"You have worked hard to pay your mortgage and build equity in your home, use a full service Real Estate Agent that will save you money." Larson R. Owston
How does One Percent Realty work?
PLAIN and SIMPLE! You want full service on MLS® from a professional salesperson at a low commission – that's One Percent Realty.
I provide you full real estate services at a commission rate of only $7,950 for all homes under $700,000. Properties over $700,000 are charged at a rate of 1% of the selling price + $950.
We have full cooperation with other real estate agents who sell approximately three quarters of our MLS® listing sales.
The concept behind One Percent Realty is providing you full service but at a realistic commission structure. For that full service on MLS® we charge just $7,950 for all homes under $700,000 and for homes over $700,000 we charge 1% of the selling price plus $950. The $950 covers the typical disbursement costs to marketing your home and the balance is split equally between the buying and selling agents.
Plain and Simple! No complicated percentage formulas. Straight forward rates that are easy on the pocketbook and easy to understand. You have worked hard to build equity and pay down your mortgage, why not keep as much money for yourself?
Why Sell with Larson R. Owston?
Multi-year Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver MEDALLION CLUB member.
I sell a lot of real estate! Finishing 2017 in the top 3% of all real estate agents in the Greater Vancouver area in terms of the number of deals done within the year. My clients trust me to buy or sell their homes. This is my full time job and I am fully immersed in real estate everyday. I am dedicated to my clients to provide them with outstanding service and value.
This is at least the same level or greater you would expect from the other full commission real estate agents. During our intitial meeting a Comparative Market Analysis market report is prepared informing you of the current real estate market in your area and the type of home whether a condo, townhouse or detached house. Along with comparable sales and active listings of similar homes like yours to determine a market listing price. We will also talk about a strategy to setting the list price, marketing and set out a timeline of events. High quality professional digital photos of the interior and exterior are done at a separate appointment. Professionally installed for sale sign and post when allowable or a condo sign placed outside for strata buildings. Your home will be marketed on the MLS® real estate board and featured on other popular websites where all buyers look such as REALTOR.ca, REW.ca, OnePercentRealty.com. All inquiries and home showings are done by Larson and not through an unknown assistant or a lockbox. I keep my clients informed and educated throughout the entire process of listing and selling their property. I am always available for you with no rush or pressure sales tactics. Just experienced and knowledgeable advice.
My experience and knowledge of working as a full service real estate agent is applied to all my clients. I started my real estate career working with a large, internationally recognised real estate company. However, after a few years, I did not believe it was fair or justifiable to be charging "old school" commission fees. The Greater Vancouver area house values have dramatically increased over the years yet the commission rates of 7% on first $100,000 and 2.5% on the balance of the sale price have remained the same.
My knowledge of the Vancouver housing market started at a very early age as my parents were actively involved in buying and selling real estate. Born in Montreal and moving to East Vancouver in 1973, I have seen the growth of our city from pre-EXPO 86 to beyond 2010 Winter Olympics. My knowledge about Vancouver's neighbourhoods and communities is both valuable and beneficial to my clients. I live in Vancouver and have resided in many different areas of the city both east and westside.
During my time off work, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends, eating delicious food, enjoying a glass of wine or two, travelling to new destinations and taking in automotive events in my classic cars.
