Our Story

TUF Family

We’re a sincere family business with a goal. We believe in treating others the way we want to be treated. We believe in honesty and creating an individual bond with everyone we meet and work with. When we opened the Brokerage, our main focus was to practice what we preach, and according to the people we know and have worked with, we’re on track.

The Urban Farmhouse started with a dream on a napkin. After being together since 1995, married in 2010, and welcoming a daughter in 2012, Rhonda & Crystal Lavoie were ready to set up roots and build their dream home. As the build progressed, the white farmhouse, complete with an indoor pool, became known as The Urban Farmhouse. The build was shared on social media, with many dedicated followers. It was a life-changing experience for the Lavoie family.

Rhonda became a Realtor and Mortgage Broker, and after 20+ years in the corporate world, she took her dream a step forward. The Urban Farmhouse Realty (now with eXp Realty) was created and here we sit today with a thriving business, amazing connections, and dedication to taking the business to the top.

The Lavoie family loves life, and their home and enjoys sharing it all with family and friends. They love to travel and explore new places. And upon entering their home, it’s quick to see that they are animal lovers, sharing their home with a dogs, cats, bearded dragon, green cheeked conure, Hermann’s tortoise, sugar gliders, and a coop full of chickens.

Michelle Brochu

Working with Rhonda to buy a house was amazing! I felt continuously supported throughout the whole process, and I am very happy with the end result. I reached out to Rhonda back in September 2020, when I first moved to Saskatoon, and she was very accommodating to my needs from the first minute we met. She showed me the houses I was interested in, and some others I wasn’t aware of in the same price range and style. After deciding that the time wasn’t right to look for a house then, Rhonda patiently waited for me to get back in touch with her to restart the process. Then in March 2022, I reached out to her, and once again I felt like I was supported immediately. She guided me through what felt like a pretty tough market, and when I finally found the right house, she was incredibly efficient in doing what had to be done to secure it. Thanks to her advice and insight, I ended up getting a much better deal than I would have dared to hope for. In the final days leading up to possession, Rhonda was very helpful in guiding me through all the legal and practical steps that had to be taken to finalise the purchase. Her recommendations for home inspector, lawyer and insurance broker all turned out to be excellent too!
