Ashley Smith is the 2019/2020 president of The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV).
“I look forward to representing my real estate colleagues and serving my professional association in this, our 100th year in business,” Smith says. “The Realtor profession is about representing, guiding and protecting the home buying and selling public and helping to build healthy, prosperous and sustainable communities. Since 1919, REBGV and its members have been working to advance these goals across our region.”
Smith, who is with Oakwyn Realty, became a Realtor in 2008 and four years later became one of the youngest people ever elected to REBGV’s Board of Directors. A self-described governance enthusiast, she has completed the Institute of Corporate Directors Not-For-Profit Governance Essentials program, WATSON’s Governing with Intention and Chair with Intention programs, and BoardSource’s Leadership Certificate for Not-For-Profit Board Chairs. Leading up to her year as president, she also served on REBGV’s Governance and Government Relations committees.
