Kay often stated that “teams, computers, advertising, statistical review, even our sales volume, they were the results of my son, Ross….his ability to analyze and identify trends may be rooted in the generational knowledge he was given but how he takes grassroots understandings and then accurately tells me which homes on which streets will be listed in the next month, I can't answer ”.
Ross is currently Canada's only authority on Real Estate Transactional Data (RETD) in Canada and through this expertise and the relationships he has built with 100's of licensed to trade practitioners, is the only person in Canada to have reviewed and analyzed millions of real estate trades from 1990 onward. His understanding of the power held within RETD, combined with a personal involvement of over 3000 real estate transactions opened opportunities for insight that are unique in North America today. 
Ross has appeared on television and has been interviewed by leading real estate publications. His programs have won international acclaim and awards, proving his worth to his clients. His experience in the fields of Corporate Governance, Copyright and trademark law has been used to the benefit of the individual and both for-profit and not-for-profit corporations.
