People are at the heart of real estate for this Okanagan team

We often talk about real estate in terms of a financial transaction or investment. While both those things are definitely true, they ignore the fact that most often, real estate is about people – someone’s first home, memories they made at the family cottage, or the home where they raised their children.

It’s a philosophy firmly at the heart of the business for Mathew Lewis and Karen Lewis, the Managing Broker/Owners of RE/MAX Wine Capital Realty.

Mathew and Karen launched the brokerage in 2006 after moving to the south Okanagan in the early ’90s, and today 14 full-time agents are serving the needs one home buyers and sellers throughout the Okanagan Valley.

As a smaller, boutique agency, they’re able to embrace that personal aspect of their business, which, married with a commitment to smart and hard work, has helped the brokerage earn No. 1 market share since their opening almost 20 years ago.

“Our business strategy has been to outwork the competition, provide steadfast consistency, all while continually striving to ensure our customers are happy with their real estate decisions”.

This client-first approach recognizes that as realtors, their job is to help clients navigate what can be a very stressful time, whether someone is purchasing their first condo, downsizing from the family home or expanding commercial or agriculture businesses

“A lot of real estate is very much focused on ‘the deal.’ We like to make sure our clients have options. It’s very important that they’re comfortable with their decisions,” Mathew says.

“A lot of our agents have been with us right from the start of their careers,” a testament to the brokerage’s approach.

“It’s essential, in a smaller community, that we’re skilled in both sides of real estate – both buying and selling,” Mathew notes. In addition, the team also manages hundreds of rental properties in the area.
