  1. Josh Heppner pictured in this article is not even with Sutton W C, and has not been for years!! so much for reporting?

      • Jim, thanks for making the expeditious correction. I had a few emails this morning asking when I had rejoined the organization – which goes to show that REM continues to be a sought after source for real estate news!

        For obvious reasons, I was happy to see Sutton West Coast topping the list again and want to extend a big congrats to the entire SWC team and all their hard work to achieve this milestone for the fourth year in a row.

        It’s neat to review the list and see both franchise and independent operations as part of the top 10. I believe it speaks to the diversity of models in our industry and the many flourishing real estate businesses across Canada.

        Congratulations to those who made the Real Trends Canadian 250 list this year and wish you all continued success in 2014!

  2. Can anyone please add the numbers and tell us if “no one sells more real estate than RE/MAX?” They might to stop using it!

      • No Catherine. R.L.P. real estate services is one brokerage and Re/MAX is a franchise, so real trends counts each Re/max brokerage separatley, but Re/max is combining all re/max franchisees under one Re/max umbrella. More interesting to me is Right At Home that advertise that they are number one when this charts clearly shows R.L.P. Your community as well as Re/max Realtron being ahead of them.

        • Just curious how did Orange Square’s TOTAL of 90 transactions for 2013 rank on the list with RealTrends ? This number was taken from RESTATS if anyone would like to check for veracity.

          • Dear “Ted”,Why the fake identity ?
            F.Y.I.- REDATUM not a 100% reliable source of R.E. statistics and will not allow companies to identify them as the source. Real trends – is.
