About Us


What's Our Story?

Real Living is a company founded on innovation, teamwork and unmatched customer service. Simply put, we are a network of leading, entrepreneurial real estate companies built on trust, respect, support and fun.

Put it all together, and you have the unique Real Living difference. As the first consumer lifestyle real estate brand, Real Living is committed to innovation by bringing new programs, services, support, training and technology to its Brokers, Sales Professionals and their home buying and selling clients.

The company traces its roots to 1956. In 2002, the founding firms launched the Real Living brand, retaining the entrepreneurial-oriented culture that had made the firm so distinct for so many years. In 2009, Real Living was acquired by Toronto-based Brookfield Residential Property Services. In 2010, Real Living merged with another Brookfield national brand, GMAC Real Estate. In 2012, Brookfield and HomeServices formed a joint venture, HSF Affiliates LLC, to operate affiliate networks including Real Living Real Estate.  

Real Living and its brokers, agents, and buyers and sellers, benefit from a strong, stable, innovative parent company committed to Real Living’s continued growth, success and prosperity.
