|Well this is going to be a long overdue review.. Steve.. what can one say about this guy? Well to be honest nothing short of amazing.. We first met Steve on Easter weekend he showed us a house he had listed from the time we shook his hand and introduced ourselves we knew we were in GREAT hands. We didn't but the house that he had listed but shopped around the market with him and saw about 12 different houses and as this is our first time buying a home Steve made it an amazing experience to say the least. I remember several comments through the process from him that ranged from "you need to tell me when you find the house you want to make an offer on" - "I am not going to ask if you want to make an offer" to the very far end of the spectrum "I am hoping you don't mind me saying this, but your NOT putting an offer on this one" Steve always looks and searches for the best possible fit for your client. He isn't one to chase the dollar and up sell you on homes so he can make more money. He is there to educate and help you make proper housing decisions and guide you through the entire process. We also ran in to a really unique Hiccup if you will that in all of his years of doing this and experience he has never come across. But with the amazing colleagues Steve was able to reach out and get us the best possible answer and solution to our problem effectively and efficiently! I would and do recommend Steve Higgins at every chance I get when I hear people are buying a home, solely based on the amazing experience that we had. Steve is such an amazing realtor that he even impressed the heck out of my in-laws that have their "go-to" realtor that they have been using and trusting for years and years. The offer letters and thoroughness of Steve's work has won even the toughest critics over.. And trust me I have never seen my father in law like that. With all that said I haven't done this review justice Steve Higgins is an amazing realtor and my wife and I are truly lucky to not only have him as our realtor in the future, but also someone that we can call a great friend. A year later Steve is still in contact and we reach out to him with questions about updating the home and doing things that will help raise the value of our home, and as busy as he is he does these extras for us with a smile! Steve from Tanya and I you are TOP NOTCH and the best Realtor out there!!
|We purchased our home in Kelowna in August 2014 through Steve. Steve was unbelievable to work with. He listened to our questions and concerns, was fun, friendly and professional, extremely accommodating and very well informed. Most importantly we trusted Steve completely. It was obvious he had our best interests at heart. He found us exactly what we were looking for and negotiated a price that fit our budget. He made the process enjoyable and stress free. Without hesitation, we strongly recommend using Steve.
|My spouse and I moved to Kelowna last year and Steve was nothing short of amazing! He made a point of showing us different areas so we could really get a feel for where we wanted our new home to be, which was very beneficial. Once we found our new home (which we LOVE) and had an offer in, Steve still took the time to continue to show us around to make sure it was what we wanted. He gave us honest opinions about the locations we were interested in (accessibility, views, parks, schools, etc.) and was diligent and accommodating for our tight schedule while we were in town. If you are looking for a realtor who will make sure you find the perfect home, THIS IS YOUR GUY!!
|Steve helped my wife and I purchase our first home. We really appreciated all of the work Steve put in arranging countless viewings, helping us find our perfect home, and guiding us through the process of purchasing our first home. We would highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to purchase a new home.
|Steve was very helpful in finding us the best investment property for our dollar in Kelowna! His background in investment realty and great work ethic proved an invaluable asset and simplified the process immensely. I highly recommend Steve to anyone looking for an easy buying process!

|Ron and Megan Smaha My husband and I have recently sold and bought a home through Steve Higgins of Remax Kelowna. We would highly recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling their home. We found him accessible, very flexible and highly professional at all times. He always represented our best interest and negotiated aggressively, on our behalf. We felt he really cared about us and spent a lot of time making sure we were comfortable with all aspects of each transaction. We were never rushed or pushed into any decisions and found that he provided us with all the information we needed to proceed with our deals in a manner that suited us. We tried to sell our home through a discount broker the year before unsuccessfully, and felt that we did not receive the service or accessibility to the MLS market that we had with Remax, and Steve in particular. He knew we were in a tougher buyers market and we would require a good deal of exposure and promotion to get our home sold and he was willing to do open houses, pamphlets and calls to get the job done. Thanks Steve! Yours truly, Ron and Megan Smaha Jan. 9/2013
|Never used Mr. Higgins as a realtor. I have used many realtors over the years and the total of all them wouldn't meet the results I would take for granted with Steve.
|Steve has incredible integrity and a keen sense of what "doing the right thing" every time means. I would not hesitate to recommend Steve to anyone I wanted to ensure needed exceptional service and professional advice.
|Steve is a loyal and true friend. When making business decisions I trust Steve implicitly. He always assesses the costs and benefits from every angle before he makes a decision. Steve has a knack for seeing the Big picture and he can think it through to the most beneficial conclusion. All that, and he is a great guy!
|I have had the pleasure to know Steve both professionally and personally for about 15 years. He is always professional and passionate about what he does and how he interacts with everyone around him. I consistently found our dealings to be fair, honest, informative and enjoyable, even when our meetings involved high level negotiations. He is a bright, articulate person who easily earns your trust and respect. Because of these characteristics, it strikes me that Steve will be effective and successful in whatever he sets out to do.

It is my belief that Steve will be successful in any position or operation. He is a well liked and respected leader that motivates a staff and takes great care of the customer.

|W. Scott Holmes
|Steve & SR&J represent those attributes that are critical to me as a business partner. Incredible value with flawless execution, integrity and vision based on enduring relationships.
|I have had the privilege of working with Steve in many different capacities over the past 16 years; he has been a leader, a mentor, and a colleague during that time. At AT&T Transtech Canada Steve provided strong leadership, and always took the time motivate and challenge me. I have enjoyed great success over the past 16 years, a lot of which I owe to the foundation I created while working under Steve’s guidance. In recent years Steve and I have worked together on other projects, all of which enjoyed success and further solidified the respect I have for Steve as a business partner, colleague and friend. Steve operates with great integrity; he is a loyal business partner with a tremendous amount to offer. I would like to take this opportunity to formally endorse Steve and wish him nothing but the best going forward.
|When you meet Steve for the first time you will get an immediate impression that he's a true leader. Steve demonstrated leadership skills early on in his career and it's carried forward to today where he is a seasoned executive in the Contact Center/Service Provider space. He has an easy going manner with strong organizational skills. Tie that to his strong desire to be the best at what he does and you get an exceptional executive. I recommend Steve without hesitation and if you're lucky enough to get a chance to see him in action you'll be impressed with his strategic thinking and delivery abilities.
