Ross has been involved in the Edmonton real estate industry for over 40 years. After a number of years in the residential market, Ross opened his own company, growing to over 50 agents and staff, working on residential, commercial and property management accounts. In 1988, Ross began to focus solely on the commercial market under Lizotte and Associates Real Estate Inc., going on his own for the first 16 years.
In addition to real estate, Ross has spent many years giving his time and efforts to the non-profit sector. In the 1990’s, Ross played an important role with the revitalization of Edmonton’s downtown district through various projects with the EDDC and the Downtown Business Association. He played a vital part in establishing ArtsHab – a live/work project for artists that is still in existence in the downtown core. As well, Ross has spent many years volunteering in the non-profit sector, including over 14 years on the Board of E4C , sitting on the Edmonton Community Foundation Investment Committee (and continues to advise them on various real estate issues), and on the Board of Edmonton Catholic Cemeteries. His community efforts earned him the 2004 Integrity award from Rotary Club of Edmonton West.
