Cape Bretoner Returns Home to Take the Reins of PropertyGuys Franchise


Nov 15, 2011

A former pharmaceuticals executive will soon be managing his own franchise in the 21st century world of real estate where home sellers get to build the marketing program they need and keep more of their home equity. Ken LeBlanc, president of Inc., announced today that a new franchisee, who brings a wealth of corporate and franchise experience with him, has purchased the Cape Breton franchise from Walter Sawlor.

"Andrew MacDonald is the new franchise operator of our most Eastern Nova Scotia franchise and he is excited to be back where he grew up and to be taking over an existing franchise," said LeBlanc. "New initiatives, such as offering broker-based services through our partnership with Realtysellers Real Estate Inc., Brokerage will help Andrew and his team expand on the solid foundation that exists in Canada's Celtic country".

LeBlanc states that MacDonald is keen to work locally again. After a dozen years of corporate life, based in Ottawa and living out of suitcase, the timing couldn't have been better for joining the team.

"I can't wait to get out there and be involved first hand in helping homeowners sell privately and successfully without the high cost of traditional commissions. From a personal point of view, the opportunity to be part of the business community here again is perfect for me at this stage in my professional career", added MacDonald. MacDonald is currently in training with several other new franchise owners at University (PGU), a week long program at the company's head office in Moncton, New Brunswick.
