Jacinthe Dubé is a distinguished Real Estate Broker based in Sherbrooke, Québec. With over thirty-five years of experience, Jacinthe is a leading real estate professional in the Eastern Townships and Sherbrooke, known for her perseverance and innovation, and focusing on the sales and purchases of country homes and lakefront properties. She currently works with Royal Lepage where she serves clients throughout the entire Eastern Townships and Sherbrooke, with property listings in towns such as Saint-Denis-de-Brompton, Lac Memphrémagog, Mont-Bellevue, and Waterville, among many others.
Though today she is regarded as one of the top real estate professionals in Québec, Jacinthe’s path to get to where she is today was a circuitous one. Before going into the real estate industry, she was a renowned Canadian surfer, even having competed in the 1979 Surfing World Championships. Looking back, she recalls deciding to make the transition:
When I came back in 1979 from the Surfing World Championships I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I met a real estate broker on the plane who inspired me, and my father worked in construction, so I always liked houses. I started to study for my license, and I did my course in one and a half months.
After working for five years as a real estate agent, Jacinthe obtained her broker’s license and became the first vendor in Canada for the Permanent Canada Trust. She took to the position quickly and was soon selling almost 200 houses per year as Canada’s top real estate salesperson for five consecutive years. In 1991 she left her position with the Permanent to found le Groupe Immobilier Jacinthe Dubé. Six years later she acquired the first franchise under the Royal Lepage banner where she remains today as their number one agent.
Above all else, Jacinthe’s success is rooted in her dedication to helping her clients achieve their real estate dreams. She knows that buying and selling property can be one of the largest and most emotional transactions a person will make in their lives and as such, she is committed to making sure her clients have as much information as possible with innovative and highly personalized support. She sees every client, property, and transaction as unique and she treats it as such throughout the entire process by making herself available to her clients 24/7.
Beyond her commitment to client service, Jacinthe is set apart by her intimate knowledge of her region. As a native of the Eastern Townships, Jacinthe has first-hand experience with the market, giving her an excellent ability to match buyers with the perfect neighborhood to match their personality and specific needs, taking into account things such as proximity to schools. Today, her in-depth knowledge of the Eastern Townships real estate market, her network of professional partners carefully selected for their excellence, and her team of competent employees and assistants who work fearlessly with state-of-the-art technology have helped Jacinthe build a flawless reputation. With more than 5,000 successful transactions to her name, she is a highly sought-after real estate professional in and around the Eastern Townships and Sherbrooke.
With a constructor for a father, Jacinthe has a great familiarity with construction, benefiting clients looking to build new homes, as well as a natural entrepreneurial spirit that serves her well in the constantly-evolving real estate industry. Outside of her expertise buying and selling homes, she is very skillful at finding clients the perfect plot of land in the Eastern Townships to build and connecting them with reliable constructors. Situated in the Southeast region of Québec, bordering the United States, the Eastern Townships is home to hundreds of lakes, making lakefront property one of Jacinthe’s specialties. Visitors and residents can also find plenty of hiking, cycling, fishing, golf, snowshoeing, and skiing.
