Ian Burns was recently named CEO of the Alberta Real Estate Association (AREA). Burns has a strong portfolio of governance and regulatory work to go along with extensive experience, the association says.
The Alberta Real Estate Association (AREA) says it is “taking steps… to look at the issue of residential property measurement" after a report on fines levied on real estate salespeople for misrepresenting the size of listings.
