RLP YCR Head OfficeAnnouncement: Canada’s Number One Royal LePage brokerage is expanding again.

Royal LePage Your Community Realty has acquired Royal LePage Timeless Realty a three year old brokerage with offices in Bradford West Gwillimbury and Keswick.

Already ranked as the country’s top brokerage (based on sales of independently owned RLP franchises in 2007), The Richmond Hill-based Royal LePage – Your Community Realty now boasts more than 600 Real Estate Agents in nine locations covering a sales area stretching from the shores of Lake Simcoe to the waterfront of Lake Ontario.

“By acquiring these ideal locations in two of the fastest-growing communities in the GTA, we can offer our clients a much larger inventory that stretches, literally, from shore to shore,” said Vivian Risi, Broker of Record and founder of Royal LePage - Your Community. “With offices in downtown Toronto and throughout York Region right up to cottage country, we can maximize our network and do an even better job servicing our listing and client needs.”

Timeless Realty founder Roxanne Henderson will stay on as a sales representative specializing in waterfront estate properties. “I couldn’t possibly have chosen a company more parallel to our approach and philosophy,” said Ms Henderson. “Vivian’s company shares a dedication to superior client service, full-spectrum Realtor support and a genuine care and respect for people and the real estate industry.”

Said Ms Risi; “Roxanne’s offices have forged a strong and recognizable Royal LePage presence in the Bradford and Keswick markets. Her Realtors are top-notch and we’re really happy they’re now a part of our family. We’re ready to achieve great things together.”

Ms Risi, whose Real Estate career began in 1974, established Royal LePage – Your Community Realty 10 years ago and transformed a small, 18-rep office into a powerhouse with locations across York Region and into downtown Toronto. With an inventory of up to 1,000 listings at any one time, Royal LePage – Your Community Realty also accounts for roughly 80 per cent of sales within York Region. Ms Risi also established her own Real Estate Academy. “We’re a company that believes very strongly in education and training,” she said.
