advocacy BCREA is the voice of BC’s REALTORS®. We work with all levels of government to advocate for public policy that provides housing opportunities, ensures economic vitality, protects property owners, preserves the environment and builds better communities.
standard forms In collaboration with lawyers, real estate boards and other industry experts, we draft and update the standard legal forms that are the backbone of every transaction. We also give REALTORS® ongoing training in working with the forms so consumers can have full confidence in the profession.
economic research Our Economics team strives to enhance understanding of the factors that influence housing markets. We analyze housing markets and the economic trends that shape them for the eight real estate boards and 26,000 REALTORS® across British Columbia.
quality of life Our work is driven by our commitment to the Quality of Life principles upheld by real estate associations across Canada. To that end, we support policies that help ensure economic vitality, provide housing opportunities, preserve the environment, protect property owners and build better communities with good schools and safe neighbourhoods.
