Sean Smith, Vernon REALTOR® - Salt Fowler
Cell / Text: 236-599-9007
Born in Vancouver, Sean’s family travelled around the world for the first few years of his life, living as far away as Indonesia, and eventually settled back home in Canada in “nearby” Calgary. Growing up in Calgary most of his long weekends and holidays were spent in the Okanagan and when the opportunity came knocking, he rushed over the border.
As a young man, Sean knew he was meant to be working with people. Chatting up everyone he met, he has a knack for getting to know everyone he talks to and finding out what they need and how he can help.
His first official sales job was at 18 as a door-to-door salesperson, but un-officially it was when he spent his spare time in high school talking to local businesses about sponsoring his racing. In the summer of 2012 Sean raced in Canadian Superbike at 5 events across Canada as a representative of Honda Canada thanks to a deal which started with him walking into the local Honda dealership knowing the worst they could do is say no. The competitive nature of the sport, as well as the tenacity of chasing sponsorship leads to be able to afford each race has translated into his professional career.
Finally in 2017 opportunity would come knocking. Sean and his father were involved early with Area 27 and when construction was completed in 2017 Sean had the chance to work, and race for local motorcycle shop Redline Cycle. Spending most of his spare time at Area 27 he chased his professional racing dream and spent the rest exploring everywhere from Vernon to Osoyoos. Life would catch up and cut the dream short, but in that time, he was able to see and appreciate plenty of what the Okanagan has to offer. Again, he looked for his chance to make the Okanagan home.
In 2020 Sean was able to make the move permanent. As Covid changed how we live and work, Sean saw the potential in the Okanagan and knew his experience in customer service and contract negotiation would translate tremendously to a career in Real Estate. His experience has taught him how to explore the needs of each person he helps, and how to help them get the best deal when we find it.
