Meet the Team
Having relocated to the Okanagan in 1990, Gerry has since been proud to call the Okanagan his home. Gerry found his niche in the award-winning Gallagher’s Canyon development when the community was first established, and has had flourishing success ever since.
Gerry’s persistence in the Gallagher’s Canyon development earned him recognition by the Canadian Homebuilders Association as the “Best Salesperson in New Home Construction”, both regionally and provincially. Proof of this effective persistence; Gerry still currently holds the majority of the Gallagher’s Canyon market, while extending his reach throughout the entire Central Okanagan.
With over 20 years in the profession, Gerry has been a “Top Producer” and award winning Realtor every year since he entered the field. The Fraser Patridge Group continues to specialize in high-end niches such as lifestyle and recreational properties for buyers and sellers alike.
Partnered with the experienced George Patridge, Gerry has his thoughts set higher than ever before and is as ambitious as ever to get out and promote the Okanagan. Its opportunities, lifestyle, and magnificent beauty.
A former Manitoba resident, George relocated to the Okanagan in 1980. Years have passed, yet George’s opinion on the Okanagan has not faltered, as he remains convinced that he lives nowhere short of paradise. George, like many others, fell in love with the Okanagan and found the perfect place for him and his family to be.
George’s own experiences drive his keen attitude towards Okanagan real estate. He is determined to show every client how much there is to love about the Okanagan, and to find housing options that can make anybody take part in this paradise. His ambition, passion, and strong communication skills, allow for George to fully satisfy his clients, whether they are buying property, or selling it.
Realizing that real estate is a serious business, George has no holds barred when it comes to negotiations, however his demeanor is really what sets him apart from the competition. With a soft and relaxed attitude, George makes sure his clients are always comfortable, no matter what situation may arise. It is this approach that has earned George many consecutive Top Sales Performer and/or President Club Honors yearly.
To give back to the community he has come to love so much, George has made numerous contributions for his community in ways such as serving as the President of the Kelowna Minor Football Association for over 10 years, an organizer for the Leukemia Research Foundation Committee, a member of the Sport Kelowna Fields Advisory Committee, and is a current member of the Okanagan Real Estate Board Professional Standards Committee.
