ABOUT ROYAL LEPAGE

Royal LePage has been a leader in Canadian real estate since its founding in 1913 and is one of the best recognized brands in the Country.  Then, 26 year old, Albert Edward LePage, was the first real estate representative in Canada to make a full time business of selling homes.  He built an entire business on new ideas andrevolutionized the way real estate was practiced.  In the early 1920’s, he helped form the Ontario Real Estate Association and the Toronto Real Estate Board, and set the standards for all other real estate companies to follow. For over 100 years, Royal LePage has led the real estate industry.    

On this foundation, Royal LePage has grown to over 16,000 representatives in more than 600 locations across Canada today.  Albert Edward LePage’s original vision and commitment to service is shared by thousands of Royal LePage representatives nationwide.  He was a pioneer whose innovation and belief in customer service helped transform the real estate industry.  He built a company based on professionalism, principled conduct and the highest moral and ethical standards.  The culture at Royal LePage is based on our commitment to providing clients the best customer service possible.

Philanthropy

The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters, violence prevention, and education programs.  Because we believe in the importance of giving back to the community, Royal LePage is the only Canadian real estate company to have its own charitable foundation.  All of the administrative costs are underwritten so that 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to helping our cause.  Royal LePage real estate agents and their clients are working to create safer homes and safer communities for the more than 30,000 women and children who are served each year by the shelters and support programs we fund. Since 1998, the Shelter Foundation has raised more than $18 million and currently supports 200 local women’s shelters and national partners across Canada.  Through donating a portion of their commission on the purchase or sale of your property, many of our agents are helping bring hope and provide shelter for those who need it most.  Our brokers, agents and staff also provide volunteer time and in-kind goods, and hold special community events to help raise funds and awareness to end family violence.  I'm personally very proud to be a Royal LePage Shelter Foundation supporter and contributor.
