I've grown up in Summerland and am from a pioneer family. Consequently I have a solid knowledge of 
Summerland's properties and their histories, and I've known the families that have lived there.  I take special pride in helping my clients through my long connections within the community.  My clients become friends as I often help them ease into and become a part of this vibrant and friendly small town. 
Summerland IS The Okanagan's best kept secret.
