Brokers Should Cooperate
Ivey Says So; We Believe So
At SVN Rock Advisors Inc., we believe in co-brokerage. We believe the industry as a whole, and everybody in it, benefits if brokers work together to bring deals to the wider marketplace. And don’t take our word for it. We asked the Ivey School of Business to study the co-brokerage phenomenon. Their report, Ivey Study on Co-Brokerage, explains why brokers may be hesitant to enter into co-brokerage, but how entering into such arrangements can give them wider exposure and higher prices for their clients. We believe that, by working together as an industry, we can generate more and better business for all, and the numbers back us up.
Did you know that co-brokering…
- improves the service for your client and makes them a happier about you?
- enhances your reputation among prospective clients?
- reduces your overhead costs, including marketing, staff training and management?
At SVN Rock Advisors Inc., we are experts in buying and selling apartments, but there are over 25,000 apartment buildings in Ontario and they are owned by 13,000 owners. We can’t hope to develop a personal relationship with all 13,000 apartment owners out there. We can’t hope to gain enough knowledge of every territory out there. We can’t do this alone. We need you.
Watch the video below to learn what is possible by co-brokering with SVN Rock Advisors Inc. By joining with us, we can help each other broker apartments far and wide. You know your area better than we can ever hope to. You have a personal relationship with your clients. You may know who wants to buy and sell, but like us, you don’t have access to the full market in order to make the best transactions. We can help you find the people to make the transactions happen.

Darryl McCullough CCIM SEC
Broker - Royal LePage Lakes of Muskoka Realty Inc., Brokerage
President - Crescent Equity Management Inc.
Since 1972, I have been given the opportunity to interact with seasoned partners and clients in structuring and organizing both simple and complex real estate transactions involving acquisition, disposition, finance, and consulting in Canada and throughout the United States. It has trained me to bring a unique, personal client-centered approach to each assignment, from simple to complex transactions and the diverse clientele who own them.
In 1984 I received the Certified Commercial Investment Member, CCIM, designation (www.ccim.com); an internationally recognized identity confirming amortized knowledge in the disciplines of investment, development etc.
Another prominent membership I thankfully am able to continue holding is with the U.S. based Society of Exchanges Counselors (www.secounselors.com). This organization shares my belief in pursuing and demonstrating problem solving techniques in the real estate industry based on proven principles of integrity, professionalism, and accountability. Through this organization I continue to dedicate myself to what is true in the discipline of real estate problem solving.
Technology coupled with a learned research and analytical skill set now allows me to carry out these functions with selected projects from my adopted Muskoka home.
I continue to maintain an ever changing “student” learning status not only related to the physical asset, but equal or more importantly, drawing out corporate/personal situations and objectives and then knitting together ultimate benefit packages based on creative solutions via time honoured formulas.
