Local realtor joins compensation board

A Kelowna realtor has been appointed to the board for the Real Estate Compensation Fund Cooperation. 

Anne Petrone, with Re/Max in Kelowna, will join a board headed up by chair Don Lancaster, a realtor in Penticton and fellow directors John Finlayson, from Duncan;  Philip L. Jones, from Cranbrook; and Brian Thompson, of Vancouver.

The RECFC was created in 2005 to provide  protection for a member of the public who has entrusted a licensee with money that was either:

• obtained by fraud of a licensee or individual; 

• misappropriated or wrongly converted; 

• or intentionally not paid over or accounted for.
