Feeling the squeeze? You’re not alone. According to a recent report by Ryerson University, the GTA is the fastest-growing urban region in North America. For homeowners, our increasingly crowded metropolis means that living space is at a premium – and that making the most of every part of the home is now paramount. Enter AGM Basements.

A specialist in renovations, AGM Basements is a market leader in basement finishing services throughout the GTA and beyond. With design centres in Vaughan and Oshawa, the company boasts a proven track record of over 5,000 completed projects, backed up by an eye-catching portfolio of bespoke spaces – and a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

From thoughtfully designed basement apartments to luxurious rec rooms, wine bars and professional-grade home theatres, AGM Basements has been helping homeowners transform their spaces since 1998.

According to AGM Basements CEO Ivan Atanasov, the company’s success is rooted in a culture that puts the vision of the client at the heart of every project.“Our clients’ needs are extremely diverse,” says Atanasov, “and no project is ever the same,” adding that AGM’s designers and contractors emphasize building strong relationships with the homeowner. Whether it’s “a full basement apartment for a university-age daughter or a bar with working taps for draught beer,” AGM delivers a meticulously tailor-made space.

For designers, meanwhile, the diverse range of projects offers a springboard for creativity. And while basements were once considered an afterthought in residential design, they’ve become an increasingly vital – and elegant – part of homes throughout the Toronto region. To that end, AGM’s continued growth is a testament to the importance of basements – and an exciting opportunity for budding and experienced designers.

“We respect the client,” says Atanasov, “but we also have a lot of respect for our designers. We’ve been doing this for a long time, and new designers will be stepping into a supportive environment that ensures their vision is realized and that their passion is rewarded.” Rooted in strong communication and mutual respect, AGM’s company culture fosters a supportive environment for both emerging and established professionals.

As a dynamic company with a progressive and design-driven culture, AGM Basements also offers a highly flexible work environment. While face-to-face client visits are a key part of AGM’s success, designers are otherwise able to work from home, with opportunities for both full- and part-time work available. What’s more, the company’s ongoing growth means that positions for skilled trades and administrative staff are also available. Positions in sales are also open, with AGM offering the chance to develop a financially rewarding career in a quickly developing field.
