We have bought and sold many homes and thought some of the real estate agents who helped us were quite good but no one has ever come close to the kind of service, knowledge, warmth or negotiating skills that Gayle Thiessen at Vantage West Realty showed us. She went above and beyond (contacting an inspector for us, reaching out to the lawyer, sending step by step instructions and reminders to us) making every step of the process effortless and stress-free. There is truly no one better to have on your side!

Amy and Amanda are great. They worked hard to sell my home and find me a new place, in a time crunch, that suited my needs and was within my budget. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

It was an extremely great decision to make the switch to Vantage West Realty. When I met Amanda and Amy the first time I could see how much enthusiasm they both have for selling homes. Vantage West Realty is an amazing professional team to have when selling your home. I definitely felt having Heather come by to give her advice on staging a home was very helpful. I am very grateful for Amanda and Amy. I absolutely appreciated their commitment and professionalism. They both went over and above my expectations to sell my home. Amanda and Amy made my dream come true. Thank you! I am so very happy I can now retire in the wilderness. - Coralea Banning

Evan Graham worked with AJ Hazzi in 2023.
I'll start by saying this is the first time I've written a bad review on Google. I cannot express my dissatisfaction with Vantage West Realty. We have raised multiple concerns over the year, for which we've received delayed responses, deferral of responsibility and inappropriately addressing our issues. This includes but is not limited to leaving our unit with a broken furnace for over 2 weeks in January and our unit persistently sitting at 14 degrees. There are many excellent real estate companies in Kelowna. This is not one of them and I would highly dissuade you from considering them.

Kiri is the best realtor I have ever worked with! She is patient, kind, helpful, knowledgeable, and diligent. She quickly learned what aspects of a home were important to me and helped me find my dream home. She is great at keeping me up to date about what's happening, and she has been a fantastic advocate for me throughout the process. My situation was a little challenging, but she found solutions to every difficulty we encountered. I cannot recommend her strongly enough. I hope this home is the last one I ever need to buy, but if I do decide to move someday, I would not want anyone but Kiri to be my realtor.

My husband and I were looking for an investment property and came across the Aqua project in Kelowna. Once we did our research we contacted Aqua by Mission Group and they got us in touch with Tyler Waldron. As this was our first experience dealing with pre sales Tyler took the time and explained everything to us, answered his calls whenever we had any questions and reassured us on any doubt we had. We have dealt with many realtors before but we’ve never met a guy like Tyler. He helped us so much through the entire process of the presale and even DROVE all the way from Kelowna to Vancouver to pick up the deposit cheque. Tyler we appreciate all your help. Your marketing strategies, negotiation skills, and attention to detail made the process easy and lucrative for us, and we couldn’t be happier we chose you to be our realtor and can’t wait to work with you again.

Amanda and the Vantage West team made selling our townhome a quick and stress-free process! The team was there to answer all of our questions and made the sale easy and seamless. Amanda is super friendly and prompt to reply to our messages and calls. She was able to sell our place for asking price in a matter of a few days! We couldn't be happier with Vantage West and only wish we weren't moving out of Kelowna so they could help us find a new place :)

Amanda and Amy--Team Amazing! Selling a house during a bit of a difficult time for me was made 100% easier with Amanda and Amy as my realtors. Our house was listed in a buyer's market and we had an accepted offer in two days. The house was impressively marketed by the Vantage West team and the deal closed three days early for full asking price. Amanda was there every step of the way and was professional yet understanding and answered my questions promptly and knowledgeably. Amanda and Amy came to my house a few times because I had questions and they were happy to help me in new territories. If I could give them more than a five star review, I would and I will only recommend them if I know anyone buying or selling a home!

Jenn took a chance on me when I moved to Kelowna. Too many landlords are quick to dismiss people in their early 20s just trying to make it. I'm engaged to the love of my life now, who I would not have met if Jenn hadn't worked so hard to find me a suitable rental. Good luck on future endeavors Jenn!

So I have been living in my apartment for about 8 months now and I cannot be any more grateful to the team at Vantage, specifically to Darcy and Mike. They really did go above and beyond to help me find a place last summer. They were both very professional but also saw me as a person and not just someone buying a property. Huge thanks to Mike for helping me look around Kelowna for the right place and for just being a really nice guy, couldn't have asked for a better person! I would not hesitate to recommend them if you are looking for a place to live around the Kelowna area or anywhere they work as they are probably one of the best in every way in the business.

Amanada and Amy were an absolute pleasure to work with. Very professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. They worked hard for us to figure out what we wanted in a home, and they nailed it. Great job ladies! I would definitely recommend Amanda and Amy. Amanda and Amy were friendly and upbeat upon our very first meeting and maintained that energy, even though there were a few hiccups. They were prompt to respond, gave us expert advice and kept us up to date on the whole process, from showing reviews to sale progress. They were a joy to work with. Definitely recommend them

11/10!! Huge kudos to Elaine, who feels like the angel of an aunty who will always be there for you. She will explain, plan, arrange, guide, and listen genuinely at the drop of at hat. As someone who is trans, autistic, and a young mom, she was the sweetest, cheerful, and most accommodating person I could have ever wished for! You can tell she really loves her job and absolutely beams when she's able to find something that fits just right. There was no pressure, no fear, and she was happy to wait as long as I needed at any stage in the process. I recommend her to everyone and hope life's been treating her as kindly as she treats the world <3

We enlisted Nick Hazzi to help us find a home in November of 2022. We had time on our side and Nick helped us in our search; after over 100 days we found a property. Nick negotiated a price that we didn't even think we would get accepted. As of mid March we are preparing our new home to move into! Unlike any agents we have dealt with in our previous 7 home purchases, we never felt pressured into offering. Nick gave us his honest opinion regarding any properties we looked at. After making an offer and receiving a counter that wasn't to our liking and our subsequent counter not being accepted, Nick did not push us to reconsider, and we walked away. The home we did choose was purchased at a great price only after Nick suggested what we offer (we assumed a counter would follow) but Nick's strong negotiating skills were proven and our offer was accepted! Nick's home office team/affiliates always were there for us as required to give us feedback and responses. In addition, all of the professional and tradespeople that we sought that were recommended by Nick were competitive and great to deal with. Nick should create a realtor 101 course on How to Make Your Customers Repeat Customers (but then if he did this, his competitors would have the edge he currenlty monopolizes). A very genuine and honest realtor deserves this very genuine and honest review. John and Caroline

Simon and Riely are both professional and effective. For example, Simon successfully sent back and forth, negotiating the other side down without bothering me while I was on vacation and then presented me with their best offer once. I can't tell you how helpful it was to work with such an experienced agent. Riely prepared all the paperwork and tracked all the details so that what got sent to me was correct. I saved every file and now have a complete record.

Kiri was truly exceptional. Upon meeting her I was impressed with her level of knowledge, professionalism and transparency. As a young, first time home buyer, she went above and beyond by providing me with guidance, education and patience. Kiri ensured my needs and wants were met, acknowledged my timeline and respected my budget. Her kind and friendly demeanor makes her very personable to work with. Kiri takes the time to listen and get to know you as a client. She thoroughly explained the process of having a realtor, viewing homes, and buying a home. Kiri always made herself available by text, phone call, or email and answered my questions in great detail. Upon buying, she took the time to review strata documents and made sure I understood everything. Kiri always double checked that I was comfortable with my purchase and did not make me feel pressured. When hiccups (that were outside of her control) arose during possession, she remained calm and made my concerns feel valid while handling them with the utmost attention and care. Kiri is very hard working and I am so grateful for her help and support during this process. I highly recommend her to anyone - all ages, all sizes of families, at all stages of their life!
