COVID-19 has certainly disrupted our lives in many ways and will continue to do so throughout 2021. However, for the EPIC team, 2020 will be marked by the sudden passing of Mark West, EPIC’s founder, Managing Broker, and more importantly, beloved husband, brother and dear friend. Leah, Mark’s wife and Blu, their three-year-old son are beyond devastated. On their behalf, I’d like to thank the friends, clients and industry colleagues who mourned alongside them and offered assistance in numerous forms and ways.
Personally, I have known Mark for over two decades. I considered him a brother first and a business partner second. Mark and I had been deep into planning the next three to five years to ensure his transition into selectively being a developer while spending ample time with his family. Since that fateful Saturday in early June and despite the weight of grief, Leah and both the team at EPIC and Fifth Avenue Real Estate Marketing Limited (Fifth Avenue) have committed ourselves to honouring his legacy and have doubled down on pursuing his vision.
Mark’s wealth of knowledge and insight into the Kelowna real estate market were always presented to partners and clients with enthusiasm. With that being said, Mark’s judgment and feedback tended to be verbal. Given the growth in the Kelowna market and accelerating interest and demand from Metro Vancouver and outside the province, the need for more information that supplements the tacit is apparent. In response, our team has partnered with a local firm, Knew Realty Research Incorporated (Knew). Knew is a collective partner at the forefront of innovation when it comes to understanding and reporting the current status and upcoming trends in communities and neighbourhoods across the province. Together, we dedicated considerable time and resources gathering facts, visiting projects, analyzing data and forming insights and opinions on “what is” and “what will be” with respect to the multifamily real estate market in Greater Kelowna. Now it is time to share.
