Welcome to my website "PROPERTY BC"

As a CENTURY 21® Real Estate professional, I am dedicated to providing you with the highest quality service possible. My personal knowledge of the Okanagan Real Estate market is combined with the power of the CENTURY 21 brand - the most recognized name in Real Estate today.  It is an honor for me to assist you with valuable information about the Okanagan Market.

I can help you list your home or buy a property  in Kelowna and area, Lake Country, Vernon and Coldstream, Lavington, Lumby and Cherryville, Armstrong and Enderby, Falkland and Salmon Arm.

Whether you are coming from different areas in BC or out-of-province or the country, relocating and looking for a house, a condo/strata, an acreage, a farm or ranch, a waterfront property or cottage and even if it is a lot on which to build your dream home I can help you!

I have a deep passion about educating people about real estate.   With my diligent hard work and dedication I will connect you with the lifestyle you always wanted to have and the property you have always dreamed of in the Okanagan Valley!

Our beautiful Okanagan lake is surrounded by peaceful nature & amazing trails.Imagine living here!

Ready to buy a home?  Let me help you !

In the Okanagan I am here to work with you!  If you haven't found the right property through the PROPERTIES listed  on my webpage, allow me to work with you to the next level.  Tell me what you are looking for and I will help you to attain your goals.

I will research and provide you with everything you need to know about the Okanagan market and properties in the neighborhood that is right for you.

I will create specifically for you a "customized"  MLS Home Search (Multiple Listing Service) with pictures and important information and  will give you regular updates on new and price reduced homes to help you with your objectives.   With my hard work and commitment I go the extra mile to make sure we reach your goals and  find you your piece of paradise!

Getting ready to sell your property?  I'm here to help!

You are getting ready to put your house on the market and you are not too sure where to start. I am here to help you and when we meet to discuss further about your goals I will explain step-by-step about my marketing plan and strategies and discuss in depth about our goals for success!  

  • I can prepare for you a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) whether you want to sell or simply want to know the value of your home.  This  will help to determine the market value of your property and will be presented to you with all details.  This is complementary at no cost to you and you are under no obligation. 
  • I offer a superior marketing plan to my clients.  Selling your home is not just about putting a "For Sale" sign on your lawn.  Your home will be advertised to millions of people and will be on multiple sites for maximum exposure.  I have an "extensive marketing plan"  including various strategies to achieve our goals. I will go through the details when we discuss further about your objectives to sell your property.
  • I provide a beautiful  and professional brochure  with high resolution color pictures and details of your home. I work with a professional photographer and marketing experts.
  • I offer to my clients a consultation with a professional Home Stager.  This complementary service  from me is at no cost to you and is a great opportunity  to help you prepare your home.

Did you know that carefully preparing your home for sale is just as important as pricing it right and marketing it? The first impression is formed the moment that potential buyers drive by your property and during the first seconds when they walk through your front door. Hélène will give you her best recommendations to help you prepare your home to the best it can be so that it can appeal to the broadest possible range of buyers, and sell in the shortest possible time for the highest possible price! You can check her website at www.voiladesign.ca/staging. When we are ready to list your home I will make arrangements with Hélène to select a time at your convenience.

Testimonials

  • "Glenn Szabo is a very professional realtor that "thinks outside the box", which is what we needed!  My husband and I had 9 realtors through our home before Glenn Szabo came, mainly because we felt it was a difficult home to price. Glenn's professional spirit and friendly nature was a breath of fresh air. We listed our home through him and were pleased at how much work and effort he went through to get us the best possible price. We ended up selling our home for about more than most realtors would have listed it at in the first place. He was calm and reassuring when we needed it, and he even would help prepare us for an open house. I believe that Glenn Szabo was a great realtor and we have already recommended him to some friends who also have listed with him as well. Glenn was available any time I called about the sale. I would count him as a friend now, and if you knew how we viewed realtors before, you would see what an impact Glenn made! "    H & D.

My Other Interests

A Passion for Nature!  Here are a few wood pieces that I created in the last few years.

As well as traveling, hiking, Nordic skiing and following my favorite teams ( Riders, Lakers , U of R Cougars and UBCO Heat), I have an interest in the artistic community that we find here in the Okanagan.  Over the years, I have developed a passion for working with wood.  I love nature and working in my workshop is a place where I enjoy creating  a variety of wood bowls, platters and vases using my lathe and carving tools.  My wife Hélène who is a professional arts educator and an artist has a Studio Gallery in the Vernon Foothills where I showcase my work.  We really enjoy working together as a team as she assists me with my marketing and  her services in Home Staging for my clients.  This is Hélène's website  www.voiladesign.ca  where you can also find my wood work in the gallery section.   Occasionally I showcase my work in galleries and in some shows in the Okanagan Valley.  As a member, I am also on the Board of Directors of the North Okanagan Wood turner's Guild.  

Here I am showcasing and selling my work at the Annual Okanagan Artisan's Guild Show at the Best Western Plus Vernon Lodge and Conference Center in Vernon.

 

In this last picture, this is a bowl sculpture that I created with Box Elder wood.
