Few people have as much in-depth knowledge about investment properties in the Okanagan Region as AJ Hazzi. After becoming a Realtor® in 2002, AJ Hazzi noticed a gap in the market and in 2008 he founded Vantage West Realty, a boutique firm dedicated to serving the specific needs of real estate investors. Since then, his brokerage has grown to 28 agents and support staff. From finding and pre-analyzing investment properties to negotiating the purchase and property management after the sale, AJ’s relationship with his clients is more like that of a consultant than a salesperson.
AJ is head of the Real Estate Investment Network (REIN) Kelowna chapter and a certified Real Estate Investment Adviser™. As an author, speaker and real estate coach, he practises what he preaches. His extensive real estate portfolio includes single and multi-family homes, development property, resort units and commercial buildings. In addition to being a Realtor®, AJ is also a licensed broker, property manager and new home builder.
In 2015 AJ was honoured to receive the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce Young Entrepreneur of the Year award. He enjoys giving back to the community through his support of the Gospel Mission, ‘Sell a Home, Save a Child’ and is a proud member of 100 Men Who Give A Damn.
