I've had the pleasure of working with Rheal for many years. When I learned he had entered the real estate arena, my initial reaction was that he'll be a natural! He's intelligent, personable, and a go-getter. I'd highly recommend Rheal if you're in the market to buy or a sell your home.
I have had the privilege to work with and report to Rheal for four years in a professional, corporate setting. During that time I was always amazed with his level of enthusiasm, knowledge and superior insight. Rheal always found time to teach and mentor those willing. I credit the majority of my professional success to him.
Rheal worked directly with me, on my team, as president. His friendly interpersonal skills and dedication to high-quality work made him stand out amongst his peers. He deliveries enthusiasm, honesty, understanding, trustworthiness, and initiative. He is respectful, intelligent, detail oriented and cost-conscious. His self-awareness and capacity to grow to meet any challenge provided to him are unquestionable. He respects his coworkers, clients and in return fosters their respect.
Rheal has an easy to talk to style and overall wisdom will greatly benefit his customer base. Rheal cared about who I was, and how I was doing as a person, not just an employee - it was easy to identify his authenticity, which made his company that much more productive and enjoyable.
