RE/MAX Realtron Realty Inc. expands its reach to Newmarket
RE/MAX Realtron Realty Inc. has joined RE/MAX Omega Realty in Newmarket. This move has secured the company a strong and established presence ready for the substantial growth that is expected over the next decade in York Region.
Already one of the largest brokerages in Toronto and within the global RE/MAX network, the deal will increase the number of RE/MAX Realtron office locations to eight. This has increased the sales force by nine percent and is now 685 professional realtors strong.
“This is a premier moment,” says Lu Dobson, former Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Omega Realty. “I am thrilled to have the business continue on in the RE/MAX
Realtron name. Having been the number one real estate brokerage in Newmarket for the past three decades, I have seen the town grow, change and flourish. I have known the Pilarski family (the new owners) for many years. The value that they bring to their agents, their clients and to the community is second to none. On the horizon, I see continued success for the powerful RE/MAX brand and for RE/MAX Realtron.”
This change marks Dobson’s retirement from the real estate industry after more than 37 years. Dobson’s daughter, veteran realtor Michele Branigan, joins RE/MAX Realtron’s leadership team, serving as Manager of the Newmarket location. Cameron Forbes is the General Manager.
“Last year, we implemented a significant growth strategy that would see RE/MAX Realtron double in size over the next decade,” says Richard Pilarski, “It’s an objective that aims to enhance the value proposition for our realtors and our clientele. Although quite an undertaking, quality remains a top priority”
“The timing of the move is ideal,” notes Alex Pilarski, “The GTA’s real estate market continues to demonstrate strong momentum, bolstered by solid growth throughout the 905 area. According to the York Region Planning Department, the Region’s population is expected to climb to 1.5 million by 2031 (an increase of 46 per cent over the 2011 Census figure), while the Town of Newmarket is forecast to swell to 97,100 (an increase of 21 per cent over the 2011 Census figure)”
RE/MAX Realtron Realty Inc. has been a consistent frontrunner in the industry since 1985, when Richard and Alex first opened their doors for business in Willowdale, Ontario. They’ve been recognized on numerous occasions, snapping up various regional, national, and international awards for Top Broker-Owners, Top Franchise, Highest Sales Volume in Canada, Largest Multi-officee Network in Canada, Top Net Gain in Sales Associates and Top Contributor to Children’s Miracle Network. RE/MAX Realtron recently earned the RE/MAX LLC Distinguished Service Award-the highest honour awarded to an individual franchise.
