The Evans name has been synonymous with residential real estate in the Regina region for over 5 decades. Venetta Evans, the matriarch of the Evans clan, was a successful female real estate broker in the 1960's, 70's and 80's, and was elected the first female President of the Regina and later the Saskatchewan Real Estate Associations. Working together with the provincial government, she was instrumental in helping create the Saskatchewan Real Estate Commission, and elevating the status and professionalism of Realtors throughout the province. In addition, Venetta and her team marketed and constructed new homes in Regina and White City. Morley, Bruce's brother, built homes under the Evans Homes moniker in the 1970's.
Upon her return from Alberta in the 1980's Merna Evans joined the Evans real estate team and soon began her successful carrier as a condominium developer and builder under the name Evans Development Group. Developments included Lakeview Manor on Hill Ave., Queens Park on 25th Ave., Mount Royal West on Mikkelson Drive, and Evans Court on Wascana on 23rd Ave.
Bruce Evans has extensive experience in real estate, development, marketing, management, residential and multi-family design, construction, and sales. After completing his economics degree from the University of Saskatchewan, Bruce joined the family real estate business. Beginning in residential sales, he received additional specialized education in commercial real estate offered by the Canadian Real Estate Association and became commercial sales manager of the family firm. In 1980, the company was appointed exclusive agents for Westridge Homes, giving Bruce his first experience in new home construction and sales. Bruce also purchased and renovated several homes in the Cathedral and Lakeview areas, typically taking the worst home on the block and transforming it into one of the best, improving property values throughout the neighbourhood as a result.
In 1982, Mr. Evans accepted an appointment as Chief of Staff to the Minister of Municipal (Urban) Affairs with the provincial government, where he oversaw the review and re-write of the Planning and Development Act, the legislation governing land development in the province, an Act largely unchanged to the present day. He has held the position of president or principal of several Saskatchewan businesses. In 1999 he was recruited to manage the operation and expansion of a championship golf course and manage sales and marketing of a real estate development company in Emerald Park. Evans' experience in development also includes as project manager for Jasmin on Echo, a resort development on the north shores of Echo Lake on the former YMCA Camp Ta-wa-Si.
Campbell Close, Bruce's latest project, is a 13 lot infill subdivision in the mature northwest neighbourhood of Rosemont. Mere blocks away from the beautiful and expansive A.E. Wilson Park, Campbell Close is serviced by several public and separate elementary schools and Martin Collegiate, featuring the newly re-invigorated Martin Academy, an innovative sport-focused program delivering core curriculum with sport-specific electives. BASEBALL-HOCKEY-SOFTBALL-PREMIER. The prestigious Luther College High School and the RCMP Training Academy are also mere minutes away.
Campbell Close will consist of 13 single family homes constructed by Evans' team of local suppliers and professional trades, including among others, Fries Tallman Lumber, Alfords Floors and Interiors, Builders Plumbing and Heating, and Beevers Electric.
In addition, Mr. Evans is the Mayor of White City, the fastest growing Town in Canada, a position he has held for 11 years.
