From a young age of 14 years old, Steve knew that Real Estate was the pathway of his future career. With a natural keen eye for homes & Real Estate, and with the invaluable advice and encouragement from his Pake (Grandfather), Steve’s dream of achieving his career goal became a reality at the young age of 23. The big world of Real Estate was at his doorstep and Steve quickly became a success. Within his second year, Steve placed in the top 15 of his Edmonton office of 87 Agents. Within 4 years, Steve was running a successful team in Leduc Alberta AND placed several times in the top 5 teams annually in the Greater Edmonton Area. Part of Steve’s success comes from his deep compassion and interest in other people and their needs. A great listener and extremely enthusiastic about getting to know others.
In 2015, Steve was able to follow his second dream, which was to raise his family in the beautiful Okanagan! Many summer holidays with his family in the Okanagan made him realize it was the lifestyle he wanted! Heidi Lussi, RE/MAX Vernon, gave him the incredible opportunity to work on her team. Heidi’s team had planted their roots in Vernon for over 27 years and with the ultimate goal of retirement and seeing that Steve had the same values as herself, they worked closely together so that Steve could take over the reins. After 30 years in Real Estate, in 2020, Heidi passed the lead to a confident and “ready” Steve Wikkerink!
