Sarita Samaroo-Tsaktsiris, SST Law

Toronto, ON

Sarita Samaroo-Tsaktsiris has become one of the most respected real estate lawyers in the GTA, helping countless buyers and sellers navigate the legal minefields hidden in the details of most real estate transactions.

Real estate law is still a male-dominated field, and Samaroo-Tsaktsiris says she’s occasionally mistaken for admin staff, but she does see a demographic shift happening. “There are strong, intelligent women making their voices known,” she says. “Women also have an uncanny ability to close deals by being even-tempered and conscientious of ensuring everything goes smoothly.”
