178. Phil Moore, RE/MAX Central
It’s been almost 30 years since Phil Moore left his career as a Vancouver police officer to become a Realtor. The two jobs seem radically different, but Moore says the negotiating and mediating skills he learned as a cop have allowed him to excel in sales. In addition to his annual appearance among the top 1% of Greater Vancouver agents, Moore is also the incoming president of the area’s real estate board, where he is responsible for leading more than 14,000 Realtors and enhancing the industry’s image.
