Great communication. Knows the market and value. (We previously had agent telling us our place would sell for a lot more, but no one even came by.) Everything Paul said made sense about the market, the value of our place, and what we could do to attract more attention to it. He worked hard to get our place sold.
– The Walks Family
We were very pleased to work with Paul who is very professional, knowledgeable straightforward and timely reporting back to us.
– Greg McAree
Paul is one of the most genuine, honest, professional realtors you’ll meet. We’ve had multiple business dralings together, and we’ve been more than satisfied with his services. Highly recommended.
– Sean Hogan
Paul worked on the purchase of our new Kelowna condo as if it were a million dollar deal! Couldn’t have done it without you, Paul. We will be buying more through you in the future!
– Sandra Gibbs
We started working with Paul from a distance. Our process was not an easy one but he stuck by us and gave us 100% of his time and never made us feel like an inconvenience . He consistently kept in contact with us, sent us videos and even did a couple showings through FaceTime. Most of all, we appreciated his patience and dedication. Without hesitation, we would work with Paul again and we highly recommend him. Paul became more than just a realtor 🙂
– Sasha and Jules MacMillan
I would definitely recommend using Paul as your realtor! He listened to what both of us were looking for in our new home and helped us find a house that suited both of our wants and needs. He provided great advice throughout the whole process and ensured that the negotiation process went smoothly. When we needed a contractor to take a look at an issue that arose during the home inspection Paul was able to refer us to somebody and get them out to the property the next day. We are so pleased we decided to use Paul to assist us in purchasing our home!
– Hannah Bristow
Professional, courteous and timely service. I would recommend Paul to others looking for a solid agent to handle their real estate needs.
– Jordan Porrelli
Paul has a brilliant personality! Paul’s sense of humor, wisdom, and hard working personality made the process of finding the perfect purchase in the beautiful Okanagan a smooth sailing. He consistently kept in contact with us, and with his ability to be detailed oriented, he guided us through every step with ease. Most of all, we appreciate his patience and dedication through this journey. Without hesitation, we would love to work with Paul again. Paul became more then a realtor; he made us feel like family.
– The Moyer Family
Paul has been so good with us. He has jumped in to help wherever he could. He is willing to go the extra mile to make the process as smooth as possible. He has been terrific.
– Cindy Krause
Paul worked with us for almost a year from a distance, helping us understand the Kelowna market, and refine what we were looking for – all while we were overseas. When we got to Kelowna we had just 3 days and Paul hit the ground running with us. He gave us 100% of his time and attention and we couldn’t be happier with the end result. Thanks Paul! We highly recommend!

We recently had the pleasure of being represented by realtor, Paul Hawley in the sale of our Kelowna condo.
We found him to be hard-working, prompt and approachable. Although we do not live in the Kelowna area, Paul made it easy to deal with the listing and sale without several long drives to the city. We were impressed with the wide number of resources used to advertise our property. Paul has a good background in dealing with lease land, which was very beneficial in our sale. His friendliness and down-to-earth approach make him easy to work with. We would highly recommend Paul Hawley to those in need of a real estate agent.
– Kerry and Marg Hamblin
Paul was very knowledgeable about the Market and specifically our neighborhood. Paul walked us through the process very methodically and made our Home Sale a confident and stress less experience. Paul kept us well informed and we enjoyed the Professional and personal relationship. We would highly recommend Paul to anyone interested in selling their home.
– Richard & Susan Girvan
We were so amazed at the personal and professional services by Paul on our house search moving from Revelstoke to the Okanagan. He takes the time daily to update and connect with you, asks for feedback on all listings he sends to you to clarify what you like and to really get to know you and assist with your search. We feel he went above and beyond working with us from emails, to phone calls etc in all aspects. He was amazing showing us properties and followed through to help us with everything to lining up inspections etc and made sure he was there as we do not live there. Please believe me, this is your guy!
Thx Paul ever so much,
– Kevin & Karen
I’m so happy with my Realtor® Paul. He has been absolutely wonderful. I would advise anybody to get a hold of him if you’re trying to sell your house
– Margaret Fisher
Paul is wonderful all around – person and realtor! He really got to know us, what we were looking for and was able to answer all of our questions. He is one of the most genuine and sincere people we have ever met. He made what could be a very stressful experience go smoothly. We would recommend him to anyone needing a realtor. Thanks for everything Paul!
– Renee & Maria
Paul works well with seniors, he is informative and punctual and a pleasure to work with. If Paul did not have the answers to our questions he made the enquires to find the answers we needed. Thank you Paul for all your hard work
– John and Kathy Oakley
George and Gerry were great to work with and helpful in understanding the sale process and consummating the sale deal of our home. Thanks George for the en-site in the papers signed and the care in solving any issues we encountered.
– The Myhrs
Thanks for the update and all the valuable info. Just wanted to say that I have been helping a fellow resident “stickhandle” her way through her move and all her current decisions and must compliment you on the way you have assisted her also. She totally respects and trusts your advice. She really needs the assurance you have provided and the latitude you have given her regarding listing/sale of her home. So professional and very sensitive to her needs. You are one great “atypical” realtor.
– C.L. Jan. 2019
With knowledgeable and professional guidance, The Fraser Patridge Group, was able to help us arrive at an aggressive, yet competitive, listing price for our townhome. She was proactive in posting our listing on Castanet days before it became active on MLS; this created lots of interest, and, as a result, we had over six requests for showings the first day it was formally active. We also had two solid offers within the week! We will certainly be sharing our positive experience in dealing with them with friends and colleagues.
– G & J Taylor – March 2018
We want to take the opportunity to thank Jo for all her help over the past few months with the administrative assistance she has provided for the sale of our home and the purchase of our new condo. She is an absolute delight to deal with and was always available to help us with any of our numerous questions.
– John and Carolyn Scott – Kelowna, B.C.
This is the second time we have used the Fraser Patridge Group with ReMax Kelowna. We were so happy with their professionalism and service when we originally purchased our home in Kelowna that we decided to use them again exclusively to sell our house and to purchase our new condo. They did not disappoint us; we were extremely pleased with their personal service, and they were always available to answer questions and to provide us with their knowledge. We highly recommend the Fraser Patridge Group with ReMax Kelowna for all of your Kelowna real estate needs. Gerry and George, as well as their amazing assistant Jo, will take excellent care of you.
– John and Carolyn Scott – Kelowna, B.C.
The Fraser Patridge Group helped us find the perfect home for our family. They were patient, professional and wonderful to work with. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a property in Kelowna

Upon being transferred from the Province of Alberta to British Columbia, George was recommended to my wife and I as a hard working and honest realtor. From our first phone call to George we were immediately impressed with his personality, friendliness, and professionalism. George was very attentive to our new home wants and needs and was quick to provide advice, guidance and an expert opinion. Having never been to Kelowna before, my wife, daughter and I flew into the city for a few days to tour the area and personally meet George. Arriving on a Sunday, George personally cleared his schedule for us even though our home in Alberta had yet to sell and drove us around the city for over 5 hours educating us on all of our areas of interest. George further made arrangements for us to even look at a few homes during this time frame as well. Having received this time and knowledge from George was invaluable.
While waiting for home to sell in Alberta George kept in regular personal contact with us and continually sent us all of the new Kelowna listings in order to keep us in the loop with the current market and homes available. Six months to the day our home in Alberta was listed it finally sold. In short notice we contacted George and made arrangements for a 7 day house hunting trip. George once again immediately made himself available and made showing appointments for us to see the homes that we were interested in. During our house hunting trip George was patient yet not afraid to state his opinion if he felt that a home that we were interested in may have some potential resale issues. George was also instrumental in listening to our specific needs and wants which ultimately led to us finding our ultimate dream home.
Our home purchase in Kelowna was our sixth home in 20 years and third Province in 3 years. We can honestly say that George was by far the best realtor whom we have had an opportunity to work with and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Kelowna. Not only was George our realtor but he has now become our friend. We cannot express how thankful we are to have had the opportunity to meet and work with George. He is an amazing and honest individual who will work over and beyond your personal needs to ensure that your best interests are kept in mind and met.
Thank you George for being you and finding us our current home.
– Brent, Aundrea and Emerson Novakoski – Dec. 2017
George Patridge did a great job in helping us find a new home in Kelowna. He is very knowledgable about the area and spent time to understand the features and location that we wanted for our new home. George always got back to us quickly with any questions and was very patient with ‘new buyers’ from out-of-province. George also maintains contact with us ‘after the sale’ and we now consider him a friend.Anita & Tim
|It wasn’t my first home, but George Patridge made it easy!!|
We used Gerry Fraser on both the sale of our townhome and purchase of a bungalow at Gallagher’s. To say we were happy with his service is an understatement as the way he looked after our needs was first class. Both the sale and subsequent purchase were signed in less that a week and he was always available to answer any questions on the transactions. A pleasure to deal with and we would not think of using or recommending anyone else.
– Chuck & Lorna
Excellent service from George Patridge of Fraser Patridge Group.
– Charlotte Foster 2017
Very professional, polite, and honest realtors that work for the clients best interests.
– Mark R. Lawrence. 2017
Gerry and George were wonderful! When selling our home, they were extremely helpful in pricing our home to sell and in having the house videoed, beautifully, to show our home to prospective buyers. We had many people view our home and it sold quickly. Their advice all along the way was most helpful. Jo was also very helpful whenever I had a question–and also friendly and upbeat. When we had an unexpectedemergency and had to buy a home in a hurry, they were also right there for us with moral support and a quick response. We would highly recommend this team to anyone wanting to sell or purchase a home.
– Sharon O’Byrne/Wilf Foss 2017
Amazing Service And Great People with this Group! I worked with George Patridge and his team listing and selling my home in Kelowna upper Mission in my transfer leaving Kelowna. With the number of times I have purchased and sold homes in several different communities, this was by far the smoothest realtor experience I have had, which made everything very simple and stress free. The communication was excellent for the showings and feedback from the viewers as well as when the purchase offer and agreement came through very shortly after I listed. When I purchased in the community I moved to…. Not even comparable…. We’ll see you again guys on my move back to the Okanagan
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.

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
We are writing to express our appreciation for the assistance provided by George Patridge.
In recent years we have completed five Real Estate transactions through George and have appreciated his professionalism, knowledge, and support in selecting appropriate properties for our requirements. We particularly appreciated the assistance he provided in the sale of our house which, in spite of some difficult circumstances, was completed in two weeks.
We have no hesitation recommending George to our friends and associates. – Jim & Louise
Paul was so great in fact that the pressure to find a house in a limited time frame was not that difficult. Paul devoted so much of his own time in order for us to find the perfect home, and his efforts can’t be understated. Furthermore, he is simply a good person and was joy to be around during our hunt for a home. I recommend Paul to anyone seeking a realtor.
– Devon Gammie
WOW!!! A real estate agent who goes above & beyond. Paul made it his personal objective to make sure that we would make the absolute best deal. His local knowledge, willingness to guide us through the documents necessary and ability to lead us through the negotiations were outstanding. We couldn’t have expected anything more. We have dealt with a number of real estate agents in the past, some good, some terrible and Paul has set the bar for what a real estate agent should be. He was fair in not only dealing with us but considerate of what the other party may agree to. He is a consummate professional in his dealings. We warned him that we would be particularly fussy and his patience outlasted us. We were buying into a strata and not only did we read over the documents, but Paul did too. If you have ever read a depreciation report you will understand how important this was that he not only read it but could explain the significance to us. He had endless patience with us and helped us with each question, etc. Not only that, but also he knows so many people from a hairdresser to a handyman. In addition he pointed out various points of interest in our targeted area. He took the time to explain any questions and helped us with various concerns that we might have had. Thank you Paul, for a job well done. So very professional and at the same time friendly.
– Mark Petterson
Very kind,thoughtful,honest and always the constant professional realtor.One of the nicest person we have ever meet.We would recommend Paul to anyone and have.Paul was in constant touch with us,every second or third day.

Excellent realtor. Sold my house in three and half weeks in a buyer’s market. Very responsive to client’s needs. Additional good qualities are hardworking, integrity and result-oriented.
– Thomas Edison
We just undertook a cross country move, with Paul as our agent; from the initial matrix set up, to interim phone calls and emails, to video follow up, and face to face meetings, Paul was extremely professional and thorough! If you’re looking for someone to truly care for you and your major decision in purchasing a home, you can assure exactly that from Paul! We have already connected our parents with Paul as they begin planning their cross country moves. Thank you so much for an incredible experience, Paul! We are beyond thrilled with your exceptional service and care!
– Alida Steele
Having bought & sold 8 properties in my life Paul was the the most professional I ever dealt with He really helped a Senior with many aspects of the ease of selling my house & made the situation very easy with advice etc Unfortunately will be my last purchase of property & only wished I would of used him in other transactions in the past He takes great interest in your home & will surely be a top producer in his career It was pleasure to do business with him.
– Brian Metcalfe
Paul exuded professionalism from our first meeting when he came prepared with a discussion of his professional approach to selling and a business plan for our home which included staging, Videography including drone photos, professional staging and professional still photography. He went the extra mile in all matters concerning the presentation and sale of the house. We were extremely impressed with the way he advertised the property and made us feel it was a top priority. Paul raised-the-bar for others with his outstanding professionalism. His professional commitment came out again shortly thereafter with the sale of our investment property. We highly recommend Paul and cannot thank him enough for the dedication he gave us during the sale of our home and our investment property.
– Kerry Bennington
We had the pleasure of using the service of Paul Hawley for both selling our home and purchasing our dream. I am a very judgemental person and challenged Paul in the beginning, which he past all of my expectations. Paul is very honest and truly believes in servicing his customers needs. Paul took the time to explain everything to us during the selling process as well as the buying. Paul shares very similar values as we do and the fit was right for all of us. Paul has become a friend and if we were ever to re-locate, he would be our first call. Thanks Paul for all your help.
– Elizabeth Sheyev
I highly recommend Paul Hawley as a Realtor. Paul is unlike any other Realtor I have worked with. He listened with genuine interest in what my family’s needs were and worked with us to find a home that met our requirements. His patience, understanding and involvement, go above and beyond what is expected. Thank you Paul for all your help.
