Can you remember back to when you were a child, and the countdown to a special holiday or birthday seemed never ending? With each passing day, the excitement would build until you got so close you could see the minutes on the clock passing by as you counted them down. At RE/MAX INTEGRA, we have been feeling that similar level of excitement with some news we have been waiting to share!

Today, we are very excited to announce some special news out of Ottawa, Ontario. Jeff and Margie Hooper of Keller Williams Ottawa Realty are partnering with Ken McLachlan, Debra Bain, and Steve Tabrizi of RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Ltd.  The conversion includes two offices in Orleans and Central Ottawa, which Jeff and Margie have grown to become the largest Keller Williams office in Canada consisting of nearly 300 agents.  This is an exciting step forward for RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Ltd., which with this partnership will form RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Group. With the help of Jeff and Margie, we expect to see continued growth and success in the Ottawa market.

Jeff and Margie opened the first Keller Williams office in Ontario, and since then have been building and growing their business. With a combined 47 years of experience in the real estate industry, it is no surprise they consistently had the number one KW office in Canada in every category of measurement, and were consistently named among the top ten offices. With professionalism and dedication to providing excellent service already a standard, it was the rich Canadian resources, the shared vision and plan for the future, along with the impressive lead generating system, and industry leading technology and training for agents that attracted Jeff and Margie to the RE/MAX brand.

With the dedicated staff providing technology, training and leadership at RE/MAX Hallmark, new sales associates will be welcomed in an environment where their knowledge and expertise will be leveraged to move forward as a force to be reckoned with in the industry. With the two new offices, Ken and Debra will remain in  partnership with Jeff and Margie Hooper, who will continue to be an integral part of the business.

Please join us in welcoming Jeff and Margie Hooper as well as all the Associates to the RE/MAX family and a big congratulations to all on this very exciting announcement!
