Saskatoon’s Jordan Boyes, who was featured in a REM cover story last year, is opening his own independent brokerage, Boyes Group Realty.
“Opening an independent brokerage was not something that just came up. I have had this goal for a while and it just seemed like the next logical step,” he says. “I set myself a goal to create a strong independent, recognizable brand, something that I think Saskatoon’s marketplace is lacking. I wanted it to not only benefit the clients that work with our brokerage, but the agents that choose to work with us as well.”
The brokerage will open with 15 to 20 agents and has plans to expand.
“My own personal experiences combined with seeing the situations and hurdles other agents go through over the years has allowed me to develop a training system for new people wanting to get into the business,” says Boyes. “The percentage of new agents that fail in this industry is huge and I want to avoid that statistic in our group by providing the tools and training necessary to succeed.”
Boyes, 30, has only been in the real estate business for five years. In his first year, he made $30 million in sales in a city where the average house prices are in the $300,000 range.
He says he’s opening the new brokerage with the support and partnership of his wife Brigitte Boyes and his business partner Cristin Wald.
