Shoot for the Kamloops’ Realtor Stars

When you’re on the market for a new home, an experienced, reputable realtor can be your greatest ally. A good one will know the ins and outs of the neighbourhood you’re looking to buy in, will understand the current market trends and will have a solid grasp on new legislation that will affect your ability to obtain financing.

Along with their “on-paper” qualifications, there are a number of intangibles to consider when looking for your ideal real estate agent. Really, you should see the process of looking for an agent as similar to dating because you are going to be spending a lot of time with this person: sometimes spending entire days with them as you drive to showings and meet in coffee shops to talk through decisions.

The Okanagan’s hot real estate market has created an array of highly qualified and knowledgeable real estate agents, many of whom are vying for your business. But how do you go about finding the agent who you’ll click with and who will also support you in making the right home purchase?

Asking friends and family for recommendations is a great place to start. If you don’t know anyone who’s purchased a home recently (and even if you do), we recommend consulting this handy directory that Kamloops Matters has created.

Here, we profile some of the top real estate talent in the region, who, collectively, have helped buyers purchase hundreds, if not thousands of homes.

Happy house-hunting!
