View the Difference. This is a guiding principle that Lifestyles North takes very seriously. Steve and Marla Simon, Team Leaders of the Lifestyles North Real Estate Team, began their career in real estate with the premise that they would be different. Coming from Fortune 500 companies with experience in marketing, sales and management, they knew they could provide what most Realtors do not. This includes, but is not limited to, marketing – The Lifestyles North Team provides integrated marketing plans to highlight your home’s assets and reach buyers outside our local market. The Lifestyles North Realtors provides service and are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The Lifestyles North Team are keen negotiators consistently achieving market high prices for their listings and negotiating in favour of their buyer clients with market knowledge and attention to detail.
While our clients come first and foremost, this has led to the achievement of industry recognition.
The Lifestyles North Team is proud to be the recipient of several very critical industry awards including being recognized in the top tier at Royal Le Page achieving #8 in the country for 2020.
Royal LePage Chairman’s Club
Royal LePage is Canada’s only Canadian based and operated brokerage. With just over 18,000 sales people Royal Le Page is the top brokerage in most markets across Canada. Lifestyles North is distinguished as consistently being ranked in the top 1%*of RLP Realtors having placed in this category the last 6 years!
Royal LePage Top Ten in Ontario
The Royal Le Page Top Ten in Ontario Award is given to those Realtors and teams that achieve top tier status in each province. This award, like the Chairman’s Club Award is based on either gross commissions earned and number of units sold in a given year. Lifestyles North is proud to be in the top 10 in both of these categories. In 2019 we were Top 5 for the number of units sold and Top 10 in sales volume. For 2020 we are Top 7 in GCI and Top 7 in units sold. We don’t think anything could better exemplify our commitment to getting results for our clients!
Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year
Excellence within the real estate market is important to us but Lifestyle’s North is also a committed member of the community. We have been giving back to charities (see our article on the charities we support here) and participating in community events in the Blue Mountains region since we were founded. In 2017 this led to us receiving the Blue Mountains Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year Award. Of course, we were thrilled with this! Everyone on the Lifestyles North team is a firm believer that in order to do business in a community, you must participate in shaping its future.
Royal LePage Award of Excellence
Achieving great results within the real estate market is a matter of distinction but maintaining this status is a true sign of excellence within the industry. In 2019 Steve Simon and the Lifestyles North Team was recognized for this by being the recipient of the Royal LePage Award of Excellence. This award is used to celebrate not only achieving results, but also maintaining them through a lasting commitment to our clients. The award is given to a Realtor/team that has earned a high level of award standings in 5 out of 7 consecutive years.
“Awards serve as a baseline for our standards in the market making them effectively a challenge to enable the Lifestyles North Team to raise the bar.”
What is in the Future?
With this recognition behind us the team at Lifestyles North looks forward to the future with the same enthusiasm, professionalism and focus on our clients we have always had. We plan to push the limits of both customer satisfaction and innovation within the real estate market to continue to set the standard for excellence in our field. We are proud of our accomplishments but do not see them as defining us. Instead these awards serve as a baseline for our standards in the market making them effectively a challenge to enable the Lifestyles North Team to raise the bar. With this in mind Lifestyles North will move forward and continue to define what makes award winning service!
