About The Speaker:
Inspired by her vision of becoming a successful female entrepreneur, Vivian Risi founded Your Community Realty and grew it into one of Canada’s #1* Real Estate franchise companies.
1974 marked her first year in the business as a real estate salesperson. Persevering through market challenges while raising a young family, Vivian quickly learned that creating success requires hard work, persistence and a customer-focused approach. In sticking to these core values, Vivian was able to successfully help and grow her client base, earning her the status of an award-winning Associate Broker.
Always up for a challenge and in keeping with her passion for the industry, Vivian made the decision to purchase and manage a small brokerage of 18 realtors in Richmond Hill. Leading by example with her people-first approach, Vivian nurtured and grew her brokerage from a small business to a market-dominating powerhouse.
Today, Vivian and her family proudly offer Your Community Realty – 1000+ realtors strong with 10 fully-serviced locations around the GTA.
Vivian’s passion for building stronger communities, coupled with her belief in people helping people, is at the forefront of everything she does. In addition to running her successful brokerage business, she dedicates her time, energy and resources to helping over 30+ charities and causes each year.
