A Salmon Arm realtor and broker-owner is the new president of the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board.
Marv Beer of Royal LePage will lead an 11 member board, and succeeds Tanis Read who becomes past president.
“It’s an exciting time to be a part of an organization that is fast evolving into one that is leading edge and forward looking,” says Beer.
“I’m excited to play a role alongside my fellow Directors in OMREB’s delivery of strong advocacy, professional development and exciting new technology and tools, helping our members in their quest to deliver exceptional service to local real estate consumers.”
Beer, who has worked in both Alberta and BC, has been licensed as a Realtor since 2004, an OMREB member for 6 years, a director on the board since 2015 and served as vice president this past year.
Michael Loewen, a Kelowna Realtor, is the board’s new vice president.
The other board members include Tina Cosman of Salmon Arm, Kim Heizmann and Joe Pearson of the Vernon area, and Dean Desrosiers, Don Gagnon, Kent Jorgenson, Sheryl Lobsinger and Cliff Shillington of the Kelowna region.
The new Board of Directors supports the work of more than 1,200 local Realtors, who work at 89 real estate offices in the Southern Interior.
