The past year was no walk in the park for Canada’s real estate agents. Some markets stagnated, others exploded, and agents in both environments were forced to improve their strategies, adjust their attitudes and recalibrate their clients’ expectations.
But for the best agents in the business, getting better is not an undertaking reserved for when the market shifts. It’s something you do every day. For them, excellence isn’t a goal – it’s a process that never ends.
This year’s crop of Top Agents includes elite performers raised by the heat of fiery markets in Ottawa, Montreal and Windsor, but it also includes standout agents in Fort McMurray, Prince Albert and Edmonton – communities where sales have dragged for years.
It just goes to show that elite agents don’t let the market dictate their fortunes. They make their own luck – by being ready, by being smart, by being better than they were yesterday.
