Certified Real Estate Broker

Raymond Larivière

As a specialized listing agent and outstanding salesman, Raymond created his own firm to meet the ever-increasing demands and expectations of the real estate market.

All this experience makes him the ideal person to guide and secure clients in the residential and commercial sectors.

To do business with Raymond is to do business with a seasoned professional in the sale, purchase, construction, renovation and estimation of the market value of a property while being accompanied by a very human, caring person with superb communication skills.

Raymond LaRivière makes the difference between a regular broker and an outstanding professional.

If you are looking for professionals in the real estate sector, look no further, you have found them!

Gabriela López Mijares
Executive officer

Gabriela López Mijares

In this multi-cultural real estate team, Gabriela has a multi-faceted and eventful professional background. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Performing Arts and has extensive experience as an actress, writer, producer and radio host in her native Venezuela.

Gabriela has a passion for communication and languages, which is why when she arrived in Montreal, she wanted to perfect her verbal skills and completed her Certificates in English and French at the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM, for short). This passion led her to learn Italian as well. She is therefore fluent in French, English, Italian and Spanish, her native language. In 2004, she decided to dive into the real estate field and as soon as she obtained her Real Estate Broker's Certificate, she started working alongside Raymond Larivière as a business partner.

All of this speaks of a resourceful and creative person, able to step out of her comfort zone and move forward even in uncertain situations.

Gabriela is both an artist and an entrepreneur, forward-thinking and organised, sensitive and strong-willed.

Today, after a 15-year real estate career, she has retired as a broker and joined the administration of Groupe LaRivière full time, where she is the right hand of the agency director. She coordinates the administrative activities, manages the social networks and is responsible for the organization within the office.

Definitely, Gabriela has quite a professional challenge on her hands!
