When We Aren’t Working


Our Top Picks

When we’re not working hard buying and selling homes and properties in the South Okanagan, we can be found on a sunny patio enjoying a glass of wine, dining in one of our locally sourced restaurants or taking in the magnificent outdoor activities the area has to offer.  We highlight our faves below, and invite you to send us your top picks too!



Smuggler's Smokehouse

Why we like:

Checking out our friends new restaurant and of course in typical Karrie and Paul fashion we show up after they closed but lucky for us……they are willing to make us food anyway! Thank you Shayna Dawn Merritt!!  Oh, and this is killer Traditional southern BBQ.  Right across from the Landmark Theatre on Winnipeg St.

The Vanilla Pod Restaurant

at Poplar Grove Winery

Vanilla Pod at Poplar Grove

Stunning views, close to city, a great wine list, interesting menu, exceptional service.

Dirty Laundry


Dirty Laundry Vineyard, Summerland

Pretty patio that sprays a light mist on hot days, offers local cheeses and charcuterie plates, and even has ice cream to keep your kids happy!
