Michael Trites Leads Provincial Real Estate Organization


British Columbia Real Estate Association Board of Directors 2019-2020

BCREA Board of Directors, staff and key stakeholders were pleased to welcome Michael Trites as the 2019-2020 President at the annual general meeting on March 26, 2019.

With more than 40 years as a licensed REALTOR®, Michael brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to BCREA. He is currently the managing broker of Royal LePage Northstar Realty in South Surrey and White Rock and previously served as a director for the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board for four years.

"Working in organized real estate has always been a rewarding experience," says Michael. "In 2018, there was a lot of focus on helping REALTORS® adapt to change. In 2019, I look forward to helping shift that perspective and working with BCREA and the province's 11 member boards to lead change."

Joining Mr. Trites on the Board of Directors are President-Elect Anthony Bastiaanssen of the Okanagan Mainland Real Estate Board, where he was president in 2016; Past President James Palanio of Royal LePage Penticton; and BCREA CEO Darlene Hyde.

BCREA also welcomes new REALTOR® Directors Gian-Piero Furfaro (Victoria) and Janice Stromar (Vancouver Island). Returning REALTOR® Directors include Ray Harris (Port Coquitlam), Dan Morrison (Vancouver), Cory Raven (Vancouver) and Katherine Rutherford (Kamloops). Public Directors Kam Raman and Mark Sakai are also returning.

We look forward to the experience Michael and the new directors bring as dedicated professionals in organized real estate and we're excited to work more closely with them this year.
