About us and our company

The vision

Back in 2013, the company’s founder and CEO Theofanis Roussas was studying some astronomical maps for Saturday’s outing on the east side of Penteli, wanting to note the stars he would photograph that night with his amateur telescope. But instead of looking at the maps of the northern hemisphere, he accidentally opened the map of the southern hemisphere. His eye fell on the constellation of Tropis (which looks like a ship) where the (α) alpha Carina, Canopus star, ruled.

The vision

Back in 2013, the company’s founder and CEO Theofanis Roussas was studying some astronomical maps for Saturday’s outing on the east side of Penteli, wanting to note the stars he would photograph that night with his amateur telescope. But instead of looking at the maps of the northern hemisphere, he accidentally opened the map of the southern hemisphere. His eye fell on the constellation of Tropis (which looks like a ship) where the (α) alpha Carina, Canopus star, ruled.

Ποιοί είμαστε - Το Όραμα - Κάνωπος - Canopus

It made a big impression on him, so he started looking for it a little more, as he was not concerned with the stars and constellations that were not visible in the latitude of Athens.

He learned that Canopus is about 300 light years from Earth and is a white supergiant, 10.000 times brighter and 250.000 times larger in volume than our Sun. Its brightness and position in the celestial sphere make it the reference point used by many modern spacecraft and satellites to navigate through the vastness of space.

After reading some mythology, he learned that Canopus was the navigator of King Menelaus of Sparta, when the latter was on his way to the Trojan War with his 60 ships.

That’s it… The business dream now has a name : Canopus.

So, Canopus embodies the vision for the creation of a company that would be, in the future, the model and the reference point to which everyone would aim to orient themselves correctly and the navigator who would guide, with safety and confidence, anyone who wanted to reach a difficult and distant destination and achieve their goals.

Our Story

Canopus P.C. was founded in 2013 as a single person private company (S.M.P.C.) by Theofanis Roussas, and with the entry of Fotini Papachatzi into the company, it quickly expanded into real estate services, property management and insurance, in order to fully meet the needs of our ever-growing and demanding clientele.

This is how we created our first brand name, “CANOPUS BROKERS”, with which we started to operate mainly in the Real Estate sector. As our clients started to ask more and more for our excellent services, we decided to grow even more and in June 2020 we became part of the global RE/MAX family with the brand “RE/MAX Canopus”. This move strengthened us and gave us access to tools and expertise that made us even better in the demanding Real Estate industry and also the ability to serve clients not only throughout Greece, but also around the world. At the same time, we created the right environment to attract the best Real Estate Agents and provide them with everything they need to go from being the best to becoming the best. Our partnership with RE/MAX ended in September 2023.

After that we created our new project with the brand name “YOUR HOME SOLD by CANOPUS BROKERS™”, in order to enter the market of the most expensive and luxurious properties, but also to implement a fresh and unique idea in the Greek Real Estate market, where our professional Agents will gain access to unique service packages that will make them top of the line and far away from the “cheap competition”, but also for our exceptional clients who will be able to enjoy exclusive, comprehensive and high quality services that no one else provides in Greece.

Since its establishment until today Canopus P.C. has been a healthy and profitable company, a benchmark and navigator in the sectors in which it operates, with the largest percentage of its profits today coming from real estate and related services.

Thanks to her talent in sales, she quickly built up a large portfolio and clientele and worked with the biggest companies in the field, winning major awards and always being among the top producers.

TESTIMONIALS

I have only good things to say about this real estate agency in Galatsi. I had an apartment unsold for a year and no real estate agent had not been seriously involved because I was living in it. I assigned it to the guys, in 10 days they had brought 4 candidates and one finally bought it. Thank you so much!

...there's no way I wanted to give an exclusive assignment. An agent call me every 15 days asking me how the sale of my studio apartment was going. It was semi-basement and I had no calls even though I had placed an ad myself. I finally gave him a 3 month contract and in 2 months he sold it. I highly recommend him...

...if it wasn't Fotini, there was no way I could have completed the sale in the time I wanted. They immediately discovered a problem in the land registry and introduced me to the office lawyer and she corrected it within 20 days. The contracts were done immediately afterwards so I was able to buy the other one in time.
