Hi there everyone,
Thanks for checking out the website! I am so excited to team up with Royal LePage Kelowna and launch OKGNhomes.ca. I hope you find the site a great resource in the search for your next home.
My name is Justin Wyllie. I grew up in North Vancouver and was raised in a highly entrepreneurial family. When I was young, my father Bob was a grocery store owner of a large national chain and my mother Marg owned and operated 4 retail clothing stores. It is fair to say I spent a few hours as a young man facing shelves and folding clothes! My mom ended up selling her clothing stores and has now been a Realtor for over 35 years, but we will get to that part in just a bit! These early days must have planted a seed in my brain as make-money-ventures were always popping up at our house. Whether it was a lemonade stand on the front lawn or a car wash weekend in the driveway, I was always looking for a new way to make money. I took this passion into my high school years and excelled in the business program. I took every course available and ran the school store for a number of years. I found a new passion for marketing and advertising and was constantly being brought into the Principal’s office for pushing the boundaries of school age appropriate advertising. What can I say? I was creative and sales were up.. way up! I left high school and attended a combination of UNBC and Capilano University to earn a Business Administration Diploma with focuses in Advertising and Marketing. After finishing my diploma, my mother Marg came calling and wanted me to join her in Real Estate… see I told you this part was coming.
We started working as a team in the Lower Mainland in 2004. Teamed up, I was able to draw from Marg’s wealth of knowledge of the industry and combine it with my passion for creative marketing. Together we successfully serviced 325 clients over a 16 year period. In fact, if any of my past clients are checking in, I want to say I hope you are all well and I thank you for all your continuous support over the years! I have learned so much working with you all as every deal is as different as the client with whom you are working. Over the years that has become the part of the job that I enjoy the most, the ability to meet and work with such a diversity of people and ultimately help them make their home ownership goals a reality. But things were about to change…
My wife Lolita is the owner of Rangel Immigration Services, a boutique immigration firm that focuses on providing labour solutions to the Canadian Agricultural industry. After a few years in business, it became apparent that many of her clients were located in the Central Okanagan and we decided to jump at the opportunity to move to the area. In 2019, my wife Lolita and I moved to Lake Country with our 3-year-old daughter Mariana. Yes the move was initially motivated by my wife’s business, but we also wanted what was best for our daughter. We wanted her growing up in an area with excellent education, endless recreation, and an overall higher quality of life. My wife and I didn’t mind all the amazing wineries in the area either! Moving came with its own challenges, however we have been in Lake Country for a year now and we couldn’t be happier calling this community home.
I feel fortunate to have a career in Real Estate because it allows me to reach out to the community in which I live and volunteer my time and expertise. Prior to leaving the Lower Mainland, I had 7 years of service in the Rotary Club of Coquitlam Sunrise. Through Rotary I was able to support several key social programs. I have received the Realtor Care Award® for outstanding community service and to this day it remains one of my most cherished recognitions. When we moved to the Okanagan, part of my decision to join Royal LePage Kelowna was their exceptional commitment to the community and I can’t wait to team up with all the agents who are already doing so much to help those in need.
I also feel fortunate to work in an industry where I can pick up my business and move to a new community. In the excitement of launching in Kelowna, I have taken the opportunity to use some of that creative spice that used to frustrate my high school principle and put it to use in transforming the service experience for my clients. My promise to everyone that entrusts me to sell their home is to not only provide professional and knowledgeable service, but to also provide a stress free and memorable experience that will not be forgotten! My newly designed “Authentic Listing Program” is something that I can’t wait to show you! I welcome you to reach out should you ever have any real estate questions and I can’t wait to assist you on your next home buying or selling journey.
Mari D. Justin is extremely helpful, very efficient and responds so quickly to all our questions and concerns. By far the best realtor we have worked with so far! Our experience with him was such a breeze that we were able to purchase our property very quickly! He is available anytime we call him for all our questions and was there from start to finish. He is super reliable, very friendly and goes above and beyond what we expect from a realtor. He has exceeded our expectations! 100% highly recommended!
Anna K. Justin is awesome! Knows how to do his job incredibly well! He maintains a professional relationship with his client and is always able to answer questions. I’d use Justin as an agent every time if I could
Chris B. Justin’s honesty and hard work I can truly say got us our house. When there were obstacles in the way, he found creative solutions and kept us in the know. He always responded to texts and phone calls and would give us lots of heads up if he’d be out of reach for a few hours. We can’t thank him enough for guiding us through this process and would recommend him to anyone looking to move.
Purchasing a home is one of the most important decisions you’ll make, and the right advice and guidance is paramount. Experience and expertise matter and they can make a significant difference in making sure that you not only find the right house, but that you also pay the best price.
I not only have a thorough understanding of the marketplace but I also have access to many properties that are off-market
and an awareness of properties that are about to be listed. Most importantly, I’m keenly aware of the nuances that determine value and I am discerning as to construction quality, materials, and craftsmanship. I will listen to your needs and find you the perfect home and I will make sure that you make an educated and informed decision. Once you choose a property I will represent your interest vociferously throughout the purchase process, negotiating the best possible purchase price, managing and advocating for you during inspections, escrow, title, and closing. I will also advise you on how to make the house even better, including furniture and design, and possibly remodel ideas and augmentations where beneficial.
Choosing the correct real estate agent to sell your home is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. It can be the difference between your home sitting on the market for months or selling quickly, for hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars more. Your home is a very personal, important, and valuable asset, and it can be an emotional and complicated endeavor to sell it, especially in today’s challenging marketplace.
Numerous questions and concerns will need to be addressed, and the advice and consultation that you receive can make a tremendous difference in the results. Marketing and advertising, remodeling and/or upgrading, photography, internet exposure, staging, design, floor-plan measurements, videography, timing and presentation, inspections, pre-market exposure, agent outreach and relationships, open houses, pricing, and dozens more nuances and subtleties all make up the difference between failure and a successful sale.
