About Brookfield Real Estate Services Inc.
The Company is a leading provider of services to residential real estate
brokers and their REALTORS®1. The Company generates cash flow from franchise royalties and service
fees derived from a national network of real estate brokers and agents
in Canada operating under the Royal LePage, Via Capitale Real Estate
Network and Johnston & Daniel brand names. At September 30, 2011, the
Company network consisted of 15,295 REALTORS®. The Company network has
an approximate 23% share of the Canadian residential resale real estate
market based on transactional dollar volume. The Company generates both
fixed and variable fee components. Variable fees are primarily driven
by the total transactional dollar volume from the sales commissions of
REALTORS®, while fixed fees are based on the number of agents and sales
representatives in the network. Approximately 68% of the Company's
revenue is based on fees that are fixed in nature; this provides
revenue stability and helps insulate the Company's cash flows from
market fluctuations. The Company is listed on the TSX and trades under
the symbol "BRE". For further information about the Company, please
