Experience:  

Prior to his career in real estate Lyle spent 13 years, including the summers while studying for his Forestry Engineering Diploma, working for M&B’s coastal logging operations, dragging his young wife from Vancouver out to postings in Ucluelet, Port Alberni, Franklin River, Tofino, then up to what was then known as the Queen Charlotte Islands (where their first child was born) and finally down to the Cowichan Valley, where 3 more children arrived and he and Marilyn made a decision to settle.


Lyle got his Real Estate license in 1984 and made a decision to really become expert at this new career. He returned to study for the next 4 years resulting in graduation in Urban Land Economics from the Sauder School of Business at UBC, plus 4 years of Commercial real estate study and specialization to earn the designation of CCIM (certified Commercial Investment Member) from the US National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA).


In the early 1990s Lyle was “borrowed” from the private sector for 2 years by BC Buildings Corporation, as their Senior Real Estate Analyst responsible for acquisitions and dispositions of major Government properties, following which Lyle joined with other two partners and operated one of Victoria’s most successful Commercial Real Estate offices.


Lyle has been an active and award winning member of the Commercial Divisions of the Vancouver Island, Victoria and Greater Vancouver Real Estate Boards, and has been retained by the BC Real Estate Association as an instructor of courses on proper Real Estate practices for both new and current licensees.
