Six offices to better serve you anywhere
In 1995, RE/MAX du Cartier first opened at 835, Saint-Joseph Blvd. E., the prestigious Montréal street toward where professionals of all kinds congregate.
The rapidly growing real estate market prompted RE/MAX du Cartier to gain a foothold in the Ville Mont-Royal sector. Our agency has become an essential destination for buyers and sellers looking for a property in the affluent centre-west part of Montréal. Many of our brokers even live in this area. There's no better way to know a neighbourhood than to live in it.
In 1997, RE/MAX du Cartier expanded to the prestigious neighbourhood of Outremont. This agency played a key role in RE/MAX du Cartier establishing itself as one of Québec's major real estate agencies. RE/MAX du Cartier on Bernard Avenue has become a reference for sellers and buyers of prestige properties.
RE/MAX du Cartier had to open an agency in this rapidly developing sector. The office located on Saint-Laurent Blvd., in the heart of Little Italy, consequently opened in 2003. Today, 60 of our over 200 brokers work from this location and this agency is definitely the leader in this sector. Our market share is evidence of this! (Source Centris)
An indisputable leader in the industry, RE/MAX du Cartier opened its fifth office in the heart of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, on Ontario Street. A major location providing services to individuals, families and investors in a rapidly developing neighbourhood.
Since its inception in 1981, RE/MAX Immo-Contact Inc. remains the first franchise in Québec. In 2020, RE/MAX du Cartier took the opportunity to incorporate this agency into their organization. Located at 2820 boulevard St-Martin East, Laval, at the center of important highway intersections, this office is easily accessible to its clients. It is with enthusiasm that RE/MAX du Cartier has merged with RE/MAX Immo-Contact. With the addition of this 6th office, RE/MAX du Cartier now consists of over 300 real estate brokers.
A success story
It was in July 1995 that RE/MAX du Cartier opened its doors at 835, boul. Saint-Joseph, in the Plateau Mont-Royal. Quickly the real estate agency is noticed and several experienced brokers join.
RE/MAX's reputation, their excellent brokers and a rapidly growing real estate market encouraged broker-owner Serge Brousseau to purchase a second franchise in 1997, which he established in a space already occupied by a real estate company on Bernard avenue, in Outremont. Under the RE/MAX du Cartier banner, the location quickly turned around.
In 2002, Ville Mont-Royal welcomed the third RE/MAX du Cartier franchise on Laird Boulevard.
Then, very quickly, in 2003, the Cartier RE/MAX family grew with a fourth office in the Villeray neighbourhood, on Saint-Laurent Boulevard, in the heart of Little Italy.
With the opening of its fifth location in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, RE/MAX du Cartier now has an enviable reputation. The agency's more than 200 realtors and sub-franchisees cover all sectors of Greater Montréal.
RE/MAX du Cartier's administration
RE/MAX du Cartier is a success story thanks not only to the talent and commitment of its brokers, but also to its passionate support staff and experienced directors.
Mr. Brousseau obtained his real estate brokage license in 1986. Having achieved rapid success, he was named director of the agency of which he was assigned. Soon after, he became director of RE/MAX Outremont, where he would realize his goal of eventually opening his own branch. in 1995, he opened his first branch, located in Plateau Mont-Royal. His determination and charismatic charms quickly rendered him the indisputable reference in real estate. In 1997, Mr. Brousseau purchased the Outremont branch where he had once been director. Due to his favorable reputation, he was elected in the same year as president of the Greater Montreal Real Estate Board.
His success would continue, as a few years later, he would acquire the Town of Mount-Royal branch. As a recognized dominant figure in the real estate profession, he succeeded to become president of the OACIQ administrative council (Organisme d’autoreglementation du courtage immobilier du Québec), a position that he held with upmost professionalism for twelve years.
During this period, M. Brousseau opened a new branch in the Villeray district (Little Italy) in a modern and sophisticated locale. He would also become proprietor of the Westmount and Notre-Dame-de Grâce agencies. Unfortunately, the obligations required to manage these two extra locations became considerable and he withdrew himself from these agencies.
Always actively implicated in the formation of brokers, Mr. Brousseau established the Collège d’Enseignement en Immobilier (CEI). A few years later, unable to refuse their offer, he relinquished the guides to RE/MAX Québec. Today, CEI is a recognized institution in the world of real estate in Montréal.
In 2019, Mr. Brousseau proceeded to open a fifth branch, in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve district and finally, in 2020, a fusion with RE/MAX Immo-Contact agency which has a storefront in Duvernay, Laval. It is a great accomplishment that RE/MAX du Cartier now consists of six branches comprised of over 310 brokers to serve its clients wherever they may be.
This jack-of-all-trades still has many projects yet to be realized and will continue to execute his vision of innovation in a world in which he knows more than anyone: Real estate!
