The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) awarded REALTOR® and broker/owner of Sutton Group-Seafair Realty, K. Scott Russell, the Professional Excellence Award on May 31. 

The Professional Excellence Award is the highest honour given in the real estate profession. The award honours those in real estate whose careers, year in and out, have epitomized integrity, knowledge, ethics, leadership, community service, and mentorship.

Russell operates Sutton Group-Seafair Realty offices in Richmond, Delta, and Tsawwassen. Throughout his over 40-year career, Scott has supported and mentored hundreds of brokers and Realtors. 

"Scott has been a constant advocate for our profession and our industry throughout his career. His legacy of service speaks for itself, but it’s his caring personality and natural leadership that makes people him a rock for so many Realtors in our community."
Daniel John, Chair, Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver

Russell served as president of REBGV in 2009 after several years of volunteering as a Director.  Before that, he served on REBGV’s Professional Conduct and Arbitration committees. In 2015, he led the BC Real Estate Association as president after serving four years on its Directorate. 

Within his local community, Russell’s office has raised over $370,000 over 20 years for the Steveston Community Centre. He’s a strong supporter of the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive, offering his office as a drop-off location for more than 15 years.

Scott has also volunteered in youth sports as a hockey and baseball coach in Ladner and Richmond, serving on the executive of the Ladner Minor Baseball Association for many years.

"Integrity defines Scott Russell, and his ongoing drive to keep up with current trends and the many changing rules and regulations makes him one of the ‘go-to Brokers’ in our industry, which in turn provides a valuable asset to the Realtors in his brokerage."
Jake Moldowan, REBGV past-Chair (2011)
