FOUNDER A ND CEO, REAL ES­TATE WEB­MAS­TERS

Nanaimo-based Mor­gan Carey should be used to ac­co­lades by now. This is the third year in a row that his Real Es­tate Web­mas­ters (REW) has been named an En­tre­pre­neur Of The Year fi­nal­ist. Carey keeps earn­ing more lau­rels be­cause he re­fuses to rest on any of them. He founded his boot­strapped busi­ness in 2004 to make web­sites for re­al­tors, but both the com­pany and its tech­nol­ogy have trav­elled light years since then. Among REW'S lat­est in­no­va­tions is the aug­mented re­al­ity fea­ture on its app, which Carey de­scribes as “Poké­mon Go for real es­tate.” Point your phone around a neigh­bour­hood, and in­stead of Pikachus and Bul­basaurs you'll see which prop­er­ties are for sale and for how much.

Carey says his busi­ness grows 35 per­cent year-over-year like clock­work, and he no longer has to fight for ev­ery win. “It's a lot eas­ier to make money when you have re­la­tion­ships and you have money,” he adds. “Suc­cess breeds suc­cess.” –D.H.
