What our Clients are Saying

Know Jen from years back. Had a sure feeling the experience with her would be solid and I can say I was definitely right.

Chris Mayeda

Jennifer was very professional and responsive to our requests. We really appreciated the time she took to sit down and determine what we were looking for in a new house. She had great inventory prepared for us to view on top of the houses we had identified to her. She was always prompt in her response to our questions and kept us up to date with changes in the status of properties.
We would definitely recommend Jennifer to anyone relocating to Kelowna and we’ve suggested her name to a few people already.

HOW DO I KNOW WHEN IT'S TIME TO SELL MY HOME?
+

Call us! If you’re sitting on the fence thinking about selling, we can help guide you to the best right time to sell. Read our guide to learn more. 

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO GET MY HOME READY TO SELL?
+

Call us! Seriously. We can only accurately advise once we’ve seen inside and assessed your home. Calling us to view your home and conduct a complimentary comparative analysis should be your first step. Then you can declutter and depersonalize your home so potential buyers can picture themselves living there. Of course, you should give your home a good cleaning. And, we will advise you on any touch-ups and to-dos that might make your home more attractive to your potential buyer.  Contact us to schedule an appointment.  We’d love to see your home and let you know what you might need to do to get your home ready to list

WHAT HOME IMPROVEMENTS DO I NEED TO DO TO GET MY HOME READY TO SELL?
+

Maybe nothing. Depending on your neighbourhood and price range, your home might sell quickly, at market value, without tackling any major projects. Once again, we need to see inside your home and compare it to what else is on the market to advise on the right strategy to sell your home. Depending on your home and price range, there will be some improvements that may yield a high return on investment. But, before you take on a renovation, we invite you to invite us over so we can ensure you put your money where the money is.  Contact us to learn more.

WHAT WILL MY HOME SELL FOR?
+

We will work with you to determine a pricing strategy you are comfortable with. Any home has a range of prices it could theoretically attract a buyer at. It is important we conduct a comprehensive comparative market analysis to accurately determine the right list price. While there are computer programs that will spit out a price based on your address, we know each home is unique and should be professionally priced to reflect that. It’s important to see inside and learn about the home to provide an accurate recommendation.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SELL MY HOME?
+

The average home in Kelowna will sell based on market conditions and our strategy. Whether your home will sell faster or slower depends on a variety of factors including neighbourhood, condition, price, and market activity. If you need to sell your home quickly, we can adopt a more aggressive pricing and marketing strategy to help your home fetch the best price in the quickest amount of time.

A HOME ON MY STREET IS FOR SALE. SHOULD I WAIT TO SELL?
+

No. Let’s use existing listings to our advantage. We can use the data from the current homes on the market to assist in determining the list price for your home, and a unique marketing strategy.

WE ARE HEADING INTO WINTER SO SHOULD WE WAIT TO LIST?
+

Homes sell throughout the year, but we always look at your home to determine the right time to list based on market activity, the season, repairs needed, or personal items on the horizon. Your partnership with Nyrose & Associates will make selling your home less stressful. We bring you into the selling process so you are aware of how things are moving along. We don’t want to list your home if the timing is not right or there are issues that should determine a delay in your listing. We want this experience to be positive for everyone, including you and the new homeowner.
