I have been Buying, Selling, and Successfully Investing in Real Estate throughout the Okanagan Valley for 20 years.
I have completed Post-Secondary education courses through Okanagan University College, Simon Fraser University, University of Alberta, and UBC Sauder School of Business.
I have personally owned Investment properties throughout the Okanagan Valley; from short term flips, long term holding rental property investments in Kelowna and Vernon, to a lifestyle vacation property at Big White ski resort.
My Wife Ria of 28 years and I have been blessed to grow up in Kelowna and have raised our two children in the North Glenmore Wilden Neighborhood. My family originated in Kelowna since 1966 and Ria's family since 1945; we are proud to be part of three generations of watching Kelowna grow and prosper.
I have always known that Kelowna is beautiful and has lots to offer. But Now, so does the rest of the World! What an exciting time to be in the Okanagan Real Estate market. Kelowna has so much more amenities now with an International Airport, KGH, Cancer Clinic, UBC, Okanagan Lake, Wineries, Big White ski resort, new developments, and constant influx of new people moving to the Okanagan Valley for the lifestyle.
I have a strong proven background in Sales and Marketing with small to large corporations. This experience and training in negotiating, contract writing, meeting strict timelines and budgets, offers a definite advantage in the Real Estate Buying and Selling process.
Due to my Passion and love for Real Estate; It would be my privilege to share all my experience and knowledge with you if you are looking to make a change to your present location in the Okanagan Valley, moving here for the first time, or looking to Invest in the Okanagan Real Estate market.

Garry D. Harder
Licensed Real Estate Agent with Sage Executive Group Real Estate
I have been a successful Certified Interior Designer for over 25 years. I have extensive training and experience in home staging, space planning, lighting, colour, flooring, furniture, and designing and renovating our personal Investment properties.
I have completed the Certified Interior Design program through Okanagan University College and Post-Secondary Design courses through University of Alberta in their Degree program.
I have worked with New Home Builders and Contractors to design complete interior and exterior home packages for their clients and was the Feature Designer for "Homes for the Holidays" in Kelowna on two occasions.
I have strong background in buying, redesigning, and selling homes in the Okanagan. As a professional designer I have been able to create faster turnaround times and provide top dollar for the seller. As a Designer, I can also help retain more profit by preventing home owners from making costly unnecessary mistakes.
Typically, your home is the most expensive item you will ever own. To create a larger potential profit and a faster Sale may require some staging, space planning, colour, adequate lighting, and decluttering. An impartial artistic professional eye may be required to assist in this process and set your home above the competition.
The Purchase of your new home may also require a designer’s eye to achieve the home of your dreams.
Included in our Real Estate Services is ONE HOUR of Interior Design consultation for our clients that are Selling or Buying at No Charge.
I look forward to providing you with the information you need to sell your home quickly and/or help you create a functional and beautiful living space in your new home.
