With 22 years of real estate experience, including nine years as an agency owner, Sylvie Blouin was elected to the QPAREB Board of Directors in 2019, where she served on the Governance and Ethics Committee, the Audit Committee, and the Professional Practices Committee. She has also been a member of the Board of Directors of the Collège de l’immobilier du Québec for five years. Previously, she served for two years on the Board of Directors of the GMREB. She is beginning a new one-year term as Vice President.

Furthermore, Mathieu Cousineau was re-elected as President and Antoine Halabi was elected Vice President of Centris’ Board of Directors.

He has participated in task forces for the enhancement of products and services, provided to brokers, by the GMREB or Centris.

Finally, Daniel Dagenais and André Charbonneau were re-elected as President and Vice President of the Collège de l’immobilier du Québec’s Board of Directors.
