What is the Council?

Real Estate Council of Alberta

The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) is composed of twelve council members, representing residential and commercial real estate, property management, mortgage brokers, real estate appraisers, and the public. Council members are responsible for determining, setting and enforcing standards of conduct and business practices for industry professionals, providing services that enhance and improve the industry, and administering the Real Estate Act, Bylaws, and Rules.

The mortgage brokerage industry holds a seat on the RECA council, where our industry's concerns, ideas and questions may be brought forth. Pat Kelly was elected by AMBA to represent the mortgage brokerage industry on Council in 2013. Gary Siegle previously held the title from 2007-2013. This position has helped to ensure that RECA and AMBA maintain a strong and positive working relationship, and continued to build upon a shared common interest of promoting a vibrant and growing mortgage brokerage industry, all the while ensuring the protection of the public interest.
