Coldwell Banker Canada Announces Ambassador Award Winner

 BURLINGTON, ON (February 8, 2018) – The Coldwell Banker Canada network has named Bob Buttar, Broker/Owner of Coldwell Banker Haida Realty of Leduc, Alberta as the recipient of the 2017 Canadian Ambassador Award.  The award is the most prestigious individual honour awarded by Coldwell Banker Canada, and is presented annually to the person who best represents the Coldwell Banker values and beliefs in Canada.

A Past President and Life Member of the Edmonton Real Estate Board, Bob Buttar has 40-year history of leading a quality business operation, renowned for its outstanding community service efforts.  During Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017, Coldwell Banker Haida Realty held its 20th annual ‘Celebrate Canada’ campaign.  Volunteers planted 12,000 Canadian flags on front lawns throughout the city on Canada Day and over 12,000 pounds of food was donated to the local food bank.

Other community activities under Buttar’s leadership include the sponsorship of two local hockey teams, and the charity ride for ‘Kids with Cancer’.  At this event, Bob Buttar rode his own motorcycle to raise funds for cancer research.  He has consistently been recognized as one of the event’s top fundraisers, and Bob has personally raised $30,000 in the past three years.

A respected business owner, Bob’s company Coldwell Banker Haida Realty has previously been recognized with the Coldwell Banker 20 year Milestone Award and was named the city of Leduc’s ‘Business of the Year’, after 40 years of business in the community.

“The Coldwell Banker reputation as a full-service provider has been forged by dedicated real estate professionals all across the country,” said Andy Puthon, President of Coldwell Banker Canada Operations ULC.  “We’re very proud to recognize Bob Buttar for an extraordinary performance that truly represents the best qualities and values of the Coldwell Banker brand in Canada.  He sets a shining example for others in our network and our industry to follow.”
