Broker of Record
In 1991 Gerry had a vision of opening a brokerage where in each member of his sales team can have their own unique identity while taking advantage of trusted nationally recognized branding. November 1 1991 Gerry opened the very first Sutton Franchise in London Ontario. In 2013 Gerry had another vision of creating Mini-Franchises, which allow Brokers to capitalize on owning their own Brokerage, which gives them all the perks of owning, and creating an investment and an asset while having our management and administrative team look after the day-to- day operation. Serving as President of LSTAR in 1999, President of OREA in 2008, Director of CREA from 2010-2014 and owning his own Accounting practice for 12 years prior to opening his own Brokerage is a testament to the leadership skills, experience and knowledge that he has to offer and it has proven to be invaluable in building and operating his real estate brokerage office for the past 27 years. Gerry IS Sutton Group Preferred!
