HAPPY NEWS YEARS! I look forward to 2018, and i welcome all calls and business.
2017 was a crazy year. Just when we thought condo prices couldn't go higher, they did, and house prices stayed low for the whole year. I had so many multiple offer situations, out of the last 12 sales, 9 had multiple offers, one with over 14 offers that took it $100,000 over asking. Others went $40,000, $60,000, $80,000 over.
Now its spring of 2018, I have just had multiple offers on my last 2 sales.
654 w 6th Ave listed at $929,000 because the previous sold just 2 doors down from them in their same complex with the same lay out sold for $830,000 in June 2017. So we thought adding 12% more would do it. We had multiple offers and it sold for $1,016,000, plus I saves the sellers $19,000 in commission. Then I sold them into a house in Delta, negotiated a deal, 50k under asking and then got another 10k off after inspection.
403 1925 w 2nd Ave. Multiple offers again, price to come.
IF YOU HIRE A FULL COMMISSION REALTOR YOU ARE GIVING YOUR MONEY AWAY. IN THIS MARKET ANY PROPERTY THAT STANDS, AND HAS A ROOF AND WINDOWS SELLS FOR TOP DOLLAR, TRUST ME!!!!
FOR APPRECIATION TO ALL THOSE THAT BUY OR SELL WITH ME FROM JULY 2017 ONWARD, I WILL DONATE 5% OF MY ALREADY LOW COMMISSION TO THE CHARITY OF THEIR CHOICE. ITS MY WAY OF SAYING THANK YOU AND GIVING BACK. MENTION THAT YOU SAW THIS IN MY AD.
THE SUMMER of 2015 STARTED THE UPHILL SWING AGAIN FOR PROPERTIES, AND 2015 WAS THE BEST VANCOUVER HAS SEEN IN SOME TIME. IT CONTINUED INTO THE SUMMER AND EARLY FALL OF 2016 BREAKING RECORDS AND PRICES. HOWEVER IN JUNE WE ACTIVE REALTORS SENSED A CHANGE COMING AND I ADVISED MY CLIENTS TO SELL QUICKLY WITH THE RIGHT PRICE. THOSE THAT DID WERE THE LAST TO GET THE HIGH PRICES ESTABLISHED. THOSE WHO DID NOT HEED ADVICE FOUND THEMSELVES IN A POSITION TO HAVE TO TAKE LESS AS THE YEAR WENT ON. IN JULY 3.6 OUT OF 10 LISTINGS WERE SELLING. IN AUG IT 3 OUT OF 10, BY DEC HOME SALES WERE FALLING DRASTICALLY AND SO WERE PRICES. CONDOS WERE FARING A BIT BETTER BUT THEY LOOKED TO FALL AS WELL. MANY WERE FEARFUL OF A CORRECTION TO COME IN CONDOS AS WELL, BUT WITH THE NEW LAW PASSED THIS SPRING FOR 1ST TIME BUYERS, THE 2017 CONDO MARKET IS SOARING WHILE HOME PRICES LAG. What will happen in 2018? Well indicators say the market will be strong again, but one never knows. A correction could happen like in 2016, so don't wait if you need to sell. Call me.
IF PRICED PROPERLY, EXPECT YOUR PROPERTY TO SELL ANYWHERE FROM 1 TO 3 WEEKS, DEPENDING ON THE PROPERTY, AREA AND SIZE. I HAVE SOLD ALL OF MY LISTINGS MOST WITH TOP DOLLAR PRICES BEATING OTHER COMPARABLE'S SALES AND SAVING SELLERS MORE, NETTING THEM MORE..THAT IS KEY.( READ MY HAPPY CUSTOMER COMMENTS) Remember I have over 400 Happy Customers, only a few are shown, but I have over 400: houses, duplex's, townhouses, condos, freehold, leasehold, co-op.
( NUMBERS AND $$ PER SQ FTG'S DO NOT LIE, DON'T LET OTHER AGENTS FOOL YOU) I CAN SHOW YOU THE NUMBERS:
HERE ARE A FEW OF THE BEST in 2017 but there are too many to mention;
2$ 1235 w 10th ave. WOW, this 2 bdrm had the largest turn out I have seen in a long time. 80 groups through, I sent the document package to 50 groups, and 12 offers came in and we sold it for $89,000 over asking. It went far past what the seller and I expected and everyone was thrilled.
101 2195 w 5th ave, 1 bdrm, Gorgeous patio condo in a rainscreened building. we had a huge turn out, and multiple offers. 40 groups at least, and sold it for $603000 a price I am proud of. The unit needed a renovation but the patio send the price up.
106 1922 W 7TH AVE, A 2 bdrm, 2 bath, with a huge private fenced yard facing south on a quiet street. Sounds good doesn't it? Well hundreds thought so as well. Now it was a complete reno project, neglected for 30 years, but I send the documents package to over 60 groups, and looked after showings all week and 4 inspections. Got 14 offers and sold the property for $100,000 over asking ( does that sound like full service, and does it sound like agents cooperate?) I say so!!
206 2520 Manitoba st, a nice 2 bdrm 2 bath, but facing the busy street of Broadway,. We priced it aggressively but we stil got several offers and we sold it for $20,000 over asking. That was for 839$ a sq ft compared to the unit sold above by full commission realtors at $802 a sq ft. do the math, at a 1000 sq ft, that a lot of extra money and don't forget the $15,000 in saved commission on top of that. The sellers used me to test and see if 1% really worked and he was so impressed hes written me a fabulous reference and is sending me to his friends ( see reference below)

CALL ME, MEET ME, I CANS HOW YOU WHY I SELL PROPERTIES THE WAY I DO!!
YOU HAVE TO KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THE MLS SYSTEM:
WHOEVER PUTS THE SIGN ON YOUR LAWN, REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU SELL WILL GET THE CALLS FROM THE BUYER. THAT IS HOW THE MLS SYSTEM WORKS! DON'T LET ANY OTHER AGENT TELL YOU ANY DIFFERENTLY, ITS SIMPLY HOW THIS SYSTEM IS SET UP AND ITS WHY I CAN SELL YOUR HOME FOR TOP DOLLAR AND NET YOU MORE BECAUSE ITS DESIGNED THAT WAY. iT'S HOW THE AGENT WRITES THE AD, THE PICTURES, THE FLOOR PLAN, THE MARKETING SKILLS THAT MAKE THE DIFFERENCE NOT THE COMMISSION ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE. BUYERS MAKE THE DECISION TO BUY, IN A SELLERS MARKET OR A BUYERS MARKET, BUYERS ALWAYS MAKE THAT DECISION.
PS. IF YOU HAVE AN OLD HOME, OR A BUILDING LOT, CALL ME. I HAVE BUILDERS WAITING TO BUY IN ALL AREAS, YOU WILL RECEIVE TOP DOLLAR, SELL QUICKLY AND PAY MUCH LESS. THERE IS NO NEED TO PAY FULL COMMISSION ON ANYTHING!!!!!MANY BUILDERS CALL DIRECTLY TO THE PERSON WHO HAS THE SIGN ON YOUR LAWN.
THE KEY TO SUCCESS IN TODAY'S MARKET IS PRICING. Call me for a market evaluation and I'll show you how I pinpoint prices and get fast sales!!! Buyers want value, market value so this is no time to add extra just to see how you will do. That small extra can make the difference between selling and sitting. I'll price your home right on, sell it quickly, get you top market value, and I'll do it for a minimum $6,950.00 and save you thousands of dollars. You will be HAPPY about the results!!! 13 yrs now in 1%, and 15 yrs total in the business and over 380 units sold, I've seen almost everything and know how to price a property and how to negotiate and most important, how to sell for top dollar.
Consistently a Top Producer in 1% and within the Real Estate Board, with 13 yrs of real estate experience specializing on the Westside, Downtown and Eastside. Whether you are buying or selling a home, there are two things you can need to depend on...results and honesty.
Having lived in Vancouver for over 28 years, I know this area. I have a Medallion Club standing for several years including 2014, which is in top 10% of all realtors in the lower mainland, and high sales every year, 1 0r 2 below Medallion each year. I have over 380 combined sales, even though theres only 75 solds showing under my name,( a company max that we can display) in the last 11 years. I also have a Management and Marketing Diploma, a 2 year Psychology Certificate, and an enormous amount of experience in Sales and Customer Service, Real Estate, marketing and management. I offer excellent communication skills, a patient ear for listening, a savvy knowledge of negotiating and most of all honesty and integrity. I work long hours and I am rewarded by happy customers.
I have many references from not only very happy sellers who saved thousands with full service, but also from buyers who I gave patient and continuous service, steering them from danger and unreasonable prices when possible and never pressuring them. Also with all of my experience of handling hundreds of contracts I used that experience to negotiate a great deal for them.
I am 100% committed to making sure all of your real estate needs are met and not only will I provide full service real estate services (full MLS exposure, mls.ca, realtylink.org, Real Estate Weekly, numerous pictures, signage, info box, showings, open houses......I am there for inspections, appraisals, key delivery...absolutely everything) for thousands of $$$$ less than the competitors.

I will provide them all with my service.
REFERENCES: I have copied and pasted a few below, some very recent so take a look.
Buyers, let my experience help you find exactly what you are looking for with confidence. I negotiate excellent prices for my sellers, so hire me to negotiate for you!!!!
Only an experienced agent with years of experience and all the sales to back it can write up a contract that protects you and works for you. AND NEGOTIATE? How else can someone negotiate a good price for you if they rarely negotiate.??? With almost 380 sales under my belt I know how to work a negotiation. EXPERIENCE MATTERS, MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT!! I have met many realtors who say they have been in the business for 25 yrs, yet many make alot of mistakes.
2017 sale, 206 2520 Manitoba st:
"When my wife and I made the decision to list our home, we started by meeting with a few full commission realtors. In our research, we discovered One Percent Realty. We were a bit skeptical at first, but decided it couldn't hurt to hear how they might approach the sale of our condo. We contacted April and were very impressed with what she had to say. She offered every service and marketing perk her competition offered, but charged a much more reasonable commission. With all else being equal, we decided to give April a shot, and we are certainly glad we did! April was always responsive, professional, friendly and extremely helpful. She pointed out the 'little things' that should be improved upon pre-open house that we had overlooked and kept in constant contact with us as the open house weekend approached. End result, we sold over asking on multiple offers and couldn't be happier with how the negotiation was handled. I've since recommended her to friends and wouldn't hesitate to continue doing so. Why pay more? Call April."
