As REIX continues to evolve as an organization, we’re focusing efforts on connecting with subscribers through ongoing education and communication while welcoming new perspectives to stay abreast of trends and developments in the real estate world.
One way we’ve harnessed those new perspectives is with the addition of four new board members. The members represent younger real estate agents as well as seasoned professionals with a wealth of board and industry experience.
The new Advisory Board Members are:
Based in Lloydminster, AB with Coldwell Banker, Jennifer is a dually-licensed associate broker and property manager in both Alberta and Saskatchewan. She practices in all trades of real estate and has extensive board experience.
Jennifer was a member of the REALTORS® Association of Lloydminster and District Board of Directors from 2010 to 2015 and its President in 2013/2014. In 2016, she joined the Alberta Real Estate Association Board of Directors and served as its Chair in 2019.
Nathan is a real estate agent with Calgary’s Charles Real Estate and is licensed in residential and commercial real estate, as well as property management. He holds a BA from the University of Alberta with a double major in economics and psychology, and has experience driving sales and increasing market share through competitive pricing and innovative marketing strategies for a major Canadian retailer.
Vern is an associate broker for RE/MAX of Lloydminster, partner with the Midwest Group and fully licensed in both Alberta and Saskatchewan. He was elected to the Saskatchewan Real Estate Commission in 2015 as one of two industry representatives outside of Saskatoon and Regina, and served as Chair for three years until completing his second term in 2021.
In 2014, Vern received RE/MAX International’s Lifetime Achievement Award for distinguished service to the industry. He has also been a contributing editor to The Meridian Source since 2005, writing columns on real estate and community.

REIX welcomes Jennifer, Nathan, Vern and Jaison to the Advisory Board, where their energy, experience and industry knowledge will be put to good use.
