George Whyte Award

g_whyte_photo_from_REC.jpgCreated by the Real Estate Institute’s Golf Committee in 2001, this award honours George Whyte, a long time real estate licensee, who passed away suddenly in February 2000. At that time, George was the Chair of the Real Estate Council of BC.

An avid golfer, George exemplified what it meant to be a gentleman. In the words of Daniel Stewart, a founding member of the Institute’s golf tournament, George was “an example for all of us to follow”. George was a huge fan of the Institute despite the fact that he did not have the requisite education to become a member.

Presented each year at the Institute’s golf tournament by Judi Whyte, RI,  the award recognizes an individual who demonstrates exemplary professional conduct, has recognized achievements in the real estate profession, and supports the objectives of the Institute.
