Chris Leader

Master Trainer

Passionate, funny, humble, entertaining, personable… all of the traits you could possibly want in a trainer! Students rave about how they connect with Chris’s down-to-earth style and they can trust what he teaches because he has truly walked a mile in their shoes.

To call Chris Leader an entrepreneur is an understatement. By the age of 24, Chris was already a successful Realtor® and broker owner. When most people that age were just getting their first job, Chris was busy turning a non-profitable real estate company into the top office in his marketplace. At the same time, he was a partner in a mortgage brokerage and ran it successfully for a number of years.

With these achievements under his belt, Chris took over the management of one of the largest real estate offices in Toronto. His success in that endeavor led him to the realization of his true calling – training. Before the age of 35, Chris turned his successes into a platform for education across the industry and became a top trainer for a major international training company.

Today, Chris is a highly sought-after speaker, trainer and industry consultant. His boundless energy combined with and exemplary business expertise allow him to train some of the industry’s best professionals. The appreciation and success of his students is testament to his quality as a trainer. Chris’s dream was to launch his own training company, so Leader’s Edge Training was born. Using his unique combination of real estate and mortgage expertise, Chris provides state-of-the-art training and consultation services for real estate professionals and managers all over North America.
