Both bobsled and real estate "are competitive but require co-operation with your peers to do well," says Lyndon Rush

Lyndon Rush, a commercial sales rep with Royal LePage in Red Deer, Alta., is competing with the  four-man and two-man Canadian Olympic 2010 bobsleigh teams competing at the Whistler Sliding Centre. Rush, along with Lascelles Brown, finished 15th in the two-man bobsleigh and will be joined by Chris LeBihan and David Bissett to compete in the four-man bobsleigh later this week.

Rush’s father Jerry Rush is also with Royal LePage in Red Deer.

“LD (as he is called by his family) is fortunate to be in commercial real estate where he has evenings and weekends off and it is easier to schedule regular training times,” says Jerry Rush. “What other career could you have that would allow you such flexibility?”

Royal LePage is one of the bobsled sponsors.

There are some similarities between being a top seller and being part of Canada’s winning bobsledding team. The backbone of each profession lies with teamwork.

“Both are competitive but require co-operation with your peers to do well,” says Lyndon Rush. “In bobsledding, you need to network with the other teams to gain knowledge about the tracks and acquire new and better equipment. Similarly as a Realtor, you’re competing for customers but need to co-operate in order to serve those customers the best.”

Lyndon played football for five years at the University of Saskatchewan before receiving a call from Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton urging him to give the sport of bobsled a try. He has developed into one of the top pilots in Canada while specializing in commercial real estate for Royal LePage’s Team Rush. He is married and has two daughters, Olivia and Amelia.

“It’s an honour for Royal LePage to support Lyndon, and alongside Canadians everywhere, we are proud of his wins for Canada at the World Cup events,” says Phil Soper, president and CEO of Royal LePage. “We are very excited for him and definitely consider ourselves part of Team Rush.”

Another sales rep, Bret Bresciani of Re/Max House of Real Estate in Calgary, was part of Canada’s 2009-10 World Cup bobsled team, but he did not qualify for the Olympics.
