Meet Paul

After searching for properties across Canada Paul and his wife Sue moved to Blind Bay in 2009. They were attracted to this area by its natural beauty, spectacular scenery, pristine recreational features of Shuswap Lake, and local culture.

Sue and Paul quickly became involved with the social aspects of curling in Salmon Arm and Chase, golfing at Shuswap Lake Golf Club, events at the Cedar Center, community-building activities with the Shuswap Estates Community Association, and charitable work with the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life.

Prior to moving here, Paul gained an incredible level of experiences in sales, marketing, advertising, and education. Starting as a sales rep in a Johnson & Johnson company, by age 28 Paul was reporting to the President as Marketing Manager. In 1986, Paul founded Science & Medicine Canada and grew it into the largest medical education company in Canada. Along the way, Paul was a Managing Director at a large international ad agency and founded his own ad agency and digital marketing company.

In 2012, Paul entered public service and was elected as Area C Director for the Columbia Shuswap Regional District. Paul lead a number of initiatives to benefit our community including the Area C Official Community Plan, Area C Liquid Waste Management Plan, Area C Recreational Needs Survey, Area C Parks Plan, Docks and Buoys Bylaw, Building Inspection, Area C Housing Needs Study, expansion of the Cedar Heights Water Treatment System, escheating and upgrading of the Sunnybrae Water Treatment System, and creation of the bulk water service in Sorrento-Blind Bay Park. As a strong parks proponent he helped spearhead improvements to Sunnybrae Park, Sorrento-Blind Bay Park, White Lake Park and Eagle Bay Park, and helped to create Mt Tuam Bike Park and walking trail. Paul Chaired  the Shuswap Watershed Council and Shuswap Tourism and Co-Chaired the CSRD Board. He participated in Shuswap Trail Roundtables and sat on the boards of the Salmon Arm Economic Development Society and Shuswap Community Futures. He co-founded the South Shuswap Housing Society and the South Shuswap Transportation Society and their South Shuswap Rides program. Paul lead in the development of the Shuswap Economic Development Society and the South Shuswap Non-Profit Network. He currently is President of the South Shuswap Transportation Society,  and member of the Strategic Planning Committee at Cedar Heights Community Association.

Paul takes great joy in doing things that benefit our community and its residents. Working hard, giving back and helping others has always been a mantra for Paul.

The transition to real estate seemed to be a natural career path for Paul given his marketing and advertising background and local government experience, and strong advocacy of the Shuswap and its unique lifestyle. Says Paul, “It’s very likely that I’m one of the biggest cheerleaders for the Shuswap as a great place to live.”

As a REALTOR® at RE/MAX Shuswap Realty, Paul strives to differentiate himself from others by providing more complete and accurate information, implementing exceptional marketing, paying attention to the details and being a strong negotiator. He’s known for maintaining the highest standards of integrity while being an exceptional communicator. 

Paul aims to provide the highest level of service to his clients and takes deep pride in helping them exceed their real estate goals.


Here’s what Paul’s clients have to say about working with him….

Having Paul Demenok sell my home was the most rewarding experience I have had with a realtor. He put a lot of work into earning his commission and made my life a lot easier.

His thorough research resulted in a recommended sale price that was well matched with market conditions at that time. He provided a booklet that he wrote on how to best stage and present a home for sale, which I found valuable when preparing my home for listing. He contracts with an excellent photographer whose photos certainly complimented the appearance of my home. My detailed listing was posted on the MLS in a timely manner, exactly when he said it would be. He even arranged an open house, which is almost unheard of now-a-days.

My home sold three days after my listing was posted, which sure saved a lot of work and aggravation for me in preparing my home for showings day after day. Finally, his “after sale” follow up, acting as a liaison to meet the buyer’s and seller’s needs, made the conveyancing of my home go smoothly. Many Thanks Paul !!”

“We were blown away by Paul’s attention to his detailed research and preparation. Knowing we were relocating from out of province, Paul would preview homes for us, saving us time and give us valuable input on his observations. His local knowledge guided us immensely with the purchase of our home. We highly recommend Paul’s services to anyone buying or selling their home.”

“Paul just a note to thank you for your assistance in getting our home ready for sale. The analysis you prepared for us was excellent. A lot of information, but presented in a logical straightforward fashion that made it easy to understand. You were very helpful throughout the process. Thanks Paul, your expertise was greatly appreciated.”

– Blaine C.-January, 2024

“Huge shout out to Paul Demenok. He wasn’t the realtor for the sellers or us as the buyers but invested his time to show us our new home several times. The best part was an ebook he sent us on how to sell a home. It was fantastic! We only got 40 pages in and started working on all the tips in the book and had an offer not long after! If you’re looking for a realtor who’s got solid advice and a real commitment to clients we recommend Paul!”

– Michelle Moore-September 4, 2023

“Paul has a MUST READ book that anyone selling a home or looking for a home would be advised to read–thanks Paul for your help…..”
