"June 1990 seems like yesterday. That was when I left a major Canadian Bank after an 18 ½ year career and joined you, Al, in a new Real Estate company called “Partners”. As scary as that was at the start of a Recession, I can honestly say I’ve never looked back. You’ve been there for me, taught, supported and encouraged me in my profession all these years and there are no words that can express my appreciation and thanks. Joining Partners was the smartest move I’ve made in my life. You’re the best!"- Marty Burke, Sales Representative
"Dear Al:- Melany Moss
It's hard to believe that 10+ years has passed since I joined Partners. It was the hardest decision that I had to make but definitely the best.
You have always been there to support me business-wise and also with personal challenges that have come up over the years and I can't thank you enough. I look forward to another 10+ years together."
"In 2008 I decided to search for a Brokerage that would help me to bring my business to the next level. I spoke to many Brokers only to realize that their primary goal was to “sign me as an Agent to their Brokerage”. I was given many empty promises. In December of that year I interviewed with Royal LePage Partners and had many questions all of which were answered to my satisfaction.- Collette Zimmerman
In January, 2009 (after 12 years in the business) I joined Royal LePage Partners and was provided with all the help I needed to get my business set up under the new Brokerage. Al Kroch provided me with hands on assistance, words of encouragement and great coaching. Since joining Royal LePage Partners all my expectations have been met and in most cases have been exceeded. Al provided me with the tools and support to increase my business.
It is a work in progress. However, I highly recommend Royal LePage Partners to new Agents looking for “a start in the right direction” and also experienced Agents wanting to grow their business and provide better service to their clients and themselves.
Thank you Al for a great 2009 and for 2010 which is right on track to meeting my goals."
"I've been a real estate Agent since October 1991. When I was first looking to join a brokerage I was told by agents and brokerages alike: "you need to join "PARTNERS". Well I listened, and guess what? I am still with Al at Royal LePage Partners after almost 20 years. Al Kroch's innovative marketing programs have always been ahead of the times, and his passion in assuring the success of his Agents is remarkable.- Peter Kunz
Al really shows that he cares about you and your success. Why go anywhere else, when can be a "Partner" at Royal LePage Partners."
"I was licensed over 25 years ago. Had it not been for Al Kroch, I would not have had a successful career in real estate all these years. As a matter of fact, I would have quit real estate after a year of running around and getting no-where. He alone was responsible for transforming me into a good and lasting agent."- Veronika Zyss
"Joining Royal LePage Partners in 2004 was the perfect choice. Al is always available for guidance and support, which has greatly added to my success in Real Estate. He is very well known as an excellent “trainer” and anyone either new to the profession or looking to boost their career to the next level should consider joining Partners. It was my best move!"- Marci Koifman
"Al,- Amelia Ipp
With my 24 years of Real Estate experience - if anyone were to ask me about Real Estate training I would have to say that you are the BEST!! You are always available to listen and give your opinion and your support and advice, to me personally over the past 10 years ~ as a member of your Partners Family, has been invaluable! It would be my pleasure to answer any questions pertaining to Al and the value of working for Royal LePage Partners Realty Inc., Brokerage please feel free to email or call me - email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, 416 990-3236."
"Dear Al,- Steve Gerlock
Thank you for the tremendous support you have shown me over the last 29 years. I could not do what I have done without you. There are times in this business when we at times fall (thank goodness not often) and we need to be put back together again. When this does happen, it’s good to know you are there and have my back. It’s off to get a listing now. Do you want to come?"
"Dear Al,- Vicky Cioci
The results show that being at Partners has maximized my success through presenting strong opportunities to close each sale, whether it is a listing or offer presentation. Your training, tools, programs, systems and strategies have allowed me to stand apart from my competition and to create a WOW factor.
I really appreciate the positive working environment you have created to help your agents through both the positive and perhaps, more importantly, the challenging moments of real estate sales. That is when your value has been at its peak.
I would welcome the opportunity to speak with any real estate salesperson that is thinking of making a change to Partners to share my experience.
"Partners offers the ideal base for agents in today's market.- Malcolm Austin
Al has developed a comprehensive marketing plan, just like a menu at a restaurant, it is up to each agent to choose the tools they find appropriate for the situation at hand.
One or the other is always available to answer questions, regardless of how major, or trivial and I highly recommend, take a look at the "Partners program" to succeed in this industry."
"As a Real Estate Broker with over 25 years in our business I have had an excellent ‘total office experience’ at Partners.- Leonard Atkin
I met Alan Kroch and found him to be very helpful with what I wanted to accomplish. What also impressed was/is the warm and efficient staff starting with administration and continuing on with the Agents who said “anything that I can help you with at any time, just ask”. That kind of an attitude makes for a great office where you ‘want’ to work.
It is a real pleasure to be able to work with Royal LePage Partners Realty."
"Returning to Toronto after many years in the US, I met Vicky and quickly became a buyer/client because of her confidence and persistence in finding the right property for me even before it came on the market! After obtaining my license, meeting other Brokers, and then spending time with Al and Vicky, I could not see myself anywhere other than at Partners. They gave me confidence that I would get not only the technical support needed to properly service my clients but the coaching and mentoring critical to growing my new business.- Jill Davies
Al’s dedication to the Tuesday morning meetings is commendable. He has an amazing ability to pin point the needs of today’s agents in the always changing real estate market and is relentless in his efforts to provide us with the understanding and tools necessary to give us a competitive edge.
It takes a great deal of commitment to be successful in real estate business today but there’s no question that Partners will support those that truly give it their best.
"Al and Vicky, January 2015- Debbie Au-Yeung
I wanted to thank you in all sincerity for all your countless moments of support for me from the first e-mail that I sent to you when I was considering a career in residential real estate in Toronto.
Vicky, your presence has made a huge difference in the office over the past 2 years. The energy and dynamics have changed and I can see that the office has become an exciting place to work. I enjoy the training and even the challenges that Al has placed me in during the Tuesday meetings.
I really appreciate the guidance you have given me through the proper procedures in the selling and buying process to ensure that all steps are carried out and well documented/legally secure for my clients and my business. I am certain that not all brokerages even provide this service. However, you and Al go beyond the typical scope of a brokerage by coaching and mentoring which requires so much more effort. Reading the pulse of the changes in our industry and reacting positively with a new outlook for each scenario can make such a difference and possibly place one ahead of the game.
I truly appreciate the fact that I have 2 dedicated and experienced brokers watching my back.
