Former CREB® president Bonnie Wegerich remembered challenges, successes in 2009
Bonnie Wegerich can sum up her time as CREB®'s president in 2009 with one word: recovery.
After residential resale housing prices in Calgary reached record highs in 2007, an economic downturn the following year caused prices to drop and sales to halt – a spillover effect that went well into Wegerich's year at the helm.
"In January, we had more sales than in December, and we were very excited about that. That's where we went from. Every month was getting better than it was," remembered Wegerich, a longtime real estate professional who worked and lived in Airdrie.
