UPDATE: Okanagan's two real estate associations are merging

November 27, 2020 - 11:59 AM

The two real estate boards serving the Okanagan and beyond are merging as of Jan. 1 to create the 13th largest real estate board in Canada.

The Okanagan Mainline and South Okanagan real estate boards will represent more than 1,900 realtors and be called the Association of Okanagan Realtors, states a joint news release issued today, Nov. 27.

The president of OMREB Kim Heizmann and the president of SOREB Lyndi Cruickshank said in the release the two real estate boards have come together to form a "more perfect union."

Heizmann will serve as president of the new board while Cruickshank will be vice-president.

The merger will combine 1,300 realtors in 88 offices from the Okanagan Mainline board, and 306 realtors in 34 offices in the South Okanagan as well as six offices in the northern part of the province.

It will cover a territory stretching from the U.S. border to Salmon Arm and Revelstoke, west to Manning Park and east to Rock Creek, as well as Chetwynd, Tumbler Ridge and Dawson Creek in the South Peace River region.
