Meet the Real Estate Team

The mission of the BoKnowsHomes realty team is to provide all our clients with exceptional service, whether they are buying or selling a home or other real estate property. We accomplish this by always putting the needs of our clients first. Our sales and marketing efforts extend throughout the Okanagan, from the Shuswap country in the north to Osoyoos in the south.

For our Buyers, we always ensure that we understand what types of properties they are looking for and send regular updates by e-mail as soon as new properties hit the market. If you are from out of the area, we ensure that you are familiar with the different neighbourhoods and the locations of different types of facilities that you are interested in. We will give you a tour of the area to ensure that you are familiar with Kelowna. We will show you all the homes that may be of interest to you. When you make your decision, we will provide you with professional advice, negotiation skills and ensure that all the necessary details are taken care of. Our service doesn’t stop with the sale and you can come to us for any information or advice you require at any time..

For Sellers, we provide a “Right Price Market Evaluation” based on market activities in your area and expected market trends. We provide the most aggressive and sophisticated marketing plan in the business to ensure that your property gets the best possible exposure. We monitor all showings of your property and provide you with follow up and updates on all showings. We help you negotiate the nest price for your property and we ensure that all the details of the sale are taken care of professionally. Our goal is to sell your property fast and ensure you get the best possible price for it.

As a realty team, we can always ensure you continuity of service and ensure there is always someone there to take care of your needs. We can provide you with different ideas and opinions and different approaches, depending on your requirements. We are all committed to give you the level of service that we would like to expect from people doing business with us.
