With its easy access to sought-after schools, playgrounds and provincial and regional parks, the Okanagan is the ideal place for families to settle, and has been ranked one of British Columbia’s most liveable areas. The Okanagan’s exclusive neighbourhoods boast stunning valley and mountain views, peaceful streets and friendly neighbours coupled with conveniently located, family-friendly amenities and activities. Luxury Okanagan properties give you and your family the space to grow and flourish.
Luxury real estate in the Okanagan’s most singular neighbourhoods provides the perfect combination of postcard-perfect vistas that will make you feel like you’re on vacation year-round, walkable neighbourhoods with safe, quiet streets and nearby access to many elementary and secondary schools, parks and playgrounds.
In Kelowna’s Upper Mission real estate market, for example, find yourself a sprawling family home close to top schools, some of Kelowna’s best beaches and locally owned stores and restaurants that add to the neighbourhood’s character. Nearby, the idyllic Kettle Valley neighbourhood, one of the city’s most coveted communities, boasts custom-built luxury real estate with plenty of space for the kids to play, and abundant nature and wildlife spaces.
The highly walkable Lower Mission, filled with families, retirees and couples, offers stunning lakefront real estate, proximity to grocery stores and farmer’s markets, and access to several of Okanagan Lake’s boat launches — perfect for a day out on the water with the family. The family-friendly Dilworth neighbourhood offers spacious properties abutting sprawling farmland, with proximity to riding stables, great schools — including ones that offer alternative programming — and plenty of hiking and biking trails.
The Okanagan's most exclusive neighbourhoods are conveniently located near several hiking and biking trails.
The Okanagan provides an endless number of exciting activities for after school or action-packed weekends. Spend your winters outdoors with memorable activities like cross-country and downhill skiing, tubing, skating and snowshoeing at one of the region’s family-friendly ski resorts.
In the Spring break out the bikes for an exhilarating and beautiful ride along the renowned Kettle Valley Railway Trail around Myra Canyon, a short drive outside of Kelowna, an adventure opportunity that will last until late fall.
In the summer, the Okanagan’s many pristine lakes beckon, where your family can paddle board on Kalamalka Lake in Vernon, kayak in the Okanagan Lake or take an inner tube or raft down the Okanagan River channel, starting in Penticton.
For a leisurely excursion, take the kids to a u-pick to pick fresh cherries, apricots, peaches and apples grown in your own backyard, or tour one of the region’s many organic farms. On the Kettle Valley steam railway, ride by picturesque vineyards, orchards and lake views.
Foster your children’s creative growth through Kelowna’s thriving cultural district downtown, where you can take in a show at the Kelowna Community Theatre and enjoy enriching educational programming at the Rotary Centre for the Arts or the Kelowna Art Gallery.
Take the kids to one of the Okanagan's multiple family-friendly ski resorts.

Originally got Brody Mader's name when I contacted his firm in Kelowna after doing about 3 months of research with multiple sales organizations on the 'Net prior to putting our home in the Lower Mainland up for sale. He responded to my request for assistance but at no time pressured us to make a quick decision, even after our home sold much more quickly than anticipated and we were in a bit of a panic. He patiently led us through the home selection process, introducing us to completely new areas with preparation, guidance and thoughtful comment. That was about 6 months ago. We are now completely satisfied with our purchase and our new neighbourhood. As such, we would not hesitate to recommend Brody to anyone contemplating a move.

Your professionalism and assertiveness made our home purchase process so efficient and stress-free. What stands out even more is the personal commitment and friendly follow-ups after the move as well as real estate market advice years later.
— Doris and Ron
Most importantly, our needs and interests were always put before making a sale.

I had the opportunity to work with Kaity when I was looking for a home to buy last year. I absolutely loved hanging out with Kaity and looking at places, she kept me well informed of all properties that came up that would meet my criteria. And was most helpful with information leading me to house insurance, law firms etc… Always on time and very accommodating. I would use the team at Okanagan Lifestyle again in a heartbeat.

Our agent Kaity has been absolutely amazing throughout this whole process of buying our home and selling our townhome. Kaity has always answered our calls and is very good at getting back to you immediately. She looked after all our needs and questions right away and made herself available at all times. Kaity even went the extra mile to make us a custom photo book of our first home so we could always remember where our family started, what a gift to treasure forever! Kaity deserves to be recognized by your company as she is a true gem and that is hard to come by these days! We can't say enough good things about her and have already recommended her to a few friends!
