â€śAs an international market with a great variety of property offerings, stunning natural beauty and all the amenities of a metropolitan center, Victoria was a high priority in our growth plan for Canada,â€ť said Anthony Hitt, CEO, Engel & VĂ¶lkers North America. â€śWe are especially fortunate to have Scott, Shelby and James, leaders in the market who share the same commitment to quality and client services, as our partners throughout our network.
