VIMA was founded in 2020 by Franco Maione. Franco has long been a serial entrepreneur, owning and operating two restaurants as well as a large nightclub/concert venue, prior to transitioning into real estate. His people-focused experience in the hospitality industry informed the way he approaches real estate, resulting in a business philosophy that encourages being kind; making mistakes; consistently improving; and focusing on the things that matter most for growth.
Franco led a team at RE/MAX, where he was ranked within the Top 100 Team Leaders in Canada in 2017, 2018, and 2019, before starting the VIMA team in 2020. In addition to successful production, the VIMA team is focused on the mentorship of its members. Franco likens building a real estate team to growing a family, and he’s proud to continue his family’s success with Real.

"VIMA is the place to be if you want to kill it even for a new agent. We have a business template and provide tools that are modern and on the cutting edge but the team has a family feel and the integrity and the trust and that is what separates us."
