EXIT Realty Corp. International announced recently that the subfranchisor rights to the Region of South Western Ontario have been awarded to Lynn Findlay.

Findlay has an extensive background in education and sales. Working in the Ontario Early Years child development program, she provided support and resources to children and families, leading to a career as a French-language elementary school teacher.  In 2007, Findlay held a key position with YMCA as a child care supervisor and served on the finance committee for all YMCA Sarnia-Lambton Chatham-Kent childcare facilities.

Switching gears in 2010, Findlay achieved top-ten national sales status with accessories innovator, Miche Canada.  In 2013, she joined EXIT Realty Twin Bridges, Brokerage in Sarnia, as a real estate sales representative and was awarded for outstanding production.

“I fell in love with EXIT’s culture and family values,” says Findlay.  “The company’s unique business model provides a clear advantage over all other competitors.  When the opportunity arose to acquire the subfranchisor rights to South Western Ontario, I wanted to be a part of the company’s expansion in Canada.”

EXIT Realty is aggressively expanding across the U.S. and Canada with special focus on the Greater Toronto Area, California and Texas and the addition of franchise sales representatives in other key regions.   Spearheading this growth is the company’s veteran CEO, Tami Bonnell.  “Lynn’s understanding of the real estate industry and the South West Ontario area will be instrumental in helping her to find great leaders for EXIT,” said Bonnell.  “We are proud to have her represent us.”

Findlay plans to begin development of the region close to home in Sarnia-Lambton and expand outward.  “We expect to grow to more than 20 franchise locations in the region, home to hundreds of agents,” she says.

Findlay is also an advocate for women, founding the “Just for Laughs” support group more than two decades ago.  She is a supporter of GIDGET (Girls Investing Dollars Get Extraordinary Things), F-Revolution (Fearless, Fabulous, Females) and Sarnia Modern Women, a networking tradeshow co-founded by EXIT Realty Twin Bridges Broker/Owner, Julie Jenkins.
