The newest president of the B.C. Real Estate Association says he has a vision for how to correct the province’s spiral into a housing crisis.
Realtor Jim Stewart, who sells in Nanaimo, was elected to the position after sitting on the board for several years.
Repairing a fractured relationship between the association and the province is one of his main tasks. The relationship turned sour when the association lost their ability to self-govern and weren’t treated as their own entity, according to Stewart.
“When we lost self-regulation, that was a personal blow to me,” Stewart said. He was the chair of government relationships with the association at the time. “We’re going to work real hard to make sure we can represent the interests of 22,000 realtors throughout the province.”
