Our Spokesperson

Widely known as a comedian for more than 30 years and for playing the Mr. Latreille character, Réal Béland is also a construction and renovation lover. Réal has also made a name for himself as host of the TV show Réal dans mes rénos, spokesperson for the Centre de rénovation Patrick Morin and the Fiers et compétents organization. Réal was raised around construction and his first summer jobs were as a wool installer and roofer.

He knows and loves the industry, he is close to his audience and loves them, he is authentic and brings a tone and image unlike anything seen in any other home show. Les Salons District Habitat are proud to count on the collaboration of Réal Béland as the new spokesperson for future events.
