Hamilton, Kingston and Sarnia the latest cities to get StreetCity branches
LONDON, ON, Feb. 28, 2017 /CNW/ - StreetCity Realty Inc. announced today that it has opened three new branches, doubling its Ontario network, as it continues on its rapid growth path. The new offices -- in Kingston, Hamilton and Sarnia -- bring to seven the number of communities in which StreetCity has offices. Other locations include London, Thunder Bay, Glencoe and St. Thomas.
As well, three high-profile, successful realtors in those cities have joined the StreetCity management team and will head up branches in their home cities. StreetCity Realty, which launched its brand in mid-2016, is a rapidly growing new presence in the Ontario real estate brokerage business and is headed by prominent realtors Costa Poulopoulos and Mary Johnson, who operate out of the London office.
"We are thrilled to have Sean Morrison, Donna Mathewson, and Liza Tallen and their teams joining us," said Mr. Poulopoulos, CEO of StreetCity. "Not only are these absolute top performers in the business, they also fit our culture of collaboration and authentic relationships. "
Sean Morrison has joined StreetCity as Area Manager in the Hamilton, Burlington, and Stoney Creek office effective immediately. Mr. Morrison is also a Director of the Ontario Real Estate Association and was a former top salesperson with a national real estate brokerage company in Hamilton and Stoney Creek for many years. The Hamilton office is located at 247 Centennial Parkway.
"I am looking forward to an exciting management career with such a progressive company as StreetCity, said Mr. Morrison. "I feel that the industry is in need of a refreshing new brand and I'm looking forward to helping StreetCity grow."
Also coming aboard at StreetCity is Liza Tallen and her high profile team. Ms. Tallen is launching and managing StreetCity's new Kingston office, located at 593 Norris Court in Kingston. Ms. Tallen was an award-winning, lead member of one of the top teams at a national real estate brokerage company for many years.
"When I heard about the exciting creation of a new real estate brand, StreetCity, and that it was owned and operated by Costa and Mary and supported by Peerage Realty Partner, I knew I had to be a part of this awesome organization", said Ms. Tallen.
In Sarnia, Donna Mathewson, a former top salesperson with the local office of a competing national realty firm, has joined StreetCity as the branch manager for the Southwestern Ontario city. Ms. Mathewson is also the incoming President of the Sarnia-Lambton Real Estate Board. The new StreetCity office is located at 545 Murphy Road, Unit 2.
"I personally feel that Sarnia, and the whole industry, is primed for a new real estate brand and I was particularly drawn to the value proposition from StreetCity," Ms. Mathewson said. "I was excited to be selected to join this powerful team of industry leaders."
"This is only the beginning for StreetCity Realty," said Gavin Swartzman, CEO of Peerage Realty Partners. "Costa and Mary are already working on plans for more branches across Ontario as they build out a top-tier realty company by doing things differently for real estate sales people and for home buyers and sellers."
