JUSTIN O'CONNOR | Sotheby's International Realty Canada
What is your position / title and company, and what do you do there?
I'm Justin O’Connor, Senior Vice President, Sales, and I launched the Sotheby’s International Realty Canada office in Kelowna where my team and I sell luxury residential real estate.
How long have you been in the Okanagan? If you aren’t originally from the valley, what led you to call the Okanagan ‘home’?
Raised on a ranch an hour outside of Kelowna, I had a desire to further my education to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities in a larger market. After earning a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree from Okanagan University College in Kelowna, I moved to the Lower Mainland and worked as a financial planner with RBC Dominion Securities. In 2011, I returned to the valley and purchased Okanagan HOME Magazine and obtained my real estate license. I missed the sense of community, the beauty and opportunity of this region. This truly is one of the best places to live in Canada, if not North America. I strive to do my part to give back to this community that I love.
