New Franchise: CENTURY 21 Northwest Realty Opens in Kitimat, BC

Kitimat– Annelise Miller and Hayley Vilness are new franchisees, based out of Kitimat, British Columbia. They have been in the real estate industry for about six years and saw the need for competition in their community. They had a five year goal to own their own brokerage, and decided mid-2020 that it was time to start making that dream a reality. While researching their options, they were drawn to CENTURY 21 Canada.

“The rebranding originally caught my eye,” says Miller. “But the more I learned about the company and what they offered to both agents and franchisees, I knew that we couldn’t do this on our own and we’d be so much more powerful with the brand behind us.”

C21 Northwest Realty is opening its doors with six agents in the office. The duo says their goal is to continue to grow while fostering a supportive and successful group within their brokerage.

CENTURY 21 Canada Executive Vice President Brian Rushton says the two owners bring great energy to their business. “We’re always excited to have younger franchisees who will be with the industry for decades to come. Annelise and Hayley were enthusiastic from the very beginning and we look forward to supporting their dream of owning their own business.”

Miller says they are working to introduce the CENTURY 21 name to Kitimat and will continue their launch through 2021. The group of REALTORS® already have a strong reputation in the Kitimat area and look forward to how CENTURY 21 will enhance their ability to deliver the gold standard to clients.
