Diane MacNeil has taken ownership of RE/MAX Newstyle Realty Ltd. Franchise here in Pictou County.
MacNeil has run the day to day operation of the business since it opened in 2004 and when the opportunity arose recently to purchase it, she immediately took action.
“After nine years with the organization, I had come to know the caliber and strength of the real estate professionals at RE/MAX Newstyle,” she said. “That combined with the idyllic lifestyle and affordable housing opportunities offered within the vibrant community, made my decision crystal clear. The outlook for both the region and franchise is exceptionally bright.”
MacNeil, will continue to oversee the day to day operations at the franchise on Stellarton Road which includes nine sales associates and support staff. MacNeil said she is hoping to increase the company’s market share, which is currently at 26 per cent as well as the number of agents.
Former owner Ted Rowe plans to focus his efforts on the Newfoundland operations he owns.
“It’s time for Diane to take the reins and really grow the operation,” he said. “I have no doubt she will take the franchise to the next level.”
