I met with TJ in January because I was thinking of selling my condo. At our first meeting he got to know what I might be looking for and what my timeline was by asking relevant questions about what I wanted and he took scrupulous notes. From that day forward TJ walked me through everything and the timeline goals we discussed were met without any hiccups. Of course in real estate there can always be hiccups... like a super-quick sale - 4 offers over asking after only 2 1/2 days of showings, and no new home purchased yet! Yikes! TJ was still calm, consistent, extremely flexible and had the experience to handle the Hot Kelowna Market - he was my Voice of Reason. He then used his negotiation skills for my dream condo (for sale buy owner) and made it a quick and easy buying process getting everything that I wanted and more. Even the seller's of my new place were really pleased with how personal yet professional TJ was with them. What could have been a stressful and anxious time TJ turned into a fun and exciting adventure. I could not recommend a better realtor and I know we will continue to be friends long after this transaction. - Dee Hurren
TJ was an absolute joy to work with. He was professional, knowledgeable, responsive and ambitious. He navigated my first time home buyers ignorance with grace and understanding, explained the process every step of the way and completely put me at ease. As many of you know, today’s market is challenging to say the least, but I firmly believe that working with TJ & Steph helped me nail an accepted offer. Couldn’t be happier. I recommend him to all of my friends, family and clients. - Denise
TJ is an amazing Real Estate Agent. He will win deals in multiple offers just because the selling agent wants to deal with him. He will go above and beyond for his clients and even though he is extremely busy, he never makes us feel rushed or that he doesn't have the time. We are out of province investors & TJ made the buying process simple. We have now bought multiple houses sight unseen because TJ was able to advise us along the way, make videos, get information and refer us to people that we would need to make the deal happen. We are so appreciative to TJ for the hard work he puts into his deals for his clients. - Jocelyn Porter
From first introduction to the final sale this experience was top notch. TJ made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process with his enthusiastic and energetic spirit. After looking at the same walls for 12 years you notice many imperfections. TJ's confidence in our home gave us the confidence to believe it really was worth all that we had built it up to be over the years. TJ went to work for us and delivered. We write this with sincere thanks to TJ, along with his team Steph and Jessie, for a job well done! - Heather and Curtis Head
TJ is a fantastic agent to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, ethical and friendly. He helped me with his expertise every step of the way. We found a place that truly encompassed the "Okanagan experience", and I couldn't be happier. His partner, Steph Ostash is also great and completely up to speed on all of their clients. They work seamlessly together, and one of them is always available and willing to help! Keep up the fantastic work, TJ! - Mike Tharin
TJ was a fantastic realtor! Extremely knowledgeable and took videos when we couldn't make it to view properties. Highly recommend and will use again! Responsive at all hours, if he was away would have his partner take over, but we knew well in advance. Best realtor I've worked with - Brody
I have worked with a number of real estate agents before and none compare to my experience with TJ. In what was the most challenging market to date; we were able to secure a home with 11 other offers (a few of which that were higher than ours). If it weren't for the experience, knowledge and determination that TJ provided, we would not have secured our dream investment property. As an out of town investor, TJ put in countless hours finding the right property for us and we never felt pressured to pursue a property that we were not comfortable with. I look forward to working with TJ on many future deals and I encourage anyone who is looking for an advantage in such a competitive market to do the same! - Blake Geoghegan
Reply: It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and Brody and I am so stoked for you guys! Your second investment property in Kelowna! I look forward to helping grow your portfolio for years to come and excited to have you join us in living the Okanagan Lifestyle, your going to love it! Cheers, TJ
From start to finish TJ made our whole experience easy and pleasurable! Moving from Edmonton was a huge adventure for us and we are happy we had TJ as our agent! It definitely was a long process but he was by our side the whole way. TJ being relatively new to the industry, totally impressed us with his knowledge, professionalism and attentiveness! We felt very comfortable talking with TJ and were surprised how well he was able to communicate with clients of all ages. He showed true compassion and spent the time when dealing with the older sellers. Not only were we buying their home, but also the stories that went with them. Growing up in Kelowna is a definite asset when dealing in real estate! We are ecstatic with our purchase and are grateful for having TJ as our agent! We highly recommend TJ, whether buying or selling, and would absolutely use him again as our agent....although I believe he has found our dream home and have no intentions of moving ever again. Thanks again TJ! It was a job well done! Don’t change your ways :) - Nadia and Bob Cutting
What a great experience buying my first home. TJ made the whole process really easy and went out of his way to explain how everything worked to me as I didn’t have any experience buying a house before. He was steps ahead the whole way, and I was really impressed! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to everyone I know as I would hope everyone’s first time buying a house is as comfortable as TJ made my first purchase. - Zach Salloum
Reply: Not only did we snag this one in multiple offers but we had someone knocking on possession day looking to re-purchase it from you!! So stoked for you on this one Zach! Hold this one for many years as you are going to see some amazing growth in the near future!
TJ was amazing, he was prompt and enthusiastic in returning any calls or answering questions. Not only that, I never once felt like he was pushing the purchase for a commission. TJ genuinely wanted me to make the best decision possible, regardless of how long it would take. - Reid Pratley
Reply: They say you never forget your first one... and let me tell ya, you will never forgot this one LOL. We had a few hoops to jump through with this one. I couldn't be more excited for you to have your first investment property under your belt! Cheers to a prosperous rental property portfolio in your future my friend! - TJ
TJ provided excellent support and assistance with my purchase of two full triplex buildings. It was a complex deal involving many up’s and down’s and no shortage of challenges. TJ played an instrumental role in the transaction. He retrieved an impressive amount of information on the property and put together a comprehensive due diligence package. Thanks to his dedicated efforts, I was able to move forward feeling comfortable that no stone had been left unturned. I got to know TJ personally while working with him, and I am truly impressed by his ambition and drive. I have no doubt that he gives 110% for every one of his clients. I highly recommend TJ to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, energetic, and passionate realtor. - Stirling Grassick
Reply: No shortage of challenges on this one indeed! :) Not only was it a pleasure working with you it was awesome getting to know you! Congrats again on the kick ass investment properties! I look forward to furthering our relationship and securing some more rental properties in the near future! Cheers - TJ
I cannot stress how positive my experience with TJ was. Not only was I a first time buyer, but I was also moving to Kelowna from Calgary so I was very green to both the Okanagan and buying a home. I would say I was a pretty anxious client and TJ made me feel as though I was a top priority throughout the entire process (from the time of initial shopping to my closing was 7 months). He was punctual, professional, honest and went above and beyond to make sure that I found my perfect home. It was an absolute pleasure to work with him, I would love to work with him in the future and highly recommend him to anyone shopping here. - Nicole MacDonald
Reply: Thank you for the kind words Nicole :) Im so happy we found "the one"! You are going to absolutely love living the Okanagan Lifestyle! Cheers to you! - TJ
TJ gave me excellent advice on the sale of my condo Made suggestions I had not thought of or been aware of. Hr was very respectful and responsive to my calls and texts. He got great results in a very short time. I received 3 showings before it even was listed on mls. - Greg Dumonceaux
Reply: Thanks Greg! Now its time to find you a new home :)
TJ was receptive to my needs and requirements. He was very intuitive, dependable, punctual and professional. Time was never wasted and a thorough plan was always prepared in detail prior to a meeting or viewing. It was an extreme pleasure to work with TJ, not only for his professionalism, but for his willingness and desire to do more than required. - Teresa Kaban
Reply: Teresa your one in a million! Thank you so much for being not only an amazing client but an awesome friend! I always look forward to our catch ups! I sure can't wait to hanging my snowmobile decoration you got me on the tree in 2021 :) Sincerely - TJ
TJ and Stephanie 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: Team SALT!! Thank you all for being so awesome to work with and for putting your trust in Steph and I to get the job done for you! Back to work we go to find you the next one! Cheers Ladies! - TJ
It's clear that TJ is a very driven and busy person, but he has a way of somehow making you feel like you're his number one priority. There was absolutely no pressure to buy and he was always patient with our millions of questions and requests. The only downside to our successful purchase was that we wouldn't be working together anymore! But TJ has continued to help us with everything we need after the sale, going above and beyond. Looking forward to working with TJ and Steph again for the next investment property! - Amber Bahm
Reply: Appreciate the kind words Amber! Keep up all the hard work with the Reno and keep posting pictures and videos so I can live vicariously through you lol! Nothing better than seeing the transformation unfold! - TJ
As a first-time buyer and budding investor, TJ's honesty and profound experience were so valuable. He truly knows his stuff and cares about his clients. Working with TJ feels like he's on your team through every step of the process. He's gone so far out of his way for us, and we can't thank him enough! I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell, especially those looking for an investment property. - Lindsey Eadie
Reply: Thanks Lindsey :) I have loved following along behind the scenes with the Reno! You ladies are crushing it! Im excited to come check it out !
TJ is a fantastic realtor! His honesty, friendliness, responsiveness, knowledge of the different neighborhoods and experience on renovations made him the perfect agent for my needs. Besides guiding me through the whole search and transaction process, he shared with me a ton of experienced advise of such value that I felt he went way beyond where any great agent stops. Highly recommended! - Paolo Dominici
Reply: It was our pleasure helping you Paolo! You have some amazing ideas for the house and we can't wait to watch the transformation! If you need any more introductions to services providers along the way, be sure to let us know. Chat soon - TJ
TJ helped find the perfect condo for me right away! He was really helpful and quick with all his responses and he proactively would follow up with me to see how things were going. Would highly recommend him to all my family and friends. Thanks for everything! - Carlo Gutierrez
Reply: Appreciate the opportunity to help you through this exciting time in your life. As they say "You never forget the first one" Cheers Carlo! - TJ
TJ is a true professional. He was always available, organized and on top of the deal from start to finish. His knowledge of the market is an indication of the time and energy that he puts into his craft. As a first time home buyer I was glad to have him in my corner! - Colton H
Reply: Thanks Colton! What an exciting deal to be apart of! During one of the hottest markets we were still able to get a screaming deal on the property! No better way to kick off the birthday weekend either! I hope it was a blast! - TJ
We found TJ to be a perfect fit for us! His honest and professional approach to the existing real estate market at the time was greatly appreciated. If you are searching for an experienced full-service realtor with loads of personality and integrity, we cannot think of a better person than TJ Dumonceaux Highly recommended! - Clyde & Simone Molley
Reply: It was my absolute pleasure Clyde & Simone :) . Over 50 showings in the first week on your previous home is still a record in my books! Congratulations on making the move to the Beautiful Okanagan !
TJ made the experience of buying our first home in 20 years seem-less and stress free! His work ethic and responses were very quick. TJ gave us advise and recommended us to various legal advisors who were competent in their field which reassured us. I was surprised by TJ early on, giving us honest responses on questions we had. The success of our relationship with TJ lead us to an amazing deal on a home that was a long shot. His professionalism and engaging personality made the process very easy! I will be recommending TJ as a realtor in the future! - Jonathan McIntosh
Reply: What an amazing deal to be apart of! Absolutely stole this one :) Congrats to you and the fam Jon!
TJ made buying our first home such a wonderful experience, even in a fast paced market. His recommendations helped ensure there was a steady flow of properties to be listed and seen. With his constant communication and honest opinions I always felt TJ was looking out for our best interests. Even when we hadn't found "the one" yet. TJ never made us feel pressured to put an offer in just so he could close the sale and he was able to find us our dream home which we couldn't be happier with. TJ listens to your requirements, adapts to the situation, and follows through. He clearly explained the fees and the terms of the agreement so it was very straight forward. While we were looking for our house TJ was always available for advice, and successfully negotiated a final sale price to our financial benefit on our new home. He also arranged and recommended legal advisors who handled the sale agreement. TJ will always be our first pick in realtors in the Kelowna area. He was very helpful in every way. You can not go wrong with choosing him. We look forward to many more future sales with TJ leading us through. - Chali & Dan Stewart
Reply: So thrilled we found "the one"!! First day in the new house and already putting your own touches on it, love that! Thanks so much for allowing me to help help you through this exciting process! I look forward to seeing the finished product :) - Sincerely, TJ
We met TJ by chance when my wife phoned to look at a listing in Kelowna. From our initial meeting right through to the sale of our house and the purchase of a new one we have been thoroughly impressed with TJ's capability and his willingness to go above and beyond to get the job done. He is professional, aggressive when he needs to be and a very personable and passionate individual. In my opinion the highest compliment you can pay an individual is to say you would hire them again in a second and in this case without a doubt we would want TJ to represent us on any future home sales or purchases. - Bruce Foster
Reply: It was my absolute pleasure Bruce! Im already looking forward to next summer so we can get out for a round of golf on Pred to celebrate.. and to enjoy some good company. Thank you for allowing me to assist you and Renee through the process. Not only are you amazing clients, you are amazing friends. Cheers - TJ
TJ wildly exceeded our expectations - to say he went above and beyond doesn't even come close to expressing just how much he did for us. As a first-time buyer, I wasn't entirely sure what I was looking for in the beginning - we saw a quite a few places before landing on THE one - but TJ took the time to educate us, get to know us and fully understand our specific needs. From wrangling quotes, to climbing on roofs, I truly can't imagine anyone else going to such great lengths to ensure their client both has the best experience possible and gets the best information available. He leaves no stone unturned and does far, far more than what's asked of him (and frankly, far more than what any reasonable human could even expect!). With a background in construction, he also spots flaws and offers countless ideas on how to improve upon what's there - so he sees potential, but he also tells you if and when you can do better. Beyond all that, TJ is a confident, capable negotiator, is supremely organized, extremely communicative, and weathers any challenges (we ran into a few) with ease. His passion for his work palpable and though he's relatively new to the field, he will go far, without a doubt. Words fall short, but simply put: our experience could not have been any better. TJ, we have endless gratitude for you and we are forever in your debt! - Natalie J.
Reply: You Rock Nat ! Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to guide you through through the process!
I had THE best experience with TJ Dumonceaux as my realtor. I purchased a rental property and he was helpful every step of the way. So attentive and I felt fully supported with all the steps involved. Professional, engaging, thorough and very connected to other professionals in the process. So appreciate his attitude of WE are in it together. Don't hesitate to reach out to TJ for your real estate needs, questions, concerns and he'll find the solution. - Brenda McIntosh
Reply: Thanks Brenda! It been awesome to see the amazing transformation of your unit! What a great additional to the portfolio! Looking forward to helping you snap up another one this year! :) - TJ
My parents and I are so incredibly impressed and thankful for TJ during the process of buying my perfect first property here in Kelowna. I had heard that the first time home buyer process can be quite stressful so I was very nervous, but he answered my questions clearly, found answers promptly for the questions he wasn’t too sure about, and made the process a breeze. My parents having dealt with realtors in the past in comparison to dealing with TJ was like night and day. It was like dealing with a seasoned professional. He is a great communicator and always kept us in the loop. I never once felt pressured at any time during this process as TJ was persistent, but never pushy. We are so grateful for all the hard work and time he put into helping me find my first property. We will definitely use TJ for future real estate purchases and continue to recommend him to all of our friends and family who are looking to buy or sell. Thank you Tj for making this process so easy! - Haley
Reply: It has been amazing hearing about all your success with the Air BNB since the day you bought it! Can't wait to watch your portfolio grow and provide residual income for you and your family. Cheers Haley
TJ was awesome to deal with. He was very knowledgeable, personable and a great communicator. He went above and beyond when looking for our investment property in Kelowna. I definitely recommend TJ when looking to purchase a property in Kelowna - Michael Wozimirsky
Reply: Always a pleasure Mike. We are off to finding our next investment property to expand that portfolio! Thanks for being not only a great client but a great friend
I had the pleasure of working with TJ Dumonceaux for my first home purchase. Before working with TJ, I had worked with several realtors at different agencies in Kelowna, and had been looking at the market for a while. None of them were able to really help me, or seemed to really care about me and my needs. My first interaction with TJ was amazing, he had a great presentation outlining how he was different from other realtors, for this reason I decided to give TJ a shot. From here on out, he continued to provide excellent service through market education, by continuously providing me with listing that fit my needs, and checking in on me every so often. At no point did I feel pressured, he was genuinely helping me and genuinely is a great guy. Eventually, we were able to find a place and he got us a viewing before someone else was going to view this same unit (units in this building were flipping fast and we didn't want to miss this great opportunity). He got us in, and we had an accepted offer (at a great price) on the unit before anyone else had a chance to put an offer in. After this TJ continued to provide me with great referral sources for a home inspection and on the legal end. TJ made the experience of buying my first home a stress-free and fun experience. I highly recommend getting in touch with him if you are looking to get into the market for whatever reason, you will not regret choosing him! - Donald Brouwer
Reply: Donald, it was such a treat helping you through this process. I look forward to continuing the relationship we have created! Cheers man
TJ recently helped me purchase my house. His market education was quite enlightening and he gave me a complete rundown of all the up and coming neighborhoods of Kelowna, based on my needs and wants. He really seems like he has finger on the pulse of the Okanagan's real estate market. What surprised me was his depth of knowledge in construction and renovations. I was looking to buy a place that needed some work and he really brought some great options to the table. Real estate seems like the perfect fit for TJ and judging by his passion in the industry, he will be a real estate agent for life. I would absolutely call TJ if I was ever buying or selling and I would refer him to any friend without hesitation. - Andrew Macleod
Reply: Andrew, I appreciate all your patients while we went to work finding you the right property to add to the portfolio. I look forward to seeing what you turn the place into!
TJ and the Vantage Team were amazing to say the least. Even though I was looking for a price point home, TJ never skiped a beat. He was knowledgeable, on time, friendly, thought outside the box and was there every step of the way. I didn't just walk away with a home, I walked away with a friend. - Dominique Doyon
Reply: Thanks for the kind words Dominique. Looking forward to getting together and riding some snowmobiles this season!
I have known TJ for a long time. I’ve witnessed his commitment to his hockey career, family and friends…and now I got to witness his commitment to his job, his clients, and his team…..as he helped me with buying a home. He was professional, educated, and walked me through the whole process. TJ was quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had…where I asked for his advice on a few occasions and he logically give it to me to where I felt at ease. TJ also dug his heels into staying with my offering price. I know the other agent and he went back and forth on the asking price, but TJ had all his ducks in a row with past sales in the area, the upgrades that were needed, and that we could have a quick closing. The deal was done in less than week…and I got the home for the price I offered. Thank you for everything! - Tammy
Reply: Cheers to new beginnings Tammy :) Thank you for allowing me to assist you through this process.
TJ was recommended to us as an exceptionally client focused agent who was well informed of the local market. As new buyers coming in from Toronto we were having to rely on a resident agent who could effectively work with us remotely. As it turned out with COVID-19 near its peak at our closing, working remotely and under new protocols was a necessity. There was considerable stress around both the buying and selling transactions, and even physically moving out to BC. TJ not only did a great job in showing us appropriate properties when we initially undertook the move back in the Fall of 2019, he provided constructive advice on various neighborhoods and building quality, and moreover was there for every step of the closing and ultimate move. Very personal service from a very capable and genuine individual. Could not be happier with our experience. Thank you TJ! - Paul Lobb
Reply: It was an absolute pleasure helping Sharon and yourself find that slice of paradise here in Kelowna!
I recently acquired a residential property in Lake Country through a family members passing. I asked a few locals for referals of real estate agents and one person told me about Advantage West Realty and named TJ Dumonceaux as an agent. I contacted TJ and that same morning he met me at the residence. We thoroughly discussed the potential and both agrees on a listing price with a covid19 handshake. Less than a week an offer and an agreement were signed. From day one I felt like I was dealing with a close friend rather than a real estate agent. Me being 950 kms. away and completely computer illiterate, TJ and his associates walked me through signing documents and agreements by e-mail. (Not totally stress free on my part and probably there's either). TJ had kept me informed of every transaction no matter how minor it was. Having TJ and his associates at Advantage West Realty looking after my interests will always be very much appreciated. Thanx TJ - Ed Shelenko
Reply: Appreciate the kind words Ed! It has been a pleasure working with you! Thank you for putting your trust in me and my team !
