Real estate industry has undergone monumental shift, says CREB®'s longest-tenured past president
When Roy Wilson describes the early days in the 1950s in which he got his start in real estate, it quickly becomes clear just how much Calgary and the real estate industry has changed in one lifetime.
"I've seen lots of ups and downs," said Wilson, who headed up CREB®'s board of directors in 1961, officially making him the organization's longest-tenured past president.
In fact, he describes today's market as "taking a kick in the teeth" but, adds confidently, "it's going to turn around."
