What an amazing time of the year this is. The fun of playing in the snow and the joy of festivities this month have only begun. It's cold out there but then there's the warmth of family and friends. Oh hey, did anyone say, the business is slow?
Well its business as usual for KADREA REALTORS®. The same entrepreneurial attitude and the same ardent zeal to excel! The same heart that loves, cares and gives back to our community. This is the 'Kind' of Christmas, KADREA members like to celebrate!
1. Kindness Kits Program for Christmas:
Every year, KADREA REALTORS® volunteer for a Christmas initiative in the month of December to support the community in whichever way they can. It's no big news that REALTORS® have come forward to donate, spend time and share the love with those in need. This year again, for Christmas, REALTORS® pledged their support to BCSPCA Second Chances Thrift Store to provide ‘Kindness Kits’ for those who don't have adequate clothing to keep themselves warm during winter.
In this campaign, REALTORS® packaged donated clothes into ‘Kindness Kits’ and just in a few hours they were ready with 155 kits for distribution. These kits were then sent for distribution to ASK Wellness
. This target 150 kindness kits was achieved on 3rd December. To celebrate this passion to give back to our community, the holiday season and a very successful year, Kamloops REALTORS® assembled for the KADREA Christmas Social - held on Dec 9th at Red Beard Café. We are proud of all our REALTORS® who participated in this campaign.

2. Managing Broker's Focus Group:
Office of the Superintendent of Real Estate (OSRE) is reviewing the role of managing brokers within BC’s regulatory framework. On Dec 2nd, 2019, BCREA facilitated a Managing Broker's focus group for KADREA's Managing Brokers to get recommendations on the OSRE's discussion paper. In October this year, OSRE published a consultation paper to challenge assumptions about the managing broker role and function. BCREA is working with member boards to consult REALTORS® so that we can make a submission to OSRE by their December 15 deadline.
