KELOWNA, BC (April 13, 2017) – The team at CENTURY 21 Assurance Realty in Kelowna, British Columbia is under expanded leadership. Max and Anna Carbone have purchased the brokerage from Myrna Park, after relocating to the Okanagan from Toronto. Myrna will stay on board as the Managing Broker as will Ken Wiebe, Associate Broker and co-founder.  Together, they will operate as a leadership team to continue to build a positive, high-performing culture for realtors, staff and clients.

“Since we arrived, we’ve spent time with Myrna, Ken, staff and our realtors. We have seen first-hand what a great culture and system they have created,” says Max Carbone. “Anna and I intend to build on a successful brand, formula and culture that helps realtors and clients realize their dreams.”

“Over the last couple of years, we have travelled across Canada to find the best place for us to live,” says Anna. “We considered economic conditions, the amazing outdoor activities and a great climate. For us, Kelowna has the perfect conditions for a work-life balance and is where we want to call home.”

“People in Kelowna are positive, friendly, welcoming, and fun to be with,” say Max and Anna. “We look forward to becoming part of the community and contributing to charitable activities that add value to our new home.”

The CENTURY 21 Assurance team will continue with its successful Vision 25 strategic marketing plan. It provides an entire marketing support system for agents including professional photography, social media coordination and graphic design capabilities to ensure properties are presented at their best.

Prior to joining CENTURY 21 Assurance, Max and Anna were the leaders behind a strategic planning service that helped leaders and teams improve performance and deliver positive results. They bring deep experience in sales, sales management and leadership in real estate, media and finance with leading firms. Their background makes them ideally suited to grow CENTURY 21 Assurance Realty and continue to help their realtors deliver excellent client service.

“We are looking forward to what the Carbone’s have to offer CENTURY 21 Assurance Realty,” says Brian Rushton, executive vice president, CENTURY 21 Canada™. “They have such an interesting background, and the skills they bring to Kelowna will, no doubt, set them up on the road to success. To strengthen our brand even further, we’re pleased the former owners plan to continue with the brand for years to come.”
