I’m Monika and Place In The City is a lifestyle blog documenting city life well lived. I share my favourite things about urban living hoping it brings a little fun into your day or motivates you to seek out your dream home.

My blog will give you the insight to everyday downtown living. I’m all for paying it forward, so whether it’s a fantastic cup of coffee that made my morning, a new brunch spot, or the always reliable cleaning service, I’ll write about it. Just bought your 1 bedroom condo but don’t know how to furnish it? I’ll write about best furniture solutions around. Whether you’re new to the city, looking for a fun read about my current design obsessions, or want to learn something about the real estate market, you’ll find it here.

I’m a City Girl. The city always fascinated me – its culture, architecture, social interaction and the different lifestyles it offers. Above it all, I truly think that urban living, especially in downtown Toronto, is the most sustainable environmentally, socially and economically. Having lived in Toronto for over 20 years, I resided in many of our vibrant neighbourhoods, from Bloor West to The Beach, until I decided to give downtown living a try. I found my place in the city and haven’t left since.

As a REALTOR and an Urbaneer with one of the top brokerages in Toronto, I understand today’s city dweller. At the heart of every city there are neighbourhoods that define it, and I know that it’s when you find that one interesting, special, fun or inspiring thing about a neighbourhood you live in, only then you can truly call it your own.
