Our mission is simply to provide each of our clients with a bespoke experience tailored to their individual needs, wants + goals.

We strive for excellence in service, always giving you the “why behind the why”, through industry experience, coupled with unflagging integrity (we call it as we see it).

We’re aiming to reshape the real estate journey from uncertainty to empowerment, all while build relationships that last well beyond closing day.


David Dutton

Sales Representative + Founder

David began his entrepreneurial career, while still in University, by starting a personal training business. Upon graduation, he parlayed his sales and customer service skills into the dental sales industry, and quickly rose to management. However, he soon realized he needed to follow his passion in order to feel truly fulfilled. Real Estate was an easy decision, as it married his love of architecture and design with his sales and customer service background. Today, David is the consummate real estate professional. Recognized by his industry and peers, he quickly achieved the highest-level awards and rose to referral-only status. His success is due in equal parts to who he is as a person and the depth of his real estate knowledge. Working as a team with his clients, he ensures they are meticulously equipped to make the most informed decisions possible, and would never advise them to do something he wouldn’t do himself. 


Jonathan Philp

Sales Representative

An interesting upbringing - moving from downtown Toronto to a rural Muskoka community - gave Jonathan a unique opportunity to experience his childhood at two very different speeds. After university in Ottawa, he returned to Toronto and began what would become a 10 year career in the financial services industry. Various customer service roles led to increasingly senior supervisory positions. While this provided Jonathan with valuable people and business skills, evidenced by years of positive accolades from clients, it ultimately wasn’t his passion. Both of Jonathan’s parents built successful real estate businesses in Muskoka, and seeing their dedication to client care and helping people through an exciting, but often stressful time in their lives, inspired him to explore a new and exciting career path. At dutton+co, Jonathan sees a distinct similarity in the way David approaches his business and treats his clients with how his parents operated. Joining David and dutton+co provides Jonathan the opportunity to learn first-hand from someone who truly understands what it means to put the customer first. Jonathan is beyond excited to join the team and is looking forward to providing the full service attention our clients deserve.


Alison Martin

Client Care Coordinator

Time at home caring for her two young girls and travel abroad gave Alison the time to reflect on her strengths and abilities and to focus on the things she enjoys most. Seasoned by an array of opportunities in digital communications and project management over the last 17 years, Alison brings her expertise as a strategic marketer along with a keen eye for detail and love of Toronto to dutton+co. She draws on her vast skills and personal experiences to manage things behind the scenes and to ease the process for our clients.

Alison holds a bachelor’s degree from Carleton University and a social media marketing certificate from George Brown College. When she’s not providing our clients with the utmost care, you will find her spending time with her family, stretching at the gym or sampling the sights and tastes of Toronto’s many distinct cultural pockets.


Renee Elliott

Home Stylist, Re: Creative

The partnership between dutton+co and Re: Creative is a wonderful fit. Both teams are focused on one thing, knocking it out of the park for our clients.

Re: Creative (www.recreativeworks.com) is a Toronto based Property Styling Team with a goal to bring a modern look to the Toronto real estate market. Our aesthetic is eclectic and we love to mix vintage, modern and the unexpected. We approach each home with a fresh slate, designing each room to look like it belongs in a magazine and so no two spaces we do look the same. In an increasingly competitive market, we want your property to look its best.
