RE/MAX ocean pacific realty opened its doors for business January 13, 1987. It was formed by four top producing sales associates who wanted to provide a real estate environment that would allow sales associates to be the best they could be. The connection with RE/MAX was a natural fit for the type of working environment that was envisioned.
Jim Gordon, Dave Procter, Bill Morrison and Glenn Procter were the original founders of RE/MAX ocean pacific realty. By selectively recruiting highly motivated sales associates with high ethical standards and a commitment to team play, the office grew to become one of the highest producing offices on Vancouver Island per sales associate.
Dave took over full ownership in 2013 when his partner, Jim, retired and hired Marty Douglas as Managing Broker.
We attained the #1 market share position in 1996 and have averaged 36-53.8% market share since. In 1998 at the RE/MAX Western Canada Awards conference Jim and Dave were recognized as Broker Owners of the Year in Western Canada (single office category).
In 2001 at the RE/MAX International Convention the office was recognized as “top office in number of closed transactions” (small market) for RE/MAX International.
