Passionate, diverse, and dedicated to delivering exceptional service and care, the Customer Care Team is an essential part of Collecdev-Markee, committed to upholding our mission to build complete communities with uncompromising standards of quality, while nurturing strong relationships with the people who call them home.
Every member of the team brings a diverse set of experiences and skills, resulting in a group of industry leaders with the combined knowledge to handle any situation. From our Customer Care Manager, to each individual Customer Care Representative, the entire team is committed to welcoming homeowners with personalized attention and seamless support. Meet the individuals ready to elevate your experience of everyday life.
Hi, I’m Nadine. As Customer Care Manager, I have the distinct pleasure of leading our team as we deliver extraordinary service to each and every Collecdev-Markee homeowner. When I’m not in the office, you can find me roller skating, baking, playing with my many cats and dogs, and thinking about new ways to make your experience with us even better.
Hello! I’m Dario, the Collecdev-Markee Customer Care Coordinator with a passion for health and fitness (I used to be a personal trainer), cooking, family, and friends. As Nadine’s right-hand man, I consider myself one half of a dynamic duo, here to provide top tier service and support, from PDIs to move-in day and beyond. Whether you have questions, need assistance navigating the move-in process, or just want to say hi, I’m here and ready to help.
At Collecdev-Markee, we believe that collaboration is the key to community. That’s why your experience with us doesn’t end when we hand over your keys. From pre-construction to post-delivery, our team is with you, every step of the way, guiding you through your PDI, interim occupancy, final closing, and much more. As you begin your new life at Nørdic, we’ll be here, assisting you with the inspired, extraordinary service you’ve come to expect from Collecdev-Markee, and freeing you up to enjoy your new home.
Nørdic prepares for Pre-Delivery InspectionsJanuary 22, 2024 READ MORE
It’s 2024, which means a new year, new resolutions, and new milestones at Nørdic, where Pre-Delivery Inspections are set to begin this Spring. To get homeowners ready, we’ve put together this handy post on PDIs, with helpful details on what to expect and how to prepare, ensuring the process will be seamless much like the design of Nørdic itself –focus on what matters, and live a happier, healthier life.
What is a PDI?
The Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) marks a huge milestone in the home ownership process – it’s your first chance to see your finished new home in real life and the final step before move-in day. All new homes enrolled with Tarion – and therefore protected by the Tarion warranty – must undergo a PDI.
Our trusted third-party PDI company, Fortune PDI, will reach out to schedule your appointment, typically 1-2 weeks before your occupancy date. At the appointment, not only will you get to see the upgrades you selected and review the quality of the finished work, but you’ll also learn about your new home and all its operating systems (plumbing, heating, ventilation, electrical, etc.), so that you’ll be familiar with how everything works by the time you move in.
How do I prepare for my PDI?
In preparation for your PDI, there are some helpful documents to review, including the Tarion PDI Checklist and the special feature, the Pre-Delivery Inspection, both of which will help provide an overview of the process.
Who can attend my PDI?
PDIs are conducted in person and onsite. During your appointment it’s important that you’re free to focus on the inspection of your new home, reviewing any maintenance and operational instructions, and noting if anything is missing, damaged or incomplete. For that reason, we strongly recommend that only the purchasers named on the Agreement of Purchase and Sale (APS) should attend.
If you’re unable to attend, you can assign a designate to attend on your behalf. Simply complete the Designate Form and submit it to our Customer Care team prior to your PDI. You can also request that a member of the development team complete the inspection on your behalf. In that case, a copy of the PDI will be sent to you along with a video of your suite inspection. For safety reasons, no minors or pets are allowed on site.
What should I bring to the PDI?
While your Collecdev-Markee Customer Care representative will provide all of the necessary paperwork on the day of the PDI, some people find it helpful to bring a copy of the Agreement of Purchase and Sale and a list of upgrades for reference. Since the site is still under construction, be sure to dress appropriately with close-toed footwear (and no heels for your safety). And if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re always here to help.
What is the result of my PDI?
At the end of your PDI you should come away with five things: a complete list of items that require further attention; an understanding of how to use and maintain the key systems of your home; your warranty certificate indicating your home’s enrolment number and warranty start date; any relevant user manuals and other warranty documents; contact information and next steps.
Committed to quality and community.
The PDI is just one more step in our mission to deliver uncompromising standards of quality and the superior homeowner experience that has become a signature of Collecdev-Markee communities across the city. Our Customer Care Team will be with you every step of the way, bringing to life our collective vision for balanced and complete communities that reflect the way people truly want to live.
For questions about the Nørdic PDI, or about any of our extraordinary communities, contact a member of our customer care team at 416.640.6000 x1.

Shop the Mink Mile for the perfect home holiday giftsDecember 13, 2023 READ MORE

Toronto Life once said, “Bloor-Yorkville is the destination for everything from a luxury handbag and dazzling jewels to a vacation outfit and a gourmet meal with a side of extravagant people-watching.” And, come holiday time, it’s also the perfect spot to check everyone off your gift list, with the city’s best shopping lining the granite-paved streets. We’ve scouted out a route with the neighbourhood’s most delightful designer shops featuring luxurious gifts for the home. After all, winter is the perfect time to cozy up indoors.
With an enviable location on Bloor Street West, Cielo offers the best of the city, right outside your front door. Stroll across to the Mink Mile, one of the world’s most deluxe shopping streets, taking in the spectacular festive lights and Urban Campfire Benches along the way; the captivating fixtures will be lit up in holiday colours all season long, warming the way to luxury retail.
Stop in at Louis Vuitton (150 Bloor St. W.) where, in addition to one of the most recognizable patterns in the world, you’ll find a whole host of gifts for the home including monogrammed wine kits, bookends in the signature flower motif, and a Gaston Doll Santa Claus, named for the grandchild of the original luxury trunk maker.
Head across the street and pop into William Ashley (131 Bloor St. W.), a stunning multi-level space with an exquisite collection of tableware, giftware, and art pieces. From the classic (Waterford crystal ornaments) to the completely unexpected (a cheeky Muse-Bouche scented candle by Jonathan Adler, adorned with lips), the store offers up inspiration at every price point.
Continue on your journey to Hermès (100 Bloor St. W.) for the ultimate indicator of home luxury, the classic Hermès Avalon blanket with its iconic whip stitch edges. Available in myriad colourways, this heavenly blend of wool and cashmere is the perfect way to stay cozy when temperatures drop.
By this point you might need a little nibble to keep you going – enter Eataly (55 Bloor St. W.), the gourmet food emporium that brings a taste of the dolce vita to Bloor Street West. Warm up with a tiramisu latte or a sinfully rich cup of hot cocoa (essentially a shot of liquid chocolate). There are also a selection of restaurants and kiosks for a flatbread, an insalata, or a panino to go!
With your tummy taken care of, head across the street to Canada’s oldest department store, Holt Renfrew (50 Bloor St. W.). The 180,000-square-foot store is a mecca of fashion, but their home department is equally not to be missed. From kitchen to tech, home fragrance to delightful décor, you’ll discover a plethora of beautiful gift ideas. For an added nod to sustainability, shop items from H Project, a curated collection of products from around the world that support local cultures and communities, with minimal impact on the environment.
Just a few steps off of Bloor, you’ll find the charming laneways of Yorkville where the Aesop boutique (94 Cumberland St.) has everything you need to give the gift of scintillating scents. Shop candles and room sprays, incense or the brand’s signature hand washes. One whiff of the citrus, woody, and herbaceous aromatics and you’ll be hooked.
With your olfactory senses still primed, head to Diptyque (101 Yorkville Ave.). The world-renowned perfume house and purveyor of home fragrance (including the iconic black and white-labelled candles) has released a limited edition of holiday scents including Sapin (pine), Délice (delight), and Coton (cotton). Can’t decide? Pick up the Diptyque advent calendar with 25 scented treasures your loved ones can enjoy all month long.
The final stop on our retail adventure? Teatro Verde (55 Avenue Rd.), the celebrated florist-turned-ultimate choice for unique gifts and beautiful home décor. A Yorkville institution for more than a quarter of a century, this colourful retail space is bursting with blooms, books, décor, and more. Come for a bouquet, stay for the one-of-a-kind finds.
Throughout every season, Cielo offers an inspired location in Toronto’s celebrated Arts & Cultural hub. Get out and discover the magic of the holidays.
5 ways to celebrate the holidays at TRETTIDecember 7, 2023 READ MORE

Set out a plate of cookies for Sinterklass and top up your mulled wine, because the holidays are almost here, and at TRETTI, there are myriad ways to celebrate.
In Sweden, celebrations begin on Christmas Eve, or Julafton, with a traditional buffet smörgåsbord and a Christmas gnome who lives in the forest and hands out gifts. In Denmark, children decorate the tree, and each household prepares a traditional cinnamon rice pudding called grod. In Norway, last minute shopping is de rigeur as people rush home for lutefisk (a cod dish) and glogg (mulled wine). At TRETTI, a complete community welcoming a broad range of residents, anything goes. Here are five ways to celebrate this holiday season at the Scandinavian-inspired residence in the heart of Wilson Heights.
Gather Santa’s little helpers in the children’s play area.
Gather up the youngest elves and all of Santa’s little helpers and host an afternoon of holiday fun in the children’s play area. The sun-filled space is the perfect spot to maximize daylight hours, reading Christmas classics in the reading nook, or decorating the indoor tree sculptures. When the sun is out, bundle everyone up and head to the outdoor playscape where the little ones can chase reindeer on the rubbery, kid-friendly, rolling hills.
Break bread with your nearest and dearest in the party room.
The holidays are all about spending time with loved ones, and the party rooms re the perfect spot to host them all. Cuddle up on the couch and kick off a holiday movie marathon with Elf, Home Alone, and It’s a Wonderful Life on repeat on the big screen. Sip eggnog next to the fire. Or sit down for a meal at a dining table that seats up to 8 or 10.
Help friends beat holiday stress in the fitness studio.
So much of the holidays focuses on food and drink, and, while that may be delicious (and we love shortbread as much as the next guy), sometimes it’s fun to mix things up. Consider inviting a group of friends for a stress-busting session in the high-performance fitness studio or a relaxing stretch in the sun-filled yoga room. A savasana is a welcome follow-up to a marathon holiday shopping run.
Let your fur babies in on the fun in the pet-centric amenity space.
As anyone who has a pet will understand, the holidays aren’t just for humans. Give your four-legged family members their own celebration in TRETTI’s pet-centric amenity space where they can play with their furry friends and go full zoomies on the artificial turf.
Celebrate with your colleagues and collaborators in the co-working space.
The holidays wouldn’t be the holidays without some professionally mandated festivities, but freelancers and modern professionals who work from home don’t have to miss out on all the fun. Hop in a private alcove in the co-working space and host an online Zoom or a Teams event. The lightning-fast Wi-Fi will ensure your connection is crystal clear, so no one will miss a second of your Rudolph impression.
Scandinavian-inspired, and designed for the way people really live, TRETTI has the spaces and programming to support today’s modern lifestyles, throughout the holidays and all year long.
