On April 16, 2018, the WinnipegREALTORS® Commercial Division received the annual Canadian Commercial Network (CCN) Merit Award. Every year, the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) presents this award to a commercial division that provides outstanding services to its members and provides leadership to other boards and associations.
Last year, the Commercial Division successfully launched its state-of-the-art online information exchange portal (CPIX) using the Catylist Platform. Since its introduction in last quarter of 2017, the website (www.winnipegcommercialrealtors.ca) has received over 1,200 listings, providing comprehensive property information to businesses, leasers and commercial real estate agents around the country. The favorable reaction to the Catylist designed website from both commercial division members and association stakeholders was encapsulated by a positive article written by the Winnipeg Free Press, which emphasized the reach of the website to drive investment to Winnipeg from anywhere in the US or overseas.
“We are very pleased that our Commercial Division continues to be acknowledged for the exceptional support it provides its members and their leadership role within the larger commercial real estate community,” said Marina James, WinnipegREALTORS® CEO. “The council is extremely proactive in their efforts to create a division that leads change.”
“This is the sixth CCN Merit award that we’ve won,” said Trevor Clay, chair of the Commercial Division Council. “It’s very satisfying to be recognized by our peers at this level. The launch of the new commercial website was a success from every angle and I feel this award realizes that.”
