The largest transaction was for $23,000,000 on October 7. It is a mansion in Westmount, on the island of Montreal, which was sold by Gestion Silcho Inc. This holding company belonged to the late Léo Strulovitch, or Léo Stroll, father of billionaire businessman Lawrence Stroll and grandfather of F1 driver Lance Stroll. .

Broker Joseph Montanaro, specializing in luxury real estate, was the buyer’s representative.

“This is a unique and exceptional property, which sold very quickly. The sale was made off the market. [sans affichage public]. It was done in a few months,” he said in an interview with The newspaper.

However, the broker has signed a confidentiality agreement and cannot provide details about the residence in question, located in the most exclusive neighborhood in Quebec. However, he confirms that it is the largest transaction in Quebec history, as of December 15.

The sale of the Stroll family home broke the record for the largest transaction, which had been secured earlier this year for another Westmount residence. A business executive bought the mansion for $20.9 million in June.

Matter of time

Joseph Montanaro says the slowdown in the housing market that we see everywhere is being felt in Westmount as well, but less than in other sectors. This year in Westmount, nine homes sold for more than $5 million.

He adds that it is a matter of time before this year’s record is broken again. Prices in Quebec have a long way to go compared to other provinces, where prices are much higher, he said.

“While these sales are important, I recently made even more expensive offers and it didn’t work out compared to the seller’s expectations,” he explains.
