Top Agents Playbook Presents Who Killed The Agent. Episode 1. The Video
In September 2017, the 40,000 strong real estate community of greater Toronto was rocked by the execution style murder of a successful, popular and respected Broker in a busy downtown Toronto restaurant.
The 54 year old father of two boys didn’t stand a chance and while police continue with their investigation there is yet to be an arrest.
I’m Ray Wood and this is Who Killed The Agent
A little before 9pm on Saturday the 16th of September 2017, well known Toronto Real Estate Agent, author, television and radio host Simon Giannini was dining with a friend at an upmarket restaurant and steak house on Simcoe Street in the entertainment district of downtown Toronto.
Michaels On Simcoe is well known for fabulous food and wealthy patrons.
If you’re on a budget, the Surf andamp; Turf featuring a 6oz prime tenderloin with lobster, scallop and shrimp will set you back $85. And with that you might choose a Okanagan 2015 Pinot Noir from Canada’s British Columbia for 80 bucks.
But September in Toronto is home to the TIFF or Toronto International Film Festival and diners at Michaels wouldn’t be too surprised to spot a big name Hollywood Producer or Movie Stars like Colin Firth, Emily Blunt, Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman and Johnny Depp who have all dined at the restaurant well known to be one of the finest in town.

I dont know what Simon Giannini and his friend were eating or drinking that night, but the restaurant was near capacity with 140 diners enjoying the Michaels experience.
But that was about to change.
At 8 minutes to 9pm, restaurant security CCTV footage shows a hooded figure with cap and dark glasses entering the restaurant.
His dark gray hoody with a large letter B on the left side of his chest is pulled tightly over his cap and much of his face. In fact the hoody looks to be zipped up almost to his nose. He’s wearing lose track pants and runners
On the third step down, he hesitates and bends forward as if to hear something more clearly. He also looks to pull the sleeves of his hoody down to cover his hands.
He then continues down 10 steps, walks past the main greet
