Re/Max Premier in Vaughan, Ont. increased its sales force by 40 Realtors recently as professionals from the former Home at Ease Realty joined its ranks.
“The changing real estate climate played a role in our decision,” says former Home at Ease broker/owner Jerry Celenza. “With markets moderating and a more competitive climate emerging, we wanted to be well-positioned to provide our customers with the greatest advantages.”
Gabriel Bianchi, broker/owner of Re/Max Premier, says, “Expanding our team will enable us to become a greater force in our local market, and we embrace the opportunity to do so, especially in light of the remarkable growth evident in both our local market and the overall region in recent years.” Vaughan’s population increased 20.7 per cent during the latest census period (2006 to 2011), well above the regional population growth rate for York at 15.7 per cent. In contrast, the Toronto CMA, which encompasses the majority of the Greater Toronto Area, saw its population rise by a more moderate 9.2 per cent.
