The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is thrilled to announce a record-breaking $125,000 raised at the National Sales Conference in Las Vegas! These funds will support violence prevention and education programs across Canada, including those focused on youth, helping boys and girls learn how to develop healthy relationships and build lives free from abuse.
We are incredibly grateful to everyone who took part in conference fundraising activities. Special thanks to:
– The Royal LePage Riders Club who raised over $18,600 at their ‘Ride for Shelter’ that kicked off the conference;
– The Parkes Team of Royal LePage Dynamic Real Estate for their generous donation in honor of each conference-goer who attended the ‘Foodies for Shelter’ tour;
– Louise Sabino of Royal LePage Signature Realty who donated the proceeds from her “Woke Up in Vegas” t-shirts;
– All those who booked Las Vegas events, experiences and airport shuttles through Mitch;
– Each and every donor and bidder in the Shelter auctions. The live auction, overseen by the incomparable Kent Browne of Royal LePage Team Realty, raised nearly $68,000 in just over an hour and the silent auction raised $18,000;
– ‘Heads or Tails for Shelter’ players, our volunteer promoter, Donna Gardiner Thompson of Royal LePage Gardiner Realty, and Rick Preston of Royal LePage Dynamic Real Estate who made a matching gift for each button purchased!
About Royal LePage Shelter Foundation

“Repeat Client - Wade H.
I was incredibly happy with having chose Lorri as my Realtor. From the start of the experience with her I found her to be very helpful, always attentive to the details of what I specified as wants and needs in my new home. Extremely professional in her ability to answer questions and facilitate requests that I had. Lorri was patient and understanding when I was having difficulty deciding on my purchase. Through the whole purchase and sale process Lorri has been there and made it the experience fun, more like a trusted friend that was helping me to find the right home for me.”
“Repeat Client - Andrew & Angela W.
We’ve had the pleasure of working with Lorri a number of times. Lorri is very professional and incredibly dedicated to her work. She is thorough and takes the time to do the groundwork necessary to ensure a successful and satisfactory sale. Lorri continues to meet our real estate needs by answering any questions we have, forwarding potential investment opportunities that we might be interested in, and recommending professional and reliable trades. With her easy-going and down-to-earth personality, Lorri has been a perfect fit for us and we have every confidence that she will represent us well, having seen her hard work in action. Lorri has made the process as stress-free as possible for us!”
“Repeat Client - Jeff & Melissa H.
My husband and I recently bought a home in Saskatoon – we are both new to the city and had a check list of ‘must haves’ for our first home together. Lorri was recommended to us by our real estate agent in Ontario and we were thoroughly impressed. Lorri is always available and working for ‘you’ and seemed to get what we wanted within minutes of meeting. We were so happy with Lorri that she represented us for our sale as well. Thanks Lorri!”
“First Time Buyer - Kris & Cara K.
Buying your first home can be a stressful event. Lorri helped guide us through the process with professionalism and diligence. She took the time to make sure that all of our needs were met and that we were able to find the home we were looking for. I would highly recommend Lorri Walters as a Realtor to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.”
“First Time Buyer - Tyler L. & Katherine K.
Lorri took the time to ask us questions about what were looking for in a home. We were new home buyers, so we appreciated Lorri being honest about every house we looked at. She helped us to point out things that may need repaired within the home, and helped us to consider surrounding amenities to assess future resale. It was clear to us she was helping us find our perfect starter home and not just make a sale. Her integrity, willingness to go the extra mile for us, and her humour were much appreciated!”
“Repeat Client - Lisa G.
Purchasing our new home was an exciting but stressful time. Lorri was such a help and made the process much easier for us. She was always available to answer questions and was committed to ensuring we had the right property at the right price. I would recommend her to anyone needing a Realtor.”
“Buyer - Devon & Kristal H.
Impressed by your professionalism, even from over 1,000 KM away we felt we were in good hands. You accommodated us very well and we appreciated your honesty and felt that you had our priorities first.”
“Repeat Client - Bonnie G.
We recently went through a move and heard of Lorri through our work place. Being so skeptical due to our lack of a realtor back in Winnipeg selling our home, we were very nervous. But the moment we met Lorri, we realized we were in great hands. She has been a moving angel…she helped us through everything, even the most silliest of questions or concerns we had she never hesitated to drop what she was doing to help us out. Even after our possession being in a new city she is still so helpful in whatever questions we have! Like sushi suggestions?? Thank you Lorri!”
“Repeat Client - Murielle & Francois L.
We decided we were going to buy our first home, we weren’t sure where to start! We slowly went to open houses on our own and at one of these, we met Lorri Walters. She was the first Realtor who actually took the time to present herself and offer us help. As Lorri’s clients, we felt blessed to have found a Realtor in which we could trust and also depend on to find what we were looking for in our first house and who could help us better understand the way the market works. Lorri would always work around our busy schedules and was very professional and easy to talk to, she made our first experience of buying a house hassle free! We were so pleased we had her represent the sale of our home as well.”
“Selling – James J.
I recently had Lorri be my Realtor on the sale of my house. Lorri was professional, gave me great advice through the sale of the house and followed up on making sure the process was dealt with in the best manner possible. Her demeanor, thoughtfulness and honesty are appreciated! I would recommend Lorri to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.”
“Buyer – Peter B. & Stefanie P.
Being a military couple, we got posted to Saskatoon for our very first move, with neither of us ever having been here before. Lorri was exceptional! She went above and beyond to ensure everything involved in the process ran according to plan and within the timeline required. This was especially reassuring with us being halfway across the country before the move. We highly recommend her to all future home buyers in the area and will most definitely be going to her when time comes to sell and move again.”
If you’re ready to make that next step, all I ask is that you give me a call and we can sit down and chat about your needs and the best way I can help with your next purchase, sale or future investment. At the end of the day, I am here for you, and I’ll never let you settle for a home that you’re not 100% satisfied with.
