Karen Yolevski, chief operating officer of Royal LePage’s corporate brokerage, Royal LePage Real Estate Service Ltd., has been recognized on Storeys’ list of the most influential people in Ontario real estate in 2023. This year’s list recognizes 20 change-makers (people, organizations and associations) in Ontario’s real estate industry who have had a significant impact on the market amidst changing economic conditions.

Yolevski is listed alongside a number of notable influencers of the real estate industry, including Mayor of Toronto Olivia Chow and Bank of Canada Governor Tiff Macklem, to name a few. She is recognized for her ability to successfully guide her brokerage through turbulent market conditions, and for her strategic vision for the company, embracing innovative technology to increase agent and brokerage productivity.

“It is a true honour to be recognized by Storeys alongside so many influential and accomplished professionals in the industry,” said Karen Yolevski, COO, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd. “Considering the current economic climate, it has never been more important for policy makers, real estate industry leaders, developers and consumers to work together to find viable solutions to Ontario’s ongoing housing affordability and supply crisis. I am proud to be part of Royal LePage’s efforts to keep Canadians informed, and to advocate for accessible housing options for all.”

Since joining Royal LePage in 2021, Yolevski has made invaluable contributions to the company and the industry overall. She boldly guides the leadership teams at Royal LePage’s corporate brokerage with locations in the Greater Toronto Area, including luxury brand Johnston & Daniel, Greater Vancouver and Mont Tremblant. 

Yolevski’s recognition from Storeys is well deserved as she continues to uphold the standard for strong leadership in an ever-evolving real estate landscape. She consistently offers her expertise and market analysis as a spokesperson for the Royal LePage brand, regularly appearing in major national and regional news outlets across Canada.
