About Us

Ron Skinner
Realtor/Associate Broker

Ron Skinner is a lifelong Yorkton resident and businessman.

"I started my business career in broadcast television and cable TV in 1977, where I had various responsibilities in television advertising sales as well as management. In 1980 I started to build 50 cable television systems in smaller communities in Saskatchewan, for our family-owned businesses.

"In 1986, with the sale of the television stations and the completion of the cable TV build, I acquired Realty World Hall Agencies, a real estate and general insurance business. In  February 2010 I sold my brokerage to Cornerstone Credit Union and managed it for them for two years.

"The year 1986 was also the year I married Gaylene. Together we have raised our two children, Whitney Dawn and RJ (Ronald Jeffery). Our children are both now independent; RJ is a student at the University of Manitoba on a football scholarship and Whitney has graduated from the University of Calgary with a Commerce Degree with distinction, and is employed with Boston Consulting Group.

This year, 2012, marks my 25th year in real estate, an industry that is always interesting and challenging, and is very enjoyable because of the people you meet as clients, then friends."

Gaylene Skinner
Realtor

Gaylene "GPS" Skinner is a resident of Yorkton and one of the first new arrivals at the Yorkton Union Hospital back in the early 1960s!

"Over the years, having worked in the office of Morris Industries from 1981 to 1987 and then other offices including Image Cable Systems in customer service on their 1-800 line for six years, then to All Season Rentals and Sales when it began in 1987, I have met many of the same persons who stop me downtown to say Hi at the grocery store and other places.

"Volunteer involvement over the years included time as the President of the Legacy Lions Club, one of the first ladies worldwide to be a Lions Club president. I was a member of the parent council for Fairview School for three years in the 1990s. We are connected to Ducks Unlimited as lifelong members, and are supporters of The Health Foundation. I admire the work of Habitat for Humanity and will seek to become involved with their programs this year.

"Interests include travel, welcoming new persons to our area of this province, and outdoor adventuring beyond the lawnmower and flowerpots on fine summer days in this region of the prairies. Working with real estate clients becomes a beyond-the-sale connection as we share ongoing visits and lifestyle conversations too from time to time. Feel free to email directly to gpskinner@sasktel.net.

"My interest in real estate began in 1999 with registration then as a Realtor serving Good Spirit Acres and Yorkton with listing and selling homes. I have been a Yorkton Real Estate Board member as a director."
