The founders

The Brady Family, Charles & Wendy Ma, Ray Chan

In 2020, the founders of ARE came together with an aligned desire to establish a real estate agency that would be set apart in its values-centric service for others, a clear vision for community building and excellent storytelling.

Combining their heart for community and extensive experience in real estate representation and development, ARE was founded to challenge the status quo of the real estate industry by putting the heart of people and relationships back into centre focus.
