We have a phenomenal team at Jane Hoffman Group.

Each agent and member of our staff brings a distinctive personality to the mix. We’d like you to get to know us a little bit better!

We’ve asked everyone to answer some questions that will give us a little insight into who they really are.

This week, we’re learning about our newest team member, Realtor®, Manny Brar:

Favourite Okanagan Activity?

One of my favourite things to do is to enjoy the world-class mountain biking trails of Silver Star Mountain Resort while camping up there with my friends. It’s a fantastic park, and you really get some amazing mountain biking weather through the summer. They have great trails for all skill levels and it’s always a lot of fun; it doesn’t matter if you’re going on a more leisurely ride with your family, or scaring yourself on some downhill runs with your buddies!

What was your first job? Did you like it?

I grew up on an orchard, so my first job was helping my dad on the farm. I really enjoy working with and learning from my dad. You learn a lot of skills and lessons growing up on a family-run farm, and I am extremely grateful to have had that experience! Although I enjoyed most of the work around the farm, I have to admit that I absolutely hated picking peaches in that South Okanagan sun!

What would you like to accomplish in your job this year?

This year I would like to focus on making more connections, friends, and relationships within our wonderful community. We have such kind, friendly, and innovative people within our city, and it’s always amazing getting to know the people that make this valley so great! It really is fantastic to work with so many wonderful people, and so I also plan to continue to provide the absolute best service I can to everyone I work with.

Favourite place to travel outside of the Okanagan?

Outside of the Okanagan Valley, I always enjoy travelling to the Sunshine Coast and the Banff area with my wife and dogs. Now, we can’t wait to share these adventures with our newborn daughter, Mila!

If you could invent an app, what would it do?

I’m sure I could think of making a more useful app, but I think having one that would let humans and dogs communicate would be pretty amazing! I have two dogs, and they have very different personalities. I feel like I have a good grasp of what they are thinking most of the time, but not always… So, it would be pretty cool to be able to fluently communicate with dogs. That’s my app idea!


What inspires you?

I take inspiration from the outdoors: the mountains, the views, the sunshine, and all the natural beauty of our amazing valley. I am inspired by my wonderful wife and my daughter, Mila! It should go without saying, but I take a lot of inspiration from Jane Hoffman –she is one of the most amazing people I have had the pleasure of knowing. And not only Jane, but the whole Jane Hoffman Group, is made up of amazing individuals who bring their own strengths to the table while working as a cohesive unit. That is inspiring to me!

We can’t wait to showcase what our other team members have to share. Stay tuned to find out more about each member of the Jane Hoffman Group.
