Recent development proposals, approvals and construction starts in downtown Victoria
Despite a perceived slowdown in the downtown Victoria multi-unit real-estate market developers continue to float new proposals as shovels hit the ground on approved projects.
One of the newest major proposals to come before planners is Vancouver-based Chard Development’s concept for a 10-storey, 82 unit residential building with ground floor commercial space at 836-838 Broughton Street. Having recently completed an 11-storey luxury tower in the 600-block of Broughton, this project will pad the developer’s downtown Victoria roster for a total of five buildings. [Read more]
How to become a Realtor?
Posted 18 February 2012 - 10:51 AM
My wife is interested in becoming a realtor. What's the best way to do that?
Also, what's the situation like for Realtors out there right now?

- Becoming a REALTOR® is relatively easy. You can use this as a resource -> http://www.recbc.ca/...ing/career.html I had an engineering friend do the course in about 4 weeks (literally). For the average person it would probably take those 2 to 4 months depending on how much free time you have. You have a maximum of one year to complete it and then you write the exam and go from there. All the expenses including course/insurance/board fees/etc. to get your started will run approximately $4,000 to $5,000. Your monthly fees will be approximately $350 to over $1,000 depending on which brokerage you are with.
- What is the situation like? Depends. On average not very good; however, with the industry in a huge amount of flux there are opportunities. You really have to be very creative to generate business unless you are extremely established in Victoria with tons of connections. In my opinion, most new REALTORS® with the business model of the last 40 years won't make it longer than 2 years.
