For years, it has been the passion for business that is the drive for Blaine Carlson and realizing the need for a focused Commercial Real Estate Division in the Thunder Bay ignited an even a deeper passion to move the idea forward and make it happen.
From the moment of inception to, the actual day of launch, the new platform for the Commercial Real Estate Division was one year in its development. Along with Mario Tegola, Broker of Record of RE/MAX First Choice Realty Ltd. Brokerage, Independently Owned and Operated, located at 846 Mac Donell Street, Thunder Bay, who Blaine has been with for the past four years, the dream became the exclusive reality! No other real estate company in the history of Thunder Bay, has had a Commercial Real Estate Division.
T. Douglas Murray, CEO, Thunder Bay Community Economic Development Commission, had, in part, this to say, “Congratulations on the Grand opening of your new commercial real estate division. It is the clear sign of your years of efforts, hard work and dedication. We look forward to working with you and your clients who are investing and moving to Thunder Bay. This fits well with the Thunder Bay Community Economic Development mission of attracting investment to the city. We are very optimistic about future growth of the city.”
It is no secret that with any real estate agent, or broker of record, hours of operation are anything but normal! One is all over the time map and the map to be exact! Working early mornings, into late hours, with no set schedule for vacation or even meal time, for that matter, is how most agents are earning their living. Dealing with high emotions involving buyers and sellers, legal transactions and time constraints, is all part of the hype that makes every day, a day all its own.
Now with the new Commercial Division having launched the first week of June this year (2017), there is even more hype! With justifiable pride and accomplishment, spearheading this new division endeavor, Blaine Carlson is more than excited about the future of business development in Thunder Bay, and being in commercial real estate, at this time, gives him great vision for the future and what we can pass on to our next generation.
In a personal interview with Mr. Carlson, he stated that “This is just the tip of the iceberg for us at RE/MAX with Mario Tegola Broker of Record!” “As for myself and my family…we live in a place where many opportunities are presented to us daily and we never want to take any of them for granted!”. “I want to give to the community and help everyone prosper!”
