Why did I join One Percent Realty?
I get asked this question all the time. Why would I choose to charge a lower commission rate than the industry standard? Well, the answer is very simple: I believe a 1% commission rate to sell your home is a fair and reasonable rate, given today’s real estate market prices. If I can offer a fair and reasonable commission rate, but still offer exactly the same services that all other realtors offer, while always working to provide an optimal client-realtor home buying/selling experience, the end result will be a win-win situation. My clients will save a significant amount of money while knowing I put their best interests ahead of anyone else’s and my own. As for myself, I will be fully satisfied with my work as I will have earned a fair wage while knowing I did my best for my client.
Areas of Expertise - Downtown Vancouver and the North Shore
As a current proud resident of Lions Bay for 4 years, and having previously lived in the downtown Vancouver core for over 20 years, I have first-hand, resident knowledge of both Downtown Vancouver and the entire North Shore from Deep Cove through to Squamish.
What sets me apart?
What sets me apart from the endless sea of realtors to choose from? I can't speak for others, but I can speak to what I can confidently deliver. I strongly believe in providing the best possible client-realtor experience possible. I ensure this by applying my trade through the lens of the team's core values. I share our core values here for all to see so that potential clients can know what to expect when working with me, and what they can hold me accountable to.
The Ethical Group - Core Values
in the face of difficulty and challenges, we don’t let it slow us down. We recognize that difficult times can be an opportunity to grow and expand our horizons, allowing us to become better at what we do and who we are as people. We face the fear and do it anyway.
We know that buying and selling a home is a stressful and emotional time, so we will always put ourselves in the shoes of our clients. We take the time to understand our client's concerns, fears, perspective, and motivations and act accordingly. It's your home and your future. We are here to guide you to the best possible result to get you there. Respectfully earning your trust to create a positive, memorable client experience is our goal.
Maintaining a healthy dose of humility keeps us open and curious. We know that there is always an opportunity to learn from anyone and anywhere, to seek and provide honest feedback, to learn from mistakes and successes in equal measure, and to never underestimate the competition. It keeps us on our toes and at the top of our game.
Integrity / Transparency:
Integrity means doing the right thing in all circumstances, with honesty, respect, and accountability. Whether it's good or bad news, we respectfully deliver the straight goods, the implications, and the options for the right solutions to meet the best interests of our clients. It is the cornerstone of our words, actions, and reputation.
Say what you do and do what you say. And do it in a manner that is respectful of other people’s time, feelings, and situation. If you aren't going to do it, don’t say it. Its all about expectations and managing them accordingly.
As individuals, we come together as one to efficiently accomplish a common goal. As a team, we not only ensure that we do our part, but we always willingly offer help to our teammates in any way necessary to create the best possible outcome. Our confidence in our “team” concept is so unflappable that asking for help should be considered a given, not a burden.
