Sutton was founded in 1983 by the opening of Sutton West Coast Realty in North Vancouver. Sutton West Coast Realty is the largest residential brokerage operation in the country today.
Sutton subsequently altered the course of an entire industry on the principle that real estate was driven by highly personalized relationships between the REALTOR® and their customers. As such, the Sutton System was designed to put the REALTOR® – not the real estate company – at the center of each business transaction. It delivers consumer-driven services, cost-control and creative business freedom to independent Realtors® on the front lines of the industry.
Sutton was also the first real estate company to offer each of its REALTORS® with a personal email and custom website at the industry-renowned ‘sutton.com’ address. This initiative positioned its REALTORS® as specialized information brokers, and empowered them to continue growing responsive relationships through a cohesive – and still personal – marketing strategy.
With the entrepreneurial capacity to service local markets and appeal to unique demands, Sutton REALTORS® enjoy the best personal net income opportunity in the industry. Their efforts consistently exceed $20 billion in real estate transactions annually.
With approximately 8,000 REALTORS® and 200 offices across Canada, there is always a Sutton REALTOR® nearby!
