We highly recommend ShElley
"Shelley Parker was such an amazing realtor to work with, we originally lived in Kelowna and knew very little about Summerland. She was so knowledgeable about the area and really understood our vision for a home. She did her homework for us, and showed us close to 15 homes.
The one we ended up purchasing was one she said “I found you your dream home!” and she was right. Being first time home buyers we really didn't know where to start. She was there for us from start to finish explaining everything to us in terms we always understood. We would HIGHLY recommend using Shelley Parker for purchasing your home. Whether you're in-town or from out of town she is amazing. Thanks again Shelley!"
-Sara and Denver Stang, Summerland
Discretion + confidentiality
"I had the opportunity to work with Shelley and Blaine for the recent sale of my acreage. It was a difficult situation as it was a divorce sale. Both Shelley and Blaine worked very hard to get the best price possible and were 100% professional and understanding when communicating with us seperately. I had heard that acreages can take some time to sell from other realtors but Shelley and Blaine knew how to market the property and find perspective buyers so the property sold within 2 months. I highly recommend Parker Real Estate if you are thinking of buying or selling.
They made a difficult situation bearable, and I can not thank them enough!"
- Robyn Budney, Summerland
Candid & sincere
"We first met Shelley at an open house while we were waiting for our home to sell in Burnaby. We were so impressed that we kept her in mind for when we would need a local agent after the sale of our property.
She developed an understanding of what we were really looking for before we did. We visited a lot of properties from Peachland to Oliver and Shelley was quite candid about the realities of some of the properties we viewed. She would pick up potential concerns and ensure we considered them when evaluating each home.
Shelley didn’t in any way sell us on our new house. She knows when to step back and let the property sell itself. She was extremely helpful in helping us find, evaluate and negotiate for our new home.
Shelley continually impressed us with her knowledge, sincerity and her blend of professionalism and friendliness. We now have a great new “nest” thanks to Shelley’s expertise and guidance.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Shelley to anyone needing a top-notch real estate agent in the Okanagan."
- Dave & Lindsay, Peachland

"After interviewing three other listing realtors we met with Shelley and Blaine. They brought unmatched enthusiasm and insisted our Lower Town home was worth much more than we thought. We could tell they were both experienced and had long time knowledge of the Summerland market. Our house sold in weeks and for a price over $60,000 higher than other realtors were suggesting we list for. Very happy with the transaction and no regrets choosing Shelley and Blaine. The South Okanagan is very fortunate to have Shelley and Blaine, in our experience of working with many realtors, they are absolutely the best!"
Francis & Lisa, Vancouver Island
Efficient & Prompt
"I first met Shelley at a local gathering and mentioned to her that I might be interested in selling my condo. A couple weeks later I called and she was there within the hour. She had my condo listed and sold within the week. Shelley is honest, professional and prompt. I will not hesitate to engage her in any of my future real estate transactions."
- Donna Fillmore, Summerland
Incredible professional knowledge
"When we were referred to Shelley Parker to help us find a new home, we were told we would receive a very personal and professional experience. That is exactly what we got. Shelley clearly understood our wants and needs in a new home, and helped us stay focused on that as we searched properties. As a long-time resident of the South Okanagan, Shelley was able to provide insight to neighbourhood histories and trends, which greatly assisted us in decision making. That history, coupled with incredible professional knowledge made this home purchasing experience our most enjoyable ever. We have referred people to Shelley with our highest recommendations, and will continue to do so."
- Dave and Kelly Dowling, Penticton
Work with Shelley – she cares!
"Shelley Parker has been my realtor through numerous home transactions, both in buying and selling. I have found Shelley to be personable, friendly, loyal and diligent. She is always working in the best interests of her clients. One thing that stands out about Shelley is her ability to think outside the box, and on many occasions, has been able to see past what is and to the possibilities that a property has to offer. It has always been to
our benefit. Shelley is more than just a realtor, she becomes a friend, and who doesn’t want a friend helping them out in such a large transaction such as buying or selling a home.
Work with someone who cares, work with Shelley Parker."
- Kimberly Mackereth, Summerland
Shelley understands all aspects of real estate
"When we put our country acreage up for sale in order to downsize and move into Summerland, Shelley used her in-depth knowledge to walk us through the process, from deciding on a list price, to staging our home, to recommending professionals we'd need in the process. Selling an acreage takes longer than other types of property, but Shelley pulled out all the stops with her marketing and her connections which resulted in a sale.
Shelley also provided us with excellent options in terms of finding a new house. We ended up putting an offer on a court-ordered sale – where bidders submit sealed bids to a court judge. A nerve-wracking experience but Shelley again helped us understand the process. She gave us a most valuable piece of advice about how to structure the offer... and once all the offers were read by the judge, she announced we had the highest bid! This was strictly due to Shelley's style of putting together the offer. Exciting day and we love our new house!"
- Matt Dykstra, Summerland
dream home finder
"When my wife and I decided to make the move from Vancouver to Summerland we knew buying a home would mean compromise. Whether it was deciding between location, price, and features we knew we couldn't have it all. At least we thought that, until we started working with Shelley.
When we met, we told Shelley about our dream house, never expecting to hit every item on the list. Acting as our advocate in the crazy world of real-estate, Shelley worked tirelessly and in the end found us a home meeting every single one of our criteria. She will always have our gratitude and the strongest of recommendations.
Thanks again Shelley for getting us our house! We love it every day."
Brendan & Andrea, Summerland
"Blaine, I would like to say, THANK YOU for providing a positive real estate selling experience. From the very first contact I had with you and your team, you were nothing but friendly, professional, knowledge and extremely efficient. Throughout the sale process, you kept me constantly informed throughout as well as being very thoughtful and courteous of my family's time and needs. Last, but not least, I was delighted with the price and feel that you definitely earned your fees. I will certainly be recommending you to anyone I know who is looking to sell or buy property. Thank you once again for making a potentially stressful experience remarkably easy."
- Trevor Allen, Summerland
Knowledge unsurpassed by any other realtor
"Shelley works tirelessly for her clients to find them the perfect home or property for their needs. Her knowledge of the Okanagan is unsurpassed by any other realtor in the area. While providing Shelley with my needs and wants for home searching she found many great options and found exactly what I was looking for; in fact, she found properties that I didn’t even know were good viable options and ultimately found me the perfect home I didn’t even know I was looking for!
I am so glad she is my realtor as I am so happy and comfortable in the home she found for me. It is perfect and as her client she truly cares about finding you the perfect home/property and wants you to be fully satisfied with your purchase!
Thank you, Shelley!"
- Darren McWatters, Summerland

"Shelley worked with us for a couple of years while we transitioned to Summerland from Alberta. She shared lots of information about what living in the Okanagan consisted of and was nothing but supportive of our dream. She helped us find the perfect house by her ability to think outside the box, and before we knew it we were here! When it came time to sell, we did not hesitate to ask Shelley to market the property for us. Our home sold in a reasonable time frame and for a very good price. Shelley literally went over and above for us, and we will always be thankful for her personable, honest, and knowledgable support.
We would recommend Shelley to anyone, whether it be for your first home, your retirement home and everything in between!! Trust me, you won't regret having Shelley Parker representing you!"
