A Broker of Record with Town or Country Real Estate (Halton) Ltd., Dennis has been a member of OMDREB for ten years. He is a graduate of McMaster University, with an Honours degree in Business. Dennis brings extensive experience as a small business owner.

Dennis is an experienced Director, passionate about improving the value of the Board to its Membership. Having attended numerous industry meetings, workshops and conferences, Dennis has gained valuable insight into the importance of networking and collaborating in his current role. He has experienced the benefits of working with other Boards, our governing Associations and our various service providers, on issues such as shared MLS data. An issue at the forefront of every REALTOR’S® mind, he will continue the work already started by OMDREB on increasing the data sharing with our surrounding boards in hopes to eliminate the need for multiple Board memberships in the future.

He has worked and contributed to many OMDREB committees, Chaired Community Initiatives, Finance Committee, and Vision Task Force. Dennis has co-chaired the Milton Initiatives Committee where he contributed to the creation of the Milton Board office, the development and implementation of the Made in Milton website and awareness campaign. As an engaged member of the Milton community, Dennis is an advocate for the success of local Milton REALTORS® in this rapidly growing market and looks forward to continuing to volunteer his time and skills to help OMDREB best serve its Membership.
