FAIR REALTY, a fully Canadian owned company, opened its first brokerage office in Victoria, British Columbia in 2002. Since then 17 offices have been opened across the province with plans to expand into Alberta in the near future.
Our office in Sorrento was first started by Rich and Pauline Wiens in 2009. However, prior to that, the 1257 TransCanada Hwy office in Sorrento had been a Real Estate office since the 1980’s when the building was built.
Shalon Clarke’s parents Sabine and Bernard Guilbault originally owned the office under a different brokerage for a number of years. Shalon became familiar with the space and formed an attachment to it when she got licenced in 2016. She became on the first REALTORS® at FAIR REALTY along with Desmond Arens, Brenda Patterson, and Rich and Pauline Wiens. After several successful years of running the FAIR REALTY office in Sorrento, Rich and Pauline decided to step back and enjoy more of their hobbies and travelling.
Shalon purchased the Sorrento office in June 2019 and then in early 2020 when she was looking for ways to expand into Salmon Arm, along came Jayson Tracy with an extensive background in sales and a very strong involvement in the community with the fire department, first responders team and being a proud father of two great girls. FAIR REALTY was ready for expansion with the new business partnership to open a new office in Salmon Arm in the early stages of a worldwide pandemic.
With two offices now in the Shuswap - one in Sorrento and and one in Salmon Arm - and 14 Fair Realty agents to serve you, our goal is simple. Create the most value for clients in one of the most significant transactions of most Canadian’s lives – buying and selling homes. With plans for adding more agents and offices, there is no slow-down in growth anticipated, highly trained REALTORS® whose sole focus is on meeting clients’’ needs. We believe in the simple, age-old truth that when you make people happy by looking after them, your business grows.
