Kelowna keeps getting better

Wolf Krieg has been with RE/Max for 30 years now and still going strong!  Very impressive as I have only heard how hard it was to be successful back in the day here in Kelowna. Wolf is still very much enjoying helping his clients find their dream home.  His son Colin Krieg is well on his way there too, as he has already marked over 10 years with RE/Max.  Both of these gentlemen know they couldn't have done it without the help of the beautiful and talented Julie Krieg. Know that you be well taken care of by the Krieg Family if your buying or selling a home. Visit their website to see why they are successful plus you can watch their educational and hilarious market updates. http://www.wolfhomes.com/

Over and over I write about Accelerate Okanagan cultivating the world's most fertile environment for technology but what does that mean? How do they do it? What makes them stand out from other accelerators? These are all common questions that they get on a regular basis.  Well stop wondering because on November 15th you can go see for yourself how they're leading the growth of the Okanagan technology industry by giving entrepreneurs and businesses the levels of competence, connections, and community they need to thrive locally and be recognized internationally. https://www.accelerateokanagan.com/community/events/what-we-do-info-session6/?eID=1102
