Alun Evans – Royal LePage Agent
Effective today, Michael Stothers and Allan Bain, co-owners of Prudential Town Centre Realty Inc., and their team in Oakville, have joined Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd. With the addition of this office, Royal LePage Real Estate Services LTD, brokerage now has 4 offices in Oakville and a total of 17 offices in the greater Toronto area, reinforcing our position as the #1 Brokerage in the GTA.
This merger of Brookfield (the owner of Royal LePage) and Prudential Real Estate and Services took place on December 6, 2011. Prudential licences were allowed to operate under the Prudential name until the end of their agreements. At that point, Prudential offices had to re-flag or had the option of becoming affiliated with Royal LePage in Canada. Allan Bain and Michael Stothers decided to join the corporate brokerage: Royal LePage Real Estate Service LTD.
