• are curious, growth-oriented, love to make all the pieces of a puzzle fit.
  • are a continuous learner, in an environment that supports continuous learning by reimbursing course fees.
  • have outstanding critical reading and research skills.
  • have a diploma or degree in a real estate related program and you may (or not) be on the Appraisal track.
  • have work experience that demonstrates your proactive nature, your ability to both focus and challenge, all while getting the work done.

The Opportunity:

We have full-time, permanent opportunities for both Research Analysts and AIC Candidate Members.

As a Research Analyst, with the required educational credentials, we will support you in the appraisal track.  Or you can grow your career performing research and analysis on real estate, land, leases, economic impact and feasibility-all under the direction of a Senior Appraiser.

As a Candidate Member, you consult with clients about their appraisal requirements, and then quote, prepare and manage the assignments.  A Senior Appraiser will provide mentorship, guidance and interesting assignments to fast-track your career.

For all roles, continuous education is supported by reimbursing course fees.  Kent-Macpherson also pays for E & O insurance and professional dues for Candidate Members.

What’s special?

This is what we say in our Corporate Profile:

Established in 1973, and located in Kelowna, BC, Kent-Macpherson is one of Western Canada’s leading authorities in real estate valuation and advisory services.  Partners, appraisers, associates, analysts and support staff work together to cover all disciplines of real estate appraisal and property valuation serving both the private and public sectors in our region.

Beyond that, we work hard and laugh lots.  We each get our heart’s desire for our birthday-be it apple pie, Nanaimo Bars, or black bean brownies.  We have a weekly group social, during office hours, so we can all come up for air and get to know each other beyond our work.  We make five Fridays off happen every summer, taking full advantage of all the Sunny Okanagan has to offer.

We have some of the brightest, most capable appraisers on our team.  Being around greatness will make you even better!

Call if you are just a bit curious-we can chat, consider all the opportunities within, and see what is best for you.  If you are really interested, send a resume to Jocelynn Hawkins, and we will get to know each other. No closing date-we always want to talk with talented people.


We are searching for Yoda, “one who knows”. If you are a seasoned appraiser thinking about retirement, but not yet ready; if you are wanting to offer something different to the industry while still having time to golf, ski or hike – we have an opportunity for you to redefine your career in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. We are looking for this individual to do a mix of appraising and mentoring.

Kent-Macpherson offers a wide range of services covering all disciplines of real estate appraisal and advisory services. With a reputation for professionalism and excellence in our industry, Kent-Macpherson has grown into one of Western Canada’s leading authorities in real estate valuation and consultation. We offer our Appraisers and Candidate Appraisers stability, the opportunity to work with a diverse client base and a high-volume portfolio.

Our business continues to grow and we need support in the mentorship of Candidate Appraisers and appraisal files as desired.  If this is the time in your life to do something that offers new rewards, email Jocelynn Hawkins, or call 250-763-2236.

Be our Yoda.
