Although residential real estate remains a highly predominant part of the business, the agricultural specialty is extremely rare and Geen+Byrne's clientele has found it universally useful.
Geen+Byrne ensures, that whether their clients are looking for their first home, retirement home, or bustling agricultural business, Geen+Byrne is able to offer expert service coupled with trusted expertise!
Geen+Byrne has sold hundreds of agricultural, farm, and acreage properties over the years. Jerry Geen and Elya Byrne are considered two of the industries leading agricultural Realtors known for a consistent inventory of agricultural listings as well as the expertise to help clients sell and purchase them.
Born and raised in the Okanagan, both Jerry and Elya come Okanagan farming families and have the knowledge of the valley you can depend on. Jerry was actually raised on a large orchard operation and benefits from an intimate knowledge of the trade while Elya currently has her own orchard.
Always a valuable member of our team, albeit on a consulting basis now, our founder Gerald Geen an orchardist as well as past president of the BC Fruit Growers Association helped pave the way firmly entrenching the previous Team Geen into the local agricultural industry. When Gerald retired Jerry did on his own for years until 2011 when Jerry and Elya began working together. As of January 2015 the new team was launched and has been a great success.
Today the Geen + Byrne Real Estate Team continues to grow their agricultural specialty by ensuring their clients are well protected, advised and secured in their agricultural ventures.
