Georgian Triangle Association of REALTORS® & Southern Georgian Bay Real Estate Association Announce Merger

Apr 19, 2013, Collingwood ON – The Georgian Triangle Association of REALTORS® and the Southern Georgian Bay Real Estate Association have announced their merger, following a membership vote on April 17, 2013.

The merger discussions were initiated by both local real estate boards with the assistance of the Ontario Real Estate Association’s Centre for Leadership Development.

According to the Georgian Triangle Association of REALTORS® president, Andres Paara, the goal of the merger is to assist in accomplishing shared objectives by pooling resources, tools and expertise.

“By combining our assets, we will be able to provide more valuable services to our members and most importantly, to the communities that our members serve – communities in which we live and work and want to see thrive.”

“There’s strength in numbers,” adds Paara. “This merger will elevate the level of professionalism and service from our local REALTORS® throughout the Southern Georgian Bay area.”

To Southern Georgian Bay Real Estate Association president, Gray Watters, “The merger is a perfect fit from a demographic (and geographic) perspective but more importantly, we have a shared ethos and that is supporting our neighbours and building our communities.”

The proposed new name is the Southern Georgian Bay Association of REALTORS® with a membership of over five hundred REALTORS®.
