The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) recently awarded the Professional Excellence Award to Realtor and business owner Josh Bath.
The award honours people in real estate who’ve strengthened their profession by leading, mentoring and giving back, the board says. The winner must meet strict requirements of professionalism, ethics and community involvement over the course of his or her career.
Bath is an owner of Keller Williams Elite Realty, with offices in Port Coquitlam, Maple Ridge and Surrey, where he mentors more than 300 Realtors.
He develops and teaches courses to Realtors locally and internationally.
“Josh’s impact is felt all over the Tri-Cities and beyond,” says Ashley Smith, REBGV president. “He’s led a career that exemplifies professionalism, knowledge, leadership and community service. He sets a high standard for the Realtors he mentors, and the home buying and selling public they serve are the benefactors of his leadership.”
The Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce recently honoured Bath as Business Leader of the Year for 2018.
Outside of real estate, he dedicates his time to improving his communities. For the past 10 years, he’s been a volunteer and leader with Keller William’s RED Day, where his offices commit a day each year to improving their local communities.
Through RED Day, Bath has collected thousands of shoes for underprivileged kids, removed garbage from the Alouette and Coquitlam rivers, raised money to help a struggling local family and repaired and restored charitable centres like Hawthorne Lodge and the Ridge Meadows Child Development Centre.
