CA iPro launches Commercial Division

Ontario-based iPro Realty has launched a Commercial Division and appointed Michael Collins as its executive director.

Collins has worked as a senior commercial broker for 31 years in the Greater Toronto Area and throughout Southern Ontario. He is a two-term past-president of the Brampton Real Estate board and past-president of the Brampton Board of Trade.

Rui Alves, co-founder of the brokerage, says:  “iPro is one of the GTA’s fastest-growing brokerages and Mike’s experience and skill, both as a practitioner and industry leader will be an invaluable asset for the iPro organization and its newly formed Commercial Division”.

The company says that “most national brand franchised brokerages only have a few Realtors focussing on commercial real estate. Accordingly, it is not economically viable or practical for them to create a dedicated, in-house division.  However, since all of iPro’s locations are corporately owned, and with over 500 Realtors (and growing) working for the same brokerage, iPro is uniquely positioned to create a dedicated division…”

Broker of record Fedele Colucci says: “Not only will this division help our ICI practitioners, it will also help increase our already great value proposition for our residential Realtors who may have clients who require assistance in a type of commercial transaction that the Realtor may not be familiar with.  They can work with or refer the client in-house to a member of our ICI division, knowing that their client will be serviced by an experienced and qualified ICI professional.”

The brokerage has about 500 sales reps in nine Ontario offices.
