Effective Dec. 1, Marty Douglas will assume Jim Gordon’s responsibilities as managing broker for both Comox Valley locations of Re/Max Ocean Pacific Realty Ltd.

Gordon and Dave Procter announced the change Tuesday while revealing that Gordon is retiring.

Douglas was first licensed in real estate in B.C. in 1970 and has led award-winning real estate teams for national franchises and independent real estate companies, all in the Comox Valley. He has served as chair of the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB), the B.C. Real Estate Association (BCREA), the Real Estate Council of B.C. and the Real Estate Errors and Omissions Insurance Corporation.

In 2010 he was recognized as an honourary member of VIREB. He writes a monthly real estate column for REM, the national real estate magazine, and for the third time will act as MC for the 2013 Banff Western Connection, a Western Canada real estate conference.

In the Comox Valley, Douglas maintained a consistent record of service to the community, recognized by the Chamber of Commerce as Citizen of the Year in 1992.

He first joined Rotary in 1974 and continues as the program director for the Strathcona Sunrise Rotary Club. He has served as a member and chair of the Town of Comox advisory planning commission, member and president of Comox Valley Tourism, and has served as a moderator for municipal and federal all-candidate meetings.

“In today’s marketplace, technology allows the real estate business to be in the hands of amateurs. It deserves to be in the hands of professionals,” said Douglas. “I have always taken great pride in the skills and attitudes of the teams I am responsible for and welcome the opportunity to work with the people who have been so ably led by Jim Gordon.”
