Royal Lepage The Company

Royal LePage, Canada’s oldest and largest real estate company, is celebrating its 95th Anniversary.

Founded in 1913 by Albert LePage when he was just 26 years old, Royal LePage is now Canada’s largest real estate company with more than 13,000 agents across the country. And we firmly believe that you can only become the oldest and largest company by being the best.

Over the last 95 years, Royal LePage has led the real estate industry. We helped found the Toronto Real Estate Board and Ontario Real Estate Association, and set the standards for all other real estate companies to follow. We have expanded across the country so that wherever you want to live, you will find a Royal LePage agent ready to help. We have added new services to help our clients realize their dreams and secure their future.

And we remain steadfastly and proudly Canadian − the only major real estate company that is 100% owned and operated by Canadians, for Canadians. We have never forgotten our roots.

Albert LePage was a pioneer whose innovation and belief in customer service helped transform the real estate industry. He built a company based on professionalism, principled conduct and the highest moral and ethical standards. And those principles still guide us in everything we do.

Today, Royal LePage has over 13,000 REALTORS® in more than 600 locations across Canada. Over the years, we’ve learned a lot about real estate − and how to provide the best possible service for our clients. In the past ten years, Royal LePage has more than doubled in size and tripled its share of the Canadian residential resale market.

Throughout our successes, we remain dedicated to helping you through the real estate process. Our commitment to innovation and customer service is as strong as ever. Plus, we are the only major real estate company that is 100% Canadian, with Canadian employees, Canadian owners − and Canadian values.

Royal Lepage Your Community Realty

About the Broker of Record

Vivian Risi’s inspirational journey in the Real Estate Industry has made her an icon for business success. Her Real Estate career began in 1974. Very soon after, she had achieved award−winning Associate Broker status while working with Canada Trust’s Real Estate Division.

Guided by gut instinct and a very small investment budget, Vivian became the Broker/Owner of the small 18−Rep office when it merged with Coldwell Banker. Her bold move quickly turned the company around during a recession, transforming the lagging office with minimal market share into a powerhouse of over 500 Reps, spread over 7 offices and a company that has not only revolutionized York Region’s real estate market but also setting the standard for Real Estate Companies across the country.

The company and its Reps in just over ten years, through a wide spectrum of investment climates and weathering the worst of them, Vivian’s franchise of Royal LePage − Your Community Realty has become Canada’s largest independently−owned Royal LePage franchise, accounting for roughly 80% of Real Estate Sales within York Region, Canada’s largest and fastest growing municipality.

One of Vivian’s greatest gifts has been her role in a diverse list of charitable organizations.

Contributing to more than 30 charities a year she has helped break fundraising records − in the case of York Central Hospital by as much as 52% as Gala Chair for three consecutive years. She is also a strong supporter of several shelters for Women and Children; Breast Cancer Research; Newmarket’s Southlake Hospital, Markham−Stouffville Hospital; Chum City Christmas Wish Toy Drive; Toronto Sick Kids’ Hospital and Amnesty International to name a few.

Vivian’s motto is her lifeforce: “People come first − and it shows!”
