Meet the Team


Herbert Ratsch

Herbie began his journey as an integral part of the management team at Starters Sports Canada. He worked closely with the NFL, MLB, NHL and CFL. He then began to create his vast network of business contacts.


For the past 20 years, Herbie has been immersed in the luxury real estate world. He began as Vice President of the Reservation Centre, Director of Resort Real Estate Sales and Director of Tourist Rentals at Mont-Tremblant Intrawest.


He was one of the first brokers to join the Quebec division of Sotheby’s International Real Estate brokerage service and led the launch of the Sotheby’s office in Mont-Tremblant.


As a Sotheby’s International Chartered Real Estate Broker, Herbie has contributed to a series of record sales in Canada, including an estate of over 65,000 acres in the wild and the historic Château Montebello.


In 2020, he joined forces with two long-standing partners to found the real estate development consulting firm REL Realty Advisors.


Herbie represents the most demanding investors and homeowners in the Laurentians and Montreal, but his network of clients extends across Canada.


His motto is “work hard and live life to the fullest.”


Herbie spends his weeks in Montreal and weekends with his family in Mont-Tremblant. He enjoys skiing, golfing, water skiing, canoeing and kayaking and every year he drives his car at the Porsche Club of North America event at Circuit Mont-Tremblant.
