Meet Lee Mowry
Lee started his early working career at the age of 16 in the retail industry for the Overwaitea Food Group. He spent the next 10 years working through the ranks and into a management position. Those early years taught Lee that his hard work, excellent service and honesty would benefit both his customers and peers and would set him up for a new chapter in his career.
Because he thrives on change, Lee set his sights on the real estate industry and it's evolving market trends and technology. Lee completed the real estate sales representative course at UBC's Sauder School of Business in June of 2007 where he enjoyed six lucrative years selling real estate in a tough post recession market. Fast track to September 2013 where Lee opened his own brokerage, Horizon West Realty, where he used his experience, management and leadership skills to run a successful office with a primary focus on results & clientele satisfaction. Lee feels that his growth through the challenging downturn required enthusiasm and creativity to be successful, and resulted in market experience that covered a broad range of buying and selling opportunities.
Lee was born and raised here in Princeton. He knows the town, the surrounding geography, and the hidden gems of the Similkameen valley. The area is delightfully free of crowds, rich in natural wonders and local flavours. Lee believes that this creates a higher quality of life. He prides himself on thinking outside the box and looks forward to making your Real Estate transaction a pleasant and stress free experience.
Princeton life is all about the outdoors. Some of Lee's hobbies are: ATVing the area's extensive forestry road network, hiking the vast mountain trails, and camping the area's numerous recreation sites.
Lee organizes the annual charity hockey draft tournament. He was also a member of the Princeton Volunteer Fire Department from 2004-2009. He found himself involved in many scenarios including: gas leaks, auto fires, numerous home & structure fires, the infamous Princeton Hotel, and forest fires.
