Edith has been marketing, evaluating, negotiating and selling Real-estate since 1982. From her second year onward Edith has sold enough homes every year to be on the exclusive medallion list, awarded only to the top 10% of Fraser Valley real estate agents. In the last 8 years she has been in the top 1% of all 2500+ Realtors on the Fraser Valley board and in recent years as high as top 3. Edith attributes her success to hard work, ingenuity, creativeness and dedication to the industry. Edith believes that to be the best agent possible one has work FULL TIME and be completely submersed in the business.
Edith has been married for over 40 years and has 3 wonderful grown children. Edith met her husband while studying at UBC and graduated there in 1973 with an undergrad in Commerce. Her son Jonathan is a partner with the Katronis team, Edith’s youngest son is in the building business and her daughter Lisa who was a licensed realtor is on Maternity leave. Edith is proud to say that all three of her children graduated from Trinity Western University. When Edith is not working, she loves spending time with her 2 young grandchildren, reading, walking, spending time with friends and neighbours and worshiping at Sunday morning church. Edith is also very close with her German and Greek Relatives who she visits as often as she can.
Edith is proud to have developed a team of Realtors that create the Katronis Real Estate Group. Each Realtor and staff member brings the same values and passion that Edith has for the business. The combined efforts of the team creates the ultimate real Estate experience that is unmatched by any Fraser Valley Real Estate Group or other.
Team Manager and Expert Negotiator
Jonathan has been has been a licensed agent since 2006. In his first year as a Licensed Realtor Jonathan achieved “Rookie of the Year” award for Homelife Western Canada and has been in the top 5% for the company every year since then. Jonathan studied business at Trinity Western University with a focus in Finance. While studying at University he interned at Export Development Canada where he worked as a research analyst studying market trends in various pharmaceutical sectors. After graduating from University, Jonathan spent a year travelling gaining “worldly experiences” before starting his Real Estate career. Real Estate was a natural choice as he had grown up with it all of his life. His apprenticeship with Edith (his mother) started at an early age when she would bring him to appointments if baby sitters were unavailable. As Jonathan grew older he would help Edith with her community giveaways and deliver poinsettias plants at Christmas time and pumpkins on Halloween. Now, fully immersed in the business, Jonathan and Edith work together to create the best possible experience for their Real Estate clients. In Jonathans spare time he goes hiking with his wife, fishing with his dad and competes in squash tournaments on the occasional weekend. Jonathan’s favourite Quote is “Winners never quit and quitters never win.”

I joined Homelife Cloverdale in 2010 and became part of The Katronis Team in 2012. There is nothing more satisfying than helping Buyers and Sellers achieve their goals and dreams. Although sometimes transactions are triggered by unhappy events, helping people sort through the process and get the result they need is tremendously rewarding. Not only do I get to be in the room when they find out they have been successful in their transaction – I get to tell them about it!
I believe one has to move into this industry with an outlook like no other agent. There are hundreds of agents available and I strive to think a little outside the box to give my clients an experience that they won’t soon forget. I ensure that all of the needs and wants are taken care of to make for a smooth transaction and create a personal level of confidence to trust me to look after their current and future needs.
I possess Curiosity, creativity and a passion for doing the right thing – even if it’s the hardest thing! I take my work extremely seriously, but myself – not at all. I always enjoy life, laughing and giving satisfaction to those around me.
