Multiple Engel & Völkers Realtors® Join Professional Athlete Advisory Group

 Engel & Völkers South Tampa’s real estate advisors Jeramiah Bustin and Shane Vanderson, of the Bustin Vanderson Group, were inducted into the recently launched national Professional Athlete Advisory. Florida is chock-full of professional athletes from various sporting organizations. Many of whom already choose Engel & Völkers to represent their real estate interests. As such, last year Engel & Völkers launched its Professional Athlete Advisory with the mission to deliver signature services and solutions to fit the unique real estate needs of professional athletes. Of the founding REALTORS® from the program launch, Mr. Bustin and Mr. Vanderson are two of the six located here in Florida!

The Engel & Völkers Professional Athlete Advisory Group is comprised of licensed real estate professionals who are spouses or parents of professional athletes or even former athletes themselves, while others are simply the “go-to” local resource after years of working with players, coaches and staff. This select group has the direct experience required to understand the demands of a professional athlete’s lifestyle and how to best support it, while also being uniquely positioned with the brand, tools and resources to meet the distinct real estate needs of this clientele. This includes working with frenetic training and travel schedules, providing family support, and last-minute relocations. Mr. Bustin is a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, the Florida Association of REALTORS®, and the Greater Tampa Association of REALTORS®. He has had the opportunity to work with renowned sports figures throughout the tri-county area. Mr. Vanderson was a world-class racquetball athlete and 2004 World Champion, prior to his career in real estate.

“Athletes often have competing priorities in their rigorous careers,” said Anthony Hitt, president & CEO, Engel & Völkers Americas. “The members of our Professional Athlete Advisory Group are not just real estate professionals, but also take on the role of local concierge, project manager, investment guide, and more throughout the process to ensure a seamless, full-service experience.”

Canada – Multiple seizures of contraband and unauthorized items at Kent Institution

Agassiz, British Columbia – Correctional Service Canada

Between May 19 and July 27, 2021, as a result of the vigilance of staff members, contraband and unauthorized items were seized at Kent Institution, a maximum security institution.

The contraband and unauthorized items seized include the follow

May 19, 2021: Contents sent to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) for further analysis (estimated institutional value to be determined);

 June 27, 2021: 1 ounce of THC butter, 1 bale of tobacco, 4 USB readers, and sim cards (estimated institutional value $8,000);
July 16, 2021: 52 nicotine patches and 3.5 grams marijuana (estimated institutional value to be determined);
July 17, 2021: 2 cell phones, 2 stabbing weapons, 30 grams of crystal methamphetamines, and remnants of an unmanned air vehicle (estimated institutional value $15,000);
July 20, 2021: Remnants of an unmanned air vehicle (estimated institutional value to be determined);
July 22, 2021: 1 bale of tobacco, 2 grams of marijuana, 15 grams of crystal methamphetamines, 27.9 grams of shatter, 2 Micro SD chargers, and an unidentified powder (estimated institutional value to be determined);
 July 27, 2021: 10 grams of cocaine, 41 grams of crystal methamphetamines, and 4 packages of THC butter product (estimated institutional value $25,000).

The current estimated institutional value of these seizures is $48,000. The remaining contents that have not yet been valued are currently undergoing analysis by our partners at the RCMP.

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) uses a number of tools to prevent drugs from entering its institutions. These tools include ion scanners and drug-detector dogs to search buildings, personal property, inmates, and visitors.

CSC is heightening measures to prevent contraband from entering its institutions in order to help ensure a safe and secure environment for everyone. CSC also works in partnership with the police to take action against those who attempt to introduce contraband into correctional institutions.

CSC has set up a telephone tip line for all federal institutions so that it may receive additional information about activities relating to security at CSC institutions. These activities may be related to drug use or trafficking that may threaten the safety and security of visitors, inmates, and staff members working at CSC institutions.

The toll-free number, 1‑866‑780‑3784, helps ensure that the information shared is protected and that callers remain anonymous.
