Geen+Byrne`s real estate business has been designed and built with a specialty focus on marketing agricultural property, including estates, farms, orchards, vineyards, acreages and equestrian properties. Although residential real estate remains the predominant focus of the team, the agricultural specialty is rare and Geen+Byrne's clientele has found it universally useful. Geen+Byrne ensures that, whether clients are looking for their first home, retirement home or bustling agricultural business, they are able to offer expert service.
With this goal in mind, Geen+Byrne has sold over 300 agricultural, farm, and acreage properties since Gerald Geen was first licensed at RE/MAX Kelowna in 1992. Gerald’s experience with his own holdings as well as his lengthy term as President of the BC Fruit Growers Association paved the way.
Having grown up working the land in Ellison and firmly entrenched in the Okanagan farming community, Jerry joined RE/MAX in 2013 and took Team Geen’s presence to a whole new level. Together Gerald and Jerry continued to do what they knew best until 2009 when Gerald stepped back into a consulting role for the team.
Elya Byrne joined RE/MAX 2007 as an independent agent focusing mainly on residential and investment real estate until 2012 when Elya started to hone her skills in agricultural real estate. The Geen + Byrne team started to take shape as Jerry and Elya began to work together casually. By January 2015 it was official and Team Geen became the Geen+Byrne Real Estate Team.
Both Jerry and Gerald were raised on farms in the Kelowna area and have a special connection with farm-life and the rural lifestyle. Also born and raised in the Okanagan, Elya also comes from a family with a history in farming and real estate sales. They truly enjoy working with this speciality area of the real estate business and are passionate about their professions and the beautiful Okanagan Valley that they call home.
It’s no wonder with the success Geen+Byrne has enjoyed and the knowledge and experience they’ve earned, Jerry & Elya have become known as the local specialists in agricultural real estate. They understand the nuances and intricacies involved and like any large purchase, it is important to work with experts. Geen+Byrne can help guide you through the process and find the perfect property for your needs, whether it's an acreage, farm, vineyard, orchard, or equestrian estate.
Jerry and Elya are proud to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals with a donation from every transaction.
