General Inquiry


We have bought and sold approximately 20 homes but have never been treated as well by any other realtor as we were dealing with Amy Zimmer. It started with a chance meeting at the Orchard Center Mall Royal LePage Kiosk in Kelowna. We made general inquiries and advised Amy we were not ready to purchase and had a house to sell. This meeting started a relationship that carried on until we were in a position to purchase. Amy found the perfect home to suit all our needs and in a great location. Amy became very involved in helping us complete the sale of our home in Prince George and I would say was instrumental in making sure our selling realtor remained motivated. We would highly recommend Amy to anyone considering buying or selling a home in the Central Okanagan area.

Jack and Lynda

Our family has nothing but wonderful things to say about Gayle. She went way over and above what was expected of a realtor. She was a delight to work with and made what can be a very stressful process easy and even fun! She was able to quickly identify the unique character that we were looking for in a home and worked hard to find us our dream house! She is proactive, incredibly hardworking, knowledgeable and a true advocate for her clients. She was flexible and available whenever we needed her. You couldn’t find a better realtor and we recommend her to everyone!

Mike & Lauren Macaulay

Amy Zimmer exceeded our expectations: Her preparation every time she showed us a property, the research she conducted, her patience through the lengthy search process, and her genuine interest in our lives led us to find our perfect home. Amy worked very hard for us and we highly recommend her services.

Bjorn Pohland

Gayle helped us find our new home, she knows the Okanagan so well and was able to give us lots of guidance. She genuinely cares about her clients. I would highly recommend her services.

James & Alison McCormick

We’d like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for the excellent service you provided us through entire buying process. Buying property for people with very little experience is extremely stressful. Our situation was even worse because we didn’t live in Kelowna and almost everything had to be done remotely. Whatever question, advice or intervention we asked, you answered right away. Starting from drafting the contract to closing transaction you were 100% dedicated to our cause. We liked your response to every problem we had – “leave it to me”. Always reassuring and taking as much of the burden of our shoulders as possible. We will certainly recommend your services to people that we know.

Jadwiga and Jerzy Jankowski

We recently moved to Lake Country and had the pleasure of working with Gayle Hunter. She truly excels at her job. Not only was she exceptionally personable, but she repeatedly went above and beyond to make our house shopping experience a success. We travelled up from the LMD and had one weekend to house shop. Gayle was very flexible and accommodated our request to have 20 viewings within the 24 hour window. She was always professional, prompt and knowledgeable. We highly recommend her!

Mike and Ange

Amy, Ted and I cannot thank you enough for your help in purchasing our new home in West Kelowna. Your professional and friendly attitude made what could have been a stressful experience a very pleasant one. The welcome to our new home was a very nice surprise as well. We have bought and sold properties in the past but have never encountered an agent who was so quick to respond to our questions and any requests that we had as well as providing information on moving to West Kelowna. We would highly recommend your expertise to anyone considering buying a home in Kelowna.

Ted and Wendy Parent

Gayle was by far the best REALTOR we have ever dealt with. Extremely knowledgeable and always had time for any small little questions we may have had. Attention to detail with anything we needed help with. Sold our home very quickly and went well out of her way for my husband and I. There is no question that Gayle is the best REALTOR you could ask for. Thank you Gayle for all your positive support and for selling our home.

Todd and Tracey

Amy was wonderful to work with finding my new home. She’s great at making things happen even when I was out of the city! I’d recommend her to anyone who’s looking for property.

Dawne Coyston

Some people are blessed to find their calling, Gayle Hunter’s calling is real estate. My family recently moved across country from Ontario to the beautiful city of Kelowna. Gayle went above and beyond to find my family our perfect fit dream home. She provided round the clock accessibility (which helped with our time difference), as well as providing multitudes of homes to choose from to fit my extended family requirements. Gayle’s knowledge of the real estate market is second to none. Couple that with her flare, drive and obvious love for what she does, and you have a guaranteed winner. I would recommend anyone looking for the right home to contact Gayle Hunter. I promise you will not be disappointed.


I am more than happy to recommend Amy Zimmer highly as a realtor. She was enthusiastic and personable at all times and a pleasure to work with. My property was advertised extensively, and she also enlisted the help of a ‘stager’ to enhance the best aspects of my home. She took a genuine interest in my property, and she worked hard, conscientiously and efficiently towards ensuring a successful and early completion, resulting in my home being sold within 13 days of listing. At all times she was professional, encouraging and ‘up-beat.’ I consider myself fortunate to have chosen her! Thank you so much, Amy!

Marilyn Patik

Gayle was recommended to us by friends and we couldn’t be happier with the referral. Gayle was an absolute pleasure to deal with in the purchase of our home in Kelowna. Not being from the area, we needed someone who could help us find the right neighbourhood for us. Gayle listened to our wants and needs and sent us the appropriate listings. When it came time to look at houses, the appointments were well set up and her open and honest feedback was appreciated. We ended up buying our dream house in our dream location. The after-sale support was just as important, helping us deal with the vendor. We would highly recommend Gayle and would use her services again without hesitation.

John & Laurel Underhill

First, Amy is a superb, professional Realtor. We purchased our apt condo in 2008 then extensively renovated the corner unit which had a wonderful lake view. Subsequently, sales in the complex had a history of low selling prices. We finally decided to bite the bullet and approached several Realtors. None would take the listing at our price except Amy. Several realtors absolutely refused the listing if you can believe that. The other realtors used the comparables which were really not relevant to our corner unit, extensive renos, all new high-end appliances and view. Amy said we had a good price for the quality and to go for it. Well, she was right. We had a full price offer within ten days. She broke the pattern of low sales prices. Evidence of her accomplishment is that she sold three more residences in the complex exceeding the seller’s expectations. Immediately answered all phone calls and queries. Amazing communicator. Amy also has a fantastic support team to assist with the sale. Amy is a go-getter, willing to take on an endeavour to your advantage. You are not gambling with Amy, you are winning. Unequivocally, highly recommend Amy. Exceptional person and Realtor.

Brian Batter

Well, what can we say about Gayle. We started looking for a new house as we moved from Ontario. From the moment we started speaking to her, she was always attentive to our needs and always found a moment to re-assure us in our hunt. We found the perfect house for our family and when taking possession came upon a couple of hiccups and frustrations that Gayle handled with the utmost professionalism and empathy for us. She went out of her way to ensure that our transition into our new home was the best experience it could be, even weeks after taking possession. We would highly recommend Gayle to anyone looking for an agent with a caring attitude and dedicated persistence to her clients. Thank you Gayle for all you have done for us!

Matt Jackson

Amy was accommodating of all our first time home buyer questions. If she didn’t have the answer herself she was quick to seek out the right person to get the answers we needed. Amy was always available when making appointments to view properties. She really put in extra effort to ensure we saw the properties we wanted to see at a time that worked with our schedule. This was very much appreciated! She really put in the time to understand what we were looking for and suggested properties that met our needs. Amy brought just the right mix of professionalism, humour, and empathy to help us make an informed choice. It was a pleasure working with Amy and we are very grateful for her help in finding our first home! As an added bonus…her little dog is very cute:)

Nari Oh

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Thank you Gayle for going out of your way to help us find a place in Kelowna. It was comforting knowing that you were there to answer questions and follow through on stuff that I couldn’t do being so far away. We love our new place!

Susanne Currie

We are beyond impressed with Amy’s attention to detail and professionalism. Amy’s knowledge of the Okanagan real estate market is exceptional. She is extraordinarily helpful and very pleasant to work with. Amy’s work ethic is incredible. She is always available for questions and goes the extra mile to make sure her client’s needs are met. We were very impressed with Amy’s negotiation ability and vast experience in real estate. We would highly recommend Amy Zimmer.

Michelle Schlosser Eng

Gayle was recommended to me by parents and I wouldn’t think twice about recommending her to others! As a first time home-buyer Gayle went above and beyond to help find my perfect first home. She made the process so easy for me and was constantly available anytime I needed her – day or night, weekend, morning or evening. Gayle was there to reassure me every step of the way. I would highly recommend Gayle for all your realtor needs!

Emma Orchard

Thank you Amy for a wonderful experience helping me sell the biggest asset one can has in this world. I praise you for your hard work and always going the extra mile, always smiling and providing your honest opinion and support throughout the sale. When the time comes to return to the market and purchase a house I look forward to being on the opposite side of the deal in purchasing a house with Amy’s assistance knowing full well the experience will be just as excellent as selling the house. Thanks again Amy!

Chris Pedersen

Gayle has been involved with 2 of our home purchases, she was the listing agent on our first property and purchasing agent on the other . We believe that Gayle does her very best for her clients as she treated us professionally and we felt that she was going to bat for us during negotiations. Gayle delivered a price for us that I don’t think any other agent could have, as she researches the property and has a thorough understanding of the market. We would most definitely recommend Gayle to our friends and family and would purchase with her again.

Tracey Johnson

Nine months ago we were looking for a condo in Kelowna that we could call home. As we were from out of province we had just a week’s vacation to try and find something. I found Amy and even though we hadn’t met in person yet, she worked with us ahead of time so that when we arrived we could hit the ground running with several viewings. We didn’t realize that the condo market in Kelowna was already feeling the effects of the crazy housing markets in Victoria and Vancouver and going through its own crazy patch! It was a seller’s market for sure, with properties having multiple offers, many being snatched up by cash buyers, and some without even being seen! We felt so disheartened but Amy pressed on and encouraged us to do so, so we extended our trip by a few days. Unbeknown to us, Amy was working incredibly hard behind the scenes, marketing and networking and even knocking on doors…….She found us a great place, in one of our favourite complexes, that ticked just about all our boxes. We are truly grateful for her perseverance, dedication and kindness. She brought a real personal touch to the whole process and made it enjoyable despite the challenges we were experiencing. Thank you so much, Amy!

Moireen & Alan

Gayle sets the bar for what a professional realtor should be! She knocked it out of the park with the very first condo she showed me and presented an acceptable offer for less than asking. She loves what she does and it shows!

Jenn White

Amy has been a pleasure to work with in this challenging Kelowna real estate market and is a Realtor who really has your back. We moved to Kelowna in late August looking for a house to buy in the spring. Amy was incredibly supportive, patient, and kind throughout the process, and she also made some excellent recommendations during every step of the process, from neighbourhoods to look in, negotiating, comparables in the market, and more. She is also passionate about what she does and works very hard for her clients. She put out a flyer for us in a neighbourhood we wanted to call home and even offered to go knocking on doors. She offered us several homes targeted to our needs during our long search and we actually ended up buying in a neighbourhood she suggested. I also wanted to highlight just how amazingly kind and patient Amy is. We looked at well over fifty properties with Amy over the course of six months, and not once did she show impatience with us or react to my husband’s challenging personality in this heated market when he showed skepticism at the high Kelowna prices. Instead, she would smile and offer us her quiet, confident reassurance that we’d find our home and stay within our budget. And we did. Thanks to Amy! She stayed by our side and helped us navigate every turn. I highly recommend her. She will do you well if you are buying or selling. Thanks, Amy for your perseverance, hard work, and grace under fire.

Isabella Koenig

Gayle was recommended to us through a family member. We had never a used a Realtor before and were very apprehensive from listening to stories of other people that had sold homes. Gayle immediately put us at ease and worked extremely hard to sell our home. She was available to us anytime we needed her to answer any question or problem we had. She is the consummate professional and truly enjoys what she does. We highly recommend her whether you are buying or selling a home.

Brad Flechl

You couldn¹t ask for a better agent. Amy is very professional, listens to what type of home you are looking for, the area and will give you her experience in the real estate business. She keeps you informed, up-to-date on her progress and helps you through all the details till completion relieving you of all the stress. Thank you so much for making it a smooth transition and a joy to work with you.

Eleanor & Michael

We met Gayle at one of her Kelowna listings and were immediately impressed with her expertise. We decided on the spot that she would represent us in our search for our perfect home. When our home in Victoria sold there was nothing on the market in Kelowna that ‘ticked all the boxes’. We were under a great deal of pressure to purchase a home as we certainly did not want to rent and move twice. Gayle took it upon herself and made it her mission to find our home. She used her many contacts and a lot of door knocking and thrilled us with the perfect place. We have since moved in and couldn’t be happier. Gayle always made herself available to answer any questions throughout the process and was more than happy to help in any way. Gayle is the consummate professional and we are delighted to recommend her.

Karen Urquhart

Amy Zimmer sold our home a few years ago and most recently our condo. Amy has an incredible work ethic, she is honest, ethical, knowledgeable, patient, and kind. I feel Amy genuinely cares about her clients and always goes the extra mile. If you are thinking of buying or selling a home I recommend meeting with Amy, she will work tirelessly on your behalf. I know there are many good realtors in Kelowna but I don’t see how anyone can top Amy.

Donna Garbelya

We utilized Gayle’s services to purchase a property in Kelowna. She came highly recommended from a friend of ours. We found Gayle to be extremely professional in her approach to real estate. Nothing was a problem and she was very obliging to our needs. She has a friendly and outgoing persona which made us feel at ease through the whole process. We highly recommend her as a real estate agent.

Dean Sharrock

Recently, Amy was our realtor for both the purchase and sale of properties in West Kelowna. She worked incredibly hard to sell our home in a competitive market, and her professionalism was always on display. She listens carefully to her clients and tries to select properties that match important tastes and preferences. In the short time our home was for sale, she held numerous Open Houses, and many people commented on the activity at our house. She works with integrity and respect of her clients. We were indeed very fortunate to have Amy represent us, and highly recommend her to people looking for a realtor who is determined and dedicated. Thanks again Amy!!


Gayle is highly knowledgeable in her field as a realtor. Very trustworthy and goes above and beyond for her clients. She will exceed all your realtor needs and we are truly happy to have used her services when we purchased our home in the Kelowna area. We highly recommend Gayle and look forward to using her again when we buy our lakefront home.

Teri Rebagliati

I cannot say enough good things about Amy. My Son recommended Amy to me. Amy worked hard to help them find their first home. I have been dealing with Amy since January, there were many delays I faced, Amy stuck with me showing properties virtually, explain the different ares in Kelowna. Finally in early March we were able to meet. Amy helped me through the listings and showings. She is a very professional, knowledgeable agent. She worked tirelessly to help close the sale.

Jim Deluca

I don’t even know where to begin when it comes to Gayle Hunter! She is the most devoted, caring, hard working realtor I have ever worked with. Having to sell my beloved home from afar during these challenging times seemed like a huge endeavour. I put my trust in Gayle’s hands and she did not disappoint. She made this transaction and all it’s challenges seem manageable as she always had things under control. She would somehow handle all the pressure of the process so it never felt heavy or unbearable to me. She would always put my mind at ease and made this situation the smoothest it could be. I would 100% recommend Gayle for all your realty needs. Gayle, I will forever be thankful for all you’ve done for me. You definitely stand behind your “I love what I do and the people I do it for”.

Genevieve Levesque

We have just relocated to Kelowna from Vancouver Island and purchased a condo. We were referred to Amy and what a pleasure she was to work with! From day one meeting her through telephone conversation, we were impressed with her. She listens to her clients and and ensures she has a total understanding of what our needs were. She constantly kept us updated and in the know of properties available. Her exceptional knowledgeable of the real estate market, was a great asset in assisting us in making our decision. We came to Kelowna on a weekend. Through constant communication, Amy had a ton of properties all set up to look at! She has an amazing work ethic which really shone through, along with high integrity,understanding our needs and making it all come together for us. She continually kept us up to date and informed of all transactions and progress along the way. She is most willing to help in any way she can and going above and beyond in keeping the customer in mind! She has incredible patience, always smiling, and a great sense of humour, which is an asset during stressful time of purchasing. We highly recommend working with Amy as she goes above and beyond, is very detailed and just so great to work with from the beginning to final sale. Thanks a million Amy for all your hard work! You are a gem!

Earl and Dianne

Gayle was incredibly helpful, answering any and all of our questions and working with us to find the perfect place! She was able to quickly figure out what we were looking for and make fantastic suggestions about neighbourhoods and specific houses! Thanks!

John Aitken

We met Amy at an open house in 2019. We seemed to “click” right away. When we were ready to make the move to Kelowna, we called Amy. She is a wonderful person as well as a very good realtor. What makes a great realtor? Someone who listens! Amy did not disappoint. Since we are 2/3’s empty nesters, we did not know what we wanted. Downsize? Condo? Townhome? Trailer? Or single family home? With rental income? So she showed us a bit of everything and was very patient! It paid off. We found our beautiful new home. We were so pleased with Amy’s professionalism, that we have asked her to be our real estate agent for our commercial venture. Thank you Amy, you are awesome!

Gregory & Karina Fischer

We recently had the pleasure of working with Gayle not only with listing our home but my mother in law used her as well. I have to tell you it was a great experience and we couldn’t be happier with using Gayle. You hear horror stories about selling homes and pushy relators that just want to make the big buck. Not with Gayle. She truly has a passion for Real Estate and loves what she does. You can see how happy she is doing her job. She takes the time to listen to you and makes sure you are comfortable with everything along the way. I highly recommend using Gayle as your Realtor. She defines the word Excellence. Rena, Grace and myself couldn’t be happier for all of her success. Cheers to 2021 Gayle and to those who are lucky to get you as their realtor.

Steve and Rena Dalgleish

Amy was referred by friends and we were very happy to have her help us sell our home, and find a suitable new one. She was wonderful – very patient, knowledgeable, supportive and helpful. She went “above and beyond” and did many extras for us – we sincerely appreciated all that she did in making the purchase and sale happen, and very grateful for her kindness and generosity.

Dave and Glenda

Gayle was by far the best realtor and person for the job anyone could ask for. Listened always to our concerns. Always was attentive and honestly never missed a phone call when we tried to reach her. So on top of everything needed. There is no one we would rather recommend. If I need to buy or sell a home again there is no question who I would call. Don’t waste your time trying to find a realtor Gayle is your best choice by far.

Todd and Peerless

We have sold 3 properties and purchased 1 with Amy. We have yet to meet another realtor who is as hard-working and dedicated to her clients as Amy is. She is a great listener and will always put her client’s needs first. She is extremely knowledgeable in her industry and was always there whenever we needed her with great advice. Amy made the negotiating process easy while trying to get the best possible results for us. I would absolutely recommend Amy to anyone looking for a competent, experienced, reliable and professional realtor in Kelowna!

Carrie McGillivary and Mark Goldstone

It was an absolute pleasure working with Amy. We were referred to her and couldn’t be happier with the outcome. She made the process of buying and selling our home easy and also maximized value!

Sarah and Kevin Abel

We’ve had the pleasure to work with Gayle in different capacities since 2011. Gayle is an amazing person who helped us secure our first house in Kelowna. She will guide you and advocates on your behalf as much as she can. Thanks Gayle!

Tom and Anita Veal

A few years ago I was shopping for a condo. I went to an Open House which Amy was hosting. I was impressed with the way she presented the property. Her style was informal, relaxed, and super informative. I ended up buying a different condo, not the one she was selling, but she left an impression on me so I saved her card.Three years later I found myself working in Vancouver full time, so I had to sell my Kelowna home. I dug out Amy’s card and gave her a call. Best move I ever made. She came over to view the place. The more we chatted, and the more questions I threw at her, the more her vast experience shined through.Once I decided to hire Amy as my Realtor, she got the ball rolling, fast. What a partner! She gave me great simple advice of what to do to showcase my advantages (mostly a matter of removing some excess furniture and art to highlight the spaciousness.) She proposed a listing price that was actually a little higher than I expected. I doubted we would get that amount, but my GF later said to me, Let Amy list it at that price and see what she can do.Wow. Eight days later we got the right offer, and took it. I never thought this process could be so easy. Thanks Amy!

Andrew and Deedee

Want a dream home in the ideal neighbourhood, look no further than Gayle Hunter. We were moving from several provinces away, and with limited time and availability, Gail delivered beyond our expectations. From the start, it was apparent we could rely on her experience, her ability to quickly understand our preferences and her expertise in the local housing market. To our delight, she identified several terrific choices and made the perfect find possible. Not only for us, but Gayle also found the optimal choice for our daughter’s family!

Dave and Tammy Mooney

We have had the pleasure of having Amy Zimmer as our realtor in our most recent housing purchase and could not have been happier with the service she provided. Amy is, without doubt, one of the nicest people we have met, always so diligent, ethical and professional in the discharge of her duties as an agent, going above and beyond the call of duty for us, never insistent, ever so patient, and just an all-round wonderful individual with outstanding integrity. We could not have asked for a better realtor and have no hesitation recommending her to anyone looking for a trustworthy, patient and dedicated realtor to serve their housing purchase or sales needs. Thank you so much Amy! You have made us your client and friend for life!

Lenny and Angie

As a first time homebuyer and someone who needed to move to the Kelowna area in a short time frame for a new job, I was definitely feeling a little anxious … based on a recommendation I decided to give Gayle a call. I called Gayle on a Wednesday with a specific example of the condo I was looking for, I had an accepted offer on that very same condo by Friday at 7pm. I put my trust in Gayle as I was not even able to see the condo in person, she delivered above and beyond on every level. I will definitely be recommending Gayle to anyone else looking to sell or purchase in the Kelowna area!

Leigh Kinakin

Amy was referred to us by our Friends and Neighbour. What a great referral to Amy. Amy is absolutely a very nice, kind and personable Lady. She is meticulous, organized, a great planner, has excellent work ethics, is extremely knowledgeable and above all, is totally dedicated and committed to her Clients. My wife and I are so very pleased to have Amy as our Realtor and we highly recommend her as your Realtor of choice. Thank you ever so much Amy for being there for us.

Bill and Irene

Nik was a fabulous realtor! Not only did he listen to our needs, but he truly cares. He is quick to respond and set up showings. He helped us get into our perfect townhouse in this crazy market by getting me in to see it on my lunch break the day after our home was listed. When it's time to move up, I will undoubtedly go back to Nik for help. If you're looking for a realtor who won't let you down - go with Nik!

Nicole Harris

Dave and I can’t thank Gayle enough for selling our beautiful home. We have been here for over forty years, so we have a lot of emotions with it. Day or night I called Gayle with any concerns or fears I might of had with the next phase of our life, she was kind, caring, understanding and most importantly my therapist!! We absolutely love her and I don’t think we could of done it without her. As our move out date fast approaches we will laugh and cry and Gayle will be right beside us for the ride!! Thank you Thank you Gayle Hunter!! What a joy to work with you!!

Dave and Lesley Clark

Just wanted to let you know Gayle that I sooo appreciated all your hard working professionalism as well as your kindness, honesty and understanding. You made the sale of my house as easy as possible with little to no hassle or work on my part. Thank you! Anyone would be extremely happy and grateful to have you in their corner!! What a gem!

Darryl Reid

I just wanted to thank you for your kind gift and for all your help in finding us the perfect home! You made the process simple and easy to understand for us and we appreciated your patience and expertise. Your insight was extremely valuable to us and I don’t think we could have done this without you. If any of our friends or family are ever in need of an agent, we will be sure to send them your way. Thank you again for everything!
