We are pleased to welcome Barry Kindrat and Stephan Villeneuve to the Royal LePage network, effective April 1, 2019. Their new brokerage, Royal LePage Realty Team, has opened in Sudbury, Ontario with a starting roster of 14 sales representatives.
Previously, Barry headed up Mincom Sudbury Inc., building upon 27 years within the real estate industry. Stephan opened his own brokerage last year, and is now pleased to have the brand recognition and support of Royal LePage behind him. Together, Barry and Stephan will draw on their collective business acumen as well as their deep knowledge of Sudbury and its surrounding markets.
“Short term, our focus is on a successful launch for Royal LePage Realty Team and to quickly establish a market hold,” says Barry. “For the long term, it is our premiere service that will spur our growth and provide our agents with personal satisfaction and much continued success.” Stephan points to a simple philosophy to take them forward. “We function as a cooperative brokerage, supporting one another as a cohesive team,” he says. “I feel that’s why we lined up in such a harmonious way with Royal LePage.”
Barry and Stephan are keen to encourage their team to attend the training and big conferences hosted by Royal LePage. As previous independent owners, they acknowledge it was not often practical for their agents to get the same sort of exposure. “We intend to leverage all of the Royal LePage tools to benefit our agents, including rlpNetwork and Smart Studio CRM,” adds Stephan. “As well, the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation will become an integral part of our focus within the community.”
Royal LePage Realty Team operates with several niche markets including new construction, land development and residential resales. They service Greater Sudbury, Sturgeon Falls, Markstay-Warren, Wahnapitae, Coniston, Garson, Hanmer, Capreol, Val Caron, Val Therese, Espanola, Massey, Manitoulin Island, Alban, Chelmsford, Azilda, Onaping and Dowling communities.
