Real Estate Maverick Plans to Shake Things Up in the GVRD CEO at Canadian Franchise Show in Vancouver

MONCTON, Sept. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Inc, North America's largest full service real estate marketing franchisor is heading west to participate in the Canadian Franchise Association Show in Vancouver, BC on September 22nd and 23rd, 2012.  John Stordy, Franchise Development Manager, and Ken LeBlanc, President and CEO of, will be meeting with prospective franchisees at the company's booth - in which the private sale real estate franchise giant will feature a branded Mini Cooper.

"This is the perfect venue for us to connect with our West Coast friends and hopefully meet a few new ones," states LeBlanc. "The hot housing market in Western Canada makes it an ideal time to join our franchise team. The fact is, sellers out here can use our commission free program and keep more of their home equity in their own pocket. And now they can add a posting to, available through our partnership with local progressive brokerages, to reach even more online buyers. We believe that home buyers and sellers out west should have the same opportunity to save thousands of dollars in real estate commissions as the rest of Canadians".

"We have amazing coverage in Eastern Canada in terms of franchise territories, with over 90% of our territories sold east of Manitoba.  Our real growth opportunity is out West and primarily in lower mainland Vancouver," adds Stordy. "Our goal for this show is to meet as many people as possible in person to discuss the heritage and future.  It's a really easy business model to understand, once aspiring franchise operators realize that we're the opposite of a traditional agent or broker."

"So if you're a maverick and want to bring our proven program to your home turf, don't miss this opportunity to meet with us in person," urges LeBlanc. "John and I will do our best to accommodate all inquiries while we are here in town and if you miss us this weekend you can always check us out online at"
