Why I Work at One Percent Realty
After working for over 8 years at a ‘Traditional, Big Box, Cookie Cutter, Brand Name’ brokerage, I often questioned, the real estate market has changed so much, why haven’t the ‘Big Box, Cookie Cutter, Brand Name’ brokerages changed with it?
Paying higher commissions was just something everyone did, our parents did it, our grandparents did it, to them, it was the norm, and there were no alternatives, until now!
We have all witnessed how technology has streamlined businesses around the world in the past decade. From online shopping to global communications, I focus on the trending consumers’ technological needs at the fairest rates.
So why pay more for something I can do for you at a much lower cost?
One Percent Realty is the future of the Real Estate Market, today!
What you can save with One Percent Realty
*compared with a broker charging 5%, not all brokers charge the same. Not intended to induce a breach of an existing buyer or seller contract
Real estate agents spend most of their time soliciting business. In fact, like it or not, most real estate agents feel that half of their job is done the night they list your home for sale. This is contrary to the seller's belief that when their property is listed that is when the REALTOR® job starts. By offering full service at a lower commission rate our salespeople spend less time looking for business and more time doing our job, which is selling your property.
While we are really strong believers in the power of the MLS® system to effectively market homes to the buying public, we also believe it may not be worth what the industry often charges for it. For the most part, it requires the same amount of effort to sell a $100,000 property as it does a $700,000 property. They both get listed on the MLS® system, shown to potential clients, advertised, contracts gets negotiated on them both. Yet the commission expense would be a dramatic 7x higher on the $700,000 home versus the $100,000 one (e.g. using a 5% commission rate). It did not make any sense to me either!

Why you should list with One Percent Realty
Lets say the average home in the GTA was about $760,000 last year. Now, if a traditional MLS® broker were to charge you a 5% total commission* to sell your home, you would end up paying $38,000 + HST in commissions on that home!
However, with us, you pay a total of $7,950 + HST for homes under $700,000 (or 1% + $950 + HST for homes above $700,000).
That works out to savings of $29,450 + HST on the average home!
$7,950 TOTAL COMMISSION + HST to sell your home with
ONE PERCENT REALTY!
(For Homes Over $700K its 1% + $950 + HST Total)

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What Do You Charge?
A. For homes listed under $700,000 we charge a flat rate of $7,950 plus HST. If your home is $350,000 or $599,000 we charge the same $7,950. For homes listed over $700,000, we charge 1% + $950 (plus HST). So homes under $700,000 are just $7,950, a home priced at $800,000 is $8,950, $900,000 is $9,950 and so forth. See the savings chart on our onepercentrealty.com website to see how much of your hard earned money you can save while still receiving the full MLS® service you expect!
Q. Are Your Listings on MLS® and www.realtor.ca?
A. Yes and yes!
Q. How Does an Agent for the Buyer Get Paid? Do I Have to Pay Them?
A. The $7,950 commission includes $3,500 of commission to the Buyer's representative. With a sale under $700,000 with One Percent Realty representing the Seller and the Buyer being represented by a Cooperating Brokerage: the One Percent listing agent earns $3,500, the cooperating Brokerage earns $3,500, and the remaining $950 pays for the One Percent agent’s expenses incurred in selling your home.
Q. Are There Any Upfront Fees to List Your Home with One Percent Realty?
Q. Will Other Agents Show One Percent Listings?
A. Easily the most frequently asked question...Why would an agent show his/her client a One Percent listing when that agent can show a different listing and possibly earn more? There are several reasons that other agents do show One Percent listings. (1) Agents have an ethical duty to show all listings, regardless of commission, unless they are authorized by their client to do otherwise, (2) agents still earn a commission (3) buyers can easily find One Percent listings on a number of websites including http://www.REALTOR.ca or http://www.onepercentrealty.com.
Q. Does One Percent Realty Work?
A. Yes One Percent Realty works! Clients can save many thousands of $$$ in real estate commission as thousands of other Canadians have! Your property will attract a buyer if priced realistically. Paying thousands more in commission is not what will sell your property, it will sell because of the exposure we provide to attract the right buyer for your home.
Q. How Does The $7,950 Break Down?
A. $3,500 for me ("listing agent"), $3,500 for the buyer's agent ("selling agent"), $950 disbursements (includes the fee to my office when I sell your home, advertising costs & MLS® system fee). You pay absolutely nothing to me until your home is sold! One Percent Realty sells many properties across Canada. One Percent REALTORS® don't have the overhead costs as many other agents have and our low commission structure allows us to focus on serving our clients instead of wasting valuable time soliciting new business.
Q. What Do You Mean By "Full Real Estate Services"?
A. When I promise to provide Full Real Estate Services this includes listing your property on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS®) of our Board, http://www.REALTOR.ca , http://www.onepercentrealty.com , taking professional photos, advertising your property, for sale sign, lock box, showings, all documentation and contracts, negotiations, keeping you informed, cooperating with brokerages representing buyers, responding to inquiries - THE WORKS!
