“Working in organized real estate has always been a rewarding experience,” said Trites. “In 2018, there was a lot of focus on helping realtors adapt to change. In 2019, I look forward to helping shift that perspective and working with BCREA and the province’s 11 member boards to lead change.”

Also elected to BCREA’s board of directors are president-elect Anthony Bastiaanssen, the former president of the Okanagan Mainland Real Estate Board; former president James Palanio of Royal LePage Penticton; and BCREA CEO Darlene Hyde.

BCREA also brings in new realtor directors Gian-Piero Furfaro (Victoria) and Janice Stromar (Vancouver Island). Returning realtor directors include Ray Harris (Port Coquitlam), Dan Morrison (Vancouver), Cory Raven (Vancouver) and Katherine Rutherford (Kamloops).
