Al and his wife Linda, moved to Magna Bay from Kamloops in 1982 and were successful in the construction business right from the start. They came to the point where they knew that their potential was unrealized and that their real careers were out there waiting for them.
Linda was the first to go back to school and is now a registered nurse at the Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops. When it was Al's turn for further education, Real Estate was his goal. Al was licensed in March 1995 and since then Al continues his education in an honest effort to be as good at his chosen career as possible.
From November of 1996 to February 1997, Al completed the Floyd Wickman Sweat Hogs program, the most intense and highly regarded Real Estate course in North America. Less than one-tenth of one percent of REALTOS® in North America are Sweat Hog Graduates. As usual, Al went in with a positive attitude and was presented with a number of awards including, Top Team, Top Team Leader, Tops in Listings, Top Overall Producer and the On Track Award for consistent performance. Al continues to take courses related to Real Estate.
Since entering the profession Al has been bestowed numerous awards for his productivity and service to clients. From late 1996 through to the present Al has received several Outstanding Achievement Awards of Excellence and is a multiple award winner of the Silver Club, the Masters Club and has received the Centurion Award each year of 2000 through 2008 and was inducted into the Canada Masters Hall of Fame in 2005.
On a personal note, Al and Linda have always been community minded with many hours volunteered to the North Shuswap Lions Club, North Shuswap Community Association, Shuswap Lake Bluegrass Festival Society, North Shuswap Health Care Society, North Shuswap First Responders, and anywhere else the need arises. For their efforts they were awarded North Shuswap Citizens of the Year in 1990, 1999 & 2000 as well as Ambassadors of the Shuswap in 1993.
Al's interests include Classic Cars such as his 1949 Ford Coupe and he and Linda both enjoy their woodworking shop.
If a property transaction is in your future, call Al. You can be assured of having a caring and professional REALTOR® on your side as part of your team.
Nadine, husband Jerry, and 2 sons, moved to Celista from Aldergrove in early 1997. The North Shuswap beckoned and held the promise of a better quality of life for the family. Within a short time, it was evident that the move had been a good one and no one in the family is having any regrets.
Shortly following the relocation, Nadine attended the Okanagan University College in Salmon Arm and within a year of the move, Nadine came to work for Century 21 Lakeside Realty Ltd. and Al Christopherson. Nadine enjoys the challenges of the Real Estate Industry and is proud to be Assisting Al in his business.
Like Al and his wife Linda, Nadine and Jerry enjoy being involved in their community as volunteers, players and supporters. Nadine often comments on how wonderful the people of the North Shuswap are and the community spirit makes it easy for one to be proud to be a part of it all. So glad not to have waited for retirement to make the move to the North Shuswap.
