Century 21 Canada maintains a strong presence in the 2017 Global 21 Rankings, accounting for 12 of the Top 21 offices in the world as well as the top producer in the world. These annual awards recognize the top 21 Century 21 companies, offices, teams and producers by sales production in the Century 21 System worldwide.
“Canada’s real estate market has made headlines around the world, and these results show that the country punches above its weight,” says Martin Charlwood, vice chairman and CEO of Century 21 Canada. “We make up fewer than 10 per cent of the Century 21 agents in the world yet dominate the global rankings.”
Toronto sales rep Ken Yeung of Century 21 Leading Edge Realty in Markham, Ont. earned the title of No. 1 Century 21 producer in the world by units and gross closed commissions. Yeung’s business is mostly in Toronto’s downtown core, focusing on condos. This is his second year in this spot for units, and first for gross closed commissions. It is the fourth consecutive year that Canada has achieved the No. 1 spot for top producer by units sold.
“Once again, I am honoured by this award. My days are quite busy, but when I take a step back and look at all I have accomplished in a year, I’m proud to have made so many people homeowners, and I appreciate the support of the Century 21 Network, nationally and globally,” says Yeung.
