During High School, I was offered an assistant position with a well-established, top-producing Real Estate Team in Kelowna. The experience I received was invaluable. After graduation, I was working full-time in the business, meeting with clients, taking photos of listings, installing For Sale signs, creating brochures, going over contracts and sorting through paperwork.
While studying for the Real Estate exam, I also enrolled at Okanagan College and received a Certificate in Interior Decorating, allowing me to offer suggestions on furniture placement and visualizing your new space. It’s a little added “extra” that I hope you can benefit from! Allow me to help you ‘set the stage’ to sell quickly and for top dollar.
I love living in the Okanagan and enjoy everything this beautiful region has to offer. Each and every day I admire the spectacular backdrop of lake views, vineyards, orchards, sandy beaches and world-class skiing.
As a result of this passion, combined with my industry knowledge and years of experience, I am well-qualified to assist you with all your real estate needs. Serving the entire Okanagan Valley, I gladly travel from Armstrong in the North to Peachland in the South including Kelowna, Vernon and everywhere in between!
Why I work by Referral
Relationships are more important than transactions!
You may have noticed that many real estate agents take a transactional approach to sales—identifying clients, closing the deal, and then moving on to the next one. I choose not to work that way because I believe you deserve more from the professional you decide to work with. That is why I work by referral.
Since my primary source of new business are referrals from people who know and trust me, I can dedicate my time fully to the activities that benefit you most, and always deliver truly exceptional service.
AMANDA’S SPECIALITY: First Time Buyers
Unlike renting, buying a home is an investment that can appreciate over time, providing you with financial security later on in life. It will probably be the most substantial purchase you’ll ever make.
The satisfaction of making the ‘big buy’ can sometimes be spoiled by the confusion and hassle that comes along with it. I make it my duty to keep you well-informed, throughout the entire process. I’ll take extra special care of you from beginning to end!
I haven’t forgotten what it felt like to purchase my first home; I can relate to your fears and be patient while you explore the joys of home ownership.
“Amanda made our first time home buying so easy! She took the time to explain things to us carefully and made sure we understood every step of the process. We couldn’t have been happier and recommend Amanda to everybody we know!”
“Amanda helped me find my first home. She was devoted to ensure our complete satisfaction. She kept us up to date with all new listings, and was always available. Even after the purchase went through Amanda was very helpful with all those questions that seem to come up as first time home owners.”
“Hi Amanda, first off we just want to say thank you so so much for helping us out with buying our first home! We really appreciate everything you have done for us and realize that without your help the Project Build grant would have probably never been possible! Thanks again for everything and we will be sure to refer everybody we can to you!! Thank you!”
“Amanda did an amazing job helping us find our first home! Buying a house is a very stressful experience, so as first-time home buyers, Amanda helped us through every step of the process, giving us excellent advice along the way, and always made us feel comfortable. She helped us find a house that fits all of our needs, but never put any pressure on us to buy. She is very easy to talk to, and a great listener, and she demonstrated that she really had our best interests at heart. Amanda is an excellent realtor, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a home!”
AMANDA’S SPECIALITY: Lake View
Properties with views of Okanagan Lake, Kalamalka Lake, or even some of our smaller lakes sell at a PREMIUM PRICE! Buyers are willing to pay upwards of $50,000 – $75,000 or more for a home if it has a lake view.
AMANDA’S SPECIALITY: Horse Properties
The Okanagan is a wonderful place for horse people! We have beautiful trails throughout our local mountains, and the popular Mission Creek Greenway trail is open to riders as well. Being an Equestrian myself, I am educated in horse ownership and have ridden for years in both English and Western. I understand the features a property must have to accommodate horses. For example, did you know that the rule-of-thumb is typically no more than 2 horses per acre?
If you’re new to the wonderful world of horses, feel free to send me an email or give me a quick call – I’d be glad to put you in touch with some great trainers in the area.
