Broker Volney Ellis sold my house in 9 days for the maximum price. The moment we decided to sell he brought in photographer and had the house on the market in 2 days. He worked tirelessly communicating to buyers and us regarding property until sold. Very professional and knowledgeable about the real estate market. I recommend him highly to sell any property given.

Volney, you did it again! We are still in shock at the huge success we’ve had working with you to sell our property. We trusted you every step of the way and you did not let us down. You took such great pride in everything you did - from helping us to properly stage the place, your marketing materials, the way you managed the multiple offers that were coming in…all to ensure we got the best price we could for our property. The results far exceeded our expectations and we cannot thank you enough. To anyone reading this review, we promise you will not regret working with Volney. He is truly one of a kind!

We've had the opportunity to work with Volney in selling two of our properties. Volney wasted no time assisting us getting our homes up and ready for sale. The professionalism exhibited in preparing and marketing both of our homes was nothing short of remarkable. He gets results VERY FAST. We sold one property within 24 hours and the other in less than 14 days. I can't stress enough how quickly he gets things done while still prioritizing the client's needs above all. Thank you so much Volney for providing an outstanding service! We look forward to working with you again. We would HIGHLY recommend Volney to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

We bought our house from Volney who came as a saviour during our times of Home buying stress. Truly professional and highly trustworthy. Stays with you for the stages of the house buying process and provides great guidance. The vacation part of their service is outstanding. We just got back from the 7n/8d all inclusive Jamacian vacation at the Luxury Bahia Principe Resort and it was our best vacation ever - Fully Paid by Volney’s company. We would always stay with Volney and highly recommend him to all.

It has been a pleasure working with Volney to purchase our FIRST home. We were lost and confused about the whole process and Volney sat with us for almost 3 hours walking us through a presentation on the process and answering all of our questions. He was very professional and thorough at every showing and always made us feel like he had our best interest at heart. We would highly recommend Volney to anyone and we will certainly be working with him again someday, whether to sell our home or purchase another. Volney, thank you for the outstanding service! - Keron & Teneisha

Vacation Brokerage is a fantastic real estate company that I highly recommend to anyone either purchasing or selling their property! Our agent Volney Ellis demonstrated such great professionalism and attention to detail during our home buying process -- in fact, we found our first home and closed on the property within 10 days! It was an extreme pleasure working with Volney from start to finish. My husband and I were also given a free, all inclusive 5 Star vacation to Costa Rica shortly after closing!!! -- an incredible dream come true!!! We highly recommend Vacation Brokers to all those looking to buy and/or sell their property -- you should't work with anyone else.

We have been using Volney as our realtor since 2006. He is very professional and thorough which is why we have used him for several real estate transactions over the years. In 2016 my family and I qualified for the vacation reward program offered by Vacation Rewards Real Estate Brokerage (VRREB). Once we picked the destination, the booking and arrangements were handled by VRREB. The family trip to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic at the RIU Resort was great. The kids loved it and keep asking to go back. All in all, we are pleased with our vacation and our experiences with Volney over the years. We will continue to highly recommend him to our family and friends.

How does your card stick to my windshield at Jerkfest. Come back and now it is adheared to the glass. Your PR is horrible, printed cards the same & I would never trust someone so careless. If I could post the pix I would. Absolute worst ending to a great day of food and friends, you truly ruined it. Shame
Here are some of our most frequently asked questions. Please contact us for additional details.

Our mission is to make you a home owner in 1-3 years and our process is divided into 4 steps.



Click the “get started” button and answer a few simple questions to see if you qualify for our rent to own solution in minutes. If you don’t qualify, no stress! We have 2 other programs that we can offer you later.

To qualify you must:

  1. Be a Canadian citizen or Permanent resident
  2. Have plans to live in the home and use the home as your primary residence
  3. Have a combined family income of CAN $70,000 or more
  4. Be employed or own your own business
  5. Have 4% of your dream home’s purchase price in your bank account or in an RRSP account 
  6. Be looking for a home that’s worth NO MORE than CAN $700,000

NB: If you’re looking for a home between $700,000 – $2.5 M, then our downpayment assistance solution may be a better option for you. Follow the appropriate link to learn more.



Once we’ve verified that you’ve met all the conditions in step 1 above you must:

  1. Sign a Buyer Agency Agreement to give us permission to move forward with your application and find you a home within your approved price range. 
  2. Speak to one of our finance representatives to get a breakdown of all the costs involved in our program and provide proof of income, employment status, business income etc.
  3. Speak to one of our Mortgage Brokers and obtain your mortgage approval (Don’t worry we will help you to get the approval) 


Once you get your mortgage approval then its time to go house hunting for the perfect home. We will assign you to an experienced Realtor who will book showings on all the homes you like, so you can make your selection. Once you find your dream home, we will alert a member of our team who will make an offer and purchase the home for you.



Once a member of our team buys the home you require, simply sign the rental agreement and move in.

Your monthly rent payment will include a mandatory amount that goes towards savings so that when the time comes for you to buy, you will have a large amount to assist with your downpayment.

In addition, we will provide you with free credit counselling and financial guidance every month, so that you are fully prepared to take ownership when the time comes. 

After we’ve verified that our rent to own solution is a good fit for you, our next step is to book a call with one of our program managers who will:

  1. Walk you through the program step by step
  2. Verify your income and employment status
  3. Breakdown all the costs involved in the program
  4. Answer any additional questions you may have including purchase option, mandatory savings, terms of the rent to own contract etc. 

Please note we will NOT allow you to proceed to the next steps, unless we both agree that we’re a good fit for each other.

All you are required to contribute towards the purchase are:

  1. A total deposit of only 4% of the purchase price of your home
  2. A home inspection fee of approximately $500

In short you are expected to contribute 4% downpayment and approximately $500 in closing costs.

Don’t worry, your question will be addressed once we book your call with one of our program representatives.
