The #1 Real Estate agent in Quebec, Francois Mackay is generating leads using FREE classified ads. Starting in the business at age 21, Francois has always had the privilege of looking up to his mom, who was also in the business. His first year in Real Estate was a great one. Francois closed 50 transactions, but this took a huge toll on  in his personal life because he was forced to work 12 hour days 7-days a week. In order to move to the next level, Mackay put together a strong team of support staff which enabled him to use his time more efficiently and effectively, which in turn catapulted him to the top of the Canadian Real Estate charts closing over 400 transactions last year.
