MONCTON, NB, Feb. 16, 2012 /CNW/ - When you're a company built on helping consumers do things differently, it's not unusual to approach finding franchisees with that same attitude. That's the reason why Ken LeBlanc, President and CEO of PropertyGuys.com and his team will be personally greeting show attendees at Booth 1408 at the Calgary Home Show February 23-26.
"We've helped thousands of Canadians sell their own homes in the past decade", states LeBlanc. "Although we have a couple of great franchise operators in Calgary already, we don't enough coverage in the area yet to be a true force in this rapidly growing industry. So we thought a booth at the show would be a great way to introduce Calgary home buyers and sellers to our unique program and the possibility of operating a franchise here."
This hands-on attitude permeates the culture at PropertyGuys.com. In fact, LeBlanc built the company from the ground up by knocking on doors and putting up signs in Moncton, New Brunswick over twelve years ago. Today, PropertyGuys.com is the largest private sale franchise network in Canada, serving over 600 communities from coast to coast.
"Ken and I are looking forward to making Calgarians more aware of the unique nature of our franchise system," adds John Stordy, Franchise Development Manager. "It couldn't be a better time to get into the evolving real estate industry." The company also plans on having a couple of the current Calgary franchise owners present in the booth on the weekend.
As people increasingly turn to the internet to initiate a broad range of purchases, the demand for alternatives to an agent-lead real estate transaction is on the rise. "More and more consumers want sell their home privately and save a significant amount of money every day," states LeBlanc. "Our program offers the best combination of a local business team and a robust website that provide a more affordable and really, just a more logical solution. As we like to say, PropertyGuys.com is not your parents' real estate company."
PropertyGuys.com will also be offering free listing vouchers (a $399 value) at the booth, as well as a chance to win $275 worth of booth furniture. "We don't want to ship the furniture back east, so why not give it to a show patron?" laughs LeBlanc.
