Here is example of the feedback Bo has received from clients:
“Bo and his team handled the sale of our home with the highest level of professionalism combined with the personal touch you would expect from a friend. We highly recommend him for the closest thing to a stress-free transaction as possible.” Cathy & Cornel
“It is our pleasure to recommend the Bo Knows Homes Real Estate Team. Navigating our way through both the buying and selling process was eased by their professional knowledge of the local real estate market. We appreciated their attention in every detail from marketing our home, price negotiations, to ensure a smooth transition into our new home. We found them to be reliable, honest, with excellent communication skills. A superb Realty team we would not hesitate to use again!” Lori & Don
“Bo Knows Homes has the experience, knowledge and skills to broker a real estate deal. More than that, though, Bo and his team have the capacity to listen and truly understand what the client wants. This is particularly meaningful in real estate because, in working with them, you know that they won’t try to sell you anything other than what you truly want or need. I’d recommend Bo to anyone looking to either list or buy a property in the Okanagan” AdaPia
“I approached Bo Skapski and the Bo Knows Homes Team and I must say that I was very satisfied with how knowledgeable they were with the area and market conditions. They were easy to deal with and made the whole process seem simple. I am so pleased to be here in the Okanagan. It’s a beautiful and friendly place, with an endless list of things to do. I would highly recommend the Bo Knows Homes Team.” Guy
“Bo and his team have helped me to both purchase and sell a home in Kelowna. I found him to be knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. Most importantly for me, was that he made the process efficient, which freed up my time to do other things. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is considering selling or buying real estate in the Okanagan” Ian
