When something is right, you know it.
Originally a small town ‘tom boy’ from the Kootenay’s, Steph’s Real Estate knowledge started very early on as her Grandfather was a builder/ developer and her parents were always buying, renovating, renting, selling and showing her that property is not only a place to live but, when done right, a true financial asset with the means to take her wherever she wanted to go.
Steph's true passion for Real Estate was ignited at the age of 19 when she started selling custom homes for the largest builder in Calgary. Young, ambitious, and full of fire, this was the same year she started investing in a real estate portfolio of her own, which has continued to grow and now contains a number of different property types and in different locations.
In 2007 when the Okanagan outdoors called her back to BC, she enjoyed the new challenge of building her business, as a mortgage broker, in a time of economic crisis. Hard work doesn’t scare this girl and she certainly knows how to get the job done.
After being head hunted by the largest Media Company in the Okanagan, she quickly became their top Marketing Consultant specializing in business growth and customer relationships. After five amazing years and working closely with some of the top Real Estate agents, brokerages and developers, to help develop and grow their marketing reach, she could no longer delay the inevitable… Steph just couldn’t give up her love affair with Real Estate and eventually made her way back.
In 2015 Stephanie was fortunate enough to be welcomed into a small boutique brokerage which specialized in investment Real Estate and, in her first year, she gave the top producing agent a run for his money and then took home the “World Class” award. Stephanie truly believes that anything worth doing is worth doing right - the first time.
After taking some time away in 2018 to fulfill a life goal of working in a Real Estate coaching/ leadership role, Steph returned back to what she loves most… working with her amazing clients and helping people turn Real Estate dreams into Real Estate realities.
Steph can now be found at Canada’s Real Estate company, Royal LePage Kelowna, as one of the founding partners of TJ & STEPH Real Estate Group. After forming an organic partnership with TJ Dumonceaux, another high achieving and client first minded agent, they realized that two heads are better than one and they are now working together providing a whole new level of service to all their deserving clients. TJ & STEPH Real Estate Group is not only the recipient of a Red Diamond award, putting them in the top 2% of Royal LePage Kelowna, but in 2020 Steph received the honour of being the #1 rated agent in all of Kelowna and snuck into the top 10 in Canada with the #9 spot.
When Stephanie isn’t busy educating and helping her clients build financial freedom through buying or selling their next property, you can attempt to find her spending time with her amazing family, racing down the mountain on her downhill bike, practicing up on the piano, volunteering at the Kelowna Gospel Mission or hosting a local charity event.
She believes the greatest opportunity investing in real estate allows for… the financial means to truly live your dreams and do what you love.
Stephanie's exceptional communication skills won me over within the first few minutes of speaking to her by phone! She was professional and knowledgeable about current market trends. Her thoroughness and attention to detail were outstanding. Stephanie was quick to respond whenever I reached out. She has great negotiation skills and was successful in bringing a previously interested buyer back with the winning offer. She has the ability to make the whole process an enjoyable experience! I would highly recommend Stephanie to represent you in your next real estate transaction! Thanks again Steph and team for your hard work!! :) - Dan Friesen
Reply: Thanks for the glowing review Dan! I am so grateful that you put your faith and trust in me when it came to the sale of your luxury home. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you and Mandy as we worked together and not only was I pleased to bring and negotiate you an (almost) full price offer within the first 24 hours but I had a blast doing it! Thanks for following all my advice and giving me the freedom to do what I needed to do to get the job done. Congrats on the sale and all the best on your next adventure.
We found Steph on this website and it’s no wonder she is listed as the top realtor - she helped us with every step of selling our home, including advice on home updates, contractors and staging! Steph knows and understands the real estate business very well, was extremely professional, a great communicator, and was even able to tolerate my husband (thank you for not firing us…I know it was close at times:). Most importantly, she delivered on our #1 priority - get our house sold quickly and for a solid price! Thank you Steph! - Chris and Christy Helmink
Reply: Christy, you are all too kind. Having the opportunity to get to know both you and Chris and go to work for you was truly amazing. I'm so happy I was able to be there for you during this process and I appreciate all the laughs we had together. My only regret is that I didn't get to taste any of that world famous pizza Chris makes. LOL. Congrats again and all the best as you and Chris go back to where it all began.
Steph was an amazing agent! She was so great at communicating and was really informative. She consistently kept us up to date, and really made sure what we were buying was the best fit! I would highly recommend Steph for any real estate needs you have. - Paige L
Reply: Miss Paige! Thanks so much for taking the time to share a bit about your experience working with me. I always love getting to work with new amazing clients, such as yourself, who are referred to me by my other clients who have had a great experience with me. You were such a joy to get to know as worked together and it makes me happy to see you happy as you head into this next chapter of your life. Congrats on your new home! Looking forward to a visit when you're all settled in!
Amazing experience dealing with Steph. Very transparent when it comes down to business and this made the transaction smooth. It was a pleasure dealing with this level of professionalism on every level. Great connections with other services needed to finish the sale on time. Always worked around my schedule, she puts her clients first. I highly recommend using Stephanie for buying and selling. - Alex Franklin
Reply: Thanks for the glowing review Alex. I had such a blast getting to know you through the process of working together and I’m so excited for you as you move on to this next chapter.
She honestly held my hand the entire time when buying my first home. And when things got tough she was there to listen. I never felt more supported in anything in my life. She made a scary experience feel safe and secure. The step by step process made it so much easier. Always available via text and call. Very grateful for her team and her hard work. She even had the house cleaned for me when I got there. Recommending to all my friends. One of the best people you’ll ever meet. - Stephanie
Reply: Wow, Stephanie... you're too kind. I'm honestly so excited that we were able to find and secure you your very first home. Not only it is perfect for you... it's a killer investment that's going to produce huge gains and provide ample opportunity for you down the road. Thanks for being so sweet and easy to work with. Getting to know and assist you has been a true gift.
Stephanie and her crew have been top notch professional and without a doubt would recommend her (and crew) to anyone interested in buying or selling. She responded to our list of needs/wants with listings to view and scheduled them within a couple of days. She provided information about how her and her team operate, what we can expect from them and what they expect from us. It was clean and clear, productive and easy... and oh yeah - FUN - Christa Funk
Reply: Thanks for sharing about your experience Christa. I had so much fun getting to know you and Len and I'm just so happy you were able to give us a GOLD STAR for hitting the target. LOL. Congrats on your new purchase and I'm looking forward to keeping in touch and seeing you again real soon!
As a first time homebuyer Steph made the process much more relaxing and smooth. Her market knowledge and reputation in the industry made for a great experience. Highly recommended. - Hayden Hanson
Reply: Congratulations on your first purchase Hayden! Things couldn't have worked our better seeing how, after practicing some patience, we were able to beat out another buyer to secure the perfect property at such a killer price! I'm so grateful to have been a part of this journey with you.
Very helpful and quick to respond. Went above and beyond. Made the whole process very easy. Great at explaining what was expected from us. Set us up with a great lawyer and home inspector. - Brent Pabsdorf
Reply: Thanks for sharing Brent. Working with you and Melissa to help purchase your very first home was so special for me and I couldn't be more excited for your family. Congrats on your stunning new property.
Steph and her team did a fantastic job with our recent home purchase. She is easy to work with, provides excellent advice, and doesn't miss any details. The entire team was excellent. Highly recommend. - Kimberly
Reply: Thanks so much Kimberly. It was such a pleasure working with you, initially, from afar in order to help you find the perfect home for your families cross country move. I'm so excited to see you all finally here and settled in... welcome to Kelowna!
We live in Saskatchewan and sold our condo through Steph. Steph asked for legal advise regarding our condo. She kept us updated continuously. We did everything from our home in Saskatchewan. Our condo sold within days above asking price. Steph was recommended by our son who also used her services and got over his asking price. Steph also recommend several lawyers to choose from. We went with Roger Mace @(Bryshun Mace Lawyers). He was great as well. To buy or sell property in Kelowna we would definitely choose Steph again! - Ron and Lorna Nickel
Reply: Lorna! Wow, what an adventure we got to go on together! Although I would love to say I always have the answers to everything, it's just not the case which is why I feel so grateful to have such trustworthy professional to refer to when we need great advice. Congratulations on the sale of your condo and thanks for being so great to go to work for.
Stephanie is totally amazing and provides next level professional representation. We worked with Stephanie remotely from out of province, and she managed every detail of our purchase with precision. She was our eyes and ears, and anticipated all our needs. We completely trust her expertise and guidance, and we’re so grateful and happy in our new Okanagan home! - Greg Patterson
Reply: Thanks for sharing about your experience Greg. Working for and getting to know you and you family was so special for me and I'm just so excited I was able to provide a great experience and that you are finally here and settled into your amazing new home. Congratulations! Welcome to Kelowna!
It was a pleasure to work with Steph. She is a terrific realtor with lots of energy, a good sense of humour, easy to talk to and very focused on getting the job done. - Karen and Bruce Armon
Reply: The pleasure was all mine as I thoroughly enjoyed helping you with every aspect of your sale right from helpful staging advise to negotiating top dollar price in multiple offers. I'm so pleased you had a great experience - I had a total blast. Congrats on the sale and best of luck on your next adventure!
Stephanie was a great agent to deal with both on the buying and selling side. She really worked hard for us to meet our needs and answered all of our questions in a timely matter. We would definitely recommended using her to achieve your real estate goals! - Graeme
Reply: What a journey... when you came to me a few years ago with ambitious goals of buying your very first condo and then soon moving up into a family home, I knew we had to find you the right one in order to make it all come together and I'm so happy that's what we were able to do. Fast forward to today... top dollar sale on your first condo and beat out multiple offers to get into your new family home... everything lined up perfectly and I'm so grateful to have been your trusted agent to help guide you through all of this. Congratulations to you and your wonderful family Graeme.
Steph and her team assisted my family with purchasing an investment property. She was professional, knowledgeable and efficient. We were able to lock down a great property that matched our criteria and budget. We couldn’t have done it without Steph’s help! Would highly recommend Steph and her team to anyone looking for a great realtor in the Okanagan area. - Pedram
Reply: Pedram, I appreciate the kind words. It was my pleasure to go to work for your family and I'm so excited about the new addition to the real estate portfolio. Thanks for being so great to go to work with and for.
I worked with Steph over a 4 month period, where she expertly guided me through: - finding the perfect home for my next chapter when I had no idea what I wanted. - expertly negotiated my offer in a crazy market, with my offer being accepted!! - helped me get my home ready for listing. - got me an excellent offer within a few hours of listing, the deal was closed! - supported me through the process of the move and settling into my new home! Steph was amazing, every step of the way. Her attention to detail was unbelievable, I am so thankful she was my realtor through this journey and recommend her without reservation. - Rita Ireland
Reply: Rita, I feel so blessed that you chose me as your agent to help guide you through this challenging yet exciting chapter in your life. The home sale and purchase process went almost just as I had hoped and expected but what I wasn't expecting is just how close we would become as we worked together. You truly are an exceptional lady.
Hands down the most amazing real estate agent! She is so organized and on top of everything. I’ve bought a few houses before and this was by far the most smooth and stress free process. Highly highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. - Danielle
Reply: Thanks for sharing your kind words Danielle. It always makes my little real estate heart happy to hear that I've had a positive impact on my amazing clients. I thoroughly enjoyed going to work for you and your family and I'm looking forward to seeing that renovation when it's done.
This was my 2nd transaction with Stephanie and again she outdid herself .... She got me the best price possible....Stephanie is outstanding. She will not let you down. Thanks again for all your hard work. - JEANNINE DAGENAIS
Reply: Jeannine, it's been my pleasure working with you as your trusted Real Estate Agent. I'm so pleased that we were able to get you such a great price for your condo and with the closing dates you required in order to make your move as smooth as possible. Looking forward to keeping in touch, even though it will now be from afar. You will be missed my friend.
Steph is an absolute pleasure to work with! Her and her team are hands down the best real estate team in Kelowna. She is very professional and knowledgeable with outstanding negotiation skills. Being new to Kelowna, she took the time to get to know us, what we were looking for and educated us about different neighbourhoods. We purchased our property in March when Kelowna housing market was very competitive and got an accepted offer among 20 other offers. I couldn’t recommend her enough! You wouldn’t be disappointed working with Steph and her team! - Nasim. N
Reply: Wow, thanks Nasim! I thoroughly enjoyed going to work for you during the craziness of the busy market and I'm sincerely so happy to hear you’re enjoying your new investment property. Thanks for being such an amazing client who has become an even better friend.
Hello fellow homeowners! I previously posted after the sale of our condo, and now have moved into our new home. We stood outside our new home chatting with Steph about how everything was perfectly timed for us. It doesn’t always happen that way! I honestly cannot say enough praise for Steph and her team. I just know you will not regret it if you choose to work with her! There’s a reason she’s rated #1! - Serena and Randy Young
Reply: Thanks for sharing about your experience working with me Serena as I had such a blast getting to know you and Randy. The joy of getting to help such great people like the two of you is exactly why I work so hard and do what I do. Congrats on the sale of your condo and on the purchase of your stunning new home!
Steph Ostash has been my agent for almost 2 years, and I have nothing but great things to say about her. I've worked with other agents and the level of service she provides is far beyond anything else I've experienced. Steph and her team are extremely organized, which provides assurance that all aspects of the purchase or sale are being taken care of. If you are seeking a true professional, I highly recommend Steph Ostash. - Stirling Grassick
Reply: Stirling, first off congrats on yet another amazing purchase and addition to your growing portfolio; I can't wait to see the full renovation when it's done. Thanks for not only being a loyal client but for bringing your eye for detail, analytical brain, and sense of humour to every project we work on together. We've encounter some big "real estate firsts" together with all the interesting adventures we have encountered and I'm looking forward to many more my friend.
Steph deserves every part of the 5 star rating and more. We thought our Vancouver realtor was top notch but dealing with Steph and her team has been another level. From our initial consultation regarding our move, to key handover, Steph has been professional, diligent, meticulous and an absolute pleasure to work with. She made negotiating a crazy market a simple and straight forward process, thank goodness! - Clare Marriott
Reply: Thanks for taking the time to leave such kind words Clare. I thoroughly enjoyed going to work for you and your family during our mission to find you not only the right home, but at the right price during the peak of the hectic market. I'm just so excited for this next chapter in your lives as I have a feeling your family is going to love it here. Welcome to the beautiful Okanagan!
Steph was wonderful to work with. We were moving to Okanagan from Ontario and despite the distance, she made the purchase of our new home very easy and enjoyable from the start. Would recommend Steph to anyone looking for a great realtor! - Jennifer Roué
Reply: Jennifer, I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience working together and that you are happy and settled in your stunning new home. It can often be a challenge for a buyer to make a purchase from afar so I'm grateful I was able to help you navigate though the real estate waters.
Steph was professional in all respects regarding this sale of my townhouse in Kelowna. She was prompt and efficient, and the townhouse sold at a good price even before it was formally listed! Great work! - Bill Helmus
Reply: Thanks for the lovely review Bill. I thoroughly enjoyed going to work for you and I'm happy we were able to navigate the challenges that came along with selling a tenanted property in order to get you top dollar.
Stephanie was great to work with on our recently purchased condo in downtown Kelowna. Very professional and personal, she made us feel very comfortable with the purchase and helped us every step of the way right until we took the keys. We trust Steph and her team 100% as we have already referred her to friends recently and one has already made a purchase. We will be definitely working with Steph again on a future purchase. - Glenn & Joanna Pryor
Reply: Congratulations on your awesome new purchase Glenn and Joanna, and thank - you for being so wonderful to go to work with and for. I'm so pleased we were able to find you the perfect investment property and I'm looking forward to the next one!
Stephanie is literally the best agent. We have experienced several realtors in our buying and selling history but none have delivered an experience the way Steph has. She honestly became part of our family during the sale of our home and we trusted her completely. She listened to us and gave us the best advice and strategy for selling our home. Stephanie is a master strategist and negotiator. I can't state this enough. She brought us several amazing offers and negotiated a price for our home that was significantly over asking. Her work didn't stop after we have an accepted offer either. Steph even gave us advice on finding a new agent in the province we were moving to and has welcomed any and all questions we have for her even after our transaction was complete. Work with Stephanie and you will NOT be disappointed. Matter of fact, you'll be wow-ed with the experience she is able to provide, it is a clear cut above the rest. - Holly
Reply: Holly, thank-you for the glowing review. It was such a pleasure helping you and your family through the sale of your home as you move on and into the next chapter of your lives. Thanks for allowing my to be a part of your journey.
Selling with Stephanie was top notch in every way. She spent lots of time with us, was extremely responsive, provided recommendations for good contractors and services, made these connections for us, and conducted very successful negotiations. The marketing steps were excellent. Her staging advice was invaluable. A true full-service professional! - Adrienne Nolan
Reply: Adrienne, thank - you for taking the time to share about your experience working together. I thoroughly enjoyed working with you in order to get your home sold and it was so much fun assisting with the purchase of your new condo for your daughter. I appreciate you and your support.
Stephanie and TJ made listing and selling our condo a breeze. We will never use another agent as we greatly appreciate their professionalism and understanding of the market/area. They go above and beyond to provide excellent service to their clients. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell. They take the stress out of navigating the realistate market. - Sabrina Lukkarinen
Reply: Thanks for the awesome review Sabrina. It was such a great experience helping you and Jason make a killer purchase a couple years ago then helping you turn around and sell that same property for a nice "little" return on your investment. Always a pleasure working with and for the two of you, until the next one!
After using a real estate agent last year whom my sister recommended, my husband and I decided to change. I found Steph on this website! After a quick phone call I knew she was “the one” and my husband jokes and says she’s my favourite person. All intros aside, Steph is highly knowledgeable about the market and can guide you through making those stressful decisions with the when and how to list your property. I don’t often give 10/10, gold star, top dolla ratings - but you won’t regret working with Steph and her team! - Serena and Randy
Reply: Wow, Serena from our first call I also knew we would be fast friends and I was right. Working with you and Randy has been so amazing as not only do you diligently follow every piece of advise I give, making my job so much easier, but you two bring elements of humour and lots of laughs into every meeting. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of both your real estate journey and your life.
Our experience with Steph and her team for the sale of our house was outstanding! Of our years of buying and selling homes this was our best experience yet. Not only does Steph provide top notch skills, knowledge and professionalism but her follow up and communication were excellent. We highly recommend Steph and her team! - Kiri Glen
Reply: Kiri, wow! Considering how experienced you are in the real estate world, it makes me so happy to hear that this has been your best experience so far. I felt honoured that you chose me, of all agents, to be your Kelowna agent and I'm so glad this all came together for you. Best of luck to you and Joel on your new, but familiar, next adventure.
Stephanie is without a doubt the top real estate agent I have ever had the pleasure to deal with. She is highly knowledgeable, professional and very responsive, keeping me in the loop during all stages of the selling process. I honestly feel that choosing her to represent me on the sale of both my properties was the smartest decision I could have made. She maximized my return on both deals, and truly went above and beyond to make the process as stress free and enjoyable as possible. I have already recommended her to all my family and friends that are considering buying or selling in the Okanagan. Stephanie is a true asset to her profession and I am beyond grateful for all of her help! - Tim Muise
Reply: Tim, thanks for putting your trust in me, from afar, and giving me the freedom to do what I do. It was such a pleasure working with you and I’m so happy that through all our hard work and help from the rest of my preferred partners and team (Gaby at Zaga home staging etc) we were able to get your properties picture perfect and sold for top dollar. Enjoy the beach my friend, you earned it.
Stephanie has been great to work with from start to finish. Her knowledge of the local ares, transparency on property quality, relationship with other agents and assistance has been paramount in purchasing our first home in Kelowna. Without Stephanie, we would still be searching for our first home. I could not recommend Stephanie enough as an agent! - Tony Moore & Kyla Villabona
Reply: Tony and Kyla! Wow, what pleasure it has been to assist you with your journey from Ontario to the beautiful Okanagan. It was an interesting journey getting here but in the end I truly believe you found the perfect location and home for your growing family and I can't wait for you to be all settled in. Thanks for putting your faith in trust in not only me, but in my team. Congrats guys!
Stephanie just helped my wife and I buy a house in Lake Country. I have purchased a number of properties during the course of my life and I have never had a better agent than Stephanie. She is competent, professional, approachable, and very nice to work with. I have also never received such support in all aspects of purchasing a home. Stephanie's team is equally talented. Stephanie also provided us recommendations on lawyers, house inspectors, mortgage brokers, and contractors for some renovations we would like to do. If you are going to use a realtor, you might as well use the best. That is Stephanie. - Mike Stefanelli
Reply: Mike, thank - you for taking the time to share about your experience. I'm so excited for you and Brenda and can't wait for you to get moved and settled into your spectacular new Okanagan home. Congratulations!
Steph was amazing and pulled through when we wanted to purchase a property at the last minute. Her team put together an amazing offer and we were successful over multiple other buyers for the same home. Would recommend to anyone buying in the Kelowna/ Lake Country area! - Steve Sheret
Reply: Steve! What a little adventure we had! I’m so glad we were able to spring into action, get everything done, and come out on top. Congrats on your stunning new home my friend!
Stephanie is an absolute joy to work with. She is attentive, educated, and highly professional. Stephanie was always quick to respond and checked-in regularly along our process of buy a home. With her extensive knowledge and expertise, I would recommend Stephanie to anyone buying or selling a home. - Hannah Sheret
Reply: Congratulations on your amazing new home Hannah. I'm just so happy that this all worked out for you and Steven as I know there are many great memories to be had!
Stephanie (and her team) are my go to people for all things real estate AND advice or referrals related to investing in property - rental prices and the rest! I just love working with her. Not only is she the most positive person I do business with, but the most responsive realtor I can think of! He refreshing focus coupled with her kind and super calm but energetic demeanor makes her a dream to work with. There just seems to be nothing she won't do to ensure I get what I need! Thanks again Stephanie for a super quick and easy sell on my investment property! - Lori Pierson
Reply: Lori, wow, thank-you for your kind words. It has been so great getting to know you over the years as we work together on your real estate portfolio and needs. Thanks for being an amazingly loyal client and now, also, a wonderful friend. I appreciate you big time.
Stephanie is a top tier agent. She is extremely knowledgeable and truly cares about her clients. I’ve recommended her to all of my friends because I know she’s the best at what she does! - Bahar
Reply: Bahar, thanks for the kind words. I have thoroughly enjoyed being your real estate consultant and being a part of your journey. Thank - you for sharing about your experience working with me and trusting me to take care of your friends and family the same way I take care of you.
Stephanie and TJ were simply amazing to work with. She helped me and my wife purchase our dream home in Kelowna. She didn't pressure us at all, was exceptionally patient, and unbelievably on top of everything. We've already told Stephanie and TJ that we'd be more than happy to refer them to any and all of our friends that are looking to either buy, or sell a house in Kelowna. Given how competitive Kelowna's housing market is, we really don't think we could have navigated it without the support, guidance, and experience of Stephanie and TJ. - Ken and Padma
Reply: Thanks for the kind words Ken and Padma. I know it's often hard to find the right home when you're not physically present to do the viewings so I appreciate the amount of trust you put in myself and my team in order to get the job done for you. Congrats on your stunning new luxury Okanagan property; Your family is going to make many amazing memories together!
I highly recommend Steph. She has great communication skills and excellent knowledge of the buyer/seller process. She makes the transaction a simple, fluid experience. Steph's business partner TJ was readily accessible when Steph was away and therefore they make for an organized team to do business with. - Adrian Kurz
Reply: Thanks for the kind words Adrian. It was a pleasure helping you out with your pre-sale investment purchase and we're looking forward to getting another great property to add to your growing portfolio.
Never had a bad experience with Stephanie, she has always had my best interest at heart when helping us when we sold and bought a new place. She is always very transparent, which is not easy to find with a Realtor. Would highly recommend her to anyone I know. - Valerie Bossley
Reply: Thanks for the glowing review Val. It was such a pleasure helping you buy your first condo and then later being able to sell that same condo to help you make a move up into your awesome new home. I’m so happy for you and Shae and all the milestones you’re accomplishing and thanks for being such an amazing and loyal client and friend.
Stephanie is delightful to work with. She is very knowledgeable and personable. She listened to what I was looking for and made adjustments as necessary. I will choose to work with Stephanie in the future . - Jacqueline L Macpherson
Reply: Jacquie, thanks so much for the lovely review. You were such a joy to work with and get to know and I'm looking forward to being your real estate consultant and friend for life.
She is excellent with all the details and contracts and always there when I needed her or had questions . Super pleasant and personable ! Made the move much less stressful! - Noreen Spanell
Reply: Thanks for the kind words and for being such an amazing and loyal client. It was such a pleasure helping you get your previous home sold as we found and got you moved into your awesome new townhome. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your real estate journey Noreen!
She provided us numerous options and pivoted when we needed. She is professional and has her clients' best interest in mind! We would love to work with her in the future. - Rita Stanojevic
Reply: Thanks for taking the time to share about your experience working together. I know we had some initial hurdles to overcome but I’m so glad that we were able to make some changes, find solutions, and get you your perfect build site for your Okanagan dream home.
I was referred to Stephanie through a friend of mine. I was blown away with her professionalism, promptness and knowledge. I can not thank her enough for a such a pleasant buying experience. - Aman Heran
Reply: Aman, it makes me so happy to know that you are happy. Congrats on acquiring a killer Okanagan investment property and looking forward to working together again soon!
Stephanie is knowledgeable, professional and a very good communicator. She takes full accountability and is honest in all of her business arrangements. I would, without hesitation, ask Stephanie to assist me in all new real estate acquisitions and sales. - Thomas Hoffman
Reply: Thanks for the awesome review Tom. I have thoroughly enjoyed working for and getting to know you over the years and I look forward to continuing to be your trusted real estate advisor for life.
Stephanie took the time to understand the key elements of the home I was looking for. This was important to me because I was moving in from another area and wasn’t readily available to look at some of the possible homes in person. I didn’t actually see the home I did purchase, but Stephanie’s meticulous video walk-through and guidance made me feel confident with my decision to forward an offer and I couldn’t be happier with my new home! - Angie Caughy
Reply: Angie, I’m just so happy that we found you the perfect home to settle into as you start this next chapter of your life. Thanks for putting your faith and trust in me. Congratulations on your move!
Steph is amazing!! We had limited time to view houses, coming from the lower mainland and she got us in every house we wanted to see. She found us our dream home in one weekend and an accepted offer within a day or two. She goes the extra mile and has helped us in so many ways other than real estate, she cares for her buyers in ways we have never experienced before (finding us a family doctor, checking in to see how we are doing, etc). I would recommend Steph to everyone I know in a heart beat. - Ashley Klein
Reply: Ashley, going to work for you and your family was truly such a joy. You are such great people and I’m so glad I was able to help you achieve your dream of moving to and owning property in the Okanagan. Looking forward to helping you make your next move really soon!
I had tried selling my house with two other agents and have had a terrible experience with both of them. I was very lucky that I came across Stephanie's profile and I called her. Stephanie restored my trust in the realtors, I don't have words to explain how amazing Stephanie is, she is professional, knowledgeable, sincere, honest, and a great person overall. I recommend Stephanie to everyone I know, and for sure I will not use any other realtor. Whenever I buy or sell in Okanagan and/or wherever else Stephanie works, she will be my realtor. Thank you very much Stephanie for being you! - Sajjad Ali
Reply: Sajjad, I truly appreciate your kind words. I know I was asking for a lot of trust when I told you that a major property overhaul needed to be done. I had a total blast choosing all the new interior colours, and overseeing the updates to ensure they were exactly what we wanted/ needed in order to get your home sold within the first 24 hours on the market and for top dollar. I know it was quite a process but I'm glad I was allowed to sit in on your strata's AGM (not something a realtor commonly does. LOL) in order to convince them to allow us to cut a window/ add a 4th bedroom to your property - as you know, this added huge value to the home. Thanks for being so great to work with and for... not only have you become a loyal client but a really great friend.
Stephany and her team where the most professional realtors we have ever dealt with having bought and sold several of homes in the past. Their attention to detail when crafting the offer was impressive. - Arthur Davis
Reply: Thanks for sharing Arthur. I know when we first met a few years ago, you were interested in making a move but I really felt the timing wasn't right so I'm glad you were able to hold off and wait for the market to come around to a place where you could really capitalize on the sale of your property. It's been so great getting to know you as we worked together through this process and I can't wait to come celebrate with you when the sale is closed and done.
We thought Stephanie and her team were very professional and helpful. We have bought and sold several homes over the years and Stephanie and her team were the best realtors by far. - Ronaye Davis
Reply: Ronaye, thank - you for the kind words. It was such a pleasure helping you navigate todays tricky market as we negotiated $25k over asking for your current home, then $25k under asking on your new home... all while lining up the dates so you can easily move from one home to the next. I know you had a lot of fears and concerns around selling and then not being able to find the right home to move to so thank - you for putting your faith and trust in me and allowing me to make all of this come together for you. Congratulations and I can't wait to come visit when you're all settled into your amazing new place!
Steph was an absolute rock star who helped us buy our beautiful home in Kelowna as out of town buyers. She educated us on everything we needed to know about buying – from the market to the best neighbourhoods and everything in between. She was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive throughout the entire process – even down to the smallest, most thoughtful details - and made us feel very confident in our decision. I would absolutely recommend her to anybody buying or selling. - Teresa Tufts
Reply: Teresa, thanks for taking the time to leave such a glowing review about your experience working together. I am so thrilled that we were able to secure your dream home for you from afar. I know it takes a lot of trust to purchase a home sight unseen but the look on your faces when you got to see your amazing new property, for the very first time, on possession day was priceless. I just know that you and your expanding family will be so happy here. Congratulations lady!
Steph is an incredible real estate agent who helped our family buy a home that met our needs. What I appreciated most about Steph was her honesty and she would be open about her thoughts on each property which was extremely valuable for us as we were moving to a new city. She probably could have sold us on a home sooner that wasn't a good fit but Steph never pressured us and she was incredibly patient with us as we navigated through a crazy market. We ended up with a home in a great location and for a price that we feel was good value. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Steph again for my next real estate transaction. - Ian Pollard
Reply: Ian, thanks for the kind words. Good things come to those who wait and this is certainly true for you and your family. I'm so excited to see you not only get your foot in the booming Kelowna market but to have made a smart purchase that will produce great returns down the road. Congratulations my friend.
Can't say enough positive things about Steph. She is an absolute professional. Always quick to respond and assist with any and all issues on a very complicated/complex deal - even when they were clearly beyond the scope of her required services (many times). Steph won our loyalty and we wouldn't even consider using anyone else for buying or selling a property in the future. - Mike Howarth
Reply: Mike, yes, we certainly did have a number of hurdles to overcome in this truly unique and complex Real Estate purchase, however, we did it and I couldn't be more excited for you and your family. A huge congratulations - can't wait to come for a visit to the new and improved Ranch.
Very professional and incredibly thorough agent. Probably the most thorough agent I have ever dealt with. Her bright and cheery attitude made all our transactions extremely pleasant. Stephanie meticulous attention to detail makes her stand out from all the rest. Thank you for all your help. - Daren Wilson
Reply: Daren, I'm so happy that we were able to secure the perfect summer vacation rental property for you and your family. I Had so much fun going to work for and getting to know you guys... looking forward to working together again soon my friend.
Steph and her team were simply amazing and a pleasure to work with! She was always available to answer questions, provided helpful advice throughout the full on renovation and made the overall process of selling my property fun and easy. Hats off to Steph for he patience through the renovation that took longer than expected but that sold for over the asking price. She will be my first choice for purchasing my next property in the not too distance future. Thanks again for everything Steph! - Trevor Zacharias
Reply: Thanks for sharing about your experience working together Trevor! It was such a pleasure working with you over the last few years to ensure your home was renovated in a way that would appeal to the massed and garner a top dollar offer. I'm so happy for you and excited for your next adventure.
Stephanie was amazing to work with! She was extremely fast in response times and got things done when we asked her for info and requests. She will work with you on anything and is extremely knowledgeable in her field of work. We were told about her through a family member and would recommend her to anyone else! Highly, highly recommended! - Orland Bramsleven
Reply: Orland, it was such a joy to go to work for you and Tahnee on the purchase of your first home. The look on your faces on the day of possession is what I truly live for. Can't wait to come for a visit when you're all settled in!
Couldn't have been happier with Steph and her team! Her professional approach and great communication made the process very smooth and easy. I look forward to working with her again on my next purchase. - Thomas Staron
Reply: Thomas, it was so great going to work for you on your awesome Okanagan investment property. Thanks for being so easy to work with and for and for already sending more business my way. I appreciate your business, I appreciate your referrals, and I truly appreciate you. Looking forward to delivering the same amazing service and results to your business partner, as I did for you! :)
I can not express how great Stephanie is. She has always gone above and beyond to make a home buying experience memorable and easy. Stephanie is very knowledgeable and above and beyond professional. - Dan Covelli
Reply: Dan, it was such a pleasure to assist you in yet another Real Estate purchase. With the inventory being tight, I know we had to practice but I'm so happy we found and scooped up a great opportunity for you. Thanks again for being so fun and easy to work for. You're a true gem.
Stephanie kept us on track during a very crazy housing market. Her advice to drive around different neighborhoods was crucial, as we were new to Kelowna. Her professionalism and genuine niceness make her a pleasure to work with. We consider ourselves fortunate to have found her. - Faith Toole
Reply: Thanks for the lovely review Faith. It was so great getting to know you and Brian and I'm so happy we were able to find the perfect home and community for you and then negotiate a great price on top of that. Congratulation on your new home and move. Looking forward to coming to see the renovations when they are done.
We recently worked with Stephanie to sell our revenue property. Having purchased our home with her we have come full circle being both a buyer and a seller with Stephanie. We found Stephanie to be professional, knowledgeable and transparent in both of our transactions. Both our purchase and our sale had somewhat unique conditions and variables that Stephanie did an excellent job of navigating for us. She gave us good advice and guidance and was supportive and respectful even when our decisions were not in alignment with her recommendations. She really works with you. Her advice in staging our house was good and although it was a challenge to initially wrap our heads around the expense we felt it was totally worth it and paid off. The stager she recommended did an amazing job and our house looked magazine worthy. She helped us work through challenging communications during our reno and was always there to help and have our backs. She did a fantastic job and really worked with us and the complexity of our sale. I would recommend using Stephanie to my friends and family. - Cindy Mooney
Reply: Cindy! Congrats again on the sale of your property. Yes, we certainly had some challenges and unique variables to navigate but I'm just so happy that this all came together for you and your family so that you can move onto your next adventure. Thanks for being such an amazing loyal client and friend.
Stephanie is an incredible agent and individual. We definitely made the right choice in using her services to purchase our home. She was patient, thoughtful, and professional throughout the entire process. She will be our go to agent for years to come. Thank you Stephanie and team : ) - Kurt
Reply: Wow, thanks Kurt. I had such a blast getting to know you, Nicole and Charlie throughout this adventure together. Looking forward to what the future hold for you and your family!
Thanks again Steph! We really can’t find enough adjectives to cover this lady's skills and energy when it comes to dealing with our real estate needs. We have used for both buying and selling. Most recently, we sold an investment property and we feel confident that all our needs and best interests were met if not exceeded with Stephanie. I would and do recommend her to all my friends! If you are looking for someone who pays attention to every detail, she is the lady for you! - Connie Dack
Reply: Awe, Connie you are too kind. It was so great working with you, yet again, on another Real Estate transaction. Thanks for being such an amazing loyal client and friend.
We were put in touch with Steph through a mutual friend of ours when we started seriously considering our move out to the Okanagan. It became clear to us right away that we had picked the right person for the job. Steph is an incredibly personable and kind individual who invested so much time and energy in us and our search. She worked so incredibly hard to make our dream of living in the Okanagan a reality, even when it felt impossible. Steph went way above and beyond to find us our first home, as we had to rely on her more than ever due to us living in a different province. She did numerous video tours, gave us her honest opinion on all the homes, and knew exactly what we were looking for and what was going to work for us. We are so grateful for all her hard work and determination to get us out to our dream location. If we could give her 10 stars we would, she's just that amazing. - Keegan & Alyssa
Reply: Congrats on your first home my friends! I feel so blessed that our paths crossed and I had the honour of playing a major role in your real estate and life journey. You two deserve nothing but the best and I couldn't be happier for you. Here's to many great memories ahead.
We met Steph through friends who had bought their land with help from Steph. One of the first offers we placed was in multiple offers on Easter Sunday and Steph worked with us the whole day trying to get the deal done. Steph is very driven and wants to make sure the deal gets done. Even though we did not get Easter Sunday property we got the next one. - Jerry Avila
Reply: Jerry, it was such a pleasure working with you and Marijana to help you make a purchase from afar. Although we didn't get the first property we offered on, sometimes things happen for a reason as was the case here. Congratulations on the purchase of your amazing new home site in Peachland. there were man fine details for our team to sort out for you but it all came together and TJ and I can't wait to see the finished product when everything is done and built!
Stephanie Ostash and TJ Dumonceaux were very informative and helpful in the process of selling our home. I will absolutely be going with this team for all of my future real estate endeavours and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an experienced, motivated team to assist them in theirs. - Megan
Reply: Megan, it was so great going to work for you in order to get a quick top dollar sale. We feel grateful that you put your faith and trust in us and we look forward to being your trusted Real Estate consultants for life. :)
