Harry was born and raised in the Greater Toronto Area. He attended high school at Don Mills Collegiate and went on to York University where he graduated in 1988 with a B.A. in Economics.
In 1991, after working in purchasing and distributions, Harry obtained his real estate license with the Toronto Real Estate Board and started working as a realtor® part-time while he also worked in sales and ran two of his own businesses.
Finally, he decided to make real estate his full-time career and he worked for Century 21 and RE/MAX before making the switch to Right at Home Realty in 2007. There he obtained his broker's license followed by a Mortgage Broker’s License in 2009.
During this time, Harry grew his own family’s real estate portfolio, allowing him to gain knowledge about tenants, property management, and the Landlord and Tenant Board.
Although Harry started in residential, his passion grew for commercial real estate, where he focused on sales and analysis of businesses and investment properties. This led Harry to continue his education in Appraisal and Commercial Investment Analysis.

RICHARD D. WEIMA
Branch Manager and Broker, Burlington
Richard's passion for the real estate business began in the 1960s and 70s when he accompanied his father, a premier home builder and developer in Sarnia, to new home sites. It was an exciting time for home ownership in Canada and Richard learned about the industry literally from its foundation.
At age 21, Richard obtained his real estate license, gravitating naturally to new home sales and then resale. Sarnia's vast petrochemical industrial base afforded a rich, corporate relocation environment in which he developed appraisal and negotiation skills. Four years later, he was recruited to open and manage the new Royal Trust branches in Sarnia and Chatham. As a young broker of a new company it was both exciting and challenging to recruit, train, and mentor colleagues.
After ten successful years working in the industry, Richard accepted a new challenge, moving to Burlington to manage the Canada Trust office at Appleby and New Street in Burlington. Later, he managed another real estate brokerage in Oakville, increasing its success to the top 21 offices in Canada during very competitive times.
From 1990 to 2015, Richard returned to his sales career as an award-winning Broker Sales Representative. He was one of the first in the industry to develop his own website and personal online marketing. He was also actively involved in the Oakville & Milton Real Estate Board, as Director, Vice President, and President. Involvement in the Board has provided Richard with another opportunity to learn trends and bring changes to the real estate industry.
