Royal LePage Commercial and RealNet Canada Inc.

Innovation by two Canadian Real Estate leaders

May 14, 2014, Toronto, ON - Royal LePage Commercial and RealNet Canada Inc. have both played key roles in changing the face of commercial real estate in Canada over the years. Now, they have come together to offer a custom solution to Royal LePage Commercial that marries the powerful industry research of REALNET® with the custom branding of Royal LePage Commercial. 

This innovative partnership comes two years after Royal LePage Commercial was re-launched into the Canadian marketplace. “We are so excited to bring this tool to our agents and their clients, and to establish REALNET®as our commercial research partner.”, said Lucie Piazza, National Commercial Manager for Royal LePage Canada. Jason Lo, VP, Sales & Client Services for REALNET® Canada added, “We are also very excited by the opportunity to collaborate with Royal LePage which aligns with our ambition of building a better Canadian property market together.” 

Today, Royal LePage Commercial is a rapidly expanding commercial real estate brand within the Royal LePage framework of independently held brokerages, attracting talented professionals in all markets across the country. With more than 250 agents in 70 locations across Canada, its strength is based on the number of commercial real estate professionals already established within our large urban centres, cities and towns, equipped with the local market knowledge and expertise to serve businesses and investors. In the three major markets of Greater Toronto, Greater Calgary and Greater Vancouver, our agents will have access to a customized REALNET® platform. These professionals are actively engaged in their communities and give back by supporting the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, the only corporately branded charitable organization within the Canadian real estate industry. Since 1998, Royal LePage has raised over $16 million assisting 200 women’s shelters and violence prevention programs across Canada. 

Royal LePage Canada 
For over 100 years (1913 – 2013), Royal LePage has been, and continues to be, one of the most widely recognized and well respected real estate brokerage brands in Canada. In its 100th anniversary year Royal LePage Commercial was re-launched by Royal LePage (a wholly owned subsidiary of Brascan Asset Management) in 2012. The inspiration for the re-launch dates back to when Royal LePage Commercial Inc. was separately incorporated from its residential division in 1984. It charted the landscape for the development and growth of the Canadian commercial real estate industry and quickly grew to become the premiere, full service brokerage across Canada. It gained an excellent reputation both nationally and internationally and became the brokerage of choice for many of Canada’s real estate stakeholders, A-list tenants and investors. 

RealNet Canada Inc. 
Founded in 1995, at a time when distress transactions and lack of capital defined property markets, REALNET® has used market intelligence and insights to transform the Canadian property market into one of the most highly regarded and trusted in the world---by focusing unwaveringly on enabling better informed client decisions. In commercial investment markets in the Greater Toronto, Golden Horseshoe, Calgary, and Vancouver markets and in residential development and new homes markets in the Greater Toronto and Golden Horseshoe REALNET® can empower you the way it empowers more than 45,000 professionals across Canada. Start with better research and let the unique REALNET® platform of market analysis, insights and world class systems and tools allow you to be better informed and well connected.
