The History of Vancouver. Year 1919 Vancouver was booming with lumber, business, construction and land. Property values were the highest in North America.That has not changed much! Brokers started the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver to promote property ownership and lobied the government on behalf of the property owners.
In 1925, the Vancouver Real Estate Listings became on a cooperative system, kind of like the MLS of today. The multiple listing service became a reality in the 1950s, setting standards around North America.
In the 70’s, the Vancouver MLS became on of the first computerized systems in Canada. We pioneered the technology. Nearly 90 years ago the Vancouver Real Estate Board was created by a few good men…I would like to think we are making them proud and creating our own Vancouver History!
