Michael St. Jean, St. Jean Realty

Age: 32 

Michael St. Jean led his Hamilton-based team through a ridiculously successful 2016 in which they sold just under 300 properties. By the end of May 2017, they had already topped last year’s total. Part of that success has to do with a runaway Hamilton market, part of it has to do with partnering with developers; but the primary reason for St. Jean’s ascension is dedication.

“My entire life revolves around real estate,” he says. “It’s all I’ve ever known. I never considered another career.”

Even though the Hamilton market has quickly transformed into one of the GTA’s most active, St. Jean knows there is a lot of work left before his hometown’s reputation has been completely rehabilitated.

“As we continue our mission to revitalize our city, my view is that the Hamilton region will continue to grow exponentially over the next 12 months.”
