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. And 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. And 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 & The North Shore
As a current proud resident of Lions Bay, and having 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. I provide expertise and knowledge to my clients across the North Shore from Deep Cove through to Squamish and throughout the Downtown Vancouver core.
Ethical Group Purpose, Vision & Mission Statements
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. And I ensure this by applying my trade through the lens of my personal Purpose, Vision, and Mission statements, and core values. I share my purpose, vision, and mission statements, as well as my core values here for all to see so that potential clients can know what to expect when working with me, but also what they can hold me accountable to.

The Ethical Group Team Core Values
in the face of difficulty and challenges, we don’t let it slow us down or stop us. We recognize that difficult times can be times of opportunity to grow and expand our horizons and to become better at what we do and who we are. We face the fear and do it anyways.
Regardless of success achieved, we always remain humble. We don’t beat our own drum. We let our actions and success speak for themselves. Maintaining a healthy dose of humility keeps us open and curious, knowing that there is opportunity to learn from anyone & anywhere, seek and provide honest feedback, be open to personal change, to learn from mistakes and successes in equal measure, and to never underestimate our competition. It keeps us both on our toes and likeable.
We know that buying and selling a home can be stressful for anyone. We always put ourselves in the shoes of our clients to understand and relate to each client’s situation. Being empathetic towards our clients helps to create a bond that creates a positive, memorable client experience and a long-lasting relationship built on trust.
With a well thought out approach, and attention to detail we are always open to finding better, more efficient and effective ways to do business. There’s always more to learn, more ways to to improve, more to tweak or more to consider. Innovation ensures our market leadership.
Integrity / Transparency:
Integrity means doing the right thing in all circumstances, with honesty, respect and accountability. Regardless of both good and bad news, we respectfully deliver the straight goods, the implications and the options for best solutions. We live by this ensuring we are always acting in the best interests of our client. 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.
Remaining positive nurtures and manifests positive, desired results. This keeps you and those around you motivated, productive and focused on delivering success.
We always take the pragmatic approach. Using logic and reason, we simply deal with the real facts in front of us rather than the “what ifs” to ensure that we make sound, efficient decisions.
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. Our confidence in our “team” concept is so unflappable that asking for help should be considered a given, not a burden.
