The Westmar Story


Westmar opened in late 1990, when few experts in the real estate industry believed there was room in the market for a new firm. But founders Glenn Temes and Gary Craig knew there was a better way to help real estate agents achieve better performance and service through modern infrastructure and support resources – and that the only way to do it was to branch out on their own.

Despite intense competition among established firms, Westmar Realty had attracted over 30 real estate agents and rapidly outgrown its first Richmond office within just a few months. Believing Westmar could grow to over 100 agents, Glenn and Gary purchased the Richmond Macdonald Realty office and bought a dedicated building to support the continued growth of the newly renamed Macdonald Realty Westmar. By continuing to focus on its strong real estate agent support system as the foundation of the firm, Macdonald Realty Westmar became the largest real estate office in Richmond by its 10th anniversary, by both number of agents and sales volume. The firm still maintains this dominant position and has over 200 excellent agents on the team.

Long-time Westmar agent Vern Jurovich purchased Macdonald Realty Westmar in 2013 and will continue to strengthen the system that allows its agents to achieve peak performance in customer satisfaction and sales volume year after year.

How We Stand Out

Whether you are buying, selling or just looking for real estate advice, Westmar is committed to understanding your needs as a client – and we have the tools in place to ensure your success. Once you work with one of our Realtors, you’ll see the difference. Westmar, our strength is our people.

We provide educational opportunities for our realtors and for local schools through our scholarship program.

Our Commitment

Richmond Aerial View

We believe that the more we support our Realtors, the better they can serve their clients and their communities. We’re dedicated to providing training and education that allows our Realtors to excel at what they do. Our commitment to education extends to the Richmond community through our established scholarship program in the Richmond School District.

Minimizing our environmental impact is another important objective at Westmar. The technology we use has made Westmar a paperless office while providing near-instant access to the information our Realtors need. Efficient and environmentally conscious – it’s the Westmar way.
