The Roots of Macdonald Realty

CEO Lynn Hsu first purchased Macdonald Realty in 1990 after growing tired of the industry’s poor reputation. Her goal was to build a brokerage firmly rooted in strong ethics and professionalism, while delivering a new standard of client service. To date, Macdonald Realty has expanded to 22 offices across British Columbia and is Western Canada’s largest integrated real estate firm that provides residential, commercial, property management, and new development project marketing services. 

Macdonald Realty is the first real estate company to be recognized by CoachingWise

Investing in our Real Estate Advisors learning and development is a critical component to how we help them achieve their goals. Their success is our success and we make every effort to help you build a rewarding, long-term career through the right business practices. To help our Advisor partners grow their business, we have developed a proprietary learning and development program called Connected Learning. Macdonald Realty has been recognized as the only real estate brokerage in Canada to have earned the International Coaching Federation’s Coaching Wise Award for the development of a coaching culture and approach to education.

Here are a few of our most popular programs:

  • Subject Matter Experts

Culture of Partnership

Macdonald Realty is more than just a real estate company: it is a real estate family. You will feel it the minute you walk through the door of any one of our offices. We are invested in your success and it is reflected in how we have designed our business structure - one that is unique to the industry. Unlike many brokerages that rely on selling franchised offices to independent owners, 90% of our offices are privately-operated.This enables us to uphold a strong and consistent brand standard across all offices, deliver support programs to all Advisors, and provide superior exposure and access for our Advisors’ clients. Every Real Estate Advisor is also supported by a non-competing Managing Broker. This means, their measurement of success is truly helping you achieve your success. It is no wonder that many of our advisors have been with us for 10, 20, 30+ years!
