Sheldon Johnston

Liv Real Estate
Sheldon’s career in real estate started when he was 15 and worked part time at his family’s real estate company. His plan to go to law school was side-tracked when his dad bet him he couldn’t pass the real estate exam. That was in 1988.

In 1991 he became a broker and took over managing the brokerage which was one of the largest, most successful independent brokerages in the Edmonton market. Since then he joined a franchise, left that franchise and most recently re-branded as Liv Real Estate.

During his years in the business he has been involved in the industry as a board director, RECA Council Member, REIX Advisory board and various other committees and panels. He has been a top producing agent and now focuses on training and mentoring 25 very productive agents, and managing the brokerage.

The boutique brokerage has a dominant online presence in Edmonton; their web site (www.edmontonrealestate.pro) gets over 330,000 user sessions and 4 million pageviews a month. In 2015, the brokerage generated over $200 million in sales, 65% of which came from leads from their web site.

Liv Real Estate is a finalist for an Inman Innovator Award this year.
