Where do I start with this wonderful Human ! She is everything you would ever want in a Real Estate agent and then some ! Witty, kind, hard working and ALWAYS on the ball! A true Gem in this industry - Julie Fisher
Stephanie was recommended to us from someone who did not actually close a deal but thought very highly of her. We met via computer to determine our wants to which she prepared a number of showings when we were able to schedule a trip from out of province. We originally wanted a condo but changed focus to a house. We picked one within a day and got our agreement with the sellers in a few short weeks. She was very accommodating and easy to deal with. As we were dealing on everything by phone and computer she was very responsive and easy to get answers from. Would and have recommended her to others. - Kelly Hudson
Reply: Kelly, I'm just so happy at how all of this turned out for you and Lisa as I know that making a purchase from out of province can be daunting at first. Congratulations on your amazing new property. Welcome to the beautiful Okanagan!
Steph was absolutely great. She is very intelligent and approachable. Steph answered all of our questions in great detail and gave excellent advise. Steph helped us find a perfect new home and sell our old home flawlessly. You can't go wrong working with Steph. - Daniel Paul
Reply: Thanks for sharing a bit about your experience Dan. I throughly enjoyed working with you and Maddie and couldn't be happier about how everything turned out. Congrats to the two of you not only on your new home, but on all the exciting events that are in your near future.
We have connected with Stephanie through friends who recommended her. We are out of town buyers, from Ontario and bought the property without seeing it. However, Stephanie addressed all our concerns and answered all the questions we had, and made us feel 100% comfortable. We have worked with many agents over the years, but in our experience, Stephanie was the most professional, organized and responsive agent we could ever ask for. We'll recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell, as she will provide them with the best service. - ILdiko Kronovitter-Hamilton
Reply: Thanks for this Ildiko as it really means the world to me. It's always special for TJ & STEPH Real Estate Group when we get to help amazing people who can't physically be here as it takes a certain level of trust that we feel humbled by. Congrats on being an Okanagan property owner! Exciting stuff!
Stephany and her team were amazing. They provided us with excellent service start to finish. She is very knowledgeable and is a highly skilled professional. We are so happy to have worked with her. Start to finish she had every detail worked out well in advance. We are so grateful to have worked with such an amazing agent. Best service in the business by far. You would be crazy not to work with Steph and her team. - Brittney Ann Vienneau
Reply: It was such a privilege going to work for you and your family Brittney. Thank - you for being so great to work with and for and all the best on your new adventure!
We have used many realtors over the years and Stephanie is by far the best! She expertly helped us navigate the purchase of our new home through COVID restrictions and a challenging real estate market. After a few conversations, she knew exactly what we were looking for and she was able to guide us through the process while we were shopping from a distance. When the right house came up, we trusted her completely and made an offer sight unseen. She walked us through the entire transaction and continued to follow up until well after our possession. We definitely recommend Stephanie and her team for all your realtor needs! - James
Reply: Thanks for sharing about your experience working with me James. It was such a pleasure getting to know you and helping you navigate the challenges of the busy COVID market and I look forward to a day (hopefully soon) when restrictions lift and we can all get together for a proper celebration. Congrats my friend.
We started our journey with Steph last year in 2020 and even though we experienced some hiccups along the way due to the crazy market conditions, Steph helped us navigate through the process from start to finish and ultimately exceeded our expectations. Her professionalism and expertise is apparent and knowledge of the industry is second to none. She is a dedicated agent and works relentlessly to help her clients achieve her goals. Her partner TJ was also great to work with and they would tag team to make sure one of them was always available to help when needed. We without hesitation would recommend Steph to use as a realtor to anyone looking to move or sell in the Okanagan. - Brittney Atkinson
Reply: Thanks for the kind words Brittney. It was such a pleasure working with you and Matt and we're so happy we were able to get your home sold and you're now getting settled into your new digs.
I started my Kelowna real estate journey with Stephanie in 2016. I have found through my entire experience that once she learns what you are searching for, she does an excellent job at staying on that path and guiding back to it if needed. She referred me to a fantastic mortgage broker among other affiliates. With their expert help and insight, we 'cashed up' in order to extend our portfolio. Recently Stephanie has been showing us the ropes of investment purchasing. It is not just about the numbers, and she is very well versed in this area of real estate. We went into another multiple offer situation with her in our corner, and won. We were able to quickly scoop up an outstanding income property in no time with her, in an absolutely insane market. Thanks to her, I now have a bit of an addiction! - Alison Ramsay
Reply: Thanks for sharing this Ali. It has been so amazing watching you build and grow your portfolio and I'm grateful to be a part of this with you. Onto the next one! :)
Stephanie is an awesome real estate agent. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. She is supported me virtually, helped me under at the market, find the perfect location and property to invest. I am thankful I had her on my team. Thank you Stephanie, let’s do this is again soon! - Donna Teather
Reply: Donna, thanks for putting your faith and trust in me. It was such a joy getting to know you and I'm looking forward to being your Real Estate Consultant, and friend, for life. Congratulations on your amazing new property.
We liked her thorough introduction to the process and the market. We appreciated her excellent negotiation skills and advice with making an offer. Our first offer was a success, and in the setting of multiple offers, her approach was instrumental in securing the deal. - Andrea Ross
Reply: Thanks for the kind words. It was so great getting to know and going to work for you and I can't wait to see your beautiful new home when it's all finished.
From the start to finish the service was impeccable. She is well versed with the info about the area, rental income that can be attained and more importantly helped us close the transaction very smoothly. Her partner TJ was extremely helpful as well. I would highly recommend them! - Senthil Thirugnana
Reply: Thanks for sharing a bit about your experience Senthil. Makes me happy to know you're happy with your investment purchase.
Working with Steph has been an incredible experience! Although TJ was our primary contact, it was so comforting to know that Steph was there when need be. Her past experience has allowed her to become the best in the business and it shows; it is un-parallel to any realtor I have worked with before. It truly is like having an expert realtor, mortgage broker and investment advisor all in one! If you think you know a lot about the industry, talk to Steph; it is a humbling experience and I was constantly left speechless. I can say with 100% confidence that we would not have secured our investment property if we working with someone else. I am so happy to have crossed paths with Steph and I look forward to working with her on the next one! - Blake Geoghegan
Reply: Thanks for the kind words guys. It has been such a pleasure going to work for you and TJ and I are just so excited for this savvy purchase you have made. Looking forward to the next one!
We hooked up with Stephanie back in October of 2019, I was pregnant and we had a 1.5 year old and we were looking to move to Kelowna. We visited with her signed everything up and went back to AB. She knew what we wanted in the areas we wanted and sent us listing pertaining to our needs. Then COVID happened, throughout the whole time of our search Stephanie did video tours for us and gave us important info related to the home either regards to amenities, schools and parks. She went above and beyond her call of duty and she truly had our best interests at heart, there was no pressure from her ever, it’s like she knew everything would fall into place once we found the home we wanted and it did! We closed the deal on our new build home in lake Country in August of 2020 and she was here at the house when we drove from Alberta to Kelowna with two kids and a dog to greet us, she even did the walk through on our behalf knowing the production it is of relocating our family. Stephanie is honest, incredibly knowledgeable, professional and truly gives a sh*t about her clients, their family’s needs both personally and financially. She was the best decision we made after deciding to move to Lake Country. Stephanie is not just our realtor but she is also our friend. I highly recommend her and her team and would definitely use her expertise again. Thx so much Steph you really are THE BEST. - Shirleen Ellerington
Reply: Thanks for the amazing review Shirleen. I have had so much fun to getting to know you and your family and I'm just so happy that we were finally able to get you moved and settled here in the beautiful Okanagan. Looking forward to spending some time together during your first summer here as a resident!
The definition of exceptional customer service is to be able to know what your client wants before they even do & to take away any stress or anxiety .. this is exactly what Steph did for my family & I. In Feb I reached out to Steph via rate my agent due to her incredible reviews. After our first meeting I didn’t even bother interviewing anyone else as I knew Steph would be the perfect fit. Coming from Toronto I was skeptical about purchasing a home in a location that I had only visited for 4 days of my entire life but Steph’s dedication & knowledge for real estate put my mind at ease, in fact we ended up purchasing our family home sight unseen as her due diligence to ensure you know everything about the property is second to none. Throughout the whole process Steph and her partner TJ were there for any questions we had & I have already referred the both of them to my mother in law. Coming from a sales background myself I tend to be very selective with sales professionals but I honestly can’t say any negative about Steph, she is incredible to work with & I highly encourage you all to reach out to her if your interested in property in the Okanagan. Thank you Steph for making our real state dreams into a reality! - Renee Stanton
Reply: Wow, Renee, thank-you for the kind and generous review. Working with and getting to know your family has been such a great experience for me and I’m just so excited for you and for the amazing adventure you’re on. The countdown begins and you’ll be poolside before you know it!
Stephanie is always very professional, efficient and knowledgeable. We have worked together on a handful of properties and each time the deals have always worked out the way we hoped. Highly recommended giving her a call whether you are buying or selling. - Chris Belton
Reply: Thanks for the kind words Chris. It's always a pleasure going to work for you as you know exactly what you want and you're not afraid to fight for it. I'm so pleased we were able to put together the recent sale of one of your properties and I'm looking forward to finding the perfect place for the money to be reinvested into.
My son and I have bought and sold investment properties with Stephanie over a number of years now. With Stephanie's knowledgeable advice, care and understanding of our goals we have had great success. We truly appreciate all her hard work and patience! We look forward to working closely with her and TJ in the future. - Darlene Alexander
Reply: Darlene, I truly appreciate you allowing me to play such a large role when it comes building your Real Estate portfolio as you continue to take steps towards your financial freedom. Not only are you an amazing lady and awesome client, bu you have become a valued friend. Congrats on all your success so far and here's to the next one!
Amazing experience with Steph! She is very knowledgeable and you can tell she really cares about her clients! Super helpful and honest in all homes we went to see - also shared a lot of past experiences which helped us make decisions. 10/10 will use again with future purchases! - Tim
Reply: Thanks for the 10/10 Tim. I think you and Jess are 10/10 quality people and I feel so fortunate that I was able to be a part of this experience with you. I'm looking forward to seeing the renovations when they are done and meeting the "soon to be" newest addition to your family. Thanks for being so great to work for!
I recently purchased 2 full triplex buildings with the tremendous help of Steph Ostash. It was a complex transaction involving a hold-back and several other unique contract clauses. She negotiated a very favourable purchase agreement and nearly $40,000 off of the asking price. Steph was unfazed by the deal’s numerous up’s and down’s, and provided excellent advice every step of the way. Her vast knowledge and expertise was extremely evident throughout the transaction, as she handled every new development and challenge like it was second-nature. Throughout this purchase as well as my past dealings with Steph Ostash, one thing has become very clear: she prioritizes her clients’ satisfaction above everything else. Whether it’s an investment property or a “forever home”, Steph has proven to me that she’ll do everything within her power to find her clients their perfect property. - Stirling Grassick
Reply: Stirling, we certainly had quite the adventure together on this one didn’t we?! I truly appreciate your level head throughout all our hurdles and the fact that you allowed me to do what I do best and navigate us safely through it for the big win. Congratulations on a truly rare investment find and purchase. What a spectacular addition to your portfolio. Now... onto the next one my friend!
Stephanie is the most professional and passionate agent we have ever worked with. She facilitated a cross-country move for my husband and I, and we couldn’t have done it, or started a life here in Kelowna without her help and attention. Post-deal she has been a genuine source of knowledge and help with whatever life throws us and we look forward with partnering with her and TJ for our next moves! Cant recommend her enough :) - Anissa Marcanio
Reply: Anissa, you and Mina have been such pleasant surprise in both my professional and personal life. Not only have you been wonderful clients but wonderful people. Anyone who knows me know I LOVE the before and after of renovation and wow, what you two are doing with your new home... it's already breathtaking and it's not even done. Looking forward to the big reveal when it's all done.
Stephanie found the property we were looking for and we are still enjoying it. We were shopping from a distance so it was more tricky to get exactly what we were looking for but she did it. - Nicole Rapacz
Reply: Thank - you for the lovely review Nicole. We had quite the adventure working together to find you the perfect South facing condo and... we did it. Thanks for being such amazing people to go to work for and keep in touch with.
Stephanie and TJ were incredible to work with - super knowledgeable, quick to respond and they were able to secure the purchase of our first investment property even with multiple offers! We would highly recommend this team and we are already working with them on our next duplex/fourplex investment acquisition. - - SALT Property Investments (Susan, April, Lisa, Tina)
Reply: Thanks Team SALT! You ladies are such a pleasure to work with and I'm looking forward to soon adding the next one to your portfolio.
Stephanie went above and beyond for us, both in selling our own home before listing to beating several others in buying our new home. Stephanie is highly gifted in the real estate realm and always had a clear plan in place for us which resulted in us achieving our goal. From the mortgage broker to the cleaners Stephanie has developed a network of high caliber people to get the job done. Our family would like to thank Stephanie for all the work she did for us and Recommend her services to anyone who asks. - Jerimiah Gribble
Reply: Thanks for the lovely review Jerimiah. It was really special for me to be able to sell your very first home, which I helped you buy a number of years ago, and help your growing family get into a beautiful new home with more space. You and Julia are such amazing people and I’m just so happy for you. All the best and until the next. :)
Stephanie was very professional from our first meeting until the close of the transaction. As an out of province buyer she made the process very smooth. she understood the market and I felt we received very good value for the home that we purchased. - Donald MacDonald
Reply: Thanks for the lovely review Donald. It was such a pleasure working with and getting to know you and Kim. Looking forward to a visit at your new ski chalet. :)
Stephanie is the BEST! Not only a friend, an amazing athlete, but an all round spectacular strong woman. She brings her dedication and competitiveness into whatever she does, especially her job! My house was sold before it even hit the market. Stephanie's professional and sauvy approach to real estate puts her at the top of her game! I would most definitely recommend her as an agent to anyone wanting results. The sky's the limit with Stephanie. - Nancy Nicholls
Reply: Nancy, you are too kind. Thank - you for such a lovely review. I'm so happy this all worked out for you as I'm really excited for this next adventure and phase of your life. Thanks again for being so amazing to spend time with and to go to work for.
Stephanie was recommended to me by a friend when I was expressing my interest in investing in real estate. I will forever be grateful for that recommendation! I have worked with realtors in the past (buying and selling my first condo, looking at real estate after) and I can't believe what a difference it was working with Steph. She helped steer my investment partner and I from a condo purchase to a single-family home which we will add a basement suite to. Steph is very thorough, full of knowledge, responsive to all of our questions, fun to work with, and you can tell she really lives and breathes what she does! I can't imagine working with anyone other than her and TJ from now on. - Amber Bahm
Reply: Wow, thank - you Amber. Because I had such a blast working with Chad, when he sent you my way I knew we would be a great fit to work together as well. I have to say that you were a perfect Real Estate Investor student. You asked so many great questions and took all of my advise which led you a great opportunity that is going to produce big returns. The best part is... because this strategy allowed you to put less money down and because this property will gain so much more equity at a more rapid rate, you will be able to do all again really soon! YAAS! Thanks for being a great client and for becoming an even better friend.
Stephanie went above and beyond while selling our home. She was always available for advice all along the way. We felt as though she genuinely had our best interest in mind throughout the whole process! Our home had an offer 2 hours after it hit the MLS! - Grace
Reply: Thanks for the kind words Grace. Being as busy as you are, I know how much you sacrificed in order to prepare your property for sale and I'm so glad that it all paid off for you. Thanks for being so great to go to work for; I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you.
Stephanie's professionalism and market knowledge are beyond compare. We were brand-new to investment realty, and she walked us through the process and educated us along the way. Stephanie's valuable insights made us feel very comfortable deciding on the perfect property when the right opportunity came up. Her warm, confident personality makes working with her fun and exciting. I would recommend her and her partner to anyone looking to buy or sell, particularly those interested in growing their portfolio. - Lindsey Eadie
Reply: Lindsey, I am so proud of you for taking these steps towards building a portfolio that will provide financial freedom. I always enjoy passing my knowledge onto young investors, such as yourself, and it's a total bonus when my clients turn out to be as cool as you are. Looking forward to continuing both our professional relationship and personal friendship we have developed. Congrats girl!
Steph was awesome, she knew the home and what it would take to sell. At first our first meeting she suggested extensive Reno’s which we did not want to do so we listed with another agent and the property sat and sat and sat. We then reconnected with Steph, bought into her plan, spent some money on Reno’s and reaped an amazing return on our investment. Steph planes the colours, helped pick out flooring and lighting. She got a a killer deal on a stager and BOOM! Multiple offers the first weekend. - Paul Deol
Reply: What a journey we have been on. As an agent, it can be hard to "turn down" a listing opportunity but I wanted to make sure I could deliver results and right away I could see that to produce the price you wanted, a few things needed to happen first. I'm so happy that when you came back around, you got on board with my vision and we were then able to get that place SOLD and produce an amazing ROI, making the hard work worth your while. It's all about setting the property up to show it's best light and appeal to the masses in order to bring the RIGHT buyer who will pay top dollar. Not only did we finally get the job done, but I have to say... we sure had some fun doing it, right?! Looking forward to our next Real Estate adventure together. :)
I recently moved from Toronto with the intention to buy an investment property in Kelowna. I'm glad I met Stephanie. She dedicated time to understand my needs and to show me several neighborhoods that would match my criteria. I felt in good hands, Stephanie proved her professionalism in every single step of the process. Her negotiation skills in particular are simply phenomenal! I'm extremely happy with my purchase and the price I got it for. You can't go wrong with her! - Paolo Dominici
Reply: Thanks for taking the time to share your experience Paolo. I had such a great time getting to know you and teaching you about the best location to see the best ROI on you investment purchase. I can't wait to see the renovation, when it's finished, and watch the cash flow start to roll in.
Steph was wonderful to deal with! She made an effort to get to know us an our family and fought to get us what we wanted. Steph is knowledgeable and fantastic at her job. We would highly recommend her! - Karen Smith
Reply: Awe, Karen. I'm so pleased that we were able to fight through all the challenges to secure the perfect property for your family. Excited for you to create amazing memories there. :)
Stephanie is an incredibly responsive, talented and accomplished real estate agent who works for you. She was strategic and provided recommendations at every step throughout the sale our home. She worked very hard to sell our home and get the best price for the current market. Thank you Stephanie! - Thomas Johnson - Thomas Johnson
Reply: I really appreciate your kind words. You took all my advice and put so much time, energy, and effort into getting the property prepped and ready for sale... it's no wonder we were able to get multiple offers and secure you a top dollar price. Thanks again for being so great to go to work with and for.
Stephanie was the ultimate professional for both the selling and buying of my properties. She was very certain of what needed to get done in order to sell my home and it sold in one day on the market. It was a difficult time for me and she was also extremely empathetic and caring. She could tell when I was uneasy with the process and would call me to see how I was doing after a showing or after doing the final walk through the day before i moved out of my home of 20 years. I would highly recommend Stephanie as she is the ultimate professional coupled with a caring and loving style. I knew she had my back. - Dana Hornibrook
Reply: Thanks for the kind words Dana. I feel so grateful to have been such a big part of this journey with you and yes, I always have your back. Looking forward to what’s around the corner for you.
As first time home buyers Stephanie took us to look at multiple houses. It took some time to find the perfect house but we finally found it and are very excited to have a home of our own. - Alec
Reply: Alec, I'm so happy that you and Carolyn can finally enjoy the perks of home ownership. I'm glad that you are happy with my electrician I recommended and as you know, I'm here if you need any additional referrals to trades or help with anything else moving forward. Congratulations!
Stephanie is a true professional and passionate about her work. From start to finish of our house sale process, Stephanie was there every step of the way to guide us. Stephanie got viewers through our home and kept us updated with feedback very quickly. Our home sold quickly and we cannot thank Stephanie enough! Would not hesitate to use Stephanie in the future and highly recommend her as your agent! - Dianne Purkis
Reply: Working with and for you was such a pleasure Dianne. You and your family are such wonderful people and I'm grateful I was able to be a part of your Real Estate journey as will officially secured the highest price sale of a pre-owned home in the Wilden area - thanks to those spectacular view and your beautiful decor. All the best to you on your next adventure!
I have had the privilege of working alongside Stephanie for a few years, so she was the obvious choice when I began searching for my first investment property. She went to work immediately and found me exactly what I was looking for. She was patient, knowledgeable and dedicated. So much so that she found me an off the market option before anyone else could get their hands on it! She will 100% be my first call when I am ready for my next investment property. - Keatin
Reply: Keatin, it means the world to me that you chose me, of all agents, to be YOUR agent. This one was a slam dunk and I'm here and ready to do it again - any time my friend.
Stephanie is by far the best realtor I have ever worked with. It was such a pleasure to work with her and we where so honoured to have her represent us through our search for a house. Super down to earth and easy to talk to. Very accommodating as we where out of town. She got us on to a video call with my wife, took us through the wide range of services her team has to offer. She gave us a video tour on the properties and neighbourhoods when we could not make it. She is a breath of fresh air. Truly not a realtor out for her own interests. She is not out to sell you any property available but rather a home perfectly suited for you. we could of easily bought a home in a bad neighbourhood but thank God when we finally came into the city, we where so thankful she shut down the homes that could of easily have been a buy gone wrong. Her team helped us get approved given the complexity of our case. She goes over and beyond in getting all the information needed to make you feel comfortable moving forward as a result of her experience. Stephanie you really exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much. - Mina Mekhail
Reply: Mina, It was such a pleasure working with you and Anissa and I'm so happy we were able to get you into the perfect new home. I can't wait to see what you two do with the place; it's going to be spectacular when the renovation is done. Looking forward to working together again soon!
Steph Ostash is a 12/10 in every way. She fights for you. She is patient - working with us wasn’t always easy and she simply nailed it! She is AMAZING!!!!!! We will use her for our next venture and recommend her to everybody! - Michelle Hester
Reply: Thanks girl! You and Steve were awesome to work with and I'm just so happy we got top dollar on the sale of your condo and then got you and your family into a beautiful new home where your little one will have room to play and grow. Enjoy momma; you deserve it!
Stephanie was professional and stayed the course through a challenging transaction. We had a challenging negotiation and we were able to work our way through it. Stephanie really stepped up when we needed her. We love our new property. - Cindy
Reply: Thanks for the kind words and glowing review Cindy; much appreciated. I'm happy to hear that you're happy. :)
We had a truly great experience buying a home with Stephanie as our representative. We purchased during the pandemic, and did so from another province, and in spite of these obstacles it was a very smooth and easy experience. She used technology very effectively to make sure we had a great feel for the properties we were interested in. We wound up purchasing a home our boys and we love before we ever set foot in the property, and did so comfortably knowing we could 100% trust Stephanie's opinion. We always felt that we had someone working towards whatever was best for us and our family. It could have been a difficult acquisition with the unusual obstacles, but it was essentially seamless. Highest recommendation possible for Stephanie. - Scott Ellerington
Reply: It's hard to believe that a whole year went by from when we first met/ looked at homes until your St.Albert home sold and you were ready to move, but when you were ready... you were ready and we made it happen - FAST - and it feel so great to see you and your family enjoying your beautiful new home. Congrats; You deserve it!
Stephanie has been amazing to work with. When I first started looking, I didn’t expect to succeed in buying a place in this amount of time. She’s extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I am a young home owner and she made the process stress free. I felt more as though she was a friend helping me rather than an agent just looking for money. She pointed me in the direction of great people to help with finding me a mortgage as well. I will definitely be using Stephanie in the future and recommend her to everyone I know. - Rachel Gross
Reply: Rachel, getting to know you was so much fun as I always enjoy the process thoroughly when a friendship is built. I'm so proud of you for making such a wise purchase and investment decision at such a young age... big things are ahead for you. :)
Stephanie was a delight to work with, knowledgeable and infinitely patient as we traversed our way through COVID required video chats and meetings and video tours Stephanie was also very gracious in allowing our friend to see the condo on our behalf, even after Stephanie had already videoed every inch of it for us I would happily work with Stephanie again and or recommend her to others - Karen Rowe
Reply: Karen, purchasing a property from another province without every physically seeing it can be stressful and tiresome so I'm very happy to hear you enjoyed the experience and are happy with your new Okanagan lakefront property. I had a blast helping you and Greg navigate through and I'm glad you will finally get to reap the rewards.
Working with Stephanie and the rest of the Vantage West team was a fantastic experience! Moving provinces with a young family is a very stressful time. Stephanie's expertise and confidence kept us calm, focused and excited through a very long journey. We highly recommend Stephanie for anyone looking for any sort of real estate need in the Okanagan. - Tracy Schooler-Demers
Reply: Tracy, thank - you for the kind words. This truly makes my heart happy as it's always my goal to eliminate stress and inject excitement throughout the process. Is was so wonderful getting to know you, Sean, and the girls and I'm thrilled that you're finally here, settled into your beautiful new home, and able to enjoy your new Okanagan lifestyle. All the best and looking forward to a visit soon!
Stephanie is absolutely amazing! Not only is she a beautiful person inside and out, she a one of the most knowledgeable realtors I have ever worked with. She made dreams become reality and I can’t thank her enough! - Barb Henderson
Reply: Thank-you Barb. I thoroughly enjoyed helping you make a plan to prepare and stage your home and all your hard work paid off when we got your home sold for full price. Thanks for allowing me into your home and into your life... can’t wait to come visit at the new place!
In a world full of hurdles, especially during this pandemic, Stephanie dedicated herself to the challenge and simplified the process. Her professionalism and knowledge surpassed other realtors I have dealt with, and she was able to answer any and all of my questions. Without any disappointment, I would highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying property in the future. - Bradley Campbell
Reply: Brad, I'm so happy that we were able to get your home sold for FULL PRICE prior to it actually being listed for sale, all while dealing with the challenges of COVID-19. Congratulations on the sale and I'm looking forward to the next adventure.
Through working with Stephanie I found her to be a true professional, friendly, extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She is wonderful to work with! She guided me through every aspect of the sale of my current home and the purchase of my new home. She gave me lots of great advice on preparing my current home to sell... It sold quickly for full asking price! She worked extremely hard to make the whole process seamless and easy, It was a great relief to have her working on my side! As she promised, she kept me updated with every important detail regarding my house sale and subsequent new home purchase. I asked her a lot of questions and she answered every one promptly. She kept me up to date with houses for sale in my preferred locations and price range. She worked so hard and everything worked out perfectly. I am moving into my new home soon! I sincerely appreciate all of your hard work Stephanie! - Mark Henderson
Reply: Mark, it has been such a joy start to finish and I can't wait for you and your girls to get settled into your new home so I can come visit. Thanks for the awesome review, it means a lot to me.
This is the second time we have worked with Stephanie to buy and sell a home. She is by far the most caring competent knowledgeable realtor we have ever worked with. She responds promptly to texts ,emails ,or phone calls and always has a positive uplifting attitude. Her professionalism is only exceeded by her kindness. You will not find a better or more trustworthy realtor in the Okanagan. Call Stephanie...you will not be disappointed. - Alan Niebergal
Reply: It was so great going to work for you and Jamie, yet again. It was quite the journey with many unexpected turns but... we managed to stay the course and everything came together perfectly. Congrats on the sale of you previous property and the purchase of your beautiful new home.
What a wonderful and professional realtor to work with. Stephanie helped make the buy and sell of our properties seamless. She coached us through the process of staging, marketing and preparing the sell of our home and took care of all the fine details that sometimes get overlooked. The purchase of our new condo was also made a whole lot easier because of her strong negotiation skills and eye for detail. Not all realtors follow up once the deal is done, Stephanie is most definitely the exception and truly wishes the very best for her clients. I without a doubt recommend Stephanie for your realty needs. Thank you for helping us make the transition to condo living, you have made it easier. - Robert Rae
Reply: Thank - you for the kind words Bob. I feel very grateful to have been a part of your Real Estate journey and just remember... For all things ReaI Estate related, I am always here to help, even after the sale it done and complete. Enjoy your beautiful new home. :)
Stephanie exceeds expectations of a real estate agent. She is passionate about it and lives and breathes it. I have worked with several good agents, but none who work as hard as she does. She has a wealth of knowledge, a warm and engaging personality, and has had our best interest in mind during our home search. With her, we now own the house of our dreams and couldn't be happier! - Alison Ramsay
Reply: Thanks for the kind words Ali. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with and for you over the years and couldn't be happier that we were able to get you and your family into the perfect new home. You deserve it.
Vantage West Realty is very fortunate to have such a beautiful, (inside and out), authentic, dynamic realtor on their staff. What an asset she is.....I would definitely recommend Stephanie to all aged groups. Her expertise her knowledge is so broad for such a young realtor. Stephanie was exceptional..... Thank you again, for the difference you have made in my life. Jeannine Dagenais - Jeannine Dagenais
Reply: Jeannine, thank - you for putting your faith in me. I know it was a HUGE step for you to purchase a property without ever physically seeing it, but we spent so much time getting to know each other and diving into your wants and needs... I knew I could make this happen for you. After telling you "no" to a number of your other choices (I knew they weren't right for you) when we finally did find the one, I had full confidence that it was the perfect place for you to call home. I'm so happy I was right and pleased that you love your new condo. Thanks for being a great client and becoming such a great friend.
Stephanie Ostash is an amazing realtor! She went beyond the call of duty to help us find an investment property. Stephanie even showed us a place that was about to go on the market at 10pm one night. She answered our texts day and night. Multiple offers were written without any complaints. She was a pleasure to deal with. Very personable and caring. I look forward to working with her again in the future. - Sabrina Lukkarinen
Reply: Sometimes a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do, especially when it's for amazing people, such as yourselves. I'm so happy that after putting all the work, we finally snapped up the perfect investment property to add to your portfolio. Thanks for singing my praises!
From beginning to end, I felt like I was being taken care of. Stephanie Ostash started off with a full assessment of my requirements and guided me every step of the way due to my lack of familiarity of the local market in Kelowna. In fact, it wasn't possible for me to be there physically so she made sure that every little detail was covered in order to give me a peace of mind. We encountered issues dealing with the seller but she still managed to navigate through them one by one and create a seamless process. Best thing of all is based on her superb negotiating skills she manage to get me a great deal. Thanks again for the phenomenal job! - Jeremy
Reply: Thanks for the wonderful review Jeremy. Yes, we had some hurdles thrown our way, but we did it. I can't wait for you and you family to see and enjoy your beautiful new Okanagan home! Thanks for putting your trust in me. :)
I previously tried selling my home with another agent and didn't have much luck. I was ready to throw in the towel when I met Stephanie and was impressed with knowledge and experience so decided to give her a shot, and I'm glad I did because she got the job done. She was here when I needed her, never missed any details and always went above and beyond. I highly recommend Stephanie to anyone who wants to sell their home! - Irene Mugford
Reply: Thanks for the kind words Irene. I know this was a difficult process for you, so I'm happy I was able to be your shoulder to lean on as we got your home SOLD so that you can move closer to and spend more time with your family.
Stephanie was fantastic! I have been buying and selling real estate for 15 years and I have never found a realtor so helpful. She was great at getting back to me, supportive and encouraging in every way. I am so impressed with her. - Brenda L Delint
Reply: Wow, thanks Brenda! This means a lot to me, coming from such a seasoned pro such as yourself. I was happy to pull out the big guns during negotiations in order to win in multiples offers, yet still get you a great deal on your new investment purchase all at the same time. Congrats on your new money maker!
We loved working with Stephanie. She was endlessly patient, showing us multiple properties. Stephanie’s goal is to make sure you find exactly the right property. Her insight and experience provided us with so much information we would never have had on our own. A consummate professional, unfailingly pleasant and a genuine pleasure to work with. Cannot recommend Stephanie highly enough! - Penny Ballantyne
Reply: Wow, thank - you for the glowing review Penny. You and Peter were so great to work with and it truly makes my heart happy to know we found you the perfect place to call home.
Stephanie is the BEST ! You will not find someone more knowledgeable and passionate about her career , I actually believe it is not a job to her she truly enjoys what she does ! Thanks for making our journey so easy ! Always above and beyond . - Julie Fisher
Reply: Wow, Julie... thank - you. This is so true, but it's easy to have a blast doing what I do, when I get to work with the most amazing people, like yourself. I'm glad we got your previous home sold for top dollar so that we could pounce on the perfect new home (the first day it came on the market), before anyone else had a chance to get to it. Enjoy my friend; you deserve it.
For our first time investment property, Stephanie held our hands the entire way. Her vast knowledge and expertise allowed us to be confident in this purchase even through the uncertain times of COVID. - David and Stacey Leahy
Reply: Such a pleasure working with you and David and I'm excited to see your portfolio continue to grow as you build a legacy for your boys. I'm glad you enjoyed the educational process which put us in a position to act quickly and snap up a rare opportunity when it presented itself. Winning all around!
Stephanie was fabulous. She SOLD our house during "Coming Soon" before the listing went live for FULL PRICE offer with the quick close dates we needed!!! HOW CAN YOU DO BETTER THAN THAT!!! Oh wait, you can do better than that... she also brought us wine to celebrate our accepted offer. We would recomend Stephanie to ANYONE! You can tell she definitely loves her job and is dam good at it. - James Coyle
Reply: Thanks James. What a journey we went on; it was a total blast and I’m so grateful to have become your trusted real estate advisor for many more real estate decisions to come.
Stephanie was amazing! She knew that I had an aggressive goal for the sale of my townhouse and not only did she make that happen, but we got multiple offers on the first day on the market! Thank you Steph!! - Krystina Rossworm
Reply: Thanks for the review Krystina. I'm really happy you agreed to take the time to finish the renovations and take the advise of staging as it truly does make a world of difference in making a house feel like a home for a buyer. You're amazing. Thanks for choosing me, of all agents, to be your agent.
Amazing agent, amazing experience. Top notch service and very knowledgable. Will be using Stephanie again for my next buy. 100% would recommend and refer anybody looking to sell or buy. - Cody Pointner
Reply: Thanks Cody. You were very specific in what you wanted and I'm glad we were not only able to find it for you, but then kick butt in multiples offers in order to actually GET it for you. Had a blast working together and looking forward to the next one, one day. :)
I struggled to find a professional and aggressive agent until I met Stephanie. She worked diligently through the slow winter season, trying to find the perfect property until one popped up. Her quick and eager approach landed an accepted offer and sale in no time! Would recommend and will use again. - Zack Pfob
Reply: Zack, I'm really glad that our aggressive approach paid off and we scooped up the PERFECT first home for you, before anyone else had a chance to even get inside and see it. As you know, I'm certainly not one to sit back and wait... if you want something, you have to find a way to make it happy, even when initially told "no". LOL. Can't wait to come check it out when you're done all your renovations!
Stephanie was great to work with! She understood our needs and provided up with lots of homes to view as well as education on what to look for to reach our goals. - Graeme
Reply: I always enjoy working with young first time buyers who are eager to learn and make wise decisions, with plans of growing a portfolio. Always happy to help, especially for amazing people such as Alexa and yourself.
If your looking for the best of the best, Stephanie will not disappoint. Every step of our selling and buying process with Stephanie was amazing. She always made herself available to fit our schedule and very speedy at answering any questions we had. Don't settle for second best, phone Stephanie at Vantage West. - Dairn & Julie - Dairn
Reply: Thanks Julie and Dairn! It's always so awesome when my team pairs me with clients who are just the perfect fit, as it was with us. I'm happy I was able to deliver a 5 star experience and build a friendship along the way. Love you guys!
Stephanie did a fantastic job helping us buy our first investment property. She was quick to answer any of our questions and if wasn't sure, she found out, and got right back to us. Once we decided on what we want, we had an accepted offer in less that 24 hours. Thank you again for all your hard work! - Mihaela and Laurentiu
Reply: I appreciate the kind words; thank - you. I had so much fun educating you on the market and helping you find the perfect investment opportunity for your family - looking forward to the next one!
Stephanie is a very knowledgeable, caring and organized agent. She values her clients and is always available for them. She is a very good negotiator as well. It was a pleasure to work with her. She also has a great personality. - Fereshteh Bahramian
Reply: Wow, so many compliments; thank - you Fereshteh. I really enjoyed getting to know you and your daughter, Dahlia, and I'm happy I was able to help educate you on the market as we moved through the process of getting you an awesome deal on your perfect new home. Thanks for being amazing and for being you. :)
We have used Stephanie twice now. She is BY FAR one of the BEST agents EVER! We will never use anyone else! Her plus the Vantage West team behind her is one of a kind service! We recommend them both in a heartbeat! We were taken care of from beginning to end and we are very happy in our new home. - Colette Wagner
