Featured Testimonial

I wish to take a moment to commend Ashley at having done an excellent job as my property manager while I lived in another province.   She helped me personally and professionally with going through an arbitration process and made it seem so simple.  She is the right choice for any landlord as she is very up–to–date with the Act and procedures, and very meticulous with detail.  At the end of the day, it is about trust and for this reason and confidence, I recommend Ashley Lutke-Schipholt at South Okanagan Rentals.
