Our Story



I was brought up in Kelowna. and received my BSc Honors in Physiology from UBC Vancouver. I was mentored by my mother, a first class Realtor. After she had a serious stroke I carried on with the family business- earning my own stripes as a Top Award Winner … carrying on the family tradition of Excellence and First Class Service for 15 years! We then spent the next 10 years on staff at a local church working with families. I’ve been back working and serving in the Real Estate Industry since 2005. I am also an accomplished musician, playing piano, drums, competitive jazz and recording. A hilight for me was my 3rd place finish in Canada in Hobie 18′ Catamaran Sailboat Racing. Currently I enjoy all our beautiful city has to offer by skiing, golfing, biking, tennis and my squash league. I love travelling and adventuring with Reece- my wife of 35 years, and partner in family life & business. I’m so proud of my 4 kids and now love being Papa to my 9 grandkids.



I grew up in a happy family with 2 sisters. My dad was a pastor and much of the joy and love I find in being with people come from my growing up years. After graduating at the top of my high school, I spent 2 years at Bible College, then attended the University of Cebu in the Philippines for a year. This cross cultural experience was a life and mindset changing experience for me! I loved being at home raising our 4 kids and now adore being Grami to my 9 wee grandkiddies. I am passionate about helping our clients by providing clear communication, creative marketing and a systematic & efficient approach to handling the high volume of business we do. I love the personal connection of our work and am able to bring a a complimentary component to the house hunting and buying experience. Working with the man of my dreams is the best part! When I’m not working I love to be outside- biking, hiking, gardening and being on my paddleboard! .


While Shawn worked in real estate, he and Reece also loved being involved in their local church community. After 10 years in real estate, Shawn and his family were asked if they would consider coming on staff at their local church. Honouring Jesus was the primary focus in their lives, and they decided they would trust God and go for it.  They worked full-time in their church community for 10 years with families, children, and teens. In 2005, Shawn came back into the real estate business, this time with his wife Reece as his client concierge. Their passion for helping people continued. Their work together as a couple provides a unique combination of perspectives and talents. Shawn and Reece’s performance has put him in the Top 3 of Royal LePage Kelowna’s 200+ Realtor Force for the last 17 years, ranking Shawn Top 2% Nationally,  and in the BC Royal LePage’s Top 10 in 2009, 2013, 2014, and 2016.  Their love of people combined with their desire to provide 5 Star excellence and service has built a loyal growing group of clients who are confident that their needs, and the needs of their families, friends and those they refer, will be met!


Shawn and Reece got married in 1988 and within a couple of years started a family having 4 kids within a 6 year period . . . wow! Family is everything to them, and they cherish all the years of growing up together; fun, games, camping and motorhoming, sports, skateboard competitions, snowboarding, coaching soccer, going to more dance competitions and festivals than you can imagine, and just enjoying life. Life was rich experiences and having fun together. Josh, their oldest, is now a Senior Manager at Grant Thornton, and is married to amazing Amy and have 3 of the cutest grandgirlies- Willa, Millie and Autumn.

Kait and Jordy have added grandbaby #6, Bia Jade to the tribe!  Shawn and Reece are loving this new season of being Grami & Papa!/span>



Shawn grew up in Kelowna and came from a real estate family. His mom Olivia was an icon in the Real Estate Industry. She not only set the standard for excellence in Real Estate, but also paved the way for women in business in Kelowna—a rarity in the 1960’s! She was the #1 Realtor in the whole Okanagan Valley for a mind boggling 22 years. She was known for her quick mind, her compassionate heart, her strong negotiating skills, and her incomparable big style!  You knew when Olivia walked into a room, and even better, Olivia knew you.

Shawn began working with his mom during summers while he went to University. They worked on on everything from Carpenter’s Specials, to Luxury Estates, from New Homes to Heritage homes, from condos to full Apartment blocks, from farms to commercial buildings, from gas stations to restaurants to hotels … they did it all! In 1990, His Mom was the guest speaker at the annual Canadian Real Estate convention, and on her way, she suffered a massive debilitating stroke. Shawn was thrust in to managing the family business. People knew Olivia , but who was this “wet behind the ears” young buck?! Within 3 years he was back in the top 3 in the office. In the mean time Shawn married the love of his life, had 4 amazing kids (within 6 years!), and got to learn from his wife how to balance babies and business, career and home. His mom would be proud of the Integrity that Shawn is known for, and for how he combines his love of being with and helping people with fiercely effective negotiating skills and contract writing prowess! We continue to be a TRUSTED FAMILY NAME IN OKANAGAN REAL ESTATE!
