David Thompson has joined the Century 21 Heritage House team, based in Woodstock, Ont., as general manager.
“David has extensive experience at all levels of real estate management and we know our clients and our team will benefit from his knowledge and energy,” says Nick Lalli, co-owner at Century 21 Heritage House.
Thompson has spent the past three years as director of education for HomeLife Realty and has been responsible for the education of 8,000 agents in Canada and the United States. Over the course of his career he’s also been involved with Lone Wolf Real Estate Technologies, Coldwell Banker Canada, the Real Estate Institute of Canada and Century 21.
“In some ways, this is a coming home for me,” says Thompson. “My first job was as a Century 21 agent and I’ve since worked in every segment of the real estate industry. This role allows me to use all the skills I’ve gained over my career to help provide better service for agents and customers.”
“David brings a unique perspective to our business,” says co-owner and partner Roy Singh. “He has a perspective in all areas of the business and will use that to help grow our brokerage even further in south western Ontario.”
The Century 21 Heritage House brokerage is a unique business model because it’s structured to allow top agents to become partners. That helps the agents advance their career in-house, while also giving owners a proven succession plan, the company says.
The brokerage has 180 agents in eight offices in southwestern Ontario and represents a nearly 50 per cent market share in the region, the company says.
