The Manitoba Real Estate Association (MREA) is pleased to announce that Glen Tosh is our 2020 MREA president.
Glen Tosh has been an MREA member and REALTOR® in the Brandon/Souris area, and has been residing in Souris since 2008. Glen started his career as a mortgage broker and quickly switched over to the sales side when he saw the impact that REALTORS® have in helping people fulfil their dreams of homeownership.
Following in his parents’ footsteps, Glen has been volunteering nearly his entire life. From coaching, community development and foundation work, Glen is committed to making a difference in his community. The Assiniboine Community College Alumni Association recently presented Glen with their Community Service Award. He also received the Community Leader award from The Brandon Sun in 2018.
When he began his career as a REALTOR®, Glen quickly sought ways to make a difference in his chosen profession. This led him to volunteer at the Brandon Area REALTORS® association, where he held numerous leadership positions before taking on the role of president in 2016-2017. It is this role that led him to volunteer at the MREA and since then Glen has held multiple volunteer executive roles.
“I enjoy meeting new people through my job and volunteering roles. As a volunteer, I appreciate the process and diligence at the executive level. Initially, I was surprised how much work is done behind the scenes and impressed by how often staff and volunteers meet with political leaders to share their industry knowledge and advocate for homeowners.”
Glen also recently served on MREA’s centre of excellence committee and is looking forward to seeing the impact of having people from outside the industry involved in our education process.
“I am honoured to have the privilege of serving as the 2020 president of the Manitoba Real Estate Association. It is exciting to serve with a board and staff that has a nice blend of experience and new ideas as we continue to move forward with the three pillars of the association: to BUILD, EMPOWER and UPHOLD the real estate profession. I look forward to meeting many new Manitobans in 2020."
