Amelie Dube is not like other entrepreneurs that I’ve met. Her vivacious personality and curiosity for knowledge are some of her best traits. A marketing genius, branding specialist and bold seller, she is well on her way to amassing tons of success in the real estate game. Age is not a definition of experience, hard work and passion are. She proves this time and time again in her journey to success.
Born on the North Shore of Montreal, she began her real estate career at the age of 22. Yet she has actively been in the industry for over five years, working for one of the biggest teams in Quebec under the ReMax banner. “I was able to surround myself with the best from a young age which as permitted me to be very comfortable with my career today.” Throughout her studies from Collegial to University level, she worked as an assistant for this team. “I did college in Accounting and Management, and then continued during my Marketing Bachelors. [My bachelors] lasted two years, instead of three because I had such good grades so they credited me a year. I was lucky, my journey was definitely not “normal” but definitely challenging. I was 17 when I started in real estate.”
In just three months in her career, she has more experience than existing brokers. With her passion for knowledge came the drive to study for her commercial license, which she will have under her belt by this coming summer.
Did you always know you would end up on real estate?
Yes and no. I always loved to lead and I’ve done many entrepreneur contests in Cégep, but not in real estate so much. My cousin Shawn, who’s also a great friend of mine told me that he remembered when I was a little girl I used to love to play “house” with being a real estate broker. I would bring clients (family members) to my office, and show them various properties in our backyard. Looking back now, I can see that I was definitely passionate about real estate at a young age.
What did you learn from your experience working under a big team?
What clicked for me was working with a super high performance team. It was a team of mostly men, and I learned so much about selling and how to close from them. It definitely gave me the confidence boost I needed to be successful in the game. They would always tell me “don’t let people step on you – always stand your ground” things that I didn’t know how to be before. It definitely shaped me for the better. They were very supportive as well.
What is your next big goal you want to accomplish in the industry?
In the next five years, I definitely want my own team. I want to be the reference for real estate in the Laurentien’s. I would love to have an office in St Sauveur, right next to the ski hills. I would love to have a multi language team of women so we can service all foreigners and buyers from everywhere around the world. The Laurentian attracts many people from outside because of its natural habitat and winter activities so the more languages we speak the better.
Do you see yourself targeting to one specific area?
I believe it’s important in real estate to have your own sector. In the beginning everyone says “I go everywhere” and sometimes you don’t have a choice because you have to make a name for yourself, but my goal is to be in one place ; Up North of Montreal ; Laurentian, Saint-Sauveur, Sainte-Anne-des-Lacs, Morin-Heights, Sainte-Adèle, Piedmont, Ste-Adolphe-d’Howard, L’Estérel.
What inspires you to keep growing?
I have multiple projects I’m working on right now – I have to build my reputation and it is something that I have to work on. We’re putting together a project via mobile app which will be called “Vivez Laurentides” where we put all the local market places, and things like that. What I noticed about Up North is you’re not selling a home, you’re selling a way of living. So we’re definitely excited for this.
I’ve also launched my own magazine, to go with this lifestyle way of living. You can find more information from Vivez Laurentides here : https://ameliedube.ca/fr/ressources/magazines/hiver2021/
How do you find balance?
It’s very easy to forget yourself as a real estate broker. What I do to keep my balance is I always have one moment in the day for me. Usually around 30 minutes. It’s yoga for me, I love it! It’s about a year and a half that I started and I am in love with it. It definitely is hard, my boyfriend too is in real estate so we’re constantly working. It’s definitely the me time that keeps me balanced.
I have a business coach, that I hired as well to keep me on check and be better – she had a very successful career in real estate and she had a burnout, and she always says you have to work really hard on maintaining your balance. Also to never stop dreaming. The day you stop dreaming is when you lose yourself.
