This is a little snippet of me, Jolene Iglesias, 2nd generation realtor, golf enthusiast, and pasta lover! I grew up in a small town called Chase, BC. Surrounded by beautiful lakes and cabins. Summertime was when everyone came to vacation, similar to the Okanagan. My mother started in real estate when I was 8 years old. I'm a proud second-generation Realtor. I’ve been around real estate my entire life and seen the hard work and dedication it takes to build a business. I’ve also seen the sacrifices and there were also many rewards as I later understood when I became an adult and now a realtor myself. I’ve been selling real estate in the Okanagan Valley since 2012. To say this has been easy is an understatement. I joined in a time where people weren't buying real estate. I was apart of a real estate team as a brand new realtor in a new city. Working hard to learn the business and make connections. Persevering through a down market and high interest rates. It’s all a part of the business they said. The juice is worth the squeeze. As a Realtor I know buying a home is the best opportunity you can make in your lifetime. I wasn’t going to give up on what I know to be true and helping people do that. I’ve been passionate about real estate my entire life and it wasn't until I understood that creating long lasting relationships was the key. Building relationships with my clients and maintain those for years to come. My business started to grow. I jumped, left the team and went on my own in beginning of the pandemic. I work hard to ensure that the home buying or selling process is fun, easy, and stress-free for my Clients. I pride myself in providing quality service. The decision to build my dream life in Kelowna was easy and I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. In my free time, I enjoy travelling, skiing, and I'm a pretty good golfer! I love having my friends and family over cooking for them, my heart is in the kitchen. Connecting with people is what brings me joy and it’s what leads me to real estate in this growing community. My mission is straight to the point: I love helping people buy, sell and market real estate in the Okanagan Valley. Licensed with Royal LePage Kelowna. I can't wait to meet with you to go over opportunities that exist for you in our local market where you're buying or selling. Let's get started!

We were impressed by Jolene's responsiveness since our very first encounter and it continued until after we completed our purchase. We truly value her knowledge and professionalism especially because we were out of town buyers and relying on her for insights on the neighborhood. - Jannet
Reply: Thanks for the 5 star review Jannet! When I have great clients it makes my job so effortless :)
Can’t say enough good things about Jolene! She worked with us on an estate sale. We live out of province and we chose Jolene because we saw other reviews about how well she handles situations like ours. We found her to be very responsive right from the first phone call. She came up with a great marketing plan, taking into account our wishes for a quick sale while maximizing the value of the property. Her knowledge of the local market was priceless, both with how to set the sale price and how to manage the incoming offers, bringing us an unconditional offer with quick closing which was perfect. She also continued to give great advice right through to the closing date, helping me find a local lawyer to handle all of the legal work required. We would definitely recommend Jolene, and would love to work with her again if the opportunity presents itself. - Bryan Hayward
Reply: Wow, thank you Bryan and Tracey for the glowing review!
Right from setting up our first appointment and meeting with Jolene the process was awesome. She is very professional. Jolene always kept in touch with us we were very happy she was our realtor. She made it a very easy process and an exciting one. We would highly recommend Jolene for selling your property. She was also generous with little extras for a personal touch. 😊 - Kelly and Colleen Preston
Reply: Thank you Kelly and Colleen, was super fun working with you! Looking forward to our poolside summer drink. Talk soon
I recently worked with Jolene on my first property and had a great experience! Jolene took the time to explain all the fine details to me. She was available for me whenever I needed and answered all my questions in great depth and with a lot of patience. She has a lot of experience in this industry and she will definitely help you close the deal. As an added bonus, Jolene has a fun personality and is extremely resourceful. She will go the extra mile to help you with tips and tricks, and will get you in touch with mortgage brokers, lawyers, etc if you require. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her and I would highly recommend her to everyone! She will be with you through out the process and beyond! - Prashant

Professional, effective and efficient. From the initial listing paperwork to multiple offers, Jolene kept us uptodate and informed during the process. She directed the staging of the property, then hired professional photographers encouraging buyers to view. With Jolene's vision and attention to detail, our property sold in one day, multiple offers over list price. If you're thinking of buying or selling, give Jolene a call. You won't be disappointed. - Beverley Iglesias
Reply: Thanks for the review Mom!
Jolene went above and beyond to help me sell my rental property, she is very educated in the current market conditions and came up with a plan to market and sell the property quickly and stress free. This is the second property that Jolene has sold for me and I will continue to work with her for my future real estate needs. Thanks Jolene - Danny Bantli
Reply: Thanks for the great review Danny! Pleasure working with you again :)
My husband and I have bought and sold at least 16 homes. Jolene is the most organized and professional person we’ve worked with. She lays everything out so there is nothing to forget or worry about. She has a good working relationship with trades to fix things and prep your home. I would recommend her in a heartbeat! - Janis
Reply: Thanks Jan! :)
My husband and I hired Jolene based off of a friends recommendation. We live in Toronto and was looking for an investment property in Kelowna. She was able to give us virtual tours of the units and background on the neighbourhoods. She was very knowledgeable and educated us on short term rental guidelines and market landscape to a point we felt comfortable purchasing the property remotely. I would most definitely recommend Jolene to anyone - Jane Weber
Reply: Thanks for the wonderful review Jane!
This lovely lady stepped in to complete a difficult Assignment of Contract. We were blown away at how efficiently Jolene handled every aspect of this sale. We were a bit anxious and unsure of this transaction as it was not a typical real estate deal. Jolene responded to everyone of our texts, phone calls and emails very quickly, and put our minds at ease by solving every issue thrown at her. You will be most fortunate to have Jolene on your team, if professionalism, care and genuine interest are important to you. Jolene has all of our future dealings, hands down, and we will most certainly recommend her to anyone we know. Thank you Jolene, for everything. T and R - Tina and Ralph
Reply: Tina thank you for the most amazing review!! :)
This is our second time working with Jolene and what a great experience again. She handled everything very professionally and tackled every obstacle with ease. We were well informed about all concerns quickly and the sale happened in a short period of time!! Very happy with the outcome! - Morne Smit
Reply: It was a pleasure! Thanks fo the great review Morne
I can't give enough positive feedback about my experience with Jolene. We have done two transactions with her this year and I can confidently say that without her expertise, neither of the deals would have come to fruition. Jolene has excellent communication skills. Real estate can be stressful, and she always responded to my inquiries quickly and made the time to help us. In an exceptionally competitive market, her savvy, hustle, and knowledge elevate her above others in her field. - Ericka Blechingberg

Jolene had excellent knowledge of the areas where we were looking for a home. She was extremely responsive in any information or other requests. She made viewing homes easy and the routes were thought out well. She did well to understand what we needed and work for us. We are so happy to be in a new-to-us home, especially given the time period we needed to buy a home. Jolene was great listening to us not wanting to get into the buying/bidding frenzy and we accomplished that! - Candace Happach
Reply: Thanks for the review Candace!
Jolene explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. We were in the Yukon when we bought the condo in Kelowna. It was a tough decision to buy a property without seeing it in person but Jolene helped us a lot. She was very reliable and honest about the property. She was professional and she never made us feel uncomfortable. Very organized person and she gets done things right away. We also liked how she presented our condo in the market when we were selling it. We got an offer the day after and we were really happy about. Highly recommend! - Charysse Gwen Dawal
Reply: Thank you so much for the outstanding review Charysse! It’s my goal to have all experiences turn out amazing, I’m so glad both of yours did! Jolene
Jolene was helpful in so many ways! She was always there to promptly answer any questions I had, she gave excellent advise on ways to increase the value with staging and was honest with every part of the way. I feel like she goes above and beyond and really cares about the people she works with. Thank you Jolene for all that you do for us! - Dallas Arthur
Reply: Thank you Dallas! :)
I cannot say enough good things about working with Jolene on the sale of my house, this was my first property so the idea of selling was a little daunting, I was unsure of what may or may not be needed of me, how it may affect my busy work schedule etc, however working with Jolene she made it absolutely effortless for me! She provided clear instructions of all requirements for me as the seller, she gave A+ advice on all aspects of the sale, she was easily reachable and would answer any question I had and it was clear she was extremely knowledgeable in her career! She made life easy and worked well around my schedule, once I decide to buy another home I will absolutely be using Jolene again, I would give her 10 stars if I could! - Ashley Chapman
Reply: Wow Ash thank you for the outstanding review! Look forward to working with you again in the future.

Always helpful and professional. Knowledgeable and friendly. Patient and always let us decide what we wanted to see or look at. Never pushy or forceful. Great listener and never interrupted a thought or sentence. Helped us buy a vacant lot in an area she was not familiar with but still handled the transaction smoothly. - Tammy Briggs
Reply: Thanks for the wonderful review Tammy you’re the best!
Jolene was awesome to work with. She was on top of everything that needed to be done when selling a mobile home. She took care of checking up on all permits, and was very quick to advise on any issues that arose. Jolene’s marketing was amazing, and because of her professionalism, and drive were instrumental in selling my home within days of our listing appointment. I would absolutely recommend Jolene. - Kristie Vincze
Reply: Pleasure working with you Kristie! Congrats on your sale and to your next adventure :)
We would list or buy with Jolene again and would recommend her professional services to all looking to buy or sell. She was the listing realtor for our home in kelowna and wrote our offer on the lit we purchased in S. Gulf Islands. Thank you so much Jolene. - Patrick Nugent
Reply: Thanks Pat for the great review! Pleasure being your Realtor :)
We were hoping to buy a new home, but weren’t quite ready to sell unless we had found the right home. Unfortunately the market we were in this wasn’t an option. Jolene helped us to list our home and we were successful at getting several offers. The process was smooth, she was knowledgeable and very responsive throughout for everything we needed. We are very happy in our new home. - Gillian & Chris
Reply: Thanks for the wonderful review Chris and Gillian. I’m so happy you’re happy!

Absolutely fantastic buying experience. Jolene was knowledgeable, hardworking, and willing to put in the effort to ensure the deal was made. We found ourselves in a multi-offer deal, but she got it done. Couldn't recommend her enough. - Dallas Chelick
Reply: Thank you for the amazing review!
Jolene met and surpassed my expectations of realtors. My target type and location of residence changed a number of times and Jolene was able to quickly adjust. She is forthright but very easy to work with and flags her opinions in easily accepted ways. My search for a home was a long process due to my particular circumstances so I had considerable time to assess Jolene as not only highly competent and personable but hard-working. I will recommend Jolene as a realtor whenever the chance arises. - Steen Blechingberg
Reply: Thank you for the amazing review!
Jolene, kept us updated to viewings and other sales of similar properties in that area. She used modern marketing strategies and with a successful ending. We had listed our property over the years without success. We definitely have experience in a good realtor vs one who was not as motivated to act on our behalf. She is extremely talented and knowledgeable in real estate. We would feel comfortable recommending her to future buyers or sellers. - Alicia Ann Bigland
