The Okanagan Valley was a vacation area our family visited almost every summer when I was growing up. Then when I was 15 I visited The Vernon area for the first time and for some reason I felt like I had found home even though I grew up in the Fraser Valley. This set the stage.
I have now lived in the Vernon area for about 40 years! My husband grew up here and we have raised our two sons, Dan and his brother, in this beautiful valley enjoying all the regions many special features.
My enthusiasm and knowledge of this area are here to help you find your special home or help you sell your property.
I have had extensive experience buying and selling North Okanagan properties, and have been recognized with the DIAMOND and PLATINUM AWARDS as a high producer.
It is my practice to advance my real estate knowledge through courses offered by the British Columbia and Canadian Real Estate Boards, and our local Okanagan Real Estate Board.
I truly enjoy assisting my client’s in fulfilling their real estate needs.
I was born and raised in Vernon, and even as a young boy, I felt fortunate to live in such a beautiful place. I grew up taking full advantage of the natural amenities in the Okanagan, filling my leisure time with swimming, snow and water skiing, hiking, fishing, camping, biking, and several team sports.
After graduating from Clarence Fulton Secondary School, I took my private pilot training and eventually followed it with my commercial pilot certification. In the meantime, I met and married my wife, started a family, and progressed in my 10-year sales and marketing career with a large construction company in Chilliwack, BC. During this time, bought and sold investment properties, fuelling my passion for real estate and the entire transaction process.
In 2005, I fulfilled a decade-long dream of attaining my real estate license, and I dove into a fulfilling career that combines my deep interest in the real estate market with my passion for working with people and helping them achieve their goals. I moved back to Vernon in 2007 with my wife and two daughters, and I joined Judi Reinhardt, my mother, in her thriving real estate business. Since then, we have been top achievers in our field, and each year I have earned PLATINUM and GOLD AWARDS as a high producer. In the constantly-changing world of real estate, I develop and enhance my skills by taking courses offered by the Real Estate Boards, and by my own interest-driven research. My life and career resonate with the popular saying, “Why go to work, when you can go to play!” I thoroughly enjoy using my experience and knowledge to make my clients’ real estate adventure a pleasant event!
