It’s time to present the Western Canada 2017 Best of HomeStars Awards! Every year at this time of year, we turn our minds to analyzing and rewarding those in our vast community of home professionals that consistently do fantastic work for our homeowners.

To announce the winners, we start on the coast, in Vancouver. We took some time out of our hectic schedule to take in some of the inspiring natural and architectural beauty of Vancouver.

Ambling through Vancouver is a treat for so many reasons. We love the fanciful names and facades of many of the still-intact vintage apartment buildings.

On Tuesday the 24th of January, the HomeStars team will present BC’s Best Of HomeStars Awards at a gala lunch held at the Westwood Plateau Golf Club. As usual we’re excited to meet the provinces’ finest home professionals and hear about exciting offerings for homeowners that they’re planning for the upcoming year.

Stay tuned for some fun, behind the scenes pics of the HomeStars Western Tour.
