Born in Salmon Arm and raised in Cranbrook, BC, Shannon moved to the Creston Valley as a young woman working as a waitress and then becoming a cashier at what was then Overwaitea Foods. She left Overwaitea to raise her children. After being a stay at home Mom for 3 years she decided it was time to pursue the career she always wanted, and the rest, as they say, is history. Shannon Veitch has been a Licensed Realtor in the Creston Valley for the last 28 years, successfully listing and selling properties to a long list of happy clients. Dedication, honesty, knowledge and experience are the basis for her successful career.
