About Jody

Thanks so much for taking the time to view my website.  Having lived in Kelowna for over 20 years, and having worked 11+ years as a full time realtor®  I know the Kelowna real estate market and all of the Kelowna sub-areas inside and out.  Though this is important, other crucial skills I bring to the table are my ability to negotiate you the best deal (I have taken courses on the matter and have a wealth of negotiation experience) and my ability to break down the transaction process into a simple, step by step process.  Often I see realtors® assume that the client (you) should understand the buying &/or selling terminology and the various steps involved.  In some cases my clients do know this, but generally buying &/or selling a home is not something they do on a regular basis……for example, some of my clients have lived in their homes over 20 years, so selling is both an emotional and complicated undertaking.  Prior to signing any contracts, I ensure that we are on the same page and that any concerns you have regarding the listing/ selling process are addressed.  As buying or selling real estate is one of the biggest and most expensive ventures that most people make, I want to be sure they are excited (and confident) about the process.

When buying, selling, or considering your next move,  I’m here to ensure you are looked after and that all the details are taken care of.  Contact me anytime if you want to talk real estate.  If you weren’t referred to me, and came upon my website by chance, please check out my testimonials/ client reviews section.

A bit more about Jody:

-I grew up in Nakusp, BC and graduated high school in 1996.  From 1996 to 1998 I attended Okanagan University College where I took Business Administration with courses specific to marketing and management.

-Some of my interests include golf, hockey (LA Kings fan), skiing, reading and listening to audio books (mostly biographies and business books), working out and spending time in hot places.

-Supporting charities is something I enjoy doing.  Portions of every real estate transaction I do go directly to two charities.  The first charity is Children’s Miracle Network and the other is a local charity that supports causes in the Okanagan.  Some other charities I make regular donations to are: War Amps, Canadian Cancer Society,  The Terry Fox Foundation and 100 Men Who Give A Damn (a group of Okanagan men who each support a local cause on a quarterly basis).
