As an avid skier, boater, ironman athlete, surfer, realtor and landscape artist, “Action Jaxon” Jurome loves living in the Okanagan lifestyle and has a gift for helping others share living in a place unlike anywhere else in the world.

Born and raised in Kelowna, Jaxon is a third generation real estate agent and associate broker working throughout the Central Okanagan, co-founding the Jurome Real Estate Group with his father, David Jurome, in 2017.

Together, they help people with all aspects of residential real estate from luxury homes to acreages to single family and strata properties.

Jaxon is also an award-winning land-scape artist who draws inspiration from the power of nature.

Through his connections in the real estate industry and natural talents as an artist, Jaxon has been able to use his creativity and people skills to bring the community together and assist many charity events and campaigns that often revolve around art, mental health and physical well-being.

As the president of the of the Central Okanagan Chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists, Jaxon helped lead one of Canada’s largest groups of artists, with 160 members.

He joined the executive board in 2018 and put his expertise to use applying for grants, city cultural projects and organizing shows/events working with an executive team that advocates for the promotion of visual arts in the community.

He also works with other charity groups, and his personal artworks in support of mental health fund campaigns have been instrumental for both raising funds and awareness about mental health initiatives in the community.

Jaxon’s leadership as an award-winning realtor has also allowed him to help hundreds of clients navigate the challenging real estate market since he first became licensed in 2016.
