Rennie Team Tuesday: Debbie Chahal
Meet the face of Human Resources at Rennie, Debbie Chahal.
Why do you work with Rennie?

What makes you passionate about real estate?
Being born and raised in Vancouver, the topic is hardly inescapable. I have always had a keen eye for real estate and design; 10 years ago I wrote the Licensing exam out of pure interest, not knowing my career would come tenfold and land me back in world of real estate.
What do you most value in your friends?
Loyalty and empathy
What do you most value in your colleagues?
Kindness and integrity.
What are the biggest time wasters in your life? What do you do to manage them?

Name one or two of your favorite gems (ie. A place, thing, etc.)
Book of quotes and my journal that I have had since I was 8 years old.
Why do you love living in Vancouver?
Snowboarding, trees, and dare I say? The rain! I love the pitter patter of the rain, and nothing beats that fresh smell after a downpour … truly a Vancouverite.
Tell us about your everyday essentials.
Cell phone (it contains a series of my electronic quotes, which serve as daily reminders to live in the moment); MAC lip liner; transit pass.
