Stay warm this winter

As the cold air creeps in and winter coats become a necessity being cozy is what we are all striving for. We have some great ways to add comfort and warmth to your home this Holiday Season. With the recent snowfall, it is evident that the blankets and hot chocolate have made their debut this past weekend! Here is your guide to staying warm during this cold spell.

  1. Layer up Rugs

We layer our sweaters and blankets during the cold season so why not layer up the rugs as well! Whether you have hardwood, laminate, or tile, layering up on rugs is a great way to keep your feet cozy as well as adding great texture, color, and warmth to any room.



Bring on the Blankets

Adding blankets to any room will make it feel cozy and warm. Add a wicker basket to the corner of your couch in your family room with multiple blankets and your guests instantly have a way to cozy up while they are over for a cup of hot cocoa over this Holiday Season!



Add a Reading Corner

Do you have that corner in your home that you can’t figure what to use it for? We’ve got you covered! Add a big comfy chair, a table and a lamp and voila you’ve got yourself a nice reading corner. Cozy up in the morning with a nice cup of coffee, bring over your favorite book and you may have your new favorite spot in the house!


Try Dark Colours

Accent walls are a great way to add to a room. Try dark charcoal or dark brown as an accent wall behind your bed in your room and instantly add a cozy feeling. Just make sure you use lighter fixtures such as white end tables or a light grey headboard so it doesn’t make the room feel too dark.


Start your Fire!

This is one that people tend to forget… You add all the cozy fixtures in your home such as blankets, throw pillows, and rugs but you forget that simply lighting the fire will instantly make your home feel cozy and add warmth on those cold winter days. If you don’t have a fireplace, lighting a Holiday scented candle will do the trick!

Now your home is nice and cozy for the wintertime and you are thinking of putting it on the market. Contact our knowledgeable professionals of Quincy Vrecko and Associates who are here to guide you through the ins and out of Real Estate, call Tracey Vrecko at 250-575-6448 today!

Health and Saftey is Our First Priority


The team at Quincy Vrecko and Associates is taking the Covid-19 global pandemic very seriously.  As the news changes daily, we have implemented new procedures while we continue selling real estate in Kelowna.  We want to ensure the health and safety with everyone we come in contact with directly or indirectly.

While we remain open for business during the Covid-19 crisis, we are doing so in a different way. The team at Quincy Vrecko and Associates is relying more now than ever on technology to connect with buyers and sellers.  We continue to use social media marketing platforms to market our listings and answer questions from potential buyers. Real estate in Kelowna will continue to be desired, and with the use of photos, video, virtual reality and “Live Chat” with one of our agents we can stay connected and engaged with our clients.  

We take the health and safety of our team, staff, clients and the community very seriously.  We want to reassure our clients and the public that we are taking every precaution when out showing properties and engaging the public.  We are practicing social distancing by traveling in separate vehicles and traveling in small groups.  


Extra Precautions

To prevent the spread of Covid-19 in our community, we are screening all buyers prior to viewing any homes.  Our agents are asking details of previous travel history and current health conditions to determine any risks.  Once screened we are limiting the number of homes shown. While showing properties, we are monitoring contact with any surface and using disinfectant wipes if any contact is made.  From light switches, surfaces to door handles, we will ensure all areas will be wiped clean prior to exiting the property.    

All homeowners should rest assured we are taking every precaution to ensure no cross-contamination or transfer of germs. Your safety is our utmost concern while trying to bring buyers and sellers together.  



Our Community

Even more important than selling real estate in Kelowna, we want to take the time to recognize the most vulnerable in our community. If there are any elderly or immunocompromised individuals that need support during this Covid-19 pandemic, our team is ready and willing to help.  We are taking all proper precautions when helping the public and we are diligent in making sure we are practicing social distancing.

From Quincy Vrecko, Tracey Vrecko, Christopher Ward, Charlene Volk, Steve Hyndman, and Kiana Sander, we want the community to know we are here to help. Please reach out to any of us if you are in need of help.




Thank you

Furthermore, we want to recognize the heroes beyond the frontlines of the Covid-19 crisis.  We want to thank the men and women who are restocking shelves, helping others and going the extra mile to ensure the safety and security of the community.
