In addition to her role as immediate past president for BCREA, Deanna Horn also runs a Langley, BC-based RE/MAX Treeland Realty team with her husband and daughter. Horn says her double duties come with a significant perk.
“It takes time away from your business, but it also allows you to be very informed with what’s
going on and completely up to date with what’s going on with the profession.”
Horn was president of BCREA until March of 2017, meaning she led the organization through a tumultuous 2016 that saw a failed attempt to amalgamate the province’s 11 real estate boards and the appointment of a new superintendent to oversee the industry in BC. In addition to BCREA maintaining its goals of education, advocacy and upholding professional standards, Horn says the group is still adjusting its footing to a shifting landscape.
“We’re now looking at where we go from here,” she says. “We’re looking at the potential to build on last year and how we work with the new superintendent. I wouldn’t say we’re dealing with fallout, but we certainly want to build on what we learned the last couple years and move forward.”
Horn was recently honoured with a RE/MAX Special Services award for her many years of community and industry involvement.
