presented by The Daniels Corporation, the Live Auction will feature a Full-Service Real Estate Package courtesy of Andrew Ipekian.
Andrew is donating his services to sell one lucky winner's home free of charge. This prize package includes real estate fees of 2.5% (or 5% if he acts as both the listing and selling agent), home staging advice, maid service, professional photography and virtual tour, open houses, and marketing in multiple digital advertising channels.

"Second Harvest is one of the best ways to help feed children, adults and seniors experiencing hunger in our city," says Andrew Ipekian, Real Estate Sales Representative, Keller Williams Realty.
"Funds raised at Toronto Taste keep Second Harvest trucks on the road rescuing food and delivering it to over 200 social service agencies every day," says Debra Lawson, Second Harvest's Executive Director, "This event accounts for twenty percent of our fundraising so it's extremely important for us and particularly critical for those in need of nutritious food in our city."
Along with bidding on unique experience prizes in the Live Auction, Toronto Taste guests will enjoy perusing through the Silent Auction, browsing bottles in the Fine Wine Auction, taking a chance on a trip for 4 to Chicago in the raffle draw and of course, tasting delicious offerings from the city's top chefs, restaurants and beverage purveyors.
