Re/Max Hallmark Realty was already one of the largest brokerages in Canada. Then, in April, Broker/Owners Ken McLachlan, Debra Bain and Steve Tabrizi, as well as Broker/Mortgage Barbara Brindle, welcomed Ottawa's Biggest Keller Williams brockerage to the team.

The move makes the newly formed RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Group the largest RE/MAX brockerage in Canada, consisiting of about 1,200 agents who serve the Greater Toronto Area, Muskokas and Ottawa.

"Ken, Debra and Steve always have their eye on the future," says Effi Barak, COO, RE/MAX INTEGRA. "And because they're able to look ahead, their Associates are able to get ahead. We're excited for RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Group and the frowth this conversion means for the greater Ottawa Network. 

Margie and Jeff Hooper, who together owned and operated that former Keller Williams brokerage, will continue as partners to lead the Ottawa offices they started in 2001. They say they were drawn to RE/MAX for many reasons, especially the brand’s power and visibility. The opportunity for their agents’ personal and career growth at RE/MAX was certainly too big to ignore, but seeing the tremendous leadership the RE/MAX Hallmark team provided was the impetus they needed to officially join.

“Margie and I are excited about adding Debra, Ken and Steve’s leadership strength to ours,” Jeff Hooper says. “They each bring something different to the table and, combined with our existing leadership in Ottawa, our company is going to be that much stronger. Our No. 1 priority has always been our agents and we believe the move to RE/MAX really benefits them.”
