Welcome to RE/MAX Realty Solutions

Osoyoos is located in the southern most region of British Columbia's Okanagan Valley. This 1995 "Communities in Bloom" award winner is at the crossroads of two of BC's main highways, Hwy. 97 and Hwy. 3. Hwy. 97 runs north to Alaska and South to Mexico. Hwy 3 runs west to Vancouver and east to the Alberta Border. Only 5 minutes from the Canada/U.S. Border, Osoyoos, is strategically located for exporters. The Town's population is 4,600 with approximately 2,200 in the surrounding area.

Osoyoos comes from the Native American name "Soo-yoos" - a narrow point where two lakes come together. Osoyoos is home to Canada's only "Arid Desert" and is surrounded by lush fruit trees and towering mountains. It's breath taking beauty, warm winters and hot summers make Osoyoos an ideal vacation spot any time of the year.

A full range of services and amenities are available in the community. There are 2 large grocery stores, a drug store, over 100 merchants and service businesses, 2 medical offices, schools, a public recreation facility, ice arena, curling rink, library and a RCMP detachment. Hospital services are available in Oliver, less than 20 minutes away. The Kettle Valley Railroad Trail, touring local wineries, swinging the clubs on one of our local golf courses or simply a day in the sun at one of the many beaches, are just some of the things that you can see and do here.

Lake Osoyoos is the focal point of the town and extends along the valley 16km north and south into the USA. Although boaters have free access to the USA side of the lake, permission from US Customs must be obtained prior to crossing the Border by boat. The lake has an average summer temperature of 24°C (70°F) and rarely freezes over in the winter. Numerous public beaches and parks are ideal for children and water skiers as they are shallow and sandy along the shore. There are several boat launches and 3 marinas for those who wish to rent power boats, sea-doos, windsurfers or a paddle boat.
