  •  It’s your equity. Keep more of it.
  •  Sell any property under $600,000 for $6950 flat fee
  •  Sell any property over $600,000 for 1% of sale price + $950

  •  No fine print, no catch

Yes, they are “regular” REALTORs in every sense of the word. They simply charge less. That’s it. End of story. On average, sellers in Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Mission, and the Tri-Cities save $5000-$10,000 per transaction by working with Dave and John, when compared to more “typical” commission rates. Though the world has progressed technologically so much in the last few decades, making business smarter and more efficient, prevailing “typical” commission rates have remained the same. This, despite the fact that housing prices in the Lower Mainland have skyrocketed. So, REALTORs’ jobs have been made easier due to better technology, and, at the same time, Realtors have received a very large pay increase due to rising housing prices. More pay for less work….does this make sense to you?

Yet, the only reason commission rates have remained the same is because so many sellers continue to pay those rates. You might have paid those rates as well…but you do not have to.

Though not all commissions are the same, the prevailing rate within Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Mission, and the Tri-cities is 7% of the 1st $100,000 of the sale price and 2.5% of the balance. This can add up fast. On a $300,000 sale, this would be $12,000 + tax, while on a $600,000 sale, this adds to $19,500 + tax. With John and Dave, you will pay only $6950 + GST for any property that sells for under $600,000, and 1% of the sale price + $950 + GST for anything that sells over $600,000. That’s it. This includes everything – including the buyer’s agent’s fee.

Results You can count on

  •  In 2014, we outsold 99% of our competitors
  •  Same Services. Same Results. Why Pay More?

Year after year, Dave and John qualify for the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver’s MLS Medallion club, which recognizes the top 10% of REALTORS in the industry. In fact, according to Board statistics, in 2013, both Dave and John ranked in the top 100 REALTORS within the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver – out of several thousand REALTORS within the Board – the 2nd largest Real Estate Board in Canada.

Having built a very large client base within Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Mission and the Tri-cities, Dave and John receive numerous referrals from past clients who have sold and saved, and they are always happy to help new clients.

It’s quite simple: a property that shows well, that is priced right, and that is marketed competently, will sell, regardless of who is listing it, and regardless of how much commission the seller has agreed to pay. Buyers don’t care whose name is on the lawn sign, or whose smiling face is beside the REALTOR.ca listing. Buyers only care about whether the property they are considering purchasing fits their criteria and their budget. This is intuitively obvious.

That is why, when John and Dave list your property, you can count on your property being sold within a reasonable amount of time, for the highest price your property can fetch. Your property will be listed where everyone is looking for homes for sale, including MLS, other websites, and newsprint. Your property will be marketed to the world to its maximum potential. Buyers’ agents from other local brokerages will show your property. You will sell, and you will get the best price you can get. You will simply walk away with more money in your pocket.

John and Dave aren’t gimmicky, and they don’t promise you the world. But they do promise to act with honesty and integrity, and to treat you as they would want to be treated themselves; they do promise to market your home to the best of their ability using the best methods available in the industry; they do promise to sell your home for all it’s worth; and they do promise that you will always save money.

No smoke.
No mirrors.
Just Results.
