Being in the top 1% of Canada

Tuesday Mar 10th, 2020


As some of you know, I had the privilege of attending my first Royal LePage National Chairman’s Club Retreat last month in Portugal. This event is only open to the top 1% of Royal LePage agents across Canada.

I found it incredibly helpful and inspiring to connect with... [read more]
