Why Brell?

As a Certified International Property Specialist, Brell  is uniquely positioned to work with buyers and sellers on a global scale. Her move to Chris Holm & Associates, under the “RE/MAX International” umbrella is the latest step in building an exciting global business.


Her primary areas of business are centred in the North Okanagan and  La Manzanilla in the Costalegre region of Jalisco, Mexico. Like a sunflower, she follows the sun, living half year in  each based on weather and buying cycles. Adding the RE/MAX network to her existing global database allows her to connect with ease to those who are looking to buy or sell real estate around the world.


In her 12th year of hands on real estate,  she blends past customer service, systems management and a quest for continuous improvement and wields a vast palette to create extraordinarily valuable results for her clients.


She loves to create… Art, Good Food, Photography and Laughter. Bringing the creative process to her real estate business allows her to constantly explore and define desired outcomes for her clients and her business partners.


Brenda Ellis, most frequently known as  “Brell” is a partner, a mom, a grammie, a friend and a REALTOR®


...Get Inside My Head...

The soul is dyed the colour of its thoughts.

 Day to day what we think and do is who we become.

Adapted from Heraclitus

My vision is to become a leading International marketer and provider of valued real estate products and services at home and abroad.

 A licensed REALTOR since 2005, I've spent many years cultivating my professional personna. Having merged world class tourism / hospitality experiences at Silver Star Mountain and Predator Ridge Golf Resort with Quality and Environmental Systems Management in the Log home manufacturing industry has led me to a place where I can say with confidence:


"I am an expert at determining and meeting customer requirements and developing systems that deliver results."



Excellence is an art won by training and habituation.

 We do not act right because we have virtue or excellence, but rather,

we have those because we have acted rightly.


We are what we repeatedly do.

 Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.




It is my goal to constantly strive for improvement, growth and balance in all aspects of my life.
