About the Owners
Tania Artenosi -  Rising through the ranks at RBC from humble beginnings as a co-op student in the Personal Service Centre and moving rapidly to Team Leader for the New Mortgage Department, Tania became viewed as a valuable asset to branches and lawyers by her team and management. Recognized for her skill, Tania rose to Senior Team Leader of Business Banking and Investigations, where she honed her skills in implementing processes and controls and perfecting her client services, regulatory and execution diligence, with 12 years of dedicated service to RBC. Since earning her Real Estate License in 2006 and then her Real Estate Broker License in 2013 and becoming the Broker of Record for Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Centre Tania has enjoyed an extensive history of working with countless satisfied clients. To permit the Brokerage to flourish, Tania has focused on building a strong support network of support for her realtors in the brokerage with training and retention strategies. Tania entered into Organized Real Estate in 2014, and in 2019 became the President of the Barrie & District Association of Realtors, progressing to become the 2020-2022 Ontario Real Estate Association Director-at-Large, to ultimately the 2022 President-Elect of the Ontario Real Estate Association. Tania has been instrumental in the growth and success of CBTREC. From its startup roots in 2006 to its present 8 office locations, and 270 Realtors and its award-winning Ultimate Service and Chairman's Circle Company these remarkable achievements are attributed to the passion and dedication of its leadership. Demonstrating an enduring passion for all things Real Estate and leading by example with a fierce commitment to customer excellence, leadership in sales and management, and a deep desire to ensure total success, Tania embraces the opportunity to support the agents at CBTREC, and to grow together to accomplish shared goals. 

Tania has been very active and supportive in her husband Dean’s real estate businesses, beginning in 1999. Dean Artenosi obtained his Real Estate License in 1995 after several years of running his own businesses, starting at 16 years of age. Dean began his real estate career as a buyer agent when buyer agency first began in 1995. In 1999, Dean went on to become the top 1% National Chairman's Club as a sales representative, as well as the #1 sales representative for his brokerage. Throughout his tenure as a realtor, Dean developed buyer programs that were a first when introduced to the industry. He was the first to come out with the concept of buying real estate with no money down and lease-to-own. Dean took advantage of insured financing products available through CMHC, predominantly the 5% program and the Purchase Plus Improvement program (where buyers can include renovation costs in their purchase). Dean has been involved in well over a thousand renovated dwellings throughout the GTA and has housed well over two thousand families with his buyer programs. 
In addition to his renovation program, Dean began assembling properties in inner city locations with a vision of new urbanism in mind. Dean’s renovation business, buyer programs, and redevelopment business revitalized existing dwellings and neighbourhoods as opposed to greenfield development. Dean has been the originator and developer of over 100 million dollars’ worth of development projects: from the land acquisition, change of use, sales, marketing, and financing of each site to giving the keys to the homeowner. Dean was featured in a 3-part mini-series in the Toronto Sun as well as the feature story in Builders Architect Magazine. Dean developed a group of companies that work cohesively together by offering a diversified approach to business in real estate. In 2006, The Real Estate Centre Brokerage was born, with a vision of offering an infrastructure where realtors can succeed in their sales practice while enjoying the benefits of all components in real estate. It's never boring, and certainly owning, renting, renovation developing, selling, listing, buying, financing, investing, etc. makes real estate exciting, creative, and a way of life.  
With The Real Estate Centre's experience, infrastructure, and affiliation with Coldwell Banker (one of the longest-standing names in real estate), Dean and Tania aim to provide their realtors access to information, international exposure, credibility, training tools, systems and experience that are not provided anywhere else. With such incredible support, our realtors can be the best real estate practitioners possible. In 2006, Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Centre was born!
