BCLI is pleased to welcome Alex Longson as a new member of its volunteer committee for the Strata Property Law Project—Phase Two.
Alex started his career in real estate in 2005, shortly after emigrating from the United Kingdom, where he had 20 years’ experience in the automotive-engineering industry working as a test engineer for Ford Motor Company. He became licensed for strata management in 2006 with a brokerage in the Okanagan, and subsequently became licensed for rental management and as a managing broker in 2009.
In 2012, Alex joined the staff of the Real Estate Council of British Columbia and in his role as senior compliance officer he investigates complaints, advises and educates licensees on the requirements of the legislation, and supports the real estate council’s strata management advisory group.
Alex has also been a guest speaker to the Strata Property Agents of British Columbia, and the British Columbia Real Estate Association, and is currently a resource to the Real Estate Council of Alberta for the Condominium Managers Implementation Advisory Committee.
The Strata Property Law (Phase Two) Project Committee was formed in fall 2013. It is an all-volunteer project committee made up of leading experts in strata-property law and practice in British Columbia. The committee’s mandate is to assist BCLI in developing recommendations to reform-strata property law in the seven areas selected for study in this project.
