Francois Larocque and Yannick Larue, a pair of 21-year-old Montreal residents, are hustling to build a business to get snowbirds into Florida condos. They are buying condos from Floridians and setting up purchases by Quebecers for a fixed fee. The pair usually charges $10,000 for finding the property, deeds, title searches and other paper work. Most of their activity is in Hollywood, which in the French-majority Canadian province is often called Montreal by the sea.
