Business Reborn

By Melanie Robitaille, Sr. Staff Writer & Graphic Designer

Companies, including real estate brokerages, have learned a hard lesson as we face the death of the traditional workplace. Some positions remain remote, but most employees now expect a hybrid component at the very least, and while real estate has always been this flexible, the offices that keep their doors open and bodies in the building continue to prove that investing in people always leads to success.


Imagine a real estate brokerage that’s designed to feel like home, where you can host events, better your physical health with an in-house gym and trainer, but that also has a kid-friendly space for working parents and clients. These are the exact amenities built into the new EXIT Realty Matrix location in Embrun, ON, and at the top of the list for Sales Representatives, Shane Pitre, and Natasja Rystenbil is the gym.

“Too often we set our own health aside hustling through our busy schedules when it should be the priority of it all,” Shane said. “As Founder and Chairman, Steve Morris emphasizes, if I take care of myself, I’ll be in a better position to take care of my family and my clients. The convenience of having [a gym] on site leaves me with no more excuses.”

“Although the gym is what has most value for me at the moment,” Natasja admitted, “with a baby on the way I feel a peace of mind knowing that once my child is older, I’ll have a space for them at our office while I get some work done on evenings or weekends, when childcare isn’t available.”


At EXIT Realty Advantage in Fredericton, NB they created an all-agent Steering Committee that brings ideas to ownership and management, and during the pandemic they saw video turn into a must-have so they pitched a media room/creative space.

“They wanted a place where agents could go and produce top quality videos for all social media platforms,” explained Manager, Dana Clowater. “Our owners immediately jumped on this idea and invested considerable money into this room. We’re excited about what it will do for our agents and of course the company going forward. We have top-of-the-line equipment and make it available to our agents at no charge.”
