Local realtor a team player in and out of the office

Bobby Iio is not just the team leader of the Kamloops’ award-winning real estate group, Team 110. He is also a leading figure in philanthropy, locally and internationally.

“I firmly believe in supporting communities that have been so supportive and generous to me, that support my business and support my family,” said Iio, whose work with the local rotary club enables him to work with organizations in Kamloops and abroad.

As an active member of his community at home, Bobby sponsors and volunteers with children’s sports teams whenever possible. When Bobby isn’t providing outstanding service, professionalism and expertise in the real estate realm, he is coaching his two young sons’ teams. Kids’ baseball and hockey teams in Kamloops, and not just his children’s, have flourished thanks to the generosity of members including Bobby, and his Team 110 colleagues, Jeremy Bates and Adam Popien. Bobby’s work with his local rotary club has enabled him to get involved with local schools, mentoring and feeding children alike.

“I believe that to give back and help people that need it is something that is just good karma,” Iio said of being part of the pass-it-forward philanthropic movement and just doing the right thing. “If you help them, then someday they’ll think ‘I remember when someone helped me when I was really down and out and some random strangers came to my school and picked me up, fed me, talked to me, and read me books and now it’s my turn to help someone else’,” Iio said.

But just because these communities are not close to his home does not mean they are not close to his heart.

His rotary club also does extensive work abroad, such as helping build water wells and toilets in Thailand. “It’s very much a part of what rotary is and has always been,” Bobby said, “it’s one way to give back to be just one little person who shows up and gives a little bit of time or money or both and can be part of a massive organization globally.”
