TORONTO, April 30 /CNW/ - Toronto Real Estate Board Members learned about
going green and other timely topics at their annual REALTOR Quest conference
April 24th and 25th at the Toronto Congress Centre.
Ontario's Chief Conservation Officer Peter Love addressed a crowd of
2,000 REALTORS at TREB's General Meeting offering useful information
The conference, which was attended by more than 6,000 REALTORS in total,
included Canada's largest residential real estate tradeshow and featured
Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation's Sustainable Condo exhibit.
"As REALTORS, the more we know about conservation, the better we can
advise our clients on choices to save them money while helping the planet,"
said TREB President Dorothy Mason.
On the tradeshow's centre stage TREB Member Zdenka Volek was presented
with an award for placing the one millionth listing on TorontoMLS.
"We are very proud of the fact that in the five years since TorontoMLS
was launched we have helped more than 2 million families make the right move,"
said Mrs. Mason.
Real estate professionals are required to continuously upgrade their
education to maintain their license and as such, 29 complimentary sessions
were offered as part of the conference on topics such as grow houses, home
staging and market forecasts.
Funds were also raised for Habitat for Humanity Toronto. In recent years,
the Toronto Real Estate Board has raised funds to sponsor two Habitat for
Humanity homes. A Habitat partner family made a presentation at REALTOR Quest
in recognition of TREB's commitment to helping families achieve the dream of
"REALTORS contribute to their communities by volunteering in countless
ways but we also recognize that by pooling our resources for Habitat we are
changing lives," said Mrs. Mason.

strict code of ethics and share a state-of-the-art Multiple Listing Service.
