While “snowbirding” in sunny Florida this winter the opportunity for us to downsize arose and we suddenly had to sell our townhouse at Gallaghers Canyon mid-winter and from long distance! No problem – just call Gerry Fraser! Long story short, we accepted an offer at 99% of our asking price 6 days after we first spoke with him, and the subjects were removed and the offer firm within 19 days after the process was started.Alastair & Fay Walker
Gerry, Thank you once again for being my number one supportee in the Gallaghers Residents Pinnacle Golf Tournament to help raise funds for The MS Society of Canada. Your generous donations are very much appreciated.Henri Fontaine
George, just a note to say how stress-free and seamless it has been to have you work on my behalf during my Okanagan real estate transactions. I have benefited immensely from your integrity, your thoroughness and resourcefulness — you have a natural ability of understanding the nuances of a client’s unique real estate needs and in particular, how my investment and property goals differ from some other buyers. You also fine-tuned the list of viewings to only those that met my specific criteria, thereby saving me a lot of time and frustration. And to top it off, you never over-sold a property! Indeed, you helped weigh the pros and cons in a way that ensured I made choices based on a thoughtful and considered analysis of all the properties we viewed. And to top it off, you answered my many calls and addressed my concerns promptly. Buying and/or selling real estate can be a scary move to the novice property buyer/investor; you were able to calm my jittery nerves and put my worried mind at ease time and time again.
I thank you for your patience, your professionalism and your honesty.
I look forward to doing business with you again,Josephine Thompson
We can highly recommend Gerry Fraser to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He did both for us.
Gerry found us an unbelievable deal in Gallaghers Canyon and we are so happy to be in our dream house. He helped us make an offer that was supported by Gerry’s knowledge of the market. He prepared a written proposal to the sellers that pointed out how reasonable our offer was given the current conditions in the marketplace at the time. His logic won the sale for us.
After we took possession, Gerry was available anytime we needed help with local contractors or trades people.
And of course he sold our house in Gallaghers in a very difficult and quiet market. He produced a sales video of our property for the internet and advertised our home on his attractive website. He was always available for showings and his efforts paid off in a timely sale for us.
Gerry is a wonderful person to represent anyone about to buy or sell a home and his personality is very comforting and charming. Gerry was able to help us through any cloudy issues with his knowledge and experience.
We are very happy we found Gerry Fraser.Bryan and Arlene
We were newcomers to Kelowna and we found George Patridge to be the ideal person for us. He has the patience of “Job” and he certainly needed it with us. He showed us houses time and time again happily imparting knowledge as he went. We visited Kelowna four or five times and each time he was there for us showing and reshowing properties before we finally made our move. One time we flew in for five hours and he picked us up at the airport, took us around to see houses and then dropped us back in time for our ongoing flight.
Quite apart from his general knowledge of properties throughout Kelowna, his honesty and integrity proved to be above reproach. When we finally settled on Gallaghers Canyon, we found his experience of properties here and the subtle differences in the models, Strata’s etc. to be excellent and it made a big difference for us when we made our final decision.
In short, we can’t recommend him highly enough.Joe & Patricia
Thank you for everything you have done for us. As I look back at both my personal and professional life, I am hard pressed to find many people as solid as you, George. You have been so down to earth and so honest with us in all of your dealings and have gone over and above our expectations in any request we have made of you. You have been our agent and might I say friend for the past few years and this last sale was by far the most difficult. You were professional, patient and encouraging throughout the entire sales process. I feel that not often enough in my personal or professional life, people like you are properly recognized. With that said, “Great Job!”. Not if, but when we return to the valley, I will be getting in touch with you to continue our relationship. Keep in touch.Rob & Shelley
A huge Thank You goes out to George Patridge and the gang at The Fraser Patridge Group Realty for finding us our dream home! Being from out of town and house shopping is not the easiest thing to do. George gave us his undivided attention while we were up in Kelowna shopping for homes. He was extremely accommodating and assuring, and took the time to get to know us and what we were really looking for in a new home. Not to mention fun to be around! Completion of the sale was efficient and stress free – Thanks to George! If you’re looking to buy in Kelowna – call George!Lisa & Charles
I found George to be a personable and professional Realtor. He ensured qualified buyers came through our home and quickly gave us the feed back from these showings. The Fraser Patridge Group had great advertising methods and these generated positive, quick responses. The photographs especially portrayed our home in a very favourable and accurate way. They looked after all the paperwork for us thus alleviating stress in selling our home.Rhonda & Alan

We would like to take this opportunity to thank George for his efforts in our purchasing a home in Kelowna. From our first meeting George displayed a very professional attitude and an in-depth knowledge of Kelowna’s current market trends. He was extremely attentive in listening to our wants and needs for what we were seeking in a home. From this George was able to target in on specific homes in the style of neighbourhood that we envisioned living in which cut out a tremendous amount time in our finding that perfect home.
George always made himself available to answer any questions that we had as a result the showings that had taken place and during the negotiations with the perspective sellers, George’s expertise and knowledge was invaluable in successfully closing the deal.
We cannot stress enough that George’s outstanding effort on our behalf, was the single most important reason that we were able to complete our home purchase with the quick closing date that we required.
We highly recommend George and his team of professionals to anyone who is contemplating selling or buying a home in Kelowna.Frank and Lynda
