Manitoba Real Estate Association (260 x 230)

Over the years REALTORS like Lorne Weiss, Ruthe Penner and Harry DeLeeuw have become known as the “go to experts” for Manitoba reporters. They and MREA staff are still as knowledgeable about their industry and housing issues in Manitoba as ever, but have moved to new offices on Inkster at Keewatin in Winnipeg. 

Reporters are welcome to join the official open house.
