Duncan McAllister has been a freelance writer with Metro News Canada since 2011.

He pens the weekly Condo Trends article in the Toronto print edition of the paper. From green roofs to choosing a mortgage broker, design tips and exclusive interviews with GTA’s top real estate experts, Condo Trends will keep you entertained and informed with timely and topical tips, advice and “news you can use”.

The Thursday Homes section also includes “Meet the Condo”, a profile of brand new condo developments which is also published online as “Suite Talk”. There’s the “What’s Hot in Real Estate” map, which lists each week’s openings, ground breakings, open houses and condo events across the city. McAllister compiles these news items from various sources, including condo builders/developers, real estate agents, market information services and PR/marketing/ad agencies.

He also writes advertorials for the Metro Custom Publishing group for all ten markets across Canada, both print and online. These articles range from Learning Curve, that showcases all aspects of Canadian education, to special features, guides, supplements, inserts and promotions.
