RE/MAX Hallmark recruits dynamic sales team
with next generation focus on analytics and technology to Leslieville location
Toronto, ON (May 31, 2019) -- The addition of two seasoned realtors with extensive background in residential real estate from both an analytical and technological perspective will further complement the depth and breadth of the RE/MAX Hallmark brand.
Gloria Yeung and David Birnbaum bring almost 35 years of collective experience to the table. Their unique analytical approach towards real estate, combined with their online presence helping to educate buyers and sellers, has contributed to their outstanding success in the field. Both have earned numerous awards and accolades over the years.
David Birnbaum joins RE/MAX Hallmark from Forest Hill Real Estate where he achieved Diamond Elite Status as the number one sales representative in transactions throughout the province from 2015 to 2018. David belongs to that exclusive club of Greater Toronto Area (GTA) realtors that fall into the top one per cent for two years running.
His business partner, Gloria Yeung, was awarded “Rookie of the Year” in her first year of real estate and ranked first in the company -- Property.ca -- by her third. She has received numerous awards and was one of the top 25 sales representatives in terms of resale condominiums sold in the GTA in 2018.
They join RE/MAX Hallmark - Leslieville as a formidable team with unlimited promise. Their strengths are abundant. They both thrive in working within different cultural communities, communicating effectively, exceeding expectations, and focusing on their client’s best interests. Yeung is fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and English. Birnbaum is conversant in English, Spanish and French. Yeung’s instantaneous ability to connect with people from different backgrounds, cultures, and age groups, gives her a competitive advantage, while Birnbaum’s background in property management for Brookfield Property Management and wide-ranging knowledge of the Condominium Act and the Landlord and Tenant Act was pivotal to his success in the housing market. His well-rounded experience is sought-after by buyers, sellers, and investors alike.
“Attracting high-calibre sales professionals such as David and Gloria will take RE/MAX Hallmark to the next level,” says Ken McLachlan, Broker-Owner, RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Ltd. “They are the next generation of realtors. They’re tapped into all facets of the business, able to quickly identify trends and developments in the Greater Toronto Area housing market. They’re tech-savvy with a global following. Their business practices are founded on trust and integrity. They are the perfect fit for our ever-evolving company and we are thrilled to welcome them to the Hallmark team.”
The pair joined RE/MAX Hallmark because as technology changes and flourishes, the company has become the leader in the advancement of knowledge in the real estate industry. Hallmark’s focus is client driven and based on results.
“Their approach enhances the standard of excellence we deliver to our client base,” explains Birnbaum.
Birnbaum has worked with a diverse group of clients over the years, including first-time buyers, empty nesters and investors. His approach to real estate is simple and direct, with a purely analytical style that separates emotion from business dealings. Ultimately, he ensures that his clients are making the right choices based on needs and affordability.
Yeung prides herself on her ability to simplify the buying/selling process for her clients. Education is key, whether they are buying, selling or renting. She easily manages her client’s expectations by asking questions, listening, and understanding their needs. Yeung partners with a pool of professionals that she can tap into at a moment’s notice to make any transaction seamless.
While both excel at communication and have their clients best interests at heart, the synergy of their approach to real estate is complementary. They recognize the strengths in their differences. Their business backgrounds have shaped how they approach real estate, in addition to the diverse communities from which they come. This unique relationship boosts their business acumen and sets them apart from competition. The platform provided by RE/MAX Hallmark enhances that level of service and the professionalism associated with the name.
“The people, culture, and promise of teamwork at RE/MAX Hallmark resonated with both David and me,” says Yeung. “In today’s exceptionally competitive market, it’s important to work in an environment that is success-oriented. Hallmark has nailed that formula. We look forward to working with some of the country’s brightest and best realtors.”
