About Dedora Schoenne

We Are Your Multi-Ability Firm

Schoenne (pronounced sho-nee) & Associates was founded in 1983 in Vernon, B.C. by Wolfe Schoenne and has been a long trusted real estate appraisal and consulting firm. In 2019, with an equally experienced team, the firm was re-named Dedora Schoenne Appraisers. Building and maintaining our reputation as ethical, skilled, and trustworthy professionals will always be our paramount goal.

Our office has been using Schoenne & Associates (now Dedora Schoenne Appraisers) for the last 16+ years. They are a trusted partner who exude the utmost professionalism, ethical integrity and customer relations. They have helped many of our clients realize the dream of making a home their home.
