Brent Celestine Board Member
Born in Grenada, I migrated to Toronto at the age of 12 yrs. As a young man, I quickly developed an aptitude for sales and customer service, which became my platform to build a successful transportation company. With a strong team and a small fleet of trucks in the GTA, I was able to established great credibility within a growing Consumer Packaged Goods community. With over 20 years of business experience, I decided to leverage these skillsets and have since transitioned into the real estate industry. As a father I aim to teach my boys the importance of the 3 D’s “Dedication, Determination & Discipline “ in achieving their goals! While I enjoy making dreams come true helping my clients buy and sell residential and commercial real estate I do take the time to get a competitive round of golf in, and also give back to the community.

Michael’s passion is to help all businesses around the world no matter how big or small to be able to have a cost effective solution in order to compete equally for business market share.
