Canadians are into owning their own homes—older generations are always touting a 25-year mortgage as the road to security and freedom. For many of us born somewhere between the mid-80s and before the year 2000, security and freedom are mutually exclusive. The realities of being young and house-poor are in thousands of opinion pieces and Buzzfeed articles. But you know what, it’s not that bad, there are a lot of benefits to home ownership and the line between security and freedom is like a fun slackline that us young people can get down on.


First of all, you can be nomadic but still benefit from a purchase and sale. You don’t have to own a house for 25 years to be successful at the real estate game. Short term gains are a real thing, even with

This Easter weekend, Rory and Kelsey had a better reason to eat chocolate and even pop some champagne - it's because they will be doing it from the comfort of their new home in Rivershore! They found an amazing A-Frame style home just above the South Thompson River near some of their friends. They discovered the value of this community to be outstanding in comparison to a lot of other areas of town, and it just so happens the neighbourhood has it's own world class golf course Rivershore Estates & Golf Links. Did we mention that it's a bike ride away from the legendary patio at Harper's Trail Winery?

Let Tyrel and Torrey to the hunting for you.

When we were first contacted by Tony and Corrie from Big Lakes County, Alberta, we were excited to show them an amazing acreage that we had listed and available in Pritchard. Pritchard is a friendly community about 25min east of Kamloops which is a stones throw to the coveted and award winning Monte Creek Ranch Winery. After discovering that they loved the idea of being surrounded by the mountains and trees and were fond of horses being in the area, we knew this was going to be the right property for them. They now have everything they were looking for with a bit of breathing room so they can enjoy the peace and quiet that this area has to offer. Congratulations from The Hough Brother Team.

There are a lot of good, qualified buyers shopping right

One week before she left on vacation to Australia, we helped Tessa secure a beautifully-updated townhouse in Sahali, steps away from staple Kamloops bistros like Natures Fare and Caffe Motivo. Being that we're in the beaming age of technology, we were able to coordinate with her from afar and digitally facilitate all necessary paperwork so she wouldn't miss this opportunity. Now she gets to focus on putting her personal touch on the decor and settle in to her own comfort zone—all with a golden tan that most Kamloops residents are only dreaming of right about now...

Congratulations Tessa, enjoy your new home.

When our step-fam Meaghan, John, and Robin decided it was time to sell their 1st investment property in Brocklehurst, we knew they'd be thrilled to hear that it would be a quick and desirable sale... Anyone looking for a property in Kamloops right now knows that inventory is LOW and buyers don't have an abundance of options to consider. The outcome was precisely reflective of that. Now, John and Meaghan will take a step closer to building their dream home in Juniper, and Robin has the luxury of choosing from some great projects like The Station on Tranquille and Creston House (at The Reach in TRU) for a place of his own. 

Whether family, friends, past clients, or new faces- we are always grateful to be a part of success stories like this.
