Dear Reader

We are excited to see many signs of an improving market in the Okanagan and looking forward to seeing the swing from Buyer's market to Balanced to Seller's market. It has been a frustrating time for Sellers but we now are experiencing the beginning of frustration for Buyers in the lower end of the market as lower inventory is starting to cause Buyers to compete for well valued homes. That will translate into a faster market for the middle and upper end of pricing and good news is that the Vancouver & Alberta markets are continuing to upswing and those Buyers are able to purchase in the North Okanagan.

Other changes are taking place as Barb & Cal are heading back to their roots in the White Rock / South Surrey area of the Lower Mainland. Barb will be licensing with the RE/MAX office in White Rock - RE/MAX Colonial Pacific Realty Ltd. which (like Vernon) has an outstanding reputation in the community along with higher sales per agent and per office than other companies in the area.

Barb is excited to be close to granddaughter Arianna Joy and daughter Andrea and to be close to family and long time friends. Cal will be in Vernon for the next few months to help with the smooth transitioning of our wonderful client friends as Shawna continues to support all your Real Estate needs in the professional, full service, high quality effort The Open Door Team has always offered.

Barb will also be in close touch with Shawna and will be in the position to co-list through the White Rock office offering double exposure for our Seller clients.

Shawna will continue with the same direct office line at 250-503-3461 and although the look will slightly change to the website and paper advertising to support Shawna's name the same professional virtual tours, Buyer, Seller, Investor and Rent-to-Own support will remain the same. All contact through or will be redirected to Shawna for consistency, quality follow-up and support.

We are so thrilled to have worked closely with Shawna these past 2 ½ years and know many of you have had the opportunity to work alongside of Shawna and experience her wealth of knowledge, top winning negotiations skills, investment & foreclosure experience, follow-through and vast experience in the Vernon area market.

Shawna's cell # is 250-558-7333 or direct office line 250-503-3461.

Barb's new cell is 604-367-7788 and email is and she looks forward to keeping in touch with you and if you have any friends, relatives, business associates who are looking to buy or sell in the Lower Mainland, White Rock, South Surrey, Surrey, Cloverdale, Langley areas Barb would be honoured to work alongside of them.

We are sincerely grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of your lives and hope we can continue to keep in touch.

Blessings to you,

Barb & Cal & Shawna
