For more than a decade, Realtor Magazine, the official member publication of the National Association of Realtors, has honored some of the industry’s brightest rising stars each year with its 30 Under 30 program. As the title suggests, 30 Realtors under the age of 30 are selected based on stellar sales, business acumen, association and community involvement and other criteria.
Ian Charlebois, 27, broker-owner of Re/Max Citywide Realty in Ottawa, was recently the first non-U.S. Realtor named to the list, a goal he set for himself two years prior.
“I was ecstatic,” Charlebois says. “Any time you get recognized by NAR, it’s quite an honour.”
Charlebois was featured in a REM cover story in January 2013. His company has offices in Rockland and Embrun and has 32 sales reps, after recently acquiring the Riveria 2000 brokerage. “This acquisition will increase sales, our geographic reach and brand awareness,” he says.
