“We are professionals and would expect nothing less than the best from ourselves and for our clients.”
Reason #1 – Education and Experience
Tamara has been a licensed realtor since 1995, with Kelowna real estate market experience covering a broad range of buying and selling opportunities. When Shannon brought her marketing degree and expertise to join her sister in 2005, they became a dynamic team focused on achieving the best results for their clients on every purchase or sale.
Says Shannon, “Our relationship with our clients is seamless which really gives them the benefit of two realtors for the price of one!” Our parents (Bruce and Patti Stone) began selling Kelowna real estate many years ago (1978 for Bruce and 1985 for Patti) and they taught us a tremendous amount (we learned real estate negotiating skills at the dining room table). Though Bruce and Patti no longer have their real estate licenses (they retired in 1999 and 2002) they like to remain involved and we meet frequently to discuss our marketing strategies. There is incredible value in having a sounding board to run ideas by.
We are a high energy team who pride ourselves on thinking outside the box and finding creative ways to make our clients wishes come true. We believe one of the keys to doing so is our awareness of current market conditions and opportunities and our ability to communicate effectively with our team and our clients.
We are determined to deliver the very best service to every client – we truly love to help their real estate dreams be fulfilled.
Reason #2 – Internet Presence
Experts say that over 94% of home buyers today begin their search online. It’s important your home is found first and found often!
www.StonesSisters.com ranks very high (usually in the top 1 or 2) when searching Google for Kelowna Real Estate. We get more visits on our website than most other Realtors in the area.
When you list your Kelowna real estate with the Stone Sisters, you can rest assured your home will be viewed by as many buyers as possible. In addition to promoting our listings on www.StonesSisters.com we advertise all of our listings on Craig’s list, Castanet.net, OpenHouseKelowna.com, REMAX.com and others.
We realize that in order to serve our clients better we need to be the best and most unique. That is why we go the extra mile to create more of a presence for your property – in Kelowna as well as throughout the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, across Canada and throughout the world.
Reason #3 – Out Of Town Promotions
We carefully analyze the statistics on our website and we realize a large number of the visitors to our site are from outside the Central Okanagan. Rather than waiting for the buyers to come to Kelowna, we promote and market our listings in cities buyers are coming from. We attend recreation home shows in Alberta, hold information sessions, and promote many other strategies to help market your home to a larger audience of buyers.
Additionally, Shannon and Tamara attend RE/MAX conferences throughout the year and promote their properties to the agents they come in contact with.
Reason #4 – Cross Canada Referrals
Tamara & Shannon are proud to be the Kelowna representatives of CCR (Cross Canada Referral Group). This is a high powered collection of the top agents with RE/MAX across Canada (one individual or team per city) and our award winning members are among the Top 100 agents with RE/MAX across the country.
There are mandatory production requirements that ensure the agents who are part of this group are Kelowna real estate market leaders. We have monthly teleconferences and meet in person 4 times a year. This gives us an incredible opportunity to promote our listings to some of the best agents in Canada.
The Stone Sisters pride themselves on being different. We are continually updating our marketing program to keep up with today’s changing world. We are passionate about where we live and love promoting our Kelowna real estate a to the world.
