Ontario-based real estate brokerage Search Realty is planning to build on its technology-driven business which has been named among Canada’s fastest-growing.
The Mississauga firm has just been ranked by Canadian Business and Maclean’s at number 38 in its 30th Annual Growth 500. The firm posted five-year revenue growth of 1,942%.
"This is a proud moment for Search Realty and we feel very honoured to receive this ranking in the Growth 500 list,” said Founder and CEO Sterling Wong. “I think it underlines how effective our Leads on Demand system is for generating consistent, quality leads for agents. And that's a key factor that really makes a difference when it comes to helping agents succeed in the real estate industry.”
He added that the support the firm offers agents is another factor in making a difference.
Growth ahead to include financing
As a former mortgage broker, Sterling intends to expand the Search brand into finance and insurance, as well as offering franchises.
The business is also reacting to the recent Competition Bureau decision on making data available and intends to launch a comprehensive real estate listing portal combining “eBay-style” bidding with sold statistics, trends, and neighbourhood data.
