Current market experience may be an agent’s biggest asset to a client. We sold over 200 properties between 2015 and 2016, and that gives us a real advantage over most of our competition when it comes to:

  • Strategies relating to pricing, preparation, and presentation
  • Negotiating and defending your price and terms
  • Identifying and avoiding potential pitfalls and disadvantageous situations
  • Identifying and solving potential obstacles to a successful sale
  • Professional-grade negotiating skills in your corner

In 32 years of combined real estate sales, we both have unblemished records of service.

Savings You’ll Enjoy

Yes, we are “regular” real estate agents in every sense of the word. We simply charge less. That’s it. End of story.

*Though not all commissions are the same, the prevailing rate within the lower mainland is 7% of the 1st $100,000 of the sale price and 2.5% of the balance. This can add up fast.

Our commission structure is simple: we charge $6950 to sell anything under $600,000, and 1% of the sale price + $950 to sell anything over $600,000.

Typically, our clients save $5000, $10,000, or even $15,000 per transaction by working us. And there’s no catch.

  • Sell any property under $600,000 for $6,950 flat fee
  • Sell any property over $600,000 for 1% of sale price plus $950
  • We are still full service agents
  • No fine print, no catch

The  primary reason typical commission rates have remained the same is because so many sellers have agreed to pay those rates. You might have paid those rates as well…but why pay more than you have to?

Ultimately, success in the real estate industry is about consistently ensuring that the client’s needs are met and goals are achieved.  Delivering results is what counts. Year after year, we take pride knowing that the bulk of our business comes from past clients who have been happy enough with the results we have helped them to achieve to recommend us to their friends and family, and to use us again. It is because of this network of happy clients that we have been able to consistently rank among the top agents in the business, both at our company, and in the Real Estate Board rankings overall.

  • We are both in the MLS® Medallion Club, which recognizes the top 10% of all member agents
  • We are within the top 1-2% of all REALTORS® in the REBGV for several years running
  • We have well over 1000 combined career sales
  • We sold over 200 properties between 2015-2016

Our aim is always to ensure that our clients get the best value possible in a smooth, stress-free transaction.

It’s Simple

A property that shows well, that is priced right, and that is marketed professionally, 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 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 we list your property, you can count on your property being sold within a reasonable amount of time, for a great price. Your property will be advertised in places everyone is looking, including MLS®, other websites, and newsprint. Your property will be marketed to the world to its maximum potential using leading marketing techniques. Buyers’ agents from other local brokerages will show your property. You will get advice from two of the top agents in the business.  You will sell, and you will get the best price you can get. You will simply walk away with more money in your pocket.

We highly recommend John Carlson/John & Dave as an excellent Realtor to work with. We are very happy with the service we received and the results. We sold our house quickly and saved about $15,000 in commissions compared to what some other companies charge. We also worked with John/John & Dave on the purchase of our next home and we were satisfied with the professionalism and work ethic on that transaction as well. Overall we had a very good experience and got great value. We will recommend John/John & Dave to our family and friends!

Sandy & JimMaple Ridge

We have never used One Percent Realty before but we thought we’d give them a try and we could not have been more pleased with the results. John was very helpful and informative as we went through the process. He demonstrated diligence by pulling out all available comparables in the area so we could make an informed decision before settling on a listing price. He kept us up to date during the entire process through phone calls, meetings and text messages. We were never left wondering about what was happening and he was always open to our questions or concerns. The description, pictures, virtual tour and brochures of our house were superb and really showcased our house in the best possible light. Upon closing the sale, he was thorough and very patient about going through the contract with us to ensure we knew exactly what we were signing.  We would definitely use John again in the future and will recommend him to others.  Thank you, John!

Kevin & Teresa L.Maple Ridge

I couldn’t be happier with the service and professionalism of John and his team, and I can recommend him without any hesitation to anyone interested in selling their property.

Dear David, Thanks you so very much for everything and all your help. We are being honest when we say we have never had such a good realtor before you. You went over and beyond helping my mom. We wish you the very best and hope you keep in touch. That would be nice.
P.S. My mom loves the townhouse.
