BIG vs. Smaller Real Estate Firms: Why We’re Ottawa’s #1

BIG vs. Small-Scale Real Estate Firms: Why Team Realty is Ottawa’s #1. 


Real estate transactions are some of the biggest and most significant financial decisions you will ever make. Whether you are buying, selling, or using real estate as an investment, ensuring you have the backing of a brokerage with tenured experience at hand is a huge advantage. As part of Royal LePage, which can be traced back to 1913, Team Realty holds extensive brand recognition and for decades has delivered the highest level of service to home buyers and sellers in the region. 


Rooted and intertwined throughout the city and its various communities, Royal LePage Team Realty is a staple in Ottawa real estate. With a large team of distinguished brokers, agents, and support staff working together for you, their knowledge is more than just today’s real estate market and current trends – they know where the city started, how it’s grown, what is happening now, and what future developments look like. The intimate relationship between our full-service TEAM and the city of Ottawa is bonded together.


But how does our brokerage stand apart from boutique brokerages in the area, and why does going BIG make the difference in your real estate experience? Read on as we break down the main points that set our TEAM apart from small-scale firms.

Large Support Team

With multiple people working together, there is more time to focus on our clients so that they can receive the highest level of service possible and get the most out of their experience. We are a full-service team of brokers, agents, and administrative staff with extensive industry knowledge and experience, working together as a well run operational team to deliver quality with every transaction. While our agents are working on the front lines, the management and administrative team are hard at work behind the scenes handling paperwork and scheduling showings and other appointments to ensure efficiency from beginning to end. 


Non-Competing Brokers and Managers

As a large, reputable brokerage, our team consists of non-competing broker managers. Many smaller brokerages have their broker of record and managers selling real estate, essentially doing double duty. With bigger firms like Team Realty, these roles are in support of the agent and their client, allowing more time for a personalized real estate experience and an error-free transaction.


Reputation and Brand Recognition

Team Realty has massive brand-recognition as part of the Royal LePage network, and carries a positive reputation in the city. As a sizable brokerage with far-reaching capabilities and extensive promotion ability, listings can be seen and considered by many sets of eyes, many times a day. Smaller boutique brokerages don’t have nearly the same budget to work with, as they likely don’t have a corporate body backing them financially. 

Continued Education and In-House Training

Additionally, unlike smaller brokerages, our team is able to cite an extensive history of collective efficiency. Royal LePage agents receive frequent in-house training, allowing us to deliver quantifiably effective results. We’ve been ranked the *Undisputed  #1 real estate firm in Ottawa in terms of dollar volume generated and number of unit sales every year since 2005, and continue to shoot for the stars. This is because we’re adept at using our vast network to solve and prevent unnecessary roadblocks, streamlining your real estate process. 


Wide Selection of Agents

Smaller brokerages may come with many additional fees, creating a budgeting headache. Their selection of agents and brokers is more slim, leaving little room for expertise in niche markets like luxury homes, older homes, or fixer-uppers. Our broad selection of agents to choose from can help you narrow down what you’re looking for in terms of experience, languages spoken and much more to streamline your process. When you choose Team Realty, you’re choosing this same standard of quality, reliability and commitment as those before you.


Although smaller boutique brokerages carry their own set of independent strengths and have earned themselves a place in the market, Royal LePage Team Realty has proven to be of the highest quality in the national capital region for decades. Real estate decisions are some of the most significant financial choices you’ll ever make, so we suggest putting your trust into the hands of history, experience and unparalleled success. Call us today, we are happy to get you started on your next journey in real estate. 



*Based on the Ottawa Real Estate Board, Royal LePage Team realty, Brokerage has been number one for both dollar volume generated and the highest number of unit sales for each consecutive year from 2005 to present.
