MEET THE KEY OPERATIONAL CITYSEARCH TEAM
As the broker of Citysearch, Lisa oversees all aspects of the leasing and property management business. Graduating with a chemical engineering degree from McMaster University, she entered the workforce with ESSO Chemicals in Sarnia, Ontario, later being transferred to Calgary with NOVA Chemicals. Like so many new Albertans, Lisa relocated to the province seeking great potential and opportunity. Lisa’s husband, John Hripko, followed Lisa to Calgary and very soon after became a realtor with Royal LePage. Years later, Lisa acquired an established corporate relocation company and founded Citysearch Rental Network in 1998 with the vision to provide the combined bench strength of relocation services and property management to the Calgary marketplace. To further the offerings to clients, Citysearch has since developed a number of strategic alliances with realtors in Calgary including John’s group which operates the ‘RIPCO’ team which ranks in the top 1% with Royal LePage. Lisa’s passion drives the heart of Citysearch, helping clients make informed real estate decisions… this is a driving force behind the company’s impressive track record.
