Royal LePage Aspire Realty buys office in Terrace

Owner Rod Mcleod said the move will increase connectivity in northern B.C.

Rod McLeod at Royal LePage Aspire Realty has purchased the Terrace Real Estate Company office at 4665 Lazelle Ave from Shannon McAllister.

McLeod also owns offices in Valemount, Quesnel, Chetwynd, Burns Lake, Terrace and a main office in Prince George.

“What we are trying to accomplish here for the most part is to expand and have a real connectivity in northern B.C.,” said McLeod.

“I think with everything going on with all of our LNG and things going on and the movement up there I think that Terrace is going to do very well, we’ve done business up there with people who have moved in there with international companies and I think there is a great opportunity for Terrace.”

McLeod said Royal LePage is the largest Canadian owned real estate company with over 18,000 agents. Expanding througout northern B.C. is important for both agents and customers becasue it allows for a robust referral system. For example, an agent in Prince George could refer a client that is moving to Terrace to a local agent.

Born and raised in Prince George, McLeod has been in the real estate business since 2005. He purchased Royal LePage Prince George in 2011.

“It’s a great office that Shannon had there, great agents there, they are very great to work with, they are experienced, they know their market and they look after their clients well so it was an easy transition for us to take over.”
