METROCITY PROPERTY GROUP – RE/MAX CORE REALTY
Ottawa, ON
Team leaders: Tarek El Attar and Steve Alexopoulos

For Tarek El Attar, co-leader of MetroCity Property Group in Ottawa, one of the less talked-about benefits of running a team is the emotional one. “Real estate is a lonely career,” he says. “Starting a team allows you to share your successes with other people and gives you an opportunity to impact more people’s lives by creating careers and having the ability to service more clients. It’s more fun to share in this together and build each other up.”

MetroCity is positioning itself to double its business in 2018. El Attar says one particular change in approach has made a huge contribution to the company’s growth. “One of the biggest mistakes we made was having showing agents and having them focus only on buyers,” he says. “Real estate is driven by listings – without listings, it’s impossible to grow – so a two-pronged approach is key. Having our agents focus on both groups – buyers and sellers – has created more well rounded Realtors who are actively seeking opportunities.”
