Stephanie Ostash

Sales Representative

When something is right, you know it.

Originally a small town ‘tom boy’ from the Kootenay’s, Steph’s Real Estate
knowledge started very early on as her Grandfather was a builder/ developer and
her parents were always buying, renovating, renting, selling and showing her that
property is not only a place to live but, when done right, a true financial asset with
the means to take her wherever she wanted to go.

Steph's true passion for Real Estate was ignited at the age of 19 when she started
selling custom homes for the largest builder in Calgary. Young, ambitious, and full of
fire, this was the same year she started investing in a real estate portfolio of her
own, which has continued to grow and now contains a number of different property
types and in different locations.

In 2007 when the Okanagan outdoors called her back to BC, she enjoyed the new
challenge of building her business, as a mortgage broker, in a time of economic
crisis. Hard work doesn’t scare this girl and she certainly knows how to get the job

After being head hunted by the largest Media Company in the Okanagan, she quickly
became their top Marketing Consultant specializing in business growth and
customer relationships. After five amazing years and working closely with some of
the top Real Estate agents, brokerages and developers, to help develop and grow
their marketing reach, she could no longer delay the inevitable… Steph just couldn’t
give up her love affair with Real Estate and eventually made her way back.

In 2015 Stephanie was fortunate enough to be welcomed into a small boutique
brokerage which specialized in investment Real Estate and, in her first year, she
gave the top producing agent a run for his money and then took home the “World
Class” award. Stephanie truly believes that anything worth doing is worth doing
right - the first time.

After taking some time away in 2018 to fulfill a life goal of working in a Real Estate
coaching/ leadership role, Steph returned back to what she loves most… working
with her amazing clients and helping people turn Real Estate dreams into Real
Estate realities.

Steph can now be found at Canada’s Real Estate company, Royal LePage Kelowna, as
one of the founding partners of TJ & STEPH Real Estate Group. After forming an
organic partnership with TJ Dumonceaux, another high achieving and client first
minded agent, they realized that two heads are better than one and they are now
working together providing a whole new level of service to all their deserving
clients. TJ & STEPH Real Estate Group is not only the recipient of a Red Diamond
award, putting them in the top 2% of Roya LePage Kelowna, but in 2020 Steph
received the honor of being the #1 rated agent in all of Kelowna and snuck into the
top 10 in Canada with the #9 spot.

When Stephanie isn’t busy educating and helping her clients build financial freedom
through buying or selling their next property, you can attempt to find her spending
time with her amazing family, racing down the mountain on her downhill bike,
practicing up on the piano, volunteering at the Kelowna Gospel Mission or hosting a
local charity event.

She believes the greatest opportunity investing in real estate allows for… the
financial means to truly live your dreams and do what you love.

Stephanie is a true professional and passionate about her work. From start to finish of our house sale process, Stephanie was there every step of the way to guide us. Stephanie got viewers through our home and kept us updated with feedback very quickly. Our home sold quickly and we cannot thank Stephanie enough! Would not hesitate to use Stephanie in the future and highly recommend her as your agent!

Stephanie is by far the best realtor I have ever worked with. It was such a pleasure to work with her and we where so honoured to have her represent us through our search for a house. Super down to earth and easy to talk to. Very accommodating as we where out of town. She got us on to a video call with my wife, took us through the wide range of services her team has to offer. She gave us a video tour on the properties and neighbourhoods when we could not make it. She is a breath of fresh air. Truly not a realtor out for her own interests. She is not out to sell you any property available but rather a home perfectly suited for you. we could of easily bought a home in a bad neighbourhood but thank God when we finally came into the city, we where so thankful she shut down the homes that could of easily have been a buy gone wrong. Her team helped us get approved given the complexity of our case. She goes over and beyond in getting all the information needed to make you feel comfortable moving forward as a result of her experience. Stephanie you really exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much.

I have had the privilege of working alongside Stephanie for a few years, so she was the obvious choice when I began searching for my first investment property. She went to work immediately and found me exactly what I was looking for. She was patient, knowledgeable and dedicated. So much so that she found me an off the market option before anyone else could get their hands on it! She will 100% be my first call when I am ready for my next investment property.
Steph Ostash is a 12/10 in every way. She fights for you. She is patient - working with us wasn’t always easy and she simply nailed it! She is AMAZING!!!!!! We will use her for our next venture and recommend her to everybody!

Stephanie was professional and stayed the course through a challenging transaction. We had a challenging negotiation and we were able to work our way through it. Stephanie really stepped up when we needed her. We love our new property.
We had a truly great experience buying a home with Stephanie as our representative. We purchased during the pandemic, and did so from another province, and in spite of these obstacles it was a very smooth and easy experience. She used technology very effectively to make sure we had a great feel for the properties we were interested in. We wound up purchasing a home our boys and we love before we ever set foot in the property, and did so comfortably knowing we could 100% trust Stephanie's opinion. We always felt that we had someone working towards whatever was best for us and our family. It could have been a difficult acquisition with the unusual obstacles, but it was essentially seamless. Highest recommendation possible for Stephanie.
Scott Ellerington
Stephanie has been amazing to work with. When I first started looking, I didn’t expect to succeed in buying a place in this amount of time. She’s extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I am a young home owner and she made the process stress free. I felt more as though she was a friend helping me rather than an agent just looking for money. She pointed me in the direction of great people to help with finding me a mortgage as well. I will definitely be using Stephanie in the future and recommend her to everyone I know.
Rachel Gross
Stephanie was a delight to work with, knowledgeable and infinitely patient as we traversed our way through COVID required video chats and meetings and video tours Stephanie was also very gracious in allowing our friend to see the condo on our behalf, even after Stephanie had already videoed every inch of it for us I would happily work with Stephanie again and or recommend her to others
Karen Rowe
Working with Stephanie and the rest of the Vantage West team was a fantastic experience! Moving provinces with a young family is a very stressful time. Stephanie's expertise and confidence kept us calm, focused and excited through a very long journey. We highly recommend Stephanie for anyone looking for any sort of real estate need in the Okanagan.
Tracy Schooler-Demers
Stephanie is absolutely amazing! Not only is she a beautiful person inside and out, she a one of the most knowledgeable realtors I have ever worked with. She made dreams become reality and I can’t thank her enough!
Barb Henderson
In a world full of hurdles, especially during this pandemic, Stephanie dedicated herself to the challenge and simplified the process. Her professionalism and knowledge surpassed other realtors I have dealt with, and she was able to answer any and all of my questions. Without any disappointment, I would highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying property in the future.
