2020 BOARD OF DIRECTORS

President

We have enjoyed excellent leadership over the many decades at The Oakville, Milton and District Real Estate Board with a great dedicated staff.

With 47 years of real estate, sales and management experience, an OMDREB Member of 31 years, OMDREB Past President (1993), former OMDREB Board Committee Member (Finance Chair 1992, Building 1990, 1993), a collaborative spirit, an innovative problem solver, a good listener, and having recently completed the OREA Leadership Training series 100, 200 , 300 and 301, I feel prepared and ready with all of the attributes for organized REALTOR life.

With extensive experience in dealing with our current real estate industry challenges, I feel strong, dedicated, passionate, and capable, for the demands of time and energy to Chair our 2020 OMDREB Board, working for the stakeholders.

As proven during the 1993 Board of Directors, great things can happen, when leadership can make a difference.
