Area Real Estate Executive Receives National Health Care Recognition


Luci Rizzo of Century 21 Percy Fulton Ltd. recognized for excellence in service to area medical professionals.


Toronto, Ontario (October 17, 2012) – According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are approximately 700,000 physicians in the United States who work in excess of 60 hours per week. In Canada although the number of physicians are not quite as vast in numbers, the number of hours they dedicate to their practice of medicine is definitely the same. While their earning potential is the highest among any profession in the US and Canada, a blizzard of government regulations and a host of clinical and economic issues leave little time for a doctor to manage their professional and personal lives.


In response, an elite group of professionals is emerging as specialists to the medical community.  In recognition of her work with area health care executives and physicians, Luci Rizzo of Century 21 Percy Fulton Ltd. has been named an MD Preferred Affiliated Real Estate Professional.  Each year, US Medical Specialties, Inc., a national medical consulting firm, recognizes excellence in service to the medical community in a number of disciplines including real estate, insurance, accounting, banking, financial and legal services. The company is now expanding into Canada.  The goals of the MD Preferred Program for Real Estate include identifying, acknowledging and promoting agents who provide service excellence to the medical community. 


The program provides medical professionals with an online resource center where they can find profiles and contact information of “doctor friendly” professionals who are committed to providing a quality service experience.  “Doctors are very busy professionals,” observed Michael O’Malley, Project Manager of MD Preferred Services.  “When it comes to finding a real estate/relocation agent that specializes in serving physicians, they appreciate an organization that has done the research for them and has pulled a team together to make their lives easier.  Our online resource center is the place where their search can begin and end.”


Every MD Preferred real estate agent is selected for their commitment to serving the healthcare industry.  They often work in close concert with other community based MD Preferred professionals helping area medical providers attract and retain talented physicians.     

MD Preferred agents are uniquely qualified to act as recruiting partners to area practice managers and hospital administrators.  As partners they can tell the community story while the medical recruiter tells the clinical story.  Their knowledge of the area and understanding of the special needs of physicians and their families saves everyone time and resources.     


“We are proud of the recognition we have received.  In an environment of critical physician shortage, we understand that most physicians considering a career in our community will make their decision based primarily on life style issues,” Ms. Rizzo observed.  “The last thing we want to have happen is for that prospective physician to go elsewhere because the local support services he or she needed were either not available, were unreliable or did not meet the expectations of the physician. We are always ready to meet with area physician groups to demonstrate how high net worth, high income professionals can access incredibly attractive financing and take advantage of once in a life time values.  In our marketplace of Toronto the endless opportunities for investment real estate can be discussed either one on one or in MD group seminars targeted to give busy physicians the information they require to make sound investment decisions.”  It is clear that relocation needs of the national or international physicians,  and their investment needs can be handled by this well trained group of agents.
