Navigating through the 2nd wave
The uncertainty of March and April is back. Sellers want to sell but are once again edgy about looky-lous coming into their home. Inventory is down, but buyers are still buying - multiple offers are happening. How can you make your property available but minimize your risk? Solution: provide such comprehensive detail and visuals that only the most serious buyer makes it into your home. It’s what we do best.
Buying? Go to Buyers: What We Do.
We’ve been doing High Definition video tours of our listings for 10 years. The response from Sellers and Buyers is overwhelmingly positive. Buyers decide on their computer if the property is for them. Add to that, our information brochures are customized for each listing - and full of detail. Combined Sellers don’t experience excessive unnecessary showings. When Buyers do view the property in person it’s because they’ve short listed it and are there to confirm what they concluded from what they've seen online.
Our tours are unlike most others - you actually feel like you're walking through the property. And you won't see us promoting ourselves in the video. Just the property with a music soundtrack added.
Mike and Jaclyn - Who we are
Mike has been selling real estate in Penticton since 1992; Jaclyn was licensed in 2003. Working together as a team since 2010 both are multiple recipients of the Royal LePage Diamond Award, presented to agents who are in the top 3% in their marketplace, as well as the Director's Platinum and President's Gold Award. Mike is a lifetime member of the Award of Excellence, having achieved consecutive awards over a 14-year period. Between them they have handled over 1,100 transactions during their careers.
A graduate of the University of Prince Edward Island with a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in political science, Mike had a 13-year career in the newspaper industry as a reporter and editor starting in Nova Scotia, culminating as the managing editor of the daily Penticton Herald before entering into real estate. Father of five, he raised his family in Penticton and now has nine(!) grandchildren. A hobbyist photographer since his high school years, Mike finds real pleasure in the photography and video aspects of real estate.
Born and raised in Kimberley, BC, Jaclyn is a graduate of the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Science in Geography. She started in real estate in 2003, leaving in 2006 to have her son Erik. She came back into the industry as a mortgage broker for two years before reinstating her real estate license to team up with Mike in 2010. Jaclyn has a strong interest in design, currently taking an Okanagan College course that she hopes will lend to her input in staging clients' properties. She and her husband Jason are avid skiers and own a townhouse at Apex.
