Nina Asusa, Broker

Nina's journey in real estate began in the early 1990's where her passion for real-estate quickly grew from an investor and home renovator, to where she is today. In 2006*, Nina launched her full-time real estate career and quickly found herself helping her clients, who many became friends, achieve not just any lifestyle, but the lifestyle they wanted for themselves. Her model was and always will be ''Don't follow someone else's story; create your own story, create your own lifestyle, because 'home is where your story begins.'''  From a single realtor, to developing a strong team of realtors she personally mentored and later owning a real estate brokerage firm, Nina's focus remained the same. She continues to channel her high energy and extensive experience into understanding her client's needs and wants, and in helping them in their real estate journey. Nina's greatest honour is the trust others grant her when welcoming her in their life's journey.

Reflecting on Our Professional & Caring Realtors, Indra & Liz


One of the things that undoubtedly makes askNina so special and successful is the members of the #askninasteam. Indra Krikstaponis and Liz Silva are real estate sales representatives who put their clients first. They have a love for real estate and a strong passion for helping people, resulting in happy clients and a strong, well-rounded team.
Within a few minutes of meeting Indra, I knew she was a perfect fit for our team. In her demeanour, and in the little she said, I could tell that there was a fire waiting to burst! In a short interview, she exclaimed “Let’s go, I’m ready to start!”- and that fascinated me. Dynamic, committed, professional, honest and caring, I’m honoured to have her represent the AskNina team.
Upon first meeting Liz, there was something about her warm and genuine personality that attracted me to her. Speaking to her gave me a surreal sense of comfort and calmness, and that’s the exactly how you need to feel when you’re buying or selling a property. Her years of experience make her a strong Realtor®,but it’s Liz’s professional, yet humble and caring personality that perfectly complements the AskNina team.
I can’t see better Realtors®than Liz and Indra to help our clients. It gives me great satisfaction and honour that they will treat our clients just like I do. A team needs to feel the same and act the same, while also adding their own personalities and strengths to the mix. This feels like the perfect family to me- one that feeds from each other’s energy, knowledge and assistance. I love my family at the AskNina team and…
We hope you’ll enjoy getting to know them a little more, too.  Read on!
About Indra Krikstaponis, Sales Representative
Indra has been in the real estate profession for over a year. Her love for serving and helping people sparked her interest in the field, and her biggest desire is to provide the best service and care in assisting people with one of, if not the biggest purchase of their life- a home. She loves the fact that she’s able to meet new people every day. She’s constantly faced with new personalities, which brings on its own set of challenges, and in turn, allows her to use her creativity, ideas and experiences to communicate with them. She’s come to realize that treating clients like family and friends is the best way to form meaningful relationships. 
When her clients are happy, she’s happy! She feels the most rewarded when clients refer their friends and family members, validating the fact that she provided them with incredible service. The greatest challenge Indra faces occurs when the market is very busy, and she has to figure out how to manage time between work and family. There is always something new to learn, which keeps her on her toes! 
Her goals for 2020 are to improve and perfect her knowledge in real estate- she hopes to learn each and every single detail about the profession! She’s very blessed to be working alongside a dynamic team of professionals who have ranked in the top 1% of Realtors® registered with the Toronto Real Estate Board since 2016 (that’s top 1% of 53,000 members aka “agents”). She’s thankful to Nina for being a wonderful teacher, person and friend, and is so grateful to have such an amazing mentor who has been beside her every step of the way!
