Metro Vancouver* REALTOR® Colette Gerber begins her one-year term today as Chair of the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver’s (REBGV) Board of Directors.

REBGV is the professional association of the more than 13,700 Realtors and real estate brokers across Metro Vancouver. REBGV provides a variety of member services, including the Multiple Listing Service®.

“I move into this role amid a public health crisis. The Realtor community that we represent at REBGV is working to embrace new practices and innovations to help the public meet their housing needs in a responsible way,” Gerber said. “I look forward to doing what I can to help the real estate profession guide, inform, and serve the public through these challenging times.”

Colette Gerber became a Realtor in 2008. Before joining the real estate profession, she had a lengthy career in management, finance, and luxury residential development. She’s also volunteered with and supported a number of charitable and community organisations across the region, including the Heart and Stroke Foundation, YMCA Metro Vancouver, and the Dunbar Vision Implementation Committee.

We’d like to thank outgoing Chair Ashley Smith for her leadership during the 2019/2020 term.

Supporting Colette during her term will be Chair-Elect Taylor Biggar and Vice-Chair Daniel John.
