I started my Real Estate career at arguably one of the worst down markets Kelowna had seen in years. Everyone thought I was crazy! However, not only did I manage to survive through the first couple years, I was able to exponentially grow my business and by my second year I was the recipient of the Masters Silver sales award. The market may have been going down, but I was going up! I have won a sales award every year since, the most recent being the Masters Diamond award for my sales in 2015 and Emerald in 2016.
I genuinely love Real Estate. My own portfolio of investment properties as well as over 6 years in the business can leave you rest assured you are in excellent, experienced hands. My work ethic and honesty (although sometimes brutal!) is what sets me apart, and my clients truly know I am always looking out for their best interests.
I have lived in Kelowna for over 25 years. My knowledge of the area coupled with my passion for the industry is why working with me generates results.
I thoroughly enjoy working with developers on various types of residential development endeavors. As the city continues to grow and expand I find myself spending a lot of time studying the OCP and helping developers make profitable investment decisions. From finding the right piece of land or property, to making smart design and finishing selections I have a true passion for every aspect that goes into development. I have worked on single family residential projects such as The Vines on Inverness, to Multi Family units as seen with the Kelowna City Living line of homes. Taking dirt and being part of the team that turns that dirt into beautiful homes excites me and has become a large part of my business.
I have taken a special enjoyment to working with first time home buyers as well as buyer re-locating from other areas. I make a point of taking the extra time needed with first time home buyers to make sure they understand the entire buying process and are educated and comfortable along the way. I know your first home is exciting as well as scary, and I am grateful for the trust and faith my first time home buyers have in me.
Its always exciting welcoming clients that are relocating from other cities. It reminds me how lucky we are to live here. I take so much pride showing buyers around our beautiful city. Much like first time home buyers, people re-locating from other areas heavily rely on their agent to really listen to what they are looking for and educate them on the market. There is a high level of trust to be earned by a REALTOR® working with both first time home buyers and people new to the city. These types of relationships are the exact reasons why I love what I do. For someone to fully trust me with the purchase of their first home, or their first home in the area is an incredible feeling and something I take very seriously.
As a REALTOR®, my business philosophy is to make your Real Estate experience comfortable, and personalized. I believe that honesty and integrity are needed in every relationship. I make it a priority to put you first. I am there for my clients every step of the way and pride myself on being there through the up's and down's you will face when getting into the market.
As the city continues to grow and development opportunities arise I find myself spending a lot of time reading the OCP and working with developers and investors in acquiring smart investment properties, RU7 properties in particular. I have helped multiple out of town developers break into the profitable Kelowna market by purchasing and developing RU7 properties. As such, I have become the 'go to girl' for these types of investments. From finding the right RU7 property, to making smart design choices and executing a successful marketing and sales campaign I truly love being a part of the entire process. The developers I work with appreciate my hands on approach and vast knowledge surrounding these transactions. To see some of the projects Ive worked on click here.
Throughout the years I have also really come to enjoy working with first time home buyers and buyers re-locating from other cities. I love helping guide first time home buyers through the entire process. There is so much to learn when buying a home and I truly enjoy spending the extra time with my first time home buyers to educate them about the market, what to look for in a home, and how to spot key things in a property that will protect their investment and encourage growth in equity. There are few things more satisfying to me than handing over keys to someone who has just purchased their very first home.
I am an expert negotiator, and pride myself on being an out of the box thinker. I love finding new and creative ways to solve problems that my clients may face.
I am very dedicated to health and fitness. When I am not with clients, you will most likely find me in the gym. I competed in my first bodybuilding competition in May 2015. I trained and dieted for and entire year to prepare for the show. I placed 2nd in my class, advancing me to the 2016 Provincial championships where I won 1st in my class and took the Overall 1st place title in the entire BC Bikini division. My placement went down in BCABBA history as the first bikini athlete to win an overall title at the first ever drug tested, all natural Provinvial Championships. Next up, Nationals!
My other passion is motorcycles. I have been riding since 2012. The Okanagan is so beautiful and there is absolutely no better way to experience it than on a bike. Im pretty easy to spot in the summer on my florescent yellow Ninja ZX6 or my obnoxiously loud custom Harley Davidson Sportster 48. Don't be surprised on a sunny day if I show up on my bike to show you a house!

Call it crazy but we moved to Kelowna from another province without ever visiting the city before. We were very fortunate to have enlisted Taylor to help us with this adventure. Her knowledge of the market and the local community gave us the confidence we needed in choosing the perfect house. We put an in offer while still out of province conditional upon seeing the property (which we are happy to say is now our home). No wasted time and no burden of additional travel costs to shop the market. It turns out we are in the perfect location for our needs and couldn’t be happier with our decision.
Taylor handled everything with a level of professionalism and integrity that is not always commonplace in real estate. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a competent and reliable agent who truly has her client’s interests at heart.
It was a pleasure working with you. Thanks for helping us make our dream a reality.

We started working with Taylor when we were looking to buy our first home. From the beginning, we found Taylor to be understanding of our needs as first time home buyers. We found Taylor to be professional, personable and relatable. She made herself available whenever we had a question or wanted to book a showing. She allayed our fears and made us feel very comfortable during the entire process. Taylor was knowledgeable and helped us understand the process of making an offer, how to read the related documentation and how to work through the purchase of a strata lot. Taylor was honest and up-front and provided appropriate feedback. Taylor was also able to refer us to her contacts in the industry who walked us through obtaining a mortgage, having a home inspection and closing the deal. She is an excellent realtor who we would highly recommend to anyone who is buying or selling a home.

Being a first time home buyer, there was a mixture of anxiety and apprehensiveness that came with the quest to finding the right home! Taylor simplified the process and patiently walked me through step by step and answered all of my (many) questions and concerns. I found her to be very accommodating and she delivered on everything she committed to in a timely manner! I felt like she was looking out for my best interests and went over and above to make sure I felt 100% about the purchase. I relied on her for her honest advice and trusted her knowledge and expertise, and she came through exceeding my expectations. I would highly recommend Taylor to anyone buying or selling!
