The Real Estate Show with Jay Richardson
Daily on Information Radio…. Helpful information about all things real estate from one of Muskoka’s leading waterfront specialists.
Lake of Bays, Muskoka – there is no place like it. Sitting on your dock surrounded by the unspoiled beauty of the the lake, towering pine trees and ancient glacial outcroppings. There are so many reasons to have a cottage in this magnificent land. To reconnect with family, with nature, with the spirit of the land. To take long afternoon naps after early morning canoe trips. To laugh with friends as you sit on the dock and watch the amazing sunsets. Life is good and it doesn’t get much than this.
Our Company – Royal LePage
Celebrating our Canadian history
Royal LePage is a leader in Canadian real estate since 1913.
Founded by Albert LePage when he was just 26 years old, Royal LePage now has nearly 14,000 agents across the country. And we firmly believe that you can only become a leader by being the best.
For over 99 years, Royal LePage has led the real estate industry. We helped found the Toronto Real Estate Board and Ontario Real Estate Association, and set the standards for all other real estate companies to follow. We have expanded across the country so that wherever you want to live, you will find a Royal LePage agent ready to help. We have added new services to help our clients realize their dreams and secure their future.
And we remain steadfastly and proudly Canadian. We have never forgotten our roots.
Albert LePage was a pioneer whose innovation and belief in customer service helped transform the real estate industry. He built a company based on professionalism, principled conduct and the highest moral and ethical standards. And those principles still guide us in everything we do.
Today, Royal LePage has approximately 14,000 real estate agents and REALTORS® in more than 600 locations across Canada. Over the years, we’ve learned a lot about real estate and how to provide the best possible service for our clients. Since the mid-1990s, Royal LePage has more than tripled the size of its sales force and almost doubled its market share.
Throughout our successes, we remain dedicated to helping you through the real estate process. Our commitment to innovation and customer service is as strong as ever.
The Royal LePage network
With nearly 14,000 agents and REALTORS®, Royal LePage has an unparalleled network of real estate offices across the country. Not only do we have the best access to the homes (and homebuyers) in the Canadian market, our Canadian partnership with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® (the world’s largest referral network with over 127,000 associates worldwide) gives your property exposure to buyers from around the globe.
Royal LePage – Shelter Foundation
We help more than 30,000 women and children each year.
Let’s put abuse out of commission!
The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention and education programs.
Because we believe in the importance of giving back to the community, Royal LePage is the only Canadian real estate company to have our own charitable foundation. All of the administrative costs of the Shelter Foundation are underwritten so that 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to helping our cause.
Royal LePage real estate agents and their clients are working to create safer homes and safer communities by contributing more than $14 million since 1999 to help women and children across Canada. Through donating a portion of their commission on the purchase or sale of your property, our agents are helping bring hope and provide shelter for those who need it most.
Our brokers, agents and staff also provide volunteer time and in-kind goods, and hold special community events to help raise funds and awareness to end family violence for more than 30,000 women and children who take refuge in a shelter each year.
In 2009 Jay Richardson and her business partner Steve Leonard were awarded the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation Award – “2009 Team of the Year” for their outstanding contributions in assisting the shelter foundation and the local woman’s shelter in Huntsville, Ontario .
