Hello my name is Kris Skoupas. Welcome to my website.
After completing an Honours degree in Fine Arts from York University, Kris moved from Toronto to Whistler in 1993 to ski for a season. Almost 25 years later, she is still thrilled to call Whistler home and lists spending a bluebird day on the slopes or relaxing on the shores of a lake with her husband and 3 children as an ideal way to spend a day.
With an extensive background in sales and customer service, the transition into real estate was a natural one for Kris, who, shortly after unpacking her bags, decided that Whistler was where she wanted to stay and build a life. “The West is the best!” she says, “from the lifestyle, to the climate, the people, and the small town feel in Whistler. It is just so different and I knew that it was home.”
For Kris, real estate is not a single transaction job about selling or buying property. It is about building a positive, honest, and lasting relationship with her clients. Her passion for her job grows out of her love for meeting new people and helping them get to know the community that she loves so much.
The ongoing mission of the Whistler Real Estate Co. Ltd. is to assist buyers and sellers in making the best real estate decisions possible by providing relevant knowledge, collaboration, professionalism and a memorable experience.
The Whistler Real Estate Company has consistently been ranked the number 1 real estate company in Whistler for over 30 years, surpassing the competition in both the total number of reported real estate listings and sales.
The company was founded in a Creekside trailer in 1978 and in 1980, we became one of the original businesses in the new Whistler Village. The company continued to grow its operations and, in 1998, added a second office in Pemberton. In 2013/2014 we purchased, fully renovated, and moved into our new Whistler location on Main Street, across from the Whistler Public Library.
Our company has played an integral role in Whistler’s development since the resort’s early days. This historical involvement gives our agents a distinct advantage when it comes to understanding the complexity of Whistler’s real estate market — a complexity based on property rights, restrictions and requirements unique to resort living and not found in traditional urban marketplaces.
Over three decades of providing exceptional real estate services in Whistler and its surrounding areas means that our staff not only understand this unique legal framework, but they have also played a role in creating it. This intimate, first-hand knowledge leads to the highest value in both investment and lifestyle for our clients.
