Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Ian M. Charlebois is the owner, chairman, CEO and broker of record at RE/MAX Citywide Realty Inc., a real estate brokerage whose vision and strategic directions are infused with a commitment to delivering value-added customer service at all stages of the sales experience. RE/MAX Citywide’s high-performing sales team is a reflection of Ian’s abilities to recruit and retain talent, set the stage for the brokerage’s growth, build on proven results, and integrate emerging technologies into the team’s methods of operation. This year, Ian was named REALTOR® Magazine’s first non-U.S. 30 Under 30 Honoree.
As a REALTOR®, Ian works alongside a sales team specializing in residential and commercial real estate. His specific areas of expertise include residential resale, new home sales, land acquisitions, and property development. Ian holds a mortgage license which allows him to assist buyers and sellers in accessing a network of over 90 financial lending institutions. When interviewed by Sara Bedal, CanadaOne® Business Editor in 2010, Ian offered this advice to aspiring entrepreneurs: “Prove to yourself that your product or service works – then build on it.”
Ian holds two university degrees and has systematically supported the learning establishments that have shaped him along the way. He continues to stay engaged with his alma mater by donating money to support essential student services, and by giving of his time and energy through volunteering at various events as a mentor to younger students. Among his core values is that of giving back to local institutions that actively pursue excellence through learning.
When he is not selling real estate or volunteering in his community, Ian stays active by playing hockey, going to the gym, and enjoying outdoor activities. His commitment to sports and his respect for fellow athletes have motivated him to engage his brokerage in the sponsorship of local amateur athletes who are aspiring to reach a professional level.
