Sell Your Home With John Carlson


Comprehensive Services. Award Winning Results.

Why Work with John Carlson?

I believe I am the SMART CHOICE when it comes to buying and selling a home in Greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. As a local resident, with a 24 years experience and approximately 1,000 successfully closed transactions, I’ve got the tools to get the job done. I am a fully licensed, full-service agent in Maple Ridge, BC, happily serving my local communities.

Here’s the thing: recent years have brought about significant changes to the real estate industry. What makes me different and so successful? I don’t fight the changes in our industry – I embrace them. I offer a unique combination of an efficient business model, a full-service approach, and comprehensive marketing to ensure my clients get great results I don’t cut corners, and I don’t promise you the world, but I do promise to act with honesty and integrity and to sell your home for all it’s worth!


John, Thanks so much for making our lives so much easier with the sale of our house in such competent hands, we had no worries. John, your warm, caring understanding manner is your strong attribute. Craig and I always felt your honest, sincere advice was sound. We Applaud your success and wish you all the best in 2012!

John Carlson was my realtor for my home purchase in Coquitlam. Not only was he my real estate agent he was an advocate for me.
We talked about different neighbourhoods and discussed their character. He was able to work with my schedule to arrange a time to meet. It was fast-paced and John was able to discuss with me and prioritize elements in my purchase so that it went smoothly as possible and to close the deal. He was able to advocate on my behalf to get a price lower than the asking price. My home is a three bedroom two bath condo with a large patio in the heart of Coquitlam Centre close to the sky train. I am pleased with the result and I am making my place a comfortable home everyday.
Thanks John!

Thank you for providing me with your excellent real estate service. You have been very thorough with your work and it is much appreciated. Before I chose you at ‘One Percent Realty’ to represent my townhome sale, I was concerned that I would receive inferior real estate service as I was paying you half the fee of other Real estate companies for the same work. I was thus pleasantly surprised and am happy to see that there are real estate companies out there that are willing to provide good real estate service to the community at a lower cost. Thank you also for your honesty in sharing your inside info of how real estate fees are shared amongst agents in completed sales. I will certainly be calling you when I have more work available! All the best with expanding your company!
