April 22, 2011 (Moncton, NB) – The city where the company was founded is about to take a bold, and potentially edgier leap into the 21st century world of private sale real estate. Ken LeBlanc, president of PropertyGuys.com Inc., announced today that the company will be expanding on the ground operations in Greater Moncton after a transfer of ownership that sees 2-time Franchisee of the Year, Donny Legere opt to pursue a career in pastoral work.
"Sarah Albert is the proud, new owner of our flagship Moncton location and she can't wait to bring the same "Brockovich Attitude" to private sale that has made her such a success as a top-notch mortgage broker" said LeBlanc. "To be honest she reminds me of that character Julia Roberts played; the feisty type who champions the underdog. I know first-hand that Sarah has been a passionate voice in the mortgage industry for those who don't know how to yell and I have no doubt she is the kind of gladiator who will battle it out in the trenches for the private sale consumer and not only help them sell their home, but do so without the high cost of real estate commissions".
LeBlanc also points out that in addition to her impeccable background as a mortgage broker and deep understanding of the real estate industry; Albert is an inspiring figure who knows how to get the job done. "Sarah has wasted no time in getting key people in place and building a winning team to help Greater Moncton homeowners use the award-winning PropertyGuys.com system to sell privately and successfully.
It also helps that Sarah inherits one of the most solid franchises in the entire country after the tireless work of Donny and Tiffany Legere who did so much over the past five years to solidify our presence in the Moncton market and prove that private sale really does work as a viable option to traditional real estate. We understand that Donny has another calling; one we wish him nothing but the best on, and he and Tiffany will always be considered as members of the PropertyGuys.com family".
With over 100 franchise units coast to coast, PropertyGuys.com is now targeting the Greater Toronto Area, Calgary, and parts of both Manitoba and Saskatchewan for new franchise locations for the 13 year old company. "We have a solid foundation in Atlantic Canada and key markets in Ontario and Western Canada, but it's vital that we continue to build on success from our home base in Moncton and add other key players in strategic locations", states LeBlanc.
Sarah Albert, Sean Hansen, Shona O'Brien and other members of
the new Greater Moncton team have recently completed training with
other new franchise owners at PropertyGuys.com University (PGU).
She plans to launch full time operations immediately.
