Howard worked with several brokerages before settling at Johnston & Daniel A Division of Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Brokerage, it was here that he met the late Arthur Bartram and the two decided to start their own brokerage. Arthur had seen a new business model attracting hundreds of Realtors in the US and thought that with some tweaking it could be successful in the Canadian market. This new venture required funding and after a few setbacks in that regard, they were introduced to Ron Peddicord who possessed the business and financial expertise needed to scale up the operation as well as attract investment. Ron soon joined Arthur and Howard as the 3rd co-founder of Right at Home Realty. In May of 2004 Right at Home Realty opened its doors, 16 years later it has grown to become Canada’s largest independent brokerage with well over 5000 members.
