Today, the Ottawa Real Estate Board’s (OREB) board of directors announced that Nicole Christy will assume the permanent position of CEO on June 1, 2024.

Christy came from the London and St. Thomas Association of Realtors (LSTAR) as vice-president, corporate governance and leadership development. She joined LSTAR in 2021.

“Nicole’s experience with organized real estate and her connections to the Ottawa community make her the premier choice for CEO of the only local association dedicated to empowering Ottawa realtors to be community builders,” says OREB president Curtis Fillier.

“She’ll have the full confidence and support of OREB’s board of directors as she begins to tackle a list of exciting priorities.”

Christy brings several years of experience in housing policy and providing government relations support to Canada’s leading national associations, including the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA), the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and the Canadian Home Builders’ Association.

Christy succeeds Janice Myers who left OREB at the end of 2023 after 10 years to become CREA’s CEO.


Looks forward to bringing members ‘new tools and services (to) elevate their practice and the value they offer clients’


“It’s a pivotal time in a rapidly evolving industry, but our mission remains steadfast: for OREB and its realtor members to be respected as the leading authority on real estate matters,” says Christy.

“I know I’m joining an exceptional team and I look forward to working with everyone to bring our members new tools and services that will elevate their practice and the value they offer to clients — including new technologies that facilitate barrier-free access to province-wide listing and property data.”
