Ken Droog

After leaving the corporate world 13 years ago, Ken and his wife Isabelle moved to Vancouver Island and instantly fell in love.  Ken got to work and successfully created and sold two businesses on the island. Soon after, he began his real estate business. As a high achiever, Ken has become one of the top producers in real estate and a consistent member of the Platinum Club and RE/MAX Hall of Fame .  His knowledge in business has sparked “Droog and Associates” to be a local real estate force with their residential division as well as their commercial division. Ken is an Accredited Commercial Professional ( ACP ) with RE/MAX Commercial and a Full member of RE/MAX Commercial Division, as well as a Full member of the commercial division of the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board.

Ken is happy that his wife, Isabelle, decided to join him on his real estate venture, and now the two work together at RE/MAX First Realty, covering all areas of real estate.

In 2010, Ken piloted a new group called Kiting for Kids. Ken and Isabelle already donate to the Children's Miracle Network through each real estate transaction, but Kiting for Kids allows them to further support such a worthy cause and spread Ken's love for Kite Boarding at the same time. Kiting for Kids is a platform to funnel charity funds to the Children's Miracle Network and BC Children's Hospital. With Children's hospitals in need around the world and the sport being recognized worldwide, Ken's vision is to see the kite boarding community adopt Kiting for Kids on a global level.
