FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 27, 2010 The crown jewel of Canada's Pacific Northwest, is about to shine a little brighter in the 21st century world of private sale real estate. Ken LeBlanc, president of Inc., announced today that the company will be expanding operations in a city ranked as having the 4th highest quality of life of any city on the planet. The timing probably couldn't be better since Vancouver has the 6th most overpriced real estate market in the world and second highest in North America after Los Angeles.

"Chris Drouin is the proud, new owner of our Vancouver location and he can't wait to become part of a wave that has been building over the last few months in western Canada," said LeBlanc. "We have franchise locations that are really cooking in places like Kamloops, Prince George and others; gaining more attention with the groundswell of interest generated by our ability to offer MLS exposure, Chris and his team will be able to capitalize on the momentum already building in British Columbia."

LeBlanc also points out that Drouin has an impeccable track record with over 25 years of service in the RCMP as well as being involved in his own contracting business for the past 15 years. For his part, the former Mountie has sold two homes privately and feels is really about giving consumers the confidence they needs to sell on their own without having to surrender huge amounts of after tax income.

Chris Drouin and his daughter Danielle are looking forward to attending training with other new franchise owners at University (PGU). He plans to launch full time operations in Vancouver North in March, 2011
