Jesse East posted an incredible 59% year-over-year increase in transactions in 2016. While a historically hot Kelowna market was a factor, East credits the love he has for his work for keeping him motivated and managing the flood of demand.
“When you enjoy what you are doing, from sports to charity to working with clients, it’s simple to connect with people,” he says.
Those connections, especially with others in the industry, have had a huge impact on East’s happiness as an agent. From his former colleagues at Royal LePage to his indispensable assistant at RE/MAX Kelowna, East’s professional relationships are often lifelong.
“Colleagues at both brokerages have become like my extended family. I’m very proud to have so many as friends and mentors,” he says.
