It has been another amazing year for our team, we were the number one team again for Royal LePage in Western Canada! This is due to the amazing people we work with, our partners and of course, our clients—thank you for a great year!
In the same spirit, we are announcing that after 30 years with Royal LePage Foothills, we are making a move to Royal LePage Benchmark. If you missed it in the news already, Royal LePage Foothills, and its six Calgary offices, will be fading out. From Owner, Ted Zaharko:
“It’s happening for a number of reasons,” said Ted Zaharko, 70, who has owned Royal LePage Foothills for about 25 years. “One is it becomes increasingly apparent that in this current economic climate that a multi-branch organization like mine becomes difficult because the expenses have accelerated and revenue is dropping according to the way the economy is.
“It’s kind of a tight situation,” he added. “We ran into that situation. Less cash coming in and we’re just a bit behind in our commissions payable to our realtors. You see the writing on the wall and say ‘maybe this is the time to move down to a very small operation and move the sales people into the other Royal LePage offices’.”
As a result of these changes, Royal LePage Foothills REALTORS are moving to Royal LePage Benchmark or Royal LePage Solutions. We have chosen to make the move to Royal LePage Benchmark, and we look forward to continued success in 2016. Our address has not changed, and it's business as usual for us.
