Geoff Hays

Real Estate Professional
Partner, Director of Sales

Geoff is proud to call Kelowna home for over 15 years now. One of the best decisions of his life was leaving Vancouver for the lifestyle that the Okanagan has to offer. Living, working and playing in one of the top destinations (in the world) is a dream that he is fortunate enough to call reality.

Growing up, Geoff knew early on he would excel in an entrepreneurial role. From a young boy and finding ways to leverage his time and resources to make the most amount of money on his local ‘paper route’….to eventually earning the Business Excellence Award from one of the largest telecommunication companies across Canada. If there is one thing Geoff knows…and knows well –it is sales! He was awarded the TOP sales representative with Bell Mobility in BC, two years in a row. At this time he felt the desire to further challenge himself, so took to managing and building teams from the ground up. He built the top selling team in Canada (competing against over 700 teams). 5 years in a row they landed in the top 1% in Canada. His role shifted once again, to helping teams that were struggling and turn them into top producers. After 10 years of success in telecommunications, sales, marketing and management he felt the need for an even greater challenge…enter the world of Real Estate.

Geoff and real estate is truly a match made in heaven. Given his success in his previous roles, it is no surprise that he is now one of Kelowna’s top producing agents. The carry over from the tech industry and leveraging this into his current role has been paramount to his success. Not to mention his ability to listen and adapt to the ever-changing needs of sellers and buyers has been one of his greatest strengths.

He is passionate about helping and guiding others and believes that buying or selling a home is about more than the transaction…it should be an experience that you want to tell your friends and family about. Only then is his job done.

In his free time (which isn’t much), he spent years on his Strata council and was voted Strata President for 5 consecutive years. You will also find him volunteering at his church in the music and art department (ask him about his drumming background). In 2016 he raised money dancing on Swinging with the Stars (for the Central Okanagan Hospice Society). And, every winter you will see him involved with the Fill the Van for Sally Ann food drive organized by Royal LePage and Save-On Foods. Another organization that tugs his on his heart is the SPCA…and he will go out of his way to give some extra love to animal in need. (Disclaimer, he may also get sidetracked when showing properties if there are any pets).

Geoff believes you can never stop learning and constantly improving. This is a tremendous attribute when looking for your next agent. Real estate and our local market is constantly changing…you want an agent that will adapt to this change, to have your best interests in mind and be humble enough to know that there is never one perfect answer. Every client has different goals, wants and needs…you want someone working for YOU, that knows the solution to achieving these things may be different each and every time.

Krista Marble

Real Estate Professional
Partner, Director of Marketing

Krista was born and raised in Kelowna. She grew up playing every sport the Okanagan has to offer but eventually found success in triathlons and basketball. She was a member of the National Junior Triathlon Team, but after high school switched gears to obtain her Bachelor of Physical Education from the University of Alberta. Here she joined the starting line up and was named Captain of the U of A varsity basketball team. After graduating she traveled and worked in Australia and New Zealand but always knew she’d come back to her hometown. She fell back into the Okanagan active lifestyle, but her competitive nature needed to train for something…so she set her sights on the Penticton Ironman. After taking the 1st place finish for amateur athletes, and 9th amongst the professionals, in a time of 9:58:31, she was named Canada’s long-distance amateur triathlete of the year.

Since then, she became immersed in a career with her family’s construction company. She juggled management, sales, estimating, and all the administrative work, while raising three beautiful daughters. When her father retired, she ran the company along with her brother for 9 years before deciding it was time to for a change.

With her extensive knowledge of the local neighbourhoods and schools, connections with homebuilders, experience in sales and marketing along with her tenacious spirit, she found her calling in real estate. Krista is dedicated, motivated, and pours her heart and soul into her clients. She wants all her clients to reach their goals, whether it’s purchasing their first home, adding to their investment portfolio, or selling for top dollar. Her work ethic, optimistic attitude, negotiating skills and communication ensure a 5 star experience every time. Her goal is to not just to help you buy or sell with confidence but is to create an experience you’ll feel compelled to tell your friends and family about.

When not working, any free time is spent with her family and girls; either coaching her daughters’ basketball, managing soccer, hiking with her dog, or enjoying a wonderful local wine on the patio! She believes in living life to the fullest, and puts 110% into everything she does.

As an experienced agent with a proven track record, Krista understands that buying and selling is one of the biggest decisions in a client’s life and views the guidance of her clients through this process as a true privilege.
