Changes Proposed For City Real Estate Department

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - A couple concerned residents came to City Council on Monday recommending that the city's Real Estate Department be changed into a licensed brokerage.

 

Jill Skriver and Brian Shockey feel the obvious benefits would be financial, as the city would not be paying out commissions to other brokerages, but also it would ensure that the city would have somebody acting strictly on their behalf. Shockey says "in these land sales, like we're talking millions of dollars worth of land, commissions are secondary to the fact that the city wants to be represented so that it sees full benefit. Right now, the Real Estate Department with the City of Lethbridge does not have anybody who has any experience, per se, in the real estate industry."

 

They point out that Calgary and Edmonton have both adopted the brokerage system, not only for a financial benefit in retaining their own commissions, but it has also added to their credibility.

 

The City manager will review the information and present City Council with an analysis by March 31, 2014.
