Background & Experience
Richard Sauvé has specialized in the sectors of retail trade, redevelopment and real estate investment brokerage in Quebec since 1990.
Mr. Sauvé obtained his Bachelor’s degree in business administration with a specialty in finance from UQAM in 1980. He successfully completed the Canadian Securities Course and the Derivatives Course of the Canadian Securities Institute, before joining McLeod Young Weir (now Scotia McLeod) in 1983. In 1989, he was selected to attend a specialized training program at the Kellogg School of Management in Chicago.
Mr. Sauvé began his career in real estate as a mortgage broker. He then helped create an auction service for industrial and commercial properties. His introduction to the retail trade was the development of the Mail Boxes Etc. banner (now The UPS Store) as Development Director for Quebec.
In 1999, Mr. Sauvé started his own real estate firm, Séquoia Immobilia Inc. His institutional investment expertise allowed him to obtain major accounts such as school boards, the City of Montréal, and retail companies such as Pizza Hut, Kentucky Fried Chicken and A&W, Bétonel, as well as several large pharmacy chains. He also developed a competitive bidding system that enabled him market fifteen educational institutions (schools and properties).
In January 2006, he joined NAI Commercial to offer his clients greater international visibility.
In 2008, Mr. Sauvé became part of the commercial real estate elite by obtaining the SIOR designation. He is the only real estate broker at NAI Commercial – Quebec to be a member of the select SIOR club (www.sior.com), the most prestigious professional commercial and industrial real estate association in the world. SIOR has members in 28 countries and includes some 3,000 certified agents worldwide, about 100 in Canada and 16 in Quebec. It is also at that time that his daughter, Anne-Marie Sauvé, decided to join him to work as a team.
