“I’m very proud to be a part of the team at RECBC” said Erin Seeley, CEO of RECBC. “Supporting everyone — women and men — to grow and develop in their careers is an important part of our workplace culture and one of our core values. I feel very lucky to get to work with a wonderful group of people who do so much each day to protect consumers and to promote professionalism and confidence in BC’s real estate industry.”
