55 Years of Calgary Real Estate: 1988 CREB® President Jerry Roberts

1988 CREB® president Jerry Roberts recalls Winter Olympics arriving at the right time for Calgarians

The international sporting event transformed Calgary, as 1,423 athletes from 57 nations competed in 46 events over 16 days in February 1988.
