About Me

Rafia Tanveer

Sales Representative

Hi everyone! My name is Rafia Tanveer and I am a licensed Real Estate agent at McCarthy Realty. I have a background in Science and got my Bachelor’s with a minor in Biology from Wilfrid Laurier University. In 2022,I had decided to make the transition from working at a local pharmacy to being a full time real estate agent and it was the best decision I have ever made!

As someone who is fairly new to the real estate industry, I have learned that the sky’s the limit! Whether you are working on helping someone find their dream home or helping them find investment properties, no two days are exactly the same. You never know what to expect and how your day may go. I have loved every minute of this career and guiding clients through transactions (which are rarely simple), makes this career very exciting and extremely rewarding. 

Being a part of the local community after having resided here for 9 years has given me a new perspective and joy in working with all kinds of people. While most of my experience comes from working with buyers and from working on rental properties, I am excited to see what is to come as I grow in my career. I can’t wait to meet YOU and show you how the McCarthy Realty Team is Improving Lives EVERYDAY!

Rafia’s commitment to serving her clients shines through her work, every single day. Whether you’re starting your home journey, wanting to sell, or just exploring the market, Rafia is here to guide, listen, and advocate for you.

What My Clients Say?



She always had time for me. She’s always checking in on me. When I went to look at the house, I asked her about another one. She made an appointment. We wanna look at that. She helped me with all the paperwork.

She’s always been there for and always makes sure I understand everything through the paperwork in the process of looking into houses and getting a house

She was great and a pleasure to work with!

Thanks so much Rafia

A huge thank you to our realtor @rafia.realtor for helping us find our rental home in Shelburne. It is honestly almost perfect and I hope to be able to purchase it once we rebuild. The rental market is #insane and the process was #stressful. Rafia walked us through and spent part of Mother’s day securing our rental agreement. I am so grateful and highly recommend her to anyone buying, selling or renting

I can’t say enough good things about Rafia! She has been so patient, informative and easy to confide in through our journey in finding the perfect home. There is a lot we dont know about real estate and Rafia was able to explain anything we had any questions about with ease. 1000% if we ever find ourselves looking for another home we’d contact Rafia in a heartbeat!

Rafia Tanveer,
I just wanted to shower you with praises.
We could not have done this without you.
Thanks for your swift action and professionalism when dealing with me and my family.
You are number 1 in our books and will recommend your realtor services to our friends and family members!
We love the new home you found us- fits our family of 6 perfectly and occasionally mother when she comes to visit.

We can’t say enough about working with Rafia! She was patient and worked with us to help find the perfect home for our family. Her knowledge and diligence made the entire process so incredibly quick, easy and enjoyable. When we need an agent in the future and if anyone ever asks for a recommendation we will absolutely work with and suggest Rafia! Thank you!!!!

Rafia was so diligent and patient, as we tried to find the right place in the location I wanted.  We had several viewings but none of the rentals was quite right.
Rafia did not give up, and continued to find places that were closer to appropriate… I never considered getting another Real Estate Agent.
I would not hesitate to recommend Rafia to anyone searching for a home to rent or buy. Her personality is a huge asset, and she was very gracious when I told her I had taken another rental.

It was my pleasure to have met you, Rafia. You had on a big smile the whole time we dealt with each other, and that includes looking at many layouts until I decided which one I wanted. You have a lot of patience dealing with new people and you made me feel like I knew you forever. I am very pleased with my apartment and I have you to thank for that. I wish you all the success going forward.

Again, thank you very much for the wonderful experience.

The transition period of selling our mother’s condo and moving her into Edgewood, which could have been stressful, went smoothly thanks to Rafia who helped us every step of the way.  She guided us through the whole process, from filling out documentation , helping us to select our suite and being a liaison between us and the property manager.  We could call Rafia anytime and she was always there for us!

Our mother is now settled into her beautiful new suite and absolutely loves it and is enjoying the wonderful community at Edgewood Suites and all it has to offer.

The property manager Adriana provides ongoing help and support with any issues or concerns.  Adriana has been amazing and is always there if mom needs anything!

Thank you Rafia and Adriana for all you do and making Edgewood Suites a wonderful place to call home.

Working with Rafia has been an absolute pleasure from the very beginning of our communications until getting the keys to our perfect home. Being on a tight deadline and requiring more room for a growing family, we turned to Rafia to find us more space, in a quieter neighbourhood while still remaining within budget. She was communicative, and very quickly responded with ample listings and was very flexible on meeting us to view the properties. From start to finish, we had such a pleasurable experience dealing with Rafia, whether it was last minute questions late at night, or another viewing request, she was always eager and professional in addressing our concerns and always on time to see a listing.

By the end of our search, we were shocked at how quickly Rafia was able to source our perfect home, coordinate paperwork and handle all our inquiries in a professional and timely manner. We were expecting a baby right after move-in day and were surprised to be greeted with a warm welcome gift on the day of move in. We really enjoyed working with her and would highly recommend Raffia to anyone who is looking for a friendly, trustworthy, reliable and professional real estate agent in the area. Her genuine care and passion for what she does shines through in her quick and friendly approach. We couldn’t be happier to have worked with her and have now settled into our perfect first family home. Thank you from all of us Rafia!

“My husband & I recently had the opportunity to work with Rafia Tanveer in finding a suitable leasing solution for our retirement needs. From the first meeting with Rafia, she took took the time, despite some schedule changes on our part to ensure that we were able to view multiple units/options, all the while carefully keeping in mind what would best suit our requirements for both short & long term. Throughout our process, Rafia was extremely patient, professional & an absolute pleasure to work with. We would most certainly recommend Rafia for any real estate needs.”
