Ep #116: Real Estate and Politics: Having an Impact with Keith Roy

On the 116th episode of The Richard Robbins Show, I sit down with an RRI icon who is currently expanding his career as a real estate professional to include his candidacy for the Federal Conservative Party of Canada.

Keith Roy is celebrating his 18th successful year in real estate and has always had a passion for change, particularly in politics as a graduate in Political Sciences from the University of Guelph.

As we speak, Keith is well on his way to winning the second-longest riding in Canada. From door knocking, campaigning and fundraising for the West Vancouver Sunshine Coast Sea to Sky Country riding (a section made up of 3 small, yet considerably different, sections of the province), Keith has discovered there are massive similarities in the business of real estate and politics.

In this episode, Keith shares his unfiltered perspective on the current state of politics in Canada and lets listeners know how to grow your business using universal, fundamental practices that will work in any profession.
