Moncton, NB June 8, 2010 - The Competition Bureau's case against the Canadian Real Estate Association means turbulent times for many traditional companies involved in real estate today. However, one concept is not only standing out, it is experiencing significant listing growth across key markets in Canada.

PropertyGuys.com is revolutionizing the way properties are marketed, bought and sold using the internet. They offer a marketing platform that completely eliminates the high cost of agent commission. The company now has 110 franchises across the country which covers some 2000 communities.

The company is pleased to release their top 10 "franchise areas" for the month of May 2010.

"Our customers love what we bring to the table," says Ken LeBlanc, President and CEO. "It's only a matter of time before more Canadians choose to give up their commission habit in favour of a better and more economical alternative."

The company's growing popularity is good news for buyers and sellers but definitely bad news for traditional agents who see their $8 Billion dollar grip on the market loosening with every new listing outside their system. Instead of commission, PropertyGuys.com charges an affordable one-time, flat fee which can be as low as $349 - determined by the options that the property seller chooses.

"The people that represent us in the different communities we serve are putting in endless hours of hard work to achieve these milestones," says Leanne Taylor, who heads up the Coaching and Best Practices side of the business. PropertyGuys.com franchise owners are the ones who are tirelessly fuelling this revolution. They face off against traditional agents every day. "We've got the hardest working real estate professionals in the business," adds Taylor. "We want to commend our people for the passion that they bring to our business and the dedication they have to the success of their customers."
