Normally, we’d hate to brag…but our agents are AWESOME!!!
They’re not only knowledgeable and trusted advisers when it comes to the complications of Real Estate Transactions, and they’re not only caring friends who understand the concerns of their clients. They also are deeply involved (and some of them are deeply in love) with the local community and lifestyle. They are passionate about life in the Sea to Sky Corridor, and this is explicitly expressed through their “extra-curricular” activities.
Take Bruce Watt, for example. Not only is he a large part of our Whistler Office (literally – Bruce, how tall are you, exactly?), but he is also a founding member of the Canadian Avalanche & Rescue Dog Association (CARDA). Back in the late seventies, Bruce and another ski patroller were buried in an avalanche on the north face of Whistler Mountain. He survived, but as a patroller, he knew that many others were not so lucky. His experience, hard work and dedication led to the creation of Whistler’s first Avalanche Rescue Dog Team, and eventually the creation of CARDA.
Bruce’s story is a fascinating piece of Whistler history, and one that goes to show how a few people in a small town can bring about big change. We’re so honoured that our friend Bruce will be sharing his story TOMORROW evening at 7PM, Wednesday, October 19th, 2011 as part of the October Speaker Series at the Whistler Museum. Tickets are $7. Donations for CARDA will also be accepted, and there will be a rescue dog to greet listeners. Thanks, Bruce, for being such a good neighbour!
