MEET OUR TEAM:

Kevin Larose

Sales Representative

In 2000, after roughly two decades of hard work and success in sales and business ownership, Kevin decided to follow his heart into real estate. He never looked back.

Like most people, Kevin had seen both good and bad experiences working with agents. So when he made the move, he focused on serving his clients with the respect and care we all deserve when making decisions about our homes.

“I love this business. For me, it’s always been about building relationships. Everyday I work with smart, friendly people. It’s been the most exciting and rewarding time of my professional life. There is nothing more gratifying than working in my community and helping people achieve their dreams.”

Kevin also takes pleasure in learning everyday, improving industry standards, and coaching others to achieve their best. In 2011, he founded a Mastermind group of top GTA real-estate professionals. This group fosters leadership in client service, develops new tools and business practices, and champions innovation and self-awareness in the field.

Kevin and Marlene, and the entire Larose Team, are passionate about giving back to the community, participating in numerous charitable organizations and neighbourhood events. “We work here, we live here; it’s our responsibility and privilege to make it a great place to be.”

Outside the office, Kevin loves to cook, spend time with family and friends, and travel the world. He is an avid sports fan- Go Jays and Go Leafs!

“My goal is to be your professional realtor for life! I look forward to meeting with you and working together soon.”
