Steve Kirk – Realtor®
I’ve been in Real Estate since June of 2008. Starting my Real Estate career at the beginning of the economic downturn was a challenging endeavor but one that allowed me to find the strength and knowledge to move forward when many were calling it quits. I’m still here and having fun! The first 7 years of my Real Estate career were a partnership with my father, Peter Kirk, who is now Managing Broker of our office and one of the busiest RE/MAX offices in Western Canada. The knowledge I gained through mentorship, experience and our daily working relationship helped strengthen my already strong work ethic.
Prior to my Real Estate career I spent 10 years in the customer service industry as manager of one of the busiest grocery stores in the Marketplace IGA chain. My dedication, drive, enthusiasm and work ethic gave me opportunities to leap ahead in a competitive internal industry. Hired as a clerk who bags groceries, I quickly rose to management within 4 years. My goal was to learn every day and always do something more than expected. From time management to people management to creative problem solving, I learned a lot and continue to carry those lessons in my day to day life and work life.
My business continues to grow and be successful because of the relationships I’ve built. I pride myself on hard work, honesty, integrity and the desire to work hard for my clients. If I can help you the way I’ve helped others, I will sleep well at night. This is what I do! This is what I enjoy!
Thanks for sharing your time with me. I wish you all the best on your home sale. If I can help in any way, just ask.
Mike Kirk – Realtor®
Since being put on skis at the age of 2, my love for the outdoors has grown immensely. I occupy my time in the spring, summer, and fall with Mountain biking and spend my winters on the hill skiing. I love that the Okanagan provides me the opportunity to explore the mountains and enjoy the outdoors year round. Living an active lifestyle and spending so much time in the outdoors I developed a love for action photography, which led me to pursue a career as a Photographer for a number of years before dialing it back to enjoy as a life-long hobby.
Having 10 + years experience in the customer service industry, mainly working in the bicycle and ski industry, was invaluable in teaching me how to understand people’s needs by asking the right questions and knowing how to use the information given to find the products that suit them best.
Working in real estate has allowed me to direct all of the skills and knowledge acquired during my time in the service industry to help people find their new home in the Okanagan Valley. I get immense joy out of helping my clients move closer to their goals, no matter how big or small!
Our family has an extensive real estate backround, with our father Peter Kirk having 25+ years in the industry and recently retiring from the sales position and moving to the Owner/Managing broker position here at RE/MAX Kelowna. My brother Steve who I have partnered up with has 10+ years in the business, as well as our middle brother Kevin who is working on the Property Management side with RE/MAX Management Solutions taking care of the Rental side of the industry.
All in all, the Kirk family can help you out no matter what your needs. I can’t begin to say how excited I am to be part of what has become a great family business providing people with the great service they deserve.
