RealSTUDIO® carved out our niche by focusing on a segment that other professional creative companies often overlook. While many design studios chase larger, more lucrative accounts, RealSTUDIO® offer a custom branding design service for REALTORS® which includes everything from logo design to websites and marketing – even SEO. We have a process to do it affordably without compromising quality.

Our Story

Behind RealSTUDIO® is graphic designer and artist Michelle Vella who founded the business in 2005. Starting as a portrait photography studio for Real Estate agents in Vancouver BC, it soon transitioned into a branding and design business.

“Branding Realtors® was a new concept back then and Vancouver agents were quickly embracing it so I saw an opportunity to offer much needed services.” says Vella and with that her branding and design business began.

Paul McEwan, another graphic artist with education in real estate marketing and business planning met Michelle through Ray Geisbretch, the sales person at myRealPage.com, shortly after starting her business. Paul had been a marketing manager at RE/MAX at this time, helping agents brand and customize their myRealPage websites. A networking tribe was formed.

Paul and Michelle have worked together branding real estate agents as creative partners. Paul became the creative director in December 2015 and has led RealSTUDIO® into becoming a full service creative house today.
