About Taras Kinash


I believe my family and I live in the most beautiful part of the world, the South Okanagan, BC, Canada. Everyday we wake up feeling blessed to live in a community of people who genuinely love where they live as much as we do. With incredible weather in the fall, spring and summer, and the serene landscapes of the Okanagan Valley year round, there is no better place to call home. Did I forget to mention we live in Wine Country… delicious!

I moved to the South Okanagan from Vancouver at the beginning of 2013. I had enjoyed what the South Okanagan had to offer part-time in 2012, and I made the decision to move permanently with the intent of pursuing love and happiness. My dreams were soon realized after finding my soulmate and wife, Zara, and shortly after, having our daughter Lilya Karma. 4 years later the family is complete with the arrival of baby Luka Cayo.

It feels so rewarding to know that my family and I grow and make our memories in the beautiful South Okanagan. We have so far made the most treasured friends and we look forward to making many more.

For existing Penticton residents, I can not wait to meet you! For those of you interested in moving to Penticton and the South Okanagan region, please do not hesitate... I promise it will be worth it. Don’t hesitate to contact me anytime and please be sure to review my Testimonials.

We had an amazing experience working with Taras, and cannot recommend him highly enough. Not only did he sell our current home in less than a week, but he helped us find the perfect new house for our family for an amazing price. We were nervous about the whole process, but with Taras's calm, positive attitude and his extensive knowledge of the real estate market, we felt confident and take... Read more

Moving to the Okanagan has been a dream of ours for a long time. In June of 2018 we finally decided to stop dreaming and make it happen. But moving from the prairies of Saskatchewan into the Okanagan Valley was a culture shock to say the least. Taras was more than helpful. We wrestled with so many factors from price, age of home, to land size. But Taras kept us on track. Taras helped us t... Read more

I selected Taras as a realtor based on the number of positive reviews I read online. I was moving to Penticton from another province on short notice, so I needed a realtor whose opinion I could count on since I did not have a lot of time to research the area. I had a few places in mind when I met with Taras, and he was very open to giving honest feedback about the places I selected. It was at that... Read more

Taras was recommended to us by a friend and it became evident pretty quickly why... He knows Penticton and the market there like the back of his hand. He toured us around town, took his time, showed us everything that matched our criteria, and was able to give us the background on each area, along with the pros and cons of each place. He was patient with us, and so incredibly helpful along the way... Read more

We had long planned to make a start in a new spot in the Okanagan, but the challenge of uprooting from friends and family in Vancouver, and commencing our careers here held us back for years. We even had family travel out from back east to join us for our wedding in Penticton in 2006, simply to expose them to the gorgeous interior of BC. Years after, with children in tow, we finally found the mean... Read more
