"...extremely knowledgeable, offered honest and trustworthy advice, and showed genuine care and interest in our needs..."
"We just purchased our first ever home in this crazy highly competitive market here in the Okanagan! We feel so fortunate to have worked with and been guided through the entire (crazy) process with Brendan! Always making himself available to answer any of our questions or concerns right away whether it was a phone call, e-mail or text message.. even on a Sunday! We were never left wondering or waiting. In todays market, you have to be on your toes and quick- He is just that! Accommodating our schedules to ensure we could see what was out there- extremely knowledgeable, offered honest and trustworthy advice, and showed genuine care and interest in our search/needs. He was so gracious and patient, really encouraged us not to give up and that something would surface that would be just right for us!
This being our first home, the process can be very overwhelming and stressful, however Brendan was able to ease our minds by leading us step by step through the process and explaining things in terms we could understand with such professionalism, respect and enthusiasm. He even helped us with other resources and provided us with a list of trustworthy professional references for things like home inspection, lawyers or someone to speak with about financing if we needed it! Brendan knows the market, is an excellent negotiator for your side and has a good idea of any obstacles which may lay ahead. He is focused, driven and so approachable. Whether you are buying or selling a home we highly recommend Brendan Stoneman!"
"I can highly recommend Brendan Stoneman as an honest and highly experienced professional."
"I can highly recommend Brendan Stoneman as an honest and highly experienced professional. Since 2013 he has assisted us with one house sale and two purchases. Never rushing or pressuring us in any way, the outcomes were always well above my expectations. He did an awesome job of getting our home listed and sold above asking price, and was diplomatic and tireless in his efforts to find us homes which met our complex and varied requirements, never losing his sense of humour. I am grateful to him for his knowledgeable and caring assistance under sometimes trying circumstances."
"He went above and beyond for us..."
"Brendan was great, I will definitely recommend him to anyone searching for an agent in the Okanagan! He went above and beyond for us to get the subjects removed at the 11th hour, and we truly appreciate all he has done for us."
"He is professional and extrememly knowledgeable."
"Brendan has been our realtor for the past two homes. He is professional and extremely knowledgeable. He helped us prepare our home for a very quick sale which led to an offer in just 10 days on the market. He answered our numerous questions promptly and kept us in the loop at all times. We love that Brendan goes above and beyond in marketing the house and even making an online video/open house. I would highly recommend Brendan to anyone looking for a fantastic realtor!"
"I put my trust in him and I was not disappointed!"
"I've used Brendan twice now, once selling a condo and 2 yrs later just bought into another condo. Unfortunately I was two provinces away when he emailed me info on a condo that was for sale with all what I was looking for. I put my trust in him and I was not disappointed! He had all my specifications of what I was looking for and location. I absolutely love my new condo and the location is perfect. Two provinces away and he still kept in close contact. I totally recommend Brendan Stoneman!"
"We couldn't be happier!"
"Brendan is a very astute real estate professional and helped us to find, negotiate & purchase our dream house for our move from Vancouver to Kelowna. We couldn't be happier!...He showed us a lot of different and interesting properties in our price range, and then stayed in touch throughout the many months until we finally closed and moved in. My family would highly recommend Brendan."
"The listing was phenomenal..."
"Brendan was recommended to me by some friends that had nothing but good things to say about him. Being from out of town, I only had limited time to come to Kelowna and fix up my rental unit before listing it. Brendan came in and gave me great advice on where I should focus my limited time and money on quick renos before listing to get the best possible returns.
The listing was phenomenal and attracted a lot of people on the very first day. The house went into a 3 person bidding war on the very first day and sold way over asking price. All of this happened while I was out of town, and so he had to be very involved and attentive. Thank you so much Brendan, If anyone ever asks, I will be highly recommending you as well."
"You won't end up disappointed whether you're buying or selling."
"Brendan is an amazing realtor. He provided so much knowledge on the market, neighbourhoods, and the homes. He truly got to know what I was looking for in a home and provided an unbiased prospective when I was uncertain about a particular home. Brendan went above and beyond with his availability. Throughout the process of both selling a condo and buying in this crazy market, I knew Brendan always had my back and really did care. Brendan knows his stuff and I would highly recommend anyone looking for a realtor to choose him. Even my father remarked that Brendan is a really good realtor! You won't end up disappointed whether your buying or selling. Thanks for everything, Brendan!!!!"
"We would highly recommend Brendan to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
"We would highly recommend Brendan to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Nothing about our journey was easy - through no fault of Brendan's - but he patiently got us through and we are now happily in our new home. He will get the job done and follow through but never with any pressure. We don't plan on selling anytime soon but, if we did, we would definitely have Brendan handle it for us."
"...we highly recommend him as the go to guy..."
"Brendan really listened to identify our needs and then went to work to find the house that met our requirements. He did it with professionalism and generosity of spirit. We highly recommend him as the go to guy in the Kelowna-Lake country area."
"We found Brendan from previous reviews on line. He was very professional in his dealings with us. He knew the market well and was very realistic in pricing our property. Unfortunately due circumstances beyond anyone’s control it did take longer to sell than expected, what with forest fires, smoke and change in government. Brendon’s assistant Miranda was also very helpful in arranging showings of which there were many. The pictures and video of our property were excellent. Thanks Brendan!."
"I would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody."
"Brendan did a terrific job helping us find the right property to purchase. Our schedule is not very flexible, but he took the time to arrange showings and did the legwork so that he knew all about the property and the neighborhood beforehand. In addition to his knowledge of Kelowna and the Kelowna market, he is a truly nice guy and listens to your needs. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody."
"I would not buy a home in Kelowna without speaking to Brendan."
"From the very first moment my family met Brendan it was like I was put at ease instantly. Very kind man. I could be friends with Mr. Stoneman. Yes he's an agent, yes they are supposed to be real estate professionals.. in Brendan's case he was MORE. He made of making a point of knowing my family. He spoke to my wife and 3 children like they were all part of our new home purchase. Even while on vacation with his family in another country he was on top of our search. Our extended family is moving to the Okanagan and Brendan will surely look after their real estate needs.
I would not buy a home in Kelowna without speaking to Brendan.
In 55 years I've never gone out of my way to make comments....
Brendan you ROCK!!!
Thanks for helping us find our perfect home, thx for driving to 40 homes to find the right one. Thx for making this very stressful part of life a little less stressful

We will be using Brendan again if the need arises and we would recommend him to our friends and acquantances. Thank you Brendan."
"This past spring I made the decision to move to Kelowna from Metro Vancouver. Brendan had been referred to me by another real estate agent and I immediately felt a sense of comfort when we began communicating long distance. Brendan is extremely knowledgeable about the Kelowna market and was able to determine which properties would be ‘the right fit’ for me. When we were able to meet face to face I was reassured by Brendan’s professional and respectful approach toward me as well as the owners of the many homes we viewed. He was a pleasure to work with and readily assisted me throughout the process of purchasing my new home. I am very excited about my move to Kelowna and hope to stay put for some time, but if I do move again I will ask Brendan to represent me, and I would definitely recommend the real estate services of Brendan Stoneman to friends and colleagues."
"He exceeded all of our expectations."
"Brendan was amazing - he exceeded all of our real estate expectations and found the perfect house for us! Would highly recommend him and would definitely choose him again ourselves!"
"I would not hesitate to call Brendan first because that would be the only call I would need to get things done."
"I really enjoyed having Brenan sell my home in Kelowna. He was very easy to work with and when the time came to make any changes he was the first to notice the changes that would make the sale quicker and always presented it so I could decide the next move. He was very helpful in showing me why we were to list the home at good market value and he got me a price that I am very happy with. If I had to do it all again I would not hesitate to call Brendan first because that would be the only call I would need to get things done. Thanks Brendan, good job."
"We would highly recommend Brendan...when the time comes to search for our next forever home, there is no doubt we will be calling Brendan."
"Brendan Stoneman provided us with an exciting and fun experience with both the selling of our home and the buying of our new home. Brendan was able to turn a typically stressful situation in ones life into an adventure with ease. Brendan worked around our young children's schedules when it came time to book showings, which further eleviated stress from the selling and buying process. Brendan was able to answer all our questions with certainty and with confidence. We would highly recommend Brendan for all your real estate needs and when the time comes to search for our next forever home, there is no doubt we will be calling Brendan!"
"I would recommend Brendan to anyone, especially those looking to purchase their first home."
"When I purchased my first home about 4 years ago, I had no idea where to start. Luckily, I had the opportunity to get to know Brendan, who helped to answer the many questions that I had, and to make the house buying experience go as smoothly as possible. Brendan made sure that he was always available, and never showed any frustration at my (probably dumb) questions. He never rushed me, and was willing to look at many places with me to make sure I found what I was looking for. Not only was I able to find a great home, but I was able to do it on my time while knowing that all of the small details were being taken care of. I do not have any other experience to compare this to, and I probably never will, because I will definitely be using Brendan's services in the future. I would recommend Brendan to anyone, especially those looking to purchase their first home."
"The experience was nothing but positive from start to finish."
"We just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you very much for making our purchase of our new to us town house in Glenmore a great experience!

Although now retired I have been on commission only sales for well over 30 years and both recognize and appreciate your honesty, professionalism, knowledge, hard work and empathy. I was not sure what to expect but you made the process seem smooth and easy from our side of the table...I would be happy to recommend you to other potential clients and you're welcome to share this note with them."
"It is Brendan's caring and personal touches that make him such an exemplary real estate agent and person!"
"Brendan was the most amazing person we could have found to help us with buying our first home. It was a little bit difficult working within our specific price range but Brendan had patience and kept us updated on properties as soon as they popped up. He even offered to help with the little things that he did not need to such as talking to the mortgage broker and dropping off paperwork where we needed. When everything was extra stressful around closing day Brendan made sure to keep himself available to us whenever we needed him so that we could call or text with any concerns and he made sure to re-assure us every step of the way. Brendan was very well informed with things such as tax exemptions and home owners grants which really helped us feel confident that he knew what he was talking about and had our best interests in mind. We will use Brendan when we eventually move up to a bigger home and I will recommend him to everyone I know. It is Brendan's caring and personal touches that make him such an exemplary real estate agent and person!"
"I would highly recommend Brendan to my friends and family."
"I worked with Brendan on my move to Kelowna and bought my home, also when I moved and sold my home. Brendan is professional yet fun to work with, he provided options I never considered which helped reduce my stress during the sale. I would highly recommend Brendan to my friends and family. I am hoping to move back to Kelowna in the future and will definitely be calling on Brendan for my home purchase again."
"He made the whole process both times very smooth and as stress free as possible."
"Brendan helped us to buy our home and then sell it when we needed to. He made the whole process both times very smooth and as stress free as possible.

"Great local knowledge, knows the area. A great experience."
"Selling and buying was a great experience."
"Brendan was very professional and personable. Selling and buying was a great experience. We have done several real estate transactions with Brendan as our relator and are happy to recommend him. He responded to calls/ texts/ emails quickly. When we were selling he found several errors on the buyers offer and fixed them. He used technology such as Authentisign to make it very simple for us. Thanks Brendan, we love our new home."
"He was very informative and was able to answer all of our questions."

"I can say with out a doubt that Brendan was the best agent we have used."
"My husband and I have bought and sold a few homes in the past (in Sask) and I can say with out a doubt that Brendan was the best agent we have used. Brendan was very personable, professional and knowledgable. We were new to Kelowna and Brendan was very helpful in helping us get to know the city and steering us towards homes that fit our criteria. I have to say that we looked at a lot of houses in many different areas and our wants/ desires changed often. Brendan was so patient with us and always happy to oblige. We were comfortable with him from the start and came to see him as almost a friend. We will definitely use him again and would not hesitate at all to refer him to others. If you want someone professional and knowledgable and, most importantly, someone you feel comfortable with, Brendan is the one. Thanks so much Brendan for all the hard work you did for us!"
"This is our third home purchase, and so far he has been the best realtor we have worked with!"
"We recently moved to the Okanagan and were very grateful to have Brendan's guidance in purchasing a home in Kelowna. Brendan is professional in manner, and efficient in conducting real estate transactions. He was calm and reasonable when things were stressful, yet knew instinctively when to be firm to get the deal done. Overall, we were very satisfied with Brendan as a realtor. He communicates clearly, and understood our needs, the result was that we were able to find a great house relatively quickly, and paid below the asking price. This is our third home purchase, and so far he has been the best realtor we have worked with! The next time we are looking for a new home, we will definitely call Brendan, and would recommend him to anyone looking for a great realtor in Kelowna! Thank you so much for all your help Brendan!"
"Brendan is a very sincere, down-to-earth, and hard-working person."
"Brendan Stoneman is an exceptional real estate agent and we could not have been more pleased with his services. As newcomers to Kelowna, we relied heavily on Brendan’s knowledge and experience to help us navigate the housing market and purchase a home here. His guidance and help were invaluable and made the process exciting instead of stressful. Brendan was always available at our convenience; there was no time of the day (or night!) he wouldn't meet with us, and was always willing to go the extra mile to ensure that we saw the best of what was on the market in our price range. As a result of his hard work and persistence, we found our dream home after only looking for a short while. Brendan’s commitment did not end after the deal was signed or even after closing though. He went out of his way to ensure that we were 100% happy in our new home. Brendan is a very sincere, down-to-earth, and hard-working person. We couldn’t have been more pleased with him. Thank you Brendan for taking the stress out of buying a home. We feel so fortunate to have had you as our agent and whole-heartedly recommend your services."
"I can't say enough about the great experiences we've had with Brendan Stoneman as our agent."
"I can't say enough about the great experiences we've had with Brendan Stoneman as our agent. First Brendan found me the PERFECT starter home. Close to downtown and the cultural district, walking distance to the rec center and the mall, with comfortable outdoor living spaces and vegetable gardens, and a lower floor bedroom and bath for a roommate; he listened to my list of wants and needs and found me a home to suit every one of them and more. It was like he knew what I would want even better than I did! In 2012, after welcoming our first child to the world, it was time to upsize. We weren't seriously looking, not in a major rush, but every time something that fit the bill came up Brendan was sure to send us the link. This led to the purchase of our dream family home, within our price range, after it had been on the market only three days! I would recommend Brendan's services to anyone and everyone."
"Brendan went out of his way to help us sell our home."
"Very happy with the service, Brendan went out of his way to help us sell our home. As we live out of the Province, he made a lot of phone calls on our behalf in order get our rental property cleaned up and ready for the market. We could not have gotten our place sold without all his help. I would refer him to anyone wanting to buy or sell in an instant."
"We had two other realtors represent our property for 16 months...We listed with Brendan and sold the property within two weeks."
"We had two other realtors represent our property for 16 months prior to hiring Brendan Stoneman. We listed with Brendan and sold the property within two weeks. As we were not living in Kelowna at the time, correspondence was all done by calls and emails; we found them to be quick and efficient in answering any questions we had and finalizing the sale. I would recommend them to anyone selling a property."
"Brendan was open and honest from the start."
"Brendan was open and honest from the start. He knew that I planned on selling my townhouse but never pressured me into asking him to be my agent. When I did ask him, he was very happy to do his best to get me the best deal possible in a difficult market. He did this and I was very impressed with his thoroughness in explaining things to me carefully. I would recommend him to my friends if they needed someone to represent them in real estate. I will be using Brendan again in the future when I have to sell my parents home and buy a condominium for myself."
"Brendan came through and delivered for us!"
"Brendan came through and delivered for us!! We are new to town and were renting a basement suite. Not a good fit for our growing family but made due for the time being. As the year approached ending, the banks decided to change the way they lend money and really put on the crunch and stress of time. Late noticed and a late introduction led us to Brendan. He made time to meet us and get to know us, and find out what we were looking for. As we thought we were being picky and choosy, hoping not to piss off our realtor as we really didn't know exactly what we were looking for, he was able to help us navigate through and narrow things down. Then we were able to re-evaluate and figure out what the important things that we really wanted were. After that we were able to find a home and put in an offer that we felt was fair. Obviously not what was the asking price and again Brendan was able to negotiate with the other realtor and owners to come down to obviously an agreeable price. All in all it was a learning experience especially when moving to a new town and city and not knowing the where to be places. Glad to have Brendan as our unofficial home tour guide."
"I felt that we had someone on our side through the whole process that we could trust."
"I expected that our experience of buying our first home would be very intimidating, confusing, and stressful, but I knew that any hardships would be worth it. I soon realized that I was wrong about what to expect when we met with Brendan Stoneman. He was very flexible with his time, knowledgeable of his trade, and came across as a down to earth person, who was just as excited about our big purchase as we were. He took the time to find answers for any questions that we had through the entire experience, whether or not it was even a topic he was involved with, or would direct us to the appropriate person. I felt that we had someone on our side through the whole process that we could trust, which made buying our first home an experience that was not intimidating or confusing - instead, with the Brendan's help, it was the most exciting experience of my life."
"Brendan went over and above."
"I feel that Brendan went over and above what he needed to do to help me sell my place as well as helping me buy the new place, as it was not an easy buy/sell."
"The knowledge and experience he brings to his position was remarkable."
"After meeting Brendan we felt immediately at ease, the knowledge and experience he brings to his position was remarkable. Our questions were always answered clearly and punctually which helped to take the uneasy edge of buying real estate away. Brendan was always willing to work on our schedule which was great, and very patient as our ideas and desires changed. Great advocates for their clients and never seemed to be in a rush to get somewhere else. Overall, I would recommend and have been recommending Brendan to my friends and family. We look forward to working with him again in the future."
"We are SO happy with our new home, and the help and service Brendan provided for us. We are looking forward to referring Brendan to all of our friends and family, and using his services again in the future."
