Century 21 snaps up award

Vernon’s Century 21 Realty named Franchisee of the Year at national conference in Montreal.

Vernon’s Century 21 Realty came away with some hardware from the real estate firm’s national conference recently in Montreal.

Bill Hubbard and Carla Dahlen, co-owners of Century 21 Realty, were acknowledged as Franchisee of the Year for all of Canada. The award is not based solely on sales production and marketing, but also on their charity contributions to Easter Seals’ Send a Disabled Child to Camp program.

Century 21 is the oldest real estate franchise in the North Okanagan, with offices in Vernon and Enderby. Hubbard and Dahlen are partners with Myrna and Layton Park, with Century 21 Assurance in Kelowna. Between the two franchises, there are more than 100 salespeople.

In terms of fundraising, Century 21 Executives were No. 3 in Canada and No. 9 in the world for their charity work with Easter Seals, raising more than $30,000 in 2011.

Kelowna will host the national convention next September. It is expected to draw more than 600 realtors to the region.
