"Of the four real estate agents we've dealt with in buying and selling our homes, Rick was far and away the best.  We only wish we had found him earlier."   Ursula H., Ottawa

I help both Buyers and Sellers save money in their real estate deals in the Ottawa area.

You have my word that I will give you the vital information and service  that you need to buy or sell wisely. I'll always treat you and your transaction with the highest respect and integrity. And, I'll do so with a dash of good humour.

"Of several realtors I’ve worked with over the last few years, none has been as conscientious and innovative as Rick Gabriel of One Percent Realty.  He’s also a great communicator; kept me informed on the number of viewers and their comments which made me feel part of the process. Another advantage of working with Rick; One Percent Realty's reasonable commission compared to higher commissions charged by mainstream realtors. Same or better calibre of service at a fraction of the cost."

Rick sold my house at a price I was very satisfied with and he sold it in only two weeks after it was listed. 

attribute these results to Rick’s advice and impressive patience. Over the 15 months that it took me to get my house ready for sale, Rick was never far away. 

With his quiet professional manner, he was excellent in providing strategic advice. And, as the MLS listing date got closer, he suggested specific approaches which I'm happy I followed.  

I was always working effectively because of Rick’s guidance. I benefited from his experience in the Ottawa real estate market and in his calm negotiation skills in closing the sale.  I totally recommend Rick to anyone interested in selling their home.

Rick helped me sell my house in downtown Ottawa in the Summer of 2017.  I had previously tried to sell it with a full-commission agency, but was unsuccessful.  

I would recommend Rick highly.  He is friendly, knowledgeable, and both prompt and clear in his communications. 

In addition, he is proactive in his efforts to find buyers, and held regular Open Houses.  Most importantly, it was clear to me that achieving the highest possible price for me was Rick's top priority.  

In the end, the house sold quickly and I saved a huge amount of money thanks to his agency's 1% commission model.  I would definitely work with Rick again.

Working with Rick was a real joy. He helped us get through a purchase-and-sale that saw some ups and downs. 

First we had an agreement on a house but Rick advised us to walk away from it when the inspection revealed significant structural problems. Then we found another house and the pressure was on to sell our existing one in a soft market.  

The clock was ticking and the sharks were circling.

 At one point, we were thinking of pulling the plug and staying put despite a lot of showings and Open Houses.  Rick did not flinch for a single moment. He was never pushy with his advice but he was always willing to provide his opinion, even it did not coincide with him getting a fast commission.  His unwavering integrity set him apart from other real estate agents we've dealt with. 
In the negotiation for our final transaction it was insightful to watch Rick's calm, deliberate style in action as he went about getting us what we wanted. We were so happy that Rick was on our side during that process. 

Of the four real estate agents we've dealt with in buying and selling our homes, Rick was far and away the best.  We only wish we had found him earlier.

Rick was patient and professional while guiding us toward the right property.

We are so thankful for all his help!

 K&P,  Kanata, Ontario


"Rick, I was really, really impressed by your professionalism and your advice to me, as a novice buyer. And also by your level-headed "sticking to objectives" on my behalf.

You were on top of the situation at every moment, getting me the first viewing, finding out that the offers were not going to wait until Sunday at 7 pm as the listing had originally specified and your late night intervention to get my offer ready to present.

You also delivered the offer, containing appropriate protections for me and good strategies. And, you waited patiently for developments to unfold, with timely situational updates to me as they did. 

You did it all, with cool finesse, propriety, and I must admit, a somewhat formal sense of humour that I appreciate."

Rosemary C., Ottawa, Ontario 


"Rick, you have been just terrific, everything a top-quality professional agent should be, in helping us sell our condo.

You will be our agent of choice when we make the decision to go ahead and buy again, possibly next Spring.

We will be sure to recommend you to my parents as well when their place is put up for sale. 

We are both very grateful for the time and effort you have devoted to us and hope you will represent us again."

Suzanne S., Ottawa, Ontario
