“Having worked with the people at Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, I feel like I’m a part of a family. It’s an incredible opportunity, an incredible job and I’ve said this to our people many many times, this is the best job I’ve ever had.”
My father was in real estate, and all the time when I was at home, I was probably one of the only kids in the neighbourhood that really understood what a residential or a commercial real estate agent did.
I ended up getting a summer job in a commercial real estate company and never left. I worked for commission sales people, I’ve always loved their entrepreneurial spirit, I’ve always loved their creativity, I’ve always enjoyed working with them. When I came to Sotheby’s International Realty Canada I found that the people that work for our company are as creative, as professional and as enthusiastic as I’ve ever seen.
I’ve had chance to travel a great distance and seen many different cities, and it’s always phenomenal to come back to Canada. Toronto is home, and that’s where our family is. One of my favourite things to do is to spend time with family and friends and my wife Tanya would tell you that that’s her absolute favourite thing to do.

I take a very collaborative approach to leadership, by sharing ideas and by having conversations and dialogues, I truly believe that no one has a monopoly on good ideas.
The easiest way to innovate is to be close to your sales people, understanding the pressures that they’re under, they’re the ones who are the closest to the client, and they’re the ones where the client is demanding something new better or different.You have to be guardian over that culture, because culture is probably more important than production.
We believe that our brand will help people to be more productive, help them to be more successful.
