    Ethan Rutley – Kelowna Realtor® with Walker Real Estate

    Ethan was very professional with our purchase and made the process as smooth as possible. Ethan knew exactly what we were looking for and found the perfect property for the price we wanted. All in all our dealings with Ethan Rutley were fantastic. I would recommend Ethan to anyone, he listens to the clients needs and really goes to work for his clients.

    Kim Peterson

    Ethan was a very friendly agent to work with. He listened to what we wanted.

    Vickey Hawkins

    Ethan impressed us when we met him because he answered our questions directly and seemed honest. He wasn’t into marketing himself all the time, as previous agents we have had were, which allowed us time to objectively evaluate the area and the type of home we wanted.

    The fact that Ethan grew up in Kelowna was also a great advantage since he could point things out to us that we might not have known. Your online website.kelownaproperties.com also worked well for us, especially because we’re not local -yet. Once Ethan set up the criteria for the kind of house we wanted, we were able to remotely see the market and the homes for sale in our price bracket.

    Ethan was also very responsive to all my questions. Over the past six months, I must have called and emailed him dozens of times. We had quite a communication going so that when it came time to make an offer on a house, my husband and I were well-informed. It only took a day and a half to find our dream home.

    As soon as we knew the Longley house was the one, Ethan negotiated the possession date and price for us–and we got a great deal–then we were on our way. There was one small hiccup before everything was confirmed, but Ethan took care of that as well. I recommend him without reservation.

    Darlene Patrick & Stephen Brown

    Ethan Rutley listened to what I was looking for and I never felt any pressure. He was also quick to respond to any questions I had and quick to get me into a house I was interested in. I’d highly recommend him!

    Lorraine Roth

    Ethan was very helpful made me feel confident and would definitely use him and recommend him to others in the future.

    Jerry Pranjic

    I had been searching the Kelowna area to purchase a home. In my search, I came across the name, Ethan Rutley from Mark Walker Real Estate. Although I didn’t at the start of my search, have a specific time frame, Ethan was very good about keeping in touch. I was very impressed with him and when the actual time came to actively start my search, Ethan was the one I contacted. He was great to work with, and had extensive knowledge regarding real estate. His patience with me was excellent, as I was actually all over the map as to what I wanted. He spent a lot of time with me to find what he knew I would be comfortable in.

    I would recommend Ethan to any of my family and friends. His follow up and response time with me was more than I have ever seen from any other Realtor I had previously worked with.

    I will be moving into my home in early January, and am very excited about what Ethan has found for me.

    Jennifer Melwicks

    Ethan was a tremendous help with my purchase. I could not have found a better real estate agent.

    A real gentleman.

    I could not have navigated through this deal without Ethan’s help.

    Cynthia Smith

    Ethan fully understood my special circumstances and requirements. He was quick to respond to all needs. Great agent!

    Eric Gordon

    Ethan was great to work with. He was always prompt when returning calls and followed up when info was required. We would definitely recommend Ethan.

    Rose-Ann, Kelowna

    Ethan takes all of the stress out of home buying & selling. Even with our quick sale and hiccups from our lender along the way, Ethan was able to to make this an enjoyable and exciting experience. He truly goes above and beyond for his clients. Thanks Ethan!

    Ethan is just awesome. He took care of everything. He even helped us to clean the condo we were moving from, and went alone with the movers to the new house because we needed to meet our layers for the last details of the transaction. We couldn’t have done it without him! We will recommend his service without any hesitation.

    Rose & Jeff, Kelowna

    We had a bad experience with another broker. Ethan seemed like a go-getter and was understanding of our needs. Ethan knows Kelowna well and so was very helpful when it was time to view homes. I am very particular about things as I knew what we were looking for and Ethan was very patient. I would use Ethan as my realtor again and would certainly recommend him to someone else. Ethan is very professional and friendly and is very comfortable to be with.

    Annabelle & John Schubert, Vernon, B.C.

    Ethan proved to be very patient while working with us over many months. He kept in touch with us as our situation kept changing with patience and understanding.

    Ethan didn’t waste our time looking at properties that he hadn’t researched to be sure that our dog and cat would both be allowed and we found the perfect condo on the first day.

    Thank you to you for being so professional!

    Lynne and Bill Kiselbach

    Ethan is friendly, easy to work with, responded to communication very quickly, honest about pros and cons of houses. Early on in working relationship, he was “coachable” and adaptable to make his working approach ideal for us.

    Ethan went above and beyond on a very quick timeline and with unexpected circumstances. We definitely felt that he had *our* best interests in mind, and prioritized us. He truly took his fiduciary responsibility to us as a realtor seriously, and this ultimately resulted in us being able to purchase the home. Other realtors may not have gone out of their way like he did.

    He made being a first-time home buyer both exciting and enjoyable, and we’re very happy with our new home.

    Jeff and Suzanne, Kelowna

    Ethan, after a brief consultation filtered out the properties that did not meet our criteria. Once these were established he took us to only the properties he thought we would like. This saved our time and his.

    He was very “intuitive” to our needs.

    John and Melody

    I knew Ethan from Cross fit. I saw the car and started the conversation about Big White. He knew a lot about Big White and was motivated to help find us a place.

    Super easy online process to purchase.

    Ethan is very easy to talk to, very positive attitude, not pushy in any way, very quick to respond to emails/texts/phone. Super fit too!

    Brent Rogers

    I couldn’t have done it without Ethan. His knowledge and expertise made the process fun and easy. Ethan kept me organized and on track. Thanks Ethan!

    Amanda Desilets

    When I listed my property with Walker Real Estate, we just came sign the contract and wait till someone gave us the offer we want and we don’t need to stress ourselves thinking about that place. When Ethan get a good offer he called and we are happy with the offer and we say yes! Thanks again Ethan you did a super excellent job!

    Magday Family, Vancouver

    Because of past bumps in the road, I think that this 3rd time Ethan showed me he really was attentive to my needs, and went full out to close the deal, I think he really understood. I also think he was able to communicate effectively to listing broker, in order to facilitate the closing of the deal. Ethan has proved he is much more confident ! WELL DONE!

    the only reason I would give him good on communication is when I was ready to offer , and stated my offer price, he waited till after I told him the offer price, to tell me they were lowering the listing price on the house….that should have been communicated to me , the minute Ethan knew.

    I will give my business to Walker again, and refer them, but I do think that this being my 3rd time doing business the owner should make an effort to say hello, when I attended the office….just saying…

    Laurie, West Kelowna

    We used Ethan Rutley 3 yrs ago when we moved to Kelowna and he was very good and helpful. When we decided to upgrade our home, we decided to ask for Ethan’s help again. Ethan was very helpful with every aspect of the buying and purchasing of our new home. He went above and beyond when he came over to take a look at the attic due to mold issues.

    Dave & Vickey – Kelowna

    We have dealt with Ethan in the past and we were very happy with the experience we had last time. Again, he proved himself in his knowledge of what we wanted. He listened to our needs and didn’t waste our time showing us properties that we would not be interested in. We would highly recommend him to friends and family.

    Dave Hawkins, Kelowna BC

    Ethan came highly recommended to us from our mortgage broker. He was extremely focused and attentive to our needs, was always quick to reply with answers to questions and made the whole process a lot easier than either my fiance or I, could have imagined. His knowledge of local neighbourhoods, punctuality, and professionalism were superb. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to lay roots in this wonderful area.

    Blaine and Kendra Foster – Glenrosa

    Ethan is a pleasure to work with – his objectivity and local knowledge helped us tremendously.

    D&C from Vancouver

    I met Ethan Rutley in 2014 when I inquired about a property in 2014. I never forget how detailed oriented and professional he was. Even though I did not buy the property at the time, Ethan continued to send me updated information on current listings. He never removed me from his email listing, so naturally, when this house was offered for sale, I telephoned him right away. Since then, throughout the entire process, Ethan continued to be extremely professional and knowledgeable about the market. As time goes by, I began seeking advice and I realize that his feedback/advice is very valuable and credible.

    Believe me, Ethan Rutley is a very comfortable, honest and accommodating person to talk to. I would recommend anyone to him, especially those first time home buyers, navigating the real estate market for the first time. You want to deal with someone who knows what they are doing.

    Janice, Kelowna BC

    Ethan is always professional, responsive, willing to go above and beyond. This was essential to have a broker we trusted as we live elsewhere. He was our eyes and ears with his feet on the ground providing us with regular updates and problem solving way beyond expectations. He is honestly the best realtor/broker we have ever dealt with.

    Nancy Esopenko

    Ethan made the process as seamless as possible, and made time for us whenever we needed. Treated us as if we were his only client.

    Rob And Katherine Schamerhorn

    Ethan Rutley was recommended to us by good friends who had recently relocated to Kelowna, and who were very happy with Ethan’s services and the property they purchased. Being out-of-town buyers, Ethan’s local knowledge was invaluable to us, and he very quickly grasped exactly what kind of home and neighbourhood we were seeking. Unfortunately, we then had to deal with a number of difficult offers that fell through due to unforeseen or unreasonable actions/circumstances involving the sellers. Ethan handled these situations professionally and reassuringly on our behalf, which was especially important considering our physical absence. Thanks to Ethan’s relentless efforts, we finally found our home and couldn’t be happier with the outcome. We highly recommend working with Ethan!

    Chris and Christine, Vancouver

    I would highly recommend using Ethan Rutley as a realtor. He was fantastic in every aspect of my condo purchase. He is knowledgeable, reliable, honest, and was always quick to respond to my millions of questions – top notch!

    Jill, Kelowna BC

    Ethan was the bomb always answered any questions I had in a timely fashion, and had my best interest at mind during this whole process.

    Joanne Gage – Kelowna Realtor® with Walker Real Estate

    Joanne found us our dream home at a dream price just by thinking of us when it came up. She really exceeded our expectations and met every need we had. As our first home purchase she answered any and all of our questions. Thanks for everything Joanne!

    Robert & Tanisha Adamik

    [Joanne was] Honest and sincerely helpful and patient, as buying a house can be stressful. She was more than willing to help at any time of the day and show properties and also answer any questions I had. If she did not know the answer she found out for us. I would recommend her to other people.

    Ye Lin

    Joanne Gage, gave us wonderful service, she showed us a few houses and was always on time for viewings. She was very accommodating with our work schedules and our time restriction we have on moving in. She went out of her way for anything we needed from her. I would recommend Joanne to anyone else looking to buy. She was very polite and very understanding.

    Sara Stankievech and Scott Parsley

    Joanne Gage has been amazing to deal with. She understood and got the deal closed quickly based on my timing requirements and I would recommend her to others who are looking to buy or sell.

    Baljinder & Justine Bhullar

    I have bought and sold many places in my lifetime; thus worked with many real estate agents. In general, I have never worked with anyone who demonstrated such a passion for satisfying both the seller and buyer as Joanne Gage. More specific, Joanne was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was prompt in responding to queries, knowledgeable about the job and illustrated excellent public relations skills in terms of dealing with a difficult buyer. In fact, I have already recommended Joanne to friends, family and business persons. Excellent work Joanne!!!

    Simone Landry

    Joanne Gage was extremely professional, accommodating and flexible with us – especially considering we were first time home buyers and inexperienced in this area. She provided us with the tools and knowledge we needed to make our decision but she was never pushy or made us feel uncomfortable. We highly recommend her services!

    Carlos de Figueiredo and Isabella de Assis

    Overall Joanne was great, we met her at a showing for her listing and she took down our info and got us on the Matrix nearly a year ago and that’s what led to us buying from her today. Joanne was always willing to show us properties at the drop of a hat and at times suitable to our schedule. Appreciate it.

    Amanda Thomas and Daniel Campbell

    Highly recommend her to family or friends based on my responses in the questionnaire.

    Sandra MacDonald Regina, Sk

    Joanne did an incredible job for us .She has sold 2 properties for us over the past year. Sold a property last year for us in 3 days and our current home in 7 days !!

    Joanne got top $ for us on both properties we sold, and helped us negotiate GREAT DEALS on the properties we purchased . My wife Debra and I could not be happier with Joanne’s performance . She priced our properties correctly. We took her advice all the way and were very pleased we did !Joanne also helped sell and purchase a home for our daughter and son in law approx 1.5 years ago . They were going from a condo to a house and Joanne was very patient and kind to them through their first home purchase, and helped them find a property they love .

    We would recommend Joanne Gage to anyone and everyone, and we have many times . She is an honest, timely in her response to questions, efficient, and is lots of fun. Basically an awesome real estate broker . Thank you Joanne for all of your help !

    Kindest Regards

    Debra & Randy Stuart

    She provided me with the expertise and patient kindness that I really needed at a stressful time in my life. Selling your home is always stressful and anxiety producing. Joanne guided me through the process step by step.She was aware of my needs and was always available for any questions. I felt that she truly had my best interests at heart.

    Patricia Sweeney

    Joanne Gage was easy to be around, fun to talk with, and she got the job done quickly, which in my opinion, is very important.

    Joanne Gage is professional, and she replies instantly, with or without an answer… she let’s you know she’s working on it.

    We were happy with her, no fuss, no muss, right to the point, the way we like.

    Lena Karlstrom, Kelowna

Joanne made herself available at all times and answered any questions or requests that we had very promptly. She was very personable and a pleasure to work with.

    Vrabel, Alison Kelowna

    We always found Joanne to be readily available to view properties. Very pleasant to deal with.

    Kept in touch with us, and was readily able to answer questions by telephone or email.

    I would recommend Joanne Gage to clients searching for a home or selling theirs. She is a well-informed realtor and was very helpful to both my husband and myself.

    Suzanne Shott, Kelowna, BC

    Joanne took the initiative to politely call and touch bases with me when I was browsing listings. Her pleasant manner and years of experience were definitely a contributing factor to my selection of an agent. Thank you Joanne for making my home purchase process easier, your assistance, patience, and understanding has been greatly appreciated.

    Mark Walker – Kelowna Realtor® (and owner) with Walker Real Estate

    It takes confidence, experience and exceptional people-skills to be a good Realtor. Julia Priest and Mark Walker have all of that. As a result of their knowing the market well, a smart strategy, and strong negotiation skills, the process of the sale and the final outcome could not have gone better.

    Julia Priest and Mark Walker co-listed our Mother’s property, so all the praises sung for Mark apply to Julia as well. They were a great team that got the job done quickly and with the very least amount of inconvenience to Mom.

    Honorable mention goes to the team’s office manager Hedy, who took care of the paperwork. She is smart, detailed, accurate, energetic and totally dependable. Offices can’t run properly without someone like Hedy. She is “the glue” that holds it all together.

    Ella Kostaschuk and Sandra Brask

    I’ve worked with Mark Walker in the past and will continue to in the future. Reason being is he gets results. I’ve bought through Mark because he finds properties that fit, represent value, and isn’t afraid to speak his mind. If Mark doesn’t see value in a property, he will flat out tell you. I’ve sold through Mark Walker and have never been disappointed. He says what your property will sell for and he’s usually bang on. I would say that his greatest asset over other agents is his ability to read people; it pays dividends when Mark is in your negotiating corner.

    Wayne Mah

    Our home had been on the market for 6 months with another agent with few showings. By virtually staging our property, Mark had more showings in the first 2 weeks than in the entire previous 6 months.

    Danny & Christine Phillips

    We were in a pickle to try and get into the most sought after neighbourhood in the city. We used Mark in the past and didn’t hesitate a second to ask him to help us find the perfect house.  Within an hour of the house getting listed Mark was on it. Making sure that we in to see it within a few hours and that we were able to make an offer that night. We were able to get in before multiple offers could even be made and the negotiations better than anyone else could have done.  We are not only in the location of our dreams but we got the house of our dreams! This was all thanks to Mark Walker!

    Rob and May Kisteleki

    Mark Walker and his team did an amazing job and I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a property in Kelowna. He really impressed me with the negotiations that took place and was able to get an extra $12,000 after what was a low offer.

    Thank you Mark, fantastic job and looking forward to working with you again in the near future.

    Chad, Kelowna

    He was awesome, professional, knew our needs, had a good understanding on what we were trying to achieve.

    He really put ourselves at ease and stress free.

    Everyone was great to deal with.

    My wife and I sold 3 houses previously and the agents were not even close to the service from Mark.

    Larry, Kelowna

    I’ve worked with Mark in past and will continue to do so in future transactions. There was one real-estate deal that I went with a friend who is a realtor, and it turned out to be a disaster. Mark’s negotiating, attention to detail and ability to get things done are second to none. You can’t go wrong with Mark in your corner.

    Wayne

    Mark Walker was excellent every step of the way with both the purchase of our new condo and the sale of our house. He listened to what we wanted and how we wanted it done and accommodated our requests completely. He offered great advice and was not offended, or ‘put out’. if we decided not to follow it. Communication was excellent with great accessibility by phone or email, at all hours. Mark is extremely knowledgeable, having completed thousands of transactions, which means he kept a cool head and never got emotional. His negotiating skills were also bad ass. He saved and made us, a lot of dollar.

    If you want a straight talking, direct and honest realtor, then Mark Walker is your man. It’s extremely rare that we work with someone and are 100% satisfied with the process and outcome and so far I can honestly say I’m 100% satisfied.

    His supporting cast were also outstanding especially our ‘showing agent’ Carole.

    Claire

    We were really impressed with Mark Walker and his professional staff. His marketing team had a major impact on the sale and was a key factor in us obtaining the maximum value for our house. Thank you to Mark Walker Real Estate and his entire team!

    Brandon and Miranda Russell

    Mark helped us find our dream home and made owing it a reality.

    Kimberley Stawnichy

    Mark provided the ultimate client experience. Mark is knowledgeable and savvy and he does a great job of managing expectations. Mark is completely trustworthy and made the selling process an enjoyable one.

    Best decision choosing Geralynn! She did everything right and made it a special experience for buying my first home!

    Jaryn McLean

    Wendy Kalliris

    We have purchased a home before in Saskatchewan as well as had a different agent in Kelowna, Geralynn is by far the best Realtor we have dealt with. Geralynn is one of the easiest people to get along with that I have ever met. She made house hunting fun and really knew what we were looking for. She actually cared about us! She is fantastic.

    Elisa Mess, Kelowna

    Geralynn was both very personal as well as professional. I think she took my situation and respected what my needs were.

    Totally open and honest with no pressure. I was more than comfortable working with her and would have her as my agent any time.

    I would recommend her to anyone who needs an agent. Thank you Geralynn.

    Maxine Cornell

    Best agent I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Got me my dream property! Thank you.

    Heath, Kelowna

    I had done an internet search and typically most listings can be found on a multitude of sites. I made some inquiries on a different property than the one we ultimately bought, but Geralynn was the first to respond, was very helpful and put us at ease right from the start. She is professional and looked after us and made sure that our best interests were looked after. We knew what we wanted and Geralynn listened and did not try to sell us on something she wanted but she made sure we got what we wanted. Geralynn recommended an inspector who came on a Saturday morning along with Geralynn and they both worked to make sure that everything was as it should be. That was critical to us since we do not live in Kelowna. We were concerned about sound in the condo we were buying and Geralynn helped the inspector by making noise in various locations including running a washing machine and dryer to check sound levels in the unit which were all included in the report. We were also concerned about plumbing issues, but again the inspector was thorough including thermal images which helped to confirm the plumbing as well as electrical. When the time came to look after the legal end of the transaction, Geralynn put us in contact with a local firm who again looked after our needs. In Kelowna, Geralynn is the realtor I will use in the future! Thank you so much Geralynn!

    Rolf Holzkaemper – Regina, Saskatchewan

    Long Distance real estate transactions can be difficult and frustrating….From the moment I met Geralynn on the telephone I knew she would be a pleasure to work with. She was attentive, enthusiastic with a wonderful sense of humor peppered in with her professional attitude. Thank you Geralynn for making this a positive experience!

    David James Doody, Kelowna, BC
