At Royal LePage Team Realty, we love to help people buy and sell real estate. With humble beginnings, Team Realty grew by joining forces with Royal LePage O’Neill and Royal LePage Gale Real Estate. These brokerages were committed to helping residents of the Ottawa Valley and Almonte to fulfill their real estate needs from as early as the late 1940s and 1950s. The amalgamation of the Ottawa Valley and City of Ottawa locations was a natural coming together of like-minded real estate professionals with a shared passion for delivering high-quality results-driven, industry-leading services and a level of professionalism that contributes to the overall well-being of the community.
Today, we continue on our journey to remain Ottawa’s leading real estate brokerage, underscoring family, community, and giving back. We develop technology and provide support to our TEAM family to ensure the highest level of service is provided to help your family too. It is with these values in mind that we wanted to create a new monthly feature with highlights from two of our Team leaders, Jason Ralph and Kent Browne. In this series, called “Beyond the Sign”, Jason and Kent collaborate and discuss topics that are important to both our economy and the communities we serve.
Jason has enjoyed a lengthy career in sales and has now moved onto his next endeavour as a managing partner overseeing the daily operations of the company. Kent has served on numerous committees at the Ottawa Real Estate Board, was president of the board in 2001, and has spent more than 27 years in management and ownership. Jason grew up in the real estate business, following in the footsteps of his father Jonathan Ralph, former broker/owner of Royal LePage Gale Real Estate.
Together, with over 70 years of experience, different backgrounds, diverse knowledge, and a shared passion to serve the community, we are excited to bring to you a glimpse into what's taking place “Beyond the Sign” at Royal LePage Team Realty in Ottawa.
