Have a great weekend!


Early this month our team at the Vrecko Real Estate Group hosted a client cocktail party to celebrate its 10th anniversary and show appreciation for our amazing clients. The warm weather of the Okanagan complimented the poolside party while it was a great afternoon of food, drinks, and networking. 

The Vreckos served about 100 guests an array of canapes ranging from shrimp ceviche tostada to chicken sliders with an Asian Twist. The charcuterie, cupcakes, and cookies were a wonderful addition to the food. The drink menu was equally impressive with colorful cocktails named to fit the occasion of the client cocktail party. 

Spending time with our valued clients is important to the team to Quincy & Tracey Vrecko and the whole team at Vrecko Real Estate Group. We appreciate everyone who joined us on our 10th anniversary to celebrate our wonderful clients.

It was wonderful to spend time with everyone (face-to-face) and enjoy the beautiful Okanagan Summer.

While we were traveling through the Upper Mission on the weekend, we couldn’t help but stare at some of the homes with the BEST home curb appeal. We just had to share some of the ideas with you! If you are lacking an eye-catching exterior for your home, we’ve got you covered!

Paint your Front Door

Yellow and blue door on brick house

Painting your front door is a quick and straightforward way to add to the home curb appeal, and if done right it can be completed on the weekend! We recommend a bold color to stand out from the rest of the house. Painting your front door is fun and unique, if your house is a grey or brown this is a fast way to add a signature touch to your home to prevent it from blending into the rest of the neighborhood

Upgrade your House Number

Modern house numbers

A simple upgrade to your house number will do more than you think! You can quickly modernize your home and there are so many different ways you can upgrade your house number. Whether you go to the store and buy some new numbers or you make your own, it is guaranteed to increase your home’s curb appeal.

Be creative with your mailbox

Doing something creative with your mailbox is a great way to add some personality to your home. Decorating your mailbox is a very fun project that will add curb appeal and function to any home. When painting your mailbox you can go as crazy as you want! You can even let your kids get creative and they can hang their artwork in front of your home. 

Get a new doorknob

Getting new doors nobs is a quick and cheap way to instantly add a modern look to your home. There is a wide range of styles and prices there is a doorknob for everyone. It does not seem like a big change but success in the details!

Add some greenery 

Adding some lush greenery to the front of your home will help add home curb appeal as well as make your home look healthy and maintained. All of the most attractive homes have an arrangement of plants out front. Greenery makes the home feel welcoming and cozy without even stepping inside.



Tracy at Quincy Vrecko and Associates is happy to give a free home curb appeal advice. Whether it be because you are selling your home or just want a little update.
