St Jean Realty
Three years ago, Michael St Jean left Royal LePage to start St Jean Realty. In that short time, St Jean has become the top producer at one of Hamilton’s most accomplished brokerages.
“Lots of irons in the fire right now,” he says, “and I’ve barely started.”
St Jean finds himself dedicating a larger portion of his time to building the St Jean brand and ensuring that his brokerage is on the cutting edge when it comes to media and marketing. But he is also devoted to improving the industry as a whole.
“I believe that the industry needs to shift massively,” he says. “We have hundreds of people signing up to become agents every month with the wrong expectations and mindset. People should understand that when you sign up to be a Realtor you are making the decision to be an entrepreneur. You are starting a business. Agents should spend less time posting pictures of their cars and other stupidity and behave the way industry professionals would in another field.”
