From the moment we met Natalie & Nathan we knew we were in good hands. Their professionalism and methodical approach was most appreciated throughout the process. Listing your home is stressful, but the reports that they shared with us in terms of coming up with a sensible list price for our home as well as the marketing initiatives, put us at ease immediately. Sotheby’s has an impressive reach and the talented team they used to market our home was incredible. The pictures, video and attention to detail were amazing, We also appreciated the weekly updates/stats on the activity of our listing. We are very grateful for the care we received and look forward to making the move to our new home. Thank you Natalie & Nathan!

When it was time to take our next property step there was no question who we would reach out to; Nathan was the obvious choice. His demeanor, market knowledge and professionalism are impressive.Important to us was an individual who supported the diversity of Kelowna, was an active part of our community and supported the arts. Nathans connections to the LGBTQ community, "The Kelowna Actors studio" and an his advocacy of individual rights only bolstered our decision.He made both the sale of my investment property and the purchase of our family home easy, seamless and stress free.If your looking for a realtor who is connected to the market and our community, who will take the time to understand your values and your needs than look no further than Nathan Flavel.
Nate went above and beyond in assisting with our purchase. As an example, we had a tour scheduled to view a property approximately 30km outside of Kelowna. The night before and morning of our scheduled tour it snowed heavily, making the drive somewhat tricky. Instead of rescheduling, Nate went to the effort of borrowing a 4x4 truck from a family member to be able to navigate the snow covered roads so that we could view the property as scheduled. Nate is a true professional!
Nate is an amazing Realtor he was able to locate the perfect property and his knowledge, professionalism and expertise made the home buying process easy and comfortable. I would use Nate again and would recommend his Real Estate Services.
We wanted the property so badly we were prepared to offer full price but thanks to Nate's experience, he saved us $$. He was great to work with, knows his stuff and knows how to negotiate well.
By far the best experience I have had with a realtor to date. He made sure we were priced competitively, made sure that we countered properly when our first instinct was to just say "ok". He ensured we got top dollar for our property and still managed to close our sale within weeks of listing it. Dealt directly, politely and respectfully with our tenants, and went above and beyond to ensure their pet was always safe during a showing. And when we had issues with our mortgage payout he made sure that we were dealt with fairly and properly by our bank. If he didn't know the answer regarding the mortgage payout, he always had a respected industry leader to consult with. There is no end to the praise I could heap on him and I will absolutely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a realtor who wants to be treated like a human rather then just a number.
Nate Flavel is a very capable real estate agent and a well rounded all around interesting person to boot. He was always on time (actually waited for us every appointment) and well prepared for our days out to view multiple locations. He was open to our observations, but was also quick to input his own queries. He looked at each individual place as if he were the purchaser and would quickly research, hunt down or investigate all questions brought up so that we would have answers later that day. Easy to contact at all hours of the day and even sat down to break bread with us like a long lost friend. Nate was very easy to communicate with and made both my wife and I feel at ease with every step we took through what could have been an otherwise stressful time in our lives. Having lived in Kelowna for years, Nate was also able to add local information regarding future developments around Kelowna and never once put his own itinerary ahead of our needs. Introduced to us by my sister and brother-in-law after they successfully purchased their house with Nate's help, he lived up to the hype and found us the perfect place while reducing the asking price by roughly 10%. Will go to Nate in the future with ease.
Nate was a great help to us as we navigated the purchase of our first home in our new city! We were so delighted with where we ended up, and so happy with our entire experience.
Nate was great to work with - our house sold quickly and it all went well - Nate has a great sense of humour , is professional and worked hard for us. Working with Nate was a good experience and I highly recommend him to anyone.
We were helping our daughter buy a home for university and after. Nate was able to strike the perfect balance of listening to us as well as really listening to our daughter. She felt that most agents would have ignored her and focused on the parents. We only had a short time in Kelowna to view properties and all viewings were organized very well with extra viewings arranged at short notice. We did not feel any pressure at all when viewing homes and we had ample time at each property to fully check them out. Nate provided us with any information we requested quickly and dealt with negotiations very efficiently and confidently. He gave us sound advice following acceptance of our offer, being out of province he had a list of professionals to help us all of whom were great. This information was presented to us within minutes of asking in a really helpful format. Nate met us at the property to take possession of the home with a lovely welcome gift. This was a very pleasant experience from start to finish. We are happy that our daughter's home is in a safe and beautiful area and that we paid a fair price for it. Although Nate was dealing with other clients during our visit, he focused on us completely giving us his full attention during our time spent with him. His follow up communications were exceptional. We would not hesitate to recommend Nate, he gets the job done in a really friendly and easy manner. No stress - no pressure
Nate was phenomenal - dedicated and responsive with the demanding client that I was. He was tireless in his efforts, bold in his negotiating approach while appreciating our needs and pressures. Nate is genuine, sincere and professional in every way, demonstrated throughout an extended extra-provincial move under restricted timelines. Nate has my trust and confidence.
Nate Flavel was friendly and professional. He listened to what I wanted and needed and helped me find a great condo. He responded to my e-mails and calls in a timely manner, even while away at a conference. He seems to enjoy being an agent and it's clear he loves the Kelowna area and is knowledgeable about it.
We were looking for a condo that would work as a student rental and a summer vacation property. Nate was organized, informed, helpful, and tireless in preparing, viewing and deciding on the perfect property. He advised us through the process and worked on our behalf when we could not be in Kelowna. He was on top of all the details and attentive to our needs, requests and concerns as we moved through the transaction. We would highly recommend him to others seeking to buy in the Kelowna area.
We were new to the area, we grew up nearby but have not been involved locally for 15 years. Nate was able to give us local insight on trends and pitfalls that may come about. He is very good at seeing through the smoke and mirrors and dealing with the property, listing and the deal itself. Nate has a great personality and makes the search for real estate an enjoyable experience and not a tedious endeavour. We would highly recommend him as a realtor to anyone buying or selling. Thanks Nate.
We moved from Saskatoon to Kelowna and Nate Flavel was tremendous right from the start. From organizing our visits to each house, the information he gave about each house and neighborhood was very helpful. Nate was always available at any time for questions we had. Looking for a new home can be stressful, but should be fun as well and Nate made it just that!
Nate was such a pleasure to work with. We moved from across the country and Nate was fully prepared to help us find our dream house in less than a week. He really listened to us when we gave our list of wants in a home and showed us a great selection to pick from. Nate really knew the city well and helped us narrow our choices to find the neighbourhood that was best for our family. We appreciate everything he did for us and would fully recommend him to our friends and family.
