Vivian Risi

Broker of Record
Royal LePage Your Community Realty Owner

My inspirational journey in the Real Estate Industry has made me an icon for business success. My Real Estate career began in 1974. When I discovered that the company I worked for had been sold, and I now faced a very uncertain future; I decided to risk everything in order to create my own destiny. With little business experience or money, I bought the company and overcame many obstacles to succeed on my own terms.

Today, I have turned a sales office of 18 people into Your Community Realty, with 10 offices and over 950 realtors. I am now the top broker and #1 independently owned franchise for Royal LePage in Canada. For 10 consecutive years, my company has also owned the number one market share in their local market.

One of my greatest gifts has been my role in a diverse list of charitable organizations. Contributing to more than 30 charities a year I have helped break fundraising records. In 2009, I was recipient of the Shelter Foundation’s Philanthropist of the Year Award. Most recently, the Richmond Hill Chamber of Commerce awarded me with the prestigious Mayor’s Award for Business Excellence, and the Vaughan Chamber of Commerce honored me with the Philanthropic Business Person of the Year Award. This year myself and Royal LePage, Your Community Realty was awarded Business Excellence for York Region.
