2013 will be the 35th consecutive year I have been a licensed realtor with the Calgary Real Estate Board. During that time I have been involved with many committees at the Local Board, and the Provincial and National Real Estate Associations. From 1991-1996 I was a Director of the Calgary Real Estate Board and was the President in 1995. In 1996 I became an Honorary Life Member of the Calgary Real Estate Board. From 2003-2005 I was a Governor of the Calgary Real Estate Board Charitable Foundation and was the President in 2004. In 2005 I was awarded the prestigious “TWH Saunders Award” which is for the Realtor of the year. In 2007 I became a council Member of the Real Estate Council of Alberta(RECA). This organization is responsible for the Education, Licensing, Regulating and Disciplining of all Real Estate, Mortgage, Property Management and Appraiser licensees in the Province. During 2012, I was the Chairman of RECA. From a personal biographical perspective, I have been married to my wife for 45 years, we have 3 children and 3 grandchildren.
