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.
