This is the second time I have worked with Fil to sell my home and I would highly recommend him. He has a very personable manner that coupled with his professionalism, makes him a real pleasure to work with. I was not in the province while the sale process proceeded, which meant that Fil had responsibility for managing the security of my home and ensuring that it always had a fresh feel to it. I was thrilled with the timing of the sale and all aspects related to it - the entire experience was worry-free. Thank you Fil. - Jennifer

Reply: Thanks so much, Al! You’re easily one of my favourite builders to work with!
The thing that I liked about dealing with Fil is that he had a plan in place to deal with anything during the selling of my acreage home and buying a condo. The sale had multiple offers at top dollar and we received 99% of our asking price. On the other end he managed to talk the seller's into taking my first offer. I was in disbelief when he called me and said, "congratulations they accepted your offer." Hell ya I'll use him again. - Sukki Bining
Reply: Amazing! 😂 Thank you Sukki. I can't wait to work with you in the future!

Fil and Jane were both very professional and knowledgeable. They were upfront with us about our options and gave us good advice. We had a couple times where we wished Fil got back to use a bit quicker but overall he did a good job representing us. - Ben Heggie
Reply: Hi Ben, thanks for the review and for the honest feedback. Jane and I have worked hard to add additional systems to make us even more available to ensure a quicker response time. I completely understand when you’re dealing with a major financial decision such as buyer if or selling real estate it’s already stressful enough and when you want someone to talk, the sooner we can reply the better.
Fil was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He went above and beyond expectations and made the whole process so seamless and stress free.

Reply: Thanks 🙏 to you both. So excited to get you into your new home!
Our previous Realtor experience trying to sell our house was dreadful - flashy shoes and a nice car do NOT sell houses! The agent only had excuses, not solutions and we eventually took the house off the market. We then interviewed 4 other agents one of whom was Fil. What a breath of fresh air... Expert advice on everything from tidying up to pricing. When our original buyer pulled out we thought we'd be back to where we started but no, Fil and the team had more opportunities lined up and within about 45 minutes we had a new offer - for more money than the original and over asking. Fil and his team were professional and unflappable at every step of the way. - Tim
Reply: Thank so much Tim and Lucy!!! Congratulations on the over list price sale!
Fil was a pleasure to work with. Always very professional and someone we really connected with & were able to have fun & joke around with (important for me when buying & selling real estate as it can be high stress situations). He was super knowledgeable and always acted with our best interest in mind. I would highly recommend Fil to anyone looking to sell or purchase a new home! - Jill
Reply: Thanks Jill!! So excited for pool season!

Reply: Thanks Dean. So happy we were able to get you sold in this difficult market.
After interviewing a few agents, we decided to hire Fil for the sale of our property. Fil offered good advice on property values in the area (in a depressed market, and also recommended options for listing and selling. Fil advised us that he would first approach some buyers he knew to attempt to sell the property even prior to listing it on MLS. Fil was able to sell the property for a fair price within about 2 weeks, even before it was listed on MLS, saving us considerable staging costs and other headaches associated with showings / open houses etc. Will definitely recommend Fil and his brokerage, Vantage West, to anyone buying or selling in the Okanagan. - Paul Sandhu
Reply: Thanks again Paul. It was such a pleasure working with you!

I would not hesitate to recommend Fil to anyone looking for a home in Kelowna! His expansive knowledge of the area, along with the time and care he took to understand our needs, led to us finding the ideal home.

Reply: Thank you Bev. Happy to bring you a couple of offers. It’s always nice to have a couple choices. Lol
Being in the real estate industry myself, I have a level of service I expected, during my own purchase. Fil not only exceeded every expectation I had for him but at every stage in the process surprised me with service I didn't even know would be offered. Fil and his team were so thorough and detailed and always one step ahead of everything, which made the purchase process so enjoyable. Although, I know the home buying process inside and out, I couldn't believe how much I valued being in such capable hands, knowing that I could sit back and every last detail was being taken care of. If you are a First Time Home Buyer or a savvy purchaser, I am confident in saying that Fil and his team are the right fit for you. - Jill Gruen
Reply: Thank you sooo much Jill. You're one of the best Mortgage specialists in the Okanagan! The fact that you chat with Realtors all day long and you choose me and my team to help you purchase an investment for your family was beyond flattering. Thank you for your trust. I can't wait to work with you in the future! - Fil
